Reiki Homework

/ posted in: General

For homework last night we were supposed to work on someone else. That could be a person or an animal. We were also warned that we might be bit off. The attunement process may make you feel weird physically or mentally for a while.

On the way home I got a call that a neighbor had brought over a cat that had been hit by a car. It had a hurt leg but seemed fine other than that. I figured that I had found my homework. I didn’t know what else I was supposed to do. It isn’t like I have a home x-ray machine.

When I got there I found myself very overwhelmed by the noise and action. It wasn’t even unusually loud or anything. It was just too much for me. I tried to work on the cat but she wasn’t having anything to do with it. If I tried to send energy in the direction of her leg she’d either tuck it under her body and turn her back to me or she’d ram her head into the palm of my hand. I wasn’t sure if that was meant to block the energy or not. I sent her off with some old pain medication of Snowball’s that expired but will work enough to take the edge off until she can get x-rayed and see if anything else needs to be done.

I ended up taking a bath and just relaxing for a while in quiet. Then I felt more up to socializing. I told the SO that he was my homework. He’s going to be interesting to work on. He’s very intuitive and psychic but his body is a mess. Mentally he has issues too. (And I mean that in the nicest possible way!)

I started off just scanning his body for differences in energy over different parts of his body. He has significant nerve damage in one arm. I felt his good arm and it felt dead and his bad arm felt fine. I was disappointed that I couldn’t feel what I thought I should feel. Then I realized that I had my left and right confused and that the “dead” arm was the damaged one. Left and right has always messed me up!

I started sending energy to him. I had my hands over his face. They were about three inches away and he said that his face was on fire. Cool! I moved them though since I wanted a willing victim volunteer. I just worked on him briefly, mostly on his right side. Then I laid down and we discussed it. He said that he felt heat all through his body. It was prickly on his legs. Not pleasant. I think that’s because he has a gazillion energy blocks. Then he said that he had a headache on his left side. I wasn’t sure if he wanted me to work on that since he just said that he didn’t like it. But he asked me too. He had his eyes closed but said that he could see lots of white light. After a few minutes he said that it was a little better and that he was more relaxed. Apparently I am now on retainer to work on him every night.
