Ask me a year ago whether I’d have a fully functioning room dedicated to healing in my house, I probably would have said ‘err no, should I?’ How twelve months has changed me because yes I now have a healing room at my house. I’ve mentioned my room in passing on here a few times but now I feel it’s time to show you around. Let’s start with the back-story.
I developed an interest in holistic healing methods a few years ago when I had my first kinesiology session. I was astounded what emotional blockages were brought to the surface in just one treatment. This session also introduced me to the power of crystal healing. Other healing modalities I have tried include Reiki, sound healing, chakra balancing and energetic healing with sound, colour & essential oils.
My interest in becoming a healer myself was really spurred on after I completed the Advanced Mentoring Program with Elizabeth Peru. My eyes were wide open to working with energy in every day life & how we have the power to heal our bodies without the use of conventional toxic medications. I now devour anything written by Hay House Publishing and the really old spiritual texts to develop my understanding of the power of healing with energy.
In January this year I took a weekend course for Reiki Level I. To be honest I didn’t really know what to expect being on the other side of the table. Everyone heals in different ways and has different gifts of communicating with the source energy. Reiki Level I taught me the hand placement technique for conducting a healing from which I can expand on with practice. I was truly blessed to have such a personal course with just one other student & myself. Our Reiki Master tailored our training to suit our levels of intuition that turned out to be more advanced than any of us realized. The universe brought us all together for a reason.
The only way to progress ones abilities as a healer is to get out there & heal. The experience I gained from hands on practice taught me to trust in my abilities and the messages I receive. With Reiki Level I it is suggested you only practice on people you know until you are comfortable & ready for Level II. That is why my healing room was created. I needed a space to practice in.
The spare room in my house had already been cleared out of the bed that was hardly ever used to make space for my painting easel & art gear. It seemed a logical area to use for healing as well. I bought a massage table that folded out & packed away neatly so I could bring it out when I had someone to work on. I rolled like this for a while. Packing away the table after every session and only bringing it out if I had someone booked in. This got quite tiresome. Yes it’s a ‘portable’ table but the room is not that big, sometimes it feels like a game of twister getting it up and down. Then making it up with the sheets, blankets and pillows. (Yes I went to town dressing my table too, I want my clients to be comfy!) I eventually left the table ‘up’ all the time. That’s when the light bulb went off. This room needed to be dedicated always to healing.
I moved my painting equipment out to the lounge room, as it’s not a good idea to have your healing space smelling of solvents. It all then came together quickly. More furniture was shifted out and lovely new soft furnishings came in. All my metaphysical tools had a place within easy access. My crystals and alchemy oils are all at hand if I quickly need to grab them as directed. I have a friend who makes divine soy candles that make the room smell delicious and softly lit. Recently I invested in an oil diffuser that also changes colour. I’m slowly moving towards working with colours too as well as oils. My latest obsession is relaxation music. How dangerous is iTunes and Amazon, one click & instant mp3. It’s all-good though & helps ‘set the scene.’ My favourite right now is Angelic Reiki.
It really does look & feel like a professional healing space now. My friends who come for Reiki always comment on the lovely energy the room has. Each time I conduct a healing in there the room is infused with even more beautiful energy. I get to enjoy the energy too. I often prepare for a session by meditating laying on the table myself. I do cleanse and clean before and after each session so any negatives are removed. I’m lucky not to have any close neighbours so I don’t have to worry about cleansing too far field either.
Just like magic and in that great movie Field of Dreams, “build it and they will come” they sure did. Once I gave the spare room the identity it deserved and a purpose the ball started rolling. I haven’t had a weekend in over two months without a Reiki client. People are happy to travel out to see me for a session as I firmly set the intention they would come if I desired them too.
This is a beautiful lesson of how to put your dreams into action. If you want something to happen for you, you need to put the wheels in motion & do it for yourself. Don’t sit back & wait for people to do it for you because that might never happen. Follow my lead. I went out and put action to an idea. Now I get to practice healing every week that is such a wonderful reward for everyone.
Do you have a sacred space in your house dedicated to healing, hobbies or just relaxation? Please feel free to share in the comments below.
