I Found Reiki, Then Reconnective Healing Found Me
Freedom is a Joyous Expression of the Soul where limits seemingly disappear. I say “seemingly,” as these limits may have existed in some reality, yet they are truly an illusion we have allowed to have shape, form and substance.
Our choices in our journey give us permission to add character(s) to our lives. I share with you my personal experience in discovering an incredible freedom in my own life.
Understand, everyone has his/her own personal relationship to everything, so, as I said, this is mine...
I first remember hearing about Reconnective Healing in 2004. At the time I was a practicing Reiki Master Teacher, as well as having studied and practiced various other modalities of healing.
For me, Reiki was a beautiful way to interact with people, and myself, and recognize that I was able to make a difference for people in their lives in many ways: mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
I engaged in the following rituals, techniques, in my practice:
- I cleansed the room before sessions in a variety of ways. (Sage, Candles, Incense, prayer, essential oils, intentions, crystals, etc.) Not always all of them, yet very often most of them.
- I scanned the energetic body of the client and their chakras to determine the areas of greater density and those spinning “off” from the others, so I would basically be diagnosing what areas needed specific work/symbols/time etc.
- I worked with various Reiki symbols and hand positions, physically touching the body and placing intentions throughout the session.
- I called in my guides to assist with every session.
- I received visions and information and often shared the interpretations I felt were appropriate for the person to understand.
- I would also assist people in interpreting their own visions and sensations.
To me, Reiki felt very loving and compassionate. Yet, I felt the person was relying on me, on my presence, and my interpretations of the experience. People did not often seem to step into their own mastery. They often returned again and again. Perhaps for the good feelings they felt, or perhaps for the loving attention they received.
When I went into a Reiki session one day, I felt a knot in the pit of my stomach. It was odd. Yet, I proceeded with the session. The next client came in and the knot in my stomach returned. This happened with three clients in a row. I finally asked (internally), “What is this about?”
I received an answer without words. It was a powerful feeling in my body. I felt, “It’s Bigger. It’s Easier. It’s More.”
I found myself in a bookstore soon afterwards and the book The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself was on the shelf, lit as if it had a spotlight. I touched the book. I instantly felt a surge of electricity spread through my body like Lightning! I was trembling and pulsating. I opened the book and read: “You don’t need the candles, You don’t need the flowers, You don’t need… et cetera, et cetera, et cetera…”
I laughed out loud and felt “I know!”
Everything in my practice changed after I picked up the book. It was several months before I could attend the Reconnective Healing Training Program. Yet I felt a surge in my body, and in my session room, before each of my sessions began. My clients started to respond as Eric described in his clients’ experiences in the book. I knew I was accessing something bigger... easier... MORE!
When I attended the RH training and engaged in the exercises to discover, access and recognize RH more fully, I felt like I was a Hot Air Balloon Being Filled to Capacity! I knew I could not go back to drawing symbols or cleansing space or interpreting for people what I felt they needed to know. I was able to let go of everything I had been “doing” previously and simply “BE” present with the RH frequencies.
I began allowing the Universe to be present and simply “know” all was being received as appropriate for all.
When I began practicing Reconnective Healing I experienced a Freedom I cannot express. It is bigger than there are words to explain.
Allowing the Universe to be present in the fullness of expression, without interfering or feeling I need to “add” techniques, interpretation or symbols, is beyond anything I have ever felt.
My RH clients (and I) receive more than I have ever known when I was practicing Reiki or other modalities. Healings are much more instantaneous and are described as being experienced in greater scope in all areas of their lives.
In Reiki, I often wondered if I could have improved what I had offered in the session. I wondered if I could have done better, or what if I did “that” instead the “other.” I questioned myself after nearly every session. I believe I felt this way because, as a Reiki Practitioner, I was taught to make my own choices in the session based on the “diagnosis” of scanning for the imbalance, and to add my own interpretations of what was being received. While my clients and I often felt a sense of peace and joy from the sessions, there was always room for error.
I have never questioned my participation in Reconnective Healing. I have always known it is being received in perfection. The Infinite Intelligence of the Universe is always present. I feel the most tremendous Freedom in this Knowing.
I am always In Great Joy with Reconnective Healing.
I leave this open to your own interpretation, as it is for your own understanding.
Much Love, Joy and Freedom to You!
In January 2020 I will host an RCPP Level III- certification for practitioners. You must have first completed the Portal (Level I) and attended a Catalyst Program There is a Catalyst (Level II) program in December 2019 in Palm Springs, California.
