The Nature of Reiki; Exploring our Subtle Energy and Relationship to “All that Is”
Lineage Bearer Phyllis Furumoto often speaks about the ‘absolute’ and ‘relative’ worlds that exist in our experience of life. I’d like to offer a few words about these concepts:
The relative world is that which we experience every day after waking, and before we fall into sleep. In this world, humans in every culture have created a way of relating to each other through the use of agreed-upon norms and values that allow us to get along in relative harmony. This world is the binary system of ‘if this then that’, where everything is ‘relative’ to something else.
The absolute world is that of non-ordinary or non-consensus reality. In this world there is nothing to judge or compare anything else to – experiences are ‘just so’. Every experience is full of its own potential – or potentials – to grow and mature into exactly what it is called to be by its own true nature. You might say that individual potentials navigate and follow their own ‘North Star’. And when one North Star is aligned or partnered or shared with another North Star… well, the possibilities are endless.
Your initiation in first or second degree Reiki may have awakened or reactivated a connection to this absolute world for you; as a Reiki practitioner, perhaps you have begun to feel that the absolute world has opened its doors a bit further to you, offering an invitation to come, visit, share and learn. Personal experiences of this nature might look like or include ‘knowing’ something before it happens; a heightened sensory awareness either through scent, sight, or touch; a new ability to differentiate between density or heat or vibrational frequency when treating another person; a more regular frequency of ‘coincidental’ happenings, and/or other possibly unusual experiences.
In these upcoming weekends together we will explore these two worlds, the places where we stand poised and balanced ‘on the bridge’ with a foot in each, and the places where we may not feel so balanced. We will engage, identify and experience subtle energy clues and invitations, respond to invitations with the honor of attention and the respect of one consciousness to another; we will share Reiki, laughter, stories, food and possibilities.
