Today, is my third day of attending a Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki Master class. On the first day, I participated in a Holy Fire Healing Experience. Our teacher led us in a meditation as we lay on a treatment table. Afterwards, we were asked to write about our experiences. Here are the notes from my journal –
“Started to see colors. Blue, then green, then orange. I could see the images and shadows of my guides looking over me. I felt so protected. My hands were at my sides and involuntary began to move up over me. Rising up, I left my body. Tears started coming as I felt so much pure love from above.
I nodded to “The Team,” my loving guides, and understood what I needed to do. There was a complete understanding, and an agreement that they would always support me. Then, there was another wave of tears as I came to grips with the knowing of how much they loved me, as my hands continued to slowly rise. Then, my hands gradually moved over my Solar Plexus Chakra. Intense heat. I smiled.
Acceptance and understanding to be guided in order to do what needs to be done. And, so it is.”
It has been just over 60 days since I committed to Reiki full time. The road that led me to this point included walking away from five different jobs in less than three years while I did Reiki on the side. I felt a gentle pull each time, and knew deep down that I was doing the right thing – regardless of how it looked to others. I used to follow the money. But, now I follow my heart.
For me, healing work could no longer be a part time thing. I had seen too much, and experienced too many miracles to simply devote part of my time to the work. It made no sense to me to not commit to healing full time, regardless of any uncertainties regarding finances, etc.
Great peace comes from knowing that I am exactly where I need to be, and doing what I am supposed to be doing. Gray areas disappear as Reiki gives us a razor sharp focus. Things either flow with the Reiki way of life or they don’t. The things that do not flow are left behind, since they do not serve our best interests. We let go, as we lighten our load in order to reach new heights.
When I made this last leap of faith, I felt that I owed it to my loving guides. They have always been there for me, and it was time to go “all in” on healing. This Holy Fire Healing Experience was a confirmation for me, as they let me know how much they loved me and supported my work. Healing is indeed a team effort.
Today, I will receive the final Holy Fire Ignition as my healing journey continues. I am living in gratitude as I realize how far I have come. But, I also understand that I have so much more to do. It’s a responsibility, and one that I do not take lightly. We will continue to do our part to heal the world – one Soul at a time.
