GUEST BLOGGER Trish Guglielmo’s enthusiasm for her daily self-practice was apparent from the beginning. Here she shares the benefits of her first two months of daily self-treatment. If you’d like help writing about Reiki, click now to learn about WRITE REIKI.
I embarked on a journey of self healing after losing my mother and stepping down from an 11-year career. Meditation and crystal consciousness brought comfort, and an awareness of all my life’s blessings.
And then I found Reiki practice…
It seems ironic that I found myself by going back to my hometown. I signed up for Reiki training in Manhattan — quite a hike for someone living in the Catskills — but an exciting new beginning that reminded me that the city was where my spirit really took flight.
Reiki self care as a daily gift
Now self-treatment is a personal and fulfilling gift I give myself every day. The need to nurture others has finally subsided within me. I realize self-nurturing is the most rewarding thing I can do for myself, my family, and the universe.
The ability to calm my nerves, comfort my anxieties, and truly balance my body is a blessing. The benefits of my daily Reiki self-treatment continually amaze me.
Each self-practice has a calming effect. I feel extremely awake afterwards, as if my eyes are fine-tuned to the exact measure of clarity, and each breath is clean. The chatter and distraction of everyday things in my head exits without effort, and I am able to be present with myself.
My awareness of my Reiki hands and how they feel varies, but any pain or discomfort I have dissipates after I place my hands, as if an eraser wipes over the chalkboard of my mind.
Finding inner peace
The greatest benefit of self-practice is the awareness of putting my needs first, before giving to others. Only then am I truly present in my life, with all the blessings that surround me.
I cherish the time I practice, and I now have what I have been searching for: inner peace. I am eager to go out and share with everyone, mindful that my work begins with me, and my path is bright with possibilities.
Although I continue to be fascinated and present when giving others a Reiki treatment, it is the serenity and comfort I experience in daily self practice that warms my heart, and I am grateful.
