How my Reiki experience went!
Before I write this blog, I want you all to understand that everyone's experiences with Reiki are different and some people won't see anything or feel anything other than relaxation; and that's fine. Other's do see things and experience different emotions.
Today I have felt emotional, a little weirded out by what I saw and obviously feeling daft in case people don't believe me but I also feel like I'm not bothered and at peace with myself, my head feels lighter; I haven't had a period for three months due to a pill I was taking that didn't suit me but I started my period this morning!!! Like WTF!!!
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui. Since originating in Japan, reiki has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.
Last week I wrote a post on Facebook asking what everyone thought of Reiki and the response was huge, people couldn't believe I've never tried it. I then received a message from Colette, my new Reiki Master who said she did it and I booked in. She asked me why I wanted to have it and I said I didn't know. I honestly thought it was a load of rubbish years ago but I've recently gone through a few personal matters and something genuinely drew me to it; she said that it must be the right time as it calls to you. I was a little freaked as I'll be honest I am a shit bag but I thought no, I want to try it so I booked in.
My Reiki Experience
I arrived at Colette's and her house is beautiful; there was an instant calm feeling when I met her and she's really pretty as well. She had the bed set up and asked me a few questions which I told her and she told me what Reiki was, how you have Guides in the Universe and as she is doing the Reiki the Guides are working on my Chakra's.
Colette told me you have seven points on your body and if they are not aligned then this is why you can get poorly, physically or mentally or attract negativity so the Guides during Reiki fix your Chakra's.
She told me that when you die you go back to the Universe and you always stay with your universal family; you regroup with them and you will see what you have learned from the last life and decide what you will learn from the next life; the lessons can take thousands of years but you will always regroup with your family.
She asked me to lie on the bed and relax certain parts of my body; I was told to hold a crystal in each hand and to use my third eye to ask for my Guides to come.
Obviously my eyes were shut so I couldn't see what Colette was doing but what I saw was just surreal really. If you think of a Kaleidoscope and the colours and shapes coming in and out of view but distorted; that is the only way to describe it.
It started off with Lavender Balloon shapes floating to the left of my face and floating away; when I looked this up it states " Imagination, visionary, daydreamer, etheric"; DEFINITELY ME! During this, I honestly felt like my whole body was spinning; like I was lay down on an invisible roundabout and someone was spinning it; it was actually really intense and I had to stop for second as it was turning my stomach. I then had to repeat after Colette and ask for my Guides to come.
I then saw a triangle with the figure of a man in the triangle, I wasn't scared, it was just peaceful. To the left of my sight I saw a man's waving me to come with him; and to my left I saw a Pink River with Mountains. The river was flowing towards me. Upon looking this up, it states the pink means " Loving, tender, sensitive, sensual, artistic, affection, purity, compassion; new or reviewed romantic relationship. Can indicate clairaudience."
I could then see the outlines of people but it wasn't like they were around me, it was like I was with them.
I saw a baby crawling from a birds eye view with a nappy on. I saw an angelic man with wings who then morphed into a dragon and then went out of view, I saw the colour Red which "relates to the physical body, hart or circulation. The densest colour, it creates the most friction. Friction attracts or repels; money worries or obsessions; anger or unforgiveness; anxiety or nervousness".
I then saw what I thought was an Asian style monument with three towers but I realise now it was a temple; I saw a monk and he was just about to take his hood off but then faded out; I told Colette about this and she said she sees him every time she does Reiki and he never shows his face.
This picture is really similar to the monument I saw - I've never been here - it's in Cambodia.
This will make you piss laughing but the only face I saw distinctly was what looked like a 19th Century Judge and he had a stern face with a thin nose like he was telling me off - how mad is that - he had a big Victorian wig on and Ruffled Shirt.
I then saw the colour pale yellow - which means "Emerging psychic and spiritual awareness; optimism and hopefulness; positive excitement about new ideas".
I then saw the guides again but this time they had a white outline rather than black, they were big and stocky and I didn't really sense any women...again weird.
I then was on a boat and I was in a storm; no rain but the waves were huge and I wasn't scared. I actually felt like my body was on the boat - seriously weird, like this.
As I was seeing all these crazy shapes, Colette was sometimes hovering over me with her hands or sometimes touching me on certain parts of my body and you could actually feel the heat from her hands; they were boiling hot.
At what point my eyes were streaming but I wasn't crying if that makes sense.
As she brushed her hands down my legs and out of my feet I felt shooting down my legs and body.
I also felt like the crystals were apart of my hand; I couldn't actually feel them anymore.
I can honestly say that afterwards when I got home I felt hazy and light headed; I can say I am now a convert and totally believe after my experience.
