Reiki Transforms Your Relationship with Pain and Stress

Reiki helps with painHave you ever found yourself experiencing physical pain so strong you can’t stand up? Have you felt emotional pain so severe you thought your heart would explode?  Have you lived through stress so intense you felt you were losing your mind? Have you faced financial pressure that made you want to crack? Have you survived the spiritually profound dark night of the soul?  Or perhaps you are experiencing some of this now.

Everyone has lived through some sort of painful experience. You aren’t alone. I know I have had my share of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual pain. Reiki has helped me positively evolve my relationship with pain.

Earlier this month, I found myself in intense abdominal pain for over an hour. I couldn’t stand up and it came in waves. It kind of reminded me of being in labor.

At first I wanted to resist the pain. It really has been a long time since I have felt physical pain that severe. I consciously had to remember my mental tools to handle pain. I know that resisting what I’m experiencing makes it worse.

I remembered to invite the pain in and to let it move through me. I reminded myself that I am an unlimited spiritual being and I can handle this. Pain is just a label we give to energy moving through us. I surrender to the experience and let it move through.

In case you were wondering, I had turned on the Reiki right away. The Reiki is always my first impulse to handle anything that comes my way.

The things I was guided to do for myself were to breathe deeply, drink lemon water, celery juice and lastly use anise raven essential oil. The pain went away and was replaced with a healing fever.

I have been pondering the ways we experience pain in our lives and how we resist it. Whether it is relationship hurts, emotional pain, mental stress, spiritual discomfort, we often want it to stop and wish it wasn’t happening.

When you are resisting something you contract your energy. Your breathing becomes shallow. Your mind closes. You start to feel small and powerless in your life. You try to maintain control instead of surrendering to the wisdom and compassion of the universe.

Reiki helps you move out of resistance and into the flow of all that is. Reiki helps you tap into your unlimited and expansive inner power. It can help you be with ‘what is’ in your life without judging it as good or bad, right or wrong.

Once you release resistance and feel peace with the way things are, everything is free to change. Pain diminishes, relationships shift, finances improve, depression lifts. Sometimes instantly, often more gradually.

The Reiki will help you keep your vibration high and aware of your unlimited inner being. Next time you are in the middle of a painful experience, imagine divine white light or Reiki moving through your energy field. Feel it connecting you to the Earth to keep you grounded and release any unwanted energy. Feel the to connection in your heart to the infinite healing light of all that is. Remember you are part of all that is. And you are powerful and unlimited.

When the Reiki is flowing to you, you can Reiki relieffeel or imagine the light of the universe moving through your energy field. You can more easily feel your connection with all that is.

The Reiki helps to keep your mind open and release mental resistance. The mental resistance seems to make the pain worse and linger longer.

Remembering that what you are going through won’t break you because you are an eternal and unlimited being really does help.

When you know you are an unlimited spiritual being, it’s so much easier to believe you can handle what is moving through you. Reiki is high vibrating and loving energy that aligns you with your unlimited spiritual power.

Reiki will guide you towards what will help you feel better. The Reiki helps to clear your mind, heal your heart and to erase physical pain.

The Reiki will help center and ground you. Once your mind is more clear and you are grounded, you start to receive ideas and impulses for what will help you the most in the situation you are in.

If you need help moving through some pain in your life or remembering your unlimited potential, I am happy to support you with Reiki.

Reiki First Response

After being on the scene for a wilderness rescue in the same week that a good friend was first on the scene of a car accident, I have been thinking about how wonderful Reiki is for first response in emergency situations.

When I was visiting my sister in Sedona in March, we were enjoying relaxing by the creek. We heard a man calling for help. At first we weren’t sure if he was actually asking for help or playing around with his friends. We knew he was with at least two other people. We heard him yelling,”I am over here! I fell off the mountain!”  We gathered that he had at least broken his leg as we listened to him calling out in pain and agony. We couldn’t see him from where we were.

rescue 1I knew we had to help. My sister went to find him, make sure his friends were with him and to get to higher ground to call 911. There was no signal where we were. I remained at our spot by the creek nearby and immediately started sending Reiki. The Reiki was flowing strongly with my hands getting super hot.

