So what can Reiki do? It’s all very well for us to explain what Reiki is but I thought it would be helpful to include our experiences of Reiki. There are multiple example of how Reiki has helped so many people but TRC are building a picture of actual situations experienced….
About 15 years ago I was going to my daughters, staying overnight keeping her company as her husband was working away. I went straight from work and was greeted at the door by my daughter with a listless 2 year old in her arms. “Mum, please just Reiki him.” He had been poorly for a couple of days and my daughter was trying, unsuccessfully, to cook tea. We went into the front room and I sat him on my lap on the settee and we watched some children’s program on the TV. I placed my hands on his legs and starting giving him Reiki. After a few minutes his 4 year old sister climbed up on to the settee too, cuddling into my one side whilst the cat strolled over, jumped onto the settee by my other side and she, too, cuddled in. We all received Reiki.
About 20 minutes later my daughter called us for tea. I carried my grandson into the dinning room and sat him in his high chair. After not having eaten for a couple of days, he happily munched his way through over half of his dinner. A result! After tea he played happily with his sister until bedtime. He settled down to sleep and we didn’t hear from him till the next morning.
I had stayed over and was sitting on the settee the next morning when he came down. He clambered back on to my lap and I automatically placed my hands on his legs again and started to give him Reiki. “No nanna – no hands.” He carefully lifted each of my hands off his legs and placed them by my side on the settee. He obviously didn’t feel the need of Reiki at that time.
Later on that afternoon my daughter had a few friends round with their small children. All the children were playing out in the garden when we all suddenly heard a crash followed by a scream. Immediately we heard the patter of tiny feet and ……. “Nanna – hands. Hands – quick nanna.” He had fallen of the slide in the garden. In floods of tears he ran straight in to me, again sitting on the settee. He grabbed one of my hands and placed it on his tummy and the second one he placed on his back. He stood quietly for 5 minutes as I gave him Reiki. “O.K. nanna, ‘nough.” He then ran off happily.
He was 2 years old. He didn’t know anything about Reiki. He did know that when he had a hurt, nanna’s hands made him feel better, and they still do.
This became the norm. If any of the children felt poorly they would ask for “Hands please nanna”. Even now at the ages of 19, 17 and 11 they will still ask for Reiki when they are hurting or distressed.
