I was initially interested in Reiki to offer healing to my paternal grandmother who suffered many physical ailments throughout her life. The first time I visited her, after getting trained in Reiki I, I offered healing energy for her feet. I gave her a lot of Reiki, and once I was trained in level II Reiki, I was able to send it to her long distance (which was good b/c we lived in 2 different countries). Over the years it became easier for her to walk. She lived to be 96 years old. One of my favorite memories of our time together was when we went for walks. She would always find dimes, nickels, and quarters on the streets. She couldn't bend over to pick them up, but would point them out for me to pick up. One time we were walking through a park, lost in conversation when all of a sudden we noticed several men (in uniforms) running toward us.... to our surprise, we were walking through a football field, and to our greater surprise, we were walking through the middle of a football game! I still laugh today as I remember us "rushing" across that field. I put the word rushing in quotes because my grandmother was on crutches since she was a young adult and was not one to rush when on her feet. She was always grateful though, for that Reiki energy that gave her relief and allowed her many years of continued walking.
When I was a level 2 practitioner I offered long distance healing with a friend who was also level 2 Reiki. We sat together in my living room with the palms of our hands facing each other and sent Reiki to a womon in FL (from MA) who had cancer and was scheduled to have surgery. We sent her Reiki every night for 3 nights in a row. When she went into the hospital to have the surgery, they discovered the cancer was gone. This was a big break through for me! It gave me a new understanding in the healing power of Reiki. Before this experience, I attributed the healing experiences to coincidences, but after this happened, there was no doubt in my mind that Reiki truly does heal.
I later became a Reiki Master and started teaching Reiki. This has been one of my biggest joys! Being able to pass on this healing gift to others so that they can heal themselves and those they love is a true honor. I believe it is our birthright to have the ability to heal ourselves, and to offer this gift to others.
Reiki is an energy healing technique that is gentle and powerful at the same time. The wonderful thing about learning Reiki is that you can give this healing energy to yourself, your friends, your pets, your plants, your family. You can take it a step further and learn the 2nd level of Reiki which allows you to send it long distance to loved ones, to lands, and to larger communities. Second level Reiki also gives you permission to become a Reiki practitioner so that if you desire a way to bring in money through a healing arts modality, you could do this. It's great also for massage therapists, psychotherapists, nurses, mental health workers, gardeners, people who work with animals, and so on; to learn this healing art. Master level Reiki gives you a higher level of healing power and teaches you how to teach Reiki to others.
Reiki II example - (remote Reiki). If you have a loved one who could use some healing, you can send a long distance healing session. For example if a loved one in CA needs healing/support, you can send them healing energy and they will receive it, even without you having to get on a plane and fly out to see them in person.
I've been practicing Reiki since 1998, and have taught Reiki to many people over the years. Reiki is an energy-based healing modality; the energy comes from the universal life force; it doesn't drain you because you're using the energy that exists in the universe that is available to all of us. The point of getting attuned to Reiki, by someone who is attuned (or open) to Reiki, is that you also become opened to be able to channel the healing energy from the universe to you / through you and into someone else. The great thing about Reiki is anyone can do it!! Everyone is capable of it! The other great thing is, you get to receive the healing energy as your channeling it through for someone else, therefore everyone wins!
Imagine water flowing from a river, through a pipe, and into another body of water - this is Reiki - energy flowing from the universe, through you (or me), and into another person.
