I had my second reiki session with Michelle today. Simply put, she is amazing! I had been chatting with a friend online about my recent attempt to live a more spiritual life and the stress and lack of balance I had been experiencing in recent weeks. She recommended that I try reiki. At that moment, I knew I was getting a sign. I had never seen that word before that day; however, earlier in the day I was looking for a massage therapist and saw the word, which I naturally glanced over at the time. I asked her what it was and she told me. Despite my skepticism, I decided it couldn't hurt to try. I didn't know where to begin my search, so I googled it and it led me to Thumbtack. I posted and Michelle was the first response I received. I instantly felt comfortable chatting with her via Thumbtack, so I scheduled an appointment. I stand at 6'0, 245lbs. I have a shaved head, scars, and visible tattoos. I mention this for a reason. There was very little conversation between Michelle and I before the session began, but it did. She knew I was skeptical, but she made me comfortable, had me take a deep breath, and relax. She said she was a channel, and asked if I would like her to relay the messages she was receiving. I told her that I would. She advised that I may need to yawn, burb, or cry during the session because of the energy shifts. I told her that was fine. We begin. Quiet. I could hear her moving. Suddenly, she spoke. It was like she knew me. The me that my exterior that I described would not portray - the first thing she mentioned was a power struggle. I won't go into detail, but it was dead on. She talked about my insecurities, the fact that I am a big kid at heart and that I need to show that in my professional life. She talked about how she could see that I have a compassionate heart and that it causes me to get walked on. I was in awe. Then, I started to feel the energy shifting. I could feel it, mostly in my brow and my sacral chakras during this session, which is interesting because today, I felt it mostly in my solar plexus and crown chakras. I was no longer a skeptic. After both sessions I felt an overwhelming calm and a sense of balance. I have a third appointment booked next week. If you are looking at this, you are considering Michelle. Do yourself a favor. Stop considering and go see her as soon as possible.
