Self-Reiki to Mend a Broken Heart

As a psychotherapist and coach I was always searching for “tools” I could hand my clients – meditation, visualization, self-help books and workbooks, soothing music, expressive art- but I never realized that Reiki was another very real self-care tool I could have been passing along to my clients.  In fact, had I known what I know now, I would have received Reiki training years ago to Master Teacher level so that I could teach my clients Reiki Level I.   I believe self-administered Reiki maintains mental health and wellness.

Mending A Broken Heart

Anyone who has had their heart broken (perhaps, more than once??) knows that what is damaged even more than your pride, what is lost even more than your dreams for the future, what is even harder to get over than the ache of loss, is your ability to trust someone again. If you’re anything like me, learning to trust again is scarier and more difficult than climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro (not that I’ve ever tried that, mind you).

Break-up Grief Myth 1 - "I know how you feel."

It felt like my heart was broken, shattered like a figurine suddenly knocked off the shelf. I should have, but I didn’t see it coming. I felt lost and alone. Hopeless and grieving. I felt sad and guilty that my children were hurting so badly and nothing I could do could make it better. I couldn't figure out what to do next. I didn’t know who I was anymore.  Sometimes I'd wake up in a panic in the night, afraid of ... I don't even know what I was afraid of. So when my neighbor said "I know how you feel Terri ..." I almost came apart. HOW on earth could she possibly know how I felt? I didn't even know! And if she did know, how did she survive? I heard the same thing, over and over and over again.... for years!

Continued from episode 6 First thing he asked; how was your last night? I saw Claire walking towards us and started feeling a little fidgety. Claire smiled and said good morning as if nothing happened. I had a sigh of relief and we started our day in the office. I was sipping my coffee and thinking why I am becoming an emotion fool; why can't I behave like a normal guy who can have good time with girls. Text on my mobile took me out of my thoughts and Claire sent a sorry and sad smiley.

Continued from episode 5 ...Feeling strange but double minded, should I kiss or just stop here. But Claire was looking pretty and very attractive at that moment. In those few seconds I have thought about tens of things about me and Becky. Our first kiss after the night out; when me and Becky kissed first time walking on the street holding hand in hand. I can still imagine that fragrance Becky was wearing that day which was enlightening and charming me. It was so satisfying sniffing floral and woody notes from her ears and neck while touching her hairs.

Continued from episode 3 …....me and Claire took a cab to her place. Cab was running along riverside and the whole view was so mesmerizing. I couldn't stop myself and asked the driver to stop the cab. We walked from Tower Bridge to Claire's flat on riverside path. Walking in my own thoughts with a smile on face and breathing fresh air; Claire asked in a flirting manner, “so you are available now”. I couldn't understand, is she telling me or asking me.

Beautiful Pieces of my Broken Heart -episode 2

Continued from episode 1 Started thinking how all this happened in last three months …... Me and Becky missed each other even when we were at work. I use to look on my phone to see if have a romantic text from Becky. But in last three months it wasn't the case. We didn't had much to talk; may be just a quick kiss with how was the day? She was spending more time on face book and I was making myself busy with after work drinks with colleagues or some time with old mates. It was getting bit boring living the same life for long.
