A friend has recently come into my life and our relationship has developped into a bit of a therapy-like relationship, with her talking and me trying to help. I've started bringing her with me to my Reiki master's dance classes to help open her up and clear her out. I've honestly never met anyone with so heavy a load. I've been attuned to Reiki II, and will be doing the third attunement soon. I'm also going to attend Barbara Brennan's energy school starting in the fall. I am a true beginner to this healing path and have only ever done Reiki on my kids. My Reiki Master suggested that I do Reiki on my friend twice a week.
I have a true desire to help, but I'm not sure if I'm coming up against a confidence issue or something else. I'm just not sure if I'm the right person to help my friend with all her issues. They are tremendous and she talks incessantly about everything - a TON of rage, hurt, betrayal, past addictions, abuse, etc. I know what she needs, but I'm unsure of how to help. I did a bit of Reiki on her today, but she ended up talking for almost all of it, and I just don't think that talking can help her anymore. She's done traditional therapy for 15 years and she knows exactly why she is the way she it. She needs spiritual/energy work. She needs to be cleaned out, pure and simple. She also needs so much help forgiving a ton of people in her life.
Part of me thinks she was put in my path for a reason, but couldn't I have started my healing journey on someone a little simpler? :) Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this situation? I don't want to get in over my head.
