After my post last week, Rene sent me this story about receiving Big Ben's healing energy.
I was in a car wreck this past Monday, a hit & run. I banged my head pretty bad.
My son Brett (11 ) to whom I've given Reiki I & II was running energy on me while we were waiting for the police and ambulance to show.
After 20 minutes I felt somewhat better. We finally went home and I went to bed.
I've had a concussion before and decided that i would be fine with more energy work.
My son worked on me a second time the next day and almost all the pain went away.
Then the following day, I was out grooming Big Ben. Ben's a 19 yr. old rescue horse that I'm fostering. I noticed his back leg was stiff and one of his joints needed attention. I spent about 15 minutes working on him When the pain dispersed and the energy broke, I walked around and gave him a kiss on his noise telling him how much I loved him and how honored I was that he was with me.
Now Ben's over 16 hands and when I groom him, I don't even have to tie him up he just stand there soaking up the TLC. This big boy kept putting his noise on my forehead and i finally told him "yes it hurts".
He gently put his muzzle on top of my head and kept it there for about 2 minutes. It felt very different than when a person runs energy on you. It didn't have the peaks nor static. It was very smooth and soft energy almost a pinkish is hue. I was so honored that he was willing to share energy with me. I am so blessed to have his company.
I've cared for many horses over the years, but this one's heart is filled with so much gratitude. He was skin & bones a few months back on his way to the auction.
I've never met a more loving, kind, majestic soul! When I braided him with bows, he laughed at me and said lady come on now ....stop with the bows!!!
This story left me in tears. Many of us find ourselves nose to nose with horses, sharing the breath. Imagine, how often, these moments bring us healing as well.
