Know your Reiki

More and more attunements are being used as a means to self-heal but they were never intended that way once you moved past Reiki 1. They were the tool of the master practitioner of the healing arts, as it is only in recent times Mikao Usui initiated a resurgence in energy healing that has so captured the minds of westerners. It is to be noted Usui was no slouch, he was a well educated and well trained individual holding a doctorate in theology gained in Chicago he set about taking his spiritual beliefs and applying them to health practices for the masses. As a devout Buddhist any assertion that Reiki has Christian origins were introduced much later by Hawayo Takata, who specifically wanted to expand the reach of Reiki practices into the western world and in so doing gained many wealthy entrepreneurial spirit hunters who were disillusioned with standard theological definitions and guidelines.

It is also a mistake to think this practice stemmed from a Buddhists interest in the methods of Jesus in the recounted healing miracles of the bible for obvious reasons, but let's add to that Shugendo, an ancient and still used energy practice which likely forms the basis of modern Reiki. It is believed that Usui took at least one mountain journey in which he developed the ability to channel energy, the details are a bit sketchy but he would be well aware of Shugendo, which incorporates Shinto and Buddhist practices.

Roles of Shugendo practitioners include offering religious services such as divination, prayer ritual incantations and even exorcism. He was an unfailing student of God but more, I personally believe he was an unfailing student of belief and how it structures your life. In his lifetime he attuned only 16 masters of Usui Shiki Ryoho but attuned over 2000 individuals, he definitely saw a difference between attuning for healing and being a master of healing others, unfortunately this distinction seems to be lost today.

The simple act of expanding is mind blowing for some, while others have found it not to be such a big deal, usually this is determined by the frequency itself. That is if you are using the frequency already, you won't feel an appreciable expansion, you might miss that feeling of euphoria, the wonderful dreams and that odd but satisfying feeling of wandering around with a dumb smile on your face for no reason.  I felt these when attuning to Seichim to which I gained Master/Teacher status way before I had enough experience to comfortably wear the title. In my Reiki attunements, which came later, there was less of a buzz, but when the two were fused to create Reichim it nearly blew my mind for a while. I was overwhelmed with sensations, images, visions, recollections and a whole gamut of experiential information, and so began what I have come to call my accelerated year of learning. It is also the beginning of understanding the vibrant and incredibly complex nature of vibrational medicine and the limitations bought about by singular frequency practices.

Guilt: Life Inhibitor

Guilt holds so many traps and obstacles that it is difficult to know where to start. Many of us are taught to feel guilty from a young age, with starving Ethiopians being the standard to get you to eat copious amounts of food when you were a child. For still others there is the blame apportioned to them as children because their father left or their mother had a headache. The less recognizable insidious methods in which blame is poured onto young minds is from schools where punishment is meted out to a class due to the actions of one or when an adult has trauma or difficulty in their life, the children around them are made to feel their own actions are somehow the cause.

Life can be difficult enough to navigate without the hidden aspects of undeserved guilt. Don't get me wrong, there are no doubt things you should feel guilty for, but only if they happened today, If you have an event that goes back far enough it can't be fixed in some way, then learning to accept the error of your ways is the fastest way to move on. Our courts function in this manner, feel remorse and all is forgiven, minus the due consequence of course. Like all our emotions guilt has a purpose, those who don't feel guilt in any way are our sociopaths and potentially psychopathic. Even a narcissist feels guilt at times, they just temper it with what they think the world owes them and so find it easy to put aside, or it flares as bad behaviour towards other less important mortals.

For you today guilt can be firmly put in it's place, it is a barometer of behaviours, if you have a lot of things you feel guilty about, then you have some behaviours YOU are not happy with, Guilt never has anything to do with anything else, Do you feel guilty for lying to make someone else feel happy? Chances are you don't, let's face it, we have all told that 'you are looking great' lie. Guilt in itself describes your values to you, if you don't like liars you will be struck down by guilt when you behave that way, If you find yourself talking about someone behind their back but have consistently mentioned how you dislike that sort of thing, you will be struck by guilt. It isn't honesty that drives a criminal to confess or a person having an affair to tell all to their spouse, often the latter does more damage than not telling ever would have. What it does, is alleviates that ongoing feeling of guilt. I am of the notion that if what you did was bad enough for you to feel guilt that can't be assuaged without unnecessarily hurting someone, then you deserve it, hold it and promise yourself never to do that again. In the case of the criminal, they are looking for the punishment to help alleviate the guilt, in most cases (including the confessional) it is in the telling that a person feels a lift.

These are easy to manage and evolve. You feel the guilt, you stop the behaviour, If the situation makes it possible, you apologize, trust me, that lifts the guilt too, but in all cases the single biggest factor will be in NOT continuing the behaviours that make you feel bad about yourself, Feeling bad about yourself is guilt in play.  For the guilt that comes from things you didn't do, or might do, or when guilt has become a way of life, this hypnosis will put it right where it belongs. at the edge of your psyche, where it can play it's role as behaviour monitor and moderator, without affecting every decision you make, your relationships and more. It is in guilt that we feel undeserving of good things and it is in guilt that we hold ourselves in addiction, you can release past guilt and quite simply move on.
