Reiki and Spiritual Growth

Reiki can have a profound impact on our spiritual growth. In my opinion, this is one of the least known or understood benefits of learning Reiki. While Reiki is indeed a powerful tool for healing, I don't believe it was ever intended to be its sole use. To fully understand this you have to first remember what Reiki is - Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy. This means the energy itself is guided by a consciousness higher than our own. Some call the consciousness God, while others call it the higher-self, the name you choose to put to it is not significant, only the fact that it is not guided by us and always works toward our highest-good. As explained in the section on the attunement process, once attuned, we are connected, permanently, to the energy and its source. From that point on the energy begins working in our lives to heal us on all levels.

The first 21 days after an attunement is known as the 21-day cleansing cycle. In this cycle the energy works through one chakra each day starting at the root and ending at the crown. It does this three separate times, each time working to release any blockages, open the chakras and energy pathways, and cleanse out our system of toxins. This is often a very intense time where profound healings often take place.

After the 21-day cleansing cycle is complete, the energy continues working within our being, only not in the same manner. Just as in a session, the energy always works to bring about that which is in the highest-good of that person. Only now it is working on a much grander scale. It is now a part of who we are and begins to guide our life on whatever path it should be. This again will be different for each person, for everyone's path is unique. For some people this could bring about dramatic changes, such as relocation, a change of employment, even the ending of a relationship. It could be the ending of anything that is detrimental to you. For other people the changes could be much more subtle, but either way the changes do come, and the more a part of our lives we make the energy, the more of an effect it will have on us. It is important to realize that, for many, the thought of such drastic changes, and for some, the thought of any changes, tends to bring up fear. If this happens, remember that the energy works only toward what is in our highest-good and only gives us what we can handle. If we face these changes and issues brought up to be healed we will go through enormous personal and spiritual growth.

One effect I see Reiki having is many people's lives is that of a springboard. After learning Reiki and allowing the energy to integrate into their lives, many people begin having doors and possibilities opening up for them that they never knew existed. What happened for these people was that the Reiki energy acted as a springboard for them on their path. This is what happens when we find our path or "sweet-spot" and that is the Reiki energy works toward.

Another effect of learning Reiki is a direct result of the connection that is made between us and the Reiki source during the attunement. Once this connection is made, we become more closely aligned with Spirit or Creator or Source or whatever name you put to it, than we have been in our entire lives. This connection and the high frequency energy now a part of who we are raises our own vibration and brings us closer to a 4th dimensional state of being. With the increase in vibration we more easily perceive those beings of light that exist at a 4th dimensional state such as our Spirit Guides, Angels, etc., and we are more apt to be able to tap into that stream of consciousness. This is why so many people have their intuitive abilities awakened after an attunement and begin having contact with light beings.

The benefits of learning Reiki are as limitless as its uses. Each person takes the energy and makes it uniquely his or her own. The benefits I have listed here are only the ones that I have personally experienced, and are by no means meant to be comprehensive.
