Subtle Energies Produce Subtle Experiences

I AM THAT (which) I AM

Reiki is a subtle energy that produces results which are also subtle, except when the results are anything but subtle.

Being the energy that it is, Reiki is all about subtle experiences. Everyone in my classes has had remarkable subtle experiences. Some enjoyed them, some gloried in them, all had opportunities to learn from them.  Some went into deep fear.  More than once someone commented about being completely discombobulated. A few left the classes believing Reiki was an evil influence.

Two very special ladies come to mind:  The first went home to rest after an attunement. As she lay down, she asked aloud for someone to work on her in regard to some health issues she’d been experiencing.  She awoke a bit later, eyes still shut, feeling loving hands on her body.  She recognized that she was receiving a Reiki treatment.  Momentarily, she remembered having locked her doors before going to bed.  She began to wonder how someone had gotten into her bedroom.  Fear crept into her thoughts, so she tried to inconspicuously open her eyes.  And she saw absolutely nothing except dents in the blanket covering her, where the healing hands were undeniably still present.  She was beyond frightened and demanded that the treatment stop.  It ceased immediately.

The second lady, a devout & active Mormon 🙂 began seeing three turbaned, dark-skinned men frequently in her presence.  She knew they were Reiki masters.  It frightened her anyway, for a while.  Eventually she did open to the truth that clothing and complexion have very little to do with healing ability or spiritual advancement.

BTW, both these women completed all levels of Reiki.

The point here is that Reiki can open us beyond our formerly limited perceptions, when we are willing to allow ourselves to learn, grow, and accept that All-That-Is holds not only what is already familiar to our physical senses in this lifetime, but there is much, much more also available to us.  And it’s always our choice whether or not we accept and allow.  Opening is never forced upon us.  We are never forced beyond our own boundaries and capacities.

Some students feel perfectly safe with subtle experiences.  Some don’t.  And Reiki works for everyone.  No one ever has to go out of their comfort zone.  Yet, everyone can choose to do so.

Perhaps all these students were right.  Each person receiving attunement/empowerment/initiation brings to the table, in this case the Reiki community, the sum total of her/his being.  Reiki works through and with every aspect and facet of our consciousness.  This includes all our behaviors, beliefs, emotions, feelings, habits, ideas, programming, religious training, and socialization, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  We are more than all that, and we are connected to every part of our SELVES. If it is true that we have existed and lived other lifetimes, we bring all that with us.  If we have ever been brainwashed or made commitments, contracts, or covenants during our entire existence, all that comes with us.

Baggage or luggage???  It’s (y)our choice!  Individual perceptions and perspectives come with us as well.  What matters most is whether or not we label ourselves, or accept someone else’s labeling of us, and this has to do with self-love even to the point where we no longer judge ourselves.  Then, and only then, can we integrate all we are into one functional, useful whole.  Just as every cloud has a silver lining, every human quality can be applied to the beneficial service of our fellow-man. However, so long as we judge ourselves, even by accepting others’ judgments of us, we continue to see evil, undesirable influences at every turn.

So…it likely matters little to your effective practice of Reiki if your choice is to stay within bounds that feel safe to you. Once attuned, the energy flows through you to whatever and whomever you choose.

Subtle sense perceptions are equally as valid as physical sense perceptions are.  For some reason, I’ve always accepted that Reiki practitioners are generally balanced and open in applications of every appropriate perception of what is at hand.  The reality is, when we practice Reiki, we are using a subtle energy to produce document-able physical results. And often more.  Whether or not we choose to document may not matter much either.  Perhaps in the long-term, what matters most is the level of service we give.

For me, at a very deep inner level, KNOWING MY TRUTH is infinitely important and desirable.  I’m willing to practice, read, and study for many lifetimes if need be.  And I AM WILLING TO GIVE MY OWN DIVINE INNER SELF THE FINAL WORD, especially when doing so frees me to better serve.

At the very beginning of my own Reiki training, I made a commitment to hold nothing back that was mine to give, to use Reiki without hesitation, qualification, or reservation, for the good of every living being whose path I cross, including the Earth and every situation in need of the healing power of PURE LOVE.  I made this commitment of my own free will and choice, and then I solemnly promised to use the gift of Reiki freely for the benefit of All-That-Is.

My commitment is to the Divine Source that poured its knowledge of Pure Reiki into me.  I AM humbly, profoundly grateful for every subtle experience that has become an eternal piece of my Inner Knowing.

I AM absolutely certain that those seeking physical documentation of subtle experiences are on the perfect path for them, and I wholeheartedly encourage them to continue along that path, throughout eternity, if need be.  Those requiring proof of facts by external experts are also on the perfect path for them, and would most likely experience their best growth by documenting facts for as long as desired.  Likewise, those who insist upon payment for every service rendered, perhaps even subscribing to standardized charges and forms, are on the perfect path for them.  If you have chosen such a Reiki practice, trust that your own carefully chosen path is absolutely correct for you!

I have only the responsibility to offer, share and speak My Truth. I AM not always guided to do so, however, and once done, my obligation is fulfilled.  Everyone hearing me has the total responsibility to choose whether or not what I have learned, offer, share and speak is part of their personal truth.

There is nothing else quite so gratifying as is finding, keeping, and treasuring whatever is our own perfect fit!  My way may not be the way for everyone else, yet I have an obligation and responsibility to be my TRUE  SELF to the bone, all the way, holding nothing back, and to share all of me with everyone else in my personal perceptual field and range, through this magnificent gift of Reiki.

For each of us, there comes a time when we grasp control of our own lives and our power, and when we accept total responsibility for the standards of our own Reiki practice, regardless of who set those standards; we are still responsible even when we allow someone else to set our standards instead of doing it ourselves.  In my belief system, we are never individually responsible to convince anyone else to accept or believe that our own path is “right” or that “I have the only truth, my way is the only way, and everything else is wrong.”

We are each responsible to follow our own path, and when we don’t discover a path that truly fits us, we are then responsible to carve our true path out of the wilderness.


Love & Blessings from me to you!

Until next post, Namaste!
