We had spent many family holidays together when we were children but as the older generation had moved on we had not seen each other for 20 or 30 years. The family tree was brought out along with photos of our ancestors and many discussions involved around old family stories and memories of the times we had spent together when we were young.
It is interesting how many different memories there are of the same holiday and how some people's memories fitted in or added to mine and with other's it was as if they were talking about a completely different holiday. It is strange when somebody talks about a holiday and remembers parts that others don't remember at all but I notice it happens often and shows how differently we each see the world. It is as if we each have our own spectacles that show the world differently to each of us.
If I was to tie this into sophrology it would be a level 3 exercise where we would go back in time to find our earliest memories of people we loved and who loved us. We would search out moments in the past where we were happy and enjoying life. Watering the happy moments and letting the memories of not so happy moments become weaker and less easy to remember. In this way we build up and reinforce our foundations making our springboard for the future stronger and building our self-confidence.
If I were to see the family gathering through the eyes of Reiki I would be looking at the energy vibrations, aware that each one of us has our own individual vibrational signature that plays into the family vibrational signature. The day was harmonious, fun, enjoyable and so the orchestral music of our family group was also upbeat, healthy and supportive. The co-ordinates of our personal energy signature are: Name, Date of birth, time of birth and place of birth. Nobody has ever had or ever will have the same co-ordinates as you. In some cultures names are not mentioned as they are too sacred to be said out loud.
Energy healing modalities like reiki work by retuning the body vibrations so that each cell is vibrating in harmony.
Writing this I am reliving the happy memories of the day and looking forward to our next reunion.
Wishing you a happy summer
