How Healing Happens--or Doesn't

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: 
Reiki works.  Every single energy treatment is powerful and effective--at least to the extent that it is invited and allowed.  A lot happens, every time--whether or not the client feels it.  As an energy sensitive, I am privy to what happens.  And because I know that the healee can "undo" the benefit of a treatment in as little time as it takes to rise from the table, I think it's important to share what transpired so the client can have the chance to actively participate in retaining and maintaining the benefit of the treatment.

We are each minute supporting or undermining our well being according to our choices, thoughts and beliefs.  I've heard it said that the body resolves (cures, if you will) myriad nascent ailments, illnesses and diseases--cancers included--without the help of doctors or remedies, all the time.  I would say it does this without our help even, but it's not so.  We help by placing our consciousness in a beneficial posture.

What am I talking about?  Well, I could elaborate, but I came across these wise and eloquent words as spoken by Abraham on precisely this topic.  Since they articulate so well what I might have said, I will offer them to you instead:
Your sophisticated physical body exists because of the intelligence of your cells. And the intelligence of your cells exists because of their Connection to Source Energy.

When doctors and scientists try to find cures for diseases without taking into consideration the Vibrational relationship between the physical Being and Source Energy, they are looking for cures in all the wrong places. If the resistance that disallowed the Well-Being to begin with is not released, it will show up in the form of another and another disease.

Your cells, because of their connection to the intelligence of Source Energy, know exactly what to do in order to become the incredible variety of functioning cells in your magnificent physical body. And in the absence of the hindrance that is caused by your resistant [nonbeneficial] thought, that communication stays open to clear, up-to-the-moment interaction, keeping your physical body at peak and perfect performance.

In the absence of [undermining] emotion—and therefore [with] the allowance of complete alignment and communication with Source Energy—your physical body can reclaim its balance and recover from any imbalance. And once balance has resumed, it is easy to maintain with consistently good-feeling thoughts.

--- Abraham
Note:  [bracketed] words are mine, as I don't support the notion of "negative" thoughts or emotions.

Healing happens at the source of the condition, or not at all.

No Past, No Future

Seagull walking on beach
One continuous present, time as a construct versus reality: I have understood these concepts intellectually--even deeply so. But my understanding remained intellectual until relatively recently. It is one thing to know or say there is no past or future, to say "there is no time;" it is another to live it. Reiki grounds my understanding in direct experience.

Consider these words I encountered while reading on Kabbalistic thought as it relates to the concept of time:
Only by transcending the boundaries of "created time," even in its profoundest sense as a continuous present moment, can we approach the true nature of reality.
So what is the true nature of reality?

Last week I felt a crushed leg under my hands during a Reiki treatment--not the physical leg, but the... energetic leg--a "previous" leg, I presumed. Was it the leg of a "past" life? Might it have been the leg of a "future" life? Such distinctions are irrelevant in the continuous now, in "no time." What was and is relevant is that my client's leg needed Reiki now. Perceiving the crushed leg, I knew why.

I know it sounds peculiar and perhaps dramatic to say I sensed a crushed leg under my hands, especially when the leg I touched is not crushed at all. But what can I tell you? I don't go looking for such phenomena. Reiki simply knows what It's doing, and when something like this shows up, it shows up for a good reason.

My client is no stranger to metaphysical phenomena, thankfully. So when I share my finding with her afterwards, she gets it. Together we make the connection to "current" trouble with that leg, in this "present" lifetime. I watch something go "click" in her energy field. That click is the injury pattern becoming unnecessary--expiring, so to speak. It needn't recur any longer. Awareness has replaced blindness. Consciousness is awake to something it was ignorant of just moments earlier. Conditions and beliefs can--and do!--play themselves out again and again in the background over many lifetimes. But once a pattern is revealed, the jig is up!

Relating to the "past" as present puts a whole different slant on healing. The components of "previous"--and even "future"--lives become integral to our well being now. And in the timeless now, we have direct access to them all.
