You cannot change the past or anyone else, but you can change vibrations from your past.
Today can change vibrations from the past and today you lay down stepping stones for your future.
The following I originally wrote for Ezinearticles.com
Today/Now you can change your view of your past; change your view and this changes the vibrations you attach to your past, which can effect what happens today.
Changing yourself requires a deprogramming or rewriting the old tapes playing in your thinking mind. What translated as deprogramming in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai is one of the gentlest and most effective ways of making those changes today/Now/in the present moment that touch vibrations from yesterday and tomorrow.
You might think deprogramming is for cults and wars, or you can think of it as commonly used in the everyday brainwashing that often causes depression and physical illnesses. You can actually be brainwashed quite easily, and without realizing it.
I will use person X as an example of every day brainwashing. As a young person X was told s/he never listened, always procrastinated, and always wanted ridiculous things. Schoolteachers added to the list of things X did wrong, and X added more by saying I am such a fool.
Then later from a spouse it was “X you never know what you are talking about, and you never do anything right”. From children it was, “I wish you were nice like the other kids’ parents”. X began thinking I never know what is good for anyone. Good things were said to X, but the entire negative combined over time formed a strong block preventing the positive things from being heard.
Did the story of X grab your attention? Often times blocks keep a person from enjoying the good things in life. Blocks can cause physical and mental symptoms that medical doctors say they can find no cause. The removal of those blocks is the change that happens with the deprogramming or rewriting of the old tapes. Deprogramming with Usui Reiki can create balance and surround with harmony, what is in balance and with harmony begins to heal.
Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai have numerous techniques that bring balance to the mind, body, and spirit and surround with harmony. The healing of Usui Reiki might appear mysterious, but what is in balance and surrounded by harmony heals naturally. When you are studying these Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho you can, if you want, change you.
Life takes on a new look when everything is in balance and surrounded with harmony. You cannot learn Reiki from a book or video, but in today’s world there are many qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihans (master instructors) with an energy and technique lineage back to Mikao Usui, the founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho.
Usui Reiki Ryoho, commonly shortened to Reiki, is the name Mikao Usui gave to the vibration of combined universal love and harmony he connected to in 1921. Can you think of any more powerful energies then love and harmony? Then go one step further and think of all the love and harmony that has been collecting and building in the universe since before the beginning of time.
Now imagine those two powerful energies (love and harmony) combined. Neither a Reiki Shihan nor Reiki practitioner diagnoses or promises a cure, but Usui Reiki goes to the core of the imbalances. From the center of each cell, it shines like a flashlight healing from the inside out.
Usui Reiki as with anything natural does not quickly mask symptoms or produce what we might think is a cure. Health and happiness is just like each of us in that it is unique to each person. Regardless, when Usui Reiki is allowed to flow over time balance happens. The negative that has taken years to cause imbalances in the mind, body, or spirit requires time to replace with positive.
If you are still wondering about a deprogramming session or a session that balances, from a qualified Usui Reiki Shihan it is a very relaxing experience. You are always in control regardless of the ultimate relaxation you experience, you never have to be exposed to alcohol or smoke, you do not have to eat or drink anything special before of after a session, and you are not lost floating in left field as with some medications/drugs. Usui Reiki does not replace professional licensed medical care, but it complements all other healing modalities as it balances and surrounds with harmony. What is in balance and with harmony heals.
In my college psychology 101 I read that humans do not have instincts, but have learned or imprinted behavior. While I believe we do have some instincts I also believe that often the imprinted behavior we acquire happens when we are looking the other way. Pulling your hand back from a flame or ducking as an object comes toward you are learned behaviors to help keep you safe.
Unfortunately, some reactions you blend into your everyday life might not be helpful to your well-being. If you have ever seen the five simple lines of the Gokai (five Reiki precepts or principles), it might make you think that Reiki is too simple to be good. If you are reading one of the manuals my Reiki Shihans or I have written you will find that each of those very short simple lines requires more then a paragraph to describe in depth. Mikao Usui’s spiritual practice is simple yet profound. Some of the simplest things in life are the most beautiful.
Reiki does not require any elaborate rituals or any material objects to give it strength. Reiki practitioners spend endless hours learning with his or her Shihan (teacher) and practicing. A Reiki Shihan has completed at least four levels or degrees in whatever style of Usui Reiki Ryoho she or he practices. Within each of the first three levels of Reiki, numerous hours are spent learning and practicing exercises and techniques; exercises and techniques that help to balance mind, body, and spirit thus bringing the complete person to a natural state of well-being.
