Hi everyone. I would like to start by thanking Laurelle Gaia and Michael Baird for giving me and several good men here the healing gift of Reiki. You have helped me greatly. Thank you.
Bodhisattva I am not. But I am a better person now that Reiki is a big part of my life. I was one of the blessed men who participated in receiving Reiki and were featured in the article entitled “Bodhisattvas Behind Bars: Reiki in Prison,” by Laurelle and Michael in Reiki News #14, Fall 2005.
I used to have so much anger and hate coursing through me. So much so that I was the man who was videotaped shooting at the White House. Yes, that “was” me. Now I’m feeling much better because I’ve learned to heal myself using Reiki and by helping and healing others.
It’s not a miracle. It’s about welcoming Love into our hearts and souls, then allowing that Love to show us the truth. After facing the truth of where the hate comes from, Reiki steps forward and the healing begins. Thank you Reiki.
After Laurelle placed her hands upon my head, I had a beautiful experience. As I was sitting there three angels appeared around me. I don’t even believe in angels, but there they were—one at each side of me and the third right behind me. I stood up and started to walk forward. Light from a thousand Suns received me as if I’d been lost. I was so overwhelmed that I started to cry as my soul filled with Love. And all this happened within mere seconds. Thank you Reiki.
Being in prison can sometimes “seem” dark and violent. But it’s not. We have the choice in “projecting” what we will. Through the use of Reiki I choose to heal and to project a positive and healing energy around the prison. I have honestly noticed a big decrease in violence since Laurelle and Michael gave us the gift of Loving Reiki Healing.
Lastly, my change is also physical. My health and energy have increased, and I’m in better physical condition than when I was nineteen years old and in the Army. I feel great! Thank you Reiki!
And thank you all, and thank you William Rand. Please take care and have a wonderful New Year!
