I had the recent joy of being attuned by my Master level students in class. It is such a pleasure to be the receiver. This is especially sweet since I spend so much of my time teaching. Getting the chance to receive Reiki is bliss.
In an attunement to Reiki, a tremendous amount of ki (chi) is channeled into the receiver by the Reiki Master. It basically anchors in the energy into the body and allows the person to have instant access to Reiki. It feels amazing. It is a very profound meditative state that you enter and on the other side you are more centered, more powerful, and more peaceful.
It is funny, then, that I would start coughing in the middle of it all. Funny because the affirmation for coughing is “I am willing to change!” No cough before the attunement, no cough after. Just a bunch of change! As soon as I relaxed and was both willing to receive and to change, the cough disappeared.
Just like magic!
Or maybe more accurately, just like Reiki.
As soon as I was willing to change, I did. As soon as I was willing to receive more than I was giving, the coughing completely gone.
That is simple. That is powerful.
Even more importantly, I was able to fully receive the awesome attunements!
