Hi, I’m Judith Conroy of Chikara-Reiki-Do and I’m answering your questions on Reiki.
I have a question pertaining to a statement about germs not causing illness
Do understand that you create or allow everything in your life and this includes the experience of illness.
And also remember, as a healer, you also need to create people who require your service too, otherwise you’ll have nobody to heal and no purpose either.
In the beginning we think something outside of ourselves creates our experiences…
…but then you come to realize that nothing happens outside of you at all and certainly nothing comes into your life, ever, without you allowing it in on some level.
For there are no accidents ever!
If you look for a causative factor outside, for example a germ, you will have to find one because the act of attention and intention, in your looking, will create one…
That which you focus on, is what you get.
You will draw it to you.
Interestingly two people believing a different outcome, will experience the outcome they believe in.
Believe in germs, and you will create a world of germs…
Your coughs and sneezes will spread diseases!
But I also used to be a nurse too, and call me old fashioned, going with your theory of germs and a grandma’s wisdom…
I concluded a pinch of dirt is a saying that has a lot going for it.
I firmly believe you can be too clean and over-protective.
The body works best, was designed to work best, when left to its own devices…
…with a little love and support from us.
And at the risk of showing my age – we should bring back fresh air, sunshine, and beds that wheel outside.
Happy, healthy bodies don’t catch anything, let alone germs.
That is why we use our Reiki self- treatments every day.
This promotes a feeling of calm, tranquillity.
A state of inner harmony.
Therefore, we are happy, relaxed, and permanently healthy.
But if we do go out of kilter, then we simply bring ourselves back to our center of peace within – using Reiki like a meditation to still us.
Then we can see what the real problem is and address it.
I can assure you it will not be a germ that is the cause either.
That is just the outer manifestation of something else that is bothering you.
Now, I know I shouldn’t have to say it…
…but I will anyway…
Please do remember to use your handkerchiefs when coughing or sneezing in public – as it is a much more pleasant thing to do in company.
Manners maketh man.
Thanks for listening.
