Dear Reiki Australia, Thank You
I have spoken to many of you, and been a recipient during healing hour, so I guess its time to lift the veil and introduce myself. My name is Grace, Reiki Australia social media manager, and I want to take a moment to express my gratitude because this community has helped me more than you know.
It was shortly after I returned from my South American journey that borders shut down. So I did what all life forms do best and adapted, learning more digital skills and pushing forward. My mum was the one who informed me about the opportunity (thank you mum). Reiki Australia was looking for a volunteer to help with Instagram, so I threw my hat in the ring, hoping for a chance to practice all I had learnt, and it was the best decision I ever made!
I was contacted by the lovely Amy. A woman with two language degrees, owns her own business, has a wonderful family and is also studying medicine. I did not know this about her on our first interview. Amy was the friendly face who greeted me and guided me, was there for all my questions and was kind and comforting when I made mistakes, it was only later that I found out how inspirational she was! So first I want to thank Amy and express my gratitude, absolute diamond! I was given the chance to start anew, and was introduced to the Reiki Australia community who would change my life.
I was struck by the diversity, determination, and compassion of the team and members. This was no ordinary membership organisation, this was a group of people who wanted a happier and healthier world, who knew how beneficial Reiki could be, and who realised that to create a better place you needed to create a supportive network for those in the community who wanted the same. The more I interacted, the more impressed I became. I watched as many of you bared your hearts, openly divulged your struggles, and fiercely persevered with determination as the rest of the Reiki community cheered you on. You all inspired me to push on through self doubt, and I finally took the dive and started my own business, Social Grace, providing social media services for those who dedicate themselves to helping others.
My next step is finding a Reiki Master and I am looking forward to learning this practice to better my mind, body, and spirit.
I have chosen this photo to represent my journey, whilst not always easy, the views along the way are spectacular!
One last note. In social media management, they often talk of an ideal client. I never expected my ideal client to be my first.
So today, throughout the entire day, I wish to express my gratitude for Reiki Australia.
