It freaked me out. I had never felt this way before and shared what I was feeling. (As I look back, it was probably more like I was complaining and thinking it was her fault). She left the room, came back, and said, "is that better"? It was. Now there were only 3 Spiritual Beings in the room and the operating theater was gone.
This experienced encouraged me to learn more about Chinese Medicine and then I ended up learning about Qigong, and even learning to give Qigong medical treatments. My first acupuncture treatment ended up being a major turning point in my life, and it was as if the crowd of observers had recognized this as one of those moments, before I had.
Recently I was preparing to give one of my clients a Qigong treatment, and I felt like we were surrounded by hundreds of Beings in an operating room theater! But THIS time, I knew to NOT be afraid - it was because THIS was one of those monumental moments when a life is about to change. The crowd was here to witness and participate in someones life-changing moments.
I told my client, who does Reiki treatments, that I could feel (and see) hundreds of Beings in the room with us - all who want to observe her treatment. She was OK with having them stay (she is much wiser than I). But THEN I felt the presence of a SPECIAL person in the room with us - another Spiritual Being - whose name is Makua. This Being was her Reiki Master, a former Shaman from Hawaii, who is now deceased. He was here to participate in her Qigong treatment.
I began her Qigong treatment, but it was NOT like any other treatment I had ever given. Because Makua was participating in the treatment, and guiding me on some of the activities, it included what I assume to be some Reiki. But then I realized this was an initiation! I could see and feel a circle of souls around the treatment table and they were chanting and blowing breaths of energy toward my client (who was laying face up, with her eyes closed, on the treatment table). In the distance, I could also hear drumming. It was as if she was being inititated into a new level for her Reiki practice.
At the end of the initiation, my client was temporariliy "out of her body" so I waited for her soul to return. Then, she took a big breath and opened her eyes. She was back.
This experience was a rather amazing event. It helped me realize that an initiation can even happen and be directed from the other side. Who knew?!
