Reiki Energy Healing is one of the most gentle and non-evasive forms of healing.
Reiki is the method of tapping into the Universal Life Force Energy that surrounds us every day and using that energy to heal the energy imbalances and blockages we can hold within our bodies. These blockages can be caused from stress, illness, past pain, trauma and more.
When we hold onto the energy of emotions that we experienced in our past, the energy of the emotion is still present in our unconscious energy field and travels throughout our body like "free radical energy" as I like to call it. Reiki helps to release these blockages by allowing the body to go into a calm and relaxing state and by connecting with our mind, body and spirit. The white, loving light of Reiki travels from the crown chakra, (the top of the head) and down to the feet. Many people report feeling a release through both their head, and their feet and a feeling of lightness within, like a heavy weight has been lifted.
I've had many clients tell me that they felt like their brain was "whooshing" around in their head and some say they could actually feel the energy moving from one part of their head to the other side. When working on the crown chakra, Reiki Practitioners are working on balancing the right and left brain hemispheres, so it's no wonder people can feel what is energetically taking place.
Another common thing people feel is the sensations of the Reiki Practitioners hands on places they aren't actually touching, and the theory is that it is the hands of Spirit Guides and or Angels we call in to help us with the treatments. I've had clients open their eyes to look up and see where I am because the sensation of the hands on their body feels very apparent. However, there isn't anything scary to be said, in fact I'm told the feeling is very soothing, loving and comforting.
Reiki also helps with injury and pain relief by traveling to the point of pain and releasing the accumulation of energy and dissipating it. Often the client will feel the pain more intense where the injury or pain is present and once the feeling has come up and has been "awakened," it then is released or relieved of the pain.
Reiki has also been known to help with stress relief. We live in a society where we can feel bombarded by the stresses from our jobs, our home life and even those around us. We hold onto this stress and carry it around with us like a weight on our shoulders all day, every day. The beautiful thing about Reiki is that it can help relieve this stress by allowing the body to relax into a deep state and releasing from our conscious and unconscious energy what simply does not serve us purpose. It allows us to put our life into perspective and helps us understand that all that stress and those little worries aren't really as "important" as we think they are.
Stress can do damage on our bodies, I personally believe it is the root cause of many illnesses and dis-ease. It can even interfere with our cortisol and hormone levels and affect our bodies ability to conceive. I know this to be true as I've treated six clients now who were dealing with infertility issues and by receiving continual Reiki Sessions (about four sessions), they were able to conceive. All from releasing their stress and balancing their hormones, it's pretty amazing! You can read more about Reiki and infertility HERE.
There are so many wonderful things to be said when it comes to Reiki Energy Healing and a lot of times a Reiki Practitioner isn't even aware of what's happening "behind the scenes," we just hold space for our clients, visualize loving and healing light and send positive intentions for the person we are working with and we allow the Universal Life Force Energy to do it's magic.
"A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space
for you while you awaken your inner healer, so you may heal yourself."
