I realize from my brief “Bio” that none of my readers know that I have suffered from a lung condition for many years. My left lung was collapsed and my pulmonologists had to perform a bronchscopy to find if there was any cancer or other disease process going on. Thank goodness, no cancer. Over the years I had regular check ups, x-rays, and many breathing tests. I had always been a little depressed about my situation. I felt having one lung limited me in so much of what I was capable of doing.
When I started studying reiki, I remembered my reiki master (Timothy Stuetz) worked on my lung during one of our sessions. After that, every evening (almost) I would reiki myself putting my hand over my left collapsed lung, hoping to transfer energy into it even though medical doctors said it wasn’t possible. I know I was working with animals but in between I had to take care of myself too. Here is where my story takes a remarkable, interesting and fabulous twist! I woke up this morning with this persistent cough I have had all week. My girlfriend Ming came over and heard me wheezing, forget my husband, she threw me into the car to take me to the hospital. That was it. So we spent Sunday morning in an ER and as the heavens would have it, they took us in immediately.
My young doctor came in to evaluate me. He picked up his stethoscope listening to my chest. I explained to him not to bother listening to the left side due to it being collapsed. He said he heard something on that side and that if it wasn’t the left lung it was the reverberation from the right. After he walked out of the room, Ming and I thought he may not know that much. But we were here. The respiratory tech appears with a one hour breathing treatment but not before the x-ray tech shows up to take me to x-ray. I tell Ming to go get a bite to eat. I also explain to the x-ray tech after he does the front view he doesn’t need to turn me to the left because I have no lung there. The tech says, I’m only a tech, but I can tell you, I see two lungs! So, he makes me come and look at it myself. Of course, I don’t believe what I am seeing. I go back to my bad and start my breathing treatment. Ming returns and we await the doctor’s re-evaluation. The doctor comes back and informs me I have 2 functioning working lungs. I ask him to repeat this after we pick Ming up off the floor. I did not tell Ming previously what the tech had said because I wanted to hear it AGAIN from the doctor this time. I told him it wasn’t possible because all the other doctors had said my lung would never re-inflate.
He called it a miracle. We call it Reiki.
