This previous weekend, my Reiki group opened the doors and offered free Reiki to the public. Usually, a good treatment is about 20 minutes long with four practitioners surrounding a receiver. During times of slow influx of people, practitioners have a chance to receive Reiki from fellow practitioners. I was fortunate to have a chance to lay on the massage table and receive.
My treatment was bittersweet, however. Bitter because a surge of public guests entered through the doors while I was receiving. And, it is etiquette that practitioners who are receiving Reiki finish their treatment quickly so that others’ waiting to receive can have a turn. But my treatment was also sweet. Sweet because even though my treatment was 10 minutes long, I felt the most relaxed and grounded I have felt in a long time and was amazed at how connected and satisfied I felt with my life.
The power of Reiki de-stresses a person faster than you would ever expect. It’s great to be treated and a practitioner.
