The other day I recorded our weekly podcast with my fellow ‘Psychic Wives.’ We had a guest on the recording and we were talking about Reiki (the transference of universal energy through one person to another person, animal, or object). One of the really important things that came up in our talk was the absolute need for permission before we practice any kind of energetic work with another being…human or animal. There are a lot of folks out there who think that psychics and mediums are going around openly reading them, or healers are going around pushing energy on everyone. And that idea is perpetuated by reality television shows. But the truth is, we aren’t. And we’re not supposed to be.
Yes, when you do the type of work that I do you are able to feel or ‘read’ the energy coming off of the beings around you. Sometimes that energy isn’t good and you immediately know that that being needs some help, or clearing, or guidance. And, as ‘fixers’ or ‘healers’, our first instinct is to reach out and do just that. But we can’t. Because it’s not ethical. I can only work with someone who asks me to work with them. I can’t tell you how many time I’m on the phone with a client and he or she asks me to connect with their spouse and help them understand something. Again, I can’t. Because I don’t have that person’s permission.
The same goes for animals. At the very beginning of every animal reading I do, I ask permission of that animal to read them. Sounds bizarre, I know, but it’s what we do. And it’s up to that animal whether they allow me to or not. Same thing with animal Reiki. If I want to give my own dogs Reiki, I have to offer it to him or her, not make them lie down and lay my hands on them. Again, it’s up to them.
When we were talking about this the other day we acknowledged just how hard it can be NOT to offer the help when we feel it is needed and what we can do instead. Our guest said that she will often direct her healing energy out to the Universe instead of to the person or animal, that way they can accept it if they want. One of my fellow ‘Wives’ shared something similar and said she asks herself to simply ‘Be Reiki.’ And I love these. Because we can’t directly interfere with someone else’s energy…even if we think they SO need it…we can just ‘put that energy out there’ or just BE that energy. So now, that energy is there for the taking.
But here’s the thing. You don’t have to be a Psychic, a Medium, or a Reiki Master to do that.
Just be the energy you want to share.
Live and Learn with love.
