How Reiki Can Help You Heal And Accelerate Your Spiritual Path By Sabrina Reber


Reiki literally means “Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy”. It is YOUR Spirit and God who determines how much energy will flow through your system during a Reiki treatment. The healer does not use their energy. The healer is attuned, balanced and their energetic system is strengthened to allow concentrated levels of the Universal Life Force Energy to flow through them. Healing is a three-way agreement between You, God and the Healer. From the healer’s standpoint, our main job is to ignite the “inner healer” within you. Your inner healer is the source of higher consciousness that governs all systems within your body. It regulates breathing, keeps your heart beating and blood flowing without you consciously having to direct or be aware of it. Your inner healer is all-powerful and has the potential to heal anything within your system that needs assistance.

As each of us go through painful experiences in our life we automatically try not to feel the pain. At a very young age we were taught not to cry and not to express our emotions or feelings. This was considered inappropriate behavior and instead of allowing our natural feelings and emotions to rise to the surface, so we could release them, we stuffed them in the depths of our subconscious mind or energy field blocking our inner healer. These “frozen” moments of pain remain in our energy field if we do not allow them to fully be felt and expressed. All of these “frozen” moments create disharmony by blocking the natural flow of our inner healers healing energies. Without realizing it, we create our own illness and dis-ease through our own unprocessed emotions, feelings and negative thoughts. As Deepak Chopra says, “Our bodies are the battleground for the wars we rage in our “mind”. Your mind exist not only in the brain but also throughout your entire energetic and physical being. Your mind is your complete human computer system. It is the body, as well as, your aura that extends 2-3 feet around your body. Therefore, negative thoughts, feelings and emotions are not just in the brain. They also collect in the various locations throughout the body and aura. The places where negative thoughts and feelings collect is where energy is restricted in flow, therefore, negatively affecting the physical organs that exist at these locations. If the negative thoughts, feelings and emotions are not eliminated quickly we create dis-ease and illness.

All illness whether it be a cold, pain, depression, anxiety, cancer or addiction is created because there is an energetic imbalance or distortion in the human energy field. If this imbalance or block is not released it will work its way through the many layers of the energetic field and make its way to the physical body creating a symptom or pain. Once it has made its way to the physical body; doctors, surgeons and pharmaceuticals are absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, these methods only treat the “effect” of the energy distortion and never get to the root cause of the illness. Oftentimes, this leads to additional surgeries and a lifetime dependency on medicine.

Modern medicine is just now beginning to acknowledge that humans are both energetic and physical beings. Many hospitals are beginning to incorporate Reiki practitioners in their medical practice. In fact, Dr. Oz, who is frequently on the Oprah Winfrey Show, uses two Reiki practitioners in the operating room while he performs open heart surgeries. He understands, during an operation, patients loose vital life force energy. By having Reiki practitioners “charge up” the patients energy field during an operation their pain will be reduced and they will have a quicker healing response. Instead of a depleted energy field, they leave the operating room with higher levels of life force energy greatly assisting the patient’s ability to fully recover.

Reiki works on all levels of your being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Reiki is a full spectrum healing modality treating both the “cause” and the “effect” of the energetic imbalance. During each Reiki session your entire energetic and physical system is charged up with a high level of Universal Life Force Energy. Universal Life Force Energy is the energy that animates all living things. When our life force energy is high we are energetic, healthy, creative and vibrant. When our life force energy is low we are more susceptible to illness and we feel depleted, depressed, unhealthy and exhausted. Naturally, as we age, our life force energy begins to fade. In addition, our life style choices also affect our supply of life force energy. Alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, stress, dehydration, lack of exercise, repetitive negative thoughts/emotions/feelings, fear, unhealthy relationships and poor choices in our food all affect our life force energy. Our life force energy is vital to our health and well-being.

Spontaneous healings and miracles can occur in one Reiki session; however, multiple sessions are usually required. During a Reiki session, a high level of universal life force energy moves through your system breaking up and dissolving old traumas, blocks, negative energy, unprocessed emotions and stored pain. As we eliminate each imbalance in your system, your supply of life force energy will be increased, therefore, assisting you with your own healing. Your inner healer will be activated through the removal of energetic blocks and negative frequencies assisting your body to become stronger and more able to use its own inner wisdom to fight off disease. Once balance is achieved, your moods and behaviors will improve, your sense of self and self-esteem will return and your innate self-organizing principle in your body will be activated.

You are the motivating force in your healing. It is your personal power and determination that will bring you back into an optimum state of well-being. The only person who can create change within you is YOU! Sincere desire to heal, personal responsibility, self-reflection and opening yourself up to change will create the transformation you desire. In addition to continued Reiki treatments, visualization, prayer, meditation and affirmations are also powerful tools to assist you on your healing path.

Aside from a Reiki healing session, I also highly recommend people attend a Reiki Level 1 Class to become attuned to Reiki. The attunement is a spiritual initiation that will open your energetic system to channel higher levels of life force energy ~ so you can become your own healer. Reiki is a healing modality but it is also an enlightenment system that connects you in a more profound way to your higher self. Reiki is the quickest and easiest way to enhance and strengthen your personal level of Life Force Energy, clear out blocks and karmic miasims in your chakras. For me, Reiki was like spiritual DRANO. The Reiki light/love moved through my energetic system dissolving and softening the stubborn blocks within my being. After you take a class, IF you apply the teachings, commit yourself to daily self healings, meditate and commit yourself to your the spiritual practice of Reiki ~ your spiritual path will be greatly accelerated.
