Day 19 of "2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge" : When I Was Reiki-ed By Kaddu [by Abhiroop]
On my previous post "Sunday Slumbers And Thunders", The Little Princess left a comment, in response to which, I asked Abhiroop to share his experience of receiving Reiki from me, as a guest post here. He has obliged. So today's post is from him.
Being Reikied by Kaddu is like being taken on a roller coaster ride with a drunk monkey at the controls.
Kidding. I was frankly skeptical of the entire thing. I did not believe that you could make contact, let alone heal, another person from a distance, using nothing but your thoughts.
I was seriously unwell last year. I was suffering from a whole litany of stubborn ailments and during an especially rough time, I turned to Kaddu, who was extremely kind to offer to perform Reiki on/for me. Gratis. Kaddu is a person I respect greatly for her straightforward, logical approach to things and if she's advocating Reiki, well, that's enough for me. Besides, she is practically family. The sessions began, an hour at a time, every afternoon. I would lie down in my room in Delhi and Kaddu would be in hers, 200 KM away.
I felt something.
It was spooky. At the end of a session, we'd speak on the phone for a while and discuss how it went. I was repeatedly astounded by how she could accurately tell me which part of my body was, to her, receiving Reiki strongly, because it was, invariably, the same part I'd felt a distinct tingling, or even a mild stiffness in. What was even more surprising is how drowsy I would be at the end of a session. I am not one to take a siesta, have never been, but Kaddu's session would, I don't know, do something to me that just made me sleepy.
We discontinued the sessions after a week as I had to go back to work. I did feel better. A significant bit mentally and some, physically too. While a part of me remains skeptical because I don't understand what was happening, the fact is that something did happen. There is definitely something in this Reiki thing. Whatever it is.
So that was Abhiroop's experience with Reiki. Of course, the experience and results vary from person to person. If you're interest in knowing more, there's a lot of reading material available on the internet about Reiki. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to share in the comments. I'll try to answer them to the best of my knowledge. :)
