das, excuse me asking, - and this is a genuine question, fired by curiosity. I'm not trying to be confrontational here...

How on earth can you place yourself in such a vulnerable position of being open to the discord, imbalance and harmony in others, [this portion of message removed by moderator for violating TOC]

I don't know about guided meditations with Reiki, but many years ago another practitioner and myself did some exchanges. I find Reiki treatments very soothing.

Alexandra, to answer your question, I dont open my self up to all energies. I make sure that I am firmly grounded and centered before I do Reiki on anyone!!! I like the Spirit of God flow through me and into the other person. I dont use my energy because it is to draining and limited!!! If energy is removed form someone then being grounded and centered makes the energy flow through me and out back to God!! so I am more like a shethoscope in a Dr. hands!!! just a Tool for the Lord!!! lol I hope that explanes!!

Susan,
We used to do something with a whiteball in reiki.
Take the white ball from root to top with reiki.
Is guided meditation something like that?

So am I!

I think perhaps Alexandra is suggesting that if we have troubles ourselves, we are not capable of helping others.

This is incorrect.

During the years that I was dealing with some of my most painful problems, I also did a great deal of healing work, using guided meditations to prepare, and relax those who came to me, before beginning the healing work. In fact, the guided meditations were an important part of the healing itself.

A healer is usually able to set aside their own personal problems when healing someone. It is a matter of sealing your aura before beginning, and cleansing your aura after the healing, as well as grounding.

If your own problems affect your ability to heal, then you aren't doing it correctly. You are failing to separate yourself from your patient emotionally and psychicly.

At least, that was my experience. The fact remains;- people were healed.

Patience.

Thanks patience.
I do exactly as you say.
And I feel better if I can help others.
I feel more self esteem.

From what I understand from what I've read and what my Reiki teacher taught me. You're not using your own energy, you're using God's( the Divine Source, Your higher power or whatever you choose to call it.) univeral energy. So there can be no harm done with Reiki. There is no exchange of personal energy and both the Reiki healer and the person receiving the energy healing are healed.

Alexandra,

If you ever doubt that your message can disturb me, please do not send. I am not in mental state to read anything disturbing.
Thanks.
