Hello. This is my first time in one of these groups. I am currently dealing with abuse from 25 years ago. Someone said this could help me. Not really sure how to use it. I apologize if I am doing this wrong. 6 months ago I had a massage reiki session that led to an emotional release and an opening for all my old trauma to reappear. It's been 6 months of agony and pain. This is my first step in trying to help myself.

Hello @Stephanief and welcome to After Silence!!!

You will soon hear from a member of the Newbie Support Team with some helpful information on how to navigate the site.  From what I can see, you're doing wonderfully already! :) 

I'm sorry to learn of what has brought you here and that you have had a bad experience following your Reiki session six months ago.  I've never tried Reiki but was told that it can have powerful effects. 

Excellent job on taking steps to help yourself!!  That's huge - I hope you are proud of yourself.

Again - welcome.  I am here if you have any questions or concerns! 

Best wishes,

- Capulet

Hello @Capulet

I think the reiki was an amazing experience. I'm not sure if I ever would have started this healing journey if it weren't for that session breaking my heart opened.

I highly recommend for anyone that's disconnected from their body.

Trying to turn my pain into a purpose. Thank you for welcoming me. 🙏

Welcome to AS @Stephanief! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm terribly sorry for what you've experienced, though. You didn't deserve any of the trauma you've been through...and none of it was your fault. I don't know a thing about Reiki, but I've heard some good things about it...but also some very tough things, like what you experienced. The healing happens after pain sometimes, after a lot of pain. But you've started on your journey to healing, which is so great! I'm proud of you. :) 

And yes, you're using the site the right way, no worries! I will send you a PM (private message) soon with some helpful links. Welcome again! Take care of yourself. ❤️

Hi Stephanie and Welcome.

I am very sorry for what happened 25 years ago and the struggles it has caused. It was undeserved and very unfair. You have found a community that is filled to the brim with supportive and understanding members. You are not alone.

The best way to get accustomed to the place is to just look around. If you see something you'd like to put input on...do so. When you feel ready to create more posts for yourself, go for it. The main idea is to see that others can relate to you and you1 0to others. It can be a truly healing place to be. 

I wish you the best as you begin to move forward down this path of healing.

Mary
