I became a Reiki Master in 2007 and have been practicing this amazing technique since. For me, Reiki is just a name given to a specific type of energy healing. I believe we are all gifted with the ability to heal, it is just a matter of focusing and learning a technique. Most of all is the belief. Energy work is not quantifiable. This is the way I view any type of energy work. When something happens physically to the body, it also has an effect on the energy field around our body. When something happens to us emotionally, it also has an effect on the energy field around the body. Energy healing goes all the way to the cells in the body, changing the frequency and vibration of each and every cell in our body, but it also works on healing the energetic field around our body.
A scientist named Semyon Kirlian accidentally discovered how to photograph that energy field around our bodies. It is actually a collection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. It is also known as electrography or corona discharge photography. Below is a picture of me taken with this type of photography. I promise I'm in there. Look toward the bottom and you can see my arm. Each aura is as unique as a fingerprint. No two are alike. I have a photo taken once a year, and they are all different as well. I always have the same basic colors of blue, pink, and white, but depending on what is going on in my life, they vary in intensity. When I'm feeling weak, you can barely see it, when I'm feeling strong, as I was in this one, the energy field completely surrounds my physical body. Right after my dad passed, the energy field was almost entirely white, which is associated with spirituality.
2003. I was not in a happy job and it shows.
2005. This was a month after my dad passed away. Lots of white.
2018. As my spirituality has grown so has my energy field.
A lot of people call this woo woo science, or worse. You don't have to believe in any of this, but everyone is always saying they want scientific proof and here it is. A picture speaks a thousand words.
I have begun integrating tuning forks into my energy practice, to offer vibrational and sound therapy. It is highly effective and simply adds to the scope of my energy practice.
Think of this...what happens to our physical body affects our energetic body and what happens to our energetic body affects our physical body. We are not separate pieces. We are not just a heart, or just a brain, or just a mass of muscles, or just a bag of bones. We are physical, mental, and energetic. This energy field is life. When we die, the energy field in and surrounding our body is no longer there.
