As a practitioner I took my first Reiki class at 19. My teacher was a small women. She was a nun “Sister Mary” – She was a teacher at my massage school and I loved everything about her.
I remember coming into school one day and having a terrible headache. Sister Mary asked me to sit down at a desk. She came by my side and put one hand on the front of my head and one on the back.
She was very quiet, and I was not sure what she was doing – but as I sat there her touch began to feel magical. It was so warm, nurturing and loving. It felt as if I could have just melted under her hands and almost as if they where vibrating.
She put her hands on my head for a few minutes and I began to mentally and physically relax.
When she finally removed her hands my headache was completely gone but yet it still felt like she had her hand on my head…. I felt so warm and relaxed! I asked her, what she was doing? (I thought she was probably praying for me cause lord knows I needed it at 19) She said she was doing Reiki to help take away the pain from my headache!
At that exact moment I knew I wanted to learn how to do Reiki so, that I could help people feel the loving beautiful healing energy that Sister Mary had just shared with me!
That is how all this began and now here I am over 20 years later and hope that I can share the same amazing experience with you, that Sister Mary shared with me!
