A woman came to me frazzled, disheveled and truly a mess. She was in agony on every possible level; mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
She had gotten to the point where the pain was too much to handle. She needed help. She just couldn’t take it anymore. She wanted a reiki treatment and I happily obliged.
I was delighted she was ready to let go of all the pain she was carrying around. And I was even happier she chose me to help her. She was like one big pain body. The weight of it all was wearing her already thin frame down.
Although she was stressed out and emotionally hurt; the pain began to manifest physically in her shoulders, back and head resulting in sever migraines and upper body pain.
When I touched her, I couldn't believe she was able to function with the heaviness of it all. It felt like she was carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders literally. The energy was throbbing, thick, and heavy. As soon as I started the reiki treatment she immediately started to cry. She cried a deep, guttural, ugly cry. Sometimes you just need a safe space to let it all go.
We didn't talk. I let her cry and continued to give her Reiki. With each touch, I took away her pain. With each touch she surrendered and let it all go. With each touch her face relaxed as the pain diminished. Soon the tears transformed into deep sighs and exhales of relief.
The sighs turned to light snores as she peacefully drifted into a deep sleep. It was clear she hadn't had a good night sleep in a while. She was sleeping so peacefully, I didn’t want to wake her up when I was done.
After the reiki treatment, she literally looked and felt like a new woman. I wish I had taken before and after photos to capture the transformation! She came in to my office, frazzled, struggling and in tremendous pain. She left feeling like a new woman; peaceful, radiant and confident.
She loved the reiki treatment so much; she came back the next day for another treatment. She didn't want the wonderful feeling to disappear! She is now one of my best clients. Reiki helped her heal in ways I couldn’t have imagined if I hadn’t seen it for myself.
