I placed my palms on my body and felt them warming up in a way that I had never experienced before.
The warmth transformed into intense heat at times and tingling at other times.
I looked at my hands with a sense of wonder! What had just happened?
Was it magic at work?
Or a miracle?
Or was it something ‘normal’ that felt miraculous because it was new?
I would say it was a bit of all!
November 2007 – A significant time period when I began my Reiki training ; significant because my life since then has been built on this foundation of Reiki practice.
Apart from warm healing hands that bring peace and comfort each day, some other gifts that Reiki brought into my life include-
1. Love and reverence for my physical body and inspiration to take good care of it
2. Deep rest and relaxation
3. Heightened awareness of unhelpful thoughts and mental patterns
4. Ability to let go of or transform aspects of life that weren’t working so new people and opportunities could come in
5. Profound spiritual growth and strength
I am so grateful for all the gifts Reiki practice brings.
To me, Reiki is pure love.
After all these years, I am accustomed to the sensation of my hands warming up. I do miss the ‘wowness’ of how it felt in the beginning!
While that ‘wow’ was like the euphoria brought on by love at first sight, my relationship with Reiki today is like a solid partnership of love that is built with someone over years. And that is so beautiful as well.
