And, yes, you read that correctly!

We all know about the fight or flight response to perceived danger so we know that fear serves us, and we respond appropriately.

Your brain is protecting you from something. But you get so caught up in the moment, in the panic that it is hard to rationalise and work out why you feel so anxious.

To work out that reason you need to calm down, not just in the moment but to give your body and mind a chance to really slow down and gain clarity. To look at your life from a different perspective, to analyse what you are doing and why. You need find the source of the anxiety and either remove it from your life or change it.

What can Reiki do?

Reiki works on four levels.

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐˜†๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—น

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—น

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—น

it works on the physical body to alleviate pain and illness and also with the sympathetic and parasympathetic system to relieve stress and anxiety and bring about a sense of calm.

The physical healing helps with our emotional and mental healing by allowing us to achieve calmness and clarity and thus examine our emotions and our thoughts and attitudes from a different perspective and change them where necessary.

Sometimes, the physical pain or illness we experience is our body’s way of telling us there is something deeper going on, some mental, emotional or spiritual need that is not being met but we are not consciously aware of it.

A sore throat, for example, can be a symptom of feeling unheard or being afraid to speak up for yourself.

For me, it was a tightening of my chest, sometimes a restriction like a band around my ribcage and pectoral muscles that had me struggling to breathe. It hurt and my brain would automatically go “you’re having a heart attack, you better get somewhere safe NOW!”

โ€œWhen her hands were on my head I could see colours that Iโ€™d never seen before, really vividly. They were beautiful bright pinks and purples. I felt really intensely happy, so much so that I was trying not to smile. I could see the silhouette of a pair of hands making calming rocking motions. I thought maybe they were Niamhโ€™s hands, and I could see them through my eyelids but when I opened my eyes to check I realised they werenโ€™t hers. I felt very at peace and was overcome by a feeling of pure contentment. When they went away, I felt kind of sad, and wanted them back as their presence was really comforting. I then became very aware of my body and could feel parts of it that I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever felt before. There were strange, tingly pulses in my legs. I was super aware of my position and felt like my spine was misaligned with my legs, to the extent that I had to adjust to feel โ€œstraight.โ€ I began to feel sad, but in an intense way and it felt almost good? Sort of cathartic, like it was good to feel it and everything was just right. I became a bit overwhelmed and scared for a bit as what I was feeling was really weird and intense and Iโ€™ve never felt anything like it. ๐—œ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ถ ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐˜† ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—œ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐—ป๐—ผ ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—บ๐—ฒ.Towards the end I was beginning to see the happy colours again, but they were dimmer and a bit fuzzy.โ€ ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

Maybe!

But probably not!

While some people may experience deep healing with their first Reiki treatment most do not.

Reiki promotes, or in some cases starts the self-healing process, and more sessions are required to keep your energy balanced and the healing process working.

If you think of a problem you’ve had for a while, say a particularly knotty muscle, you know one massage isn’t going be enough to deal with it.

It is the same with Reiki although it works on an energetic level some of the blocks we experience may have been in place for a long time, and some of our ingrained thought processes cause those blockages so it takes a while and a few treatments to work through them.

Reiki is not a religion, it can be a way of life, a path to spiritual awareness.

The system of Reiki works on the idea that we are all connected to the world in more than one way and as such there are four levels of healing:

the physical or the body,

emotional โ€“ your feelings and experiences

mental โ€“ your thoughts and attitudes and

spiritual โ€“ your connection with your higher self, the universe or source.

These are represented by the three diamonds or tandens.

We have our physical body represented by the lower tanden or hara placed about 2cm below the navel, which also represents our feelings of safety, security, and groundedness our Earth Energy.

The upper tanden, sometimes referred to as the third eye, represents our thoughts, our intuition, our creativity our connection to spirit, our Heaven Energy.

The middle tanden also known as the heart chakra represents love, inner peace, gratitude and our connection to others, our connection and awareness that we are not alone but one with the everyone and everything in the universe, this energy is called Oneness.

Healing is becoming whole, uniting all those parts of us, not just healing the physical symptoms but looking at all the elements that led to development of those symptoms.

I do not feel any different, so Reiki doesnโ€™t work!!!

I have heard this a few times. People get up off the treatment couch saying they feel quite relaxed but nothing else.

They were expecting fireworks or at the very least their ailment to be immediately cured. Reiki does not work like that. It is more subtle. It works quietly away in the background. It activates the bodyโ€™s self-healing.

We are more than the body, we are our thoughts, our emotions, and our spiritual side too โ€“ Reiki works on all these levels.

When I was suffering from panic attacks Reiki brought me peace in the moment, but it was a while before I was able to track down what was causing the anxiety and deal with the external problems and then my thoughts around it. Reiki gave me the calmness, the clarity to be able to seek out the causes for the anxiety both external and internal. The panic attacks became less intense and less frequent and then faded out altogether as I dealt with the issues in my life that were the root cause of the stress and anxiety I felt that led to the overthinking which led to panic attacks.

But it is only looking back that I can fully see the process I went through at the time it was far from comfortable. I kept going with the daily self-treatments and monthly Reiki shares, and the occasional treatment from another Reiki practitioners. A few years ago panic attacks were ruling my life, now I could not tell you when I last had one.

Can Reiki connect us?

A few years ago during a Reiki course we were split up into random groups to give each other Reiki.

One of the members of my group had mentioned earlier in the day that she was struggling with a knee injury. She volunteered to receive Reiki first and lay on the treatment couch. As I prepared myself to give her Reiki I noticed the other members of the group make a beeline for her knees. I decided to hang back for a moment to see where I was guided to.

My intuition was telling me to put my hearts above the middle tanden, or heart chakra, the place in our physical body that represents love and our connection not just to other humans but also the universe. As I placed my hands over her heart space I was immediately assailed by visions of soldiers. These were young soldiers and they appeared on a break from duties, they were chatting and laughing and passing around photographs.

I kept my hands above her heart space for the duration of the treatment and saw the same young soldier, dressed in full uniform, marching, then running. At one point I saw him run to a young woman and hug her. He appeared to be somewhere with a hot climate.

At the end of the treatment as we discussed what she had felt said that she felt a lot of heat around her knees and that her knee ached less. I asked her if there were any soldiers in her immediate family, she thought about this for a while but couldn’t come up with an answer. I didn’t pursue it and we continued with the treatments.

A few weeks later, we both turned up to a Reiki share and she asked me if I remembered that I had seen soldiers when giving her Reiki. I said that I did

and she then went on to tell me that her much older brother whom she hadn’t heard from in over twenty years had called her from Australia that evening. He had been in the army as a young man, she had been a child at the time so didn’t see much of him and had forgotten this part of his history.

Was it Reiki that had reconnected them?
