Why Reiki?

Why Reiki : Ann Bibbey BlogYou have heard of it, the mysterious training called Reiki. And curiosity piques your interest, ‘How does it work? Will I change if I become schooled in its attunements? What is happening when I receive a session, or even give one?’ And the questions go on and on…

This is because from the earliest writings about human beings, and their health, the existence of the subtle energy of the universe and the subtle energies of the human body stand as a statement that we are much more than what meets the eye.

There are many reasons to take a Reiki I class and begin your journey, possibly eventually learn more, or even become a practitioner (there are three levels or degrees in this school of spirituality training and/or energy medicine, as well as a Teacher-Master level.) Your reason is the basis for your choice, but perhaps some inspiration will touch these desires here. The word itself is certainly compelling. The Japanese word is a combination of two concepts: rei-Spirit and ki-universal energy or breath and basically means Spirit in movement as consciousness or universal energy. While the formal system was developed in the early 1920s by Mikao Usui records date back to the 300 BCE era to this ‘inward training.’ So Why Reiki?

First of all, Reiki offers a systematized way to learn about, and work with, the energy that informs us and yet goes unseen. It is a way of getting to know ourselves and others, and can give understanding when we ‘sense’ or ‘intuit’ things to aid us. Generally speaking, the trains of thought around subtle energy hold that the physical part of who we are is the densest, and comes forward from the lighter energy. So to experience and understand the subtle energy would empower you to create a life with greater health and joy. Barbara Brennan, in her groundbreaking book, “Hands of Light,” states that all disease comes from beliefs, and the ways we respond or interact with these beliefs. All of this takes place in a dance between Life Force, and the assimilating subtle energy bodies, creating and leading to the physical bodies we claim as ‘us.’ In very simple terms, we can liken the physical body as the fruit of the rest of who we are.

Secondly, Reiki gives us a playground wherein we can help others, in any arena of our lives. It can be a developed skill, an education if you will, that forms us to be better listeners, or to grow confidence in our intuition as real and worthy of following, or even to use directly by the laying on of hands to channel Life Force to those that turn to you. In essence, Reiki enhances the intuition, raises our vibrations and develops or increases self-confidence in all areas of one’s life. It’s such a great tool for helping us deal with life’s situations in addition to the healing aspect which is a gift to use on ourselves, pets, plants and others.

A mystic, Teresa of Avila once said, ‘What if you entered a foreign country and everyone asked you, ‘where are you from? And what is your name?’ and you responded, ‘I, uh, don’t know where I am from and have no idea of my name.’ this sounds ridiculous, but it is a perfect example of how little we know our true selves.

Last, Reiki opens up new ways to connect to the universal Life Force. The more we remain open to Source, the more our lives are enriched in unexpected ways, the more synchronicity knocks upon our door, brightening our gratitude for being alive.

Avoidance Is Never The Answer

Avoidance Is Never The Answer - Ann Bibbey BlogThere is no doubt that we have all (at some point) experienced emotional trauma, pain or loss. Many of us have had our hearts broken wide open. These are opportunities that have been handed to us to change, heal and do things differently. I am not talking about when we “bulldoze” through these times and never deal with them. If we go this route we will never grow through pain. We will continue with the same defunct inner programs and unhealed parts, and continue attracting and experiencing the same pain, angst, and disappointments in life.

If we really own and look at these opportunities we realize there is no other option other than to deal with our disowned parts and heal because we are not going to be able to get back on our feet and create a great and meaningful life unless we do. And no “other person” or the “next relationship” will do this for us. We ourselves must do the work. This is a wonderful thing! Because when the fear of staying the same becomes greater than the fear of changing we are in the perfect position to take responsibility, be with our pain, heal our inner programs and unfinished childhood business, and transform into the individual and life we really want to be.

If we avoid doing this, we don’t have this opportunity. We are not being true to ourselves and will live a false existence. And without fail, life will inevitably deliver more of the same (in different ways) painful unhealed programs as disappointing and painful experiences. It’s the cycle of attraction. We receive what we put out there and it’s something that can perpetuate throughout an entire lifetime if we don’t change it.

It’s time to shift our perception as it’s the only way to feel complete freedom and begin a journey of authentic happiness, peace and joy!

The Joy and Pain of Spiritual Growth

Spiritual Growth - Ann Bibbey BlogWe often spend many years staying caught up in old thoughts & patterns of belief, with old tapes and stories running through us. We take these on as a part of us and “accept” them…even hold on to them because we know them, they are familiar. Even if they do not serve us on any level, we believe that they belong to us and that they are “ours.” We will actually long for them even when we’ve cleared them. The stories we tell ourselves and the inner dialogue we engage in is endless.

Shifting & changing this is not an easy journey and can be extremely painful. We must become intensely honest with ourselves and yearn for the life we know deep in our soul we deserve and must change things in order to be there. Often times we will take two steps forward and 10 back in the process. But for every struggle, every set-back we discover who we are on a deeper level and must be grateful for these struggles as they are opportunities & experiences that lead us to who we really are and who we want to be, NOT who we were told we are.

Challenges serve us in being the greatest version of ourselves. It is actually the biggest set-backs, the hardest struggles that are the exact experiences that force us to be greater than we’ve ever been before! The beauty is that when we reach the other side of these shifts in life, knowing we had hope & faith and asked for help along the way it gets easier. We are able to surrender and be in a place of peace & realize we can trust in the master plan & “allow” ourselves to listen to our inner guidance and discover why we are here.

There is nothing more beautiful than the transformation that occurs when we “let go”, do the inner work and show the world the very essence of who we are…our authentic self!
