Healing the Past with Reiki and the Energy of Love

Article by Justine Melton

Do you have things that bother you from your past? A bad breakup, a traumatic event, or something that makes you feel bad whenever you are reminded of it? This negative energy could be holding you back in your present life. Reiki is an amazing healing force for healing past emotions and situations. When combined with the healing energy of love dramatic results can occur. You are not going to change what happened in the past but your perspective on it may change and instead of negative emotions and energy surrounding that event peace and love will surround it. The negativity will fade away and blocks from the past will no longer hinder your future.

Here is the method that I use on myself as well as with clients. I have found it to be especially effective with past relationship wounds.

  • First, spend 10 minutes relaxing and using your favorite way (relaxing music, breath work, Reiki, etc.) to get into a meditative state. If you are a Reiki Practitioner I have found extra benefits if you do this method during your regular self-reiki session.
  • After you are in a deeply relaxed state think of a situation, emotion, or person that has hurt you in the past. Send the Distance and Emotional healing symbol 2x each. If you are a Reiki Master send the Master symbol as well.
  • Acknowledge what is coming and just let it sit in front of you for about 30 seconds and just let it be.
  • Thank this presence for the growth it brought to your life no matter how painful it may be.
  • Then, immediately visualize a large, radiant, pink bubble of love surrounding it. To be able to better connect with the healing power of love think of something that makes you feel as if you’re at a higher vibrational level. This could be a favorite holiday, sexual encounter, favorite song, etc. Allow this loving energy from this good memory to wrap around the bubble of the unpleasant event from your past. Visualize the loving healing energy radiating right through the bubble and soaking the past situation in pure love.
  • Make 3 emotional healing symbol’s on the unpleasant event here.
  • Then, send Reiki and loving energy to it for 5 minutes.

  • At the end of the 5 minutes visualize the bubble with the unpleasant event from the past start rising into the sky. It slowly and gently floats up higher and higher.
  • Once it is so high up that you can barely see it visualize that it is so full of love from all of the Reiki and love energy that was sent to it that it bursts into a million pieces of bright pink light.

The unpleasant event is no more. It has left you. Notice how much lighter your heart and entire being feels.

Wishing you love and light.

    this is good to bring peace to oneself but what can we do to bring change to other person.because you can not leave the other side if the person is directly related to you and the reason is not known

    The article is nicely arranged. I see the writer has a true knack for
    this subject. I like that subject, and I’m in constant search of new pieces and
    the most recent news. I truly enjoyed that one, since it’s full
    of fascinating facts and it’s a kind of article.
    I spent only a couple of minutes reading and because of well-structured text, so I know it totally.

    What an imaginative short article! Plus an enlightening a solitary, also!

    Thank a specific a lot! People on the internet rarely publish that a lot to make really terrific content.
    I kind of sense much like both you as well as
    https://erin-maloney.com are the simply excellent material designers left.
    Just my estimate.
