Many energy workers talk about raising frequency. While that is not a bad idea, focusing on the raising of frequency has created a sometimes negative vocabulary and labels around lower frequencies. As life force energy, Reiki contains all frequencies necessary for life. That includes slower moving low frequencies and faster moving high frequencies.
The science of sound helps us to understand that the slower a wave pattern moves, the lower the frequency and the faster a wave pattern moves, the higher the frequency. Low vibrations have come to be associated with difficult aspects of life such as anger, depression or fear. It can be a tendency to reject the lower frequencies as “Bad” or “negative” and refuse to deal with them at all.
Yet, by its very nature, Reiki leads us to the root of whatever issues we are dealing with. This means that, even though Reiki usually comes in at a high frequency, it will follow the frequency to whatever point is necessary to help us understand, work with, learn from and clear our issues.
Seen this way, no frequency is inherently ‘negative’. Our goal in sharing Reiki is to attain and maintain balance and homeostasis. To do this, we must find the balance between the higher vibrations of the universe and the lower vibrations of the Earth. By mixing these vibrations in our heart field, we embrace the beating heart of Reiki and are able to attain balance.
Using Reiki to Embrace All of Life’s Frequencies
1. One way to use Reiki to help you embrace all of the frequencies flowing through your life is to spend time each day in meditation, sending self-Reiki. After you open your Reiki channel and thank the universe for responding to that request, simply observe what happens.
Allow your objective mind to follow the Reiki energy no matter where it goes. If it goes deep into a past event, follow it as far as you can. If the density of the energy feels intense, try not to label it as ‘negative’. Just pull out, take a deep breath, center yourself and follow the energy once more.
2. Learn as much as you can from the lower frequencies. Instead of thinking of them as ‘dense’ or ‘heavy’, think of them as complex, filled with many themes and deeply rewarding. Send the Mental/Emotional Symbol, or, if you are attuned to Karuna® Reiki, send Shanti to the frequencies. This can help you take apart the lower frequencies, a little each day, until you have learned what you need. You will notice that the particular frequency will then balance out, sharing its wisdom with your entire being.
3. Embrace each lesson that you have learned from the lower frequencies. As you remain aware of the Reiki energy flowing through you from above, allow the energy of the lower frequencies to rise until it meets the Reiki frequencies at your heart field. When you feel the mingling of energies, cross your hands over your heart to embrace all of what life is offering you.
4. When your session feels complete, thank the universe and your own inner wisdom for teaching you the richness and depths of the frequencies of life. Send the Power Symbol or, if you are a Reiki Master, the Reiki Master Symbol, to end your session.
Remember, all frequencies that exist in our world exist for a reason. If you go out in nature, you will hear high-frequency bird calls and the lower frequencies of frogs. You will hear the abrasive sounds of traffic or the high hum of an electric line. All aspects of life are necessary and can benefit us if we keep them in balance.
