With all of the wonderful alternative and holistic therapies I have tried, Reiki had alluded me until last week when at a Retreat in Somerset www.hubatno3.com just opened by Lynne Franks, I decided to try it.
I had booked a massage with the lovely Helen, a resident practitioner, who is also an expert in Reiki and a clairvoyant, and as she described the Universal energy of healing called Reiki, felt compelled to book a session.
Helen had already told me that whilst rendering the treatment, she had flashes of insight into the person, in the form of images or names of people or even glimpses of their future. She asked me if it was something I would be interesting in hearing throughout the session. I was fascinated, and a little sceptical, even though I firmly believe in holistic healing and even clairvoyance, I had arrived with a severe lower back pain which I was sure would not be shifted in one session.
How wrong could I be? Helen was obviously an expert in the field of Reiki, and came up with names she could have not possibly known before.
The practise of Reiki in Japanese is translated as ‘miraculous or divine spirit or intention’ and I could not describe it better. After the session I felt elated if not a little light headed, and Helen told me to drink lots of water, which I did.
The following day my back pain had disappeared.
I couldn’t believe it either – it was miraculous, and Helen had not touched my body at all throughout the Reiki session, just held her hands across the areas she felt needed help, which were the painful areas and my left knee which had also been giving me a bit of discomfort.
Descriptions of Reiki seem to be Universal healing energy administered through healing hands, and even though I had questioned the validity, it had worked.
I have to confess, Helen seemed extremely tuned into me and a great practitioner in the art of healing and Reiki, which was an awesome combination, and so if you can’t get down the The Hub, at least contact an expert in your area and try it.
But for those of you who are believers in Universal energy, it is a good start, and perhaps you can begin by following these simple principles
Just for today do not worry
Just for today do not anger
Honour your parents, teachers and elders
Earn your living honestly
Show gratitude to every living thing
