I'm sorry if I'm "intruding" on your group here. I am not a Reiki practicioner nor am I a CMT. I am just someone who is looking for help. I am in a depressed state. I have a chronic painful condition. A common associative disorder is depression. I feel lonely, unmotivated, depressed. Unable to drag myself out of this funk. Compound that with a host of negative feelings left over from a previous relationship - anger, resentment, etc. Stir in some long ago feelings of loss from losing someone very close. I believe in holistic approaches, natural healing. I am in counseling. I want to feel better. I just don't know how to get better. I keep reading phrases like "clearing" or "sweeping" or "cleansing", as in emotions. Those phrases seem to resonate with my situation. I feel that I need to be "cleansed" of all this negativity inside me. I just don't know how. Can someone please help? I live in the Atlanta area. Thank you.
