Dian had slipped on a patch of ice on her back stairs and taken a bad fall. She’d landed flat on her back across two stairs-one just above the small of her back, one across her upper back. She had been in pain and unable to sleep for several days. I suggested Reiki, and she decided it was worth a try.
I worked with her across distance that evening. As I worked, I could feel a tremendous amount of Reiki energy being pulled into her back, but when I spoke with her the next day, she said she was still in pain. Further, she said she hadn’t felt any energy entering her back during the session. Puzzled, I asked her if she had felt anything at all during the session. She thought a moment, then said that her right leg had twitched quite strongly throughout the session. “Why is that?” I asked. “What’s going on with your leg?”
“I had varicose vein surgery on it last week,” she said. After a moment, she added, “Oh!”
That night, I gave her another Reiki session across distance. This time, I didn’t feel anything in my hands; nevertheless, I knew that the Reiki was working. When I saw Dian the next day, she did a little happy dance. She said that her pain was completely gone and that she had slept through the night for the first time since her fall.
