as the blossom drops its petals
Last night after work, I sipped an eggnog latte and read Essential Reiki (and a few other books) while curled up on a chair at Barnes & Nobles. In it, the author mentions that she warns people about the “six month emotional clearing process that follows Reiki II” and says that “the changes are highly positive, but may be disconcerting”.
Disconcerting indeed. I have always believed that emotions – particularly repressed or unresolved emotions – play a greater role in our physical, emotional, and mental health than we realize. That’s why I am such a fan of holistic and alternative medicine. Of course, I did not really think they had affected me.
The experiences of the past few weeks have taught me otherwise. After each experience, however, I notice that I am lighter inside. My creativity is blossoming. And I am finally finding the words that have eluded me for so long. For all of that, I am thankful – no matter how painful and uncomfortable the process.
