Article by Angie Webster
Today, the fact that I am typing this article is a miracle. A miracle granted through the healing tools offered to us by the Universe. Last night, as I was making our evening meal, I very badly burned my left index finger. I was sure I would not be able to write today, yet here I am, writing my second article of the day!
I received the burn when I reached into a hot oven to retrieve a casserole dish that had been baking for 20 minutes. I thought my hand was covered by the hot pad, but it was exposed and I grabbed the dish with my bare fingers before I realized it. After letting out a few exclamations and curses, I placed my hand over the burn and began to channel Reiki to it. The finger had almost immediately swollen to three or four times its size, to the point that I could not bend it at the first two knuckles. It was very red and had a large blister across the entire finger pad.
I will admit that giving Reiki to the finger increased the burning, as the healing energy flowed and worked with the injured flesh, but I knew it would help, so I continued. As I was doing this, I was also shifting into calmer thinking, partly through intention, and partly because Reiki was helping me to settle the startle energy that came with burning my hand. My confidence that Reiki would prevent the burn from being as bad as it could be helped me to have more peace. I knew it would help in the best way possible and I simply rested with that and became calm.
After a few minutes, I stopped the Reiki treatment for a moment and applied calendula cream to the burn. This cream is made from a flower that is very useful with burns, cuts, scrapes and rashes, as well as sunburn. Right after I applied the cream, I placed a black tourmaline crystal over the burn. This stone magnetizes harmful or negative energy out of the body or the aura. As soon as I placed it over the burn, I could feel the heat being sucked out of it. I allowed it to do this for two or three minutes.
After using the black tourmaline, I could visually see that the redness was decreased and the blistered area had shrunk. This was only 5-10 minutes after the burn, and after using only Reiki, calendula and black tourmaline! Instead of the redness, swelling and blistering increasing, as usually happens in the 15-20 minutes following a burn, it was decreasing dramatically! Though it still hurt a great deal, I could clearly see it was healing, and rapidly. It made sense to me that it might hurt very badly for something to heal as rapidly as my finger was. The skin was actually repairing and renewing at an extremely high speed. I knew the pain would ease as the skin finished repairing.
Seeing that the healing was working, I sat down to apply more Reiki. In total, I applied Reiki to the finger for about 10 more minutes. For the last five minutes of that, I held the black tourmaline over the burn as I channeled Reiki, asking that it continues to pull out as much of the injury as it could. I showed the burn to my husband after I was done and he couldn’t believe it! There was barely a blister left. You could still clearly see where the fingerprints had been burned off of my finger, as the area was smooth and shiny, but only a tiny line was still blistered. By the time we went to bed, the redness and swelling were nearly gone, as well. I had almost no pain by then.
When I woke up this morning, I was awake and actively using my hand for almost an hour before I remembered I had burned it so severely last night. The pain was completely gone and I had to look very closely to see any sign of injury remaining. Even the smoothness where the fingerprints were burned away is already beginning to heal, regenerating new fingerprints!
Today I am writing, as usual, thanks to Reiki and the herbs and stones offered to us as healing gifts from the Universe. We can heal, in the greatest and highest good, if we believe and make use of what we have at our disposal.
