One of the things I’m asked for often as a foti is medicine. When somebody isn’t feeling well, they assume that I have the cure. I count myself blessed that I’m usually able to help.
The complaint I hear most often is pain in the belly. Sometimes, it’s exhibited as a small pain where the person has a more subdued energy than normal. Other times, the sufferer is lying down in too much pain to do much of anything else. When the case is the former, I mix up some white clay that was gifted to me by a girlfriend in California. One spoonful of clay mixed with water followed by two more cups of water, and my patient is usually feeling better right away. For more severe stomach pain, I mix up some water with a spoonful of activated charcoal, gifted to me by another friend in California. For extremely severe pain, I’ll follow up the natural medicine with a Reiki healing session. I’m lucky to have happy patients each time.
I’ve offered several Reiki sessions here in Guinea for a variety of reasons. Sometimes for stomach upset, others for fever, and other times for life issues compounded by energetic blocks in the chakras. Even though Africans here haven’t heard of chakras or Reiki before, they’ve been extremely receptive to the healing. I’ve received feedback that they’re able to feel the energetics of the treatment, have a sense of calm afterwards, and feel relief for the symptoms that led to me offering a treatment.
