Working with Hg2

The Goddess Retreat from Morocco Retreats is now featured on the Hg2 blog: http://hg2blog.wordpress.com/2011/01/08/dear-goddess-news-hungry/ stating;

ZamZam Riad is one of the coolest places to stay in Marrakech, which is why it’s doubly thrilling that the boutique beauty is offering a detoxifying retreat between 2nd-6th February. Appropriately called ‘Goddess Retreat’, the jam-packed weekend is sure to ease both body and soul with classes in reiki, yoga, detox massage and hammam, as well as a strict diet that’ll kick even even the most stubborn bodies into shape. There are only three places left, though, so be sure to book yours ASAP. And with plenty of Moroccan sunshine thrown in for good measure, what’s not to love?

It is with great excitement that I am here writing about our up-coming Goddess Retreat in Marrakech at Riad Zamzam www.riadzamzam.com

After two powerful retreats in 2010, the team have come together to fine tune and increase the offering of our Retreats in 2011. 

We begin with the Goddess Retreat, creating a time and space  for women to come together and share the journey of their lives for three days.  In that time, the mind, body, emotions and energy will be stimulated and nurtured with Ashtanga Yoga, Reiki, Discussions and Talks about Chinese Medecine, Nutrition and Japanese Acupuncture from some of the most experienced people living the path themselves.  We take you into the medina to experience the depth of life happening there and then we take you to the desert to wonder at the silence that can exist.  To feel the duality of life whilst exploring your own internal world through the forms on offer and to be supported at every step. 

This retreat is a place of safety in which you can explore your own feminine power and what it is that may be getting in the way and stopping it flowing freely in your being.  Now is the time for women to move beyond their own personal awakenings and begin to come together with others to enhance this power, allowing it to radiate from their very beings.

REFLECTION

Becoming a Reiki Practitioner tends to bring us into contact with the mental, emotional and physical disharmony and sickness present in many people today.  What an amazing window it is into the beliefs and stories most of us are currently living by, as we hear the words of our clients after they have experienced Reiki.  Meeting people at this level of openness introduces us not only to other peoples’ issues but we begin to see in them over and over again, a reflection of our own inner state.

This is the Universal intelligence working through Reiki on a human and psychological level.  How many times have I found myself as a Reiki Practitioner being there for someone who is sharing after a treatment, finding myself able to tap into resources of wisdom for them only to realise later what perfect Truth that was for me at the time. 

So, it would seem that practicing Reiki introduces us to a world in which we are present on a regular basis when people begin to uncover their own Truth in front of us and in doing so they produce a perfect brilliant reflection of our own inner selves.  The reflections are very real in that Reiki only brings to you people with emotions or issues you are ready to be present with.  As you begin to clear yourself those who come are also beginning to clear more deep-rooted emotions.  The more you practice, the more you look into your own mirror and begin to see whatever it is that dulls your own inner light.  This is the ‘Way’ of Reiki, supporting us in the Journey home to our own Truth, a journey which as we know is not from A to B but is the lifting of the veils we have placed or have allowed to be placed upon us as we walked through life thus far. 

I have begun to include this very simple knowledge of the Reiki path in my training.  When Practitioners see themselves as ‘Healers’ this can produce a feeling of importance and ‘helping’ of others which so often strengthens the Ego-self and dilutes the experience of Universal Flow for all involved.  I offer the view that the act of practicing Reiki is an equal sharing of Universal wisdom and insight between Practitioner and Client serving both at all times.

The most obvious and deeply important aspect of how I am now practicing and teaching Reiki, relates to connection to the intuition.  One of the most profound and life-changing ways in which Reiki has pervaded my Being has been the slow but steady emergence of my ability to hear and act upon my intuition. 

My view of the Reiki attunement today is that as you send out the intent to be a channel for Reiki by asking for and being present at an attunement, you are asking to become aligned to the Universal Flow of Life.  The intense over-emphasis that our society has placed on the mind, the intellect and the idea of civilisation through the forms of the modern world, it’s thought structures and its beliefs has knocked us out of the Universal flow to a large extent.  We may observe an object or a place of beauty and have a glimmer of that connection to Flow or we may smell wood-smoke and feel unexpectedly serene for a moment, but today this is all that many people can hope to experience of their absolute connection to Nature, to their surroundings, to their planet and to each other.

The Reiki attunement, whether it comes from the potent energetic source of the symbols or from merely the mental desire to know the truth of connection once more, floods the Being with the ‘One-ness’ that is our true human state.  In most cases, the full experience of this cannot happen instantly as the shock to our fragile minds and bodies would be too great.  So, we have three attunements with a gap of at least 21 days between each one for the experience to settle.  In traditional Reiki, the practitioner was attuned regularly on meeting up with their Reiki Master as each time this happened the desire for Universal alignment created a deeper and deeper cleansing of all thought-forms and structures which stood in the way.  Each time you are attuned, an aspect of that which does not serve you is washed away. 

In my experience, this washing away clears the mind and creates more silence for you to hear once again the Universal knowing that beats at the very heart of the Reiki form.  Slowly, you begin to know how to act without having to think about it, moving the centre of personal action away from the mind towards the heart.  This increase in intuitive capacity is the core gift of Reiki, it leads us into an ever-deeper ability to heal which is reflected in every aspect of our lives, turning the art of Reiki healing into a Way of Life and the Journey home to your True Self.

I have therefore come to see a very important part of my role as Reiki Master Teacher as one which supports each practitioner in their path towards feeling and hearing their intuition.  I teach the Reiki hand positions although I have vastly simplified them and place a major emphasis on the practitioner’s ability to ‘feel’ the Reiki and be intuitively guided when giving a treatment.  By practicing the healing form in this way, I believe they are able to cultivate their own intuitive abilities and bring them into their own lives. 

Dr Usui had no hand positions and always taught Reiki as an intuitive practice.  I am drawn towards this form as I feel that the ‘healing’ form of Reiki is giving way to a much greater need in today’s evolving consciousness for Reiki as a ‘Way’ of living.  I think it may be time for Reiki to become a much wider practice and one way we can do this is to support the intuitive capabilities of all who come to Reiki.
