It's a funny story ... I was really keen to have a belly button ring. All the cool kids had one. I was 25 and had a flat stomach and thought 'Why not?!' ... and ... as it turns out ... many reasons ... :0)
Anyway, the desire to have a metal bar in my belly button lead me to my first experience with Reiki Energy Healing. Not your every day story of healing. I went to the Hobart mall and found a place where they did piercing. The man was pleasant and the piercing was not really painful. He told me to lie on the bed for a few minutes in case I got dizzy. So I chatted to him for a while and then when I felt okay I left.
It was only after walking to the food court that I started to feel a bit 'woozy' ... and when I was right near the kebab place I fainted. The lovely lady from the kebab shop came over and put a cold towel on my head and I called my flatmate to come and pick me up.
My flatmate laughed at me and said 'Why didn't you tell me that you were getting your belly button pierced? I could have helped.' I did not really understand how. She said 'I can give you some ray kee to help with healing the piercing and balance your energy.' I was confused. She had never mentioned this 'ray kee' before. 'What is ray kee?' I asked. She said she would show me. So we went home and she had me sit on the couch next to her. She gently placed one hand over my belly button. After a few minutes the area near my belly button got hot and tingly - it was not unpleasant, just felt odd. I also started to feel calmer, more relaxed and less dizzy. After about 20 minutes she took her hand away and the area near my belly button felt very cold.
She continued to do some gentle healing over the next few days and my belly button healed and I felt a lot more balanced.
After this experience I asked my flatmate what else Reiki Energy could be used for ... turns out lots of things ... period pain, confusion, headaches, sadness, stomach aches, anger ... all sorts of physical, emotional and spiritual issues. So I decided to do the Reiki Level One training for myself then I could treat myself all the time. It was the best thing I could have done.
Now I am a fully qualified a Reiki Master and I teach other people how to do Reiki Energy Healing. It is such a blast to see people opening up and using this gift for themselves and their family. I love it.
This year I am discovering the FABULOUS benefits of moving meditations. It started when I was given a brilliant audio track from a personal trainer (from the USA) called Erin Stutland, who does fitness classes while saying positive affirmations out loud and getting her class to repeat them:
'I ... AM ... STRONG ... NOW ... your turn ... I ... HAVE ... ALL THAT I NEED! ... I AM HAPPY, HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND LOVED ... AND WHAT I SEEK IS ALSO SEEKING ME ... I MAKE SPACE FOR GREATNESS ... I CALL IN MY SUCCESS ... I FOCUS ON GIVING ... WHAT I GIVE IS WHAT I GET' ....
I was surprised and delighted that I REALLY enjoyed listening to the audio track! It was super-fun and it was really making a difference to my mood as I did my daily walk.
I also started to add my own affirmations, breath more deeply, walk more mindfully, see the view more clearly and listen to the sounds around me.
So I thought ... why not start a Walking Meditation group on the island and share some of these insights with others.
The Walking Meditation & Coffee group has been going since February this year and everyone is enjoying it ... I am so grateful.
We have some wonderful beaches, parks, a labyrinth and natural places around Phillip Island ... it's easy to pick a new place to meet each week.
Meditation is not all about sitting cross-legged and chanting 'Om' ... although that can be nice sometimes ... it can be a lovely, flowing combination of breathe, nature and some like-minded people.
If you are keen to join us ... give me a call. Pip :o)
