I Attuned My Grandma to Reiki!

My grandma is 87 years old, though she's really one of those "87 years-young" people. She drives a red sports car, and takes courses, volunteers daily at a Senior Center near her house - walks there - bakes cookies, makes dolls and beaded necklaces, and comes for dinner every Friday night. She's great.

I've given her Reiki a few times, and she's liked it and said it helped her. She has recently developed an infection in one leg, and she is taking antibiotics for it. I gave her Reiki a few times, which did help. Yesterday she came over and I attuned her to Reiki and taught her how to call in the energy, and some hand positions for giving herself Reiki treatments. I told her to practice and the sensations would get stronger.

I have to admit that my attunement was a little awkward because I had to refer to my manual several times; it's been a while since I've done any. I realized that I'd better brush up because I'm going to be teaching a Reiki class next month! I know it worked, though, because it's the intention that passes on the ability to channel the energy, even if the procedure isn't perfect.

I'm also having some mild detox symptoms, either from doing the attunement or from my most recent Kundalini Reiki attunement. Strange moments of overwhelming emotion, a little gastric discomfort, and some weird tingles in my legs. Not a problem because I recognize them for what they are, and they'll pass soon.

I thought for a second about attuning Grandma to Kundalini Reiki, because the attunement process is so absolutely simple, but at the same time, I do believe that it's best to start with the basic Usui Reiki Ryoho to get a feel for channeling the energy. I just want to do the most basic, pure original form for her because I think it will be best for Grandma at this point.

Wow - my grandma is 87 and now she can channel Reiki.
Go, Grandma.

Oh that is so cool! What a wonderful thing to share with your Grandmother, I'm sure she will make the most of her new Reiki connection just as she does with the rest of her life. That's a great story! Thank you so much for sharing it.

Blessings to You and Your Grandma,
Beth the Reiki Artist

Hi Beth!
Thanks for the comment! My Gram is remarkable and she has reported that the Reiki she's been doing on herself has been very helpful so far.
Peace,
Alice
