Perhaps you already know all about yoga and Reiki. But have you ever heard of the combining the two for the power duo, Reiki Yoga?
Most times when we are tackling life setbacks, whether it’s our career or personal life, we only focus on the physical, emotional, or mental level.
Incorporating Reiki and yoga in my approach to life and decision making strategies has not only drastically improved my life on the physical, emotional and mental level, but most importantly, it made all the difference on the energetic level as well.
Let’s start from the beginning.
Throughout my 20s, I struggled with anxiety and depression. Life was an emotional roller coaster ride and looking back, life sure was “colorful.”
In 2013, I hit rock bottom again. Who says life gets better in your 30s? No way!
Sure, I was living a jet setter lifestyle where work paid for my living, a marble palace…one unit below the penthouse on a hotel. I had a personal driver and maid. All paid for.
The perks were endless when it came to living overseas. Many times, I even stayed at 5 start hotel penthouses of countries I traveled to.
Did you know there are 7 star hotels out there? I digress.
Sounds like a nice life right?
I was miserable.
I cried myself to sleep countless nights. Then I’d wake up after 2 hours of sleep to go into work with a smile on my face and continued on late into the evenings attending diplomatic functions. Sometimes, I forgot which country I was in…and eventually, I lost sight of who I was too.
My job just didn’t resonate with me any more. It wasn’t just the work itself, there was the boss, the colleagues, the list goes on. I just hated everything about that “glamorous” career.
After 7 years I knew it was time to move on, but to what? Do I continue going through the motions, getting praise and promoted for what felt meaningless?
I felt suffocated. “Suffocated” is probably an understatement but there are no other words to describe how miserable I felt.
That was my professional life. I was even more miserable in my personal life. During the mist of my “one-third” life crisis, I ended a relationship with a guy that I thought I was going to marry. That probably hurt way more than ending my work contract a year early to return back to the US.
Despite the fact that my personal and professional life was falling apart, I still managed to manifest milestone breakthroughs.
Within 24 hours of landing in the US, I bought my first condo and car. Just like that.
Landed at the airport, checked in to my hotel, walked across the street to the realtor’s office, got in her car, checked out the condo and within 20 minutes, I put down a solid offer. The next morning, I went to the dealership and bought my Prius after a 15 minute test drive.
Almost 3 years later, still no buyers remorse. In fact, within a month of landing back in the US that day, I met Mr. Right. Still no buyer’s remorse on that one too!
So what’s my secret to tackling life setbacks?
This is where Reiki and yoga come into play in my life. I was able to operate with so much clarity and tune into my intuition despite all the chaos and setbacks around me.
Life was in shambles but that didn’t mean I had to stay at rock bottom for long. It was just clearing out the old so I could establish a more solid foundation.
By incorporating Reiki and yoga in my lifestyle, I sharpened my intuitive skills to the point where I could make such milestone decisions with speed, confidence and clarity.
The practice of Reiki and yoga go hand in hand as yoga increases the flow of Reiki energy in a person’s life. Where yoga may help us understand Reiki in a much deeper way, Reiki may help us understand the deeper energies of yoga.
What is reiki yoga?
Reiki Yoga is a practice based on the principle of activating your body’s natural healing process of the chakras to restore physical and emotional well-being. The technique is a combination of two ancient traditions, restorative Hatha yoga and Reiki, to bring about physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.
Reiki yoga brings together gentle yoga postures with Reiki treatments offered by Reiki masters that use the imposition of their hands to support and boost the natural healing processes in the body. This combination supports the flow of the Prana, or Life Force, through removing blockages and imbalances.
