Reiki

So I’m not a poet.   But my very first sessions with Reiki were so moving I felt a need to try and capture the experience.

Here’s the amazing thing.  I feel GREAT.  Better than I have in months.  I have energy.  My pain has almost disappeared.   I can get things done with little effort.  It’s like suddenly my natural state is in movement and I have to make an effort to come to a still point.

Reiki? New meditations or prayers from friends?  Suddenly working chemo?

All I am sure of is that I’m really looking forward to my next Reiki session.

Reiki

Session 1

First there’s the pleasant tingling. Especially in my scalp.
Waves of energy, vibrating emotion, thought, physical pain
It curls and folds, twists and opens
As her hands pass over my head, face, neck, arms, back, front
Touch down
On feet
Grounded
And up, swirling
Red curls back from my mind
Relief is in the space left behind
Blue
Then green

I walk away
Calm water
Broad open sky
Peace
Rolling
Natural
Forward
Movement

Her face is wracked with grief and love.

Reiki

Session 2

Purple core
Doorways open
Solid stance
Hands pull
Float
Coax
Colors sit
Stubborn?
Centered
Hands on feet
Ground
Ground
Orange leaks up
Around the edges.

Hours
later,
in the physical memory
My skull opens
And light pours out

I swim a kilometer for the first time in four months.
