So a few experiences that I have had-- Firstly, pre Reiki I had a coworker who suffers from Fibromyalgia and her desk was located behind mine about
ten feet away. I could literally feel her misery, not that I was experiencing her pain, thankfully, but I could feel the misery coming off of her in
waves. I kept thinking that I wished I could help her. I know this is going to sound like a crock to some, but Reiki really does come to you. I
kept seeing the word. I am an avid reader. I saw the word in one of those smutty romance novels and stored it somewhere in the back of my mind for
further research, which I didn't do. A few days later, I saw the word again and thought, hmmm, there's that word again. Busy, I didn't check it
out. This happened a few times until I spotted an article in the newspaper about it and finally looked into it. It struck me that this was something
I could do to help alleviate my friends discomfort. So I learned how to do it and it really has helped her. No, her Fibro is not gone, but the Reiki
helps her to relax and eases the pain for a bit at a time. I want her to learn so that she can do this for herself
My sister, who is the biggest skeptic on the planet, next to my husband, that is, was having trouble with her achiles tendon, she was walking but very
painfully and was miserably complaining. I offered her Reiki and she gave me this look like "whatever" and kind of rolled her eyes. I just
shrugged. She then asked me what I would have to do, like I was going to dance around her with a bone in my nose or something. I told her that I
would just sit with her foot in my hand for a bit. After a bit of hesitation she agreed. This was during a family get together so we found a spot
where we could still visit with everyone while I held her foot. About 15 minutes or so into the treatment, my brother, who was drunk picked a fight
with his son in law and we went outside to separate them. When we came back inside, she stopped mid stride and said "Oh my God, I am walking. I
have no pain." She was really really surprised (so was I, a little
. However after she left she decided to work on everything that she'd been
putting off because of the pain and reinjured it. She received more Reiki and now swears by it.
Since then I have worked on knees, bee stings, cuts, burns, sinus issues, head, neck and back aches, heartburn. It works amazing for hearburn!
Teething infants, dogs, cats with great success. Reiki is an amazing tool and I think everyone should have at least one person in their family who
knows how to do it. It is not a replacement for medical attention but for minor aches and pains and works well assisting modern medicine in healing.
One thing many do not know, is that Reiki is being used in more and more hospitals all the time. That in itself should give it a little weight.
