i had my first Reiki healing session with Colleen about a month ago. Needless to say, I was super skeptical about the whole process. She began the treatment with a body massage and then moved onto the Reiki and Sound Healing after that. She began the Reiki session by holding a pendulum over my body and moving down from my crown to my feet – hovering over the different Chakras in my body – to ascertain which of those were blocked and which were flowing freely.
as the pendulum approached my Throat Chakra, it began swinging backwards and forward rather than in a circle as it is meant to – indicating that it is blocked. (Which, “co-incidentally” is the same Chakra that I was drawn to based on the symbol alone). I had mentioned me choosing the Throat Chakra on my personal blog at some stage and the skeptic in me instantly wondered if Colleen had maybe just picked up on that.
she then drew the pendulum over my Heart Chakra and it began to swing in big round looping circles, leaning to one side – which Colleen explained is the female side of my body. Having the pendulum swing over my heart so wildly indicates to her that I have a very strong Heart Chakra – that I am an Empath, I absorb emotions of others and am sensitive and intuitive to their needs.
after learning more about the state of the Chakras and energy zones in my body, Colleen then administered the Reiki, she also used a combination of sound healing incorporating Tibetan Singing bowls – which vibrates within every cell of your body and feels amazing.
i can’t really explain how it made me feel – it wasn’t anything earth shattering or wildly explosive, i just felt calmer. more peaceful. more at one with the world. the grass outside looked greener and fresher and i just felt an overall sense of content.
since then, i came back to london and it has been about 3 weeks since i last saw colleen in south africa. in the middle of the week two weeks ago, i had an all fall down day. everything was terrible. i was feeling lonely – far away from my husband, far away from myself. i felt unhappy and irritable and things starting feeling stressful and overwhelming. i was starting to get snappy and horrible to be around – which is hard considering i spend most of my days by myself. it really was one of those days. without any warning or any other mention of how i was feeling, i suddenly received a message from colleen via twitter saying, “i think you need a top up”. i burst into tears right then and there. it was all so overwhelming how she could possibly have known how much i needed to get back to that feeling of calm, of balance of restored peace. and it came at exactly the right time.
i am converted.
