# 39 Reiki

Yesterday was my second session of Reiki and the beginning of a long relationship with the talented Kelly Scholtz.  By her own admission, she is still learning but after undergoing this therapeutic bliss, I firmly believe she is on her to way to mastery.  There are the usual critics, skeptics (me being one of them) and nonbelievers of the practice but until you are on the table experiencing the flow--or whatever it is called--reserve your judgment and give it a try.

I had written in my sixteenth blog about Dr. Jeffery Dusek's research from the Penny George Institute at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and his conclusion that Reiki and other integrative treatments did reduce cancer inpatients' pain. That led me to her doorstep figuring it wouldn't hurt to venture a look at an additional alternative to modern medicine.

I could carry on about this immensely satisfying and healing experience but will close with a more accurate and nonemotional description from the website.

"Reiki is a natural, simple, safe, effective healing system that uses spiritually guided universal energy, the energy which permeates our entire universe and all living things. This energy is channeled through the hands of the practitioner into the body and aura of the receiver. It is an ancient healing system that has been used for thousands of years and was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui. Reiki is a Japanese term meaning universal energy, or spiritually guided universal energy, because it is the divine consciousness, the All-knowing that guides this life force. Because of this, Reiki can also be sent to someone who is not physically present, this is called distance healing. It can also be used on animals and plants. During a Reiki session, the person receiving Reiki lies or sits, fully clothed, while the practitioner places his hands lightly on or a few inches over the person's head and body. Reiki opens the mind and spirit to the causes of disease and pain and the necessity for taking responsibility for one's life. Reiki heals on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to help return the body to its natural perfect state. It increases spiritual awareness and progress and is a means for each person to access the richness of his soul and discover his own great potential. Reiki is not a system of religious beliefs." 

Thanks for reading # 39 of 7777.  (Sorry, no time to figure out how to rid the blue)
