I believe that each person has the potential to tap into their own healing energy. Most of us go through our lives not even thinking about how we feel on a deeper level or how our energy is used. If this is starting to sound very "out there" to you, then let me try to clarify this for you with some examples:
If you are having a great day, you will project to the world a happy demeanor. The energy that you put forth is one of confidence, happiness, acceptance of self and others and love. That energy directed to yourself can bring on feelings of contentment, peace, calmness and joy. That energy can be felt by others as a positive energy.
Now on the other hand, if you are having a terrible day, full of woes and mishaps, you will project to the world an unhappy demeanor. The energy that you put forth is one of anger, unhappiness, irritation and perhaps even fear. That energy directed to yourself can bring on physical illness such as headaches, muscle strain and stiffness and/or exacerbate an existing illness. It can also prompt a negative mental response such as sadness, irritability and moodiness. That energy can be felt by other people as a negative energy.
So How Does All Of This Tie Into My 3R's of Reiki To Help You?
As your Reiki practitioner I use my skills and knowledge to channel the energy that is all around us. (Known to Reiki healers as the universal light energy) and direct that energy to flow into your body using various hand positions directly on or above your body. Your body then takes in that energy, and with my help it is directed to the various energy points in your body (commonly called Chakras) where it will finally naturally settle itself in the areas of your body that needs it the most.
The 3 R's Of Reiki:
Step 1~ Realize: Realize the energy that you possess, both positive and negative. Neither is to be feared or placed higher than the other. The two balance each other out and you need both to be able to live. It is when there is an imbalance of the energy that people suffer. Realize this and you are on your way to healing.
Step 2~ Respect: Embracing the energy you feel and letting it work for you. Respect is truly earned. if you fight the process of Reiki healing, like any process it will not work as well for you. Imagine Reiki healing as if you were fighting the current of a river. Yes you could probably fight your way across it and make it to the other side, exhausted and no doubt scratched up from your trials, but surely would it not be easier to simply go with the river? Let it take you where it needs to go and trust that you will get there. Respect the process and the results are far more effective and less tumultuous.
Step 3~ Release: Allow yourself to heal. Allow yourself to breathe deeply, feel and grow. We live in such a fast paced world which doesn't seem to allow anyone to stop and take a moment to release. There never seems to be any time to focus on our inner self. Release is just that. Let go. Allow the energy to flow. Allow your muscles to relax and your lungs to fully breathe. Release your tension and constant inner dialogue and trust that your body and your mind can center itself, if you allow it to happen.
