Yesterday, my SIL got everyone out of the house (no easy task) and I had my first Reiki session. I have major neurological problems- two kinds of neuropathy and a white matter disease- and at this point they are all progressing. My SIL believes she can use Reiki to heal me of all of them. I agreed to suspend disbelieve and give it a chance.
My SIL has a room that she uses for Reiki and meditation. One wall has 6″ squares, each with a Reiki symbol, arranged in two sets on the far wall. There are two antique brass bowls, each with a wooden cylinder, and each makes its own distinctive sound. There are many crystals of varying sizes and colors. There was a large massage table in the center. Music was playing, but low enough that I wasn’t trying to identify it. Directly outside a pair of French doors, there was a a ten foot waterfall,the sound of which attracted my attention much more than the music.
I laid down and closed my eyes. I heard her putting something on the table, I think in the four corners. My legs started twitching and then went into spasms. Even though my eyes were closed, I saw sea green everywhere. I noticed an unfamiliar odor- not unpleasant, but definitely some thing I didn’t recognize. The color slowly changed to grey. I don’t really know how long it took, but it seemed like time was stretched out.
I am not sure what, if anything, happened. My SIL was pleased and said it went well. I am still processing the whole episode. When I draw conclusions, I’ll share.
