Can’t just “let it go”?
That’s because emotions
Aren’t like rocks you throw.
They’re more like drops
Of water that need to run through you.
So don’t let it go,
Let it flow.
When I think about healing, many words come to mind; letting go, vulnerability, loving release, conscious perspective, peaceful balance, freedom, and forgiveness. Healing is all of these things, but is not limited to those few expressions.
Healing is the softening of a hard space, like a rock on the shoreline that changes form over time. The hard edges of the rock are gradually worn smooth from the constant motion of the waves. Reiki acts as this gentle cleansing wave that softens those hard spaces within. Like water it has an incredibly strong, yet gentle capacity to invoke change.
Recently I have been reflecting on the subject of deep healing. I have been hearing a lot of discussion within the healing community expressing a similar theme. Many have been going through a big transition and felt the drastic uprooting of emotions with exposed awareness. With this new awareness arises opportunities for healing. This is where people would come to me and ask for Reiki, and they ask to heal from these experiences and traumas, moments that left a mark on their bodies and spirits. And it has made me wonder. What are we asking to be healed from?
So how does Reiki enter the space of deep healing? Just as sweet surrender to your life’s journey enhances the natural flow of it, releasing all expectation and judgment in Reiki, realigns the natural flow of one’s true path in healing. Reiki will always go to the areas in greatest need of healing. If we release all expectations and limitations we may put on the experience, the healing that occurs can be life changing.
Similar to the Tao System of the complete recognition of body-mind-spirit connection, a Reiki session invites you to be completely present with one’s self. Being fully present allows you to release your emotions, thoughts and feelings, past present and future. In this space of freedom, we find miraculous, conscious flow with the source. In this freedom there is space for the unlimited and profound power of healing through all time and space.
Rei is the invisible power or source of it all. Rei is sacredness, and blessing. Rei possesses an infinite power.
Ki is the basis of all energy healing. Ki is the vital energy of the earth. Ki is Breath. Ki is the unseen energy of the universe.
Together Rei-ki enhances your healthy vibration of energy and helps find that peaceful place within that is in alignment with your greatest, purest energy flow. It is a state of balance, and grace.
So, hold space for yourself to feel, take a deep breath, and remind yourself of the amazing things you’ve accomplished, how far you’ve come. Invite yourself to pay awareness to your body, and if you store any hard spaces within you, let them soften. Invite yourself to forgive. Allow yourself to step into your grace.
With lots of love,
