    How to use Reiki when you are severely stressed?

    Post by jen2174 on Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:10 am

    Im attuned to level two and have been since 2006. I do self treatments only except on animals even though Id love to on others. Anyway, I cannot get it to work on issues that seem deadly to me.
    My life is pretty bad and i hold a lot inside. I have noone to talk to, so it builds up thats my one guess. I have weird heart palpitations and lately the past week, i feel like my body is vibrating, almost internal trembling. I suffer from digestive candida and go through bouts of bad constipation that scare me because it stresses my liver and my heart even more. Im only 37 and i feel 90 at times. I do reiki on the solar plexus and it always takes along time for it to work, even it does. If i was having a heart attack id worry Id die because it doesnt seem to stop my heart from slowing down even though i can tell its not working right and is serious. my body gets side effecs easily so i have to be careful not to overload myself.
    I work on my right breasts some and sometimes that helps, and i can also try the core, working on my gut for my constipation and i cando reiki all day and it barely gets me to go to the bathroom. I dont understand whats the point of having a healing system andnot have it work? i could be scared, stressed out, worried and my nervous system a wreck and i cant get it to work right, even if im half asleep which is hard for me anyway, my body seems scared to go to sleep.
    I am not tied to any religion. i believe in angels and guides and try to get their help but it only lasts so long and thats if i make contact. if youre tired, you dont feel like going through a bunch of work to fix something.
    What techniques am I missing?
    I usually try intuitive reiki but on myself its very hard.

    Also, could i have attuned to bad energy? when I had my level one attunement, i remember seeing some stern looking woman who looked like me that held my hand. i never have felt right about that. the attunment ingeneral made me feel good and energized and connected but i always wondered if it took right.
    sometimesi can do reiki and it seems to make my body worse instead of better.

    Hi Jen, firstly let me say, just for today, do not worry!

    Try to get the idea out of your head that you've been attuned wrongly, or to bad energy, that won't do you any favours at all!! tongue

    talk to any reiki practitioner and most would tell you that they always find it so much harder treating themselves than to treat others ( kinda like doctors always making the worse patients!)..we tend to get in our own way too much when we try and self-treat specific problems or areas...it's a little harder for us to become 'compassionately detached' from the process and just be, and let the Reiki do it's thang!

    If you'd care to try a little experiment via distance reiki I'd be willing to offer my services... I'm kinda busy over the next two weeks, but perhaps we can arrange something thats convenient time wise to both of us? I'll pm you Very Happy I suspect others may have already pmed you... I love you

    Hi Jen sounds like Reiki may not
    be a good Alternative choice for
    you. you say..........
    if youre tired, you dont feel like going through a bunch of work to fix something.

    it seems you may have answered
    all your queries in this statement.
    To heal one's self you have to
    invest in yourself, if your to tired
    to do so you limit your own ability
    to benefit from your own innate healing
    Having a healthy immune system will
    balance your innate Universal healing
    energies sunny bounce

    Hi Bridget, no disrespect to you...but most people who need healing don't have a healthy immune system. Maybe i'm reading you wrong, but you seem to be implying that one has to be healthy in order to heal oneself? thats kinda counterproductive to the whole concept isn't it?

    being healthy and having a strong healthy immune system has got nothing to do with the ability to 'tap into' the source of all healing........after receiving Reiki attunements, healthy or not healthy, strong bodied or weak bodied, all can tap into the 'source'...

    Great point! people who find themselves
    with a dis-ease or low tolerence level
    usually have a weak immune system.They
    do need support like you have offered
    Jen, to assist/help her tap into the
    universal energies around her. sunny

    Exactly, how ever it is my belief
    that healing involves the whole
    person that means taking care of
    the emotional, spiritual and physical
    they work together. Relying on just an
    energy healing system and not tapping
    into all 3 defeats the healing process
    that I hear Jen expressing. study flower

    yeah, I think i understand what you are saying...but don't you believe that this energy system...'Reiki' has the potential to tap into all levels of being and help bring balance to the whole system...?

    Mind, Body, Spirit.

