Can I send Reiki healing into the past?

Q: Can I send Reiki healing into the past?

A: Yes. Sending Reiki to heal an issue or trauma from the past can help heal the effects of that event in your present. It doesn’t change what happened, but it makes getting over it easier. Think of it as loosening the ties to the damage that event caused, creating space for healing in its place. It may take a few sessions if the event was severe, but it will help each time.

Reiki energy is not bound by the laws of space or time. So by intention, we can send healing to another place, time, or person anywhere in the world. That means that the limitations are ours to set by our intention. Healing is possible on so many levels, and we can feel confident that we are powerfully enabled to direct healing energy where it’s needed.

    I am just being nit-picky here, “Reiki energy is not bound by the laws of space or time.” Well, Reiki *is bound by the laws of “space” and “time,” but the terms; space, and time, are linguistic artifacts that survive even after an understanding of reality is approached. But you are otherwise spot-on correct.


    • I think it’s not that Reiki is bound by the laws of space and time, as much as space and time are a figment of the way we, in our earthly bodies, organize where and when we are. Reiki is energy, so it is part of the ONE – the ALL THAT IS – and therefore exists in all space and time at once. Does this jibe with what you’re saying? What a great discussion! Thank you for your input, Robert!

        Yes, Alice, that works.

        Recognizing Time-space *just as a culturally referential continuum, or as a “mapping” of a greater *IS*ness can be a valuable tool in spiritual practice.

        In whichever way the metaphor is interpreted by our wet-ware is going to work to some degree … Not easy to find language that is going to explain this other than provisionally.

        Even just Expressing the *ability, or the *possibility of using energy in this way will open many paths for Talents to find way of getting to happen.


  2. Reiki will also work on the physical issues left over from the past. For example, a recurring shoulder problem could be directly caused by carrying a large school bag over that shoulder, or a hump back caused by sitting hunched over the desk for long periods of time.
    Often I find that, when people say “Reiki’s not working, I can’t feel it physically” that it’s actually working through the psychic and mental stuff before it gets to the physical stuff. It’s like watering a garden: the low points will fill with water first and then the water will spread around as it overflows and become more noticeable, having more of a widespread effect.

  3. This is a lot like the shamanic concept of soul retrieval. You were not emotionally complete with some event in the past so you ‘go back’ to retrieve and heal that part of yourself. Making yourself ‘whole.’

    In ‘this’ life methods like EFT, TAT, and the Sedona Method work in the same way. Letting go of emotions, thought, feelings.

    I see it as running or holding onto energy from another time, so whether you ‘go back’ to retrieve it or let go of it and let it go back to it’s own time… doesn’t matter. Linear time is an illusion anyway.

    Using Reiki you can heal the ‘old’ issue without fussing with what happened or what the emotion might be.

  4. Great question and I’m really glad you brought it up! While I am aware it’s possible to send Reiki to oneself into the future, it never occurred to me to direct it towards the past! This is definitely something that I will add to my repertoire from now on!
