Here in the northern hemisphere, we are nearing the grain harvest. The sun is beginning to wane and active growth is slowing. You may notice that your body, mind and spirit follow the cycles of nature and you are called to slow down and take stock at this time.

At this time of year, we sense fulness, fruition, and fulfilment and it’s a natural time to pause and think about the achievements, lessons and precious moments that we have experienced so far this year. An opportunity to review our direction and decisions to ensure that they align with our intentions and values.

Repeating and meditating on the Reiki Principles can really help to get a grip on what matters to you and how you embrace it into your life.

Now, is a fantastic time to separate the wheat from the chaff. To take some time for reflection and Reiki self-healing while you feel gratitude for all of the amazing things in your life, the people, natural beauty, animals the way your needs are met and all of the abundance you are blessed with. Send Reiki through all space and time, in gratitude for all your blessings. Along with this comes the letting go of all that does not serve your highest good. Release any worries fear and anger and feel the loving, reassuring presence of Reiki in your life.

Some affirmations that you might like to use include:

I am blessed, I am loved, I am free.
I am grateful for my blessings and release what does not serve me.
I have gratitude for my many blessings.
I hold my blessings dear and release my fear.
I let myself flow with the cycles of nature.
With love and gratitude, I welcome the healing love of Reiki.

Article by Amisha Mehta

Just imagine, you are planning a vacation or an important meeting at your job has been scheduled and you just realised that they are dates of your menstrual cycle. The menstrual cycle can be quite daunting not only for you but also for others around you as most of the women are in an irritable mood and most vulnerable. The hormonal changes can drive her crazy that she can end up fighting with most of the people and on the most stupid reason. Many cannot travel or have to take leave at workplace because of the excruciating pain.

Menstruation, or period, is normal vaginal bleeding that occurs as part of a woman’s monthly cycle. Every month, your body prepares for pregnancy. If no pregnancy occurs, the uterus, or womb, sheds its lining. The menstrual blood is partly blood and partly tissue from inside the uterus. (source: Wikipedia)

One such case was of my client who had excruciating pain on her first two days of menstrual cycle that she had to reschedule her meetings, postpone her holidays and stay at home sleeping; taking meds and hot water bag to soothe her pain out. She got in touch with me and asked for Reiki healing for the same. So my Reiki healing for menstrual pain journey began. Since menstrual pain is governed by Sacral chakra, I started healing this chakra.

We started off once her cycle was complete. For the initial few days, I experienced lot of energy, the most amongst all my cases. This was partly due to her work also as she was into advertising, where her Sacral chakra played an important role as this chakra also governs creativity. Just before her cycle, I started getting intuition of giving her affirmations for menstrual pain which she had to write everyday for 5 times every day.

She kept postponing it thinking it was not necessary. When her first cycle came there was not much of a difference and I intuitively asked if she had started writing the affirmation and her answer was “NO”. I firmly said that she would have to do as I say if she wanted results. Thus she started writing her affirmations every single day. With the passage of time, I realised that energy levels have started to dwindle. Somewhere down in my heart, I knew that the client is “now fully healed, whole and complete”. But I continued my sessions as her cycle were due in few days and I didn’t want to take chance.

After few days I got a message stating “Amisha; what have you done. Have you done some magic? I am sitting in my office working on the first day of my cycle. I don’t even realize that I am menstruating. Thank you so much.” This message has and will always remain very close to my heart. I always believed in MAGIC and I just had done some. It was a moment of pride for me.

Even though my heart was right and I got the most wondrous message, I thought it was best to continue with the sessions and told her to write down affirmations for more six months. After few days I started to forget or felt lazy to do her healing and eventually I stopped her healing.

