I've never thought of myself as being very good at Reiki. Sure, I've done classes and attunements for I and II. Sure, I've practiced - on me, on Acorn, and even on Leaf. I've practiced on a few other friends, but they haven't been impressed. I've done energy work for a long time though - longer than I've known that Reiki existed - and it's always been useful, at least for me.
I've been doing a lot of the more generic sorts of energy work on myself lately - holding space for a very very boring high risk pregnancy takes work, and it helps a little with things like blood pressure and hip pain and muscle aches and such.
With Acorn, I always saw him as a glowing green ball. No matter how big he got, that's what he looked like.
With Leaf....it's different. Last night, I saw Leaf's chakras, clear as day - like a little string of glowing colored pearls. It surprised me, because it's so different from my previous experience. I'm not really sure what to make of it.
Ah well. Just something I noticed.
