I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I had been asked to play the role of a “patient” a few weeks ago as I went with a friend to see a Reiki Master and get introduced to another Eastern Medicine tool. The coolest thing was I didn’t tell this Reiki Master about any discomforts or pain I was feeling. About a year ago, I had what I thought a little minor hamstring pull, however, I still felt it after sitting and any attempt to jog. I was totally fine lifting and never felt a thing.
Well, as she was getting my energy to move, banging noises over me, doing this other witchcraft type shit that I couldn’t explain (I’m being funny here, but I know there are a lot of people that don’t really agree, like, or get this stuff), my energy started to move. Once she got my energy to move, they were able to tell that my right leg was shorter than my left. They did some manual work on me and some PNF-type stretching, I heard a pop at one point and boom, I felt good. She also worked on some other things and I got off the table and I felt so much better. Now, this physical stuff was pretty cool, but the mental component is what blew my mind! I literally slept for 12 hours that night and just kept dreaming. For the next week, I had this calm feeling and no stress or anxiety. I just felt relaxed. It was awesome. Once again, another Eastern Medicine tool that I am totally hooked on. I don’t know if it’s just my luck that I respond so quickly to these things and that’s why I love them so much, but I do hope if you have never tried it, you will open your mind and explore these other types of healings.
Have you tried this before? Or are you open to this? Drop me a line, I would love to hear your thoughts! If you have never tried it before, take five minutes to meditate. See how you feel. There are 2 great apps: Headspace and Insight Timer. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but a few minutes to disconnect will help. Let me know how it goes! Until next week, Charlene
