If you read my post about a day in my life, you know that my life is pretty busy right now with three little ones. That was actually a really good day, and luckily I have many of those days where things run pretty smoothly, but there are some days when I feel completely exhausted and stressed out. It's especially hard when Ayla is teething and up for hours during the night. I don't deal well with lack of sleep.
Then came Lisa, who is a Level 3 Reiki master and also happens to be an Epicure Selections consultant. She provided me with products and services to try that have done wonders for my stress level right now.
First, she did a distance Reiki session for Ayla to help ease her teething pain and hopefully help her to sleep better (which means Mommy would sleep better, too!). I wasn't sure how it was going to work, because I'm in BC and she's in Ontario, but apparently Lisa can channel energy to anywhere in the world. I was skeptical about this, but I kept an open mind. I was willing to try anything to get Ayla to sleep! All she needed was a full name, location, and photo.
She checked with me the day of the session before she started to see how Ayla was doing and if I had any updates. I told her that she was teething pretty badly. She had two upper teeth coming in at the same time. I had gone out that day and Tony had to watch her. He struggled all day to get her to nap, and when she finally did fall asleep, the nap was pretty short. She was tired and cranky by the end of the day. Lisa did the session that evening, and promptly contacted me that same night with details about how the session went.
She provided a "reading," not for the future, but the current. She was surprisingly accurate about a lot of things concerning Ayla's personality, people and animals in Ayla's life (she even mentioned her aunt, Melissa, by name), and even touched on issues regarding my own emotional state and my relationships with family members. I don't know Lisa personally. We met on an online forum for parents, but we've never met in person, she there's no way she would know the things that she mentioned.
That night, Ayla slept better than she had in a long time. She only woke once and quickly went back to sleep after nursing. The next day, she took two decent naps, so I was able to get things done around the house and even had time to relax a little. She's been sleeping pretty well since that session last week. I don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but I'll take it!
I was certainly impressed with how Lisa approached the session with care and professionalism. I liked that she checked in with me before and after the session to see how Ayla was doing, and the reading she did was really neat. Because I wasn't actually there to see her do the session, it was proof to me that she actually did do it, and that that she connected with the right person. It was a really fun experience.
As if that wasn't enough, Lisa also sent me a package of Epicure products in the mail. There was a jar of Macaroni & Cheese seasoning for a fast and easy meal, and a tin of Lemon Mango Tea to help me relax and unwind.
I've enjoyed the tea in the afternoon when Ayla's napping, before the boys get home from school. It's quiet for a little while, and I can just sit and sip my tea. So good for the soul.
The Macaroni & Cheese seasoning was perfect for a quick meal. It took the stress out of dinner time for me. I roasted broccoli, tomatoes, and sausage (450F for 13 minutes) to add to the macaroni. It cooked while the macaroni cooked, so the whole meal was ready in 15 minutes flat. Best of all, my family approved!
Cole gave it a so-so rating, only because he didn't like the tomatoes I put it in. He loved the macaroni part, and so did everyone else, even Ayla.
Check out Lisa's Epicure Selections page to explore all the tasty seasonings, teas, and more. They make perfect Christmas gifts for food lovers (and really, who doesn't love food?)
Also visit Lisa's Reiki facebook page to learn more about Reiki. I think a Reiki session would be a fun Christmas gift as well.
