Article by Reiki Master Judy Camblor
Holding space for others during their healing journey has led me to live an inspired life through Reiki. As a conduit of life force energy, I allow others to freely express their needs and assist them in finding harmony and balance. I live inspired by my Reiki practice every day as I see the people who I help flourish in their lives.
For those who don’t understand what Reiki is or how holding hands over a person’s body can heal them, I like to explain it like this:
Life force energy is found in all of us. It is the energy created by all of the systems of our bodies including our cells, organs, muscles, and bones working together and expelling an energetic force field outward around our bodies. However, it is more than that. This energy is responsible for our original thoughts and our survival instinct; it is also responsible for our sexual and creative desires; our personal power and self-confidence; feelings of love, empathy, kindness, and acceptance are created by our life force energy; our ability to communicate and express ourselves; our intuition and our connection to the divine are accessed through the development of our life force energy. As you can see, life force energy is not just the energy that our physical bodies need to function, but it is also the energy needed for us to communicate, feel, and experience.
As a Reiki practitioner, I am able to tap into life force energy for myself or others. When I became attuned by my Reiki master, a channel for working with life force energy was opened through the crown of my head. The initial attunement received during a Level 1 course opens the energy channel so that the person receiving the attunement can work with life force energy for their own benefit or for the benefit of others. By opening this channel, the practitioner is able to act as a conduit for this energy. Imagine that a practitioner is a straw through which life force energy can easily be absorbed and expelled through inhalations and exhalations. As a conduit, a practitioner is able to release stagnant, repressed or unexpressed energy that is stuck in the body and bring the body’s life force energy back to a harmonious balance.
As a conduit, I am holding that space for the people I assist in order for this transfer of energy to take place; transferring out the stagnant energy, and replacing it with fresh energy. During this transference, I practice Hui Yin and pranic breath for myself. Through these two techniques, I am able to close my own energetic channel in order to protect myself from absorbing the energies that assist in removing and replacing as well as allowing me to maintain the focus of the transference of energies taking place.
As I help others heal, I find healing is taking place for me as well. Because of my empathic nature, I recognize what Reiki has brought to my life and my practice. I’ve worked with many people who have had similar life experience as I have; people who have needed the same healing that I have needed. And, thus, as I facilitate a healing for someone, I experience healing in the same part of my own life that matches the vibration of my client’s healing needs.
Bringing peace, tranquility and creating balance and harmony for others on an energetic vibrational level has brought the same into my own life. All the energy in the universe vibrates at different frequencies; love is the highest of those frequencies. When I set the intention to treat those around me with love and compassion, I am able to facilitate not just healing energies but also bring peace and tranquility to them which gives them feelings of balance and harmony.
I like to take a moment to myself during a session after the Reiki is done, the crystals are laid out, and I allow the body to absorb the new energy, I contemplate how grateful I am to do what I love. How grateful I am to be living my purpose. I am truly inspired by each positive outcome and by the progress I see taking place before me for each of my clients.
Wishing you a day full of love and light!
