Since beginning my Reiki private practice, I have been performing self Reiki to make sure that I incorporate self care into my practice. Usui Mikao, the founder of Reiki died of a stroke four years after his awakening on Mt. Kurama which manifested his ability to heal with his hands. Subsequently, he created the current day, Reiki practice and taught it to many students, as well as healing four or five clients at the same time during these four years. However, I believed that he was not diligent in self care that may have resulted in his death through a stroke. His story is a life lesson for all Reiki practitioners.
I have been providing Reiki therapy for my twin flame who has the same emotional and physical issues as me. Therefore, after treating him, I would treat myself on the same issues. Since performing self Reiki, many fears and buried emotions have come to the surface. I have been experiencing nightmares regularly, disrupting my sleep nightly. They deal mainly with self doubt, fears of failure, and fears of the unknown. In these dreams, I do not feel at peace, and feel agitated, and unsettled.
