Hello everyone. My name is Sandra and I am not only new to the site but I am also very new to energy work. I have always had a strong energy, of some kind, in my hands but was taught as a child to ignore and not talk about it. A few times over the past 30 years I have felt a type of yearning or pull to investigate and learn but always pushed it aside when others responded negatively. However, a few months ago that pull returned, the energy increased, and I was unable to push down or turn either off. I am ashamed that I have repressed and ignored a God given gift for so many years and am eager to make up for lost time. I am taking a Reiki I class this coming weekend but to be honest I don't feel the master is a good match for me...it just doesn't feel right. I am confused, and a bit discouraged, by this but I am determined not to give up. I am kind of lost and just limping along right now when it comes to where to start and what I need to do. I am more than open to any and all advice on finding and refining my gifts. Deep down I know I have so much to offer but I also know that I have to learn and grow in order to get to that level. Are there any recommended readings that would help me get a firmer grip on the whole energy concept before I try to delve further into any certain type? I feel kind of lost and stuck because I really don't know what to do or where to start.
Many thanks to Chris for this wonderful site. It is a bit intimidating right now but I am sure it will feel like home in no time.
Blessings and thanks to everyone!
