I’m not sure if I found Reiki or if Reiki found me. Whichever way it was, it transformed my life, filling it with this beautiful Universal energy that nurtures, strengthens, heals and supports overall well-being and growth.
My first brush with Reiki occurred in the shape of a small miracle back in 1996. My mother was laid up in bed with severe damage to the sciatic nerve which starts in the small of the back and goes all the way down to the feet. She had been lying in bed – 24 hours a day – for more than a month. She could not even sit up in bed. We had been told she needed surgery and, if the surgery were successful, she might be able to move around in a wheelchair. But she would still not be able to stand.
While we were waiting for the surgery, someone suggested Reiki and my mother agreed. A healer began to do distance Reiki from his home. Once or twice a day my mother would tell us she could feel energy moving along her legs and feet. My father and I assumed it was “all in her mind.” We were happy she was more cheerful, even though we were sure it was false hope.
