Chapter Five: Wisdom from a Baby Elder, pt I
An important exposé on the healing world, CHAPTER FIVE: WISDOM FROM A BABY ELDER, pt I is the first chapter that dives into the story within my story: the deception and manipulation that exists within the New Age universe.
This chapter explores my experience with Reiki, a form of energy healing that I turned to while I was desperately needing to make sense of why terrible things kept happening to me.
But, without realizing it, I ended up becoming addicted to the hits of love and compassion I was getting from the practitioner.
So, when I was told the next steps for my own healing journey were for me to become a healer, too, I bought into the multilevel marketing scheme that is, more often than not, New Age healing.
Originally published at REIKI on February 2, 2021, this chapter has been revisited and revised post publication ban, as I was finally able to tell the story with the correct timeline, and tell the story exactly the way I wanted to: with humour and lightness.
