My experience at the Reiki Education & Research Institute (RERI) has been amazing, to say the least. My journey first started when I began to develop anxiety and experience panic attacks to the point where I needed help. I used various herbs and received acupuncture treatments but nothing fully solved my issues. This is when I decided to give Reiki a try so I contacted Bill Coryer to setup a round of five sessions. These sessions were amazing and truly helped me overcome a lot of my anxiety problems. Bill was able to explain what was happening and made me feel comfortable during the entire process. I felt a sense of relief after these five sessions as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
Several months past and slowly my anxiety problems began to resurface. I returned to Bill for another round of five sessions which again proved very beneficial however, it became clear that there was something deeper within me that must be healed. This is when I knew that I had to learn Reiki for myself. I joined the next round of classes at RERI which immediately opened my eyes to the power of Reiki. After only a few classes I felt a sense of being at home and knew that Reiki would become a major part of my life. These classes were perfectly presented and organized by Bill and MeiYin so it was extremely easy to learn and become engaged in Reiki. Over time, I gained the skills necessary to heal my anxiety problems yet this was not the only important piece I learned. Along with the self-healing process came the ability to help others. This aspect provided me with a sense of worth and responsibility that is invaluable to grow as a person.
Overall, I couldn’t say enough about what Bill and MeiYin have done for me over the past couple years. I went from having anxiety and panic attacks to being able to help others with anxiety and more. Reiki helps bring me back to balance when life becomes unsteady and then pushes me to grow as much as I can handle. It will always be a part of my everyday life and I constantly look for new ways to incorporate Reiki into my world. Learning Reiki has certainly been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life so far.
