Everyone's mind and physical body needs something different, so no two Reiki sessions are the same for any two people. It's for this reason that it's hard to say what Reiki feels like. I know that some people feel the warmth of the energy through their body, while others feel the tingling vibration of the energy. Some people go into a meditative sleep state, while others feel absolutely nothing but relaxed. I can not tell you what you will feel, but I will tell you the story of my first reiki session.
My first session with Rebecca, which I consider to be my healer, was during a time of need for emotional healing. I had recently lost my cousin, who was like a sister to me, to breast cancer. During her illness, she had migrated to alternative medicine for healing while doing chemo, but she lost her battle. She was only 40 years old at the time and it was devastating to the whole family. This alternative medicine intrigued me and so I read as much information I could about it. I felt like it may be time to face some of my past demons and do some internal healing.
I intuitively found Rebecca through the internet and was drawn to see her. She was located an hour away from me, but I just felt that she was the person I needed to see. She is what's called a spiritual healer, doing many variations of healing, from Massage, to Hellerwork, to Reiki. I quickly set an appointment to see her.
Rebecca started her session with me and immediately, when she put her hands on me, I felt comforted and loved with each move of her hands. The session lasted an hour and still, to this day, all I can remember about this session is having the feeling of white light all through my body. This feeling overwhelmed me so much that tears were just rolling down my face. At that moment, filling my body, was so much love that I had never felt all at one time. I remember thinking about my husband and how he needed to see her too and feel what I'm feeling right now. About a month later, he went to see her and continuously sung her praises too.
I saw Rebecca for quite some time to help me get over the issues of my childhood that haunted me. This was just such an amazing experience for me, that soon I went on seeing Rebecca for the physical healing I was in need of due to my thyroid removal, and the havoc it wreaked on my body. To this day, I consider Rebecca my miracle! Each session I had with her was such a wonderful experience and I feel that everyone should be so blessed to experience this.
