My first experience of Reiki healing.
This is my first posting. As I sit, gazing at the monitor, I ask myself that why I need to blog about my association and deep involvement with Reiki?
There is quite a lot of information available on Reiki out there. A holistic approach towards the well-being of humans is very old, probably as old as human life on earth. There are so many techniques, therapies and systems of holistic healing. So, why another blog?
What I have gathered over eight years is my perception and understanding of healing at physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels of humans. This is a very personal view of my experiences as a Reiki healer and teacher. I believe that I have gathered some very useful and interesting experience which will help many people.
Where did the journey begin? In May 2000 I had gone to Vadodra in Gujarat for my B.ed exams, with two of my colleagues . I was four months pregnant and one day before the exam I developed a pain in my abdomen. Since I had a bad experience during my first pregnancy with severe appendicitis infection, I was worried. One of my colleagues saw my discomfort while we were struggling with our notes on 'History of Education in India' and offered to do some Reiki for me. It sounded so weird but since the other painful choice was to look for a doctor, I readily agreed. She asked me to lie down and then sat in meditation. I was highly amused and kept watching her in disbelief. I don't know when I dozed off. When I woke up after twenty odd minutes, not only my stomach ache had disappeared, in my head I felt very calm. Curious and intrigued, I wanted to know more about Reiki from her.
Then came the weirdest part, she had some intuition and told me that I am meant to learn Reiki. At that moment I just brushed aside the suggestion and continued with my process of taking the exam.
