Without a doubt, my greatest inspiration and spiritual growth, comes from the time I spend sharing my work with the HIV community.
Each Tuesday, I offer Reiki, Foot Reflexology and Aromatherapy to a non-denominational spiritual ministry organization, that freely supplies a variety of holistic services to those in the community who are infected and affected with the HIV virus.
It is here through touching – that the giver and receiver are equally blessed.
Because it is here…that a “sacred connection” is made.
On a physical level, the modalities that I practice – offer gentle, yet powerful support to the body’s natural immunity.
However more importantly, on a spiritual level, they touch deeply upon the clients’ soul.
Because my work is based within the foundation of Reiki, it places me in a position of remaining neutral. Meaning, that whatever “connection” an individual has to their spiritual support – will be present within that session.
My only intention is to remain open, so that the “connection” will be experienced.
So often with HIV, the emotional stress can take a massive toll on the physical. That’s why it is very important for those both infected and affected, to have this “sacred space” with their spirit. It seems to be the “space” where they receive physical and spiritual unity.
I quite often hear, that during a session, a client feels the powerful hands of something far greater than themselves…holding and loving them.
I too…feel the same thing.
Which leads me to believe, that healing goes far beyond the physical body…touching something that only the “spirit” can truly know.
Thank you all…for touching me.
This post is dedicated to all those at Siloam Ministries…who make this “connection” possible.
*In upcoming posts, I will be sharing the “specifics” on how these modalities assist with HIV.