The procedure one can follow for healing menstrual pain is as follows:
  • Invoke Reiki Energies, your client and their’s as well as your masters, spirit guides and guardian angel.
  • Call upon AA Haniel and request her to heal your client’s menstrual pain.
  • Express gratitude to Reiki Energies, client, yourself and clients as well as your masters, spirit guides and guardian angels for being there for healing.
  • Ask Reiki Energies to help you heal your client’s menstrual cycle from the root cause.
  • Shield yourself from all sorts of negativity.
  • Make use of Master Symbol or you can make sandwich of power, healing symbol and distance symbol if not attuned to master symbol.
  • Allow the energies to enter your body through your Crown chakra right up to Heart chakra and Palm chakra and request them to flash out of your body from the Heart as well as Palm chakra.
  • Heal Sacral chakra for 15-20 mins imagining power symbol as well as the healing symbol for 21 times at each chakra.
  • Then close the session by first expressing your gratitude for Reiki energies, client and everyone else for being there. Thank Reiki energies for helping you heal menstruation cycle from the root cause.
  • Request the divine Reiki light to be with your client and thank them.
  • Send back the shield, masters, spirit guides and guardian angels after expressing your gratitude for helping you heal the client’s pain.

You can also give affirmations that are to be said every night before sleep or after they wake up at least for 25 times each. However, they can be said at any time of the day and for any number of times. I was guided to tell the client to write them down 5 times. They are as follows:

  • I accept my full power as a woman and accept all my bodily processes as normal and natural. (source: ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ by Louise Hay)
  • I love and approve of myself. (source: ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ by Louise Hay)
  • I thank Reiki energies for healing my menstrual pain.

Hoping the above procedure will help others heal their or their client’s addiction just like it worked in this case. In case of any doubts or further assistance feel free to contact me.

Article by Carrie Anderson

In October, my family and I lost our beloved Norwegian Elkhound. We were all devastated and had difficulty moving on. Our grief was real and palpable. As someone who stays home with her child, I regularly spent at least eight hours a day with our dog. The sudden loss of his constant presence, the feel of his fur, his movements, and his love of my cooking was not something I thought I could recover from. He was our first dog and while he was imperfect, he meant the world to me. I loved him for such a very long time and his absence felt like a shattering inside that couldn’t be repaired.

As a family, we knew we could never get another dog. We put away his things. Hung his leash, put his collar on display and framed some portraits of him. The winter was especially dark. I enrolled in a Grief Reiki course to help myself and my family. Slowly, our grief subsided into a more manageable loss and we could begin to recall fond memories of our dog.

As Spring came, I realized that the decision to never have another dog was not beneficial to my peace of mind, spirit, or soul. However, I was alone in the wanting of another pet. I began to look through the shelter dog postings, looking for one that reminded me of our beloved dog. None of them ever looked like him and they never had that soul piercing look in their eyes.

I took to Reiki to help ease the pain and asked for help in living without the presence of a constant companion and best friend. I used a Reiki box to ask that there be some way that a dog could enter my life and that I could spend time with one.

About two weeks of Reiki with this very specific intention, I discovered a new program through our local shelter. Volunteers would be able to take shelter dogs out for adventures. Daily, for two to three hours in the morning, a volunteer could take a dog, that needed a home, out to local parks. This was part of a new study that was researching the dog-human relationship. Time out of the shelter is extremely beneficial to the dogs. It would give volunteers time to learn more about individual dogs. Allow the dogs time to practice skills, be seen by the public and give them time in a less stressful environment.

Image by JL G

I quickly filled out an application and became a volunteer. I was part of the inaugural day for this new shelter program. Each dog that I took out was unique. It was an absolute delight being able to spend mornings with a dog, just hiking, walking, and talking. Looking in their eyes, I knew that they saw me as a friend, a person to spend time with, but there was a mutual understanding that I was not their new person and they were not my dog.

Since I do have my certification as an Animal Reiki Master, I asked the director of the shelter if I could also give the dogs Reiki. She readily agreed, which really surprised and pleased me. I explained that I would be home for several days without the ability to take any dogs to the park. I offered to allow a dog that might need more time alone to heal from surgery the use of my sofa for the day, with the understanding that I would also be performing a Reiki session if the dog allowed it.

