This is the second quarter that I’ve taught a course on Intuition at Olli – the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, at the University of Cincinnati. OLLI is the part of Communiversity for senior citizens. The class is called Developing Your Intuition – An Overview of the Intuitive Arts.
My favorite day of the 7 or 8 classes is the day I talk about Reiki. And since you know me, you know I can’t just talk about Reiki. I have to have my hands on somebody as I’m talking. So last Thursday I worked my way around the twelve students, working on each one as I talked, answered questions, asked people what they were feeling as I worked on them, told them what I was perceiving as the healing energy perked them up one by one.
Three of the students were from the last class, so they were excited and happy to get a Reiki tune up. The former surgeon hadn’t had any further problems with the knee we worked on in the spring, but was happy to have me check it out. And we worked on his back a bit as well. Others ran the range from being sceptical to having never heard of Reiki to being ready to be well. And, of course, being willing to be well is the best thing to bring to a Reiki class.
The group also ran the range from being fine to having serious health challenges. So Prescription for Nutritional Healing and Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body were also passed around, bringing lots of new ideas into the mix. it is such a joy to see people waking up to possibilities they hadn’t considered before. And to see them relax and get both calmer and happier. In the meantime, as I’m doing Reiki, I’m also getting a hit of that great healing energy. What could be better?!
