So, I had my very first Reiki session, and it was a very positive experience. Here is my opinion. Allot of people just dont know a bunch about Reiki and thats a fair statement. It’s because for the most part, Reiki has either not come up in conversation or has been pushed to the back burner, but that doesn’t mean that one should dismiss an alternative healing method that may be able to help pain and suffering. Do I completely understand the mechanics of Reiki? Of course not. What I can tell you is that, I believe there are many different ‘influences’ at work.
Have you ever heard of the series ‘Healing and the mind’ by Bill Moyers? How about the ‘Power of Intention’ by Wayne Dyer? Or the very popular book entitled ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ By Norman Vincent Peale? I have another one. ‘The Magic Of Thinking Big’ by David Schwartz. PHD. Any study of Zen from the Bhudist’s, Breathe work, or the gentle mindset of Chi Kung from the practice of ‘Kung Fu’, the wildly relaxing art of Yoga and you will hardly scratch the surface of eastern healing modalities. Please note, Reiki will not work for everyone, just like modern western type medicine can only go so far in the remission of certain cancers.
Because I hold a college diploma in electronics, I will attempt to share my side of the equation. If you have ever attempted to magnetize a screwdriver, what do you do? You rub the screwdriver only only one way down the lengh of the screwdriver blade against a permanent magnet. In that way, the magnetic and electrical ‘influences’ can be temporarily captured in the metallic part of the screwdriver. Some screwdrivers accept and hold magnetic properties better than others, just like some people are more sensitive to healing influences of other people. That is my short answer. Let me now guide you through step by step what I experienced with my Reiki practitioner, Jan Morrison.