I was scheduled to pick up a beautiful Pit-bull that had an issue with her front leg. However, when I showed up at the shelter, that dog had been sent to a foster home the previous night. Instead, I was handed a Blue Heeler mix. She was 9 years old, a victim of cruelty, neglect, and had been seized from her owner. She had just had an enormous mammary tumor removed, had a growth on her back, scale-like skin and had no fur around her neck. The shelter said they felt that she wasn’t highly adoptable because of her age and medical conditions.

I brought her home and she was instantly at home. She showed that she had impeccable manners, thorough love of life, that she wanted nothing more than to be beside you and to love and be loved by you. I tried taking photos of her, but they were all blurry. She wagged her tail so much that I could never get a picture of her being still. She took several naps by my side and calmly allowed me to administer her medication. She gladly accepted Reiki and put her head in my lap, with a grin. I asked for her highest good, for health, and a future life of happiness.

When it was time to return her to the shelter, I asked that if she were available the next day, that I would love to take her on another “adventure” even though it was more of a “relaxing time” than any kind of adventure. The next morning, I picked her up and she came home again. She allowed me to do another Reiki session, this time she fell asleep. I again used the intention for her highest good, for health, and for her future happiness.

I spent the evening regaling my husband with tales of this dog. Telling him how gentle, kind, loving, intelligent, wise, and beautiful she was and that she was so at home. She didn’t take up any extra space, she just felt like an extension of our family. He was completely against getting a dog, but he said that we could foster her. I had never thought this was even an option. I was just going to go to the shelter every day and take her out for a few hours until someone came to adopt her.

Due to her extensive medical conditions and age, I was allowed to begin fostering her the very next day. It took less than 48 hours for the family to realized that this dog was family. This dog was at home-our home was exactly where this dog knew it needed to be and we needed her here too. We waited two weeks to ensure that she was happy with us. As of this past Monday morning, she proudly wears dog tags that bear her name and our home address. She is a true Reiki miracle and blessing.

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

Beautiful Souls of Earth,

We send you love and light from the realms of the Ascended Masters. We speak to all of you who are (and also who have been) in romantic partnerships on Earth. On this full moon, we would like to bring your attention to two areas-

  1. Cords in romantic love
  2. Union of the Sacred Masculine and the Divine Feminine
Cords in Romantic Love

You have communed with a multitude of romantic partners across time and space, in incarnations on Earth and beyond.

You have shared a piece of your heart with numerous souls. Your heart has soared in love and joy with some of these partners while it has shut down in pain with others.

You have shared your physical body with numerous other bodies. Your body has felt safe and blissful with some while it has felt used and abused by others.

You have felt safe revealing your deepest emotions and your authenticity to some of your partners while you have felt unsafe and vulnerable with others.

You have experienced heartbreak. You have grieved loss. You have seen all kinds of breakdowns in love. You have had your heart broken by partners and you have broken some hearts too.

And maybe you’ve hoped that one day, you will meet the partner of your dreams, with whom life will unfold happily ever after. Or if you have met such a partner already, you possibly feel this is THE END.

We wish to say dear ones, that in this cosmic drama, there is no beginning and there is no end. Everything you’ve experienced with regard to romantic love simply is what it is. Romantic love is but one part of the soul curriculum here in Earth School. You may pick this subject for your own soul learning or you may drop it. It’s completely up to you.

However, we understand that when you incarnate into a physical body, it’s very natural to experience a romantic and sexual attraction to other souls. And hence many of you engage in romantic partnerships at some point in your lives.

Image by kalhh

If you have chosen a romantic partnership as part of your soul plan in this lifetime, we would like to applaud you and to cheer you on. A romantic partnership holds the potential to facilitate immense soul growth.

If you are in a romantic relationship right now, what does the ‘energy’ of your relationship feel like? Is it a soft energy? Is it mostly full of love? Is it nurturing? Or is it draining? Is it devoid of love and warmth? Is it fiery? Does it attract and repel all at once? Does it trigger your unresolved issues unlike anything ever before? Does it bring you closer to your partner and pull you apart in cycles?

