Today we completed the third class in our Reiki Level 3 (Master class), at Learn Reiki Philadelphia! I have completed Level 2 and soon to be Level 3, at Learn Reiki Philadelphia with Danielle Stimpson and I can only say good things about my experience. She makes it a very comfortable atmosphere to ask questions and share our experiences as if we are talking to a friend. And the quality of topics and activities (guided meditations, reiki session practice, client simulations etc..) are phenomenal. If you have an interest in gaining more wisdom and clarity in your life, I highly recommend taking Reiki Level 1 with Danielle.
That being said, I am soon to be a certified Reiki Master fresh off the block. It’s still in the process of coming together now (isn’t it always?), but I am getting myself ready to start offering reiki sessions professionally in Philadelphia, or anywhere around the world (via remote healing sessions). Yes, I still have my other jobs, but reiki is my passion and I’m going to start living my dream!
Tonight I was lucky enough to go out to dinner with a magical group of Reiki practitioners. I was the youngest one in the group, but now that I’m technically an adult, I didn’t feel too out of place. It actually felt very supportive to be in a group of older humans that practice Reiki.
Susannah Spanton of Reiki Melody, is the Reiki Master Teacher that invited me to the dinner. She invited me to P.F. Chang’s for a dinner with fellow Reiki practitioners to “talk about Reiki and inspirational stories, etc…”. I really had no idea what to expect.
Ever since I was little, I would always “plan” or picture or imagine how future events might play out. Even up to the very last second before arriving at the event, I might have anticipation building. I remember telling my mom one night (as a younger child), that I wanted myself to stop thinking so much about the future and the past, but only think about right now. That must have been my way of saying that I wanted to be more zen and practice being more present; but of course those ideas were not presented to me in that way at the time. I remember telling her; it’s ok if I think about the future, but not if I get upset if something doesn’t go the way I imagined it would.
Well I did have a few ideas or expectations about how the dinner might go, but since I have started practicing meditation and Reiki, my mind is not as over active, or future and past obsessed as it used to be.
So today I practiced letting go, clearing my mind, and letting myself connect with Source. In the end, I felt so blessed to be sitting around the table with 8 other light workers, sharing a delicious meal (after we blessed our food of course).
