I bought a massage table. I had just come home from a very successful Reiki shift where the patient and family were singing Reiki praises because they were being helped so much with a reduction in pain and anxiety after a Reiki treatment. So on an impulse, and because I’d received my income tax refund :-), I made the knee jerk decision to buy a table. I spent quite a bit of time (like 30 minutes) reading reviews of the various tables, saw one for under $100, thought to myself “walk away and think about this tomorrow” and as I started to walk away my hand hit the “buy” key. And well, here we are with a new Reiki table one week later. Actually it’s a massage table, but I’m not too sure of the difference. One table labeled as a “Reiki” table had a piece in the back so that the client could sit up; however all the reviews said that part didn’t work. So anyway, here’s my Reiki table.
I put it up the first day, ok attempted to put up. I needed Zenah’s help as I couldn’t, and still can’t, put the darn thing up on my own. Gave both her and her dad a Reiki treatment and then practiced putting it away. Cussing the whole time. I was not exuding what I would call Reiki-calm.
But here we are. I have a table. I have no extra room in my house to keep it up or store it. I have no plan to have a business, and even my car is a two door and I wouldn’t be able to take the table anywhere. Even if I could take the table somewhere I wouldn’t be able to put it up by myself.
So I ask you, was this a reasonable purchase?
I’m going to have to go with “yes”. I had a very strong impulse that day to buy it. I’m going with the “if you build it they will come” scenario in my head. People will come Ray.
Now, I’ll take a step back and wait with great anticipation to see what happens next. One step forward, and not necessarily a step backwards but hold/pause and wait and see.
Isn’t it exciting?
