Gratitude

Gratitude is the soul of the word “thank you” *

Gratitude is a feeling that fills the heart and makes life more radiant, more vibrant.

Today is a special night: May’s full moon offers us an eclipse… I take advantage of this special energy to express my gratitude to the different people who have accompanied me or accompany me currently in this new life after almost 5 years of activity (non-exhaustive list without hierarchy between the persons mentioned!):

  • myself: I have had the courage to completely make a change and undertake this “hero’s journey” listening to my soul. I gave myself this great gift that Reiki  is (as well as the other disciplines that I practice) and thus I’m able to spread around me today Reiki, love, compassion and gratitude in order to contribute to transform the world into a better place where one is happy to live without hiding one’s deep nature;
  • Thierry, my companion and lover: if you do not always share my vision of the world and of the energetic, you are always present by my side, without judgment, and support me with kindness, softness and love; you are a precious teacher to me and make me progress smoothly on my path of realization; thank you for having lead me to this new office  where I feel so good;
  • my blood family: you are not always in tune with who I am and, at the same time, you do your best to adjust to this being that sometimes seems very foreign to you!
  • my soul family: we meet as we progress spiritually; you come in and out of my life for coming back in one way or anothe. This connection is such a great help. A special thought for my Soulmate Roger, who I met in Egypt in 2017 and who left this earthly plan in 2019 before we had time to meet again and to set up our projects to co-animate workshops together;
  • the different writers and teachers who gave me so much material to integrate: Reiki, akashic memories, aura reading, oracle and tarot reading, bioanalogy, chromobiology, energy medicine, NLP, karmic release, Gene Keys to name a few…
  • Regine: when I settled in, you helped me to transform a dark room into a nice bright and welcoming office; we also share many discussions on neuroscience and many other topics; a friendship has gradually developed and we enjoy hiking together on paths that are sometimes a bit chaotic;
  • Pascale: your gentleness, your generosity and your kindness are precious; Gabrielle, whom you have offered me among other testimonies of friendship, always watches with love over my cabinet; our meetings and exchanges are always delightful!
  • Annabelle: thanks to you and to your support, I found my first office and  everything started so quickly;
  • Dany: you have painted with great attention and enthusiasm the Tree of Life’trunk that is a major element of my office;
  • Anne-Marie: you created and offered me a beautiful pottery to celebrate my activity’s beginnings;
  • Marie-Paule: you have composed a beautiful frame with a woman holding the Gassho position, that is so central in the practice of Reiki;
  • Nadege: your two canvases illuminate my cabinet with their beautiful vibrations;
  • Eliane and Philippe: we shared our first care space and I started my practice with you; our exchanges were valuable for my personal learning;
  • Nathalie: we met during a training course and you later taught me how to look at situations with the eyes of the caregiver and of the care recipent, before I offered Reiki volunteering at the hospital;
  • Each and every one of you who came to the inauguration of my current office and brought your joyous hubbub;
  • each person and each situation encountered during my personal and professional lives that allowed me, sometimes after a certain time, to see the magic of life and its teachings unfolding;
  • to each and every client and student who comes to me and makes possible the accomplishment of my mission of life.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

“You may believe that you are responsible for what you do, but not for what you think. The truth is that you are responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can exercise choice. What you do comes from what you think. ”

Julien – 12 years old

Julien is angry at his father. Clashes occur between the members of the family during the meals. Very often, both brothers line up against their parents and the atmosphere degenerates.

Julien’s father had come to my practice a few weeks earlier because he felt very stressed by his job. He had noticed the benefits Reiki had brought to his cousin after her burn-out. After 5 sessions, she had found back her joy of living. Julien’s father had immediately felt calmed after his first session. He thus suggested Julien trying the Reiki experience.

During our talk, Julien tells me his aggressiveness comes eventually from situations lived at school. His father is just a scapegoat… I teach him the ” technique of the tiger ” to help him channeling his anger, express it, without being submerged by its energy. Then, I give Julien one Reiki care hour. Julien is relieved, he is quiet and smiling.

Later on, Julien’s mother will tell me that harmony is back within the family.

This is the end of «My Reiki experience with children” article. I have received other children on Reiki sessions, with similar circumstances or disorder.

I noticed young children and teenagers are very receptive to Reiki energy. They need few sessions to find the way back to enjoyment and reassurance.

I am full of gratitude for the Reiki and its ability to transform one’s life.

I am full of gratitude for the trust these parents and children grant me.

I am full of gratitude to be fortunate enough to support these children towards the liberation of their tensions. Children are the ones who build the future of our world.

If you have seen some aspects of your life improving after one or more Reiki sessions I have given you, you can testify on this site. Your testimonials will undoubtly help hesitating people to take the path of a greater well-being… Thank you.

Paul – 14 years old

This is the year of the fifth grade exam for Paul.  Paul has difficulties feeling confident: he suffers from dyslexic disorders. Although the school board grants him a longer time during the examination, the young man remains very worried, particularly regarding the French written session.

And for a good reason! Reading a one-page text means real difficulties for Paul as letters get blurry. He cannot understand neither the words, neither the meaning of the sentences he sees. He needs a lot of time and method to read the questions and fails understanding the instructions: thus his answers are often irrelevant, not due to the lack of concentration but due to the lack of time.

Reading is suffering. It is a really difficult and disheartening exercise. Furthermore, he has to face other people’s opinion and judgments. Nevertheless, at the oral, Paul does not face these difficulties and he rather is alert.

Full of courage, Paul is hoping to obtain his diploma to be able to build up the life he wishes and to show that he is capable of success.

Paul came to two Reiki sessions. During our second appointment, I also guided him to visualize the success of his oral presenting his company internship report… These two sessions were beneficial for Paul: they calmed him and restored his self-confidence.

Paul passed successfully both the written and oral French tests. His head teacher was rather surprised Paul got his diploma.

Paul was very proud he had been able to prove that he was capable of succeeding in spite of unfavorable forecasts. He could gladly take the path that suited in his aspiration!

Jeanne – 10 years old

Jeanne’s parents live apart. Jeanne lives with her mother and younger brother. This one loves to be the center of attention. Jeanne is really angry with this invading little brother: he breaks her toys, he always wants her to play with him and foremost he does not respect her need for loneliness…

After this first session of Reiki, Jeanne feels totally relaxed, cheerful and joyful again, like a child.

I see Jeanne again 6 weeks later for a second session. I ask her: “Is it your mom who suggested you come to see me again or did you ask her? His answer was unequivocal: “Oh, it’s me! It has made me so well last time, I was zen! …
