Article by Deborah Lloyd, Reiki Master
Recently, another Reiki Master commented she often tells her students, “Reiki evolves with you.” As soon as I heard this statement, I knew it was profound. I have been pondering and meditating on this thought ever since! There are layers and layers of meaning within it.
Anyone who has used Reiki consistently, for more than a year or two, will tell you their experience with Reiki has changed, and continues to change. They report a closer connection to The Universe, and there is a growing trust that Spirit is working with them during sessions. Frequently, the practitioner feels, or intuits, spiritual guidance on where to place their hands where healing is especially needed. They may receive energetic impressions, or specific messages. They move from a belief that healing energies emanate from their hands, to knowing this is true. Knowing the Divine is always available for healing is an essential step in the process of becoming a Reiki practitioner.
The personal ego of seeing oneself as a healer evolves into the realization that one is merely the channel for Divine Healing. What happens on the Reiki table, and beyond, surpasses anything a human being can do. The definition of a miracle is an extraordinary event that surpasses all natural, human powers, and comes from the supernatural world. Anyone who consistently works with Reiki can list many miracles they have witnessed – whether it is a physical cure; the release of an emotional block held for many years by a client; spiritual growth through forgiveness or greater understanding by a client. Healing is possible in all mind, body, spirit aspects of a person, as it is from the Source.
As Reiki assists us in becoming more aware of the Divine, many wonderful things begin to happen in our lives. Our eyes open to many exciting synchronicities and signs. Making good decisions about material possessions becomes easier. Healthy relationships are greatly desired, and attainable. Ascertaining our life purpose becomes clearer. A persona of peaceful harmony, with ourselves and with others, is developed. Our world has been transformed. Reiki evolves with us.
All of us forgot that Unconditional Love has always been available in our lives, as we were often told we were not good enough, did not pray hard enough, or many other falsehoods. We developed our thought and belief systems around these untruths for years and decades. It takes time to fully integrate Truth into our beings, once again.
The words “with you” are vital. This means that we are never alone in our spiritual journey. We are always supported and given many opportunities for spiritual growth. Frequently, we think we are all alone. Nothing can be further from the Truth!
If you have not realized an evolution with Reiki – yet – continue with your Reiki practice and actively pursue healing. Every time you connect with Source, the opportunity for healing is present. Ask for release of any emotional or spiritual block that is bringing disharmony to your life. Ask for guidance – and doors will be opened for you – it may come in the form of a person, a book, an inspired thought. Keep working with Reiki and any other modality of healing that you feel will assist you on your journey.
Don’t forget: Reiki evolves with you. Be open to this amazing journey!
