I've been a traditional Usui Reiki master since Fall of 2002, and since I began the path of Reiki have seen beautiful healing. I am also a psychotherapist. Recently, though, there was one such experience that took me by surprise.
A few months ago, I was doing therapy with a client who was experiencing an emotional crisis. I instinctively reached out to her. Taking her hands and holding them there for the rest of our time together, she spoke and cried. The Reiki activated, and I felt it flowing through my palms into hers. A few minutes into it, she looked at me and said, "Your hands are getting so hot!" I asked if she wanted me to stop and she said, "NO, please don't stop." She went on talking about some very difficult emotional issues (it was a breakthrough for her to do so) and continued to cry off and on.
At another point she said to me, "I can feel the strangest tingling going up my wrists and lower arms." Again I asked her if she wanted me to stop and she said no. This woman was aware I am a Reiki practitioner though I had never introduced it into any of our sessions. We finished the session as we normally would.
A month later she said to me, "I don't know why but my carpal tunnel syndrome is completely gone." She had suffered from it for years and had considered surgery due to the pain she had. At our last contact, she continues to be symptom-free and has full use of hands and wrists.
I am thankful for the gift of Reiki and the spontaneity with which Spirit leads me to help bring this Light of Unconditional Love to others. It is a Blessing to be a part of this miraculous work—day to day, heart to heart.