No matter what it is on the outside, we urge you to look at the inside of the relationship. We urge you to feel the energy cords that keep you bound to your partner. It is but natural for cords to form in every romantic partnership. Not all of these cords are negative. Some cords are required to keep the energy flowing between the two of you. However, on this full moon, we wish to bring your attention to any negative cords that may have formed between you and your romantic partner.

Do you see any dysfunctional cords between you and your partner? What do these cords represent? Co-dependency? Control issues? Insecurity? Unhelpful patterns from previous romantic relationships? Conditional love? Resentment? Unfulfilled expectations? Need for completion? Guilt? Shame?

Being aware of these cords is the first step. Awareness can dissolve some of the negative charge associated with these cords.

The next step is to see if you feel ready to transmute these cords and to embrace a more empowered version of love. To feel so strongly rooted in yourself that you do not need a romantic partner to complete you. Instead, your partner becomes an equal soul that you get to grow and share your energy with.

Maybe you feel some anguish as you read these words, wondering how on Earth you can achieve this! You have experienced so much of pain in your love lives that what we ask you to do feels like a herculean task. Nonetheless, we would like to assure you that it is possible. You do not have to transform overnight. We ask you to move gently, one step at a time. Be very very gentle with yourself and your transformation.

And it shall happen…..

Union of the Sacred Masculine and the Divine Feminine

We encourage you to begin viewing yourself and your romantic relationship in terms of energy.

Are you connected with the Sacred Masculine and the Divine Feminine energies within you?

Every woman and man has both of these energies as part of their energetic makeup. In the new paradigm that is forming on Earth, it is not about men being only masculine and women being only feminine any more. It is about both men and women embodying both of these energies whenever appropriate, though it is natural for one of them to be dominant in your incarnation.

When you embody the masculine, you become the warrior, the doer, the achiever.

When you embody the feminine, you become the nurturer, the receiver and the being that flows with life.

We say it again – it does not matter if you are in a male body or a female body. All we ask is for you to tune in to the essence of these opposite energies within you. Feel the strength and toughness of the masculine and the softness and flow of the feminine. Once you are completely tuned in to your masculine and feminine energies, allow yourself to feel the electric like charge that is created when you bring these two energies in contact. Can you feel the fire that this union between the Sacred Masculine and the Divine Feminine creates? They are opposite in nature yet complementary to one another.

Let the Divine Union between the Masculine and Feminine first occur within you. And then it shall spill over into your romantic partnerships. As these energies come into union within you, you will be able to hold space for your partner to come into his or her own union too. And when two souls that have achieved inner union come together in outer romantic and sexual union, a whole new level of energy is generated.

We are confident, dear ones, that you shall make great progress in your romantic partnerships! Remember there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. Romantic partnership in the New Earth paradigm is about two imperfect beings that have achieved inner union coming together in the outer, as self-empowered and authentic beings of love.

We send you love and blessings
The Council of Ascended Masters

Article by Sneha Khanna

Growing up, we all hear and believe in different stories about various ‘mythical’ creatures. Eventually, when we begin to grow up into ‘real’ individuals, we just get swept off our feet by what the majority deems to be true and somewhere we forget that we once believed in magic, in unicorns, in fairies and dragons. Have you ever considered that perhaps, as a child you knew more than what you do when you grow up? When you are a child, you are more open to ideas and inspiration because your world view is untainted and far from being pre-defined. As you grow up, you condition yourself into being and believing what others tell you. The biggest thing that keeps us from experiencing magic is that we only start to believe what we can physically see. But true magic is experiencing what you believe.

