This post by one of our dear reiki healer- Simple Khanna.. This article is her point of view on reiki
One of the posts from my friends on whatsapp reminded me of a prayer. During my school days, we would stand in a line during morning assembly and sing it, every morning. That’s how my day would start. It was boring….same prayer every day! We used to yawn and steal looks at each other with our hands folded and desperately waiting for the boring Morning Prayer to get over.
Then I remembered the toughest of times I have faced and how each time, I have sent out the same prayer ‘God, please help me’ to the Universe, and every time ‘God’ has sent help either in the form of a person or a news or just by giving me strength to handle it all. Prayers work.
Reiki teaches us the perfect way to pray. When we learn to invoke Reiki, we learn the value of belief, faith, love, higher values, respect, oneness and letting go.
The starting point of Reiki is the belief in existence of Reiki. Reiki exists, all around us, in us, in everyone and everything that we see. With this belief, we start our journey towards invoking the divine into our lives. We leave ourselves open to receiving Reiki with complete faith. We know that Reiki will do what is right for us. We learn to have faith. We learn to love something that cannot be seen. Gradually faith seeps into other areas of our lives. We learn to have faith in people around us, for things that are not obvious. We know that they are doing things out of love. We learn to incorporate trust.
While healing, we are taught to receive from higher chakras, crown preferably, so that we only focus on the pure divine consciousness. Gradually, Reiki lifts us from the lower chakras and we start to become more and more aware of our own higher values. We learn to be more generous, forgiving, understanding as we start knowing the world around us better. We learn that we are all from the same source and are drawing everything around us from the same divine source. And lastly, when we cut cords, we let go. We disconnect ourselves from the result after giving Reiki and leave it all to Reiki. We learn that all that is in our hands is to do and the result will be in our favour.
To heal or to manifest, we perform Reiki repeatedly, with same set of intentions, actions and affirmations. This way we reinforce our desires into and onto the universe. The more we do it, the more are the chances of our desires becoming realities.
Now that I think about it, performing the same prayer during my school days was a good idea. Whatever little part I was able to focus on, I am sure it sent out some good signals and I received goodness in return. Thank you Universe. Thank you Reiki.
