What does the subject of this article have to do with the system of Reiki? Read on and find out how the two go hand in hand.
Take a piece of white paper.
If it is blank, there is the unlimited potential to draw whatever you want.
However, if there just one dot, line or word on it the possibilities become restricted.
Therefore, it is possible to see that a white piece of paper creates unlimited possibilities; complete openness with no restrictions while the sheet with the dot, line or word creates restriction.
Moving to the system of Reiki, let’s look at a hands-on healing session. Whether we are working on ourselves or others, during a session our minds need to be like that blank white sheet of paper. In fact, the more our minds are like the white sheet of paper the more possibilities there are for healing to take place; that is complete openness without any restrictions.
As soon as you hold on to a thought like “this needs to be healed”, ”this area needs more power” or “this person needs emotional/ mental healing” then you are placing a dot, a line or a word on the piece of white paper; thus, in turn, creating limited possibilities.
Thoughts get in the way of the natural flow of the energy, creating a restricted flow of energy.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could be the best vehicle possible for energy to flow through?
Just step away from placing any dot, lines and words on your piece of white paper, and rest in an open space allowing the energy to flow.
