For those of you that are not familiar with Reiki, here is a quick back story. Reiki dates back many centuries. Dr. Mikao Usui was a Tendai Buddhist that rediscovered Reiki in the late 1800’s. Everyone has a body that is energetic by nature. We all have a magnetic pulse. Reiki can addresses physical, mental and energetic imbalances. Contentment and relaxation are very common affects a person will experience after having a Reiki session. A Reiki practitioner will put his or her hand on or just above the recipient’s body at different points. The practitioner works as a channel and allows the Reiki energy to flow from their body to the recipient’s body. One Reiki treatment takes about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the issues being addressed.
The first time I received Reiki I felt so relaxed and content after the process. It was as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. The stress I had been carrying seemed to lighten. I then realized that Reiki was something that I wanted to learn and practice so that I could share that feeling of healing with the world around me. Although I believe that there are more than just “four ways” Reiki can change your life, here are just four of my TOP REASONS!
Rebalance your body energy. Our body has 7 main chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown).When these chakras are balanced you will feel more grounded, more independent, and fulfilled. I will go deeper into the subject of chakras in a different post.
Promote relaxation and peacefulness. After a Reiki session you will leave your practitioner feeling more relaxed and calm. You will have a sense of well being almost as if your troubles melted away. For me just saying the five Reiki principles alone gives me a sense of happiness and peace. “Just for today….I will not worry….I will not be angry….I will do my work honestly….I will give thanks for my many blessings….I will be kind to every living thing.” A full Reiki session is the best feeling and experience.
Help with body healing. Pain is often reduced and the healing process is accelerated. Reiki is completely safe to use since are no cautions or contradictions. It can be used for treating simple cuts or scrapes to treating a cancer patient.
Promote personal growth. As I mentioned, after receiving Reiki for the first time, I decided to expand my learning. I decided that I wanted to learn and practice Reiki for myself and others as well. My mind had been opened to learning new things.
Now, after a lot of dedication and hard work, I am now a certified Reiki Master and Teacher. I will soon start offering my services to the public, but for now I will continue the healing work on myself, my family and friends. Namaste, my friends.
