Some mornings I wake up with Reiki energy already turned on. It feels like those drawings of Chinese meridians, the paths Asians ‘see’, to map accupuncture and accupresssure points. The experience is like a low steady hum of electricity, though not just along one line, but multiple lines down the arm, into the hand and fingers. There is sometimes a pulsing feeling. It fills the entire body, with the feet and arms being what I’m usually most aware of. Occasionally, there is enough energy movement that it feels like my arms and my entire self are larger, thicker. As though my lower arm and wrist are 6 inches thick.
I don’t have this experience when I do Reiki on myself and others consciously during the day, though it does sometimes occur during meditation.
My musing tells me I am probably doing Reiki during my sleep, perhaps dreaming of healing, or with my Higher Self directing healing energy toward family, friends, the planet, unknown others during a crisis.
Sleeping and dreaming are such a mysterious and beautiful time, aren’t they?
