If you didn’t know already, I’m all over the internet. One of my social networking pages is called Spiritual Networks.com. There I met a lady who is a Reiki master. She is in Canada and she sent me a message and now we are Facebook buddies too. Her being a Reiki master prompted me to say that I had received mixed experiences from Reiki sessions over the years and that I practise simple spiritual healing…I went on the clarify, that I don’t think simple spiritual healing is any better or worse than Reiki. I guess I wanted to open up a conversation about my experiences with spiritual healing in general.
My first experience with Reiki was when I was 18, I was still very naive about allot of things in life and Reiki was no exception. I went along to an older lady and she began to work her magic. Little did she know, but I had been under psychic attack all my life from earth bound spirits, and as I was not brought up in a house where parents were educated about this, I was unaware of how to deal with it all. I had worked out some of my own methods of protecting myself, mainly cowering under my bed sheets and hoping they would go away.
So, when she laid her hands on me, she found herself removing the attachments of many spirits from my aura. She had created a massive energy shift in my body and she had found herself frightened by the experience. It was unnerving for her. One spirit in particular, chose to leave me via my solar plexus and through hers and out in the form of etheric fire. In the end, without my consultation, she used her Reiki to shut down my Spiritual eyes. She thought that if i couldn’t see them, then I couldn’t attract them. I left being spiritually blind, having all my life at least being able to see who or what was trying to attack me. I now could only feel and hear them. Now bear in mind, I spent my teenage years in the Queensland outback mining town of Mt Isa. There were many a deceased Miner who had not crossed over, plus many folk who had died in road smashes ect…It was a town full of earth bound spirits, looking for someone to help them find the light, the way home and I was a blearing beacon…unable to control my gift, now blind to the spirits I came in contact with and desperately trying to find another way to see them.
I did re-learn to see them, but I have never seen spirits in the same way. I used to see, with open physical eyes, ghosts like a transparent person, now, I see them( with open physical eyes) in their higher, energetic form. I taught myself, out of necessity, to see them this way. In the beginning, I would only see orbs of light. I didn’t know if they were good or bad. Just orbs of light. Then I began to see the more subtle vibrations of these orbs of light and after a couple of scary experiences, I began to discern that those orbs that vibrated steadily were good and those that swirled were not. Once I had passed this test, I began to see the spirits in their energetic bodily form.
One time, I was walking home late at night and I saw a man, jogging, he was in complete energetic form. I investigated later about that road and found a man had died jogging along there a few years earlier.
The evolution of my spiritual sight grew as I became more adept at reading what I was looking at. When I was a student, I lived in an old run down house with my eldest brother and a bunch of other students. There was definitely a spirit in the house who was attacking us and the visiting girlfriends of my house mates would often report having hair raising experiences. I was also getting frightened. I would have my solar plexus zapped, and every time it was zapped, it would feel like an electric shock and my body would be lifted just a little off the bed. The spirit who was responsible would wait until I reached my most vulnerable moment, the twighlight between being awake and asleep.
I told a woman at college about it and she suggested that I visualise my solar plexus to be covered by a shield and to be armed with silver swords that I could catapult out into the spirit with my mind’s eye. So, armed with this knowledge, I went home that afternoon and made out I was going to have a nap. I lay there, waiting and I could feel the presence come over my aura. I let my eyes slit open and I could see a red energy cloud above me. I willed myself to relax deeper and just as I felt my relaxation slump, I opened my eyes and pumped silver swords into the spirit above me. Just in time too, because what I saw was an energetic red coloured arm reaching down to touch my solar plexus. When I ambushed it, I saw a man’s face protrude through the red energy cloud and express shock. I had won the battle, but it would take me years to win the war.
So, going back to Reiki. I haven’t learnt this form of spiritual healing for only two reasons. Time and money. I have been too busy with two boys with special needs to have the time to take off to learn it and because I have had two boys with special needs, my money has had to go into their specialist appointments and their requirements…not into things I’d like to do…I’m sure many parents can relate to that one.
For those of you who are Spiritual healers and for those of you who want to be, I would like to say this…after my experience, please consult with your client, before you decide to change their gifts. Please don’t be frightened of them, if they have some attachments, they may not know how to deal with it and please consider what is going on in your life before you do a healing. Take the time to separate your personal life from your professional, so your healing is not tainted by the issues you are encountering. It is hard to keep this professional distance when working on an energetic level, but for your client’s sake, it is imperative.
For those of you who want to get a Spiritual healing treatment, whether it be Reiki or another method, remember to listen to your instincts when choosing a practitioner and keep solid in your mind during the treatment, that you will only accept the healing that is for your higher good. That way, if the practitioner you are working with is having an off day, their work will be just as good for you as any other day. It cuts both ways when you are working on an energetic level.
Remember that after a healing you must eat and drink to get grounded and fill your mind with positive thoughts, to keep the beautiful healing energies active.
