This post is inspired by some excellent questions from a reader named Marie about a healing technique called Reiki. Marie asks about Reiki’s validity, whether she’s really channeling divine energy when she performs Reiki, and whether the person receiving Reiki can receive the same energy just by meditating and visualizing the energy coming to them.
The Council says there’s a single great healing force. And because of the existence we’ve created on Earth, people are able to tune into this healing energy through many different paths, including Reiki, and we are drawn to the path we’ve used in other lifetimes or feels familiar.
The Council says when you believe you’re able to heal without any formal training it can be done. They say healing occurs by intention, by wanting the best for the person receiving the healing, seeing them whole and getting them to see themselves as whole and healed. Healing happens when our spirit decides to accept this energy.
The Council points out we are already healed and whole. They say what we’re going through creates the sickness because there’s something we need to learn from going through this, but as soon as we remember who we truly are as spiritual beings and decide to let the healing energy in, the wholeness is remembered and the healing occurs.
The Council says many people love the idea of going to school, but they say healing happens whether you are trained or not, because the healing is all around us. They recommend we enjoy the different healing modalities. When we feel the healing, know it’s always there for us and that we’ve decided to let the healing energy in.
In Reiki there are certain healing symbols that are used and Marie asks if they’re necessary. The Council says they aren’t necessary, but if they help you believe you are working with the healing energy and it helps the recipient feel this energy, by all means use them. They add that whatever it is that helps us connect to the idea we can help another, use it.
Marie finishes up by saying after she received Reiki training she felt the formality of the training was becoming obsolete and asks if this is the case. The Council says this is a belief. Believing the formality is necessary makes it necessary, but if you believe the formality isn’t necessary it becomes unnecessary.
The Council says Marie has done healing in other lifetimes and Reiki is how she’s connecting to this healing in this lifetime. If her training enables her to connect with something magical and powerful, they suggest she use the formality.
At the beginning of the session one of our cats began playing with a toy and making noise. When Bob got up to stop the noise, The Council said it’s a vibration of fun and happiness that should never be eliminated and to let the cats enjoy themselves. This is included in the recording below as, 1. “Prelude”. Listen to the entire session with The Council to hear all their guidance on healing for Marie and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is about an excellent question from Katie, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer and would like to know if there’s “a way I can get my higher self to work with and through me to cure myself of this cancer?” And she asks, “How does one renegotiate a life plan that seems to suck, and rewrite or edit it to remove the suffering, and attract health and a happier and more fulfilling life?”
Katie’s question indicates a general awareness of the spiritual principals discussed in other posts in this blog, but she’s looking for guidance on how to apply them in her specific situation.
The first thing The Council mentions is Katie’s beliefs about cancer and how sick she gets when she has chemotherapy. The say because she expects to experience being sick from chemo, she is creating that experience.
Next they tell Katie her spirit created this cancer as a way to get her to sit and think about what is spiritually lacking in her life.
The Council reminds Katie the physical body isn’t solid. There’s space between the structures of her body. And spirit is always flowing an energetic life force to feed the body. On a physical level when you don’t allow this force to flow freely through you, eventually it will cause physical problems. And what stops this flow of energy is fear.
Katie’s spirit created this cancer to look at the fear within her. So as she asks where in her body is the fear, and why is the energy not flowing there, The Council reminds her to think of this fear as fluid, not solid. It is there to be felt, to be perceived differently, and to flow through her and out of her body.
The Council suggests allowing the energy of love to flow freely throughout her body, picturing it any way she can. And ask her body to show her the fear and ask why it’s not moving. As she begins to feel this energy of love flowing more and more throughout her body she can notice it taking away the nauseousness from the chemo. This movement and love will help her get to the point where she can heal this cancer.
This cancer wasn’t created for Katie to suffer. It was created by her spirit for her to stop and change how she perceives herself, how she perceives things she’s experienced, how she’s dealt with emotional and physical hurts in the past, and to now change this. This is how she renegotiates her life plan. She changes how she perceives herself and who she really is. She changes how she perceives what will happen in the future while working through this cancer.
The Council says just with the intention of finding the love within her, just with the intention of having that fluid movement, just with the intention of connecting with spirit she will begin this healing process. Even if she doesn’t know what she’s doing in the beginning, it is her intention to start this healing and find the answers she needs. Even if she doesn’t know how to picture this fluid movement in the beginning, her intention that she wants to do this will already begin her healing.
