Body Wisdom and Holy Fire Reiki
Updated: Jul 28
The body is wise and perpetually seeks healing. If you get a scrape, your body gets to work to heal the wound immediately – regardless of whether you are consciously focused on it. This became crystal clear when, about six years or so, I was looking for a roommate. During the search I met a gem of a human who shared learnings from a spiritual quest that they had been on. At the time it felt a bit random because social conventions like “people who come to look at rooms for rent do not sit and have long chats” [said robotically], fluttered in my mind. Bypassing that convention, I listened with intrigue and we ended up having a long chat. The wisdom they shared with me that night has forever imprinted on my soul and every now and then I find myself pondering the notions they shared, going deeper into my gratitude for our body’s wisdom.
The body does not contemplate worthiness or value, it does not blame or hold resentment; it heals. This is an act of love. That which does the healing is greater than our conscious mind yet we are not separate from this innate force and it is not limited to the physical. Emotional wounds, which can be compounded over time, can feel like a heavier burden because our mind and thought patterns, particularly stories we learned to tell about ourselves or about our environment, become entangled within. Over time, the energy and flow in our beings can become heavy, stagnant, or stuck. This may cloud ability to witness our divine perfection in each and every moment.
Reiki, a Japanese phrase made up of Rei, spiritual consciousness, and Ki, life force energy, supports your body’s innate healing mechanisms. Reiki creates space within our being, helping the body de-stress and relax. Reiki can support us to let go of stories that may no longer serve us – whether from earlier in our life or from what we may have picked up energetically in our day to day. Reiki breaks up long standing internalized patterns, imprints, and ways of being that, at one point, may have been necessary but are now no longer helpful. Because Reiki is deeply relaxing, it allows our nervous system a chance to re-set and come back into equilibrium. For folks who are highly sensitive (myself included) Reiki is especially beneficial in that it is both gentle and also cleanses us from all the various energies and environmental pollutants we pick up on throughout the day. In a nutshell, Reiki helps remove whatever might be getting in the way of your being; doing what it knows how to do best – heal.
Reiki is great if you are going through change or to prepare for change. At the same time, there also does not need to be any specific "issue" you are navigating to receive its benefits. In today's world and lifestyle, stress is often at the forefront therefore, Reiki is a lovely gift to give our bodies. It is a great compliment to anyone’s experience, offering space to relax and unwind.
