You are Worthy, You can Heal Yourself, You Create your Life
Reiki Healing Q &A
I was inspired to create this page from communications with clients and friends who have questions as they are entering into the process of becoming healers... This page will continue to grow I am sure! And truth be told: its totally OK to be kinda scared. More truth be told: its only as scary as our own monsters and minds are. So it follows that we can free ourselves. Woo! Wouldn't you love to see those monsters turn to dust? Poof! And that is the truth, they're actually nothing. Everything we live is a creation from ourselves.
Back to Reiki: Question 1: How do I know what to heal in myself or others? The beautiful thing about Reiki energy healing is you don't have to know what is wrong or missing. Reiki goes wherever it needs to go. If something feels wrong or painful you can simply put your hands on yourself or the person you are treating and allow the energy to go where it needs to go. Its just that simple. We've been taught that we are disconnected from life source energy and that's what makes it hard, we're conditioned to look outward for the answers to our 'problems'.. yet we are able from birth as humans to heal ourselves and others. This is our birthright. I would add that when you start to believe you are able to heal yourself, you can simply use Reiki on yourself and see what happens. The more you practice and build up the awareness, the more new information you will receive. You receive the information through your hands. You must be attuned to to this. but this is our birthright and its not hard, its more like a sweet initiation process that celebrates being alive. Ever heard of a quinceanera? Same idea. Ancient cultures used initiation rites, they used them on all of their men and women to indoctrinate them into being fully alive. this is no different, it already exists and just needs to be awoken.
Question 2: I'm so new and I feel like I don't know... how will I know what to do? Let your Reiki guides do the work for you. When you are attuned (which is like turning on a light switch, its not hard! And it's available everyone.. in my experience you need to be physically preset to receive the attunement) .. When you are attuned you have the lineage of the masters who attuned those before standing behind you to help guide and direct the energy. If you forget a step, don't worry, if you can only do half a session, it will all work out. Part of the energy healing process (in my experience) is letting go of the rational linear mind (we must to X the Y then Z to get our outcome).. it is about allowing the healing energy to flow through you. So you CAN'T get it wrong! Those who have gone before you are standing behind you and guiding you and the energy. See if you can just let yourself trust the process. You might not see results immediately, or you might!I've personally had both happen many times and everything in between. I would add that most of the time when I didn't get an immediate "ah-ha" satisfaction that the energy worked, the person wrote me or approached me months later telling me about how the energy worked. Everything in the right time. We are truly only conduits for energy when we step into the Reiki energy healing system.
Question 1: Can Reiki be harmful to me? Answer, No. Its pure white energy. Noone can do Reiki on you without your permission. It is a channeling of white light from other dimensions of the divine. So everything you receive during a self treatment or a treatment form another person is GOOD. Period. You can't harm yourself or do anything wrong with Reiki. If you intend for healing energy to come into your body or the body of the person you have permission to do healing work on, it will come. You can Reiki yourself for 10 minutes or 5 hours. And the energy might keep flowing afterwards, too. You may experience a warm, tingling feeling, but it could be a cool feeling as well, or you may feel nothing, but I would suggest to keep your awareness open for what is happening around you (Because you are healing yourself and your environment is responding to your being healed.. you are essentially raising you vibration). Reiki feels like you are being hugged with love on the inside. It’s beautiful. You might feel all of a sudden very relaxed and want to take a nap. Or you might feel more energized and want to go out and do things. Whatever your body needs, Reiki will ‘set things right’.
