Embrace Your Inner Light.
The essence of practicing any Energy Medicine is to rediscover our inner light. "A real teacher doesn't give you light; she will show you that the light has always been inside you," Frans Stiene. In the system of Reiki, a master symbol Dai Komyo is translated as Great Bright Light. We are focused on cultivating and advancing our connection with this Great Bright Light. The foundation of every modality is reconnecting and strengthening our inner light.
Everything in the Universe contains light/energy. This is what makes us a part of Universal Consciousness; it gives us an understanding of non-duality and provides our bodies with inner wisdom to heal and restore. Our inner light is an intimate connection to the Spirit, to the Source, and is always present, like heartbeat or breathing. A Nobel Prize-winner, Erwin Schrodinger, realized that individual consciousness is one with universal consciousness. He compared it to a drop of water in the ocean. A drop in the ocean is a reflection of the whole ocean.
Everything in the Universe carries this light, creating and receiving it. It is not questionable anymore that the human body emits light. Science proved it again and again. "The human body literally glows, emitting a visible light … research has shown that the body emits visible light, 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes are sensitive. (This visible light differs from the infrared radiation — an invisible form of light — that comes from body’s heat.)." Charles Q. Choi. Our light carries energy and information. We sense another person's feelings without words; we feel when something is wrong with a loved one even when they are far away.
Our conditioning, limiting beliefs, addictions, and attachments create a barrier between us and this light. When we remove these barriers, we become limitless. When we realize our Oneness with the Universe, everything falls in place. It rearranges our needs and desires, our priorities. We see the Reiki precepts in the new light, discovering their Universal Wisdom. Native Americans say, "We all come from light, and to the light, we will return. It is the circle of life." We are Bioluminescent Humans. We are part of this Pure Bright Light.
The word "spiritual enlightenment" means connecting with our inner light and through it to the Universe. I never said about developing our light - it is always there. I am encouraging you to rediscover and connect with your light. This connection transfers ordinary people to medicine men or women, giving extraordinary intuition and abilities.
Through the light, vibrations, and frequencies Universe communicates with us and we communicate with the world around us. It is how we can understand another person’s feelings and emotions without words. For centuries, healers could feel/see this light (energy) in their patients. Now technology does the same. Our bodies emit estimated total photon rates between 170 and 600 photons per cm2. "Since this faint light is linked with the body's metabolism, this finding suggests cameras that can spot the weak emissions could help spot medical conditions," said researcher Hitoshi Okamura, a circadian biologist at Kyoto University in Japan.
Research in ancient medical science like TCM and others awakened a deep curiosity about different possible modes of energy transmission and communication within the body beyond the already known circulatory systems. "For if these other models are true, holism will come to have an even more expanded meaning, and holistic medicine will be compelled to include the many subtle consciousness and energy fields that interpenetrate and commingle to form the totality that we call the human being." (The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Volume 10, Number 1, 2004, pp. 27–39)
We need to welcome our Bright Light, our connection to the Universal wisdom. It is time to embrace our bioluminescent presence, our uniqueness, and our gift. We are bioluminescent species with unbelievable abilities and potential. Make the light brighter and share this light with the world.
