Reiki Heals. Do You?

Hit a bi-i-i-g pothole while driving and what happens?  There goes your wheel alignment!  It doesn't matter whether you had that alignment yesterday or a year ago:  if it's messed up it's messed up, and you are going to need another.

Reiki is like that wheel alignment, it occurs to me.  It works.  It does the job, balancing, clearing, healing.  But what happens after a treatment, after the client leaves the table?

A surgeon can cut out a lung cancer, but what if the patient continues to chain smoke after surgery?  The patient or client must act to support their wellness if they wish to maintain it.   Persist in doing what supports your imbalance, disease, or illness however and you will experience more imbalance, disease, illness. 

Collaboration is the operative word!  You have the power to be well, right now.  And Reiki is there--here--to assist as needed.

New Moon, New Start

Today's New Moon energies can be like wind at our backs if we make use of them.
"This year's Pisces New Moon is especially powerful for many reasons. Just as Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the next sign, Aries, is the beginning of the new astrological year.  Since we are in an inverted moon cycle ...the seeds we plant at this Pisces New Moon will bear fruit during the next Full Moon [in 2 weeks, on March 27]... What has your soul been longing for?   Plant the seed of that desire--Mars the warrior the very last degree of Pisces at this New Moon...will help you." (source)
“The Pisces New Moon message is to follow our heart. Only the heart can make our dreams come true. We need to stay out of the ego mind. We are to live from our heart. “ 
~Copyright 2013 ~Kelley Rosano
"Take just five minutes for yourself today, to place new intentions. Quiet the distractions around you, closing your eyes and ears to the outside world. Center on your inner energy, aware of how far your heart has traveled to reach this point in your life. Compare your feelings from four weeks ago, to this moment in time." (source)
What has your heart and soul been longing for?  Dare to dream it.  Now.

Unwelcome Energy

A client wrote me recently with a question.  She is considering Reiki training and wondered if  " allowing [Reiki] energy to flow in, a negative or unwanted energy might also be able to enter."  It's a good question, and a perfectly valid concern. 

The fact is, we live in an energy soup:  all sorts of energies are affecting us all the time.   We can't so much as look at a person without our energy entering them.  You've experienced this when you've felt eyes penetrating from behind you and it caused you to turn around.  Enter a room where an argument has just occurred and you will sense tension in the air.

Situations like these aren't particularly bothersome.  But there are times when an energy latches on:  something enters and stays, and it interferes with our well being.  All of us are prey to errant, unwanted energies entering our energy fields just walking around in life.  Reiki can clear these disturbances.  My client was reassured to learn that opening to Reiki energy could only benefit her.

With or without Reiki, we can only be victims of the world of energy when we fail to exercise our privilege to participate with it, to actively engage it.  The range from novice to master in doing so is but a matter of degrees. Protection from--or intrusion by--unwanted energies can even be as near as your next thought.  To quote author and entrepreneur Mike Dooley, "Thoughts become things:  choose them wisely!"

Story Telling

This message presented itself during a recent client treatment, a client with a long-standing complaint.  I share it here because it relates to so many of us.  It is good to be reminded that whatever it is that dogs us, that follows us around despite our best intentions, remedies, advancements in consciousness and etcetera, is there by our invitation. 
You cannot have relief from a story
you keep telling.
The refrain of our complaint--not enough money, work, health, love--is actually our key.  It either keeps us confined or gives us our freedom, depending upon how we use it.  Lament it oh no, not you again and nothing changes.  Recognize it as key, take that key in hand and use it, and voila:  freedom!

We are always our own jailers.  We are always possessed of the choice to either keep a complaint around by keeping its story going, or setting it free, and ourselves along with it.  We just cannot keep eating horsehair expecting it to be anything other than dry dry dry.  Well, we can, but it won't do us much good!
