Yesterday I went for a Reiki 1 class, and received my first attunement. The class itself was amazingly interesting, and the attunement was beyond what I have the ability to articulate. I actually saw colors!
There was a woman in the class whose energy was so powerful she actually seemed to radiate. She talked a bit about her avoidance of reiki, something to which I can definitely relate. The first time I became curious about learning to use the energy was at least five years ago. I've never understood it, but have always felt drawn to it.
I crave more instruction and information, but I think I am going to postpone Level 2 for awhile to see how this first attunement unfolds.
