“Reiki is love,
Love is wholeness,
Wholeness is balance,
Balance is well-being,
Well-being is freedom from disease”
Dr. Mikao Usui
Reiki Session – What it does
I have heard people mentioning about their brief connect with Reiki. Either they took a session or learned Reiki but it didn’t work for them.
They believed once they have taken a session it should have worked on its own for them. And it should have cleared out all that they have been struggling for long. To some extent, Reiki does work in cleansing the system. Yet, it needs an active change of attitude and approach towards life.
At the same time, “Trust” and “Intention” are the major component in getting healed.
What to expect
I have also heard people saying after the session their issues or pain have become worse. Learning Reiki and healing with Reiki does not mean that one gets cured 100% immediately. Healing does not happen overnight (almost never happen if we apply our logical mind to it). Although it can help in relieving aches and pains at the superficial level in the beginning.
The entire process takes some time as inner work is being done and shifts are taking place in the life of the person who has received an *attunement or a healing session. It can be an uncomfortable process to start with.
Explanation of the process
If you look at it as a long pending spring cleaning, you will be able to understand it in a better manner. At first, you would dread to even start the process of cleaning. Partly because you don’t even know where to start from, so you keep delaying. Then there will come a time when you will muster the courage to get up and tell yourself ‘Enough is enough! Now I better take charge of it and start cleaning up.
You reach out to the messy room, your closet, and cabinet, drawers which are filled with junk. When you started this cleaning process first thing you did was to pull out all the junk. The sight isn’t great and it looks messy, very messy. The whole place is upside down and this scenario doesn’t look so good. You feel miserable and start to question yourself as to what made you get into this process.
Now when you are doing this clearing up you browse through things, you want to cling to those things that have certain memories attached to it. Eventually, you may not even want to throw out certain things. Although you know, it has served its purpose and is not required in your life. It doesn’t even fit you anymore. All it is doing is taking extra space in your cupboard. You want to hold on to it for a while. There is also a possibility that you put everything back.
Here you have a choice to either remove it or put it back in your drawer/closet/ room. When you make a choice to stay with all those things you wished to clear out in the first place. And when you put them all back in your cupboard, the entire exercise becomes futile. You end up with the same junk with you.
There are times when you carefully sort out the junk by cleaning and dusting things. You keep things which you are still using. And throw away all those extra things that are of no use anymore. It feels light and happy to get back your beautiful, clean, wonderful looking place back to yourself
Reiki Attunement Process
Similarly,*Reiki attunement triggers a long term healing crisis within us. Healing crisis is a process which is exactly like the spring cleaning. It reaches out to the deepest of places to clear out traumas and pains we have gone through over a period of time in our lives. This process takes time, especially when we have had many years of dysfunction (where we aren’t functioning at our optimum best) or the illness in our lives.
We must allow time and gentle approach towards self. Reiki energy takes its course to reach to the deepest level of our issues. And then clears out all that is not allowing us to function at the best of our capabilities. The dysfunction or illness has taken many years to build up. All the memories and traumas associated with the issues we are dealing with also have a security blanket around it. These security blankets are called trigger which keeps surfacing to remind us unconsciously to not to venture into certain areas, or to not take any actions to keep us away from the painful memories.
Letting go of those traumas, creating new patterns & memories takes time and can be painful. It is cathartic in nature. And it does bring many emotions on the forefront. If we allow the energy flow in our lives, it may be uncomfortable in the beginning. But I can guarantee it’s definitely peaceful, joyous, wondrous, and magical by the end of it.
What you can do at conscious level
If you have been taking Reiki healing sessions or have been attuned into Reiki and that process has brought in discomfort in your life. Start looking for signs, possibilities and understand where they could have come from. What are the patterns you have been carrying, what are the fears you have developed over a period of the time? What is it that’s actually happening within you? There will be many layers of your personality which will start to reveal itself to you in the due course
Only if you allow yourself to clear out layers of old you and welcome the possibilities and wonders of New YOU. You will see many happy changes within you.
Ask for the guidance from the Universe and be assured that it will be given to you.
