When I first started my Reiki journey I was so nervous, had so many self-doubts and a lot of fear – would I be good enough? A clear enough channel? Would Reiki work for me? I wasn’t sure how I could go about bringing this amazing energy into my life and the lives of others. Reiki is so magnificent, I wasn’t sure I would know what to do with it.
I had been sensing, talking to and working with Angels my whole life so I did what came naturally and asked the Angels for guidance, in particular, Archangel Raphael as he is associated with healing. When I ask Angels for guidance I usually ask in my head and just know when the answer has arrived, in the form of intuition, signs, and synchronicities. But when it’s a big question I write my question down and then doodle until the doodling becomes writing and I know that what I am writing is channeled.
This is the message that I channeled from Archangel Raphael, it was so simple and pure and true that it gave me so much comfort, it still does. I give it to my Reiki students to take or leave as they wish and I give it to you now in that spirit too. Take into your heart what resonates with you:
“Start by influencing your thoughts with Love. Every action and deed needs to come from a place of Loving intention.
Speak with Love, act with Love, know that you are Love.
Overcome fears and doubts by filling your mind and heart with Love. Practice using Loving actions and words to everyone you meet.
Withhold judgment about what anyone deserves, including yourself.
Connect to the highest Loving energy you can feel and use it.
Ask for energy and it will be given. Open your heart, not just your palms to Loving healing.
Be Love when you are healing, don’t just feel it – be Love.
Love is the place from which anything can happen. Love is positivity, kindness, gentle, open, strong, healing, understanding, powerful, good, soothing, calming, balancing.
If you need uplifting go back to Love.
If you feel fear go back to Love.
If you doubt yourself go back to Love.
Love is where it all begins and where it all will end and where you can draw power from on your journey between. Go back to Love, connect with Love, channel Love, radiate Love.
