Okay here's my testimonial.
I don't believe in Reiki or energy-healing or any of that "stuff" as much as the people who left bad comments in this thread, I'm just not
unpleasant about it.
But with that being said, shortly after I posted my request, I got an intense ringing in my right ear. I couldn't remember the last time I heard a
ringing in my ears, sometime when I was 10-12 years old I would guess. It even turned into a double ringing. It was annoying for a minute but then
it became pleasant, very pleasant.
I won't go into to much detail here, but I have been diagnosed with Acute PTSD for over two years and it manifests mostly in an inability to enjoy or
like anything. It's like depression "not enjoying things you used to" but more complete and it never subsides. I'm always the most positive
person in the room, but never really happy because of what I can't do. Hope helps, but no amount of hope makes it lift. I'm an artist, and have
not been able to look at my brushes or tools for a really long time.
During that ringing, I started to get pretty excited and happy which is possibly a placebo effect, or not, but possibly. But the one thing I can't
ignore is I could feel myself getting excited about the normal things I haven't been able to think about, and every time I think about doing my art
or anything creative, I get excited about using my brushes and color, the small parts that I can't even think about under all the other stuff. I
even stayed up until 4 am working on some stuff, and I woke up at my usual 8 am, still excited. (if this effect is temporary, I'm going to nicely
hold on to the memory and try and use it to get back into the things I enjoy)
As I said, I came into this as a pleasant skeptic, but something helped, and no amount of hoping has ever made a dent in this. It was small and
subtle, but that little bit of insight and remembering what it was like is worth a million dollars to me. I can't say I believe in this for sure,
not enough info, but I know that I'm glad I tried this it was a touch extraordinary.
So I think thanks are in order from me, thanks Purpleman!
