Reiki As a Travel Companion

My dream revolved around finding another spiritual healer and renting a sprinter van to travel from Washington State to Vermont. And along the way we were going to do ceremonies for the land and give Reiki to the world around us. But it didn’t happen that way.

I never found a woman healer to travel with and split the cost of a sprinter van. This was in early April and that’s not the best month for traveling across the US. But my rental lease on Whidbey Island expired on March 31.

I rented a ReloCube and bought a train ticket to travel the rails from Everett, Washington to Springfield, Mass. However, the day before I began this arduous journey, I hurt my right foot. Not being able to walk well I wondered how on Earth I was going to travel by train across a country to a state where I knew no one and had nowhere to live.

I practiced Reiki on myself for most of the journey. I beamed Reiki to the Rocky Mountains in Montana and to the barren grassy lands in North Dakota and then most of the places the train passed. I beamed Reiki to the birds hoping they would spread the energy in the places where they landed.

When I finally landed in Brattleboro at the Latchis Hotel completely exhausted from my journey, I continued the Reiki flow. And then a week later, I visited a Reiki Master for a healing on my foot (it worked!)

While many of us have this grandiose ideas of the way we will deliver Reiki to the world, we need to push our egos out of the way. Reiki decides how it will be applied and it’s often nowhere near our original vision. However, no matter the way Reiki shows up it always heals us and everyone it touches.

I’ll end with the principle Just for today I give gratitude and in this case, it’s for how Reiki shows up for me. Reiki has eased the way for me on this journey which hasn’t ended yet (it ends when I move into a permanent home). Reiki has helped me face my fears and doubts. It has calmed the anxiety that appears in the middle of the night.

And in the morning when I practice self-Reiki I’m able to stay calm for the day.
