Reiki Helps Hysterectomy

by Emilie Garman

I was facing an operation to have fibroid tumors removed. The fibroids in my uterus had been growing slowly over a 15 year period. Now, after menopause, they continued to grow at an accelerated rate.

After consulting with my gynecologist, we realized all alternatives were exhausted and I needed a hysterectomy.

The thought of being operated on made me a nervous wreck. As the date for surgery grew closer, it became hard for me to have a peaceful night's sleep. I often awoke in the middle of the night seeing myself being wheeled into the operating room.

Luckily, my friend Doug, had just started to study Reiki a few months before. He offered to come the night before the operation and apply what he had learned on me. I agreed.

I rested on the couch, listened to soothing music, and Doug applied the Reiki touch. After about 45 minutes I was so relaxed I could hardly get off the couch. That night I slept soundly until morning.

Two weeks before the operation a pint of my own blood was stored in case of need. However, my doctor's words after the operation were "The operation went well, with very little bleeding." I felt that Reiki had helped.

The next day, as hospital routine dictated, I had to walk. I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I ached, I was nauseous and my eyes wouldn't focus. While I was feeling so miserable, along came Doug into the hospital room. He gave me a Reiki treatment and within minutes all those miserable symptoms disappeared.

Reiki worked for me and I made sure I told my doctor about my Reiki experience. I hope more people will be helped before and after operations with Reiki.
