Releasing Betrayal with Reiki

Article by Reiki Master Judy Camblor

How do you deal with betrayal? We can rage against a person who has betrayed us, but what does that solve? How can we remember to apply Reiki principals to the emotions of betrayal once we have learned of a situation that makes us extremely uncomfortable, angry and hurt? Depends on the situation, right? But does it really? Can we use what we have learned as Reiki practitioners to resolve emotions that come from a betrayal? Let’s explore.

A few times in my life I have been betrayed by friends who have claimed to have my best interest at heart, yet they have kept very profound secrets from me. Due to my spiritual elevation and my perceptive and intense intuition, I knew all along something was not right in these situations. But our human brains need proof and confirmation. So, I naturally sit back and wait. Eventually, the truth always comes to light. I enjoy being an open person. I do not believe in living a life where lies and manipulation are normal, nor do I believe that pretending to be someone or something that we are not is psychologically healthy. I find that so much peace comes from standing in your truth. There is something to be said for “keeping it real.”

However, we encounter people who, because of shame and guilt, have a lot to hide. People who wear a mask to hide their shame and guilt do not look inside and accept themselves as they are. I ask myself, how can we have natural relationships with people who do not know how to stand in their truth because they live in a world of lies? Wouldn’t it bring more peace to our souls if we could be honest even if we knew we betrayed someone we otherwise cared about? Wouldn’t it be liberating to step out of those shadows and reveal our true colors and let the chips fall where they may? The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.

Releasing Betrayal with Reiki

When we live an awakened life through Reiki, Reiki helps to repel those who have or will betray us through its spiritually guided consciousness. Many people who were in my life have tried to get back into my circle of trust in different ways. Yet Reiki has given me the clarity to know when not to allow certain people back into my life, whether I was certain of their betrayal or not. Those of us that practice Reiki self-care and provide healings are compassionate beings. We like to give people the benefit of the doubt and understand their shortcomings. Yet, once we are aware of a betrayal, our own higher self will repel these people. Trust is earned not given. And once that trust is broken, your relationship can never be the same again.

So how do we recover from a betrayal using our Reiki skillset? Do we wish the same karma on those who we once held dear? No, we shouldn’t. We should send love and healing energy to those who betray us and ask our higher selves to continue to repel them from our lives in a gentle and loving manner so that no further karma is created between us. When they ask us how or why we grew apart, my answer is simply, “ask yourself that question.”

As a practitioner, work with your Heart and Sacral chakras to recognize the emotions and process them. Using your Reiki journal, write about the entire experience. This will allow you to release these thoughts and emotions and clear your Throat chakra as well. Recognize that their betrayal has nothing to do with you but has everything to do with them. Has there been a confrontation, or do you believe there will be one at some point? Whether a confrontation has occurred or not, send distance healing to that person and the situation. While initially you may not want to send them healing because you are processing your own emotions about the situation, sending compassion, love and understanding can help to bring you closer to a place of peace about the situation. You will be consciously rewiring the subconscious mind to attune to feelings of gratitude for learning a lesson from the betrayal, and it will open the space to overcome the emotions from the betrayal in a much healthier manner rather than holding onto all the resentment.

Wishing you a day full of love and light!

    Dear Judy,
    Very beautifully explained, i have been through this and was able to release most of my emotional pain only with the help of reiki. Initially to send reiki for such persons was so difficult as the trauma was making it difficult, but reiki healed me to such an extent that when i visualise them i no longer feel any animosity. Reiki is the best gift i could ever have in my life. thank you for your love and light. God bless dear angel.

    Hi Judy,
    Great post, thank you! A lot of people would be amazed with the healing abilities of Reiki. Since everything is energy and Reiki is energy healing, Reiki can be used to heal almost any mental, emotional and physical problems.
