Five ways to Wellbeing - Give
The NHS state one of their 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing is to 'Give'. With Reiki, giving works, but only if the recipient is open to it with 100% buy-in. It is wonderful when there is buy-in and both practitoner and client have the opportunity to make that journey together.
For Reiki treatments to be effective, the therapist needs to have permission from the recipient to carry out the treatment, even if it is a distance healing. There is no way of knowing what another person wants unless it is overtly expressed and it is not fair to make any assumptions. Healing is a personal journey, a person has to make the decision to take the first and following steps. There is a need to accept the requirement to make changes and let go of energy which we may be hanging onto even if it is harming us, this can be hard, and even the best healer in the world can't do this for a person. However, healers can work with their clients.
During a Reiki treatment, the energy of the recipient is not added to or detracted from, rather the Reiki causes the energy in the recipient's chakras to balance, like a string of beads being organised together and straightened. Following the treatment it is up to the recipient to then justify their energies being balanced by making positive changes and practicing giving to themselves. There is some relevance here of the expression "Do unto others as you would do unto yourself" but also, please remember to "Do unto yourself as you would do unto others". Treat yourself as you would treat your best friend, with kindness and love, this will support the energies of your chakras retaining their balance.
Reiki is underpinned by intention and directs powerful energetic frequencies toward a person. This can usually be sensed by the client and practitioner and it has previously been measured by Kirlian photography and other methods. Exposing this power to a person without their consent seems invasive. If a person needs support but Reiki has not been granted, prayer and positive thoughts can be directed and these are less intrusive.
Boundries have to be set so practitioners are not rescuing people or fostering dependency. People can only heal their pain when they are ready to take some responsibility to heal themselves. The healer can support someone and walk alongside, but they can't walk for the person. We don’t help anyone when we try remove all the discomfort and struggle from their journey. Helping when asked can greatly benefit someone on the path to healing, but removing all obstacles for someone eliminates their need to grow and learn—a huge disservice and very draining, as well.
