I love sharing Reiki, and especially with people I know well.
Yesterday I had the honor of sharing Reiki with my co-worker Liz Torres, who did the book covers and other graphics for our fiction stories, Zombie Killing Stoners.
Since she is a budding graphic artist and had never done a book cover before, she offered to trade for a treatment with me. She had the choice of anything I do, and she chose Reiki since it was something she had never tried before.
I hadn't shared Reiki with anyone outside of my house in a while, which made this treatment a little more intense.
At the end Liz was profoundly relaxed and said she felt "like she was floating." I will assume she had a great sleep last night.
Do you need to relax? Have a little less stress? Sleep better?
Now, when I first came to NYC I was offering Reiki routinely at Real Pilates, and every client who took a treatment loved it. People who suffered with headaches were pain free for a few days. People who couldn't sleep more than three hours straight managed to sleep through the night.
And they never rebooked, even though they would tell me every time they saw me how much better they felt after the treatment.
Two years later, I realize that many people have a problem doing things they don't completely understand. And Reiki is hard to understand.
See, I tend to be very literal-minded, but from years of experience I know that Reiki works.
I know that after Reiki I will sleep better, think better, feel better. And I don't question this anymore.
To use an analogy I've used before, I don't know exactly how many medications work, but I take them because they do produce the desired effect.
As does Reiki.