Science has proven that the human senses can only perceive a certain frequency bandwidth. So, anything that is beyond this range on either side of the spectrum, is beyond our ‘normal’ perception. Energy healing basically taps into these frequencies that are beyond our perception, but do exist. And based on this premise, anything and everything can and does exist. The Unicorns, the enchanted forest, the dragons, the Angels, the Fairies, the Elves – any and all ‘mythical and magical creatures’ that we believed in as children but cannot physically see, perhaps exist on a different frequency bandwidth. I am an energy healer and I love tuning into these different frequencies. Trust me, it is nothing short of a magical experience and it is not my imagination! Several people from different parts of the world share similar accounts and descriptions for the same energetic experiences. This is because they are all tuning into something that actually exists – much like people from all over the world describing the Eiffel tower or the Leaning tower of Pisa. Everyone has more or less a similar description because they are experiencing the same thing.

I have always been fascinated by Dragons and to tell you the truth – a major pull in me watching the popular show, the Game of Thrones (GoT) were the Dragons!

If you look at physical attributes – we still have some traces of ‘proof’ of the physical existence of Dragons. We speak of dinosaurs that could fly, swim, walk the earth. You even have Komodo Dragons that continue to live on today. Physically, you would say, “Okay, perhaps they looked like what we assume to be Dragons, but they didn’t breathe fire!” Well, what if I told you that just as we can use energy to transmute and heal – perhaps this fire was energetic and on a different frequency so we could not perceive it with our human senses? So even though they could not physically breathe fire – maybe they could breathe energy that looked like flames in a higher frequency?

Image by Lilawind

Myths often tell us that Dragons were to be feared and they were not Divine/ Celestial beings. A dragon’s fury has always been glorified. However, my experience with working with Dragon energy has been the exact opposite. They are powerful, majestic yet gentle and full of healing. I will admit, I have been working with Angels for longer than I have been working with Dragons, and the energy is starkly different. While the Angels are powerful and high vibration, their energy is very gentle. So sometimes, when you are imbalanced or in a state of chaos it may seem as though they are not around to help you, even though they are doing all they can to help you out. It is only this, that your energetic frequency at that point, is a little unfocused to tune into theirs fully to feel their presence. While with Celestial Dragons, their energy is high vibration, high frequency yet strong. So when you need to clear your mental fog or need any form of energetic clearing that is pure, gentle, yet fiery – you can work with the Celestial Dragons.

Like everything else, intention and purity of heart are all that is really needed to call in their energy. In my experience, they work with the angels and ascended masters. So, if you have any fears about their energy vibration, you can leave them aside. Call upon them along with your Angels and Masters, and experience their powerful and instant healing. They too, work with different energy frequencies, and much like angels, may appear in different colours or light frequencies (if you are clairvoyant).

In fact, you can even ask your very personal dragon to reveal itself to you. And you will be surprised by the instant shift in energy around you.

As you can clearly tell by now that I am in love with Dragons! They are warm, loving and so fuzzy feeling!

Their energy is currently increasing as they are flooding into our planet to share healing and light, so establishing a connection with them will be quite easy. Just pure intention and a little faith will take you a long way!

Try working with them? They are all here to help!

Article by Deborah Lloyd, Reiki Master

Do you ever think you take life too seriously? If you make a minor mistake, do you criticize yourself silently? Or, do you take the opportunity to laugh at yourself? Are you able to recognize – and appreciate – the opportunities for humor in your life?

Taking life too seriously, and not being able to laugh at yourself, is a message that several of my Reiki clients have received recently. In each case, the client is a somewhat thoughtful, contemplative person striving to do the “right thing” all the time.

When explored further, there is an element of judgment within the categories of right vs. wrong. Life choices are generally not diametrically opposed. Usually, there are a multitude of choices, and what is “right” for one person is not necessarily the best thing for another. Or, what is a good choice for any of us at the present time in our lives may not be the best thing a year from now, or a month from now.

One of the great lessons of Reiki is to maintain a good balance in our lives. In today’s world, it seems many of us are consumed by demanding jobs, financial problems or challenging relationships. Being able to add energetic balance through laughter is a gift. Laughter produces positive energy within our beings. It brings lightness and joy into our lives. It can prevent energetic blocks from forming within our energetic bodies.

