“When you were working on my crown,” she started.
“I wasn’t working on you,” I interrupted. Confident in our relationship, I let the importance of the point overrule my manners.
She rolled her eyes like a teenager, miffed that I was doing my not-working thing again.
“I’m so sorry to interrupt,” I apologized, “but ‘work’ doesn’t express where I am when offering treatment, and if you think I’m working on you, that alters your expectations. I was simply practicing, enjoying sharing my Reiki hands with you.”
I watched the penny drop. Her softened facial expression, the dilation of her eyes, and slow tilt of her head evidenced a shift in understanding.
“I loved that you stayed on my crown for so long,” she said. “It felt really good.”
