Writers block! How to explain the art of Reiki???
For me each time I talk to clients and friends about Reiki it changes subtly, always containing the same message but to me as simple and complex as life itself.
Incredibly profound yet so simple
So what is it??
Reiki is an energy healing practice that is usually done by placing the hands in a series of positions over or slightly above the body. Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level.
(Rosleen, ‘The Thirsty Soul’)
Lets expand on this a little…
The word itself means spiritual (rei) energy (ki) and originates from Japan. The art of Reiki is inherently universal in nature and not restricted to any culture, religion or faith.
Reiki essentially taps into the flow of energy that is all around us and within each and every thing in the universe. Each and every thing in the universe is connected by this same life force energy, material and immaterial.
During a Reiki session the therapist becomes aware of the flow of life force energy and focuses this flow towards the client through their hands to bring about healing and balance to their mind, body and spirit.
Science is only just now starting to measure the life force energy in all things and is now able to measure the frequency of our thoughts and feelings. This is not all just woo woo stuff anymore!
Reiki is powerful and can be used to encourage healing and balance in any aspect of the mind, body and spirit of a person.
Here are just some of the things Reiki can help you with…
- Stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities.
- Immune system support, aids in better sleep and improves and maintains general health and well being.
- Spiritual Growth can support Inner peace and Harmony.
- Enhancing learning by balancing the mind and emotions to cope with everyday stress.
- Memory and mental clarity which helps alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger.
- Reiki can also strengthen personal relationships, whilst offering relief during emotional distress.
Can we just say Reiki is amazing for everything! Yes, yes we can.
I have experienced Reiki myself several times now as a client (and many times now as a therapist) but remember distinctly my first session with Melinda:
I felt warmth radiating down my problem shoulder, I knew Mel wasn’t touching me but could feel the warmth spreading down and easing my pain and stiffness. I also felt completely awake and aware of my entire being but incredibly relaxed at the same time. The session I had went for an hour but felt like 15 minutes! I now recognise the deep meditative state that I was in… It was such an amazing experience.
My experience is just an example for you…each person’s experience of Reiki is as individual as they are.
If this sounds like something you would love to experience please get in touch with us. You are spoilt for choice and have 3 Reiki therapists to choose from, myself, Holly and Tressa would love to treat you to a Reiki session.
