Normally I have everything under control, I know where these blog articles are headed in advance and it’s a matter of plonking this butt of mine down and letting the fingers do the work… Normally… There is nothing normal about this Blog Hop, nothing has gone to plan and you know what, it’s actually perfect… and in accordance with divine will…
This is my fourth hop and each one I have done has been different to the one before it. I am going to dispense with the typical and usual welcomes, and just say this; a hop is awesome, its wild and honestly you never know what is going to appear on them, so buckle up baby, you are in for one hellva wild ride with this one… Massive Kudos to our Wranger, Cat Hearder and Awesome Overlorde Karen for this one…
Let me back track a little, to the end of July; I had been on a de-armouring weekend that completely stripped me of explanation, story and fears as well. I had this new found confidence and I wasn’t afraid to challenge the normalcy and also live my truth not everyone elses, and put it this way it didn’t go down all too well, but then in all honesty I didn’t expect it to.
The funny thing about the whole experience is that I learnt about being in-service and about holding space not just for clients but also for myself as well. This then led me to wanting to learn about the whole thing in more detail from learning about acupressure to Chinese massage, to the Munay-Ki not to mention exploring past lives, trance and Qigong as well.
Right about now though I can image the question fluttering to the surface “What has this got to do with Reiki or this month’s topic?” – Everything and also nothing at the same time. Everything because it’s that whole Mercury Retrograde, which has a science and astronomy aspect as well as the astrology aspect as well, it also has nothing to do with it at the same time but here is the thing, Reiki for me is in everything, it is everything.
Reiki is a contentious topic, in religion it causes havoc; spiritualist churches disavow it and will not permit anyone that has been attuned to actively promote or make use of it because they consider Reiki not to be from the source, and yet spiritual healing as they define it comes from the exact same place as Reiki flows from it is just a completely different approach, needless to say I have very little to do with the SNU (Spiritualist National Union), I have more than a few times even before waking up to my potential gone head to head over various things with a president or two…
Over here in Scotland, my mum welcomed practitioners of Reiki and other natural and holistic therapies on to her wards more so during her time as a cancer care ward sister (not a manager… That in itself is another post), they had a special room set up on the wards for the therapists and if the patient wasn’t able it was done in their private room or behind a curtian for privacy. Unconventional runs in our family…
Science in the conventional sense I don’t think understands the fact it is sentient bio-energy that merges into symbiosis with a master/practitioner; to be honest I don’t even think many master/practitioners have realised this or even considered the possibility because they’re not ready to take that next evolutionary step in their thinking but I believe in time they will.
As for my GP, hell there is so much about me that she does know and so much more she doesn’t but I will say one thing, she is really open to my way ways of thinking, but then I know that she is not like other Doctors or GP’s and that is why I am with her. There has been a great change in attitude and it continues to change because even the medicine man or woman wakes up to the possibility there is more to life than a diagnosis. In fact there are times when we have taught each other something, which is rare in any profession.
There are instances when Reiki can cause an issue to wellbeing, but it is not what you might think; more and more now Reiki is evolving, sometimes this is for the betterment and then other times it can become a detriment, certain Reiki’s like Kundalini have evolved because there is a need but its evolved in the wrong way, almost like it is a fad or a jumping on the bandwagon, there are few who really understand this primordial energy. I can really only think of one or two people, Bonnie Greenwell has the only sensible approach to this energy awakening. Don’t get me wrong used in the correct fashion and approached with reverence and allowing Shiva and Shakti to be the guides you can at least understand your primordial nature and work in a limited way with that energy awakening.
Tantra and Kundalini often become confused, but they are not really the same thing at their core and I do not as yet know enough about Tantra to speak with any authority on the matter and I can barely speak about the Kundalini outside of my own awakening and research into it. However I know that I can help those who are ready to take that step along their awakening through Kundalini Reiki.
Coming back into the title now “Riding the Mercurian Wave” This whole week has been blurry, lots of transient shifts and a ton of realisations about, well about my own journey. Learning to hold space, learning to embrace and be fully present in myself opened my eyes to just how much spiritual ignorance exists. So many assume they know, assume they are experienced and awakened, but then when you pierce that bubble you suddenly discover that they aren’t experienced.
Riding this Mercury Retrograde Wave has been flagging up that I can actually walk my talk and quite literally am very prepared to shit where I sit, (which is not a nice experience) but it evokes the truth in having vulnerability, and the truth of having the feeling of weakness but in that weakness having the strength and the knowing, I have strength to push beyond my IBS limitations and overcome that boundary and do what I set out to do is liberating and shows just how much I am able to endure.
I have witness my darkness and I embrace and live in my light now, within this freedom I am able to see those who are embracing their truth and those who are textbook, literally lifting and spouting their training or lack thereof. These days when I am working or training I actively hold space and I may not de-armour using physical pressures and meridian lines but instead the Reiki heals and opens the student to their truth and fundamentally prepares them for their practitioner and master journeys respectively.
As for the spiritually blind, I have found myself shining a very bright light into their darkness and asking… “Why?”
Thanks for stopping by my Reiki Blog Hop, please feel free to leave me a few words or thoughts.
