I practice Reiki on regular basis and on one occasion while I was doing the energy work a thought came to me. I was to use my breath to help clear the pain away. I told the person I was working on “When you feel my breath blowing over you, picture in your mind all of the hurt, the pain, the darkness associated with the afflicted area being carried away deep into Mother Earth where she can dissipate it.”
The pain was in the back. The next day, less than 8 hours later, all of the pain was gone. I have done this a number of times now and it helps the Reiki work at a much deeper level.
All of our pain can be healed from within with our own energy. We have to just let go of the negativity and darkness around the area and allow all of the beautiful energy from the Universe to be brought into our bodies to heal.
