A young lady named Kwang attended a Naturopathy retreat in central Thailand several years ago. She reported having constipation for many years. Despite numerous attempts to solve the situation, her symptoms never improved. As she received Reiki, the intuition of the healer recognized that she was suffering from some blockage related to relationships with her parents.
As she discussed her childhood, she cried several very old tears. Later, in response to her healing experience, she related that, “I can’t remember when I first started to believe that people do indeed forgive. I believe it, but that doesn’t mean that I can actually do it. Almost my entire life I’ve had to endure anguish and resentment caused by my parents. I hadn’t realized that all this negativity inside was connected to my physical well-being. As long as forgiveness challenged me, I continued to have constipation and was addicted to laxatives. The crucial transformation came when I learned Naturopathy and also received Reiki therapeutic treatment.”
She went on to explain that, “while the healer began his Reiki treatment, I told him about my problem with constipation. Surprisingly, he queried me about my life and problems with my mom. It seemed to me that we just had a good conversation in a relaxing atmosphere; he talked with me and asked a few questions, which led me to recall those relentless problems. In this session, he was sending his energy to my stomach covering the digestive system. He also sent the Reiki energy through his palms to cover my whole body from head to toes. That day, he helped me realize that the problems I had with my mom directly related to constipation: both were awful and ceaseless, and of course, I needed to let go of them.”
Five days afterwards, she returned to a normal life in Bangkok. She told her friends with joy, “Something miraculous happened during the course: I no longer have constipation! My bowel movements are back to normal. I am no longer under the spell of laxatives. You have no idea how wonderful this is! This small miracle, I believe, came from a combination of adjusting my eating habits, Reiki, Chakra energy and an attempt to ease the anguish between my mom and me. Oh… the most important thing is about faith and conviction. I have faith in unseen energy. Had I laughed at the Reiki healer when I saw him moving his hands I would surely remain addicted to those laxatives. At present, although I barely eat fresh fruit or get exercise, my bowel movements are normal and perhaps excellent. The anguish between my mother and me has not been easily resolved, though. Every day I still must try to come to terms with it hoping that one day it will be unraveled.”
Five years have passed since that healing and the constipation has never returned. The physical blockage was completely released by addressing the family issue that troubled her so deeply within her self. All of her friends and family are very pleased to see Kwang happy and healthy.
Dr. John Upledger characterizes the secret of all effective healing methods as the process of leading a patient to an honest and truthful self-discovery. Self discovery is required for the initiation and continuation of self-healing. He explains that only through self-healing, in contrast to “curing,” patients can experience both permanent recovery and spiritual growth. He goes on to say that, “the closer our perception of self approaches the truth, the deeper our capacity for self healing becomes.” His notion of healing is very relevant to the practice of Reiki, not only in terms of self healing that we emphasize in Reiki 1, but also in recognizing our responsibility and role in facilitating the true growth of our patients.
Keep in mind, when you are healing another person, in fact, you are facilitating their own self healing. The aim is to support them to accept their duty and responsibility for their own growth. Once you help them back on their feet, they can take steps on their own.
