Reiki Retreat Reflections
by Debs Hoy
What an interesting month it has been, and what a relief to have the structure and support of a global Reiki retreat to help me stay accountable to myself in a time of profound transition!
After 3 years in America, I had been back in the UK only 10 days when I was invited to join Touch. I have been using the self-treatment time and journaling to reflect upon the changes I am facing now and to stay connected to my truth as I relocate to a new part of England.
I am thankful for Pamela’s suggestions to specifically note the sensations felt during Reiki self treatment. As a writer, I realize a need to specify the experiences of a Reiki session. Describing each session really helped to pinpoint physical sensations as they occur and I uncovered ways to move forward and heal any sticking points as the retreat progressed.
I visited my family home and was amazed: remarkable shifts had occurred! My pet allergies decreased substantially, my relationships have improved, and a friend’s veggie garden is blooming after watering it while thinking about Reiki!
The full moon on the last day of the retreat saw me complete a cycle of intense job applications and let go of the outcome. Surrendering to the on-going rhythm of Reiki, I am thankful for the gift of practice and this opportunity to hold an awareness of Reiki in daily life. There are many wonderful outcomes from 21 days of focused practice; the effects are far reaching. I have been so enthused by the lively and thoughtful comments on the blog.
Thank you, Debs, for inspiring others to take the Usui Virtual Reiki Retreat!
