I completed my Reiki stage 1&2 probably about 4 years ago. This allowed me to practise Reiki on myself and others. It gave me a little bit of insight on how to perform Reiki on animals but not as much as I wanted.
For many years it has been a dream of mine to be able to help animals by energy healing, especially horses. I’ve always been more comfortable around animals than humans. I just click instantly with animals but it takes me a while to click with humans because I sometimes feel so awkward around them. Like it’s not natural for me. During my college years I became quite passionate about energy healing. It’s when I completed my stage 1&2 Reiki courses and my final term paper was all about Reiki and horses. My dream was to rescue neglected horses and other animals and nurse them back to health on my own yard. I wanted animals who hadn’t been treated with love and kindness to find sanctuary or peace at my yard. I wanted to reassure them that they would be okay.
In the past couple of years I lost my way with Reiki. I ended up going down a dark route and I completely forgot about all the ways Reiki could benefit and help me. I believe I needed to go through an experience like that to be able to find my way back to the light and to appreciate energy healing. I needed that experience to realise how much i was neglected my own body and soul.
December last year my mum and I had a psychic come round to our home to give us individual readings. I went first and during the reading she mentioned a course would come up on March 3rd that I should take up. She said I would take up 2/3 courses but 1 of them would benefit me more than the others. After that I kept the date in my head. I kept checking my calender to see how far away March 3rd was but by February I had almost completely forgotten about it. A few weeks later I got an email from an old recruitment company advertising qualifications you can get from online courses and the course that was first advertised to me was an animal Reiki course. So I had a browse through their courses and there were so many! Like loads! For so many different subjects. Money was pretty tight, but they had an offer on so I picked 2 courses, one of them being the animal reiki course. On March 5th it clicked in my head. I rushed to my phone, checked my emails and the email advertising the animal reiki course was sent on March 3rd. I’ll admit, I was pretty freaked out, but I took it as a sign. I suppose it was something I needed to do.
This year I’ve reconnected with my mind, body and soul. I’m finding more peace in meditation, making it a lot easier to be mindful. Every morning I shuffle my angel cards and pick two that stand out to me. I’m using my crystals more often. My breathing has regulated and I’m all together feeling not as chaotic as what I was. Pieces of me seem to be joining back together. The best part is I am able to be more open and honest about it all. The paranoia of what others may think of me is gone. I don’t care if people think I’m crazy or that Reiki, crystals and angel cards are bullshit. I know what has and hasn’t worked for me. I know what makes me feel better and I god damn well know that other peoples negativty is not gonna change me.
It took me a while to find the motivation to complete the course but last week I did it and it was possibly the most interesting course I have ever done. It gave me more insight into meditation, mindfulness, reiki, auras and all things spiritual.
Oplex Courses the website is called. I’d recommend it. It’s helped me gain more knowledge and I’m excited to put that knowledge to practise.
Wishing you all the best,
