Dear Reiki Healer,
Reiki is Unconditional Love, correct?
Many years ago when I read about Reiki healers feeling drained or "not right" after healing sessions due to picking up clients' energies or "giving away" their own energies, I did not want to believe it. How could unconditional love do that?
But here's the thing: Reiki energy is divine love and cannot do harm, but the practitioner through whom the energy flows, and the client who is taking in the energies- both are human beings who likely have unresolved "stuff" that can transfer during sessions. Many Reiki healers have attempted to address this by putting up strong shielding, which has value but if coming from fear/unresolved stories can hinder both client and practitioner.
For years I have emphasized that healing modalities utilizing the process of the healer being a conduit are only as good as the openness and level of awakening of the conduit. Thus one of the primary focuses of my healing instruction is on the personal and spiritual development of the healer (instead of the main focus being on learning techniques). If you are a Mystery Mastery Healing System student or graduate, you have noticed this.
If you are a Reiki healer, one of the most important things you can do for your own healing, and for that of your clients, is address your unresolved emotions and stories. You can use Reiki to do this. You can also use this process, which I have found very helpful.
Additionally, you can practice a type of Reiki that uses entrainment instead of the healer being a conduit. And in the process, not only can it reduce energy transfer, you end up being more strongly aligned with your higher nature, intuition and sovereignty. You are also less likely to pick up the energies of others as you go about your daily life, and less influenced by the things unfolding in your world and in your life. Instead you can rest in greater peace, calm and knowing.
