Here in the West, we have Reiki teachers who have blended the Japanese healing technique, Reiki, with the Hindu metaphysical tradition of balancing and harmonizing the 7 major midline chakras. These 7 Chakras are balanced when each contains 1/7 of what we call major midline chakra energy.
For example, let us say you are a MOST loving and generous person, so much so that you cannot pay your rent because you have taken care of others and given all your money away. Most likely you have also “given away” some of your solar plexus chakra energy (self-esteem and personal power.) You are out of balance. In a Reiki session, the Universal Life Force energy that is Reiki would encourage the overage of energy in your heart to redistribute back into your solar plexus, allowing you to take care of yourself and understand that in order to take care of others, you must first be able to meet your own needs.
Many people come to me concerned about “blockages;” I prefer to use examples like the one above to illustrate that rather than being blocked, they are in need of a “tune up,” or more correctly, a “tune in!” With Reiki, we are able to tune into the needs of the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies and to encourage them to come back into the original state of being ~ one of harmony and balance.
I have been teaching all my life, but have never had the complete satisfaction I get from awakening others to their inherent Healing Energy!
