We may find
ourselves in a job we dont like, a relationship that no longer
feels supportive of our best interests, or other situations that
undermine our health, energy or self-confidence. We wonder how we
got there. At the same time we arent sure what to do and feel
that there are no positive alternatives.
One of the
most important, yet least explained, benefits of Reiki is its ability
to guide your life in a way that is exactly right for you. When
you focus Reiki on difficult situations in your life, guidance about
what to do comes more easily. Or it may inspire a change in attitude
or belief about your situation. Suddenly, you see your condition
from a fresh perspective, one which reveals a previously unseen
course of action leading to a more positive result. For many practitioners,
the flow of Reiki has helped them develop and strengthen parts of
their character, enabling them to deal with difficult challenges
in a more positive way. Reiki not only provides the necessary information,
but also the right kind of personal energy to take the needed action.
Our lives are
created from the effects of all the decisions and actions we have
taken, not only in this life, but in past lives as well. Every action
has an effect which eventually comes back to us. If we adopt the
philosophy and accept that fact that ultimately, we are responsible
for everything we experience in life, we will be centered in our
power and be better able to create positive and lasting change in
are actually our own actions coming full circle. Use the wisdom
and love of Reiki and you will be able to more easily take responsibility
for them. Reiki will guide you to heal and balance the energy in
a way that is healthy for you and everyone involved. This prevents
the fostering of additional negative actions on your part and breaks
the vicious downward spiral that only leads to deeper levels of
the disempowered victim state. These seemingly negative experiences
contain important lessons for us in fact, they are exactly
the lessons we need to learn in order to progress on our spiritual
path! There are no accidents.
learning Reiki I moved to California and began an NLP practice.
Things went well for a while, but after a year or so I found myself
with no money. I called my parents and asked them if they could
loan me the money I needed to keep my practice going. A week later
they had an answer. They could not loan me any money, but I could
come back to Detroit and live with them. They thought it was a great
solution as they had been wanting me to come home for a long time.
To me it was the worst thing I could imagine. I had moved away from
Detroit to get away from them. Having to move from California to
Detroit to live with my parents was an overwhelming thought. I was
forty years old. I had no money. I had lots of negative feelings
about my parents and in fact felt they were the cause of most of
my problems. I did not think I could do it.
began sending Reiki to the situation and began meditating about
it. The Reiki energy allowed me to think more clearly and I was
directed to think about the responsibility I had for my situation
in life and for my own growth. I knew that many of our issues have
come from our parents. The father usually effects ones issues with
career, money, responsibility, discipline etc. and the mother effects
ones issues with relationships, nurturing, intuition and creativity
among other things. I also knew that if one could restimulate ones
issues, thus bringing them up to the surface, they could more easily
be dealt with and healed. I came to the conclusion that although
it would be very difficult, moving back with my parents would also
be a great opportunity for deep healing to take place. With the
help of Reiki, I decided to accept my parents invitation and move
in with them. I also decided I would maintain a positive, optimistic
attitude and be actively looking for opportunities to heal so I
could learn the lessons life was presenting to me as quickly as
situations did come up, but with the help of Reiki, I was able to
turn them into healing and learning experiences. I lived with my
parents for nine months and was able to heal several major issues.
After moving out, but staying in the area, I continued to work on
our relationship and over a period of years, things became much
more loving and understanding between us. This has greatly contributed
to my happiness in other areas of life as well.
experiences took place because of my move back to Detroit. There
was a larger spiritual community in Detroit than what I had imagined
and I met many people with similar interests who were supportive.
Reiki directed me to begin sharing my experiences in metaphysics
with others. I began writing articles for the local metaphysical
paper and teaching classes in spiritual development. Eventually
I met a Reiki master who was charging a very reasonable fee for
Reiki master training. I took her training and began teaching Reiki
classes. This lead to the development of the Center and the expansion
of my career. Reiki helped me step by step to change a personal
crisis into a fulfilling purposeful life.
to connect with our spiritual path are continually coming to us
through our every day experiences. All we need to do is recognize
them. Allow Reiki to guide you and its gentle energy will help you
learn the lesson and release you from the need to revisit the negative
experiences again. At the same time, you will move forward on your
spiritual path. However, if you project blame for your problems
on others, and choose to act like a victim, your misinterpretations
will block the flow of energy and make it virtually impossible to
get good guidance. When one is in victim consciousness it
is very difficult to create positive outcomes.

of yourself which are not deeply healed. Reiki can guide you through
this process, supplying the needed understanding and the healing.
