I would like to share a quick story with you, it’s a true story..
There was a man, aged about 40, family man with 3 young busy boys and a hectic job.
One weekend he tripped over his black Labrador. Luckily the dog was OK, he wasn’t. He broke his collarbone and was in agony. Consultant appointments followed, the only solution was for him to take regular doses of strong pain killers. Consultants couldn’t decide what to do for the best, hoping it would heal and an op not be needed. All the while his mobility was impacted thus affecting his capability to do what he needed to do at home and at work.
He mentioned to me that he was totally fed up with it all, which I could totally empathise with. I asked him if I could give him Reiki, half expecting him to say “What? Raki? That Greek drink, pass me the bottle now!”
Instead he said “Right now I will take whatever anyone can give me to help me get through this.”
No questions about what is Reiki, what does it involve etc, just a willingness to give it a try.
All I asked was that he had an open heart and open mind.
So, he sat still and calm for 20 mins as I provided a power Reiki healing session for him. Immediately I could feel heat at what turned out to be the exact point of injury. He in turn said he could feel coolness from my hands at that location too.
On the following Monday he came and thanked me and said that his collarbone had felt much better as a result of the healing, his pain had subsided, the swelling had reduced and his mobility had increased.
He had mentioned it to his wife, a physio, who responded “Of course Reiki helps, we use it all the time at work as a complementary therapy!”
So, a little bit of Reiki helped him a lot, how lovely!
