If you have been hearing more and more about Reiki energy healing recently, you're not alone. This concept has spread to all parts of the world and tens of millions of people have made it a part of their lives. This is not surprising given how stressful and anxiety-inducing our lives have become nowadays.
There is a pressing need for something that can help people destress and live healthy and peaceful lives. That is exactly where Reiki comes in. Since it is so significant in today's world, I am going to talk about what it is, how it works, and how it can help you, in this article.
What Is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique. Nobody knows where and when it originated from, but it is thought to have emerged more than two thousand years ago. Then, in the late 19th century, it was rediscovered in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. Since then, the knowledge of Reiki has spread throughout the world and countless people have benefitted from it.
But what exactly is Reiki?
Well, to understand that, you will first need to examine the word itself. Reiki is made up of two smaller words; "Rei," which means a higher power, and "ki," which means life force energy. In spirituality, it is believed that the entire reality is made up of only one energy. And everything we see, including planets, sun, moon, humans, animals, plants, etc. are all different manifestations of the same energy.
So, a Reiki healer essentially uses the fundamental life force energy (that exists everywhere) to heal other people. Let's take a look at what happens during a Reiki session to understand this better.
What Happens During A Reiki Session?
In this type of healing, a healer basically serves as a channel for the life force energy to enter a recipient's body. Then, this energy finds where it needs to go in their body and heals their ailments. Since this is the universal energy, it is the most intelligent thing in existence. And so, it knows exactly where it needs to go and what it needs to do. This life force energy also enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself.
During a session, a recipient may feel different sensations in their body. They may feel hot or cold, they may get visions, their minds might start racing, and they can also experience various emotions. Also, after a session, some people may cry, some may experience excessive sweating, and others might want to go to sleep. All of this differs from person to person, depending on what is getting healed inside them.
Also, different healers have their own methods of doing Reiki. For example, they might even add other things to a healing session to make it more effective. Some might use crystals and stones, some might include aromatherapy, some might only use their hands, and so on.
No matter what, the fundamentals are the same. A Reiki healer transfers life force energy into a recipient's body. And they do that by moving their hands over their body and transferring energy at specific points. Often a healer uses their intuition to guide them in this process. Also, depending on what you're comfortable with, they will either hover their hands over your body or make physical contact.
How Does Reiki Help?
Now that you have a basic understanding of what Reiki is and how it works, let's now talk about its benefits. As I mentioned above, millions of people have made it a part of their lives and have benefitted immensely. Even research studies are beginning to prove how beneficial Reiki is.
1) It Helps You Relax
This is perhaps the first thing people experience when they take a Reiki session. Just being in the present moment and receiving life force energy is enough to help you release tension, stress, anxiety, and negative energies.
2) It Brings Balance And Harmony
You are essentially a play of your body, mind, and emotions. And you can only live a healthy and harmonious life when all three levels are balanced. This is what Reiki can help you achieve.
3) It Dissolves Energy Blocks
This is one of the most important benefits of Reiki. It promotes a continuous and unfettered flow of life force energy in your body. In the process, a healer releases energy blocks throughout the system. This can heal physical, mental, and emotional ailments. It can also make a person feel much better.
4) It Strengthens Your Immunity
Reiki can help your body get rid of toxins that might have accumulated over time. It can also improve your immunity by helping your body come out of the constant "fight or flight" mode. Basically, it reminds the body to chill out and initiates a self-repair job.
5) It Helps You Sleep Better
This one is a no-brainer. Reiki promotes deep relaxation and releases pent-up emotions and energies. As a result, you might feel a lot lighter and experience deeper levels of sleep.
6) It Helps You Nurture Your Relationships
Reiki can heal your various chakras, including your heart chakra. It can also rebuild you emotionally and enhance your ability to connect with other people and communicate with them. All of this can lead to much better relationships with those around you.
7) It Accelerates Your Natural Healing Ability
Our bodies are infused with life force energy. And it has a natural ability to heal itself over time. However, diseases and disorders can often block this energy. So, a Reiki healer can release these blockages and accelerate your natural healing ability.
8) It Treats Symptoms of Cancer
This is perhaps the most impressive benefit of Reiki. Even though it doesn't cure cancer, it can certainly treat its symptoms like tiredness, pain, depression, etc. This can improve the lives of cancer patients and provide a lot of relief to them.
9) It Can Advance Your Spiritual Development
Reiki encourages you to connect with your inner being. When you experience Reiki, you are left with an unshakeable feeling that there is something deeper about the reality you experience. This can help you go on a seeking journey, which, in turn, can help you grow spiritually.
