My best friend was in a slump that I didn’t know how to get her out of. She was going through a bad breakup, a career crisis and dealing with her own body image issues that we can all relate to. Suddenly, I noticed an abrupt change in her. She was radiant, optimistic... hell, she was glowing. Where did this new- found positive energy come from? Reiki. For those of you unfamiliar with reiki, it’s a healing technique where the reiki master can channel energy into and out of the patient by means of touch. Seeing the radical change in my BFF, I decided to visit the Davina Holistic Center and clean out my chakras.
Naglaa, born in Egypt, has been a reiki master for over three years. She greeted me with a warm smile and invited me to sit for an initial consultation. Naglaa explained that much like we have veins flowing blood through our body, we also have meridians which allows the flow of energy through our bodies. Meridians are connected to our chakras – the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through. Reiki helps to release any blockages in those chakras which are causing discomfort, stress, etc. and keeping the energy from ebbing and flowing.
After discussing reiki and pointing out where my main chakras are (Third Eye), she took me into a tranquil room where I laid down on a table. I closed my eyes and relaxed. Naglaa glided her hands over my clothed body, gently touching and hovering over my chakras. I felt warmth emanating from her hands and was deeply relaxed. When the hour session was over, I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and renewed energy; I was ready to take on the world. I felt as though my body’s battery had been recharged. After my session, I realized it’s just as important to take care of your spiritual body as it is your physical one.
