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!

A Gallery: Meditation & Drum Journey Workshop in Fort Collins, CO

I had a group of 17 lovely people who participated in this workshop on December 14th, 2013 at my office in Fort Collins.

I began with a grounding meditation to ground, center, balance and create a safe space for them to relax into the Reiki Drum Journey. I set an intention for the group then performed the Reiki Drum Journey as everyone laid in a comfortable position and did some incredible healing and releasing.

I gave them all time after the Journey to journal their individual experiences. We had an open forum for feedback, questions and I tuned-in to some of their experiences. I closed the Workshop with another meditation allowing everyone to come back into their consciousness and feel open, healed, relaxed and ready to move forward!

I’m looking forward to hosting a similar workshop again in February or March, 2014. The class will hold 15-17 people comfortably. Watch my calendar for upcoming events.

A Gallery : Numerology Workshop in Fort Collins, CO

We had a fun-filled afternoon playing with numbers during my Numerology Class on Saturday, June 8th, 2013.

By using their full birth name and birth date, each student calculated various formulas to discover their life path, heart’s desire and soul’s urge among several other things. We also worked with formulas that gave everybody the opportunity to look at past and future patterns as well as behaviors from birth to age 72. It’s a fascinating class that shows students how to assess what’s ahead and be able to better prepare and understand what’s in the coming years and how to do things differently than they have in the past.

What a wonderful group with such beautiful energy that participated. I love and appreciate each and every one of these ladies and am so blessed to be a part of their journey!

Teaching Reiki in California

I recently traveled to California to teach Reiki Level I and II classes to a small group at Evolve PT & Yoga Studio in Encinitas, California. What an amazing experience!

Teaching Reiki In California : Ann Bibbey Blog
It was not only fun but a wonderful learning experience for me. This was a very open, highly intuitive group. They were very energetic and extremely enthusiastic the entire weekend. They participated in a way that was very profound. They interjected frequently asking really good questions and were very “present” in our group discussions.

Teaching Reiki in California : Ann Bibbey Blog

What set this class apart from my other classes I’ve taught in the past, is that I taught Reiki Level I then Reiki Level II the very next day, which I have never done before. There was a highly noticable difference in the students from day one to day two. They shifted in a HUGE way from Level I to Level II. They came to class that second day calm, balanced, focused and all knowing in their work as Reiki Practitioners on the tables. I was extremely impressed with the their comments, their healing abilities, and their feedback in class with one another. They worked on me at the end of the second day and were spot on in their intuitive abilities with me and what was going on in my body.

I was also able to attune Somer (of Evolve PT & Yoga) to Teacher Class when I arrived allowing her to assist me. She did a remarkable job of holding safe space alongside of me for these folks to really shift and move forward in such an amazing way! The experience was so positive on every level and I look forward to teaching these folks Reiki Level III this summer along with Reiki Drumming.

Reiki Myths – 3 Common Misconceptions

Reiki Myths : Ann Bibbey BlogThere are a quite a few common misconceptions surrounding Reiki. These exist within the non-practitioner healer community as well as just the general public.

Here are a few of them debunked:

1. Reiki only works if you believe in it

Reiki will work regardless of whether you believe in it or not, as long as you do not resist the flow of treatment. It is often thought that Reiki is a sort of placebo effect, requiring the belief mechanism within our own mind to generate healing or energy changes. This is also not true.

2. Healers are using their own energy to heal the patient

A healer or Reiki practitioner is simply a channel through which the healing energy flows. The source of the energy is the Universe, the God, the Creator, or the Source (or whatever you may choose to call it). Once trained and attuned, practitioners are capable of channeling Reiki energy throughout the patient.

3. Jewelry and other metal objects can block the flow of Reiki

The myth that metal objects can block the flow of the Reiki energy is a very common one. Some believe that healers and patients should not wear jewelry, but Reiki has been experienced and proven to work and “pass through” not only metal objects placed close to the body, such as jewelry, but also through walls, through mountains, across oceans, even across the entire planet – distance healing sessions are a very common practice in Reiki.
