I recently returned from a retreat in Glastonbury where I had deliberately asked spirit to arrange a change in the weather as the prediction wasn’t going to serve me and my group at all. The resulting sunshine created an interesting discussion around the breakfast table of the power of the Reiki symbols to support clear intention. One of the group told me I should blog about the experience I had in Hawaii with the Reiki power symbol that I opened my book Reiki and the Seven Chakras with. Further bellow is the extract from the book.
This reminded me of another experience I had of the power of Reiki symbols. Towards the end of my stay in Hawaii my friend Matthew and I were offered the opportunity to go on an incredible dive trip into a submerged crater off the coast of Maui. Our problem was we would need to extend our stay and as we were travelling on separate airlines we both made phone calls separately. Unfortunately there was terrible weather in California causing huge delays out of Hawaii and our airlines both said there was no chance and we should stick with the seats we both had.
We looked at each other and pondered what to do next. We decided to ask ourselves what internal resistance we had that prevented a flow of grace in this situation. Matthew and I both realised we had to let go of the sense of obligation to go home for someone else. We sent distant healing to the situation to release all resistance and then to the airlines. Forty five minutes after our initial telephone calls we both phoned the separate airlines again. Nothing had changed with regard the situation in California or the airport in Hawaii as far as I know, but you can imagine our smiles when both of us managed to reschedule our departures…
Here’s a story about the Reiki Power symbol
“As The Pilot of the Hawaiian Airlines flight throttled forward, the tired old DC9’s engines vibrated noisily in response like some badly loaded spin drier at full tilt. With a noise to performance ratio severely out of balance they began to slowly push us forward on our take off run from Maui airport to the Big Island. Sitting next to me Thomas was talking about the nature of giving and receiving. He was one of our group that had congregated in Maui for the winter solstice 1996. As we were all far from our families and homes, Alex a resident of Big Island whom we had met the week before had invited us over for Christmas. Thomas was explaining universal accounting.. “If we ask for a financial exchange for something we teach, we should not be attached to the idea that it has to come from the person we teach it to…It could come from somewhere else” he said “and not straight away, everything has to balance out….” I smiled thinking how I might persuade my bank manager the merits of this theory next time I asked for a loan….
The DC9 was now gathering speed… “Just a moment…” I said interrupting Thomas … “I need to do something”… I placed my hand in front of me and drew the Reiki power symbol in the air, the mantra passed silently through my mind, I visualised the symbol passing down the central isle of the aircraft toward the cockpit. Suddenly the DC9 lurched forward as the pilot urgently applied the brakes, the engines which a moment before had been propelling us towards lift off were hastily throttled back into silence. The aircraft slowed and then turned left off the runway. Out of the right hand side windows we could see the end of the runway only a hundred yards away and then the ocean. “What did you do”? asked Thomas looking astonished. “I just remembered what my Reiki master taught me about using one of the Reiki symbols to protect journeys” I said equally astonished. The Captain came on the intercom and in a customary tone gave us an explanation as if what had just happened was a commonplace occurrence ”Sorry ladies and gentlemen we need more take-off room for the weight we are carrying, We will taxi to the end of the runway and begin our take off run from there….” I felt the ‘tell tale tingling of truth’ run down my spine as the hair on my arms stood to attention. Sometimes you just know you have experienced a moment of intervention by spirit, a moment where the doorway opens and something reaches through and touches you. It is why we believe in Guardian angels, why in our hearts we know there is someone there watching out for us. It had happened before to me but never in response to something I had done. I knew in my heart the relationship between my action of drawing the symbol and the event of the aircraft stopping was connected. Of course it could never be proved and certainly argued away, but I knew. So did Thomas.”
