They say that either Reiki finds you or you are drawn to it when it is needed. In my case, this was very true. Around 4 years ago, I had been telling a friend about my lack of progress with counselling, following a major life upheaval. She recommended a lady for Reiki healing, Jill Waters a Reiki Master. who had also taught my friend. I could see that my friend had a new positivity and glow about her since learning this technique. I had received a Reiki treatment many years before however, it didn’t register until after I had seen Jill. So, with a very inquisitive mind and eager for inner peace, I booked an appointment. I have always been drawn to Holistic Therapies but didn't know why.
Reiki had found me at a time of crisis. And so my spiritual journey began. I went to see Jill for Reiki treatments once a week. She explained everything to me in great detail and, all of a sudden, it made perfect sense! Jill uses a hands-on method of Reiki, which I find much more comforting and is the same method I use today with my own clients. I responded so positively to these treatments; the sickly, knotty and nervous feeling in my stomach for years, disappeared as if by magic and I became much more peaceful.
Having worked for many years in the
corporate world and a single mother of two young children, I realised even
though our daily routine was achieving results, I wasn't actually living
or being present in the moment with my precious girls. So, it is with great
passion and calling that I practise the skills I have learnt along my spiritual
path. It was then I knew that I needed to carry out Reiki myself and set up Blossom Wellbeing in Bramhall, Cheshire...
Jill also suggested meditation, which for me has also been life-changing. Within two weeks of my seeing Jill and starting meditating, my counsellor signed me off. She said that the change in me was incredible! I was calmer, more peaceful, accepting of my situation and much more balanced; my outlook on life also became much more positive.
I have come to accept the negative thoughts I had been holding onto for so long and take them for what they were, something that happened in the past. I was hooked on meditation and it deepened my awareness of who I actually am. I began to finally feel awake, alive, like myself and happy in my own skin. I noticed that I was dealing with stress and everyday life differently too.
My parents are dental professionals and have to do continuous training to be able to practice. They went on a course called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I had never heard of it but my mother called me during the training. She was so convinced it was something I would be excited about that she ended up enrolling me on the next course! I read up a little about it and I have to say, I was very sceptical...
I showed up on the day with an open mind. Helena was an amazing teacher. I was captivated by what I was hearing. I was eager to put her claims to the test. You tap on acupressure points to release energy blockages. Helena asked if anyone was experiencing any physical pain at that moment. I had a split disc in my L4 region of my back, which was throbbing. Helena set up the tapping sequence with a specific statement about the pain and within two rounds of tapping, the pain had disappeared. I was astounded by the instant results and I knew immediately that I had to pass this on to the world, so Blossom Wellbeing was born!
My thirst for personal and spiritual development is growing daily. I am so passionate and focused on reducing stress, promoting relaxation and positivity, removing negative past learnt beliefs and creating a more positive outlook on life.
I am very lucky and grateful to have two inspiring mentors and I am committed to my own continued professional development. I practise Reiki, EFT, Meditation, Mindfulness and yoga on myself daily and regularly attend meetings, talks, lectures to enhance my skills and knowledge further.
