After a year of dating my boyfriend (now my fiance) I look back at the pictures of our first trip to the beach trip, otherwise known as the test our relationship vacationing skills, to Puerto Rico.
The pictures looked good. I could definitely see my abs and at the time, I fit into my smallest bikini.
I was feeling good…lost baby number 2 weight – I gain 60 lbs each time!
So there we are in this beautiful place. Mimosas for breakfast, coconut drinks and massages on the beach, stargazing and cocktails with dinner.
The food was so fresh and so amazing at our favorite bar that instead of splitting a meal, or getting an appetizer, we got three meals and dessert between the two of us!
BACK TO REALITY
The time came to go home after 5 days and unfortunately when we got home to the dreaded scale, I was 5 pounds heavier!
Walks on the beach, exploring the city of old San Juan, and even hiking up the mountains in mid island didn’t help fully offset our calorie consumption.
So there I am in an amazing relationship, in love, and now I can’t fit into my jeans for the start of the new year.
Good thing Andre’s favorite store is Buckle and we bought new jeans to solve my problem. But another year is almost upon us and I have gained 3 more pounds. This just will not work!!
TAKING MATTERS INTO MY OWN HANDS
I had to do something drastic.
Like stop eating everything, lock myself in a closet, workout everyday, buy a fitbit, breakup with Andre so I could go back to wine and cheese only diet, become a square, stop having fun!!
None of these options worked either.
And then the answer was given to me during my final class Reiki certification class with local Reiki Master Rachel Collier. We were led on a guiding meditation to connect with our guides and the teacher asked for us to be given a message on why were were chosen to do Reiki.
My message was crystal clear…Reiki Weight Loss.
What is Reiki you ask?
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
So how perfect is this?
I get to add another tool to my toolbox and help you even more. Intuitive readings, spiritual consulting, and angel healings were just not enough. Now we get to tackle Reiki weight loss and help that emotional and physical weight fall right off.
So what’s my mission?!!
To lose weight and get to my ideal body style and to look and feel my best inside and out!
But what exactly does that mean and how do you do that?
For the first time in my life I am tapping into what my body wants using Reiki and intuition and finding out what my shape my body is meant to be and then doing the emotional work in my head so I can support that. In a nutshell, to have a healthy body image and wake up grateful everyday for my body.
Luckily I have two very good friends that said yes after my guides picked them to be part of this Reiki weight loss group.
So I brought the girls to my office. It is set up with all my tools. Crystals, candles, Reiki table, couch, a goddess partition, chakra energy cards and all my Reiki and angel healing notes.
We had our kickoff 2 weeks ago, Wednesday – a full hour session for each of them…we took our measurements, weighed ourselves and took pictures, did some Reiki work and a guided meditation to start.
The changes have already started happening! It has already been an emotional roller coaster of goodness!
Stay tuned for our results!
