We carry our masculine energy in the right side of our body and our feminine energy in the left side. The goal of Reiki is to balance the two energies, creating harmony in our mind, body, and soul. Although this is a continual process throughout our lives, creating balance within us in order to maintain happiness, health, and harmony; living a holistic lifestyle can help us maintain our balance more often than not. When we learn how to witness our lives rather than controlling them, we depend more on our intuition to recognize when we are out of balance. Learning the skills to bring us back to balance is the key to a peaceful life, because peace starts within us.
An example of this would be if we have repeat pain or injuries in the right side of our body, we are struggling with emotions tied to a masculine figure. This can be a relationship with a male figure in our life. The root cause ties back to the experiences we had with them to create our own imbalance with our masculine energy.
This could be as simple as a memory with a male figure, or a lifetime of adverse patterns that created these emotions. For example, one might have experienced constant conflict with their father growing up and felt that no matter what they did to please him; he did not appear to notice. This will cause a lifetime struggle with one’s masculine energy until they identify the pattern and release it. Although the past cannot be changed, our perception of it can.
Reiki can help release the patterns and fill us with love and light for ourselves. It will help us realize that the opinion of others does not matter. It is our opinion of our self that matters. If we love our self and are true to our self, the opinions of others are just that, their opinions. No one else can define who we are unless we give them that control.
This photograph displays some basic information relating an area of pain to generic emotions or thought patterns that may be causing blockages. Reiki releases those karmic and emotional patterns should we choose to allow it. In my Reiki practice, I learn early on what is ailing the client physically. Before I even start a session, I relate the pain to a generic emotion resulting from a generic thought pattern. As I work with the client I often learn the specific life experience or set of experiences they may have had that created the original thought pattern that resulted in an emotional blockage. I work on releasing the old patterns and opening them up to self-love and acceptance. I encourage you to try Reiki healing in order to release the old and open yourself up to a whole new balanced you.
