Reiki, Death and Pain
This post is a more personal post but it something that I wish you all to hear. During my journey as a Reiki practitioner my mum developed cancer. This was such a huge shock for us as a family but one which we all approached with great strength and as much positivity as a family can when cancer hits.
My mums cancer was terminal and it was battle she fought with such grace and courage and because of her I have strength, compassion and love.
With terminal cancer you feel helpless, and we try as human beings to do all that we can to support and assist those around us. I turned to my Reiki, oils, affirmations and crystals. I frequently sent my mother distance Reiki as she coped with the affects of the chemo therapy and struggled to sleep. I would give her Reiki when she was in her bed unable to get up and during this periods of Reiki, and after she would find rest, relaxation and relief. She was transported to a place where she could feel freedom from the cancer.
For myself I would often self Reiki or visit my Reiki master for sessions. Allowing me to release and explore my emotions and pain safely, with someone I trust and to find peace in an otherwise chaotic world.
As my mum reached the final days of her cancer journey her pain began to increase and would come spasmodically. I stood by her bed when she was in pain and barely able to speak. I began to channel Reiki energy and with this her groans would stop, the muscles in her face would soften and relax. With each session she would drift off into deep sleep and away from the pain that prevented her from rest.
She would mumble "it's so relaxing". For me this was the greatest gift to be able to give her. I am truly blessed to have found Reiki years ago in my time of need, and then to be able to use this beautiful healing energy to give my mum what she needed in hers.
Reiki is always from a place of love and with this loving energy I have found Peace. I love helping others along their healing path. My role is to lovingly allow others to overcome their obstacles, to find solutions and space to grow, expand and release.
I dedicate my work to my beautiful mama, and now angel. You inspire me daily.
