I offer Reiki as a hospice volunteer. I had the honor of seeing a patient weekly for 18 months. She was suffering from heart failure. During our sessions, she relaxed, and many times slept. Afterward, she was thankful and expressed feeling good. When she was in pain, the pain would go away. The last time I saw her, she stated that she could receive Reiki all day.
I had another patient that had kidney cancer. She was experiencing pain in her hip. I only saw her twice before she passed, but the Reiki made a difference. The first time I saw her, I could see the stress on her face. Our session lasted an hour, and she slept. Afterward, she was relaxed and expressed feeling relief from her pain. The second time I saw her, she was in pain to the point of tears. Again, she slept during our session. When she woke up, she was smiling from ear to ear.
It has been such a joy to see how Reiki offers relief from stress and pain. Sharing Reiki with others is an awesome experience. It is very rewarding to be a positive force in people's lives.
