The Healing Curve
There must always be a line to connect ‘Point A’ to ‘Point B’, otherwise they will never be connected. Likewise, there always needs to be a pathway which connects illness to health. It may be of allopathy, homeopathy, Ayurveda, or energy healing – no matter which we choose, the pathway will form. Sometimes the path may be a straight line and other times it may be as twisted as a rollercoaster, but that is okay.
The healing curve of people will always vary and that’s how it is meant to be.
In allopathy, the pathway, in general, is tried and tested to a point where the drugs can replicate certain reactions in the body that build up over time to treat the disease. In energy healing, like Reiki, we cannot always know the path that leads to healing. The path is rather unknown and the destination is not always visible. This is not because it isn’t tried and tested, but instead because each person’s journey is different. Reiki is beautiful intelligent energy and it automatically customizes itself to the needs of the client. The client may want to be healed as soon as possible, but the HigherSelf understands that the conscious self needs more time to reflect on the situation – Reiki will bridge the gap in these cases. For some, Reiki works in an instant and for some, it takes a long path.
Whatever the paths, it always ensures that one gets what one deserves. Not more, not less. Just enough. This is often the reason why people get frustrated with the results! Time and again, I see clients who feel this beautiful energy in their sessions and believe that it’s so magical and all you have to do is ask Reiki like one would ask of a Genie. But Reiki is not ‘a wish-granting factory’ if I were to use John Green’s words from TFIOS. Reiki is a spiritual tool, the healing is a by-product – if your body and mind are healthy, it is easier to attain enlightenment because you don’t have to put in extra effort to care for the diseases. When Reiki, or any energy healing tool, is viewed as a mean of ONLY curing diseases, it becomes difficult to understand the learnings. When used correctly, Reiki will shifts perspectives, heals karma, create empathy and gratitude towards the illness and eventually provides healing. It works on several layers and yet we expect quick results. Sure, the allopathy provides quick results but in turn, also provides the patient with side-effects. This doesn’t mean that allopathy is worse than Reiki, it means both need to work together. Allopathy can treat a disease, whereas Reiki heals it in the background.
Sometimes when I get worried about the progress of my clients, I have to remind myself that no matter what, the results will always show – sooner or later. Incredible progress or small baby steps. It does happen, eventually– when the time is right for them. It’s not uncommon for a client’s health to deteriorate despite being given Reiki and allopathy and showing progress earlier, sometimes the deterioration will just be a release of toxins. The healing curve of people will always vary and that’s how it is meant to be.
