Healing Power of Usui Reiki to Heal the Planet

Healing Power of Usui Reiki to Heal the Planet

As you may have observed from previous posts, I love stories.  So, in that vein, I wanted to share a rather heartwarming anecdote for all you animal lovers out there.  The experience I’m about to share left me in awe of the healing power of Usui Reiki to heal the planet. It spiked my belief in miracles, and is the eye-opening premise behind my fascination with Reiki/Healing Touch and our own ability to heal through heart and hands.

The story took place 2 years ago. I had left my full-time teaching and educational administration career 4 years prior to seek clarity in my my intuitive gifts that tended to “flare” sporadically.  During that massive spiritual learning curve, I developed a quiet curiosity about the art of healing.  I decided to dip my toes into Reiki, acquiring a level 1 & 2 certification.  Afterward, I was astonished that I began to feel “heat” or “electricity” in my hands.  And I recall my then Master Teacher mentioning how she’d utilized Reiki healing to resuscitate an insect after almost drowning. Though I believed her, there was a skeptical part of me that questioned the probability, that logical part that discerns fact from fiction.  I decided I’d just let the Reiki go – learn a little about it and move on.


The summer of 2020 I went to visit my brother and his family in Montana, one of my favorite places in all the world.  We were hiking up the same hill behind his house in Bozeman, when we stumbled upon a tiny creature in the middle of the dirt path.  It was a chipmunk!  And he was bleeding, barely breathing, super vulnerable.  My heart sank.  I couldn’t leave the little guy lying there, potentially waiting to get stepped on.

I asked for guidance, felt a gentle nudge in my heart and a “nod” from above in my head.  Guidance was telling me, “Do it!”  I picked him up gingerly, and my brother raised an eyebrow questioning (umm… rabies?).

We walked along, and I began to feel my hands heat up.  That’s how Reiki starts its flow.  I then heard telepathically – all-the-while conversing with my brother – the voice of Jesus.  He said, “Send what you can to this creature.  You can bring it life energy. This is the beginning of your memories of your ability to heal, child.”  At that point, the chipmunk – we’ll call him “Chip” for fun – hadn’t moved, still barely breathing. I was thinking it’d be a miracle if he made it to the bottom of the hill.  I planned to put him in a shoe box and nurse him back to health if that was possible.

So, ok Jesus.  I sent the Usui Reiki symbol for “power” during the remainder of our hike.  I could feel the light expanding through my 3rd eye, and I opened my heart up to the little guy, calling in whoever was willing to send him some healing up there, specifically the Archangel Ariel who works with animals and nature.  The sun felt subtly brighter.

We had neared the bottom of the hill, and I remember I was commenting to my brother on how I probably needed to invest in Reiki Mastery training to enhance my foundational skills. Interesting timing because about a split second after I made the comment, Chip screeched (scared the crap out of me) and flew out of my hands.  He landed on the ground and start to run, but I scrambled to pick him up and put him someplace hidden from predators.  Needless to say, I was completely shocked.  My brother was speechless – he may have uttered a few expletives in his own attempt to make sense of what had just happened.  The above picture was taken by my brother minutes before “the revival.”

Ultimately, this encounter was an affirmation of the infinite possibilities we possess within, blatantly countering my own doubts that such healing was possible.  Oh, how we vastly underestimate our potential!

I share this story not to talk about me or my own ability to heal, but that such healing potential is within all of us.  The only obstacle we face is our own acceptance of that potential within us as individuals and Divine Creators of our reality.  So I ask: Why would Source send us down here powerless to begin with? That is a human-made construct.

And so, without further ado, I returned to the East Coast and amped up my own healing practice.  Today, I feel such a connection with each person, animal and plant I send healing to.  It is through that Source of infinite love that we, as Creators ourselves, also realize how precious and valuable each of us is.  Never forget this!

IN SUM: We all have the potential to heal ourselves and thus each other, friends – to heal this planet, its plants, atmosphere and animals.  To give all life the love it needs to thrive. We are all powerful in the most divine of senses. 

This inspiring story shifted my viewpoint on our potential to heal. Now I truly stand in awe of the healing Power of Usui Reiki to heal the planet.  I hope you enjoyed it. I know Chip did. Still sending him love and gratitude out there in the mountains of Montana.
