One of the things that I love most about Reiki is that besides the fact that it balances every aspect of the body it also has amazing protection abilities against negative energy. Everyone has their own belief system and I think a lot of it has to do with what you yourself experience as a practitioner. It is hard to expect someone else to believe in negative or dark forces if they themselves have not seen or knowingly experienced them.
One of the things that I love the most about Reiki Rays is that I am able to see how different people use the same healing modality to do so many different things. Even with just using Reiki as a tool for protection I have read several different versions of how different practitioners do it. It is such a great place to share knowledge and provides you new things to try in your own practice or on yourself as well.
Part of my healing practice involves house cleansings. I am used to dealing with helping to remove negativity and darkness from living spaces and sometimes from people with the help of Reiki. Every space and person is different however and sometimes you don’t even know what you are going to find until you start a session. Recently I had a client (who I will call Mike) who wanted to give Reiki a try because of how overwhelmed and stressed he was. I scheduled the session for an evening after work and didn’t think much of it.
Before each Reiki session I give I meditate for about 15 minutes. During this time I protect myself by surrounding myself in white light and making a large Master symbol over the front of my body. Once I have finished this process I open myself up to any messages that may help my client heal or that may help me to provide the best Reiki session possible.
At the start of my meditation before Mike’s Reiki session the guides came through immediately. They couldn’t wait to communicate with me to the point that I had to ask them to please slow down so that I could understand them. I was told that Mike was on the verge of a huge health crisis if he didn’t take the time now to distress and slow down. More interesting however was what was shown to me. I had an image of Mike standing before me radiating white light. Normally he had quite a bit of white light radiating out. However, I was shown that he had very little white light left because of a dark energy that was trying to attach itself to him. Instead of radiating light I was shown a very faint white light surrounding him with what looked like a black energy covering the back of him and wrapping around his neck/chest area like a black cloak. It was a bit erie. I was told that it was very important for me to keep myself protected during this session but not to worry because I could remove this darkness from Mike with Reiki.
Mike came in for the typical session and I could feel a lot of tension surrounding him. What was interesting was that when I did a scan of his body at the beginning of the session I kept getting shortness of breath and a choking sensation when I scanned over his neck and chest area. This was interesting to me because this was the location where I saw the darkness/black cloak holding on to his body at. I performed Mike’s session just as I would any other one. When I got to the 3rd eye, throat and heart chakra’s the shortness of breath/choking sensation came back. I worked my way through it and continued to send Reiki. About half way through the time I spent on the heart chakra the darkness had completely been removed from Mike’s body. It was shown to me as being next to me on the floor. I picked it up (as if picking up a small animal), drew a master symbol over an area on the floor, and then used my hands to act as if I was physically putting this object into the ground. After the darkness was in the hole in the earth I sealed it with a large Master symbol and beamed Reiki to it for about a minute.
I then continued with the rest of the Reiki session and was shown angels wrapping Mike in a warm blanket of love. They said that he was in need of extra love and wanted to provide extra healing during the session. Once the session was over Mike reported feeling lighter, amazingly relaxed, and said that he felt as if he was surrounded by love during the session. I explained to him what I had seen during the entire session. He said that a lot of things made sense to him and he repeatedly thanked me for the session. He is now a regular client and has even had Reiki done in his business and home as well.
I am hopeful that by sharing this story some of you will have the desire to see what you can really do with Reiki beyond the typical session. If you feel called to try something new go with your gut and see where it takes your practice. Reiki continues to amaze me every day and I am thankful for all the goodness it has brought into my life. It offers a great deal of protection and allows you to remove darkness from a person as well.
Wishing you all love and light.
