Things are starting to happen super quickly over here at The Grateful Lotus!
Since my last post, I have done my first in-person Reiki healing session, and it went really well. I realized during that session though, that doing Reiki regularly without a proper table was not going to be possible for me, physically. Well, it just so happens that your girl has a birthday coming up, so I told Matt that what I wanted was a healing table. The new table will be here next week, and it is portable!
A few weeks ago, I attended a New Moon circle with Misses Brown from Sacred Star Sisterhood, and it was a lifechanging experience. My spirit guides had been pushing me to reach out to women in my area and get plugged in spiritually here. I put that out there, and was promptly invited to attend this circle.
I had not felt (social) anxiety like that in a very long time. It was uncomfortable at first. But the circle was beautiful and the women were so genuine and kind in spirit. We laughed and cried and we sang and we danced. If you know me, you know that I do not dance. But there I was, dancing. It was beautiful.
The last New Moon was an amazing time to manifest, so that's what I've been doing the past few weeks. I've been manifesting positivity, manifesting happiness, manifesting POWER into this organization and manifesting confidence into myself. I've been speaking my truth, and I've been honoring spirit within me. Soon, I plan to begin manifesting a professional space for me to perform Reiki... but I don't want to do that until I am absolutely ready to take that step.
I have started doing self-healing sessions with my sound bowls. My two main chakras that have needed work lately have been my throat chakra and my root chakra (always the root chakra, it seems). I'm pairing this with meditation and journaling. Once I am confident using the bowls to heal, I will begin using them in my sessions for others.
I also have a healing trade session booked with someone next week! I'm so excited to practice with her, and also learn from her.
I'm excited for this next phase of my journey...while also fearful and apprehensive. "Fear of the unknown" is super common, and I am not excluded. I have so many plans... so many things with The Grateful Lotus that I would like to do and bring to those around me. Getting to the core of my fears is going to be essential to overcoming them. I plan on sharing that journey with you all.
