Which came first… the chicken or the egg? This has been debated for centuries. Some say the chicken of course… the chicken laid the egg. Others would argue that the egg hatched the first chicken… but then how did the egg get here?
The same is true with our beliefs. What came first… a belief or an experience? Did you have an experience that led you to believe in something new? Or, did a belief allow you to have an experience that you might not have had?
When it comes to Reiki, and the idea of opening to higher consciousness… there are strong opinions on both sides. Some people can’t believe in something they have not experienced. Others experience something, when they are open and willing to believe. In my opinion, it is all about opening. When you can open yourself to the possibility of a new experience, you will have one.
My personal belief in Universal Life Force Energy and our collective connection was confirmed in my first Reiki session, many years ago. It’s what opened me to wanting to know more and fed my desire to want to help others connect to themselves in this way. It became a mission.
As a Reiki Master Teacher, it’s hard not to feel passionate about Reiki and the ways in which it helps. It’s like you’ve unlocked a secret and want to share it with the world. The more ways you work with Reiki, the more it works for you and you start to see how Reiki can truly be used on anyone, in any situation. It feels impossible that there can be someone who doesn’t believe in this magical energy that is so simple to access.
Open to Reiki… give it a try… and you will become a believer. I have never had someone walk out of a session disappointed. Reiki finds you where you are.
It’s exciting to see all of the ways that the world is opening to Reiki. It seems each day there are more and more scientific experiences, proving that each of us has an electromagnetic field of energy around us and that it is possible to regulate the frequency of this field. There are experiments that have been done with water, showing changes to the crystallization of water, indicating that the Reiki has significantly altered the composition. Being we are made of mostly water, imagine what it does for us? Our energy can be shifted. We can learn to regulate our emotions and build resilience and find courage we never knew we had. Reiki is available to all of us, at anytime.
We have all been conditioned to believe in what we can see with our eyes. We need proof… we are skeptics. We need to rewire ourselves to trust in our hearts and to feel things we can’t see. Seeing is not always believing, sometimes the belief needs to lead. Sometimes believing can lead you to an experience that can change you forever. Don’t stop believing. Believe in yourself and your connection to light. Believe in the Universal Life Force Energy that connects you to every living thing. This is Reiki.
