Be kind to yourself. Be gentle with yourself.
I like to say that reiki found me. It found me over and over again until I finally decided to pursue my path as an energy worker.
In 2016 I began my reiki training with Joanna Crespo at New York Open Center. It broke me down and opened me up in ways I never imagined. I got lost along the way, learned big, unexpected things about myself, and shared the most beautiful space with such incredible people. In 2018 I completed my reiki master training with overwhelming love and appreciation. Never have I been filled with so much gratitude for a community, a teacher, those who have helped lead me towards this path, and those who have supported and encouraged me along this journey. It's all part of why I want to share this gift with others.
The importance of being gentle with ourselves is perhaps one of the greatest lessons reiki has taught me. I wish for sessions with my clients to always be a reminder of the importance of being kind to ourselves. And just by showing up, you're already practicing this most important part of self-care. Reiki is a different experience for everyone, but at its core, it's a beautiful way to slow down and take time to care for yourself.