I learned from my daughter’s friend that you can call 911 with no service.  I tried it and it worked. I also learned not to assume that the local first responders know the area well. None of them had been down to this part of the creek. They went to the wrong place at first and it took them over an hour to get to this man. Had I known this, I would have stayed on the phone with 911 and given very detailed directions.

While we awaited the EMT’s, I stayed where I was relaxing by the creek. I kept sending Reiki that everyone would be guided on what to do and to help the victim with his injuries. The victim was in an out of consciousness and growing weaker. We hoped the rescuers would be there before it was too late. I could feel the Reiki soothing him and performing  its magical healing. His injuries turned out to be a broken arm, leg, ribs, punctured lung. And that’s just what the first responders could tell.

My sister helped the first responders locate the victim. She also was giving them advice on the best path out and helping them carry equipment. Lots of choices were made. One being for them to call in the helicopter instead of taking him out on the trail. I trust the Reiki helped them all work together for the best possible outcome for this young man.

Looking back on this incident, it was amazing to see a rescue happen first hand. People really do come together. Everyone does the best they can in the moment. Everyone does what they are guided to do.

My first response is always Reiki. And I am best with a small layer of separation if possible. Although in this situation, if my sister had not checked on him I would have gone to him.

I remember during that hour we waited for the emergency responders, I tapped into the energy of people all over the world responding to crisis situations. I connected to all the other people who were sending Reiki in first response to an emergency. I knew I wasn’t the only one.

Then I tapped into the energy of wellness happening in the world. The wellness always far outweighs the turmoil. There is wellness even in a crisis if you look for it. You can always connect with the feelings of love and peace within you no matter what is happening around you. I found aligning with the inner calm within me was very powerful. I know the Reiki facilitated that blissful feeling, even when I knew there was a man suffering nearby.

Always remember you have far more to offer from your place of well-being than from your place of worry and fear. And no matter how you personally feel when you send Reiki to someone, the Reiki will enter them feeling like love and peace. It won’t transfer your nervous energy or fear to the receiver.Rescue 2

I also was acutely aware of not being attached to the outcome in this instance. Of course, my human mind wanted him to live to tell about surviving his fall off a cliff. But I also knew, that the Reiki would help him cross over if it was meant to be for him. I believe this man lived through this experience. Part of not being attached to the results in this instance was not being attached to knowing the outcome at all.

We left when they asked us to clear the area for the helicopter. We knew that we had helped all we could at this point.

Should you find yourself in an emergency situation here are some helpful suggestions for giving Reiki as first response:

  1. Turn on your Reiki!
  2. Trust your guidance.
  3. Call 911 even if you have no signal or you think someone else may have called.
  4. Ask the Reiki to insulate you from the trauma and keep you grounded.
  5. Send Reiki to the injured.
  6. Send Reiki to those on the scene helping. The Reiki will support the best course of action to unfold. It will help those involved make decisions that serve the highest good, by helping them stay clear, focused and open to infinite wisdom.
  7. Send Reiki to the emergency professionals. They are working hard and doing their best.
  8. For the victim(s), I think the best choice is hands off, beaming, unless you personally know the person. Of course, ask permission if you can or send with the intention that the injured person receives based on their free will. Remember if you are directly with the injured, don’t move them. Just help them stay calm where they are with Reiki.
  9. Trust the Reiki to work for the highest good of all concerned. Release your attachments to the results
  10. When it’s all over, remember to give yourself Reiki to sooth and calm your own nervous system. A good place to Reiki yourself is your mid-back, adrenal glands. You can also Reiki your root chakra to ground yourself.

You are far more powerful in offering assistance if you stay centered in your love and light. If an injured person feels your fear and worry, you add to their fear and worry. The Reiki adds strength, love and peace. Trust that you are helping far more than you may ever know by mediating and sending Reiki. And don’t worry if you are feeling off center, the Reiki will still work in calming them and you.

