What can one give to someone who has very little or nothing? The answer is plenty. You can give them so much …… food, clothing, shelter, money…… But what could you give them that would never finish, always be there, give them good health, heal them when sick, and heal their loved ones and friends too? The only thing that meets these criteria … You guessed right is … empowering them with healing energy!
This then is the mission of Lotus Healing Seva Group, to share our Love and Light with the poor, the poorer and the poorest in our society. On 22nd July, the children of Pamela’s Paradise in the Kibera slums of Nairobi were the recipients of this sharing. Forty seven children between the ages of 3 and 17 came all excited in the morning for their training in Reiki. They were accompanied by 7 equally excited adults! The event took place in a Church hall in Kibera.
After an informative introduction to Reiki by Mamta, they were attuned to Reiki Level 1, and taught how to heal themselves. This was followed by a filling lunch and then how to heal others. Finally, before leaving, they were given cakes and milk, and some throat lozenges that had been kindly donated by Beta Health Care.
And so ended another Reiki camp for LHSG in Nairobi, Kenya. One more chance for us to do seva and bring Light and Love to people. As at the end of every seva, we enjoyed the satisfaction of giving, for which we are always grateful to the Universe. But wait! We got even more. We got to witness the sparkle in the little kids’ eyes, the joy in their smiles as they marveled at the new found energy in their hands, the earnestness with which they did Reiki on themselves and on each other….
At the end of the camp, we wondered … who had given whom? … who had enriched whom? …… For sure there were many many happy and grateful hearts that day!
The members who were privileged to do this seva were Raj, Mamta, Monica, Punita, Anuradha, Brit, Pratima, Bubbles, Shariffa and myself. this brings to 27, the number of Reiki camps we have carried out in Kenya in which 868 people have benefited.
