My name is Afifa Saljuki and I will be offering private Reiki Healing and Chakra Aligning sessions at IGNITE! I am looking forward to being a part of this retreat event and holding space for your healing.
“Healing does not mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives.”
From the moment we’re born, the barrage of programming begins. Some of it is vital, but much of it is not. In fact, much of that non-vital programming pours in from traditions, norms, trends, cultures, abuse and trauma, and little by little it strips us of our individuality. We can be invalidated & questioned just for being who we naturally are, innately…as the Universe intended. As human beings, we are hardwired to survive above all else, and a lack of acceptance, especially in our formative years, can feel like a direct threat to that primary directive. So we default to strip away pieces of ourselves that threaten acceptance, devolving into a functioning shell, going through the prescribed motions built upon empty promises of happiness. As a result we can feel frozen, frustrated, and anxious and struggle to find a solution. Every single person experiences this. Your solution starts and ends with you.
If you’re doing anything that doesn’t align with your natural, innate energy and way of being, you will have to find a way to fake it till you make it with energy that is unnatural for you. Nobody should be expected to function that way. What’s the point of living a life that doesn’t resonate?
So we must to do the work. The majority of us. This includes tapping into your own intuition and abilities so that you can connect with the energy around you and dig deep down into those subconscious crevasses filled with discarded fragments of the self, find them, study them, and reintegrate them.
Since the tender age of 7, I knew my life’s purpose would involve helping others heal. As a young girl, I’d observe my grandmother who was a known Healer. I am grateful to share this unique talent with her and use it to help others.
I began my journey with Reiki in 2019, and my passion for it has no measure. Through my own healing journey, I have personally experienced the profound healing that can transpire when you address the mind; conscious and unconscious, the body; internal and external as well as the spirit; heart and soul.
I truly believe that when you heal the spirit first, the body and mind will follow.
