I feel guided to share this experience...
Coming home from an event, I got off the max in my downtown neighborhood when I noticed a crowd of people standing around something. When I got closer, I realized it was a bloodied, slumped over, non-responsive man. Without thinking, I put my things down and knelt down beside him. I noticed how much blood there was, and he didn't look like he was breathing...
The ambulance was on its way, but knew I needed to do something. Time is critical when the body is in shock and shutting down after trauma.
I placed my hand on his cheek and held up his face, "Sweetheart, are you okay?", he wasn't responding or breathing. I placed my other hand over his heart. The Reiki flowed quickly and strongly.
Within a few moments, he gasped, took a deep breath in, opened his eyes, and mumbled an apology through an outpour of emotions. "You're okay, sweetheart, you didn't do anything wrong. You're safe now."
I helped him sit up, held up his head, and asked him to look at my eyes and tell me what color they were. I understood the need to keep him conscious and talking, having had a brain injury myself. By then, the paramedics arrived and asked me to step aside. I stayed with him and continued to flow Reiki at a distance while they talked to him.
One of the police officers leaned over to me and commented on how amazing it was that he was standing and talking when he was unresponsive on the ground only a few minutes prior... I agreed, it was amazing.
I look forward to the day when Reiki is known and understood by all. When it is recognized for being the powerful healing force that it is.
My intention is for EVERYONE to know that they can do this too. Can you imagine living in a world where we cared enough about one another where the natural instinct was to help & heal?
That can be today. ❤
We've all faced situations where the outcome wasn't what we expected, which might have been very painful to process. Perhaps we realized that what we wanted wasn't for us. Or maybe we've been beating ourselves up over what we "should have" or "should not have" done.
