I have written so many articles about the wonder of Reiki and my experiences with this amazing life force energy that heals physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This energy comes from our Creator, the Source of all living things. That’s why it’s so powerful. It always goes exactly where it needs to go and does exactly what needs to be done for the recipients’ highest good. It’s Diving Timing in action.
Just like you, I have many thoughts throughout the day. Right before I started writing this article, I was wondering whether or not I might write another fictional book. The title, “Doubting Thomas” kept coming to mind. I have no idea why; it just did. Thomas was going to be my lead character’s name. Then, I googled, “Doubting Thomas Book” and a gazillion different books popped up. So much for titles. I could probably write another fictional book. But, why would I do that when Reiki gives me so many opportunities to write about the real-life experiences that I get to be a part of. It’s so humbling.
I get to witness Reiki’s healing touch every time I share the energy with another soul or situation. I also get to see what it does for me. My childlike wonder of Reiki is stronger than ever because of what I have seen it do for me through recent self-healing sessions. Reiki helps me stay balanced, grounded and full of positive energy. My wife always says, “I wish you could feel the hum like I do when you give me a treatment.”
Reiki will definitely keep you humming along, singing a happy song. People in traffic today were treated to my pure joy as I listened to the Motown Channel on satellite radio. Lord have mercy I heard a lot of great songs today as I drove through my mountain town shaking my head as close as I could get to the rhythm of the song. James Brown even came on and I was feeling good! My vibration was high and my mood was light.
Just recently, I started doing some new things with the energy that has taken my experiences to an even higher level. Call it Reiki. Call it hands on healing. Call it prayer. Call it what you want. But there is no ignoring the incredible power of this healing energy. Reiki is the highest form of unconditional love and always brings three things to every situation – peace, love and hope. We humans like those three things, regardless of what you might have read lately.
I was first attuned to Reiki eight years ago. Believe me when I say that the fact that it even happened is nothing short of a miracle. I’ll save that story for another time. Today, I know so much more than I did then. At the time, I didn’t even know what I didn’t know yet. But my fascination with Reiki today remains at a sky high level. There is always something new to learn.
Our world needs healing and thankfully Reiki continues to grow around the globe. We need Reiki – now more than ever. The beauty of Reiki is that anyone can do it! That’s right! You can do it too. If you are interested in self-healing as well as helping others heal, consider taking a class. Your life will never be the same. Trust me. God has big plans for you. Tap into this energy, release things that are holding you back and enjoy the ride.
Doubting Thomas? It was just a thought and I let it go. I’ve learned to do that with a lot of things. Reiki has helped me replace any negative energy with a new hum and a higher vibration. For that, I am eternally grateful.
