My Reiki journey started in a time of my life where I got very ill for no reason, I even went to Hospital and they did tests but couldn’t find the cause for my symptoms.  My symptoms were shakes, shivering, high blood pressure, feeling anxious, couldn’t sleep, and tired all the time with severe migraine attacks, basically 24/7.
 
My one friend indicate that a lot of my symptoms were ascension symptoms related.  On this note I asked what ascension symptoms were, she replied that the body is starting to awake to its owns existence and powers.  So, the effects of the vibration of your being which is now changing causes the symptoms.
 
She also invited me to join a group of like-minded people going through the same experiences and symptoms.  It is on this group that I saw the Reiki add and it got my attention.  Also, the administrator of the group Renier Aka Mr. Dragon, hosted the Reiki.  When Renier inquired for the last time about any of the people on the group who wanted to do Reiki, I knew that it was a direct call for me to do the Reiki!!!
 
Thus, my Reiki journey started…… I didn’t read up on it, as I am more of a “go with the flow” or I am more of a “feel” or “own experience” not “pre-meditated” type or person.  I just looooovvveee learning and always ask way too many questions, so if I get an opportunity to go and learn something I would just jump in and do it!!! It was no different from Reiki, although I only thought it would be a once-off thing to aid me in my symptoms and to just feel better.  Also, I thought I will use it in Belly dance classes for healing.
 
Boy oh boy was I wrong!!! From the get-go off, I felt so at home, I have never experienced that feeling before in my life.  As the first day of training started to unfold I had so many “aha” moments and at some stages, I thought to myself for the first time in my life, I can learn of a module that resonates so much with my outlook on life.  It was also the first time in life that I could understand how Jesus healed people.  This to me was a huge revival and I literally started to feel like I was about to get reborn.
 
By the end of the first day, we did the attunement……..this This was such an amazing humbled, emotional, and connected experience!!! I could sense an immediate change in my directions of where Reiki was taking me.  By now I had realized that Reiki took charge and I was following!!!
 
I didn’t know what to expect after the training in the next 21 days, but Sensei Renier did explain to us that this period is taken up by the attunement symptoms (old habits or traumas reserving again) to heal through and to grow from.  I did my meditations without religiously and could sense the benefits from it.  I also started to use hand mudras after a few weeks of doing my meditations.

To say that the attunement symptoms were very difficult to go through is an understatement!!! But it was worth it!!!

I could sense and feel that a new world had just opened to me and for the first time in my life I could begin to understand things on a different level.  Even my upbringing and religious believes were challenged to the extreme.
 
The hands-on Reiki I did on people was just an amazing experience, as one could feel the “energy” flowing every time you would tune into it to start to work.  By now I knew that Reiki was going to take me places I have never dreamt of!!!
 
Of course, when Sensei Renier advertised Reiki Level 2 I had to do it.  Once again, I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I knew I had to continue this journey with Reiki.
 
To say that Level 2 was the next level is an understatement.  We learned about the Reiki symbols (which I also discovered I was seeing in a book I was reading “The Celestine Prophecy” every time I wanted to start reading, before Reiki Level 2) and how the distance Reiki works.
 
The exercises we did after the 2nd attunement were just on a whole different level of “Reiki and hands-on healing”!!! I also experienced the Reiki Level 1 attunement as a huge shift in energy and very powerful almost masculine energy.  The 2nd one Reiki Level 2 attunement was a much more emotional one and more female energy was observed.
 
By this time my attunement symptoms started much earlier, the evening after the attunement.  I was very ill with a runny stomach so much so that I could hardly make the 2nd-day training.  But luckily, I did!!!
 
With Reiki Level 2 done I could sense that the “connectedness to Reiki” came more often as before and stayed longer, even without me focussing to connect. Just by thinking of Reiki instantly evoked that connectedness.  I also began to feel much more connected to everything around me like trees, plants, flowers, people, and animals, basically ALL living things!!!
 
The Reiki Level 2 journey was a lot different than Level 1 with the 21day journal we had to write.  This to my surprise was a very healing process and a lot of things came out just by writing everything down and to reflect on them.  Also, I haven’t written in a very long time, I use to love to write and even considered to study to become a journalist.  But due to all my trauma as a child, I stopped writing at the age of 14 ………and with Reiki Level 2 I was forced for the first time since to write again.  So just by writing again, a lot of healing took part.
 
The documentation we had to finish for Level 2 took a lot of self-searching, self-work and I was also led to face my old demons.  Especially the ones I thought I had overcome!!! Reiki Level 2 was a step up from Reiki Level 1.
 
By now I have tapped into a lot of my spiritual gifts I didn’t even know of.  This was a very exciting yet very scary journey, (still is and continue) as it was radical and new to me and didn’t always sit well with my old teachings (religion, upbringing, believes, and culture upbringing).
 
Reiki 3 had my name written all over it and I could not wait to learn more about this amazing gift from the universe which we all had access to!!!
 
The training was very insightful, and we did a lot of meditations which to me indicated from the get-go that Reiki Level 3 was about a lifestyle, a becoming so intertwined with Reiki that it sits in your DNA and you literally became Reiki!!!
 
The group attunement session was mind-blowing, as one could sense the level of vibration rising as everyone was connected to Reiki at the same time, this was truly very memorable experience.
 
The hands-on healing session after the attunement was just formed another galaxy, to say the least.  After the feedback, it was quite evident that whoever was busy giving Reiki or receiving it, also shared with whoever was in the room at that stage!!!
 
This was also my first time that a patient/client said they felt phantom hands while I was doing the Reiki, and I could sense the energy flowing through me was stronger and more powerful due to the connectedness.
 
Reiki Level 3 brought everything together and into perspective, for the first time in my life I felt close to God and His creation, in a way I always wanted to and dreamt of but could not do!!!