Image by StockSnap

An example of this was a client who accepted a new job and found the atmosphere in the new office was almost as tense and stress-filled than the one she just left. She was full of self-recrimination and shame. The healing energies of Reiki assisted her in releasing these negative thoughts and feelings. She was able to consider the many benefits of this new position – maybe it was not a mistake after all.

This client was able to broaden her perspective and find the humor within the situation. Rather than being upset about how her new coworkers interacted with each other, she found the humor in it. And, best of all, she was able to laugh at her first reactions towards the office atmosphere. She realized her expectations of how people should interact with each other in a workplace were unrealistic. She realized she had to re-experience a difficult atmosphere again, because she did not learn the lessons the first time. When an experience is repeated, Spirit is saying: “you didn’t get it before, let’s try it again.” The session ended with her gently laughing at herself.

Have you ever received a message from Spirit that had a humorous tone? It is a reminder to not take life so seriously. It is good to find the humor in the situations we create in our lives. It is good to be silly, or to watch a funny movie. It balances the trying day we had at work, or the tension within our homes.

When doing Reiki, set the intention to bring more laughter into your life – it will work!

Article by Carrie Anderson

One way that I like to use Reiki, is by using it as a guide to bring forth inner thoughts, subconscious concerns, or as a tool for some color therapy. sketches, doodles, drawings, images, or splashes of color. To practice this, I would recommend that you have a blank piece of paper and a selection of art supplies that you might want to use. I’m often drawn to graphite pencils, but I also keep oil pastels and colored pencils on hand. I also have a sketchbook that acts as a visual journal.

Things that you might want:
  • Colored Pencils
  • Oil Pastels
  • Watercolors
  • Drawing Pencils
  • Plain paper
  • Sketchbook

Once you have your workspace set up, think of an intention for this visual journey. Then while performing gassho, allow the Reiki to enter you. Think about your intention. Then using the Reiki, bring it to your blank piece of paper and through the paper. Allow it to be a channel for your Reiki energy.

Essentially, you are infusing the paper with the Reiki energy. Next, you will want to use the Reiki energy on the art supplies. Sense which supplies are the correct ones for you on this day and for this journal art. Throughout this visual exploration, I continue to use Reiki to help select the next color, pencil, shape, line, or to show where to add shading or erasures. I also allow intuition and Reiki to help me decide when this visual journal entry is complete for each session.

When you are ready to begin, if there are any images that have come to you then you may begin drawing that on the paper using whichever pencil, pastel, etc., you were drawn to during your Reiki intention and meditation. If there is no specific image that you want to explore, then using your intuition begin to doodle. Let the pencil or paint direct your hand. See what forms, when you are not actively trying to make a certain image. Let your subconscious come to play on the paper through the medium, shapes, and lines.

What this practice does, is actually several things at once. The pure act of just drawing or sketching is relaxing. It draws you into the texture of the paper and the colors that you select. This is a form of mindfulness. Being able to just be, in the present, with your sketchbook and supplies. You can also use this as a form of self-actualization. After you feel that your image is complete, take a step back and look at it with fresh eyes. What immediately strikes you? This is not an exercise in making art. This is using Reiki to help express yourself, a way to see what is on your mind, to see a visual of your conscious and subconscious mind. Do the colors that you have selected mean anything to you? What did you feel while using certain colors? Did you opt to not use color? Is there a certain feeling or sense that you are aware of once you see your sketch? Are the lines and shapes that you have drawn symbolic of a situation that you are going through? Were certain emotions or thoughts brought out by certain shapes or movements on the paper? Take some time to think about how you felt and what you thought while you were making this visual journal entry.

I do try to do this weekly. I can find myself drawing for almost an hour. I begin with no pre-conceived notions of the end product. I do have a sketchbook that I keep specifically for this type of Reiki journaling. Each entry is a representation of that day or time. None ever look similar and this always helps bring me peace of mind and clarity of thought.

