My favorite part of practicing reiki is the connections that I build with the curious and open clients I get to work with. Each session is an adventure and each client is an intrepid traveler. I love it when someone has an experience that stays with them for days or weeks after a session and provides them inspiration and motivation. I feel incredibly grateful and privileged to be a part of that.
One of my clients, M., came to see me in the beginning of the year and, during her session, we met one of her spirit guides. Her guide showed up as a beautiful white horned horse. Although it was new for M to work with spirit guides (as it was for me not too long ago!), she was open and curious about how her guide could help her, and began doing work with her guide on her own.
M sent me this email several weeks after our session together and I’m copying it here (with her permission) because I share in the excitement of connecting to ourselves and to our guidance and experiencing cool synchronicity! For me, working with energy healers has been a beautiful way to connect with the resources of support and encouragement that are all around me. Those resources show up as friends, family, god/higher power, spiritual guides, nature, and more. I so deeply value helping connect others to these resources, reminding people that they are supported and encouraged in this walk.
“Hey, Liz :)
I hope you're doing well! I've been thinking about you and your advice to trust my spirit guides, and holy crap, something crazy just happened--good crazy. I thought you might enjoy this little anecdote.
I've had an idea for a children's book over the last couple of years. I fleshed it out a bit a while back and then put it away, thinking it probably wouldn't pan out.
A few days ago, I laid in bed and asked the white horned horse we saw at my last visit to talk with me, show himself, or anything he wanted. After a couple of minutes, and out of absolutely no where, my book idea popped into my head with a certain urgency. I hadn't seriously thought about it since last year, and here it was.
So, I played with it and dug a little deeper a couple of weeks ago, but lost confidence in it. So, I put it away again.
Today, I walked past a bookshelf at my office I see every single day. The same books are in the same spots, except one that caught my eye, so I picked it up.
Low and behold, it was a freaking children's book titled "What Do You Do With An Idea?"
I laughed so hard in amazement ("What the whaaat?!"). Lady, you do wonderful, brilliant work. Thank you so much for what you do and for opening me up to the spirit world, because it's super cool.
Your own team of badass spirit guides -- whatever shape they take -- are here to support you, to hold you, to encourage you, to motivate you. And sometimes to keep badgering you to do something until you listen! It's my experience that we can meet these amazing beings in meditations, on hikes, during sessions with energy workers, and in other ways. However you encounter them, they are here for you to lean on. And I feel very blessed to share in this discovery process with the people I work with.
