An Experience of Angels in Reiki

A few years ago when I was still a student at the School of Intuition & Healing, I volunteered to receive healing from one of our teachers during class. As part of our training, we were taught to ask for permission to touch any part of the client's body (usually shoulders and feet), and the teacher included this in the demo. The rest of the session would involve healing and clearing my Aura and Chakras on an energetic level, without any physical touch. Moments later, I was shocked to feel a hand come down on my stomach. I thought it so odd that she touched me without giving me a warning, that I opened my eyes to see what was happening. To my surprise, her hand was a foot above my stomach - no touch - but I could still feel it on my skin. Our teacher asked if everything was OK and when explained myself, the class laughed at my confusion LOL

This week, I had a similar experience with angels!

A client booked a healing session, and I decided to give him a full Reiki session because he was very stressed. Standard Reiki sessions can last 60-90 minutes, and they involve moving through 18 hand positions so that every last cell in the body is directly infused with a bit of Reiki healing. Receiving a full session is just wonderful - if at times a bit slow for the Reiki practitioner as there is so much to cover. 

For the most part, I have been working intuitively, beginning the sessions with my hands on the client's shoulders where I can connect with their energy to get a sense of what they need, before moving from one place to the next based on my intuitive guidance. I hadn't followed the A,B,C's since I finished my Reiki Master training four years ago. For some reason, I felt this client would benefit from the full session. 

The angels had another plan...

I began at the shoulders as usual then moved to the back of his head, placing my hands over the Crown Chakra (Hand Position #1). My angels insisted that I go to the feet instead and ground him - grounding helps us release stress and often that will be my second port of call, during a healing session. They gave me the message by drawing my attention to his feet, they sent whispers, everything they could but I planted myself firmly where I was instead. Often I will stand on one side of the client's Aura during a session and ask the angels and guides that I work with to help me create a circle at the other end. 

I didn't ask them to stand at his feet but felt like they were there. This helps us create a lovely space healing space - if you happen to be working with another healer you can do it physically too. After 45 minutes I had gone through all the hand positions - top to bottom - grounding the client bit by bit. I ended the session with 15 minutes of pure grounding before going back to his shoulders to shield his energy field. 

Did the client notice????

When the session was done, I asked how he felt. He mentioned that at one point he felt my hands on his ankles, quite strongly, but that he opened his eyes and saw me standing behind his head. What had happened there????

I asked him when this happened - just as the session was starting. I couldn't keep myself from laughing and explained that often during a session I will stand on one side of the body, with Archangel Raphael at the other end. This time it wasn't a coordinated effort. However, the angels went to his feet because I was insistent on following the Reiki hand positions one by one. It always makes me smile when something like this happens because often, I have the feeling that I would need to be in two places at the same time and that just is not possible.

Share your thoughts below! =)

Let me know if you have had a similar experience - I believe it may be quite common. It is also a nice way to validate that angels and guides do exist. The experience had more significance for me given my reluctance to move to the feet from the beginning.
