Guérison spirituelle:  comprendre le Reiki

Nous vivons sur la planète terre qui nous fait un grand cadeau: la vie. La terre est donc notre mère. 

Chaque cellule de notre corps est crée à partir tissu de la terre.   Nous partageons la terre avec des millions de microorganismes. Le corps humain est recouvert, nourrit et supporté par notre mère terre. Il est temps de reconnaître la mère terre pour toute sa générosité et son abondance. 

Nos maladies et débalancements débutent dans notre sphère spirituelle et descendent dans notre corps Collectivement, en tant qu'humain, forme de vie, source d'énergie, nous avons un grand pouvoir de guérison.

Spiritual Healing:
Understanding Reiki

"We don't deserve this planet."  

hen contemplating the contents of this article, I heard this statement by a CBC radio program host.

He had exclaimed this as a final comment to the guest speaker who, as an architect, was discussing how foolishly large and grandiose our domestic dwellings have become. It was the architect's belief that human beings have deteriorated to the point at which we are abusing the earth, our Mother Earth, simply to demonstrate our wealth and our success.

"EXACTLY", I thought, and my head instantly filled with words for this article!

The Earth is not ours, although we somehow believe it to be ours to use and abuse. Mother Earth has given us the greatest gift, the most thoughtful gift, that of herself in all of her glory, and what have we done?

"This earth is my sister; I love her daily grace, her silent daring, and how loved I am, how we admire this strength in each other , all that we have lost, all that we have suffered, all that we know. We are stunned by the beauty and I do not forget: what she is to me, what I am to her." Susan Griffin

What has happened?

Let us take a look at the 4 aspects of the community - politics, economics, social order, and culture. When in balance our economic philosophy is that of sharing; our political philosophy is honesty; our social perspective is caring; and our cultural philosophy is that of respect. We can create this situation when our actions are based in "love".

When our actions are "fear based", we create imbalance in the world. Our economic philosophy is greed; our political philosophy becomes dishonesty; our social perspective is selfishness and lack of caring; and our cultural philosophy is disrespect.

When we stand on this earth we are standing upon our Mother. Every cell in our body is created out of the tissue of the earth. We share this earth with billions of other tiny microorganisms. The human body is covered, fed, and supported by Mother Earth. Our clothes are produced from the plants and oils of the earth. Our food is a gift from Mother Earth. Creatures of the earth give their flesh so that we can live.

It is time to recognize Mother Earth for her abundance and her generosity. It is time to return to the basic principles of humanity and release the arrogance that causes us to take from our Mother.

How can we heal Mother Earth?

Collectively, as human beings, as life forms, as energy sources, we have tremendous healing power. But first we must heal ourselves so that we are then freely able to give of ourselves completely, in love, not in fear.

Health/disease or balance/imbalance starts in the spiritual (energetic) realm and descends into the body. Energy moves from the less dense to the more dense, with thoughts and feelings being less dense and words and actions most dense. It is important to consider thoughts and feelings as the energetic road of health or disease. When we address the spiritual aspects of disease, we are seeking to alleviate the disease by correcting the energetic patterns at the source of the illness.

When we create our reality from fear our prayers are for things - to look good, to have great wealth. When we pray for things we see God/Creator/Great Spirit as a parent and want reality to be fair, safe, and good based on a physical world model. Thinking and praying in this form blocks guidance because we are saying, "I will only accept what comes in the way I am expecting it to come". The result is that we short change ourselves.

If we are creating in love with faith we are making a statement to guidance that "I know/I believe you have my best interest at heart; however it may look". This type of prayer frees us from the confines of the should(s) of the mind and allows us to receive the miracles of spirit beyond space and time. Health/balance comes from a positive, present relationship with our self. Self-esteem is based on being able to trust our word to our self. A balanced person is one whose thoughts, feelings, words and actions are all in agreement. This is the basis for energetic medicine, which is by definition beyond space and time and facilitates awareness in the present.

The Universal Life Force Energy enters through the crown chakra (at the top of the head) and passes through the upper chakras to the heart and the solar plexus.

Reiki as a method of healing

Reiki is one of the many methods of spiritual healing. Reiki is energetic medicine. Reiki is an ancient form of hands-on-healing which was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the mid 1800's. Reiki passes from the practitioner (giver) to the receiver, working on many different levels. Reiki is never sent, it is drawn through the channel. The Universal Life Force Energy enters through the crown chakra (at the top of the head) and passes through the upper chakras to the heart and the solar plexus. The rest then passes through the practitioner's arms and hands to the receiver's body.

During a Reiki healing, the practitioner places hands upon the receiver (or up to 6 inches away) with the intent for healing to occur, and the energy begins flowing. Energy is channeled through the chakras (our energy centers). Amazingly, the energy manages its own flow to and within the receiver, drawing the exact amount of energy required for the healing. The practitioner is simply the channel! The word healing means "the return to greater wholeness". We all have an "ideal form" which is the highest and clearest expression of who we really are. Pain or disease occurs when there is a deviation between our current physical form and our ideal form. We heal to bring our physical form into alignment with our ideal form. The level of reality at which Reiki operates is the underlying energy structure of matter. The physical matter that we see around us is actually a solidified form of energy. Anything can be changed at the level where Reiki functions because all is fluid-like and very malleable. Emotional difficulties can be healed, just as physical difficulties, since emotional issues are even more directly present in the energy structures. With all healing, Reiki and otherwise, the goal is to determine the limitation, recognize the pattern, recognize where it came from, and let it go. Reiki accomplishes this by providing the receiver with enough energy to step above to see all of this and to have the courage to let go of it.
