My journey so far....
I was introduced to Reiki by a friend, at the time I didn’t know anything about it at all. A year later, I started using Reiki and it was then that I realised its potential, I found Reiki helped me cope with the stressful life I was leading at the time. So I decided to take level 2, to see if it could help me sort out some of my emotional "clutter"; and I found Reiki brought 2 qualities into my life, awareness and with it came compassion. Both helped me remove some of my "blocks" and allowed me to grow.
When I decided to take the master level, I knew that I wanted Reiki to be part of my daily life and that I was ready to introduce Reiki to more people around me. I would like other communities to experience a life with Reiki; so I have started my practice; I still have much to discover and I would like to learn other forms of Reiki such as Jikiden and Holy Fire.
I also practice Indian Head Massage, which is part of Ayurveda which means the science of life (Ayur = life,Veda = science or knowledge) and is a natural systems of healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. After I qualified with ITEC, I started to practice immediately, thanks to my experience as a Reiki practitioner.
As a practitioner, continuous learning is an important part of my development; this lead me to travel to Japan in November 2013 and meet Tadao Yamaguchi. I met him briefly in London to introduce myself and ask if I could visit his Jikiden Reiki Centre in Kyoto. His warm and caring welcome during my visit in Kyoto was very touching and we had
a very inspirational chat (via a translator).
In January 2015 I travelled to India, on an Educational Tour with MSCM to learn more about Ayurveda and sample what this 5,000-year-old system of natural healing had to offer and I discovered that daily routines i.e. massage, use of spices and diet, help us maintain a healthy balance between body, mind, and spirit.
In August 2016 I had an amazing opportunity to travel to China with the Confucius Institute based in LSBU, where I was studying Chinese. And during the Educational Tour I had a chance to re/discover TCM and other cultural traditions such as Taiji and Yijinjing.
I'm still get very excited and curious to discover what else I can use to maintain my well-being,
it makes my journey so interesting!
I 'm still travelling........
