You may look at your energy centers, red through violet, as a means of shining your light, shall we say, in short. When the Intelligent Energy of the One Creator moves from the Logos, from the Sun, to your energy field, the magnetic attraction of this energy through the red ray energy center, is that which begins your appreciation of catalyst in your life experience according to the choices that you have made previous to your incarnation. The lessons that you wish to learn are all embodied within various of the energy centers, and as the Intelligent Energy of the One Creator moves within your energy centers, you are then able to perceive it according to the, shall we say, coloration or choices made previous to the incarnation. This energy seeks to move upwards, arising into eventual union with the One Creator in the indigo ray energy center. For indeed, at this center, the crown is already upon the head and you are potentially, the Creator, for the Creator resides there waiting for your discovery.
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 this quality of being unknown is what we have sometimes called the quality of mystery. And it is mystery which characterizes as best as we have been able to discern, the One Creator in its undistorted self. But we would also like to suggest that the mystery of which we speak is a mystery which resonates down through every distortion, every facet, and every iota of the creation. This mystery is available for participating in, and to our experience, limited though it may be, love is always the most eloquent, the most searching, and the most fulfilling way of participating in the one central mystery which is the Creator Itself.
And so, in the infinitesimally articulated experiences, down through all the densities, and in manner upon manner of creaturely existence, beyond the wildest imagination of any particular creature, there is available the possibility of taking up a direct relation to the one mystery of the creation, and making of this mystery a celebration of the creation itself as the Creator is given the opportunity to participate in a relation [that] the creature has made available to that Creator. The making available of that magical moment goes by the simple name of love.
And so when you are able to love your neighbor, when you are able to love yourself, when you are able to love the entirety of the creation with all of the shortcomings that you may perceive in it, with all of the difficult people that you may know, with all of the flaws which you may be able easily to see within your own self, then you have the greatest gift to give the Creator that the Creator ever could want. The Creator then becomes known to the Creator, just as when you love someone, that someone becomes known to you in a deeper way than they ever could be if the carrier wave of that relationship was anything else but love. …
To some extent it is true that love follows upon free will as a possible activity of those who embody free will in relation to one another, and one could say, in a larger sense, in relation to the creation as whole. In this sense it would seem then that a proper consideration of the nature of loving would require a fuller consideration of what it means to have free will. That is a story in itself, my friends, but it is useful to note [that], were it not for free will, were it not for the possibility that in creating an infinite number of, shall we say, sparks, or holograms of the creator—each of which can experience itself differently—the creator itself would have no possibility of knowing itself in any way that it did not already have prior to the event of the creation. And so there is contained in the concept of free will a potential that, strangely enough, registers as a not being of the creator to the creator. That already suggests the need of a return to the creator, by the creator, so that the creator may reap the harvest of the creation that has been undertaken so that the creator may know itself.
The more difficult it is to find the love, the more positively polarized in every situation in which you are able to perceive it. It is well to begin your day, shall we say, in a conscious remembrance that this is your purpose: to seek love, to find love, to give love, to be love. If you can find a manner in which this is a reminder to you—be it a period of prayer, a period of meditation, a period of reading inspirational messages—whatever manner allows you to become aware that this is your purpose for the day, it is well to begin the day that lies before you in this manner.
This is a creation of love, and you are within this creation in such a way that love is called forth from you. It’s quite simple to pose the question of the purpose of the creation by suggesting that it is from love and to love that all originates and is directed. But, there is inevitably a question that will arise upon the minds of those who seek, and it is “Why should there need to be, in a creation of love, an effort made to love? Why should there need to be, in a creation of love, an experience of impediments to love? Why should there need to be—in a creation in which love is Alpha and Omega, source and destiny—an experience so bereft of love that love itself can at times seem to be the most impossible result, the most difficult task that one can be required to do?” And to ask this question is to focus on love as a particular kind of activity in which you can engage. You may engage indeed in many kinds of activities, and it is easy to list love upon a long list of things you might accomplish in the course of the day.
Free will to form love
There is another sense of love, however, which we would invite you to consider. We have suggested that, in the nature of the creation itself, love may be counted as one of the early distortions that permit differentiated experience, that permit individuated souls to find their way, to have experiences in a diverse creation and to bring back to the Creator the fruits of these experiences. This portion of the nature of the creation we have sometimes called the second distortion. Now, the first distortion in this creation we have called free will, so it may well seem that love is a dimension of the nature of the way things are that comes about as a result of a first innovation, shall we say, in the creation, involving the development of free will.
It is most helpful if you are conscious that what you do in this illusion is indeed the seeking to find love and to give love at all times. There is no other activity which has value in your spiritual journey other than this seeking and finding and giving of love. Those activities with which you busy yourself as a part of your profession, your hobbies, your activities, your leisure time—all of these are vehicles through which you move in a certain fashion to discover love, whether consciously as a conscious seeker of truth, or whether in a manner which may seem to be accidental as one which moves in a less conscious fashion through the daily rounds of activities.
All have the opportunity to seek and to find love. As we have said before, this creation is made of love. It only seems to be other than love, in order to provide you, shall we say, a challenge that allows you to increase your polarity of positive seeking to serve others by finding the love in those situations in which you find yourself engaged in your daily round of activities.
