I have continued the never ending quest of discovering how healing energy works, and why. My experience has cost me thousands of dollars over 15 years. I received me level 1 Reiki training in 1999, and it took off from there. I share some of the same thoughts many have expressed; there must be more. Here is what I discovered in my intensive and costly education. I share these “pearls of wisdom” with everyone in the hopes of saving you money and time. Yes, there is more. Please realize too that this is my opinion I am sharing, based on my experience.
At the end of all the energy classes that it is humanly possible for one to take, I still came to the same conclusion: there must be more. It was only then that I turned my attention back to an old and familiar journey of faith. All energy healing connects to the Source of the healing energy, God, the Creator of energy and everything else. This helped me answer many questions like, why can’t we raise people from the dead? Why can’t we instantly heal major illness like in the day of Jesus? Was Jesus just a prophet like energy circles like to reduce him to, or was he actually the Son of God?
I do believe in connecting with Source, as long as what we are calling “Source” is specifically God, the Creator of everything. Why do I specify who this God is? My studies took me to a place I did not expect. No one has more healing stories to tell than Jesus, so I went back to the Bible to investigate how healing works, since I had exhausted all other earthly courses and programs on this subject. I knew there had to be more.
If a healing style suggests we connect with “Source,” without specifying that this “Source,” is God, then I back away, because there are other energies out there who mimmick white light. Lucifer’s name means bright, white light. Satan was one of the most beautiful angels God ever created, and through his own and our pride, uses every situation possible to pull us away from the author of all healing, God. I think playing on our egos and the art of energy healing is one way that happens. Otherwise, why don’t all people truly get healed in our sessions, and why don’t they stay healed?
Our human egos often get in the way here, at least mine did. When I realized I got to the end of all healing modalities, and still I had unanswered questions, I went back to Jesus’ healings in the Bible. I found out that, yes, Jesus did heal people, but that was a secondary action. Healing came after, not before his primary mission of aligning people back to God and announcing the coming of the Kingdom of God. Jesus showed compassion and pitied the people, because they seemed to be like sheep without a shepherd. I think this is much like us today, following anyone who is teaching all the healing modalities, leading us astray from the real healing of the soul, mind and body.
I have yet to meet a person who has never died, and after all this time of all these expensive courses, I have yet to meet a person who can bring a person back from death, or who can heal simply by having the hemmoraging person touch the hem of our garments, all the while we feel that healing energy departs from us at that exact point.
Healing by Jesus was a side effect of learning about and accepting his teaching about the coming Kingdom of God. Please stay with me here. In the stories of creation, Jesus was created by God first, before anything else. All else was created by God and Jesus working together, which is why Genesis says, “we created everything in OUR image.” Jesus is a perfect creation of the Father. When man was first created, Adam was created perfect, but with free will. Adam sins by using free will to give into temptation and fall into sin by following Satan over God. It took God’s only other perfect creation, Jesus, to align us back to the Father, and bring healing back.
“Then he (Jesus) went around through the whole of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the kingdom and curing every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity among the people.” Matthew 4:23
However, the healings came to an end in Jesus and the apostles time, at least dramatic healings such as rising from the dead and curing major illnesses. Check this out:
“Love never fails. But whether these are gifts of prophesying, they will be done away with; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will be done away with. For we have partial knowledge and we prophesy partially; but when that which is complete arrives, that which is partial will be done away with. … Now however there remain faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13: 8-10, 13
So here I come full circle, yet with profound understanding, that this healing work we do is partial, not complete. I now believe that all healing will become complete in God’s Kingdom to come, as Jesus taught us in what we now know as the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy Kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.”
“Keep on seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
When I started out on my quest for healing, I honestly did not think it would bring me to this conclusion. My pride and ego wanted more. But this is what I came to. God bless you on your continues search.