I’m sure that Reiki in its infinite wisdom places Reiki practitioners where they are most needed in any given moment. It could be you first on the scene one day. I hope this article helps you feel more prepared.

5 Ways to Help Reiki Flow Stronger When Someone is in Pain

Last night when my 5-year-old daughter had her first earache I was reminded how to most effectively give Reiki to someone in pain.  She was crying, moaning and in the worst pain I’d ever seen her in.  Of course that’s hard to watch and not be attached to the healing results of Reiki.

I instantly gave her Reiki to her ear.  The pain didn’t seem to be going away.  The Reiki didn’t seem to be flowing strongly.  So I got out my homeopathic remedies and gave a couple of rounds of those.  Then I pulled out the Children’s Tylenol, for the first time ever for her.

After I had done everything else I could think of do at night I went back to Reiki.  I called on my Reiki guides, healing guides and Archangel Raphael.  Raphael always has good healing direction for me and I heard him whispering in my ear once I relaxed, as the Reiki was flowing stronger and stronger.

If You find yourself in a situation of giving Reiki when You’re in pain or someone else is in pain and the Reiki doesn’t seem to be flowing very much.  There are things You can do to  help the Reiki flow, even when there’s intense pain happening.

Here are 5 ways to help the Reiki flow stronger when relieving pain: The Reiki Muse

1. Get your ego out of the way!  I always affirm before a healing session: “I am a clear and open Reiki channel and my ego has stepped aside”.   This is a reminder to let Reiki do it’s work and I’m not the one doing the healing.  I’m just a vessel for the energy.  The more I put my ego in by thinking things like “I want to take the pain away”, the less effective the healing process is and the more likely I am going to take on unwanted energy.

2. Relax and Breathe! When You hurt yourself or are watching someone You love in pain, pay attention to your breath.  Shallow breathing doesn’t help you relax.  It keeps You in panic mode.  Notice how much stronger the Reiki starts flowing when You slow your breath and relax.

If You hurt yourself, take a moment to center and inhale and exhale slow deep breaths.  If You are Reikiing someone else in pain, remind them to focus on relaxing and breathing.  Resisting the pain makes it worse. Talk calmly to the person experiencing the pain.

3. Envision the pain leaving the person so that they are returned to their state of wholeness. I imagine the energy of the pain being grounded into the Earth.  If You know Karuna Reiki® try using the Kryia and Rama symbols which really helps ground the pain.

When I started Reikiing my daughter last night I was remembering how bad ear aches hurt when I was a child.  I was literally feeling the pain.  Well, that didn’t help.  Archangel Raphael reminds me often about feeling the peace and wholeness in my body where someone else is hurting.    Feeling their pain adds fuel to the fire, so to say.

In my daughter’s case last night, I visualized the pressure in her ear being relieved and saw her ear in its state of health and wellness.  A working knowledge of anatomy helps with seeing the body in its state of wholeness.  If You lack anatomy training, just do your best.  You can just affirm that the body is in its state of wholeness.

4. Trust that the body knows how to heal itself. The Reiki really supports and speeds up the process.  When You allow yourself to relax into the knowing that the body has a brilliant self repair ability, it helps the Reiki flow better through You.

5. Imagine your hand is a Reiki magnet pulling the pain out of the body. When You are Reikiing someoneThe Reiki Muse else,  have them visualize your hand pulling the pain out of their body.  This gives them something to focus on and helps speed the process because their mental state has gone from one of pain to relief.

Of course if You are attuned to second degree Reiki, don’t forget CKR, the power symbol.  You’ll feel the Reiki get stronger with that symbol especially after you’ve relaxed and stopped worrying.

When using Reiki to relieve pain remember to keep yourself calm, relaxed and breathe.  Remind yourself that everything will be okay.  Try not to imagine the worst.  That just keeps You in a state of resistance of the healing process.

Trust yourself to know what to do.  Depending on the situation You may need to seek medical or other professional help.  In my daughter’s case, she woke up feeling good this morning.

In Reiki light,
