A Note-My Intention in Regards to my Blog, from Cynthia/Reiki in the Prairie LLC
I'm glad you're here. It is my hope that you can find something in my blog that will be of service to you. My intention is to provide that "little bit of help" that many of us are looking for.
I know when I was going through my "Spiritual Awakening" I spent months in "fear" unaware of what was happening to me. I just knew that the things I had been experiencing were not my usual self. It was hard due to if you start asking others that aren't in the spiritual area, you are looked down at and thought of as a "nut!" But realize, everyone will eventually go through this.
There are many books and people out there talking about "Spiritual Awakening". Many books state how "wonderful" this experience is. But this is not true for everyone. Some people will be in "awe," while others may find the experience pretty harsh and intimidating.
When I went through this, I had looked for information that was true and helpful. I was looking for that "little bit of help".
This is the time I went and received my first Reiki session by a local woman. I had never heard of it before, but I had wanted to see if it could help me. But by weeks later, I was slowly pulling out of it. You see, Spiritually awakening as a empath can be quite the challenge. Empaths tend to take on other people's emotions. So if I was around people who also had "fear" in them, I would of picked it up as my own energy and it would of compounded my fear experience. So NOTE to people who are sensitive or wonder if they could be Empaths-Read books and articles that are from truthful, reputable people about being a empath. If you do not do this, you'll be a empathic sponge taking on others' emotions. You will not really know what emotions was yours or someone else! Empaths that are "Unskilled Empaths" may eventually take on so much stress, that they will start to form empathic illnesses. (If you need to be guided what to read, look at my book list on the Home page. There you will find some reputable books/authors to read. Some of those authors are on the internet with communities.)
Since this experience, I became a fully realized Empath (skilled Empath). I had needed to learn about myself inside out (Shadow working). I needed to find every area in my life that needed to be healed. I needed "healthy"-exercise, whole foods, nature, etc. I needed to learn about my sensitivities and honor them! If I hadn't, I would of been taking on people's emotions, like a sponge absorbing water when in water. I would of been most other people and not me. I needed to become ME.
I wrote this blog based on "emotions". Because I am a empath, I automatically feel others' emotions 24 hrs a day. It has been said that empaths tend to be "experts" in the area of emotions/psychology.
I am not a psychologist, but I am very aware of this area. Based on what I feel around me, I felt the need to help others look into themselves and heal what is there. Everyone here on Earth needs at least some "healing" of their inner hurts from life.
I wrote this blog for people who have really no "spiritual experience" under their belts. At times, I still may use language that some of you may not understand. I'm sorry about that.
Many of you may not understand what I'm trying to say or think. Some of you may say, "She's off her rocker!", or "This site is garbage!"
What I talk about in this blog is from my experiences as a Reiki Master,a Empath, and just as a regular person.
It is up to you to find what you feel is "right for you". If this blog is not enjoyable or helpful, then you may not find it of value. It just means, we're at a different energy level. (Earth is a school for people. We all are at different stages of growth on Earth. This shows up in our energy systems-Auric field. You can also tell by how people act in life.)
I provide Reiki sessions, but I feel taking ideas from all forms of healing is of value. Thus, I do not only talk about Reiki. I have used Reiki to help with "Shadow working" on oneself. Reiki energy helps to dissolve the stuck emotions, but it is up to you to finish healing the emotion by feeling it and letting it go with no judgement.
Because I am a Empath, I come from the mental/emotional side of Reiki. But I'm not limited to this area. I, like many Reiki Masters will try my best to help you with all areas.
I also feel, to learn what Reiki is like, one must experience Reiki energy for themselves.
I hope this clears up any misunderstandings about this blog. I also hope you enjoy it.
