Reiki energy heals on al levels. When this healing is taking place, there are blockages removed, energy flowing that has not flowed smoothly for a period of time moves, and releases of emotional/mental blockages that have been held onto are shifted.
We are all unique expressions of Source and our healing will take on different symptoms to different levels of healing for each person. So what might be true for one's experience may not be the norm for someone else and some may not even experience healing symptoms and this is in no way an indication that something is being healed or not. Some are just more sensitive to the shifts in energy than others and it will depend greatly on what energy distortions are being healed. Do not compare your experiences to another. Your healing journey is as unique as you are!
"All cure starts from within out and from the head down and in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared." The healing crisis is nature's way. It is the body itself that has the make-up and the materials that produce the crisis. It requires energy to have a crisis; it takes activity of blood cells and power of the tissue structure. It takes a reserve to go through a healing crisis, and the body will not produce it unless it is able to go through with it.
We cannot put a new foundation in the body without first cleansing the body, a process which is not always comfortable. Cleanup reactions are adjustments by the body to kepp itself whole and functioning. If there is a pile-up of waste matter accumulating, the immune system may decide it's time to clean up. It then provokes, say, a cold, or some other mucous discharge to flush out the obstruction, calling in an army of bateria to help dispose of the stuff.
A great deal of toxins may be pulled out of the body tissues and put back into the circulation in order to be elimnated. During this process, some uncomfortable symptoms may occur, such as:pains and aches, such as headaches, low back pain, joint pain, etc.
The healing crisis may last from a few hours to a few days, only in rare cases will it last a few weeks. The healthier our general condition, the fewer symptoms there will be. The more the body has to clean up, the stronger/and or longer the discharge reactions will be. They will also be more pronounced if the change in diet is abrupt, less so if it is gradual. During the healing process, the body brings back old diseases in reverse order, especially if these diseases have been suppressed through medication. It is like watching a movie backwards. However, the eliminative processes bring back old troubles in such a way that it inspires one to live an entirely different life, so that we are finished with the old way of living.
The healing crisis differs from the dis-ease process, in that it is a blessing and not a curse to the body. Though the manifestations may be similar, a healing crisis is brought about through an accumulation of health in the body, and the active healing power carries the person through. A healing crisis comes right after the person is feeling his best, usually following a positive change in lifestyle, such as a better diet, a high-quality food supplement, a fast or detoxification, giving up smoking, alcohl or drugs, a new exercise program, such as yoga, or a new spiritual discipline such as meditation. There is a feeling of weel-being at the core during the healing crisis; meaning that deep down inside, it feels okay, while a sickness feels like something is wrong. Each healing crisis is followed by increased vitality and a greater feeling of well-being.
