A while ago I wrote a piece called, “Is Reiki Legit?.” With all of the new-age-y, “energy” based healing options out there, it’s super easy to get inundated with the hoopla of it all, and wonder what to believe. I’m no stranger to miracles or magick. But as someone who came to understand my own gifts in such an organic way, I struggled for an outside world label to help me understand what I was doing. I was led to Reiki after having some really profound distance healing experiences with my son, (who is now recovered from severe autism).
