Article by Tammy Hatherill, Reiki Master
Only this month I received a phone call from an extremely distressed woman. She was desperate for me to help her, although she wasn’t sure if it was a Tarot reading or a Reiki treatment that was required. I gently asked her what was happening in life. Her story made me extremely angry!! Ultimately it was Reiki that would help. Here is her story.
A few years ago “Sharon” was in a very vulnerable state and required direction, so she went for a tarot reading for guidance, and came away believing she was cursed! This ‘Tarot Reader’ filled my client with so much fear and terror, that for years she believed a curse was on her because she was told in GREAT detail that her young son would die at a certain age, and exactly how he would die. The Tarot Reader also told Sharon, that she was at risk of being murdered or at least an attempt would be made on her life. To add to this provocation of dread and trepidation, Sharon was told explicitly she was not allowed to tell anyone else about this curse or what was said during the reading. Sharon was also informed the curse could not be lifted and any attempt to do so would only make it stronger and more dangerous.
Yes, I understand that most people exposed to threats like this would get up and walk out (and I STRONGLY encourage you to do so IF you are ever exposed to fear in any form), however please remember that ‘generally’ when someone comes to a tarot reader they have current issues, and unfortunately for Sharon she was extremely vulnerable and extremely susceptible to the fear based on information provided.
Sharon has never told a soul, before me. This has been a daily trauma for her as she wakes up stressing about her child and her life. She goes to bed stressing about it. She has become a hermit and locked within her own home, because of fear of becoming hurt or killed. She is trapped within her life because she can’t talk to anyone. It’s built to a point that she could no longer function and so out of sheer desperation and nowhere else to turn. She phoned me. I thank ‘God’ she did.
On a beautiful Friday night, Sharon attended my Reiki Practice, and I could feel and sense her shock. Her energy was heavy and she had very little resistance to the ebbs and flows of life. It really felt like her life-force was completely depleted and I don’t know how she was functioning. It was seeping out from the holes, rips and tears in her auric field. All caused from continuous tension. For years she’s had no relief. Most of her waking moments are filled with the scenes painted by the supposed Tarot Reader, and even sleep (when it came) didn’t ease it because of the dreams. Sharon was in a total state of trauma and distress.
Sharon received a powerful Crystal Reiki treatment. She received the beautiful loving energy of Reiki and of course crystals which have healing properties of their own. She was given a double dose of love and light. I worked with the Reiki energy and although I can’t direct it, I intuitively feel it went to the auric tears and rips and sewed them together with beautiful coloured stiches. I know during the treatment I was surrounded by an ENORMOUS angelic presence and other spiritual guides. Sharon was encased and surrounded by many spiritual helpers. This treatment is one of, if not the most powerful one I have ever been blessed to participate in.
I wrapped her in a blanket of Reiki Energy and used so many of the Reiki Symbols, most importantly the Master symbol, as well as relevant Non-Traditional symbols such as the following:
I also did a lot of cord cutting. Cutting the strings and hooks and energy that kept Sharon ‘attached’ to that horrendous Tarot Reading experience and the information given to her. Plus I also sent Reiki Energy back through time and space to help heal the situation from the moment it occurred.
Considering Reiki can do no harm, I explained to Sharon that this treatment would not cause any ill effects and would only help and assist. It certainly wouldn’t make any supposed curse, stronger. I also passed along the fact this ‘Tarot’ Reader was not genuine and that Sharon was safe to release her fears. Sharon was safe to talk to her husband about the information or talk to anyone about the horrendous reading all those years ago. Sharon had been manipulated into keeping silent which is a tactic many abusers use. This is the information I received whilst conducting the Reiki Treatment: the tarot reader was not a genuine psychic and was intent on making money and controlling people through fear.
After the treatment Sharon felt lighter although admitted she still had concerns and fear, although she felt much calmer, more relaxed and more able to see things clearly. She’s embarrassed that this encounter has impacted her so greatly. I am aware that Sharon will need more than one treatment, however with all clients; I don’t push more appointments on them. I told Sharon to monitor how she feels and her body would tell her if she needs another treatment. Sharon is aware that she is more than welcome to come back at any time for another session, to help lift another layer of trauma off her shoulders.
I want to encourage anyone and everyone that if you are ever exposed to information such as what Sharon has been, to please get up, walk away and don’t pay. Genuine and caring psychics will not provoke fear. If they can see something disturbing, there are ways to say it positively and without creating stress. If you have been exposed to something like this, then I encourage you to find a reputable Reiki Master to help you to overcome the ‘psychic attack’.
Wishing everyone love and light and thank you for reading this article. I hope it has helped your understanding a little more on what Reiki can help and assist with. Reiki is such a beautiful modality.
Love, light and harmony.