    My impression of jen's dilema, is that its her 'mind' thats getting in the way, so rather than focusing on her physical symptoms...I feel jen needs to relax and allow the reiki to gently seep in at an emotional/psychological level. ( sorry Jen feel like I'm talking about you behind your back cos your not here ahah)

    our personal expectations can be counterproductive to the healing process.....

    Reiki does have the protential to
    tap into and move stuck emotional,
    physical,& spiritual energy. I find
    that many folks have embedded attitudes
    that get in the way. We see this in the
    way folks self talk, affraid
    In Richard Brodie's new science of the Meme
    he States.......
    Richard Brodie says

    Viruses of the mind have been with us throughout history, but are constantly evolving and changing. They are infectious pieces of our culture that spread rapidly throughout a population, altering people’s thoughts and lives in their wake. They include everything from relatively harmless mind viruses, such as miniskirts and slang phrases, to mind viruses that seriously derail people’s lives, such as the cycle of unwed mothers on welfare, the Crips and Bloods youth gangs and the Branch Davidian religious cult. When these pieces of culture are ones we like, there’s no problem. However, as the Michelangelo computer virus programs computers with instructions to destroy their data, viruses of the mind can program us to think and behave in ways that are destructive to our lives.

    people have to learn how to relax and a skilled Reiki practitioner
    can help a client come to a place of relaxation where healing can happen
    Often some folks feel it should happen right away and are not willing to invest time in that process sunny

    I appreciate the replies. let me answer them in one post. The person who defended me was right, i am so tired of being tired and cant do things properly. i cant help it. ive done everything i can to let reiki in so to speak. ive tried to get out of its way to work and it still has problems. unless you are experiencing it like i am it might be hard to understand.
    As for the person who said I need all these other things to heal me..i dont have the money. i have zero money to my name, I have no car, i have no life and feel like im in prison with my parents. i cant get the food i want to eat. i cant eat healthy the way i want, and i cat buy the pills i want to buy to cure me..vitamins and such, so thats why i turned to reiki, because there is nothing else. its pathetic and makes me want to scream but what can I do? i reach out to my own community in hopes they can understand somehow..

    hmmm, have you been back to your Reiki master and discussed these issues with them?

    you said you 'turned' to reiki as a last resort as you couldn't afford vitamins etc....but didn't your reiki attunements and training cost money?

    I've replied via pm, but I would definately suggest you get back in touch with your reiki master and address these issues with them. Smile

    jen, I had a friend who had similar issues
    like the ones you have mentioned here. He
    was able to re-evaluate the patterns in his
    life that left him feeling like a prisioner.
    He changed the way he approached life and let
    himself be guided by Reiki. He started to change
    his eating habits learned to meditate. After a
    while his life began to transform to balance and
    harmony. He no longer holds onto things that don't
    work for him.

    I love you to Bridget
    ~~~

    Jen I'm dismayed by your response..'I get the impression once people attune you and you move on they just don't care' Please be assured that this is NOT the behaviour of most Reiki teachers. Most Reiki teachers appreciate the huge undertaking and responsibility that they have towards their students and most decent teachers would not only make themselves easily accessible to you for your future enquiries and teachings, but also make a point of contacting you to see how you are progressing on your Reiki journey...

    there are some amazing Reiki teachers on this board, all of whom understand and appreciate the responsibility they have towards their students..... I can't speculate and say you have had an unfortunate experience via your teaching and ongoing support regarding your teacher..because ongoing support does require a two way effort......and I have no idea as to how much effort to keep in contact with your teacher you may have made...

    But all I can say is I feel dismayed that you feel so abandoned.....but you 'feeling' abandoned does not necessarily reflect the reality of your teachers availabilty for support...... what ever the absolute 'reality' of this current situation is.... all I can say is that all decent Reiki teachers offer ongoing support no matter how many physical miles may come between teacher and student.... physical miles do not exist in the world of Spirit..... I love you

    Hi,

    i know it can be difficult to create change when one feels their enviroment is stacked up against them...Sometimes environments can prevent healing, and it becomes quite a frustrating situation when we feel trapped, unable to create a positive space for ourselves. It becomes compounded when those close to us do not understand what we are trying to accomplish.

