At Home Reiki and EFT Tapping for Beginners: Energy Healing Resources To Use During Quarantine
I grew up getting reiki healing and energy healing, and learned at a young age that spiritual energetic work can make a huge difference to your personal wellbeing. Spiritual healing modalities, like reiki and EFT (emotional freedom technique), can be a beautiful support as we deal with quarantine and all of the anxiety, stress and fear around what is happening in the world right now.
I’m a huge energy healing believer – and a huge skeptic!
Because I can feel energy in a way that most people can’t (it goes with being an intuitive), I’ve learned from personal experiences that many “energy healers” and “reiki masters” aren’t actually doing much of anything. There’s a huge difference between a healer who is truly meant to work with other people, and one who is just meant to use the tools for themselves. And I personally feel like a lot of people selling energetic healing or reiki should probably just be using it on themselves and not other people. But when a healer is truly meant to help other people utilizing these tools, they can have an incredible impact on our lives.
A Reiki Master and EFT Teacher That I Really Trust and Believe In
Enter my friend Kelsey Patel. I met Kelsey when my friend Anna Ruth asked me to go to a yoga retreat in Bali with her in early 2018. Kelsey, who is one of Hollywood’s leading wellness and reiki healing experts, was leading our retreat. When I first met Kelsey I saw light radiated off of her. Just watching the way people were drawn to her, I knew that she was special. But given all of my own experiences with “energy healers” I was a bit skeptical she would live up to the reiki and energy healing hype I’d read about her online. I was really just there for the yoga in Bali. Actually, in my mind I was really just there for Bali. The yoga was just a nice little benefit on top. Reiki wasn’t really on my mind.
I remember going to the yoga shala for our first class after we checked in to our retreat. I stepped into the hut and the floor was vibrating. My entire body buzzed. At first I thought it was the spot where they built the shala (I was in Bali after all) but then I realized that energy I was feeling was distinctly reiki energy. I saw Kelsey and asked if she’d done something to the space. “Yes, I just reiki’d the whole shala” she told me. I buzzed with the amazing healing energy the entire class. I knew in that moment that she was the real deal.
A couple of days later I got a strange rash. When it didn’t go away for a few days I finally went to Kelsey and asked if she’d do some reiki on me after class to see if it would help. She ended up doing a combination of reiki and EFT tapping (her other energy healing specialty) with me, and 30 minutes after session my rash was gone.
In the two years since Bali, Kelsey and I have stayed in touch, and she’s sent me distance reiki several times (which I can legit feel from 2,000 miles away, every time). She’s an amazing reiki and EFT teacher also, and I knew that she has a lot of resources out there that can be utilized from home. So I reached out to Kelsey a few days ago and asked her to send over her best at home reiki and EFT tapping resources for beginners so I could share them with you. I wanted you to have some amazing energy healing resources that you can use to support yourself during quarantine.
To be clear – I asked Kelsey to share these resources, and she is not paying me to do this. I am sharing this information because I truly believe these energy tools and resources can help with the stress and anxiety of quarantine, and because I am skeptical of a lot of the information that is out there. But I trust Kelsey, and I know if she’s putting it out there it is the real deal.
