Reiki Surprises

Article by Justine Melton

After learning Reiki many people report their lives changing in magical ways. A lot of people notice things like synchronicity occurring in their lives and that The Universe is better able to communicate with them. Colors may appear brighter, animals may be attracted to you like never before, and you may have a new sensitivity to what kind of food and drinks you put into your body. You may also have sudden dramatic changes in what type of people you choose to keep company with. These Reiki surprises can be exciting and may leave you in awe of Life Force Energy.

Reiki opened up my awareness level and allowed me to notice The Universe trying to communicate with me in small ways. Once I accepted and allowed this into my life more and more signs started showing up. One of the biggest things that I noticed after learning Reiki was that The Universe communicated with me often times through numbers and animals. For instance I would see number 111 or 222 everywhere! Another example, would be suddenly seeing 5 hawks over a period of a few minutes while driving home from my daughter’s school. I would then notice them on a t.v. commercial, on a card from a friend, in an email, as a statue at the store, etc. Here, I will share with you some common numbers and animals that you may soon notice are appearing out of nowhere as signs for you as well.

Woodpecker: Pay attention to opportunities, get busy

If you notice a certain number or animal suddenly appearing for you try and pay attention to what your thoughts were at that time. They may hold a clue as to what it means to you. You can also google whatever it is you are being shown and see what speaks out to you. Some animals/numbers may have different meanings for different people. Go with whatever feels right for you and enjoy this wonderful surprise that often accompanies learning Reiki. Be sure to give thanks as this allows more signs to come in!

Wishing you all love and light.

    Hi Presha.

    Yes everything can have a spiritual meaning attached. Google parrots and see if something comes up that you feel may be a message for you. Best of luck. 🙂
