Reiki is an energy channeling and exchange technique. This healing energy can be channeled from many different avenues, including but not limited to the earth, spirit and universe. Everything and everyone has energy and exchanges energy in some fashion all the time.
The Reiki Master calls upon different entities or energies and pulls that energy into her/himself, and then directs it through intent into another person’s life fore energy. Our life force energy is what helps us live. Some may call it the soul. But, it’s what makes your heart beat, your mind think, your organs work and your muscles move. When our energies are not strong, we can become ill or experience dis-ease, pains or injuries. It’s similar to when you don’t get enough sleep, which can compromise your immune system, and you are then more susceptible to being sick.
We, along with everyone and everything around us is energy in some form. For instance, many have learned the process of photosynthesis, which is basically plants using the sun’s energy to create food. When you are in nature and feel peace, you are bringing the energy of the plants, trees and animals into you simply by being there. With Reiki, Masters pull the energy around them and channel it into others to help strengthen their life force energy. This boost to your energy can help you heal, maintain health, balance, peace and more. Think of it as medicine for your entire Being. If you are truly willing to heal and let go of anything that may be causing dis-ease or illness in you, then Reiki can help!
The myriad ways Reiki Healing Energy can help you is endless. It helps heal physical, mental, spiritual or emotional ailments; calm you from stress, worry and anxities; create more balance; bring you more openness; release and heal from past trauma or drama from your current life past, past lives, generational connections and/or ancestral lineages; it can help in understanding ourselves and relationships; open, strengthen and increase intuition, plus much, much more. This energy can also be channeled to plants, spaces, places, situations, animals, water and food. Reiki can be used to help anything you can conceive of!
The energy is very gentle and soothing. It may feel like warmth to you, or waves within your body as if you are floating in waves in the ocean, or even as a tingling sensation. Some even experience it as seeing colors or images in the mind’s eye, hearing sounds, or smelling scents. Or, during the session you may not experience anything, yet, after a session you may feel lighter, freer, happier, more balanced as if you just had a relaxing and/or rejuvenating experience, similar to a physical massage. Healing energy or Reiki works well when someone is truly open and accepting and most importantly, ready and determined to heal themselves in body, mind or soul.
Another way to help understand energy exchange, is how you have felt another’s energy before, however, you may not have recognized it. Examples include when you are in a room alone, and you suddenly think someone is behind you, only to turn around and discover someone else has entered the room. Another example is when you “know” someone is about to call before they call, and moments later, you receive a call from that exact person. Basically you are picking up on the thoughts of another person before the action takes place. Those thoughts are energy. Reiki can even help you strengthen this awareness, which is your intuition.
I use another healing method in conjunction with Reiki. It’s a technique to raise another’s vibration. Everything and everyone vibrates at a certain level. By channeling the vibrations to raise someone else’s vibration or frequency, it helps to heal them as well. Sickness, dis-ease, illness and stress can cause a person’s vibration to lower. By using healing energy to raise another’s frequency, it also helps the person’s energy levels to strengthen and help heal them. Using colors to help balance another person is also a method I use. Our bodies have energy centers, most often called chakras. All chakras have a basic color associated with them. If someone is unbalanced, the color of the chakra could be different or not as strong. So, by channeling a certain color – which also has it’s own frequency, or vibration – it can help heal someone by balancing and strengthening these energy centers. Reiki masters can use many different tools, including essential oils & elixirs, herbs, crystals, sounds, drums and symbols.
You do not need to be present in a physical way with a Reiki Master. A Reiki Master can send you energy across space and time. (Ha…sounds like a sci-fi movie!) This energy can be sent directly to you at once, or it can be programmed, like a DVR, to be sent at a certain date, time & place, or queued up. Queuing it up means sending the energy but intending the energy to be held in spirit or space (I ask the spiritual entities to “hold” it) until the person is ready to accept it. The scheduling or queing techniques work very well with someone who is busy and is not able to find a mutually available time with the Reiki Master. Scheduling also works well for surgeries, appointments with doctors or even for court cases. I’ve done all of the above and more with scheduling. I’ve queued energy very often for my clients who do not live near me or don’t have a set schedule, but know at some point with a day or two, they will have time to lie down and accept the energy. The person who is receiving the queued up energy when ready for it will simply say “I am now ready to accept the energy Heather (or whomever has sent it) has sent to me.” This method works, because in the spirit world, time and space does not exist and it has no meaning. However, spirit understands for us to live as humans, we need a measurement, which is time and space. Energy and spirit can be anywhere and everywhere at the same time. Therefore, I can also send to a group of people and the energy will go to each individual in the manner in which each person needs it. It’s the power of the healing energy.
When working with someone, I can intend for the energy to help with a particular matter, but the energy, when mixing with their life force energy, will also go where that individual needs it the most. For instance, let’s say you have injured your right foot. The energy will help heal your foot, but it may also work with the reason you hurt your foot. This reason may or may not be revealed to the Reiki Master or the individual at that time, but it will help bring it up. It can happen later to the person as an “Aha!” moment. Perhaps the person wasn’t supposed to make a certain decision to move forward in a certain way. That’s why they may have hurt their foot. The message is to make another decision, which will bring about a better situation. And, this is what I call Intuitive Life Guidance. While I send someone healing energy, I will get messages to give them from Angels, Guides and different types of light entities, such as Ascended Masters, and other higher vibrational light beings. One client I have worked with asked for energy because she fell down the stairs and broke several ribs. The energy definitely wanted to go to her ribs, but it also told me through the feel of the energy that it was going into her temple. I told her she may have a fracture there. The doctors didn’t diagnose any issues with her head at first, but when she went back to the hospital for an another issue, the doctors found the fracture. This is the benefit and power of healing energy. Reiki healing energy is truly limitless in the ways it can help us heal ourselves!
