My Reiki journey began in 2001. I was filled with stress from my work and was seeking relaxation. I had tried a number of modalities, but was still seeking the “right” solution. Then I saw an ad for Elaine Floriolli’s Reiki practice in Wilmington, Delaware. In her ad she used a series of hand images that aligned in pairs in a vertical direction. For some reason I was drawn to this ad and to Reiki.
I went to my first Reiki appointment with no knowledge of the practice or what was involved. Trusting my intuition (for a change) I went to Elaine. She explained Reiki to me and I eagerly hopped on the massage table ready for my session. It was delightful and very relaxing.
Now, to be honest, here’s the part that my left brain has trouble admitting to, and I apologize to all my left-brained friends who may read this, but this is what I experienced. During the session, I kept seeing, in my mind’s eye, angels, who were children, flying up in front of me. Circling around me as I laid on the table. Playfully dancing around me, flying and delighting. I felt as if I was floating above the table.
After the session, I recounted my experience to Elaine and she smiled knowingly. I did feel very relaxed.
The next time I went to Elaine’s for an appointment, I was exiting the highway when a hawk swooped across the windshield in the same manner the angels had. It was unharmed and I was drawn deeper into my Reiki journey.
Wishing you light and peace.
