Today, 27th February 2020, Anuradha and I conducted the Reiki level 1 camp at Faraja. There were 16 people in total, out of which 4 were patients and the rest were Faraja volunteers. Introduction to Reiki, the chakras and then the attunement went very smoothly. As the self-healing session started, slowly but surely everyone started feeling Reiki flowing in their hands. All were very attentive and patiently went through each chakra. We could see quite a few of them feeling very relaxed and on the verge of dozing off. After self-healing we had a short 20 mins break. Two of the patients had to go for radio therapy and didn’t return. With everyone feeling energised, we started partner healing with enthusiasm. The whole group were very willing and carried out partner healing very well. Then Anuradha went through the benefits of Reiki meticulously. After going through the principles of Reiki, answering any more questions, we had the group picture taken. Before leaving I informed the group of the Reiki Level 2 date next month and got positive feedback on attending it. Thank you Anuradha for your irreplaceable assistance and gratitude always for this successful Reiki camp

Today we had the Level 1 Reiki Camp for the Hawkers Market Girls Centre. Laveena and I had 8 new girls. All extremely enthusiastic about this new concept of healing called Reiki.

We started at 9.30 and just with the introduction the girls got excited. Soon after the introduction I taught them the chakras. There was no surprise as to how fast they picked them up. Attunement followed, which in turned led to self-healing. They all were doing it perfectly well.

Lunch was at 12.15pm with LHSG sponsored vegetable burgers, chapati and milk. They all enjoyed this treat and as it turned out the chapatis were the most popular.

The afternoon started with partner healing where the girls receiving Reiki were so relaxed that they actually fell asleep. This showed me that they had learnt it well.

We ended with giving them certificates and cakes and milk. I personally feel that these girls are going to be excellent healers!

Today we had our Reiki level one camp for the children of Mukuru Outreach Kenya Academy.

We had a total of 58 children and 6 teachers. We started with the history of Reiki and moved on to the chakras. The children picked up every position & name of chakras within minutes. This was followed by attunement. After that, the children did self-healing with full dedication.

Finally it was lunch….fun for all, as the plates were filled with chips, kidney beans in gravy, rice cooked with vegetables and delicious puri’s. This was so palatable that the half an hour’s lunch break felt short.

After lunch we started partner healing where there was a peaceful atmosphere. As Reiki flowed through the healers hands the healee felt relaxed. This was such a satisfying & gratifying feeling for me, as I knew at this moment we have more Reiki healers in this world.

These proud new healers were given certificates in the end. As we ended the session LHSG gave them milk and biscuits to go home with.

It was a lovely experience teaching these beautiful souls and am ever so grateful to my sisters who accompanied me today. Without Shalini, Anju, Neena, Sonal, and Lata today Reiki seva camp would not have been possible.

Love and Light

LHSG 14th Anniversary Celebrations Seva No. 9

Continuing our 14th Annversary celebrations, I am happy to announce that on 24th January 2020, we expanded into Abu Dhabi, thanks to our UAE Head, Kirtikala Kamdar our UAE member Pooja Tiwari. They conducted a Reiki Level Training Camp. 10 new Reiki Healers were created that day!

Do read on for Kirtikala’s account and please watch the slide show.

Love and Light!

Our 1st Reiki level 1 free (on donation) in Abudhabi, UAE was held on January 24th, 2020. I, Kirtikala Kamdar, taught them and Pooja Tiwari, who came from Dubai to Abudhabi at my residence, was there to help me out in every possible way. We had 11 ladies who attended it.

All those who came were so eager to learn. They were quick learners. They also had so many questions and it was good to see their 100% participation. Teaching them was amazing and with each class I myself learn something from people because they share their experiences.

One of them was removing her jewellery and keeping aside and upon asking why she did this she replied that she attended a Reiki class elsewhere before. there they told them not to wear any metal during healing. And I told her it’s a wrong concept as Reiki has it’s own wisdom. That is the beauty of Usui Reiki that we do not have any rules and regulations.

There are so many mis-conceptions about Reiki among people. My answer to her and others was to be an empty box and gather the knowledge given on that day. Its was an amazing class. Thank you dear all for being so attentive.

I collected Dirhams 580 and since I am in India I shall be doing donations here.

I will give to that lady who takes care of dogs. Got to know about an orphanage so will donate some money for education there.
