It all started with my desire to give a special Christmas gift to my niece and nephew, who are two and four respectively. I saw the ad for the Hallmark recording storybook "The Night Before Christmas" and instantly knew this was a great idea. Due to circumstances I had been unable to travel to visit them in person. Aunt Rose was simply a voice on the phone or perhaps a photograph. But with the storybook their Aunt Rose could read them her much loved Christmas classic from 1823 at bedtime, and perhaps they could have wonderful dreams filled with promises of Santa's visit on Christmas Eve.
Yesterday I received this email in reply, “Thanks so much for your help in documenting Eli. Eli ended up having a rough evening. As the night wore on, we witnessed a couple of rather serious coughing sessions. Eli then returned to sea only to make his way up the next set of stairs to the east. Eli visited several of the old steps that evening and the last time we saw Eli his coughing sessions appeared to be growing worse. We are on the look out for him still and we are all hoping for the best.”
So, it seems that Eli, as he appears to have been named, did indeed have need of Reiki personally. Wishing him well I have sent some more Reiki to him and for the situation. Not knowing when he might have need of it, I sent the Reiki back in time (Reiki Level II teaches that energy is not bounded by time and space). In accordance with the Reiki concept that the energy is always offered for the highest good of the recipient, letting go of attachment to outcome, the intention included the possibility of the energy being needed for assistance during the dying process.
Finally, I built him a Bridge of Light to help ease his passage into Spirit. Whether he will cross this week, or in the distant future, is now between the universe, Reiki and Eli.
