The Healing Benefits of Reiki
Updated: Mar 1
Reiki is such a beautiful healing modality. It's natural, gentle, powerful, and pure, and it offers so many wonderful benefits.
I've been working with Reiki for 11 years, and I am always amazed at the ability of this Energy to guide me, and to provide such a sense of peace and Well-Being to myself and to my clients.
What exactly is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for healing the mind, body, and strengthening one's connection to Spirit.
Reiki is offered by placing the hands on one's own body, or on another being (the hands don't have to be touching the other completely, they can also be gently hovering). By simply having an intention to open up to Reiki, the Energy will flow.
'REI’ is known as the Divine Intelligence that guides creation in all its forms, and maintains the functioning of the entire Universe. Rei is a powerful, yet subtle energy; you can’t see it, but you can feel it.
‘KI’ refers to the life force energy that flows through all that lives.
It is the Higher Self called Rei that guides Ki in the technique for Reiki.
Reiki can therefore be called spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki is a pure, loving energy that is always working for the highest good of all. It is a holistic system of healing that anyone can benefit from.
The healing benefits of Reiki are immense. Working with Reiki on a regular basis is always ideal, as you have the advantage of a more consistent flow of this Energy into your being. However, even one session can bring you back to your centre and support you in moving forward with more ease on your path.
Here are some of the wonderful benefits of Reiki:
• Supports your body's natural ability to heal
• Raises your vibrational frequency • Soothes the emotions • Balances the energy centers in the body • Helps relieve pain and tension • Clears the mind and helps you focus in daily life with more ease • Induces deep relaxation • Helps relieve stress • Provides a sense of grounding • Helps you tune into your spiritual guidance and intuitive abilities • Supports deeper sleep • Helps you cultivate a sense of trust in yourself and in the Universe
• Supports spiritual growth • Promotes peace and harmony with yourself and others
• A wonderful support for natural conception, a healthy and happy pregnancy, and an easy birth
• Enhances the immune system • Can help resolve chronic symptoms or illness
• Helps you feel more connected to your Source and your angels
• Allows you to reconnect with loved ones who have made their transition into the Non-Physical realm
• Helps align your energy with your desires
One of the lovely advantages of Reiki is that it can be done via distance. No matter where you or your practitioner are located, you can have a beautiful Reiki session in the comfort of your own home, and it will feel as though your Reiki practitioner is in the same room with you.
Some people feel gentle sensations in their body as the Reiki flows. Coolness, heat, tingles, feelings of ease, pleasure, and comfort, are all indications that you are receiving this loving energy during a session. Often times, you may even feel like drifting off into a nap, which I always encourage with my clients. Some don't feel too much while the Energy is flowing, but do feel a sense of refreshment and renewal when the session is complete.
Every Reiki session is different and everyone receives Reiki differently. Do be aware that while your experience with Reiki may differ from another's, or even from a session you've had before, what you are ready to receive from Reiki will always be perfect for your journey now.
I always liken Reiki to a loving, gentle friend who is constantly there for you, ready to assist whenever you ask.
All you have to do is be open to the Energy of Love, which is what Reiki truly is. ❤
