During a Reiki treatment we partake in discovering healing and balance by directly connecting with our source. This source is not some separate location or place of origin, far removed in time and space. It is that which we are in every moment, yet fail to notice because we cling to so many limited concepts about ourselves, most often not even feeling our own presence. Sometimes defeating concepts and beliefs prevent us from appreciating our true nature. Because of their constant agitation we experience mental and physical imbalances, which inevitably manifest as degeneration and disease.
Through the use of Reiki healing, we can prevent ourselves from straying further from the source. We heal ourselves through the direct application of the source’s very own energy in the body. In this way, Reiki heals us from the depth of our own being: kindly, gently, and without undue imposition. If we permit ourselves to surrender and feel the flow of universal life force energy as it recharges our own life force, a Reiki healing treatment turns into a very comforting, nourishing, and pleasing experience. Afterwards we feel more at one with ourselves, more vibrant, and more alive.
Because the mind is contained in the entire body, illness in any one spot is an indication of a specific energetic block. For example, the experience of grief can create arthritis in the joints, and so forth. When you target concentrations of negatve emotional or mental energy with universal life force energy you can help eradicate disease in the body.
To treat a mind with Reiki healing is to liberate the mind from the shackles of long-buried memories, traumatic experiences, and painful emotions. When exposed to the love and transforming power of universal life force energy, these remnants of old traumas and misunderstandings are released. We also cease clinging to them, because Reiki permeates both the clinging and the one who clings. By treating the mind in this way, we express our desire for freedom in practical terms by fully accepting things as they are. When we accept things as they are, we disregard the impulse to try and destroy the ego.
Practising and receiving Reiki always happens simultaneously. It does not matter whether you are the giving or the receiving partner during a treatment; through Reiki attunements we are ceaselessly connected with the immeasurable energy that is the essence of our nature. With Reiki healing, we acknowledge the fact that as manifestations of energy, we are free from the constraints of ordinary time and space. We are actually free to touch anything, no matter how remote in time or space it may appear to be. With Reiki, we are well equipped on a practical level to express the freedom that we are.
