Although my client cancelled because she was too tired, and didn't want to miss the experience of receiving Reiki by falling asleep, I sent distance Reiki instead to a good friend who regularly sends me Reiki. I can't say that I specifically felt more color awareness yet, although when I tried, I could see more blue around my hands than I used to. I felt strong tingles when sending also, and that is always very powerful.
Today I called the energy often, as the workbook instructed me. I also tried to visualize my aura in the bathroom, and felt that I could see the outline bigger than I had before, and a little easier. So, I'm encouraged, and I will keep working on it. I think bigger developments will come when I get to the second and third levels, but I like it so far.
I am going to do a full Reiki/Chios healing session on my 8-year old tonight. She agreed to my offer, and it will undoubtedly set her up for a good start to her state testing in school which starts tomorrow.
