My First Week As A Reiki Therapist in Sandbach

And what a week it's been!

It was this time last week that my family joined me to officially launch my new business, Mintaka Reiki in Sandbach. I was excited and delighted that everything I needed to do to launch my business had come together so smoothly, and so quickly.

But I’ll admit I was nervous too – I know without question how beneficial the soothing touch of Reiki can be, and the healing it promotes, but would I be able to get that message across to a wider audience?

Well, here we are, one week in, and it looks like my fears were completely ungrounded. Over the next three weeks, I’ve got bookings from people I don’t know, as opposed to friends and family booking in to support me. I'm also going to see a lady to give her Reiki In Her Own Home, and I’ve even had a couple of repeat bookings from people who visited The Cabin this week.

So, I’m feeling a lot more chilled about everything now. And as a fellow Reiki Therapist reminded me on my Facebook page: “Just learn to trust it will all be OK, and it always is.”

I think, like many people, I like to be in control of everything. Just like you, I have goals and ambitions and I work really hard to try and attain them. But I’ll admit I don’t always achieve what I set out to do. Thanks to Reiki though, I’m getting better at accepting that.

Because the way I see it, none of us can ever in be control of anything really – for a million reasons, life can change in an instant, and we have absolutely no control over that. So why waste precious time and energy worrying about what might happen, or whether I’ll achieve my self-imposed goals?

I’m often reminded of one of the five main pillars of Reiki, which says: Just For Today…do not worry.

I know it’s easier said than done, but just like every practice, it gets easier the more you do it. If it happens, it happens. And if it doesn’t, then I truly believe that’s because something even better is waiting just around the corner.

So, I wonder how this next week will go? I’ve started posting my Mintaka Reiki in Sandbach business flyers through letterboxes, and it’ll be really interesting to see if they prompt more visits to the website and subsequent bookings.

But if I promise not to worry if I don’t get the response I’m hoping for, how about you make a promise to yourself to try not to worry about events in your life, over which you have no control.

Just for today…do not worry.

I’ll report back soon.

Much love,
