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.
