As a Reiki Master Teacher, I am often asked about the practical application of Reiki to help improve people’s lives. Wonderful examples of how Reiki can improve real life situations have been demonstrated again and again in my experience of teaching Reiki to the survivors of narcissistic abuse in my spiritual support groups.
As a member of the clergy, I am contacted by people in crisis very frequently. One of the first things to remember when working with people in crisis is to make sure that they contact both legal and medical professionals right away, so that they are educated about their legal rights and health. There are many social services available for victims of abuse, and gently guiding them to take advantage of these services is a first step in their healing journey. Once they are informed, they can safely move on to exploring some of their spiritual questions surrounding these experiences.
As the awareness of Narcissism and narcissistic abuse becomes more and more common in the media, victims of this very destructive type of emotional and spiritual abuse are beginning to reach out for help. Educating the public about how narcissists operate in the world is a wonderful first step in helping people recognize their toxic behavior.
The rise of Narcissism is truly a threat to the health and wellbeing of humanity. Narcissists, in their selfish and manipulative actions, can leave very real spiritual wounds in their wake. They are often called “Psychic Vampires” or “Emotional Vampires”, because they feed off of the pain and suffering of others. On the spiritual and etheric level, their search for “narcissistic supply” feeds off of the target’s energy body and Universal Life Force. As the abuse continues, the victim can feel their energy and vitality draining away. This is where Reiki training is hugely beneficial.
The beauty of teaching Reiki to the survivors of narcissistic abuse is in Reiki’s simplicity. The attunement ceremony begins to unlock the student’s latent psychic ability and spiritual gifts. Once this psychic ability is activated, the student can begin to tune into their own “gut instincts” or intuition regarding the people in their lives. They will be led to better choices in relationships and getting the proper help in whatever is concerning them. They begin to set boundaries and remove toxic people from their lives. They connect with the proper professionals to help them in their goals. Most importantly, their self-esteem begins to rise as they claim their freedom from past spiritual wounds. The Reiki attunements work in a truly profound way, and will lead the student to their highest good if they devote themselves to their daily self-healing.
The student of Reiki can also rebuild and restore their spiritual energy systems with daily self-healing. Students who practice daily self-healing are truly following the spiritual path of success. This daily self-healing strengthens, heals and protects the energy system. Once the life force has been restored, the student of Reiki will find themselves “in the flow”, and their vitality levels will rise. In this space of spiritual healing, the True Self will be revealed. This True Self will guide the student of Reiki to their own Divine Destiny, which is always for the highest good of all concerned. Once we are connected to our True Self, magic will begin to happen in our lives. The right people and right situations will begin to appear, and the spiritual journey of healing will naturally unfold.
As the spiritual seeker continues to focus their energy on daily self-healing, the changes in their life will be truly rewarding and profound. Because the teachings of Reiki are very easy to grasp and share, the student will find that a whole new world of love and light is open to them, and they can move forward in their life journey with the very powerful spiritual wellness tool of Reiki. I have had great success in using Reiki to help the members of my spiritual support group heal and move on from their past. With Reiki, miracles really do happen every day!
