Hello! I’m elena
“You have to learn to love yourself before you can love someone else. Because it’s only when we love ourselves that we feel worthy of someone else’s love.” ― Alyssa B. Sheinmel
This is a lovely quote to start the story with. It hasn’t been easy for me to love myself and feel worthy of anything beautiful because, for a long time I struggled with the thought and comments of others that my ideas and principles in life are wrong because they are different than the views of my surrounding. It’s not always easy to stand out from the crowd, to have your voice heard and taken seriously.
Being different and having a different opinion from the surrounding is not a sin, nor something to bother your mind at night with. Being different and getting out of the matrix takes a lot of courage. It takes a brave person to change the surrounding, friends, and partners.
THE NEED FOR A CHANGE
Three years ago, l couldn’t imagine starting something like this – a personal blog to share MY findings and MY knowledge on a specific topic. I have always been too harsh on myself and have always doubted my choices. I questioned and overthought things so much that, in the end, l would end up making a mistake because my mind was clustered with negativity.
Negative thoughts lead to negative outcomes. There were times when l would push myself to make a positive change in my life, but oh, how hard it was for me to be sure that l am making the right decision.
Living my life doubting and questioning ‘Am I good enough?’, ‘Am I right?’, ‘Am I this…or am I that..’ has made me so frightened that every decision that l made was with fear and uncertainty…well…except one.
Being unemployed and totally insecure about looking for a job, the job came to me. With a lot of fear and insecurity, I accepted a low-budget job as an English Teacher in a private school for foreign languages in my town. It wasn’t my dream job, but l was happy to have it. ‘This is what l deserve’ I would tell myself.
I was coping with my new job while having a hard time getting out of my toxic relationship. I didn’t dare to take a different path and break up, not get married like it was expected of me. I knew deep down inside me, that there is more in this life for me than being in a relationship, even worse in marriage, with someone who does not share similar ideas and principles of life like me. Then, out of the blue, l heard the word Reiki from my colleague and now my friend; I had no idea what it was, I just knew I want to listen and learn about it.
On April 29, 2018, I completed the Reiki Level I course, and at that time, little did l know that my life is about to undergo a profound transformation. It took time; the change was going slowly but in the right direction. I was little braver than l was before Reiki, I was slightly happier and slightly more confident.
As l was healing myself with the Reiki treatments, many of my friends and family were intrigued by the Reiki teachings and asked me to perform Reiki treatments on them as well. The one thing that kept me going through life in my hard times was just that – Reiki and the healing treatments.
I made some changes in my life, but it took me ten months with Reiki I and a few hard life-lessons to make the right move and get out of the relationship that served me no good.
Right after that, on February 17, 2019, l got initiated with Reiki II. My life after having Reiki II changed a lot – I continued to work with people who needed healing, my clients are now not only my friends and family but new people which l didn’t know before. As time went by, I noticed that my word meant something to people, they considered it with respect, and many friends and acquaintances rely on me now.
On a professional level, I quit the job at the school and decided to enroll in an HR-Management Academy. I started this, my personal Reiki blog, and completed a few courses in Digital Marketing to expand my knowledge. From now on, I genuinely believe that the doors of opportunities will continue to open for me. Only the sky is my limit now.
On a personal level, I am way happier, more fulfilled, and with a lot of life lessons learned, my family and friends are happier too. Also, l have found my soulmate, the most extraordinary person, who supports every decision l make, helps me build into a strong, independent person, and loves me to the moon and back. We grow together, and we radiate positivity wherever we go.
I am Elena, and l am warmly welcoming you on my personal Reiki blog. I am inviting you to go through the Reiki journey of positive changes together by reading trustworthy content, by sharing experiences in Reiki and by explaining the laws of the universe.
Every one of us has a unique story to tell and a path to go, but at the end of the day, each of us should be a little star on a black sky with one purpose – to make the sky brighter.
With all my heart l am very honored and pleased to show you the beautiful and soft side of Reiki, for Reiki is the best thing that can happen in your life even if you are not aware of it.
