Goodbye to Stan – Hello home!

Today I had my third and final session with Stan Dawes for reiki. As usual he was bright and breezy and as generous as other days he worked for almost a whole extra hour on me.  I simply cannot believe how quickly two hours goes!

This morning I thought to myself that I would really make an effort with focussing whilst I was recieving reiki as I really find my mind races at times. So I repeatedly said my affirmation, ‘ I lovingly forgive and release myself of the past. I fill my world with joy. I love and accept myself’. I really did find it helped me stay centred.

At the end Stan asked what I experienced throughout the treatment if anything. Well today even I was surprised. At one point Stan had his hands over my eyes and I clearly had my eyes closed anyway but I had a flash of light that got increasingly brighter, a bit like I was looking into the sunshine. I so confused and surprised by it that I wanted to open my eyes to check but it kept pulsating. It happened two or three times throughout the treatment. I experience colour often but not like this. I also had a pain in my right arm almost like a dead arm throughout. I can’t explain why but it did make me think of the theory that the right side of the body represents the masculine and the past. I kept thinking of ‘letting go’.

As before I experienced a lot of heat from Stans hands and today I did not feel any popping in my lung area but I did feel the dragging and pulling sensation in my chest was so much that I almost wanted it to stop. After the treatment I felt so relaxed but like I have had a work out doing lots of press ups.

I asked what Stan says throughout the treatment as I can sometimes hear him whispering. He said he asks the reiki energy to unblock and balance ‘Claire Grant’ and freeze and kill any cancer cells present in the chest, lungs, lymph nodes, breast and anywhere in the body. Well all the way through the treatment I was asking for a sign that it had worked and then the big bright flash of light happened. I can’t express as to how odd it was but how bright it seemed. I initially thought I was going to have a migraine as they start with flashes of light then visuals like geometric patterns but it wasn’t. I hope that was the sign that it’s worked, working, going to work.. any of those.. 🙂 Stan is well worth the visit and I can’t recommend him highly enough to anyone that wants to see him. I want to thank Louise for passing his details to me.

Straight after saying good bye to Stan and his wife I jumped in my motor and drove straight back to the Shire.

Home! I am so pleased to be back. I will be even more pleased when I see the Big Bear, who sadly is out working until later.

Can’t wait for my own bed.


Went to meet Stan the Reiki Man

Today I drove to Romford of all places to meet Stan the Reiki Man! Yes a long way to go in the horrific weather we have been having but well worth it. I was a bit worried of what to expect but upon meeting him I instantly knew it was the right thing to do.

Firstly though driving all that way is a bit of a breakthrough for me as I’m not confident on driving on my own such a distance but what with driving to Farnham every week for acupuncture it has really given me more confidence.

I arrived early and as the appointment was an hour I was hugely surprised that I left over two hours later. After a full consultation I got ready for my treatment in a lovely little summerhouse at the end of his garden.

Overall it is such a relaxing experience. Reiki uses the energy of your body and by laying on hands this energy and good intention is used to heal symptoms as well as balance emotional feelings too. Stan started as a spiritual healer before learning reiki. He showed me the lineage of who taught him as well as certificates. He is very well qualified.

During the treatment I simply relaxed and tried to think clearly and let my mind go where it wanted to. My head was racing with different thoughts and Stan worked a lot round more torso, naturally. I really felt a strong dragging sensation and it felt quite draining particularly in my underarms. I also a feelings of heat, pulsing and popping in my chest. I also had lots of colours and pictures appearing in my mind particularly a tigers face. Apparently that means strength.. So that s a good thing. At the end of it all my body felt like a lead weight.

Having treatments like reiki are so subtle and I felt that I could just hop up and carry on with my day.

Stan is great especially as he is 72 years old. He has been healing since 1984!

After the lovely session I headed to my aunt and uncles for the evening. It was so kind of them to put me up for the night and so brilliant to see them and catch up. The banquet of veggie food was warmly welcomed! Especially since I had been given a choice of food and ate the lot! Ha ha! Also there was my cousin Chris, Cat and her gorgeous son Oscar.

I didn’t go to sleep till about 11.30pm- I don’t sleep well without Pete and I was worrying about the flooding in our area.

Today has been such an exciting and eventful day.. A lot to take in.

More tomorrow though.
