What is Reiki How I got into Reiki (2) -My first encounter with Reiki

**Please read my previous post "How I got into Reiki (1). Beginning of my Reiki Journey" before this post.

My biggest priority for choosing an apartment used to be its rent and location. If it was a reasonable price, in a convenient location, and I had a space to sleep in, it was OK for me. I was busy most of the time anyway.
But this time, my inner voice told me that I shouldn't compromise until I find the one I really love, and I somehow followed it.
I checked more than 10 apartments. Most of the apartments were quite nice that I would have taken one of them easily if I were like before, but this time, I always felt like something was still missing.

One day, I finally found a place I really liked in Brooklyn. As soon as I walked into the apartment and looked around, I fell in love with the brightness and openness.
The location wasn't as convenient as the former apartment, but it had more space and a lot of sunshine and breeze coming in from the windows. It wasn't a "cool" or "fancy" neighborhood, but I could feel a lot of positive energy.
The park nearby was like heaven on earth. Not only was it beautiful, but also the people hanging around there looked very happy.

My doodle of Sunset Park, the new neighborhood that gave me a lot of energy. It's heaven on earth!!!

On the first morning at the new apartment, I naturally woke up around 5 am with sunshine and the sound of birds' singing from a tree in front of my window.
I thought it was still too early to get up, so I tried to go back to sleep  But I already felt full of energy inside me and I couldn't stay in bed anymore.
It was the time that I realized how much the environment; the energy surrounding us affects someone's body and mind, and the importance of listening to what a gut feeling tells us.

I was surfing on a Japanese SNS to see if there were any Japanese communities in the neighborhood, and I found a Japanese woman who had just started her Reiki healing space and was offering trial Reiki treatments at a reasonable price.
Since I had been having the word "Reiki" in my head but never knew what it was, I thought it was a good opportunity for me to experience something new.
I messaged her and made an appointment. She gave me her address and, to my great surprise, it was only several blocks away from me on the same street.

I still didn't know anything about Reiki even on the day of my first Reiki session.
I'm a quite lazy person, so I was like

"If I can experience it, why should I check it in advance?"

I met the woman for the first time.
First of all, she apologized to me that a delivery person might be coming to drop off a package which she had missed receiving the day before. But also, she told me that she had sent Reiki to the future, wishing that it would never disturb our session. I didn't understand what "Reiki to the future" meant since I didn't know anything about Reiki yet. So I felt a little weird.

The Reiki treatment was just so amazing. I felt the energy flowing inside of me, and it was something that I had never experienced before. My first Reiki experience was powerful enough to make this skeptical person believe that anything could happen in this world.
I was floating somewhere between awake and asleep, somewhere totally timeless and peaceful.

"OK, the session is done." she said.
Right after she finished the last word, the doorbell rang. It was the delivery guy she was expecting. We looked at each other. Our eyes were just like "Wow!".

Everything was so perfect for me. I immediately decided to study Reiki with her.
