Reiki is universal life force energy that we all have. Receiving Reiki and getting Reiki attuned just opens this channel of energy in order to flow more clearly. It is something we all have the capabilities of transmitting. I can tell you for certain it does not matter your background, religion, faith, resistance, or confidence level. Whether you want to be a practitioner or not. None of this is a factor. It is pure love. It can heal at a deep level, yet soft and subtle. Reiki has the capabilities of healing trauma, physical ailments, past lives – body, mind, and spirit. This is one of the many wonderful things about Reiki. It is the universe. The light. And there is no wrong way with Reiki.
It’s not that you are broken, but in a world filled with dis-ease – it’s not wonder Reiki and other energy healing modalities have gained so much popularity.
I have noticed in my classes and practice, that whoever is drawn to Reiki – is drawn to Reiki. The answer is actually that simple. But trusting that is the hard part.
They may not have any idea as to why but something about it resonates with them. The amount of “how” drawn to it they are can vary. Some may be very drawn to it (they don’t question it – they just know) while others may be more hesitant. They may feel its time, money or obstacles beyond their control, but the truth is they aren’t quite ready to take on this powerful and healing energy. It heals at a level that I believe is not accessible without willingness.
With students, I have found that they are highly sensitive beings. Sensitive to the “good” and the “bad”. They may not even know why they are in the class, or how they got there, but the energy of Reiki was calling them to it. Calling them to work with their sensitivity, instead of trying to block it.
If you are questioning it, there is something that is not ready to receive. Something in you that may not be ready, or may not want to heal. This is most likely on a subconscious level, but it is there.
If Reiki is coming down your path, or in your sight – a good tool to find out the resistance (if any) is to ask yourself “why is this around me” and if you receive an answer ask “what is my resistance”. Surely you will receive the answer. Then see it, release it, and then see what happens next.
With clients, it is very similar. They show up at my office sometimes saying “I have no idea why I’m here, but I was drawn to you”. I know that they were actually drawn to Reiki and that their life is about to change.
But what does this all mean?
Ultimately it means there is no right or wrong answer. That Reiki can not hurt you, or make things worse. That if you feel something guiding you towards it, go for it. But if you decide to wait – that’s fine too! Allow the answer to come to you. Go with your feelings, your intuition and ask for guidance and trust that the perfect time will be clear to you when its best.
