I’ve decided that the theme of season 4 of That’s So Maven is “expectation” or more specifically, releasing expectations. I’m not gonna lie, I go into most episodes with some kind of plan in my mind. I invite guests on with some type of expectation that we focus on a particular topic or area of interest. This season has thrown me for a loop. Many of the guests who have come on have completely dispelled my expectations, in the best way possible. This week’s guest, Kelsey J Patel is no exception.
I originally invited Kelsey onto the show to chat about reiki, EFT and energy healing. While we definitely jump into these topics, the episode kept coming back to me and some struggles that I’ve been having. Without me knowing, Kelsey was helping me tap into my energy and some things I need to work on. I’m forever grateful to her for tuning into this and most importantly, reminding me to tune into myself.
Here are a few things we talked about in today’s episode:
- Kelsey’s upbringing and what led her to Reiki
- Back pain and realizing it’s more than just a physical issue
- The importance of talking about mental health struggles
- The energy of our words and how to reframe them
- What is reiki and why you don’t “do” reiki but “live” reiki
- EFT and opening up your chakras for healing
- Why you aren’t what you do but who you are
- Magik Vibes Box and why she created it
- What advice she would give to her 20 year old self
