Day 5, 25/11/09: Reiki - Nepal

Up at 5am to take the short walk to watch the glorious Nagakot sunrise; the view itself was quite hazy but the minute the little golden Sun popped up from behind the hillock on the far horizon it was awesome. In a moment of gentle warmth it shone with vigour, reflecting its amber glow onto the nearby Himalayan Peaks; awakening them one by one. My thoughts were once again on those out climbing; that moment when the dark, bitter cold changes in the blink of an eye to an indescribable warmth.

Today I carried out a Reiki treatment on Chris; it was amazing! As my hands moved across her aura centring on the chakras I began to feel a rhythm; at the solar plexus I noticed that both our breathing was in perfect & absolute harmony. With my intention to emit healing energy in place I felt a heat burning in my palms; in all honesty I didn't think I'd actually done anything and I was once again aware of a creeping doubt, 'who am I to think I can do this'.

When I finished though I looked back at Chris & she was completely & utterly relaxed; almost asleep - had I really been able to do that? She took time to arouse; drinking plenty of water as she did then over dinner she began to feedback her experience of receiving Reiki from me. As she was talking everything felt so genuine; I had seen with my own eyes how relaxed she'd been with me and now hearing her talk about it also was incredible; tears welled up in my eyes; I just found the whole experience so utterly humbling; the fact that 'I really had been able to share that'.

After lunch we were doing body scans; feeling & acknowledging the density changes between the physical & emotional auras; I'm amazed but I really could feel it! Really strange because if I cognitively think about it then there's absolutely no explanation or reasoning I can give myself but on an intuitive level I did feel it. When Suzy scanned my body she described feeling like there was a magnet pulling her further in; from my experience it was similar only I felt like I was literally pushing myself down on the couch to stop myself floating upward - really quite a bizarre sensation; I also felt like, at any given moment my left leg was going to flick out in a reflex response. This energy work is really, really fascinating; weird but fascinating none-the-less!

If I wasn't already feeling spaced out enough; I went for a Shirodhara treatment today. Now Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda medicine that involves gently pouring liquids (oils specially blended to suit your dosha) over the forehead, or more specifically the third eye. Well what can I say, the treatment basically began with a pretty intense body massage; then a scalp massage. As he was massaging my head/scalp he asked, 'is this firm enough?' I said, 'Yes, absolutely fine'; at which point he then started pulling and yanking my hair; jeez my eyes even started watering! The oil drum was positioned above my head and I then lay back as the oil dripped and dripped and dripped...Wow, talk about psychedelic; the colours that were flashing in my third eye were immense; an array of colours; the treatment felt so warm; so relaxing; so very comforting. As the oil ran back over my head through my hair he began to massage my legs and feet. Well, ouch, ouch, ouch! It was certainly a deep massage and at times it almost felt a little too uncomfortable to bear, but after the treatment had finished I felt amazing! My legs felt incredible; though admittedly I was also feeling completely and utterly spaced out; I guess I was unquestionably relaxed like never before!
