When a Reiki practitioner practices frequently and remains open to unlimited possibilities of the modality, the intuitive abilities often grows in clarity and strength. It is not unusual for a Reiki practitioner to experience a third-eye vision for the client. Sometimes, these visions are scenes from a past life of the client. Some scenes may be heartwarming remembrances, such as a mother caring for her newborn or a healer providing herbs to a neighbor. Other scenes may be horrific – a wrongly accused witch being burned at the stake, or a soldier being injured on the battlefield.
When we consider how many scenarios each of us have lived through already in this lifetime – and then think about how many we have experienced in dozens of previous lives, we have to wonder why this particular scene? Why now?
Spirit is selective in choosing the perfect scene to show, at just the right time in a person’s life. Let me share a past life scene that came to my third eye during a Reiki session. I saw the client as a Native American woman with long pigtails, dancing along a creek, alone. The woman had a similar body type and hair color as the client, but she also had many physical differences. I sensed the woman’s connection to Mother Earth, and joy emanated from her body.
I asked my Reiki guide to give me more information that would be helpful for the client. I was told she also feels a strong connection to the Divine when she is in nature. Dance is an activity that would build positive energy in her physical body. But the client is not taking the time to be in nature more frequently, as she is too focused on her career.
When we discussed the messages I received while giving Reiki, I also shared this past life scene. Initially, I did not share Spirit’s interpretation. The client strongly resonated with spending more time in nature, stating this is something she has been wanting to “fit into” her schedule. As we discussed this further, she realized this needs to be a priority in her life.
The dancing aspect was less clear to her, but with some gentle prodding, she admitted dance has a great appeal for her but she has many fears about dancing. These fears ranged from viewing herself as clumsy and uncoordinated, thinking she weighed too much to dance, and feeling foolish. She recognized dance is only one area where her fears have prevented her from following her heart’s desires. The more we discussed this vision, the more she realized how much fear has ruled how she is living this life – a great life lesson for her.
We should approach these visions with calmness and trust. If you do not know if a client is open to past life beliefs, still share the vision. You can state it may be a past life experience, or the vision may simply be the way Spirit is imparting wisdom. Your trust in the importance of the vision will help the client to build trust. My experience has been that clients will always figure out what message(s) are being given through the vision.
If you have doubts about your ability to receive these helpful messages, give yourself Reiki – to become more open, to be non-judgmental, to build more trust. Working with Spirit, through the healing energies of Reiki Wisdom, is an ongoing adventure!
