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 a question from a reader named Jan who wants to know if The Council’s use of pronouns like ‘you’ and ‘we’ is meant to differentiate between themselves and those of us in this physical reality.
The simple answer is, we don’t think so. The Council says sometimes they say ‘you’ when they’re trying to make a point about the person who’s asked a question. And they sometimes say ‘we’ when they’re talking more generally or when they are included.
The not so simple explanation has to do with how The Council experiences reality and how we experience reality. The Council says they use you and I often to refer to the same person because we are all one. But they add this point of view takes some understanding.
The Council says, “In truth we are all parts of all reality. And yet it is easier for people to understand when we say, ‘We have chosen to be part of your reality.’ It is easier to understand it that way instead of saying, ‘We are all in everybody’s reality all the time.'”
In other words, The Council seems to be saying their choice of pronouns has less to do with differences between us and them, and more to do with making themselves more easily understood by the largest number of people.
The Council says when they use the words ‘you’ and ‘us,’ many people don’t understand they’re referring to the same thing because they see us as spiritual beings just like they are spiritual beings.
The Council suggests meditating on their answers to this question and says it will open many doors and pose many new questions.
Jan also asks about beings like angels that interact with us from a non-physical reality, but we’ve decided to answer this question in a future post.
Listen to The Council’s answer to this question in the 6-minute session below and let us know your thoughts.
