Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta
I am back with my latest article, which is my own case study and I combined two healing techniques and it took me exactly 30 days to resolve the situation.
It is good to be your own worst critique, but it went to an extreme last year after an incident took place. I got no closure and that led to depression, weight gain as well as low self confidence. Nothing I did was good enough. I could never be good enough, intelligent enough or pretty enough. I stopped socialising with people, though my professional life was fantastic, and I was doing much better than I did before, from inside I was empty. I started emotionally eating, crying uncontrollably, and criticizing each and everything I did. Even my breathing was not good enough for me.
I had just taken it for granted then that I was “good for nothing” and everything was a farce. Though I immersed myself more and more in work, learned new healing modalities, the emptiness and the sorrow inside me was still there. Though over a year’s time I was emotionally bit better, but the self criticism never stopped. That’s when consciously I chose to return to EFT. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It’s a method in which we tap different points on our head, forehead, hand, under eyes, temples, underarm and side of palms with our fingers along with affirmations to release dense energies and to bring about shifts in mindset and circumstances.
Though I had learned EFT a long time ago, I was a bit rusted, so I checked YouTube and found a beautiful EFT channel, where I chose the video “Healing Inside Out”. I started practicing it, and the first day was horrible. I fell asleep after one round and woke up with tempers flying rocket high! But I was feeling better. Next few days things got a bit better but the temper issue was not doing good to anyone, not me, nor my family!
Thus a few beautiful members of our Whatsapp group suggested to use Reiki with it, and I was like Dang! Why didn’t I think of it earlier? So started activating the Reiki symbols Sei He Ki and Tusker on my fingertips and all over the EFT points and started tapping every day without fail, it didn’t matter how lazy I felt or even if I did not have the heart to do it, I knew I had to stop out of it consciously.
When I started healing, I could see a lot of images in front of me, some of this life, some of past lives, also there were a lot of images, dreams which I couldn’t comprehend, but my Reiki followers were very helpful and supportive in this whole journey. My end result was I dropped a lot of excess pounds, I was happier, healthier and most important learned to value myself again.
Being a Reiki practitioner doesn’t mean we will not have any problems, it only means we have all the tools to tackle our problems. Loads of love to all, keep loving self and others.
Universal blessings to all
