Reiki healing for the dying

I recently received a call from a client who was interested in purchasing a Reiki treatment for a relative diagnosed with a terminal illness. As the person was rapidly approaching death, the caller was concerned about possible "negative" effects of Reiki on someone so ill. In particular, it seemed that that caller was fearful that a Reiki treatment might precipated the death of the loved one.

It is my experience, having been priviliged to send Reiki treatments to people who were dying, that Reiki treatments are preceived by the dying as very, very calming, very spiritual and very loving moments in time. The most memorable incident was reported by family of a woman who was dying in a hospital. A member of the then active Reiki Healing exchange asked the group to send Reiki to this woman. We all felt a very strong energetic connection, and the group sent energy for mind/body balance, distance healing and greatest peace. We all learned at the next meeting of the exchange that the woman reported having a very strong sense of angels being present in the room at the time the treatment was being sent.

In other instances, clients who have chosen to include Reiki as part of their dying process, many of whom took full advantage of all the modern medical treatments available, and some who did not, reported that they were able to move toward death with a greater sense of calm and spiritual well-being than they had thought possible.

In none of these instances did Reiki serve as a miracle cure to heal these people from the disease that ultimately ended their physical life. However, I was taught early in my training that sometimes death itself is a healing.

While this idea may be very uncomfortable at first, I find it to be true. It has not been my experience that Reiki has "caused" the death of a terminally ill person. However, as this blog is intended to be a vehicle for Reiki practitoners to share their experiences with Reiki healing, I welcome posts from those who may have greater experience than I with the process of sending Reiki to the dying.

Wishin you peace. Ann George

A frequently asked question about Reiki Distance Healing.

I have received several emails over the past few weeks from clients who have ordered Reiki distance healing. The questions asked all were relevant to the idea that the client could somehow interrupt the healing, or fail to receive the full benefit of the healing because they were unable to relax, were distracted, didn't "feel" the same effect for the second treatment as they did for the first. Of course, I answered each letter personally, but as the question came up more than once, I thought a small article on the topic would be helpful.

Once we have made the agreement that you will receive a Reiki distance healing, and you have sent the day, time and place that you want the treatment to occur, then.. the healing treatement will be sent as you requested. Other than cancelling or rescheduling the appointment, there is nothing you can do that will diminish the effect of the Reiki. You may not consciously experience the same remarkable effects if you are distracted, but the energy healing will occur all the same.

In fact, this is one of the reasons Reiki is such an excellent healing modality. The client is not required to do anything at all. In particular, when treating small children (at the request of their parents of course) or the elderly (at the request of their children), stroke patients, or even animals...this energy fact makes Reiki the modality of choice.

Further, because the flow of Reiki is so gentle, and because Reiki seeks to restore balance & purity to the human energy body as well as the physical body, many of the effects of the treatment are quite subtle and manifest as a sense of calm well-being as the the healing reverberates throughout the body. Often the results unfold over a period of three days.

It is true that some people have remarkable experiences when receiving Reiki treatments. This does not indicate that those who have a profound reaction receive more healing than those who are unable to perceive anything unusual at all. The beauty of Reiki is that this natural healing energy works with the body, mind and spirit of each individual to bring about the best possible outcome.

I hope you have found this small note useful. I send you all best wishes!

Reiki Healing - What to Expect

I recently received the following question:
"I wanted to know what results i could expect from both the distance healing and the other candles."
As it is a very good question, I decided to publish the answer below.

It is important to differentiate between the benefits available from energy healing from those available from the use of ritual healing candles, Reiki charged or otherwise.

The first important difference in the result stems from the way in which the modalities are applied. With energy healing and/or distance healing, the presence of the healer, the intent of the healer, and the channeled energy are "external causes" for healing.

The results vary from person to person depending on a number of factors. In general, everyone who has received a distance healing from me has reported at least one of the following benefits:
Relaxation, Improved Peace of Mind & a Reduction in Symptoms.
Some clients have reported remarkable improvements in their condition.

It is important to note that people request healings for disturbances in the physical, mental, emotional and/or spritual bodies. Depending on the length of time that the condition has been present, the severity of the condition & the overall willingness of the client to be healed... one treatment may be all that is required. For other conditions.. several treatments may be required.

With a ritual healing candle there is an "internal cause" for healing which is benefited by external support (the candle color, fragrance, and the light itself). My ritual candles in particular come with an affirmation which is to be repeated daily in a "ritual" setting. The application of the ritual instructions, coupled with the affirmation & benefit of the candle itself, facilitate healing consciousness for the user.

The power of the mind to heal can not be understated! When used as instructed, and most important -regularly- the healing benefit of a ritual candle is actually the healing benefit of retraining the mind to accept what often seems impossible - healing.

I invite you to refer to my guest book to review some client comments relevant to energy healing.. as well as comments about the use of candles.

I hope this reply is helpful.

Most sincerley,

Ann George
