This is a question we received from an Email
and part of my answer. If you have anything that
may help for greater understanding, I'm sure your
post will be appreciated.
> "I was going through a hugely intense emotional
crisis last fall and had reiki treatment done. I released
alot of energy and emotions, and I have not been able
to feel anything since. is it possible that I released
one of my subtle bodies, astral body maybe or a part of
my soul? and if so is it retrievable? I don't feel or
dream or have any sort of desire or will anymore."
(Part of) my answer:
It seems to me you do "feel" as this email indicates that
you aren't comfortable with the post-Reiki "you". Also it
seems you still have "desire" as you indicate you want to
retrieve what once was you and/or your soul. Who you are
is the consciousness that can and does witness your emotional,
intellectual and physical changes. You are not and have never
been your feelings, mind, or body. Meditation is all about
positioning yourself as the witness to your life, and this
"Witness" never loses energy, as you recognize that this crisis
caused you to do. So, my suggestion to you is to meditate.
I wish you well.
