In 2007 I was expecting a baby and on finding out I was pregnant I wanted to give up smoking. I knew I couldn’t use patches or use gum, so I sought out another way to help me.
It has been suggested to me that Reiki Healing may help me to relax and also help me to give up the cigarettes naturally. Reiki uses pure energy from the universe. It is then channeled through the practioner. When the session begins you may feel heat from their hands over your body. The heat and energy aids healing and can help with anxiety, stress and aiding to give up smoking.
After careful consideration I booked a session, as I was confident that it would not harm me or my baby.
On the day of the appointment I was greeted by a young Lady called Kat. She was very nice and made me feel at ease. I followed her upstairs and into a small room. After having a short discussion and filling in all the paperwork, I took of my shoes and lay on the treatment bed.
Kat put on some relaxing music and then started to work over my body. She started at my head first and worked her way down to my feet. As she did this I could feel the warmth of her hands over my body.
Who was that?
A Strange thing happened, as Kat was healing my feet I felt two hands being placed on my head. They were there until Kat had finished. I did think that perhaps someone else had come in the room to assist her, but the door was closed before we started and I didn’t hear it open and close again. When Kat had finished she went through her notes that she had written down and fed them back to me. These were related to areas that she had healed, my heart chakra being one of them.
Before I went, I thanked her and then asked her about what had happened to me. I told her that as she was at my feet I felt hands on my head. She said yes, as I was healing you, a lady with long white hair and a long white gown on was stood behind you. She had what appeared to be flames coming from her palms. She placed her hands on your head and helped with the healing. I had never heard about this before and it scared me a bit. She explained that I must be spiritual and that is why I could sense and feel something. She told me not to worry and that no harm would come to me. I believed her and then made my way home. I didn’t sleep that well that night thinking about it. But no harm came to me or my baby and after a few more weeks I had stopped smoking.
I have now been cigarette free for 14 years.
