One morning, in the midst of teaching my yoga class to a group of my regular students, one of my long time student suddenly stopped short of any movement. She had a palm on her right knee and her face was contorted in pain. She looked at me for help, as not being able to even take a step. Rushing to her side with a chair for her to sit on, I continued teaching my class verbally. She held her knee, almost afraid to move it. I knelt beside her and after taking permission from her, I placed both my palms on her painful knee. Sitting there giving Reiki to her knee, I observed and continued to teach my class. My palms became v. tingly and hot. She started to relax and even closed her eyes on and off.
By the end of the class, approximately 40 minutes, I helped her to stand up. With no attachment to any expectations in my mind, I realized instantly that she did not need my help. She was overjoyed to stand up and walk out of the room with no pain whatsoever. She was bewildered and called it a MIRACLE.
This experience was enough to bring her back for several Reiki sessions with me. She recently took a Reiki First Degree class also. Besides practicing self treatment, she is also involved in helping others!
