Away from the familiar world to attend a parent who needs care.
Reiki Healing helps me tremendously when I was emotionally and psychologically touched by a suffering of a parent. Seeing one of my parents in pain and in sickness reflect on me, as I, my body can be in pain and in sickness at one point. Not to take the pain & suffering of other(s) is the hardest, but if you can, it gives you the strength to become a best caregiver (even for your own parent). All experience helps you grow if you want to.
