So you are close to 50, have a FWB that doesn't mind sharing a good bottle of wine and a bed and your biggest problem is going to a Reiki class with her?
First, hit it again.
Second, just go to the damned class. Like you haven't wasted an hour of your life for a woman before?
Third, take a wine appreciation class or something together after your 1 trip to her Reiki.
Problem solved, let the wine and sex flow.

Maybe she just thinks your good for some sexual healing.....
Let's face it, chances are she has been hurt in past relationships. Otherwise she would not be single now right?
So yea, your her healer. Deal with it.

I don't believe Reiki is a big deal, mostly imagination, nothing to be afraid of. Maybe I didn't find the right master yet, but this is my opinion, hope no Reiki practitioner is offended.
A good friend of mine was learning Reiki up into the master level, so I helped her by volunteering for some free sessions. It was an interesting experience, calming and relaxing, but if you ask me about the things I 'saw" it still makes me laugh.
First, I wasted about 5 minutes trying to decide what is my favorite peaceful place for me, a beach or a forest, missing a big part of the instructions. Finally I rushed it with the forest; that was a problem too since a forest scene from Lord of the Rings was keep popping up. Then she said to invite my guiding spirit, so a woman show up with 2 white plastic chairs and spreads a white sheet on the grass, like we're going to have a picnik. After that I kind of doze off, so no special instructions were given to me lol.
She was quite happy with the white color, as an auspicious sign, but I was very disappointed with my imagination; two plastic chairs, that's the best I can get from my spiritual guide? I didn't want to burst her bubble, but my impression is that reiki is nothing more than guided imagery.
After that I didn't bother anymore with 'seeing" things; I just relaxed and listen to the nice background music.
So don't worry if she saw you as her healer, it means nothing. You probably were the strongest image in her mind at the moment. Go with her and enjoy a relaxing experience.edit on 15-10-2013 by WhiteHat because: (no reason given)

She said she was doing the energy transfer too, while gently massaging/touching different parts of my body.
That part was really nice, and almost every time I doze off, which it never happens to me during a normal massage session.
Yet I cannot tell you about any health problem or emotional problem improving after that, nor any other after effect beside a very nice relaxing "massage" session ( I was fully dressed )
Maybe because she was very new, or I was too skeptic , fact is that I miss what all the fuss is about reiki.
This doesn't sound like my experiences with Reiki, but I've only been practicing for a few years. My mom turned me onto Reiki and Shamballah a few years back, but I choose to use both as...well, I look at both as being directed and focused energy work. And I'm more into Shamballah than actual Reiki, per se.

Reiki is a term that is associated with a multitude of psychic energetic healing systems. Dr. Mikeo Usui is credited for bringing this lost art back to the modern world in 1914. Shamballa is a Usui based (using traditional characters/symbols) energetic healing system that expands on Usui Reiki. Many practitioners consider Shamballa to be a more intense and profound energy system. I am a Sekum-Seihem-Reiki Master as well as a Shamballa Master - and many other healing modalities as well. My suggestions for the girlfriend and some of the things she is experiencing during her Reiki practice- make sure your space is clear of any unwanted energies. This can be accomplished by prayer, invoking the protection of Archangel Michael, a crystal grid- there are many ways. The Reiki instructor should be providing this knowledge and methods for her. My advice to the person who ask if he should attend Reiki class... Go! The universe has provided this opportunity to you for a reason. Reiki cannot do harm.... And yes, I am Dustbowl Debutante's mom