I hope you are able to enjoy trying out this exercise using Reki, art, mindfulness and are awarded with satisfaction of creating a unique visual journal that represents you.

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

The presence of the Angels on Earth is getting stronger in the current time period. I experienced a spontaneous connection with the angelic realm soon after I completed my Reiki Master Degree in the year 2013. The Angels integrated their energy into my Reiki practice very naturally. Since then, I have been very passionate about the integration of Reiki and Angelic healing. I believe that the two streams go well hand in hand.

This article presents insights into some of the most frequently asked questions with regard to the angelic realm. If you are drawn to working with the Angels or making them a part of your Reiki practice, this will be of great help to you!

Who are the Angels?

The Angels are a group of High Vibrational Energies, who are egoless, loving and unconditional. They have immense love to offer to humanity. They can offer support and guidance to those in need. They are like ‘Cosmic Mentors’ sent straight from the heart of God or Source.

Are the Angels bound by religion?

The Angels are referred to in religious texts and are generally perceived to be associated with certain religions. While this is true from a human perspective, from a higher perspective, the Angels are pure energy. They are not bound by human boundaries of caste, religion, class or race. They see humanity as ‘One People and Consciousness’ and support everyone who reaches out to them.

What is the purpose of the Angels?

From a cosmic perspective, the purpose of the Angels is to help where help is needed. With regards to Earth, their purpose is to help create a bright, peaceful and beautiful planet. This is a sacred time on Gaia. 2012 served as a huge turning point for humanity, paving the way for the creation of a ‘New Earth.’

Consciousness levels are rising, old systems of functioning are receiving upgrades and emerging as more empowered systems, victim based consciousness is being replaced by responsibility based consciousness. Change does not happen magically overnight. It starts at the level of the individual. As individuals transform, the planet transforms.

The Angels help individual souls with their spiritual awakening and transformation, thereby indirectly assisting with the transformation of the planet.

What are the different categories of Angels?

There are many categories of Angels. However, the groups most significant for healers are the Guardian Angels and Archangels.

The Guardian Angels are the personal angels assigned to each soul. They stay with an individual soul from the time of its incarnation on the Earth plane until the time of its transition. As the name suggests, the purpose of the Guardian Angels is to keep watch over the soul and to assist its growth and development on Earth, in accordance with the soul’s plan.

The Archangels are a higher frequency of Angels. There are numerous Archangels and each embody specific virtues of the Divine Source or God. Some of these virtues include – love, courage, health, healing, abundance, positive energy, inner wisdom, creativity, and esotericism. When we connect with an Archangel, we take a step towards embodying the specific virtue associated with him or her. For example, if you work with the Archangel Michael, you learn to embody greater courage and purpose.

Can anyone connect with the Angels?

Yes anyone can connect with the Angels. No formal training or initiation is required to establish this connection. However, an in-depth study of the Angels and certain initiations can help deepen your connection to specific Angels.

How do I communicate with the Angels?

You can communicate with the Angels in three ways-

    1. Verbal – You can just imagine they are in front of you and talk to them like you would talk to a human being.
    2. Mental – You can connect with them in meditation.
    3. Written – You can also write letters or type emails to them.

No matter how you choose to communicate, the Angels will communicate back with you. They will not speak to you like a human or reply to your letter of course! They will instead communicate with you through sending you intuitive insights. They may offer you guidance in meditation. They may also communicate through other people or through synchronistic messages delivered on mass media or social media. In order for the communication to be effective, you must be alert and trust any insights that come to you soon after you communicate with them. It is also important to follow any guidance that they offer to you.

How often must I communicate with the Angels?

Every day!

Angel communication is similar to Reiki practice. Just as our connection with Reiki becomes stronger when we practice every day, our connection with the Angels also becomes deeper when we communicate with them every day.

As a Reiki healer, how can I integrate the Angel energy into my energy healing practice?

