Being on the front lines as an advocate of yoga, spiritual healing, Reiki, and other now dubbed “alternative healing” practices has, over the years, left me open to harsh criticism by my seemingly more pragmatic and sensible friends and family.
One reason for this is because people have a hard time with things they don’t see, and have no faith in what they feel…unless it is anger or hostility (that's for a later post). Another reason, I believe, has a lot to do with how some of my fellow Lightworkers represent themselves and the healing modalities they practice.
Some of my spiritual peeps make me cringe, but then again, I realize that this feeling is born out of fear of the loss of “respectability” for my avocation. I get it. I’m a work in progress. After all, they are just being themselves with rainbows colored clothing, drums, crystals, chanting, dancing on the subway…geez I could go on!
Though deep in my heart I am a flower child and my life mantra is “Love and Peace” I’ve learned to be careful in how I bring forth information about the healing arts. I manage to wrap the loving and guiding messages and information from the other dimensions in a manner that is not so…shall we say… “freaky-deaky” to my clients and fellow human beings. I am attempting to bring respectability to the healing arts without removing the Love and Peace.
Let's Talk More About Reiki and Healing
I’ve stopped hiding my knowledge and interest in the realm of spirituality. It is time now. Courage has been gained. Science is catching up to us lightworkers. More and more people are “getting it”, taking yoga classes, meditating, chanting, changing many life long, and sometime injurious, habits for a cleaner way of living. Having open discussions about Reiki, Acupuncture, The Reconnection, etc is better for the world at large. People are seeing the benefits of embracing these practices and they want to share their experiences.
I'm a voracious reader and lover of learning. This practice has taught me so much about Reiki and other healing modalities. I've gain insight from reading that helps me speak to my clients in a way they understand. When I learn something I apply it if it is appropriate. My clients get a fresh new me who is learning and expanding in skill and intellect. Now, I talk about Reiki and healing all the time.
Who are Your Healing Practice Advocates?
If you are a Reiki Master or a practitioner of any healing art and you are not sharing your gift with as many people as you would like assess your presentation. Could you benefit from reining it in a little? How you present yourself speaks volumes about how you feel about your profession. I take my healing practice very seriously. I don’t see why I cannot blend a professional connection with a medical doctor's office with Reiki or The Reconnection. If fact this is exactly what I’ve done, and I will pat myself on the back for representing Reiki, The Reconnection, and other healing methods in a professional way. The doctors I work with are among my greatest supporters.
What you see is only the tip of the iceberg of what you get!
With me you get information that is indeed love-drenched and warm positivity delivered in a professional manner that will not assail your current reality while your attitudes get a gentle adjustment. I will encourage you in the decalcification of your pineal gland, shine a light for you on the many paths to enlightenment and ascension, and introduce you to your truly Divine Self. All this delivered in a way that only a fun-loving native Brooklyn, New Yorker could.
I may leave my Om signs home and forego the flowers in my hair, but I’ll wear my Japa Malas, carry the Lapis Lazuli and burn the Nag Champa. After all, I’m a spiritual healer and a girl’s gotta represent!
