I often give my self some self healing before I go to sleep at night. I am a light sleeper and often have problems going to sleep. Reiki helps me to relax and let go of the things buzzing around my head. I feel love and peace when I perform Reiki on myself and on others. It is a wonderful therapy that can be used regularly for relaxation. You don't have to be unwell to have a treatment.
When I Received Reiki
When I received Reiki for the first time I felt a lot of feelings being pulled from my heart. I describe this experience as Emotional Release. I felt quite emotional and I let go of a lot of negative feelings, such as regret, resentment and heartbreak. It felt a bit like someone was 'tugging at my heart strings' I really felt like I needed to rest after my first treatment.
People are different. Not everyone experiences Reiki in the same way. Some people don't feel a thing when having Reiki treatment. Many of the people I have treated have found it relaxing and peaceful and have fallen asleep.
Healing My Gran
I gave Reiki to my Gran because she had a problem with her hand, she was having problems with her circulation and stiffness in her fingers. Whilst I was giving Reiki, I was instructed to gently hold the middle finger as the energy needed to work from the middle finger up into the wrist. I later found out that my Gran was suffering from 'Carpole Tunnel Syndrome'. This is caused by the compression of the 'key nerve' in the wrist. The 'median nerve', which runs from the forearm into the hand becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. I also knew without asking that there were problems with her circulation and that she was feeling a tingling sensation in her hand. This was one of the many magical experiences I had when working with Reiki. I was amazed at the help I was receiving when performing Reiki.
