At the Awaken Wellness Fair last weekend, I was set up to be doing reiki healing. It was my first fair, and I will admit I was a little bit shy and nervous and I wasn’t getting as many clients as the healers around me. Luckily I was able to tell myself that I can get at least one client before the end of the day. I received a “Mind, Body, Soul” healing session from the healer, David, next to me. I knew this would help get my energy up in order to receive a new client. I met an older lady outside of the entrance to the fair. She asked how she could get in for free and luckily I had an extra coupon for free entry! I gave her my card and told her that I facilitate reiki healing. She said, “I would try that.” So, this lady became my first paying reiki client! She enjoyed the brief 20 minute session, and she said that she felt a lot better and “lighter” after the session.
Before this, I also met a healer named Juanita. I just found out that the ride I was counting on to take me back to Philadelphia from New York could no longer make it. Of course, I could just take Megabus, but I still felt disappointed that my friends were no longer coming to see me and I had to find another way home. Juanita waved to me and I went over to her section. She asked if she could give me a hug. She must have felt that I really needed it in that moment, because I was so happy to give her a hug and I felt more welcomed to be a part of the fair.
She is a reiki energy healer and she also creates her own jewelry and infuses it with reiki energy. Here are her websites: Your Reiki Relief & Nitjuan Designs. She allowed me to try her tuning fork. I was very excited because I am currently studying sound healing in a class called ReikiSound. I tapped the tuning fork on the quartz crystal and let it vibrate near my 3rd eye, and all the way down my Hara line to my feet for grounding. I could only feel good energy from Juanita and I was also happy that she took the time to chat with me and give me tips on how to grow my professionalism as a reiki healer. And she probably knows that we are all connected as humans, so it doesn’t hurt help someone else out!
This is something that I just read in the book “I AM Love” by Tyler & Corey McEnroe. In the thought patterns that we were raised with, it would have appeared that Juanita and I were both competing for the same clients on that day. But my reiki level 1 teacher always said that he believed that there wasn’t really room for fierce competition in reiki. The right clients will find the right practitioners and the right students will be guided to the teacher that is best for them.
