Why Reiki? Why do energy work? What is energy work? If you are still not sure if Reiki energy work is for you, or how often you need to have a session, then please read on!
Energy is everything. Everyone and everything is made of energy. Energy makes your heart beat, your mind work, your body function. Energy helps us think, it helps us move. Energy is collected, shared, and released within our bodies. Our physical bodies, our mental bodies, our emotional bodies, our spiritual bodies, our astral bodies, our etheric bodies, and more! Now we have all heard the term “emotional baggage”. And, we don’t want to carry around that emotional baggage. Well, how do you let it go? Many of us have not been taught how to let it go, to release that old emotional baggage, or emotional energy. We also have mental baggage, physical baggage, spiritual baggage, etc. This baggage, or old energy, hits us when we are triggered. We feel hurt by someone else’s words or actions. We feel angered when someone does “fill in the blank” to us. We tell ourselves “it’s because I’m old” or “it’s happening because it’s in my genes, my family history, etc.” Well, do you really want to carry around your own baggage, let alone that of your family’s and past life families’??? Reiki energy work can help with so many things, including stress relief (baggage), helping to calm us down (stems from old baggage), helps us to think more clearly (old baggage), helps us to be more energized (old baggage weighs us down) and more. The Reason for Reiki is to release old baggage.
We have layers upon layers of old energy (old baggage) that we have collected from this lifetime, this particular ancestral line in this lifetime, plus former lifetimes and former ancestral lines! We have also been exposed in all our lifetimes to multiple layers of collecting, sharing and keeping old baggage! All of these layers need to come off of us, to help us heal. We need to release these layers. When we start energy work, the layers we can release, allow more layers to rise up for release the next time, and then more layers to rise up for release the next time, and so on and so on.
Have you ever judged someone else? Have you been judged? Those are old layers of energy that need to be released. We are judging something in them we do not like in ourselves, yet we may not realize what that trait is within us. We just judge. And, when we are judged, we can become angry, sad, annoyed, frustrated, etc. Well, those are old layers of baggage we need to release. The more we have judged or have been judged that creates emotional baggage, or mental baggage, or spiritual baggage, and so on, the more we have to release! An energy worker can help you discover triggers to your old baggage, and help you release them.
Have you ever thought you have forgiven someone for something, only to find out that they are still pissing you off when you think about them or the situation? Or a smilier situation comes up? Or that you still feel hurt? Or perhaps a new person in your life pushes that old button, or causes an old wound to pop back up. This is old baggage leading to new baggage. It’s old wounds coming back up to our consciousness because they want to be released. Or in other words, we have been carrying that old energy within us, as we have not truly let it go. OR, there are more layers from the past and past lives and past ancestral lines of energy that are coming up for release that are similar to that same emotion, feeling, etc! More layers to be released. Anything that triggers you in any way, needs to be released. If you feel someone has done something to you, then something needs to be released. Life isn’t happening to us, it’s happening for us. It’s happening to help us see the baggage within us we need to let go.
I have recently been told by a seer (because I am also full of energy layers that need to be released, therefore, I do energy work on myself, and also go to others for energy work on myself) that I have had 18,000 lives. 18,000! That is A LOT of lives. And A LOT of energy. I have always believed in our souls having multiple lives to learn and grow. During all these lives, we make karma. Karma needs to be released. Karma is old baggage. Karma is old energy that has patterned our thoughts, opinions and belief systems, along with societal understandings and religious beliefs of each and every lifetime. We have been programmed to believe certain things, and when we open up to new things, or are born into human form with others, we have been programmed to those ideas. All of these ideas are energy, swirling around in our heads, bodies, and energy system. Our entire energy system. When I mentioned we have been led to believe “it’s because of my family history”, we can change that mindset! We can change that energy! Our physical bodies have manifested those beliefs, either in this lifetime or other lifetimes. (Akashic Records Work, is also a form of energy work, and I have learned a great deal of my old lifetimes for myself and others, which can help us in this healing journey immensely! But, back to Reiki….). For instance, if you believe you have asthma because your “insert family member(s)” had it, then that is a programmed belief that has manifested itself. Because you have been taught to truly believe it. Guess what? You don’t have to believe it! I know, that is a mind blower. Scientists are always telling us what to believe, as are “experts” in any chosen field because of “research”. Well, let me tell you, for every one person who has research to back up Idea #1, there is someone else to back up Idea #2, which is completely different than Idea #1. Take the courtroom, for example. We have all seen and/or heard of the experts who testify. Well, many experts are paid to testify for either the defense or the defendant. They are paid for their “expert opinion”, while the other side has their “expert” with their “expert opinion”, which contradicts the other “expert”. Everyone has an opinion, thought or belief, which can be contradicted by another. It’s how we see the world and decipher the information provided to us. It’s our perception of the world based on our experiences which define our opinions, beliefs and thoughts. It’s the programs repeated over and over that define how we see the world. We can break these programs to open our eyes to a whole new way of being. We do this by grasping new beliefs by releasing old ones (energy or baggage).
