"It was unexpected. Or rather, I expected nothing. At the time Daniela was new to energy healing. I knew nothing about it at all. But I'm an open minded person, and I gladly allowed myself to be the subject of experimentation.
My first reiki session was truly life changing, and eye opening. And I think my lack of knowledge and expectation played a huge roll in the experience I'm about to share with you.
Often when someone has too much expectation, they are easily disappointed in the result, or worse still, they end up blocking the result altogether.
My openness allowed the reiki energy to follow through me to the max!
I went from "go ahead and do this," to "oh my god, what is that? What is happening? It's like my whole body is vibrating, its warm, relaxing, it's like, electricity... no, that's too aggressive, it's like a tingling. It's like my whole body is tingling. WOW!"
The session took more than 1 hour. It was deeply relaxing for me. And it was exciting to experience something like this for the first time.
Afterwards, I'm sitting beside Daniela, giggling like a silly school boy.
I felt like something ugly and stifling had been released from inside of me.
Later I learned that this is called a blockage. At first the release came in the form of laughter, pure childlike laughter. Then my legs felt like spaghetti. They had no hold, and I could hardly get up and walk.
I guess this is why they say you should not drive after a session.
But it wasn't over. The release of my blockages started to get nasty.
Soon I got a bad headache that lasted for hours. I felt a bit dizzy, and then nauseous.
The funny thing is that I didn't mind it. I knew the cause was the reiki energy, which is for my highest wellbeing. And Daniela explained that this can be a normal reaction as my energies were realigning.
I went from, "Reiki? What's that? A session? Sure, go ahead," to "This is amazing! I want more, I want to know more!"
It was life changing!
Now I did not go down the spiritual path immediately, and so intensely, as did Daniela back then; but now, I practice reiki every single day.
I love it."
