Reiki could be the gentle answer you need when your soul or body is calling out for healing. This hands-on form of healing that originated in Japan centuries ago balances the energy levels of your chakras to bring your mind, body, and soul into harmony. It can be beneficial for anyone, including babies, children, the elderly, and even your pets.
When you look closely at the three main areas Reiki can be used to treat all kinds of conditions, issues, and ailments, it becomes clear that Reiki could help you or anyone in your inner circle who you love. Let’s look deeper into why Reiki might be calling you lately.
Mental health is important, especially when we have busy, stressful lives and it is hard to relax, reflect and be calm. As your Reiki practitioner aligns your chakras, your mind releases anxiety and stress, even if you don’t realize you have it. This might be from issues you’ve been carrying around for years or simply from the hectic workweek. However, we thrive when we let go of problems, find a positive mindset, and create space for creativity and growth. Reiki gives you the gift of peace of mind and freedom to move towards a better life.
It’s hard to find a person who doesn’t have a permanent or reoccurring physical ailment. It might be poor circulation, tense shoulder muscles, headaches, or digestion issues. One amazing thing about Reiki is it knows where you need healing most. When the Reiki practitioner moves their hands from your crown chakra to your root chakra you will notice they spend more time on certain areas. While they feel heat or sensation radiating through their hands, you might also feel warmth, heat, tingling, or experience twitching or tummy rumblings as the energy shifts. It is also common to feel emotional and many people laugh or cry, while others fall into a deep sleep.
The soul is perhaps the most mysterious and ever-changing aspect of ourselves that can be moved by Reiki. On a soul level, Reiki can help with healing, energy, and spiritual growth. When was the last time you created some time and space for yourself to do some soul work? We make time for the gym, dentist, annual health checkups, and even therapy, but often the important area of nurturing our souls is thought of last.
Many people have regular reiki sessions to maintain their health, otherwise known as preventative therapy or a tune-up. Similar to how you might take your care for a tune-up, so it runs efficiently, you can take yourself for a tune-up to ensure you are in peak condition. When your energy isn’t flowing well, blockages can cause illness to manifest. It is much easier to prevent illness than it is to treat it.
Reiki As A Therapy
Some turn to Reiki when they are already suffering. For example, they might need comfort or use Reiki as a complementary treatment along with medical treatments. Or maybe they haven’t been able to find results through medicine or other kinds of alternative therapy. This is how well-known Reiki healer Cait Marino discovered Reiki and we love her inspiring story.
While Reiki isn’t a cure for serious diseases, it can help ease many of the symptoms of chronic and terminal illnesses.
Reiki practitioners like the gifted Kiki Matoba and Dana Childs offer healing from a distance and many of their clients testify to the effectiveness of remote healing, even when they are in a different country or continent. If this concept is new to you, it might take some time to accept the amazing possibility. But don’t jump online and book a virtual healing session from a random person. Make sure you find a Reiki practitioner with who you’ve had positive results with in-person or who is recommended by someone you trust.
If you are lucky enough to find a great Reiki healer offering remote energy healing, it could be a blessing if you need or prefer to stay home, sweet home.
