You are the sum total of all your experiences, and Reiki can help heal those that don’t serve you anymore
As human beings, our fascination with past lives will probably never go away. Does your previous life as a servant contribute to your less-than stellar self-esteem today? Does your love of beautiful things come from when you lived as royalty? Do certain writers, actors or stars of yesterday seem to speak directly to you? Perhaps more interestingly, when you just know the person you just met and feel an instant connection, does that stem from a past life too?
Healthy roots can bring nourishment to a tree.
Luckily, with people seeing mainstream movies like Cloud Atlas, we as a culture are becoming more and more familiar with the concept of past lives. The beauty of Reiki, (particularly the long distance healing symbol) is that you can send Reiki to your past lives and watch your world transform right before your eyes.
Because we know that you deserve to live the life you came here for, even if previous experiences (either in this lifetime or others) have clouded that vision a bit. Time to get your confidence in all that you are with Reiki!
In our Reiki II Online Course, you receive a Reiki attunement that includes the distance healing symbol. This powerful Reiki symbol, handed down to Dr. Mikao Usui from Spirit or Source itself, allows you as the Reiki practitioner to send the healing energy across space and time. Which means you can definitely send it to yourself as you were in past lives, as well as the soul part of you that lives eternal.
Only your soul comes with you…
So, if you know the Distance Healing Symbol and are ready, here’s how you can heal your past lives with Reiki energy:
- Start your Reiki past life session as you would any other. Ask that the Reiki only work for the highest good of all concerned, set sacred space and bring in your higher self and your guides (especially your Reiki guide!) But for this session, also ask that you be allowed to view your Akashic records, and that you only be shown what will benefit you in this lifetime. (Just in case you’re not familiar with your Akashic records, the Akashic records is a library if you will of every single thought, experience and belief you have ever held in any of your lifetimes. A number of cultures reference the Akashic records, and they hold our “karma”, which can be both positive and negative.)
Heal yourself with Reiki, all of you.
Viewing your Akashic records in a past-life Reiki healing session takes practice, so go very easy on yourself and know that whatever arises is absolutely perfect. You may see yourself in a library session, images or feelings may arise, or you may see absolutely nothing. Still, you can trust that the Reiki will be healing even if your mind is blank. Everyone’s experience is different.
- Whatever comes up for you, go with it. Allow the images, feelings or sounds to come and go as they wish. After a while, many Reiki practitioners start to piece together images of someone they automatically know is them. If a person flashes through your mind, ask who it is and the first person who pops into your head will likely be them. (We incarnate in soul groups, which means we usually incarnate with the same people over and over again to balance karma and learn our lessons together.)
Reiki your past to live your future.
Regardless of whether the experiences are loving and feel good, or scary and sad, stay with them. They are being shown to you for a reason, and you need not know what that is for you to heal. These memories are coming up so you can feel them, experience them, process them and then let them go. Just think of all the room for positivity you’ll have afterward!
- Draw with your hand or visualize in your head the long-distance healing symbol, and send love, healing and positive energy to yourself and that situation. With this symbol, you can clear out limiting beliefs about yourself that are hindering your full potential in this lifetime. If you know the Karma Clearing Symbol or the DNA Healing Symbols we teach in our Reiki II and Reiki Master Level Class, throw those in as well. Why not?
Free your mind with Reiki… and the rest will follow.
You will just know when your Reiki session is complete, and finish the session as you normally would. You may want to write down any memories that you had while they are still fresh in your mind.
A wonderful book to read about past lives is Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss.
So there you have it. Try and see! You may just find (as we did) that by getting rid of old emotional beliefs and patterns you hold from previous lives, your life will change dramatically. You will understand your soul, and hopefully have that much more compassion and love for yourself. So have fun meeting you…
This is a follow-up post to What Reiki Training Classes Can Do You For You.
The shining light of Reiki
Because even with the countless benefits of taking an in-person or online Reiki class, you should know that there are some things that won’t be solved solely by taking the course and receiving the attunement.
Now, we are not saying not to take a Reiki class. Quite the contrary! The whole world should be attuned to Reiki. However, we have seen a phenomenon recently with healing modalities such as Reiki where people love the feeling of feeling good, but deny and suppress any bad feelings as being “not of the light”.
Reiki classes will shine light on your shadow
This can become dangerous, as literally everyone has negative feelings and beliefs that could stand to be healed. And it makes sense why we do this, too, because who in their right minds wants to feel bad?
However, covering up negative beliefs and ignoring them with healing modalities like Reiki will never heal those wounds. In order to truly heal, we must uncover them and deal with them so they can truly get better.
Taking a Reiki class and receiving an attunement will give you the opportunity to look at your issues. The intelligent Reiki energy will stir up those emotions. However, it is still up to you to look at them and see them for what they truly are. Emotions caused by beliefs about yourself and the world around you that you formed when you were a child.
Since our rational mind doesn’t really form until we reach the age of 7, a lot of the beliefs you hold were created before you had the ability to reason. Therefore, you assumed that everything that happened was your fault, or that the world was a certain way because of your experiences.
The Reiki light sets the stage for your performance of healing yourself
Therefore, you should never blame yourself for holding these beliefs. You are doing the best you can. We all are.
At the same time, however, you are being given a gift when your issues move from your subconscious mind to your conscious mind. Deal with them, and your life will be so much better for it. You’ll see.
So, remember, while Reiki training classes are life-changing and life-affirming and all that jazz, there is one thing they cannot do: heal you of their own accord. Reiki classes and training programs can assist you in the process, but only you can heal yourself. So why not do it?
Yes, your stuff will come up. It is coming up for a reason, though, so you can heal it and let it go from your physical body.
You see, the saying that “time heals all wounds” is not entirely true in our book. While the strength and force of the pain does diminish over time as we go through the grieving process of the loss of whatever wounded us, the emotions that we don’t process from the wound get stored in our body and can remain there indefinitely.
These emotions being lodged in our bodies doesn’t come without consequences, however. Emotions that we don’t process get tucked away and cause physical illness, sometimes ten, twenty years down the road.
That is why the best way to ensure true body health for yourself is to feel your emotions as they arise. This is what children do, and once the feeling passes they go on about their business as if nothing was wrong.
How to feel your emotions as they arise
Feeling your emotions sounds easier said than done, doesn’t it? We live in a society where we’ve been taught to deny how we feel, to be strong no matter what and act like everything is okay even when we don’t necessarily feel that way.
But with practice, feeling your feelings becomes easier. Let’s say you feel bad when something happens. Unless it is a life crisis that everyone deals with such as death of a loved one or loss of a relationship, your reason for feeling bad probably has more to with your beliefs around the situation than the truth of what is going on.
So a great way to help yourself stay with the feelings is to recognize that you feel this way because of false beliefs you adopted as a child. These beliefs are not true or real, even if the emotions they cause surely feel that way!
Also, have compassion for yourself for feeling the way you do. It makes perfect sense, especially given these false beliefs you adopted when you were growing up and didn’t know any better. Compassion for yourself is really the key.
Reiki classes help you break free from false beliefs about yourself
So, in a nutshell, Reiki classes and training programs can do a great deal in improving your mental and physical health, allowing you to live more fully in the truth of the beautiful person that you are. Not too shabby for a healing art, eh?
