Modern living can leave us feeling separate. From others. From ourselves. Sometimes from life as a whole. We get so lost that we forget ourselves, our true nature. We lose track of why we are here and why we do the things that we do. But tucked within us is the knowledge, the spark, that there is something more. If we can tune into this whisper, a boundless world opens up. Exactly one year ago, Reiki was this spark for me.
Reiki translates as “universal life-force energy.” That vital force that is life, that allows us to breath and move. That runs through our bodies in meridians and baths every one of our cells. Prana. Chi. Qi. All of it is Reiki. All matter is energy, everything is fluid, nothing in the universe is fixed.
So when we “perform” Reiki, there is nothing to the procedure. We lay our hands on a recipient, or we allow our hands to hover over their body, or we just have the intention of healing and we offer a service to those who are miles away! If Reiki sounds a little hard to pin down, you are trying too hard. As soon as you try to put parameters around Reiki in a way that makes sense to your current brain, the concept wriggles away from you and you are left dumbfounded by another inexplicable Reiki encounter.
So just relax and breathe into what it has to offer you. Open to the unknown possibilities. Entertain the idea that there is no self. That nothing separates you from another. That nothing separates you from the eternal flow of energy that is always running through and around you. Become one with everything so that there is no you and Reiki, no you and the recipient of Reiki. We are all just one, exchanging our good vibes back and forth freely through time and space.
Is this far out? Yes. But is it possible? When we question our perceptions, the universe bursts forth into limitless wonder. Modern science is chiming in with the proven effectiveness of positive thinking and of prayer. The brain, once thought immobile and set by a certain age, is now commonly accepted as ever-changing, if we think the thoughts and believe the believes that make us conducive to change.
The Power of Positive Thinking
Reshaping Your Reality with Belief
Now this may all seem a too conveniently crafted analysis of the powers of Reiki. Take it or leave it. Or take some and leave the rest. I have always found that it is more dangerous to accept the status quo than it is to accept something that others may deem “too crazy.” The biggest teacher of universal love is Reiki itself. Book an appointment with a reputable practitioner and try it for yourself. Do a little research on Reiki trainings and find a good fit for you to begin your journey learning it. Once you become certified in Reiki I, practice it on yourself every day. Every. Day. Let the flow of this energy become a normal and natural part of your life. Literally get into the flow.
As someone who has tried various healing modalities over the course of decades, I can say that out of all of them, Reiki has made the most consistent positive impact on my life. It is not an exaggeration to say that I am a better person because of Reiki. I love myself more. I give more freely. I am forgiving. I am gentle. I practice Reiki on myself every day. I send distance Reiki to others every day. I volunteer for hands-on Reiki healing once a week at Brigham & Women’s hospital. I offer Reiki to any friends and loved ones who will accept it from me. And I am fortunate to have clients who trust me enough to do this energy work with them.
Reiki is not a cure for all that ails us. It is our entry into the limitless compassion and love that heals us at our very core. Once we acknowledge our right to feel better and our power to be able to provide that relief for ourselves, there is no stopping us.
Be love and Be loved,