The easiest way to integrate the Angel energy into your Reiki practice is by calling them in whenever you practice self-Reiki.

I include the Angels when I recite the Attitude of Gratitude. It goes like this-

Thank you Haripriya. Thank you Reiki. Thank you Haripriya.
Thank you Reiki Grandmasters, Ascended Masters, Spirit Guides, Reiki Guides, Angels and the Archangels Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel.

I include the names of the four Archangels I most commonly work with. However, if I am working with other Archangels at certain times, I include their names as well.

If you are a Reiki teacher, you may also call in the Angels and Archangels while offering Reiki attunements.

Apart from this, you may call in specific Archangels to address specific issues when you give yourself Reiki. For instance, if you’re feeling fearful on a particular day, you may call in Michael. If you’re feeling unwell, you may call in Raphael. If you’re working on creative projects, you can call in Gabriel. And if you need help with finding some insights and answers, you may call in Uriel.
As you start calling the Angels in, your connection with them will get deeper. And your association and communication with them will begin to feel very natural.

Enjoy connecting with these sweet Beings of Light !

Article by Cynthia Stavrou

Each Reiki practitioner is familiar with Usui’s five precepts; principles by which to live a happy life. The more we align with the five principles, the more heightened our practice becomes. And each time we experience a little miracle, a drop of magic, within the practice of Reiki, we deepen our belief and faith in the process.

Each precept begins with the term “Just for today”. This reminds us to stay in the present moment, doing the best we can at any given time. Regretting a past that cannot be undone or worrying about a future that hasn’t arrived only hinders us and keeps us from living in the now. Just for today gives us permission to forgive ourselves for past transgressions and frees us from the impulse to try to control the future.

The first principle is not to turn to anger. Anger is a secondary emotion, a fierce reaction to fear or hurt. If we dig down to the source of our anger, we will discover a raw feeling of pain or fear. For example, if we are cut off in traffic, nearly escaping an accident we may get angry, but the underlying feeling is one of sudden fear. Or if we are treated disrespectfully, our anger stems from hurt feelings. Recognizing the feeling that is at the core of our anger is key to bringing ourselves back to an emotional center, allowing us the opportunity to move into the present moment.

The second principle is not to worry. Engaging in constant worry is extremely destructive to both our mental and physical health. There is absolutely nothing to be gained from worrying about the future or fretting about the past. There is a difference in being concerned about a situation and taking appropriate action and worrying about a future in which we have no control. Gaining clarity around how much control we have over the situation will help guide us back to a place of acceptance and peace.

Living in a place of gratitude is the third principle. We can all come up with things to be grateful for, and some days the list is longer than others. Gratitude can encompass both the big things and little things in life. Good health, loving family and friends, and financial flow are all big things that we are grateful for, but how about when one of these main areas is challenged by illness, loss of a loved one, or financial hardship? We can still be grateful for the sun shining, a place to lay our head each night, or the opportunity to brighten someone else’s world. Even in our darkest hours, we can be grateful that we lived to see another day. Practicing gratitude keeps us in the here and now.

The fourth principle is to do the work that is ours to do. This precept has more than one meaning. First, we are reminded to complete the work that is ours to do each day with honesty and integrity. Next, when one of our tasks is to support and be of service to another, we recognize that our work is not to fix anyone or try to take on their work. This principle is also a reminder to get out of own way and allow Spirit to work in our lives. Discerning the difference in what action is ours to take, and when to let go and let things unfold.

Loving and respecting all is the fifth principle. Sometimes when we strongly disagree or find ourselves engaged in conflict it is hard to remember that we are all divine souls having a human experience, and as such we are far more alike than we are different.

The key to living these principles is to take it one day at a time, acknowledging that we will not live each principle 100% on any given day. But by being mindful of when our thoughts stray to anger, worry, self-pity, frustration, etc. we can more quickly move back into our heart center. Practicing Usui’s precepts will ultimately lead us to more peaceful, joyful and fulfilling lives.
