Happy New Year!
Yes, it's been quite a while since I've popped my lil head up. I have, as many of you have, found the last two years incredibly time-consuming. My "day job" was essential, so I was one who trudged along to work every day, mask on, trying to keep some sort of normalcy. There was nothing normal about any of it. And I burned out fast.
I lost my father at the beginning of 2021, and I've got to be honest - it really threw my whole world off-kilter. Only now, not quite 2 years later, am I finding my way back to regaining centeredness and renewing my own Reiki practice. With some distance, it's interesting to me how a single event can annihilate so much of the work you've done. But the roots are still there, and if you give them the time and space they need, they will regrow. I think 2023 is going to be a year of regrowth for me.
I have a new "day job" that lets me work from home. I've enjoyed a new found autonomy as I've settled into the new workflow, and my hope is that it will allow me the space to get back to the things I love: daily Reiki self-care, service to others with Reiki treatments and guidance, and general satisfaction with life and the energies that surround us and compile us.
I think the last couple of years have taught us all to be hesitant to declare a new year "our year," and I fully respect that. But I hope that you are moving closer to feeling like you've got a handle on things, and that it doesn't take January 1 to fall for you to be in your own power, making your life exactly how you want it to be.
Please reach out to me if you find Reiki to be a part of journey. I would be honored to be a part of it.
With love, light and gratitude,
