When we look at ourselves in the mirror we see a physical form which we call our body. We are programmed from birth to believe that this body is the totality of who we are. When we are unwell we think it is a part of our body that needs fixing. So we either use home remedies or go to see a doctor. If you go to see the doctor you will most likely be given some sort of medication to fix the symptom or you may end up needing surgical intervention. Which I am not criticising having undergone two life-saving surgical interventions myself.
However, conventional medical treatment and most alternative/complimentary therapies focus on symptoms and of course the physical body. Which is ok, BUT, we are not just a physical body. We are in fact, according to many quantum physicists, ninety-nine per cent energy, what we see in the mirror is an illusion. So what is this energy or to be more precise life force. Life force is the creative force of all things including us. It is an energy that has intelligence, it represents unconditional love, inner peace and happiness, balance and harmony, compassion and forgiveness. It is who we truly are . In order for us to experience what we call being a human we need a physical body to function in this third dimension that we live in.
From birth we are exposed to either negative or positive, thoughts, feeling and emotions as we are gradually programmed like a computer , knowingly or unknowingly, by our parents, teachers and society and then controlled by rules and regulations throughout every aspect of our life. As a result of this many people live their lives for the most part in a state of negativity. As an example the vast majority of people hate their jobs or are unhappy in their relationships and of course many people struggle financially to make ends meet. Media news is unlikely to make us feel happy as they pour out doom and gloom aided and abetted by politicians.
All of this negativity creates on an individual level anger, even hatred, criticism and judgement of self and others much of which can lead to negative stress, depression, inner conflict at an emotional level and subsequently health problems. This negativity affects our physical body by creating energy blocks to our positive energy flow, IF WE ALLOW, it to happen. Science is beginning to acknowledge that unresolved emotional conflict is by far and away the biggest cause of most disease states. So going back to my earlier comments of treatment of illness I believe that it is essential that we remove those energy blocks caused by negative thoughts, feelings and emotions in order to allow the life force to flow again unimpeded. The question which I am often asked is "why if Life Force Energy is so good does it allow negative energy to take over in the first place". We are here to experience third dimensional life in a human form but we have free will and therefore we can choose which path to take through every aspect of our human life.
Obviously, the best path to take is a path that keeps us in a positive state of mind which allows the influence of the Life Force to flow easily. Rather than worry about healing self and others does it not make more sense to prevent disease?
So where does Reiki fit into all of this. Reiki IS Life Force. When we use Reiki either hands on or by distant methods it is important that we acknowledge this fact. Reiki comes from and is directed by the creative force of all things which I personally call the Source. When we use Reiki it is not necessary to focus on the physical location of the problem we simply focus on the wave energy body. This is most likely not the way that you were originally trained but with over thirty-five years experience behind me as a practitioner and teacher I have found it to be very effective.
The Heart Center is the love center and energetically it is much more powerful than the brain. The Heart center "knows", the brain simply relays what it is told. When we focus Reiki on the heart center with intent, eg. Dimensional heart or heart chakra we are treating the entire energy body which in turn creates a vibratory resonance at the physical level of Unconditional love , inner peace, and happiness, balance and harmony, compassion and forgiveness. Practiced on a daily basis , with the right understanding and intent, will help to change your whole perception about healing yourself and others . You will also find that your whole demeanour will change and the worlds problems will concern you less and less. Reiki first and foremost is about your own personal spiritual journey and experience. The more people that come to understand the power of Reiki the more the worlds problems will fade. If every politician in the world were to be attuned to Reiki then maybe we would not have so many issues that need to be resolved globally?
