What a nice surprise was to receive this note on the day of Halloween:
I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for sharing the gift of Reiki with me.
Last night was very hectic and stressful as I thought about a potentially uncomfortable conversation I needed to have with my boss first thing in the morning. I had a nightmare and woke up late after forgetting to set my alarm. I thought, “this day is going to be TERRIBLE.” I remembered your tips how to center yourself before the day and realized just because my day began full of stress didn’t mean i had to poison myself and others for the rest of the day.
I gave reiki to myself for 10 minutes. This gave me the strength and courage to take care of myself first despite my seemingly unrelenting obligations. I wrote in my journal, made a commitment to be less serious today, read part of a spiritual magazine, made my bed, fed my chicken, and talked to my dog.
I realized today was Halloween, so I threw on a 70’s floral shirt, vintage vest and felt hat. I looked in the mirror and found a snazzy, handsome, and fun guy looking back. YEAH BABY! I found that by adopting a silly outfit, I could let down the serious social mask I resented, but worked so hard to make others believe.
When I arrived at work, over an hour late, my boss took one look at me and burst out laughing. Instead of demands and grievances I gave my boss and myself the gift of letting go.
Today is working out great. We eventually did have our conversation but it was so easy that it makes me realize how much made-up stuff can cause havoc in our lives! Because of Reiki I was able to let the day unfold.
Thank you for the gift of Reiki and Happy Halloween!!!
I receive many emails with Reiki success stories but this one was simply fun and funny!
Reiki is a powerful stress reduction tool that can add fun, laughter and joy into our lives!
