Quite a few people have written to me asking how to use Reiki to bring abundance, prosperity and/or
financial success into their lives. This article is a somewhat shortened version of my blog entry on this
matter. Please click on the link below to read the longer version.
I’m going to present a few ideas for using Reiki to achieve abundance, prosperity and/or financial success.
But before I do that, I want to mention that this is one area where Reiki and Feng Shui go together very
nicely. Many books on Feng Shui specifically tell you how to set up your environment to encourage abundance and prosperity.
I do want to acknowledge something before I continue my discussion. To some people, speaking of Reiki and money or Reiki and financial success in the same breath makes them cringe. They view Reiki as pure Love, a spiritual calling, and to introduce the idea of money into the sacred realm of Reiki is abhorrent to them. If that is your viewpoint, I completely understand and respect your position. I have known healers in many fields who have felt the same way.
But I am a bit more of a pragmatist and a realist. I recognize that we need to make a living and we need to support our families. Even more importantly, I realize the negative effects poverty and monetary insecurity can have on us.
When a person feels financially uncertain, even endangered, that person may find it very hard to pay attention to the spiritual aspects of his/her life. If someone has so much financial worry, thoughts of “How will I pay the bills?” and “Will we lose the house?” may occupy so much of that person’s energy and time that they can scarcely think about things like helping others heal.
Does this mean that poor people and people with financial difficulties can’t be spiritual and can’t help others heal? Of course it doesn’t mean that. However, survival issues can become paramount, and for many, many people, these issues interfere with their ability to give any of their energy to spiritual and healing issues. We are all human, with a limited amount of energy and resources available to us at any given time.
But beyond this, I don’t believe there is anything inherently wrong in the desire for abundance, prosperity
and financial security. We live in a world that is run by money; that is the reality we live with, no matter
how much we might wish it were otherwise. Without sufficient money, we are in deep trouble! When we have sufficient money, we can turn our attention more easily to helping others.
Everyone has to define what the term “sufficient money” means to them. For example, I am not fond of the idea of using Reiki to win the lottery, or to win at gambling. Frankly, I don’t like the energy of gambling, because so many people’s lives are ruined by gambling.
Having said that, however, I leave it up …