    If you feel this way, try as best you can to be patient, little opportunities may arise to your advantage if you watch with diligence. Be patient with yourself...as self love is a hugh contributor to healing...

    I would like to say more in support of your present challenge, but i have to go...

    I have felt as you do in the past...things change for everyone, and they will change for you as well... Smile

    Jim I remember near the end of
    my healing journey having a
    conversation with myself about
    the environmental issue. I could
    not afford to move out of the city
    to a "cleaner" environment nor was
    I willing to uproot. I decided to
    do the best that I could to maintain
    a healthy immune system. I know that
    what works for me may not work for
    others as we are all on life's path
    with different issues to deal with.
    Our physical/emotional/spiritual levels
    vibrate within us. When we are ready
    to make changes then our personal world
    benefits sunny

    Reaching out as you have done jen has taken a lot of courage, needing for someone to understand the difficulties you are faced with. I cannot say I can fully appreciate your situation, but I do know reiki cannot be forced to work, it does work of course but in my experience on a subtle level, perhaps if one cares to consider has reiki not given you this opportunity to reach out? would you take this strength/step otherwise?
    What do you do with your time? are you constantly at home with your parents? Do you not have somewhere to be by yourself? A park perhaps, where you can safely relax and allow reiki to just be with you? As you would understand, reiki is all around us, and within us, The first point of change is within our selves, our frame of mind, our thoughts..Would a positive vision board help at all?, I know you have a lot of physical ailments but a positive mind helps to relieve uncomfortable sensations, a relaxed mind allows the body to relax, a tense body often increases constipation (or for some contributes to the opposite), and often times, when we have allowed our mind to relax we can see possiblities we missed...are there community centres near you where perhaps you could trade your skills for someone elses? A food co-op?, a community garden that produces fresh fruits and vegetables in return for a little hard work? Could you volunteer or do some form of work for food as payment? for example, I clean for an elderly lady who pays me in a big plate of pasta...!!! I'm not focusing on your physical problems, I realize that, but that's only because I do believe a positive mind can do so much, allow reiki to work, it will be of benefit, even if at the moment it doesn't seem so, and no, reiki isn't negative, you can't be attuned in a negative way, please be kind to yourself, allow reki to do what it does best..best of luck ps

    Hi Jen, only a short respone here, i think.

    It's the teachers responsibility to always support. but my words are just crap on here. THAT means nothing.

    what does mean something is that everything you need to acheive what you need is already inside you.

    Read it again.

    That's right. you already have everything you need. How come it's not working? Cause you're not using everything you have!

    You got Reiki. which one of many foundations to be had. Forget about techniques. I'd even say don't worry over vitamins, etc. If you feel there is an issue you need them, then there will be an issue that will require you to have them. You cant get the vitamins? Then fuck them. Is that to un-Reiki like i wonder. Haha! Let it go. No vitamins. No teacher contact. Etc.. all these things are an issue, only have power - when you make them an issue.

    We all go through many issues. Some more than others. A first stage is realising in our own drama we begin to chase our own tail. In the hope this will work better than that. Its like getting a new car to sort to fix our life. Bullshit. And i'm an expert on it. Haha!

    You're starring in your own drama. But you got a rival in me for the oscar, Smile.

    At the most superficial level Reiki will give a relaxation response. If i am highly stressed i may feel nothing. This is cause i'm highly stressed. If i really wanted to deal with my stress today i'd set aside 3 or 4 hours for Reiki. Of course, i'm just too busy with my admin duties here to do such a thing. We're all like this to some extent.

    Do you do Reiki for long periods of time? Can i ask what way you were trained - in-person or distance? What way do you self-treat? If you use hand placements, where? Can i ask wereabouts you do Reiki? Is it noisy? Do you have distractions, etc? Do you focus on what you are doing, or does the mind wander? Are you trying to hard? All these questions are important.

    You mentioned QT in another topic. you are trained in it?

    Please always feel welcome in sharing things with us here. I speak for the staff (cause i know them far better than over 600 individual members, hehe) when i say contact any of us in private if need be. Reikijim & pachamamma also. Every member (that posts anyhow) is here to mutally assist one another. We all get strength from our little community.

    warmest wishes
    WAyne
