“Reiki is a different level that we barely have a descriptive language for the experience, but I believe that we should focus on it just as much as we focus on the gym and our beauty,” -Zaina Gohou
In recent years western medicine is gradually being replaced by holistic medicine. Reiki, an energy healing treatment, once widely disregarded, is now one of the most popular and respected healing methods. The 20th-century Japanese technique, originally initiated by Mikao Usui, allows Reiki masters to use their hands as a conduit for life force energy. The master works from the crown to the base of the spine in the auric field to balance the seven main energetic chakras. This now reputable treatment is proven to treat depression, stress, chronic pain, cognition in elders, postoperative pain, and more. Actress, model, Harvard graduate, and sustainability research advocate Zaina Gohou recently had a groundbreaking session with Reiki Level 2 practitioner Camille Zolesi of Ibiza and is now a firm believer in the practice and hopes others will take a chance on it.
Gohou had only received Reiki a few times before being connected with Zolesi in August. The young entrepreneur went into the session with an open mind, though she did not have high expectations given her previous uneventful sessions. Regardless, Gohou has always believed in energy and felt a deeper connection to her practitioner this time around.
“I met Camille at a friend’s outing, and she’s very tuned in with the world, so I connected with her, and then I booked a Reiki session with her the next day,” Gohou explained. “I told her about my life and how acting is my passion and how it’s been so difficult. After the session, I felt sleepy and numb. Then, on my plane to Germany, I met two directors who lived in Berlin, and they gave me their contacts and an agent. Everything just came to me very easily and was not forced. I felt an alignment that came from that session.”
Zolesi, who trained with a Usui lineage, 75-year-old French Reiki Master with 30 years of experience, recently earned her certification and felt that it was the missing piece to her life puzzle. Tapping into the source of light and love has brought much revelation and joy to her and her clients.
“Once we pass that step of self-awakening, we are on the path of light,” Zolesi said. “I have been educating myself spiritually for ten years, willing to learn more and feed my soul with endless possibilities of healing, thriving, and creating. I have worked on deprogramming all preconceived ideas, expectations from society, and modern world neurosis as I could, for myself and others. That’s what I do as a job; I help other women reconnect to their true essence, their life purpose, their confidence, and their inner divine energy.”
Zolesi’s session with Gohou was performed in Villa Alsen in Ibiza, near the Es Vedra magnetic rock, on a full moon night…talk about power. These factors alone can heighten divine transformative experiences.
“I gave it to her as I would give it to anyone,” Zolesi said. “I treat every client the same, with love, patience, compassion, and my goal is for them to feel safe enough to surrender. Zaina focused on receiving, and I focused on giving. It was a beautiful exchange. All I could see in her was the infinite potential of growth and her miraculous beauty as her gift to the world. I could see her soul wasn’t about her ego, but about giving sense to her life mission.”
Gohou is blessed to have felt such relief, alignments, and clarity. Her Reiki session helped her attract the right energy, and now she no longer feels like a candle in the wind trying to accomplish goals, but rather feels achievements will come more naturally. Energy is omnipresent and omnipotent, and since our bodies are made up of it, we are easily susceptible to outside energy. We can become unbalanced, and Reiki can help with blockages to ensure recharges and realignments. Though it is important to remember that healing does not happen overnight, Reiki is the catalyst for healing past, present, and future chapters in life.
