How to find your palmistry & reiki clients

When I first began to try to find clients I received many mixed messages. Some people said to identify my niche; others said not to worry that my clients would find their way to me; then there was the "law of attraction". On and on it went without results. I am still in the early stages of building a clientele and I am always looking for ways so that people can find me, hence the blog.
For weeks now I have been in the throws of writers block. It is very frustrating not to be able to write about my passion and so I decided that I would look through all the research I compiled and pick something, anything. I found an article about how to write a book in a weekend. Wow, if a person could write a book in a weekend certainly I could write a posting on my blog! One of the suggestions to begin was to write directly to who you believed was your audience. I decided I could use that to who I believed were my clients. The first step was to identify my clients.

Who are your clients?
  1. People that are looking for answers
  2. Other "healers"
  3. Other "diviners"
  4. People who use alternative healing modalities
  5. People who are dragged by their friends/ partners
  6. Artists, musicians, lawyers, nurses, teachers, administrators, bankers, truckers, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, rich people, poor people, famous and destitute.

It donned on me that I had chosen a business that transcends all boundaries. It was the one aspect of palmistry and reiki that inspired me from the very beginning. No matter where I was, whatever the circumstances may be, I could offer my services. I can create a space for healing, comfort and inspiration to every person that requests my help.

In a world that moves at an ever increasing speed we forget to hit the pause button and take the time to listen to our inner voice. We forget how to connect to our own wishes, our dreams, our passions. When I sit with a palm stretched out in front of me there is an electricity as we begin our conversation. Perhaps you have forgotten how your directness is an attribute. Perhaps you are frazzled and need someone to guide you towards a safe harbour. Perhaps you have forgotten to trust yourself and your intuition. As we continue to travel along the lines on your hands your inner self reintegrates with the person who travels out in the world. It is always an adventure and such a privilege to be able to share with people.

My reiki experience has provided me with an ever growing sense of amazement and awe. It more than the feedback from clients from around the world that amazes me. I am always amazed at how I can connect with- for lack of another descriptive word - another persons spirit. I've had the great pleasure of receiving thanks and recognition from clients claiming a sense of well being that they did not have before, to "miraculous" healing. What I realized about reiki is that it is a collaborative endeavour between the client and myself. If you were to break your arm it is not the doctor that heals you, the doctor only provides a space for you to heal yourself.
That is what reiki does; it provides a space for you to heal yourself.

Recently I began to provide reiki in a meditation group with amazing success. I am also extremely curious to figure out what is going on when I connect with the energy, and what is going on for my clients. In the near future I am beginning to work with a scientist that has had great success recording ethereal energy ... but that's another post.
