Yesterday I was blessed to be able to share Reiki with a group of friends. The party had been planned for quite a while, but the week ended with a broke-down car that needed fixing, so the hostess had to both pick me up and drop me off after the party. (Thanks Susan!) While my husband stayed home fixing the car, I was telling my Reiki story, and Susan shared hers as well.
After briefly discussing what Reiki is, and the origins of Reiki, I offered to give Reiki to anyone who wanted to experience it. What happened was that I gave spot Reiki treatments to areas where people were experiencing pain or stiffness. There were headaches, a sprained wrist, sore calves, back aches, bruised elbows, and I gave them all Reiki while others mingled waiting for their turn. I know it shouldn’t surprise me, but everyone told me that their pain was greatly reduced or gone altogether after a few minutes of Reiki! That even these short treatments had a dramatic effect is a testament to the power of Reiki, and I feel so honored that I was able to share it with them all.
The bottom line is that Reiki works, plain and simple. My hostess will be getting a free Reiki session from me as a Thank You gift, and one of the party-goers is interested in studying Reiki as well. The party was a complete success and a lot of fun for me and everyone else. It’s a wonderful, relaxing way to share Reiki with friends, and I hope to do another party soon.

Great idea, Beth!
Having a Reiki awareness party (or whatever you officially called it) was a great way to get the word out that you’re ready for clients. I bet it will also help generate interest in your upcoming class.
I take my Reiki ART and Master Teacher level this weekend, and I appreciate the inspiration I receive from reading your blog, and your comments on mine.
I had come up with a nifty name called “Mystic Spirit Party” and had a page on my website about it and everything. But the hostess just called it a Reiki party, because where I live, many people have heard of Reiki in one way or another. It was a great blessing, and reminded me of the power of Reiki to heal. I wonder if the day will ever come when I’m not pleasantly surprised when somebody does feel better after Reiki.
Because it’s not technique oriented, and all I have to do is ask where it hurts and put my hands there, it seems too good to be true. But it is true, it does work, and I just want to keep sharing Reiki all the time.
