Why Reiki for Relationships?
One of the questions I hear the most is this: Why Reiki for couples and families?
Other variations abound, but the heart of the questions is that people want to know why I'm so passionate about treating not just individuals but also their relationships, the bonds between them, and the energetic environments of families.
The short answer is this: after my second child was born, I almost killed myself.
I had to check in to a hospital for nearly 5 days to get the care I needed in order to recover from an excruciatingly traumatic relationship experience.
My ex-boyfriend, my infant's father, started dating someone else before she was born. He then went on to introduce that person (incidentally, once a yoga teacher of mine) to our child without asking me if I thought it seemed acceptable. In fact, he didn't even tell me he was dating someone until after his new girlfriend and our daughter had been introduced. Dick move.
For months, ever since our child was born, essentially, I'd been trying to reconcile our differences. I wanted to work things out with him for the sake of our family. An intact family where everyone could thrive was the most beautiful vision I could possibly dream up at the time, and I was willing to do literally everything in my power to bring that dream to life.
Had I known he was already with someone else when our daughter was born, I probably could have prevented myself from even conceiving that dream at the time. As the story went, letting it die was the most painful thing I've ever felt. I once heard word witch extraordinaire and inspiration icon Danielle LaPorte says that divorce was "like having [her] bones broken very, very slowly, one limb after the next..."
I was never married to my ex, but I totally relate to this.
Instead of waxing on about the all-consuming grief I felt, I will skip to the end. For some reason the Golden Gods and Goddesses of the online business world saw fit to connect me with two of the most amazing lifestyle, creativity and business mentors in the entire world.
One of them, Navae Lukas, is an utter goddess of spiritual alchemy and a shadow priestess for the masses of lonely, depressed and wrathful women of the world. I was one of them. She helped me tap into the pain I felt (she journeyed DEEP into the rabbit hole with me in a way that no one else I've ever known was brave enough to do), and helped me transmute it all into something of value, an offering. She illuminated the exact path I needed to take to get those feelings out in a way that would help people instead of harming them.
Then, my second mystical maven of creativity, Sarah Marie Thompson of Wild and Creative, guided me through the hoops and mazes of content creation and website design in order to create this beautiful platform, which I am now using to launch these precious offerings out into the world. It is because of the help of these two AMAZING women that Infinite Genesis is here right now. If not for them, you wouldn't be reading this.
So, to get back to the original question, "Why Reiki for relationships?" the short answer is this:
It was something I needed.
It was something I needed to offer, and something I needed to receive. Not only did I treat myself, my own relationships and my family with Reiki and experience profound healing over the course of just a few short months, the spiritual practice of being in business and developing these offerings for all of the other people in the world who are needing something like this has become my healing therapy.
All of my jealousy, all of my pain, all of my anguish, all of my rage, all of my grief...
...is now the FUEL to the FIRE of my passion for this work.
There's so much more I could add to this, but I would be writing for days.
Let me just end for now with this:
If you're in a space where your most intimate relationship are causing you excruciating pain...
If your marriage, partnership, lovership, and/or your relationship with your kids has put you in a place where you're experiencing utterly mind-numbing, soul-crushing defeat...
I've got you.
I feel you.
I know exactly where you're at right now.
I've been there.
I made it through.
So can you.
I'm here to help.
Go to my offerings page, comb through my sessions page, and find the style of Reiki therapy that's right for you. And order it.
You deserve to come out of this with your heart, soul, body and mind intact... and to never feel like this again.
