December of 2005 my sister underwent surgery to repair a small aneurysm at the base of her brain. The morning of the surgery she laid waiting in pre-op scared and nervous. Completely overwhelmed with fear she begged for someone to give her something to calm down. I stood up and began running Reiki energy to her heart and crown chakra's and in about 15 minutes I saw her begin to calm down. I asked her how she was feeling and she said she felt like someone had just given herf a sedative.
I continued to run energy to her until they came to get her for her surgery which was about an hour and a half. Afterwards when they wheeled her from the operating room she was completely alert and talking to us all the way to the ICU where she was to stay for observation. The nurses kept coming in and asking her if she had any pain and she said no she was fine. They couldn't believe how alert she was and they kept telling her if she had pain to let them know. She didn't take the first pain pill! The doctor's obviously expected her to have quite a headache as they sent her home with major pain killers.
She was doing so well in fact we had to continually remind her she had just had brain surgery and to take it easy! The whole procedure went as smooth as silk and I firmly believe it was due to the awesome healing power of Reiki!
