This week I would like to share a client’s experience of her healing that she so generously shared with me. I would also like to remind you that you do not have to feel dramatic sensations in the giving or receiving of Reiki or Healing Touch session. Often the most subtle healings are the most powerful.
“As she began working on me, my mind did what it always does: spiral out of control! A few minutes into the session, my whole left side began to twitch and spasm, measuring about 6.8 on the Richter scale. While my body seemed to play out a version of War between the Worlds, I tried to focus on the music in the background. In spite of the “war” at hand, I noticed a strange calm and sense of detachment wash over me. My tremors calmed a bit, and after a long while I sensed we were at the end of the session. Jeri took her hands off me, but I could feel her presence at my side. But I was reluctant to “come to”. As I lay there, waiting for my cue from Jeri to get up, I suddenly felt hands on my feet. And this whirling energy started in various places on my body. I peeked my eyes open to see what Jeri was doing and was surprised to see her seated beside the table, nowhere near my body. I really have no context to describe the sensations I felt in my body, as it was all new to me. I wondered if I had been engulfed in another dimension. I felt almost as if I was floating in some vortex of energy. I was on some kind of ride, and just so curious about what was happening. My mind kept saying “you should get up; you’re taking so much time”. But this energy swirling around me seemed to have a life of its own and I was in its grip, for what felt like AGES. It finally settled down and I knew it was time to get off the ride.
….I don’t know exactly what I experienced—only that I floated home. And I felt a noticeable lightness in me for days following my session. And I felt the same lightness in a follow-up session with Jeri. “
