I have been a Reiki healer for a number of years. Usually, I worked on clients on my table, laying on hands and helping their bodies access their own healing.
Lyone was different. He was a three-year old boy whose father had searched far and wide looking for a healing for his son who had stage four brain cancer .Lyone’s dad had been through all that standard medicine had to offer. His son had had chemo, radiation and had a shunt put into his head. I offered Reiki, but this time Lyone was in Japan, and I was in the US. Kenny, Lyone’s dad would put him on the webcam and I would bring my hands up to the screen. I was always amazed how Lyone turned his head to meet my hands.
One Christmas Eve, I got a frantic message from Kenny. Lyone’s tumor had herniated. He was not eating, speaking or walking. Things did not look good. I thought dear God, please do not take this boy on Christmas, and began to send Reiki and put a call out to a prayer/healing chain.
Lyone’s parents got their Christmas miracle. Within days tremendous progress was seen. Lyone began to speak, then to sing! within a couple more days Lyone was doing something he hadn’t done in weeks, he began to walk.
Lyone had a few more months of a well loved life. He died only when the tumor became bigger than his brain. He died pain-free, and singing.
Lyone is one of the reasons I am so passionate about holistic practices. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself. We are only in the infancy of understanding all the mechanisms that contribute to our well-being.
Let us share with each other the gifts that help us heal, physically, mentally and spiritually.
