Threshold Reiki Experience -
is one of a series where I share a personal experience or anecdote related
to my Reiki work. The pages are also intended to give you some "food
for thought" and add to your overall Reiki knowledge base.
the experience has been my own, I feel that you should decide for yourself
how much (if any) of the content has any usefulness to your own Reiki work.
must admit that there were times when I and Reiki Master friends of
mine would seem to go to the limit to explore energy work, and it's effects on
One time in the spring of 2000 comes to mind. It was the
year following Mr. Doi's visit to Vancouver during which my friends
(Andy, Tom, Yukio and Yuko) and I held the first of several
international conferences for Mr. Hiroshi Doi and others. During
that weekend he told us about the original URR Gakkai attunement
methods, what he called reiju, and while he was not permitted to share
the current version, he did teach us one he had made up with some of his
friends, what he liked to call Gendai Reiju.
That spring Tom Rigler was back in town to visit and staying
at a B and B across teh street from my place. So I invited a
couple of my other master students who had
attended the URRI 1999 conference - Jaime and Warren - to come over and
meet with Tom and I. The 4
of us decided we would practice Gendai Reiju on each other. We
paired off with Tom and Jaime working together while Warren would work
with me. Warren hadn't practiced this reiju very much so while I was
sitting quietly with my eyes closed, I could hear Tom reminding Warren of
the method for the reiju. Then everything was very quiet. Suddenly I felt an immense
pressure above and around my head. I opened my eyes and found
that the other 3 were each giving me the reiju at the same time, one on
each side and one in front. So I smiled to myself and closed my
eyes and just received.
However, when they were finished and the pressure was gone, I discovered that I could not
move a muscle. I told them this and they were quite surprised. it took me a couple
minutes before I finally could move. Afterwards the guys
thought this was great fun so we had to do the same thing for each of
us. It was just amazing to have so much energy being presented at
one time. Each of us found we had little ability to move right after
Then I though I would have some more fun with them and said to them
"Watch this." I went into the kitchen and asked Nadya to
join us. She agreed and so I told her what we wanted to do.
She said was agreeable to this experiement. I had her sit in the chair, and then all 4
of us gave her Gendai Reiju at the same time, one on each side of her. Afterwards, Nadya
opened her eyes, smiled, said that it had felt nice, then thanked us and got up and went back
into the kitchen.
The other guys were just shocked at this. They couldn't believe their
eyes, that she could easily handle so much energy and then get right
up. So I explained to them how it was in 1995 when I used
to channel for Nadya that I had first learned over her ability with
energy. One day while
doing this with her, another of my guides told me in my mind to reach
around and feel
Nadya's natural energy. I did so even as I channeled for her, and
discovered she had huge natural earth energy with very strong grounding
abilities. They said that Nadya
was like a huge sponge when it came to acquiring and holding energies,
and that at that time I was no where near being able to fill all that
ability, although it would come later on. They then wanted me to
reach around her and copy her grounding abilities to assist me in
holding more energies.
And that day in 2000, Nadya innocently proved this to my 3 friends and I.
