|By itself, what does it do.|
Then he would proceed to, take the people from the clinic and have his students removed the attached spirits from the people who were "healed". The person who told me this story also said that they did in fact see similar things from "the normal Reiki person." In the same breath of course, they asked me to do reiki on them, because as a Magician, Vodou Priest, and Sorcerer, I didn't really have those kind of issues.
Now, I might think that sorcerer was being a bit of "asshat" although n a way, we'd probably have a great conversation over some tea or beer. More often then not, that Sorcerer might be right for many complex reasons.
So far, I have had several posts, about understanding Reiki. We have to look at what Reiki originally was when we look back on what Usui had said, the modern shortcuts, and the need to dig deeper. Reiki is a way to connect to Universal Life Force, in fact that most reiki practineers can agree with. If we accept that, then the multitude of life can be colored by the multitude of symbols people have channelled. This is encouraged by most Reiki Trainers, including myself. The problem is that the stream of Universal Life Force offers an opportunity for negative spirits to flow and attach.
Of course, the party line of reiki masters, is this is not possible. In its original conception, this is correct its not. Usui Sensai would have demanded his students take the reiki seriously, meditate and pray often, and in ways make sure to keep their own energy system clear. This would be similiar to what Gigong masters and other energy therapists would demand of their students. This has been lost in the West.
In the blog post, http://magicblog.andriehvitimus.com/2012/05/reikis-outer-energy-channels-and-gigong.html, argued that Reiki Flows along the outer edge of the auric fields. While Reiki itself in Traditional Usui Style has some safeties, there is no safeties with some of the derived systems. When you study the mechanics of energy flow, these safeties have a couple correlatives if reiki flows down and out the outer sphere. Combined with what I personally have seen:
- Spirit attachment beyond the shell would be dissolved slowly as the reiki would have to work its way in. This would take some effort. It could be done through willful prayer, and Reiki
- The flow of Reiki itself while generally beneficial, provides a conduit for spreading a spiritual infliction, because it flows around the outer channels. The Reiki Practitioner is expected to keep their internal energies clean. This is sadly not stressed in Reiki Training. I stress it, in the most ANAL fashion possible.
- This implies that the Attunement itself was done correctly so the person can reach higher vibrational energies, a fact that probably cannot be assumed.
Of course, I could this goes against the party line of Reiki and people may in fact get mad at me. It comes from the heart, and is my experience. Plus that, I still have my Delete Key.
|Wait, you mean Atoms are not indivisible...|
they are probability clouds, WHAT!
Atomic Singularity of Spirit
In school once, we were taught that Atoms were indivisible building blocks of everything. They were just like pool balls. This metaphor served science for a while, and then was just proven dead wrong.
Likewise, there is notion of Spirit as "equally" atomic as the lessons about atoms. From an Information Model, Spirits form a complex interconnection between reality, your brain, you, energy and a hosts of other components. Its far to complicated for one blog, but what if spirits were more like fractals.
What if spiritual attachments and inflictions were more like a computer program that could spread and replicate, or that a attached spirit could have pieces of itself imbedded into multiple sources drawing strength from multiple sources. What if Spirits, not being of matter or form to start with, COULD be in multiple places at the same time.
Its clear, if you do magic for a while that this has to be the case. However, it is a notion, that simply put the beings of form limited in Space and Time, aka us, just dont grasp. An attached spirit, might want to spread more like a vector disease then exist as a "singular intelligence". That thinking, has gotten many a magician in trouble.
If you are providing a stream of energy and intention on the outer edge of your aura, and have internal parasites, why wouldn't they hitch a ride? Clean pure water flowing over a infected wound, still contains the bacteria of the wound if you try to drink it afterwards.
... Is everyone Ethical?
No Magician would ever assume that ever assume that everyone has perfect intention. It wouldn't take much for people to abuse the above system and purposely implant parasites. Usually the parasite trick is done through the transmission of more earth based energies or sex energies. However, even in Reiki healings, I have seen people try things that simply put were hurtful, and yes on me, it didn't go far. I usually make sure all of my students who do Reiki, actually DO Reiki in line with the original intention of Reiki as an uplifting force. I do not usually go to many Reiki shares outside my students, so I haven't seen alot of issues with this type of transmitted Spirit inflictions... of Course, in part that is because I Have. . .
Good Spirit Guides, Great Psychic Shielding, and High Vibrational Internal States.
I am a Vodou priest as well, from essentially a odd family of mystics, psychics, priests, shamans, saints and monsters... I have GREAT well fed ancestors, good relationships with the Lwa, Unbelievably good relationships with Angels ( including the fallen). In essence, I have alot of protectors and guides that would tell me if something was amiss.
The Shinto underpinnings of Reiki might mean that different guides come to the surface but PART of the Reiki experience was to share and develop relationships with those guides that would prevent the spread of a spiritual infliction, or help cure you of it while the Reiki was flowing. This is sadly not a point stressed by most Reiki Teachers. While I personally, am an Ancestor Advocate, really even having a good working relationship with the ancestors can prevent these sorts of troubles.
The second real problem, is that there is no sense of mastery in most Reiki lines. Basic spiritual training like psychic shielding are discounted. Good psychic sheilding is a two way protection protection. First it prevents you from inflicting the patient. Ideally, you would have a cleaned internal energy system, but no one is perfect. This gives at least some protection.
Need to Learn Psychic Shielding
Multiple Chapters, lots of energy games to work up to it. Banishing Cleansing and MORE
Additionally, the nonchalant way most people practice are part of the problem. Usui Sensai originally outlined a MASTERY system of energy work. This means that the system was supposed to be worked like a martial art. People now will activate their "Reiki stream" while bullshitting around, chatting, thinking about whatever. All of those stray thoughts, and potentially parasites can easily spread down the stream. The idea, is to stay focused, have strong mental discipline and focus on the vibration of the Reiki while maintaining the positive vibe through every cell of your mind and body. This takes effort and would not be something that Usui Sensai had to say in Japan because the culture of discipline is more present. It MUST be said here, however.
Reasserting Space, Taking the Time, and Clearing Space
I recently ran a Reiki attunement in my home, for advanced students in the Quantum Life Science Institute. I have been doning this a while. Do you know, I sat down in my home meditated and prayed for an hour before hand. Before I even would start, I banished and purified myself, the space, and laid down glyphs and protection to draw out negative things from people as well as keep the space pure and safe.
Seriously try this on your next Reiki healing if you are attuned.
- Breathe Deeply, while sitting in the Gasso Position.
- Activate the Reiki. Breathe More deeply.
- Pray to your guides while in Gasso and pushing Reiki Purify yourself.
- See, hear and feel any impurities melting away. Keep running with it. Purifying incense can help aid this.
- If you have not developed any relationships with any guides, imagine what it would be like if your body vibrated at the highest metaphysical frequency you can imagine. What would that be like? Keep channeling the Reiki while everything not in that vibration would start moving closer to that vibration. What does that look like, feel, like, sound like? Use all your senses.
- Do this till you feel you are completely purged of any impurities ( 20-30 minutes). IF you have a good solid banishing ritual, that will work in this case too.
- Stay focused on the Reiki stream and positive vibration ( mental discpline), try to maintain that higher vibration or connection with the Reiki guides while doing the Reiki.
- Purify the space yourself before and after.
You owe it to yourself and the people you work with to be the best healer you can be. Don't take the easy shortcuts and treat it as the mastery system of healing that it was intented. Work hard in Love.
