Healing With Reiki
How and What does Reiki Heal?
During a Reiki session, whether you are laying hands on yourself or others, Universal life force energy is channeled into and through the practitioner and is directed out of the hands by the Higher Power (Greater Mind, Universal Intelligence, God). Reiki seeks out energetic blockages, distortions, or areas in the physical and etheric bodies that need healing. In one way or another, Reiki dispels negative energy and restores the flow of positive energy, thus allowing the receiver to heal herself. In quantum-physics-speak, Reiki provides new light, love and information to a situation that is stuck in the bodies.
It is well known that our minds are the great makers of dis-ease. What we think on a daily basis creates the energy that resides in the mental part (body) of our human energy field (HEF). If our thoughts about any given situation are negative, they naturally give rise to negative emotions, which reside in the emotional part (body) of our HEF. If we do not process these negative thoughts and emotions by gaining a greater understanding or acceptance of them or letting them go, they will eventually “solidify” as blockages or distortions in the flow of energy that keeps us healthy. Other causes of dis-ease, such as spiritual malaise, karma, past life trauma, etc. also lodge themselves in the HEF. These disruptions in flow may eventually find their way into the physical body, making us physically ill. Obviously, the key to maintaining good health is to keep the HEF clear and free flowing. Reiki can help us do that.
Reiki has been known to heal every form of illness there is. However, it is important to understand the nature of the human contract with the Divine as we practice freedom of will. We create our own well-being or ill-being largely through choice. We may not see the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual predicaments we find ourselves in as our personal choice, yet if extrapolated far enough, the evidence is clear that we’ve willingly taken on the responsibility of using the gifts and/or handicaps we’ve been born with as the backdrop for the drama we enact on this plane during this lifetime.
So, healing from a Reiki session is not a guarantee. Healing takes place when it is in alignment with the receiver’s life purpose or spiritual path. Reiki works in concert with one’s intention, attention, and manifesting action. It is subtle energy that is always beneficial and never does harm. At one end of the spectrum, it may merely provide the relaxation one needs to clear the hurdles of the moment or day. On the other end, it may create the miracle that most of us hope for. The key is to let go of that which no longer serves us and to feel genuine gratitude by accepting the process of healing that is exactly right for us in this moment of time.
With the proper initiations, Reiki can be applied to oneself (a wonderful gift to yourself!), other people, animals, personal or world situations, the Earth, environment, universe, other dimensions, past, present, or future, locally or at a distance. The sky is no limit.
