I went to a class on Reiki last night – interesting stuff. The presenter was Frans Steine, author of “The Inner Heart of Reiki” and he was a great presenter to say the least.
My exposure to Reiki started a whopping 2 weeks ago when I received my first “hands on” from the amazing Maria Kammerer. I cannot begin to describe what it feels like, I can only say that it is kind of a happy completeness.
From what I have been able to learn in my very short amount time being aware of it – Reiki is about being aware of the light and energy that we each carry with us; making sure that it is not covered up with anger, worry or ego; and allowing it to exude from our being through compassion (including compassion for ourselves). Those who are practiced in this awareness can share their energy and light with others – or, more accurately, encourage the light and energy of another to come to the surface.
Pretty amazing stuff. I feel it every day. I had a man tell me how beautiful my smile was a few weeks ago, no one I knew, just a guy walking out of Panera as I walked in. Seriously – I almost skipped inside. I was glowing and smiling and happy. He may not have known it, but he was letting his Reiki out and I was grateful for it. I need to let mine out more often.