So, how do you grasp that you don’t have to believe something, that you don’t have to manifest asthma? You start doing energy work, and continue doing energy work to release the thought pattern, along with the WHY of the asthma or some other issue you are currently dealing with or working through or hoping to heal. Working with someone else is always beneficial, as they can see things we might not be able to within ourselves, or ask the right questions, etc. When we understand the WHY, and understand where it came from, and feel it, then release it, we can heal ourselves. We can define a new perception and reality for ourselves.
The WHY of the manifestation is part of what energy works entails as well. Each dis-ease, illness, injury, etc, is a physical manifestation of old programmed beliefs, understandings and thoughts. And, those old programmed beliefs, understandings and thoughts are multi-layered. Each physical issue, has a cause. For example, my spine has curves in it, where the “Normal” spine does not. It curves differently in between my shoulder blades, where the heart chakra resides. Heart chakra has to do with many different things, including love of self, love of others, and others’ love for us. I have discovered, in this lifetime, I have had issues trusting love of others. Of being left out or forgotten. Of not being truly loved for who I am. Therefore, I created someone that I thought others would love. I became a people pleaser. I was nice to be liked, or loved. I avoided conflict as much as humanly possible because I thought it meant others would not like or love me, as how could I be nice in conflict? If I showed my true feelings, they would not love me, because I was not nice. I learned from past lives (Akashic Records) that I had a lot of lives where I was neglected, abandoned, abused, etc, by those who SHOULD have loved me. I carried that hurt and pain of not being loved in my heart chakra for many, many, many lifetimes. Hit the repeat button. Another life, similar issues. And, in this life it manifested physically in my spine. This physical manifestation was my sign that I needed to heal and release all of the layers of past lives of being hurt by loved ones in very those ways. I was also blessed with this lifetime with unconditional love of my parents. However, this same story played out in the relationships I attracted. People who were not really emotional available for one reason or another. This was all unconscious and subconscious patterned energy baggage. We attract what we are. It’s the Law of Energy. Like attracts like. So, I attracted those who also had some type of emotional abuse in their life or past lives which they needed to release and heal. Again in this lifetime, it manifested in my initiate relationships. And, those people were attracted to the person they thought I was, the one I was projecting so they would like me, and when they saw a side of me they didn’t like, well, let’s say that’s when the conflicts arose, causing the end of the relationship. There are multiple layers of energy issues associated with each of these relationships, in addition to the one I’ve mentioned. However, it is important to understand the incredible amount of layers of baggage with that ONE issue, let alone, layering all the issues on top of each other. Working with a Reiki Master, and doing energy work, helps us to understand the WHYs, whether they are physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
So, I’m sure you are starting to feel a bit suffocated with all of this layering! I understand. The healing journey and energy work is a long journey. But it is a journey worth doing! I know this as my belief, because I feel better! I feel lighter and more loved for who I am, and not because I’m just being nice. And, know this: The more often you work on yourself with Reiki energy and other forms of energy work, the more layers you can release, and the lighter you begin to feel as you start connecting all the dots of the WHYs and knowing you do not have to carry all that baggage around. You have the power to release as many layers as you are ready to let go. You have the power to do the work on yourself to heal. You have the power to choose to heal and the strength to do it. You have the power to heal you! Energy workers are here to help you heal yourself. It’s why I do what I do. Healing is part of our soul purpose, part of why we manifested as a human within the family we did, the issues we have and all our situations and experiences. These are the lessons we (our souls) have chosen to learn, the issues we (our souls) have chosen to release and heal and the experiences we (our souls) want. By simply deciding to be open to letting go of the old, you have started the journey. It’s time to keep going!
I have worked on myself and had multiple energy others work with me, and continue to do so. The more often you do it, the more you will become your authentic self. Our authentic selves are not our ego. Ego is our personality and is currently leading most of our lives from our old baggage. Release the ego issues, and then the ego no longer runs our lives. Our souls start to lead our lives. Our authentic selves are our souls. Our souls are here for this healing work and this journey. Our souls are pure Divine energy of Light. Divine Energy of Light includes Unconditional Love. It includes pure unconditional Joy, Peace, Harmony and Bliss. If we do not do healing energy work in this lifetime, well, that just gives you even more baggage to deal with the next time around. Similar to my relationships in this lifetime…each one was more challenging than the previous one, as my soul was really trying to get my attention to heal those issues! Once I truly awakened, I decided all of this baggage within me, some mine, and some not, was too heavy to carry around any more. Are you ready to stop carrying all your old baggage? Releasing the old baggage, allows us to be soul powered. It allows us to start living in Divine Unconditional Love, Joy, Peace, Harmony and Bliss. Does that sound good to you? Are you ready to awaken and “Become Soulfully Empowered”?
