Vacation – A period of rest from work or study.
I recently did a session where the client had not come for quite a while and then he started coming back again. This happens, it’s part of the spiritual healing adventure many of us are on and I respect each person’s individual journey. I also appreciate greatly the clear determination that it takes to stay on this path of Truth, Love and Light. I’m always happy to see my clients come back again and I let them know this.

You can’t get to the victory and triumph phase without going through the drudgery and struggle phase. What more interesting humans we become through the more difficult phases.
I found this client and others, from time to time, hesitant at first and seeming a bit scared to come back to see me. Although, here they were in my Reiki room for a session. I understand why clients are sometimes a bit hesitant because often coming to see me for a session of energy healing and psychic work means delving deep into issues that they want gone, but maybe aren’t ready to deal with head on quite yet. Dealing with some important emotions that have been buried for a long time or making changes to one’s life can often times be more than what one is ready for. It also means CHANGE. Ooooohhh that scary word. That’s ok. It’s all good! It’s important to honor the path each person choses to take no matter how long it takes or how rocky it becomes. This takes patience on all parts to know when the right time is to tackle the next big issue and determination to not give up before one has reached their healing goal.

At times like this, I recommend taking a Reiki Vacation. This doesn’t mean stopping the Reiki, it means allowing yourself to throughly be absorbed INTO the Reiki. Allowing the Reiki to relieve your stress, release your tension and help you feel like you’ve been on vacation for a week instead of on my table for an hour. Allowing the Reiki to give you a period of rest from work or study. Doing the Reiki, but taking a break from the deep emotional stuff that you are not quite ready for yet. How do we do the Reiki and take a vacation from it at the same time? Good question.
Break the Pattern
Usually this means simply doing something different. Try taking a break from the psychic information that I receive while doing a session. Most of my clients want me to be “turned on” to the flow of psychic information while I’m working. They like receiving information about them, their family, significant other, pets, job, etc. However, sometimes it means facing things that some people feel are pretty heavy or deep, and that can at times seem off-putting. It’s not the information that is scary, I’ve found, but actually dealing with the emotions and the change that may come up that is usually difficult for people. It can also be me and the fact that I symbolize to them the working on of deep issues more than the actual information I receive. Most of the time receiving the psychic information is exciting, fun and not intimidating at all, That’s why people like it. Plus they can feel that we are healing levels deep down within them that they may not have known about otherwise. It’s very cool.
Quite often people are so used to me being “turned on” during a healing session that they come to believe that is how a Reiki session always is. Not so at all. The psychic information I receive from my guides is a whole other component TO the Reiki session that I can add in. But, it is NOT the Reiki. My guides are talking through me and working with me, but it is not the Reiki. The Reiki is the ‘Divinely Guided Life Force Energy’ that comes through me to heal blockages in the client’s body, not the information itself. That is different.
Reiki – It’s all Good!
Take a break from the information if you feel this will help. I have done this in these situations and it seems to calm the person and allow their energy to flow smoother, the stress to leave faster and their emotions able to be back at a more neutral level where they can then make good decisions from an intuitive place rather than a stressful place.
The Reiki is all good, the healing energy is Divinely guided and knows exactly what you need. It will never give you more than you can handle. The Reiki will never go faster than you are ready for. It goes and does exactly what you need it to when you need it to. Often times, in fact, when people need a respite, my guides will automatically GIVE my client a rest by turning off the information anyway. At this point, my client and I go very deep into meditation during the session so the Reiki can do its work. My clients come out of it saying “WOW, what was that, that seemed really deep!” But, they still aren’t sure what happened because they can be so used to me telling them. Sometimes, we just have to go with how we FEEL and TRUST that. Clients who are used to receiving information will sometimes be sad that they didn’t receive any. I explain that the Reiki does exactly what they need and what they needed was JUST the Reiki. I find that the more we trust this Divine energy, the more it can do the best for us.
Surrounded by Love
Much of the time I feel the Divine healing energy adjusting to a very fine, very soft and pure loving energy to bathe or surround the client in total Love and Light. I’ve had clients tell me afterward that it was the only time in their lives they ever had felt completely safe. Or they say that they could feel the Love surrounding them like they were floating on Love and Light. Almost every time my client tells me they feel lighter afterwards and less stressed. Yeah! Isn’t that what we want!? Yeah, Reiki Vacay!!

You Direct the Reiki
Reiki will always go with your highest good. It will never impede your free will, and neither will I. Therefore, if you are not ready to work through a big issue, it will not force you to. It will simply bathe you in Love and Light and beautiful healing energy until you are ready. The good news about that is that because you didn’t give up, you kept coming for Reiki sessions and bathed yourself regularly, you will be strong enough and ready to focus on the big issue sooner and it will be much easier to do so. By that time, the so-called “big issue” doesn’t seem so big anymore and it leaves quite easily. I have seen this over and over with clients who Reiki on themselves regularly. They Reiki themselves diligently and by the time they get to me, they are ready for me to take out the mountainous energy that has now been whittled down to a small mole hill. It’s beautiful.
And think of all the amazing patience you are learning through this journey! Absolutely inspiring!
Wow, why do I feel like taking a trip to Hawaii all of a sudden!?
