A SHORT STORY ABOUT ME

It wasn’t easy to summarize all my journey into a bunch of paragraphs, but here it is.

UPDATED IN JULY 1ST 2017

My name is Eugenio Lepine.

Since I was young I have always felt attraction at healing, philosophy, arts, Buddhism and zen meditation. As a kid I said I wanted to be a veterinarian. But years afterwards, when I had to choose a career, I ended up with two interesting options: Psychology or Psychiatry. I finally decided to study Psychiatry as I thought it was more developed and had more therapeutic options than Psychology. Being a psychiatrist requires for you to previously become a Doctor, reason why I chose to study Medicine in my then hometown: Mexico City.

The first two years at MedSchool were great, and I was a good student……yet. It was when I left the faculty and actually studied at hospitals when I lost something, or, better explained, I realized I wouldn’t be fulfilled in there, something was missing. So, my expectations and interests started shifting, and I lost passion about Medicine. Specifically I wasn’t attracted at the actual mechanistic focus of allopathic modern medicine. And after 4 years at MedSchool (plus one of student strike) I decided to drop it and start life from zero in a different place, which since 2004 is Barcelona, an incredible city and my actual home.

I still had the inner knowledge that I was going to become a healer, just not in the most orthodox way.

And specially it has to be something that is also missing from allopathic western medical perspective.

So first I had to shift my mechanistic way of reasoning, which took me years to overcome. This was the most difficult part so far, but it was totally worth it. Now I openly acknowledge that there are still forces and frequencies we cannot detect or measure with traditional equipment but that are vital for the existence of beings.

It was when I started studying and practicing Reiki when I realized how much potential we have in ourselves, and anyone can develop it. Anyone. It really works out for me and my patients. It is really amazing and empowering to understand how oneself has the ability to heal the self and others.

Besides my spirituality lies another aspect that I cannot evade. I just happen to love science. And read and research about all those scientists making holistic theories of reality. Ones which include the forces and frequencies embedded in our systems. This is a great time to be alive; insightful discoveries about consciousness, reality and energy therapies are on the rise. Quantum events and other theories (the biofield, the living matrix, the collective unconscious) just state that we barely know anything of how everything works. Even matter itself is only 4% of the Universe, the rest of it we can’t even measure or identify.

Knowing this -the fact that we barely know anything-, we can resolve that there is so much to discover yet, about reality, about ourselves, and at the same time there are so many possibilities awaiting to be unveiled.

It was may 2016 when I decided to quit my job and start working on a project I could find attractive. I was working for the latter years as a nurse assistant and also as a healthcare provider for elder people, but I had burnout, mainly because I was being underpayed, and my boss was a jerk. So I just needed to find the courage to quit. A week after, inspiration knocked my door and the idea of the blog was born.

I had absolutely no idea how much knowledge I had to cover in order for my blog to be well ranked, understandable and user friendly; I naively thought that I just needed to focus on quality content. Since then I have learned so much about SEO, wordpress, security (website got hacked in january and it was a nightmare but learned many things), image optimization, finding royalty free quality images, managing a bilingual website, and so on and so forth.

Now, one year after starting this project, I can see how much worth it was. The unemployment benefits I was granted have already finished some months ago, so I found a job at a call center to keep me floating meanwhile working at the blog. I am lucky because I found a place of work full of nice people, and the circumstances allow me to continue writing and researching for quality content for my posts. I will keep putting it all into it.

And here I am, proudly presenting a blog whose sources will be mainly scientific publications about alternative medicine and energy healing, with a special focus on Reiki. There is a category about Reiki in Hospitals around the world which is -by far- my most liked section.

Thanks for your visit.

PS. Since the website got hacked I banned any comments (as this was the most probable way it happened: introducing code into the comments section) from the blog itself, so if you would like to introduce any feedback please comment either on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.
