Exploring the different levels of Reiki can take you through an amazing journey of self discovery. While a healing technique to share with others, Reiki is also a beneficial tool in healing ourselves emotionally, physically and spiritually. I always ask Reiki students whether they find it easier to feel the flow of energy when giving themselves a session or when sharing with another…the answer is always when they share with others. Why is that?
Reiki is that loving Universal Life Force energy that surrounds all of us, each living thing. It helps the plants to grow, the earth to vibrate, the oceans to flow and encourages our own inner and outer energies to come to a place of balance and harmony. Why then, is it so difficult to give that gift of peace to ourselves? I often find the answer to this question changes, for most students, when they have completed their 2nd level of Reiki training.
I think the answer to this lies in the journey both into and through the 2nd level, as the student is introduced to the more profound aspects of energetic healing. Often the experience can only be described as a “feeling” with few words that adequately give it expression. The consideration that each person works with energy in their own way is something that a student of Reiki 2 will have no room or space to doubt as they practice this healing art at its next level. It is truly an awe-inspiring and humbling thing to experience, and gives one a greater sense of each person’s individuality while at the same time the clear picture of our oneness.
During the Reiki 2 class sacred symbols are shared that help the practitioner to enhance and focus the ways in which they share Reiki energy whether hands on or long distance, whether placing their hands on their own heart or sending the healing to their back… More subtle aspects of the energetic field are also experienced and healed in learning to stimulate and balance the 7 main chakras as well as the male/female aspects that are a part of each of us humbling thing to experience, and gives one a greater sense of each person’s individuality while at the same time the clear picture of our oneness.
I believe once you have taken the steps to further your journey and learn the different aspects to Reiki 2, that it is near impossible to look back. The further commitment to holding that loving energy in your hands, to sharing it with yourself and others, moves it from a tool, to a habit and a pattern and provides a fresh way of viewing the world around you. It enhances the gift of light that we each have within and encourages you to share it with your hands.
