I just wrapped up my first experience with reiki and I am not sure how to write about what it felt like. First, it was deeply relaxing and it allowed me to meditate in a way that was self-revealing. For the first time trying something, I feel like I definitely learned what to expect for the next time and I discovered some lessons about myself. Second, I was not expecting to hear the crackling of energy in the room or to feel some of the sensations I did. It was a little unnerving, but in a secure way, like watching a thunderstorm from a distance while you’re really sleepy. I do love a good thunderstorm, but if they make you anxious that may not be the best analogy. Anyway, I am looking forward to my Second Encounter with Reiki and I promise to blog about it. Now that I know what to expect, I’m wondering what unexpected things I might discover.
