It was the night before my own Reiki Second Degree Attunement and I was excited but stressed too.
At 2 am, I was still awake, tossing and turning and feeling a bit ill.
However, it was the emotional turmoil which really had me worried. I had so much anxiety. Thoughts running through my head, "No one likes you."
Relationships gone awry were running through my brain and wreaking havoc with my ability to remain calm.
I took a deep breath and began a Reiki self treatment. When I reached my heart chakra, I became aware of a deep pain. Tuning in, I realized there was a knife in my heart.
It was a metaphor for betrayal of self in an attempt to fit in. All the times I changed to please others. Denying my own wisdom and innate truth.
"Can I remove it?" I asked my higher self.
I felt 'yes.' It was a buzz of electricity. Reaching into my heart space, I released the knife and filled the area with white light. Shortly thereafter, I fell asleep.

My Reiki Workshop Experience

The next day, as I was sitting in the sacred container of light created by my chosen Reiki Master/Teacher, I was overwhelmed with love. Love from the Ascended Masters I related to and also love from what I perceived as my higher self.
I saw an image of me breaking the surface of a great body of water, an ocean of emotion, and saw the strength of my arms as I moved through the waves. I felt powerful and supported to do this 'deep dive.'
At one point, I felt a golden key enter my crown.
Afterwards, as we practiced our Reiki Second Degree tools, I knew so much more was about to unfold. As it turns out, I started giving distance sessions long before I gave in person Reiki sessions. I embraced the energy of distance Reiki like a duck to water. It is still my deep passion.
Although I did eventually give full in person sessions, it wasn't until after I was attuned to Reiki Master and I thought, "Well, if I am going to do this I had better experience it all!"
The golden key continues to unfold as do other symbolic messages that I have received over the years. I understand that it is a deep unfolding of the mystery and awe of a higher state of consciousness. My Reiki tools plus more have supported this deep unfolding in ways that are difficult to describe.
You really have to experience it.
One thing I learned that day is that we all have the key to unlock the mystery.
It lies deep within us.
Your job is to claim it.

"Thank you so very much for your Reiki Attunement teachings, support and also some incredible wisdom and insight. It was very profound on so many levels.
So much came up to be released and renewed and I am learning to take it one step at a time. I have come to realize that healing work requires much patience and dedication and a commitment to go deeper and be gentle with ourselves; something I have to time and again remind myself. "
