My personal experience with Reiki during my first few sessions!
A Truly Emotional Experience of Healing
I personally came to a truly emotional place in my life for energy healing when I became sick and didn't know where else to turn. I turned to a Reiki healer and my life has never been the same since. That's where my journey of healing began. I was truly touched by an angel. Everyone's mind and physical body needs something different, so no two Reiki sessions are the same for any two people. It's for this reason that it's hard to say what Reiki feels like. I know that some people feel the warmth of the energy throughout their body, while others feel the tingling vibration of the energy. Some people go into a meditative sleep state, while others feel absolutely nothing but relaxed. I can't tell you what you will feel, but I will tell you the story of my first Reiki session.
My first session with my healer, was during a time of need for emotional healing. I had recently lost my cousin, who was like a sister to me, to breast cancer. In the end stages of her illness, she had migrated to alternative medicine for healing while doing chemo, which helped sooth her pain during that time. She did eventually lose her battle and was only 40 years old at the time. This was devastating to the whole family. Shortly after, I was battling with my own form of cancer and found no relief through the medical community. This alternative medicine intrigued me and so I read as much information I could about it. I knew I had to do something different so I found my healer and after a few sessions I realized that it was time to face some of my past demons and do some internal healing.
I intuitively found my healer through the internet and was drawn to see her. She was located an hour away from me, but I just felt that she was the person I needed to see. She is what's called a spiritual healer, doing many variations of healing, from Massage, to Hellerwork, to Reiki. I quickly set an appointment to see her and had no idea what to expect.
She started her session with me and immediately, when she put her hands on me, I felt comforted and loved with each move of her hands. The session lasted an hour and still, to this day, the main thing I remember about this session is having the feeling of lightness all throughout my body. This feeling overwhelmed me so much that uncontrollable tears just rolled down my face and I could feel the release of whatever it was that she worked on that day, because at that point, I had no idea what was happening. All I knew is that at that moment, filling my body, was so much love that I had never felt all at one time. I heard her invoke the angels for help but had no idea what she was doing, but I thought whatever it was, was truly magical. I remember thinking about my husband and how he needed to see her too and feel what I'm feeling right now. About a month later, he went to see her for his own amazing experience. That is an incredible story for another day!
I saw my healer for quite some time after that to help me get over the issues of my childhood that haunted me. This was just such an amazing experience for me, that I continued to see her for the physical healing I was in need of due to my thyroid cancer removal, and the havoc it wreaked on my body. To this day, I consider her my miracle! Each session I had with her was such a wonderful experience and I feel that everyone should be so blessed to experience this.
Every single time I saw her, it felt as is somehow more of the wall of armor I'd created around myself just shattered at my feet. I began to feel lighter and filled with a loving light that I could never quite explain. In all the times I'd see her, we would talk briefly about pains of the past I was looking to release or physical pains in the here and now due to thyroid removal and physical dysfunction in my body. She was always able to hone in on what I was feeling and magically remove the pain and fill that space with love, light, and wholeness. I and always left her with some different piece of information that would help me to keep physically well or to feel grounded and mentally well.
It wasn't until about two years after initially seeing my light worker, that I starting looking into Reiki and learned more about the breathtaking healing that Rebecca was able to invoke. Shortly after, I became a Reiki practitioner so that I could help people heal in the beautiful way that she had helped me. Years later, I would become a Reiki Master and be blessed enough to help others heal and then teach them how to heal themselves and others too!
I'd love to hear your experiences with healing. We need to all share the astonishing ways that energy can heal us with the world to make it a better place!
Live, love, and laugh often as we were intended to do!
