Thank you for your interest in Simply Reiki.
I am a Level 2 Usui Reiki practitioner who has been practicing since 2013. I happened upon this beautiful method of healing in 2010 after my son was born and I developed chronic anxiety and insomnia. At the time, the most I slept was two hours a night. I was desperate and saw my home and work life deteriorate in front of me.
Then entered Reiki. After having read that it can help with many different physical, emotional, mental and spiritual issues, I decided to go for a treatment with Susan McDonald in Oakville. I was immediately impressed by the deep relaxation I felt during the session. I found out that after a Reiki attunement, one can do Reiki on themselves so I signed up for and completed the Level 1 course. Since then, I have completed the Level 2 course, have had regular treatments and started my own Reiki practice.
These days, I sleep a peaceful 7 to 8 hours a night with anxiety levels much reduced. My relationships at home and at work have undergone a complete 180 degree turn and work harmoniously on a day to day basis. Any conflicts that may happen are short lived. With the Level 2 Reiki attunement, you will be taught how to heal people and even past or future issues and situations from a temporal and physical distance. I have used this aspect of Reiki and I can tell you that it works wonderfully.
In my opinion, these are all compelling reasons to be grateful for the gift that is Reiki. However, for me the most compelling reason has to be what I consider to be a decisive push from the Universe towards personal growth. Reiki brings out in poignant ways what you need to see in your life that needs to be healed. And these things will be healed more and more as you commit to Reiki and Reiki commits to you. I believe that events in our lives, especially those in childhood, shape our reactions to challenging situations we encounter, giving us our automatic and at times less than optimal reactions. What many of us don’t see is that our reactions can be changed and new realities can be created. We as human beings are able to and meant to co-create our lives with the Universe. Reiki has helped me and continues to help me manifest more of what I want in my life. It is my sincere hope that Reiki helps you have a similar experience.
Peace and Blessings,
