I am delighted to publish this heartfelt account about discovering Jikiden Reiki Training Courses in Hampshire from a Russian Jikiden Reiki student.
My first experience of healing hands was the hands of my father. It was not reiki, he just has that natural gift , he can take pain away just by laying hands on a person. To my great disappointment this ability was not passed on to me.
Still ….. The simplicity & effectiveness of any holistic treatment makes anyone who experienced it wonder…..How does it work? Where does it come from? What is it??
Over the years of seeking answers, many people crossed my path. Most of these encounters ended up in disappointment. When I heard about reiki (many years ago at the end of the last century ) & did my research, the very idea of being able to learn the “skill” to help people, appeared to be very attractive. Unfortunately most authors came across as genuinely nice people but at the same time completely bonkers (somehow it did not feel right)…… A few years later I had one 40min reiki session by chance, a “tester” as they say. I did not think much of it initially, however, as the reiki continued working on me, I suddenly felt, there it is! The answer I was looking for! I just had to do it!!
My renewed research brought up a huge variety of reiki teachers & schools. All of them very interesting in their own way but it still did not feel right for me. In one of the books I read at the time there was a mention of a Japanese branch of Reiki in England, my fingers were tingling – we are getting so close!! I looked it up – and they had Jikiden Reiki Training Courses in Hampshire where I live. The moment I clicked on their website it became clear – this student had finally found her teachers! Do you know what they say about buses? You wait for ages & then 2 come along at once!.
It was not an easy beginning for me, as all my past disappointments came to haunt me. Thankfully my teachers Debbie Cook and Tim Considine were absolutely wonderful & very patient, experienced teachers. They provided a great deal of support on this journey, to be honest, at the start they had one messed up student in ‘yours truly’. It was only when my mind was finally free of the negativity from the past, that the flow of energy throughout my body lifted my spirit – and then there was no way back.
I fell in love with that beautiful energy. It’s warmth, peace & purity. Fortunately most of my friends absolutely love receiving Jikiden Reiki treatments. They provided me with an array of headaches, stomach aches, squeaky knees, bad shoulders, clicking ears & other excuses to be able to sit (or lay) down quietly and have a wonderful time for themselves, their bodies and ultimately their souls.
Even more luck – Debbie Cook invited her students to help her at the Alresford Show in September where she holds a stall every year and provides free Jikiden Reiki treatments for people who have never tried it before. It’s such a great opportunity to raise the profile of Jikiden Reiki Training Courses available in the Hampshire community.
I just had to be part of it!! We always have so much fun!! Now when I see people’s faces lightening up as their pain subsides, their eyes full of wonder – What just happened? Where did the pain go?
My heart fills with happiness & gratitude. I am grateful to the faith that brought me to this place in my life. Grateful to my teachers Debbie Cook and Tim Considine for sharing this priceless knowledge with me. Grateful to Usui sensei for bringing his teachings into the world. Grateful to Hayashi sensei for developing and promoting Reiki. Grateful to Tadao Yamaguchi sensei & Chiyoko Yamaguchi sensei for faithfully preserving these core teachings for us.
