Reiki – a very portable therapy
Reiki is with you every moment of every day. When I went to Egypt on a Reiki trip in October, 2006 arranged by Louise Heseltine (what a memorable trip that was Louise!), we were in the Valley of the Kings. It was fiercely hot, and I was coming out of one of the tombs. It had been a LONG way down and involved uneven steps. A gentleman with a stick was just starting his journey down. I advised him that it was very steep and that he might have a lot of difficulty. Surprisingly, he heeded my advice and we both walked back up to the top. I then asked him what his problem was and he said he was in excruciating pain in his back (sciatica). I told him we were part of a Reiki healing group visiting Egypt and if he would be agreeable to give me his name, our group would send him Reiki that evening…..
When I mentioned this to Louise, she was very enthusiastic and we all sent him some distant healing that evening.
We were in Egypt for two weeks, travelling all over the place – Cairo, Luxor, etc. So you can imagine my surprise when we went to visit Karnack Temple (consisting of 62 acres of temples!) a few days later, that walking towards me was this same gentleman, this time without his stick! What are the chances of meeting the same person twice in a place like Egypt!!! I greeted him and he recognised me immediately. I asked him how he was and he said: “Remarkable, you are seeing me here walking so much better! However, I still have some pain in my left ankle…………”
Without further ado, I got down on my haunches and gave him a blast of Reiki. Unknown to me, Louise captured that moment, above! After a few minutes, I asked him how it was, and he was delighted. He said the foot was tons better!!
We did Reiki and empowerments in many sacred places and thanks to our contacts there (Khaled, the curator at Karnack, and Ahmed) we saw many sacred sites not normally open to the public….. So thank you Louise for that wonderful memorable trip.
As you can see, Reiki goes with you on holiday, and can be used to help anyone who is in trouble……and you don’t need to pack anything extra in your suitcase…..
Have you got a story to tell about giving Reiki “on the go?” Would love to hear from you!!
