The great attention that is of necessity, it would seem, directed toward the maintenance of the physical vehicle is that which seems to take a disproportionate amount of one’s time, and the efforts planning for the sustenance and comfort of the physical vehicle then becomes an activity of the mind as well. The mind is focused for a great portion of each day with those matters which concern the survival of the entity which seems to be made primarily of body and mind, and these efforts are those primary expenditures of energy for each entity within your illusion.
There comes a time, however, when each entity begins to ponder, in those moments of rest and silence, just what more there might be within the daily round of activities and the overall plan of the life than the continual maintenance of survival and expenditures of these kinds of energy. It is then that the seeker becomes aware that there is that which is not material, and frequently does not carry a certain name, and yet forms a kind of yearning within to know more of the nature of the life, the nature of the creation in which the creature finds itself, and the source of all that occurs about one and within one.
And thus the yearning to know what is loosely called the Truth begins to inform the activity of the seeker, so that as it focuses upon the survival of the physical vehicle and the directing of the mental energies, it also has within a secret and safe portion of its being, the room for seeking greater truths and more nourishing perceptions of reality and the self.
Metaphysical, spiritual or energy healing – and one of its most known forms, Reiki – is a subject which is very often touched upon in the messages of the Confederation of Planets channeled by L/L Research. In a small series of blog posts we’ll present some of the outstanding extraterrestrial views on this topic.
We’ll start off with quotes from a Q’uo session from 1990, six years after the Ra contact had ended during which a lot of information about the principles of metaphysical healing was given. In another session later Q’uo (The Principle of Q’uo in most cases consists of Hatonn, Latwii and Ra, three extraterrestrial population from density four, five and six.) states that both, Reiki and Ra‘s descriptions, are congruent with each other.
But in this first post about Reiki and related healing techniques we’ll begin with quoting from a full session on Reiki, which starts with a few “handbreaks” and “security belts” before we enter the topic more deeply:
Group question: The question this evening has to do with Reiki energy. Some within the Reiki movement would say that the energy that is used in healing in the Reiki technique is a specific kind of energy that is different from the universal energy that anybody might be able to tap into at any time and use for healing. What we would like to know is, is the Reiki energy any different than this general type of energy that people use for healing, and if it is, what exactly is the difference, and how is it used? May anyone tap into that kind of energy, or must one have the specific Reiki training?
It is with great pleasure that we bless and greet each of you in the love and in the light of the infinite One. We are those of Q’uo, and feel greatly honored to be asked to join in your meditation, and to take a few steps with you upon your path at this time. We are sorry to repeat the same caveat each time that we speak, but each time that we speak it is necessary in order for free will to hold full sway. Beware of listening to these words or any others with an eye to a rigid belief. We could be wrong, indeed, all could be wrong in terms relative to the illusion in which you live, or in terms of your personal needs and truths; perhaps not wrong for us, perhaps not useful to you. Therefore, discriminate carefully in what you take in of what we say, discarding that which does not seem to be half remembered, so that your responses are, “Yes, I recognize that truth.”
This evening the question concerns healing, specifically the Reiki healing, also any form of the laying on of hands. To approach this subject, we must state a few premises upon which we base our opinions. We consider it as an easement rather than doing metaphysical healing work when one self attempts to heal, and perhaps does heal another by the force of his own will and gift. Neither the healer nor the suppliant gains for very long. Often those who heal because of a gift do it simply to make their life more comfortable because, as people value their health, so they value one who makes a poor condition feel much eased. Unless the one to be healed allows the healer of this type to remain within himself, and not take in the implicit demands of such a link betwixt two entities, there can be much deleterious effect upon the healer, for to the healer’s mind there are two selves, one self serving the other self. There is no focus and concentration upon the Creator, the giver of all gifts, the source of all things.
With these two caveats reminded we can move on a small step further into the workings of the healer/healed relationship:
It is a kind of power which is much appreciated, but one who has such power has an extraordinarily difficult task in disciplining himself to refrain from taking upon himself any credit for that which has been given. This is seldom the case. Consequently, the form of healing by natural gift—without the temperament to see the Creator at work in the world through the manifestations of such as he—will always be limited, unable to advance because of a blockage of his own perceptions concerning the separation of himself and the person considered to be ill.
Ra has spoken similarly (in 60.11) along these lines, saying that things would also generally become easier for any healer if one understood that their responsibility ends at providing an opportunity for self-healing. Q’uo reminds us of a last concern to make, which could be true for a lot of services offered in the esoteric field:
The other difficulty with this type of healing process is that it does not last. An effect is felt by the will of another upon the will of the self. The body of the ill person may respond to the help, but permanence is not something human. Consequently, it is folly to expect a human believing that the power is his can do even as much as we have described; nevertheless, this is so.
But then the factual other side of metaphysical healing is brought forward in Q’uo‘s fascinating and clear own terms:
The healing gift which is most prized is a self-healing that is the prerequisite for any type of work in consciousness. It is not necessary that one be perfect, which is fortunate in your density, for you are not designed to look or feel perfect at any time. It is sufficient that you see yourself as a channel through which an infinite amount of energy, power, grace and healing may be offered. You may even see the channeling of that gift as a manifestation of that gift, but not a gift given by the channeler, for the channeler has given itself to the contact. Thus, many healing modes, such as Reiki, do indeed create a catalytic environment in which, through love alone, the protective field of the body is opened, and an opportunity given for the entity to allow itself to heal. Thus, those who train to become healers may work in consciousness much as do those who learn to channel, or simply to do the will of the Creator.
Reiki is designed for those who are able to become quiet
The Reiki healing is of the second kind. Because it is not of this culture that you enjoy, it is difficult for most people of your culture either to practice it or to benefit from it, for it takes a kind of sensibility which is not distracted, but is at peace. Your people are normally greatly overstimulated. There are many people, things, chores and considerations, some of them literally beating the ears, some of them beating the heart that has not forgiven itself. Reiki is designed for those who are able to become quiet and allow themselves, as a hollow pipe, to be used as a catalyst for opening the body’s opportunity for self-healing.
We’ll end our first part of the series with Q’uo‘s next statement in that session which closes the circle of the seeming dilemma that “to the healer’s mind there are two selves”:
There is no mode of healing that does not benefit many, but those which are desirable are those including Reiki which realize that there is no separation betwixt he who puts hands on the body of the patient, and the patient, for at that time, and with the protection of spiritual guides, the entity drops all barriers, defenses and armor, and makes itself vulnerable, empty and asking, and in humility, it receives the gift it has been given and passes it on, knowing that it is no more responsible for the healing than the water faucet is for the water which comes through it.
Now we move on to that subject of the stumbling block in general. Every so-called stumbling block is most important for any seeker, whatever nature the stumbling block may take. For it is not the purpose of your illusion nor of your incarnation to move smoothly without the jolts and jangles and stumbling from time to time. It is in such upsetting of the journey that all is shifted about so that there needs from time to time to be a reassessment of that which has been gained and that which is sought and the means for doing so by the seeker of truth. It is at such times that whatever spiritual strength that has been gained by the seeker is put into play and is allowed its full reach that the seeker, as the young kitten, may test itself and roll and tumble with life and its catalyst, if we may so pun, and find that new synthesis of being. The continuation of the journey of seeking is that which is most important for it is an infinite journey and each stumbling block does not in truth hinder the journey but truly speeds it by providing the opportunity for that which is old and worn and no longer useful to be discarded and for that which is a new possibility for the seeker’s consideration to be placed before the seeker’s mind.
