One of the first things a person wants to do after their awakening is to begin to serve others. Many of the awakened people on the planet are natural healers and learn a method of energy manipulation called Reiki. While this form of healing can be powerful, it can also be detrimental to the recipient if the healer is not on the level of understanding and guidance of a higher level.
Reiki is a form of energy healing where the “universal energy” is passed through the hands of the healer to the recipient. The main benefit of such energy seems to be receiving energy when energy is lacking to a specific area. The only reason one would need to receive universal energy from another is if they have not remembered how to connect to the source of universal energy within themselves, usually due to low vibration energy blocks. It is human nature to want to help another feel better so that they can perhaps then be able to move forward and connect to their own energetic force.
In order for safe Reiki to be administered, there are a few things you should consider before either giving or receiving Reiki.
First, the Reiki healer should be able to either see the recipient’s energy field or be completely guided by their higher self or healing team. How is it possible for someone to be able to give the correct frequency of energy to the right area if one cannot “see” the energy field? It could be detrimental to the recipient to have too much energy in one place. Very rarely, individuals serve as vessels for teams of higher beings to work through and they simply move their consciousness out of the way and let the teams take control of the physical body and perform the healing. These types of healers will stand out in the alternative community as miracle workers and thus will have a proven track record. Otherwise, be wary of someone who simply becomes certified to give energy but has no way to gauge where it needs to go or what frequency or color it needs to be.
Second, the Reiki healer needs to have done healing and clearing on themselves. If a person does not know their Reiki healer well, they have no idea of who or what is in their energy field. Until hitchhikers, astral beings, and fear are dissipated by a person themselves, they should not be trying to heal another person. It is not a good idea to receive Reiki from someone who is just in the beginning phases of their own healing and awakening process. Otherwise, energy healers can inadvertently pass these energies or entities around like a ghostly virus.
Third, if a person is a hands on healer, they need to be clearing any negative energy from themselves before laying their hands on another person. Until protocols of protection are learned, a Reiki healer should not touch another person, especially if they are an open empath. Of course, that is how many people get healed and it is a wonderful thing for a person to get healed by someone when they couldn’t clear the energy blockage themselves. But this is hard on the healer to take on the energy and then to have to take the time and energy to clear themselves. Sometimes the healer gets too overwhelmed with energy that they have inadvertently taken on and they can get sick or “burned out” as the body gets fried.
Fourth, as we are moving closer and closer to connecting with a greater consciousness and self-healing understanding, it is not a good idea to continue enabling a person to rely on others to give them energy. All souled humans have the ability to remove the blockages that re-establish the connection to the same universal source. That is the real goal of someone who is on the ascension path, and one who continually seeks that energy outside of themselves is bypassing the work themselves will continue to struggle until they begin the path of self-healing.
While it is noble to want to be in service to others as a healer, it could also be harming others more than helping if the above topics are not considered. The very best way a person can help another is to work on themselves first. Some people take a fast track and can work on their issues within a year and some take decades. There comes a time in a truly balanced and healed individual where they catapult themselves into a higher timeline. Only then are they truly connected with their higher self and guides who tell them exactly what their mission is. If that mission happens to be healing, the protocol and method for doing that healing will be shown to them and the healing guides will always be there to assist on every session. This is the kind of Reiki healer one would want to be, and this is the kind of healing that one would want to receive.
In summary, the very best Reiki healers are “seers”, people who have a direct connection or open telephone line to their healing guides, or people that know how to step out of the way and let their healing guides work through their body. If you have recently received Reiki healing from someone and you got sick or feel worse from that session, try clearing by taking a sea salt bath and calling on your own healing team to remove any energies you may have picked up. Grounding with Earth and imagining that all that is not yours be pushed out of you feet into the planet for transmutation is also another good method. Ultimately we all end up making a few mistakes on our journey so that we realize how to heal ourselves.
As we continue to collectively raise our consciousness and understanding of frequencies and energy, it is important to refine each area in the metaphysical and spiritual arena. We have to become more aware and responsible for our own actions, where we are placing our energy, and what energies we are taking on from others. Clearing and healing yourself automatically affects everyone who is connected to you or that comes into your energy field. This has proven to be the most effective and accelerated way to help others collective ascend in frequency. While Reiki should not be necessarily ruled out in the higher consciousness protocols, the understanding and mastering of energy postulates that we can shift energy on a quantum level through association rather than a physical level.
