1. You don’t have to get tired while healing others or yourself, as you channel external energy
Since the very first level we have learned Reiki is a universal energy, and we are the channels. So what does it exactly mean? In lay man terms we become channel to the purest positive energy which surrounds us. Since it is an external energy, our energy does not get used up, hence after self healing or healing others, we do not feel tired or drained out but refreshed as a lot of healing happens in our body.
2. You do self healing every day, hence your chakras become balanced and open
As we do self healing, by giving Reiki to our minor and major chakras, starting from head to toe, with time, our chakras are neither blocked nor over active, they are open and balanced, hence keeping our life smooth be it physical, emotional or situational.
3. Karma is cleaned, hence better present and future
There are many ways to clean our karmas with Reiki, call upon the angels, or simple karma clearing, etc. When we erase our negative karmas, all the problems in the present and in the future get removed, as the karma related to the issues is nullified and hence our life is automatically better!
4. Your psychic abilities develop
We all have a few psychic abilities, which are dormant as we do not know of their existence. In Reiki as we become more aware of our own selves and others, we also become aware of the gifts we have and we can fine tune them. For ex: My teacher Ananya Sen was always a Clair cognizant but her ability improved by bounds when she came into the practice. My clairvoyance improved, and I am also now Clairsentient, a power which I developed after I came into this practice.
5. Negative people and toxic relations are out
Reiki always shields us from negative people and situation. It will always fizzle out relations who do not serve any purpose to us, also will remove all frenemies and people from our life who do not mean well or are not good for us. A friend of mine was in a toxic relation for a very long time, she learned Reiki to heal her relationship, but within 21 days the person left her, and she did not even feel bad about it, as she finally felt free!
6. You are synced with the Universe and the signs it gives you
As a Reiki practitioner, we develop the wisdom to understand when a sign from the Universe is shown to us, it may be a name on a bill board, or someone says something out of the blue and you know the message is for you, or repetition of numbers in a certain sequence etc. They generally give us sign when we have asked a question, or warn us from some kind of danger, or just to let us know when we are about to cross an important thresh hold in our life.
In 2013-14, I was working for a statistical firm, where most of our clients were students, who wanted to get statistical analysis done for their project, but most of the students were from one particular college, and within a year I landed up working for the same college as a professor. I realized it was Universe way of telling me, where my next step was.
7. Aura gets healed, cords get removed
Aura is the bio magnetic energy field which surrounds our physical body. Our auras interact with each other, hence the quote “Love at first sight.” As it’s our auras first fall in love with each other, than us! As we interact with a lot of people every day, we may take in a lot of negativity from others or just in general our aura can get polluted, when our aura gets polluted, we tend to attract negative people and situations in life, a regular aura brushing with Reiki shall do wonders.
Cords again are not good for people; they tend to restrict us from moving ahead. Cord can be between people, karmic, spiritual etc. Regular cord removal helps us to forge better relationships, with people and move ahead in our life. We can remove cords with Reiki or calling upon Archangel Michael.
8. Most of the wishes manifest
Most of our wishes get manifested in Reiki, provided it is for our highest good. It helps us in all walks of life, be it improvement of health, getting a job, expanding business, or day to day life. You ask and give healing; Reiki will fulfill it for you.
9. You can work with lower and higher beings
The beautiful distance healing symbols help us to connect with people in the physical as well as the spiritual plane. We can give healing by connecting to a person who is in a different place, and can also connect to higher beings like Archangel Michael or any Ascended Master to guide you for healing, or you can also connect to lower beings like the souls who are not transited, to help them reach the light.
10. You can differentiate between being religious and spiritual
Reiki is not a religion; it is a way of life. It helps us to understand our needs and wants, and develop a compassion outlook towards the world and ourselves. Instead of giving its own point of view, Reiki helps us discover our own point of view. It just asks to have faith and trust on ourselves and our life become much meaningful and help us to understand the finer nuances which happen for our good.
11. You understand death is not an end, but a new beginning
“Nothing ever truly dies. The Universe wastes nothing. Everything is simply transformed.”
Death is not an end; it is a new beginning for us. We realize that our body is just temporary it is our soul which is the real existence. When we pass away, we simply leave this human form of body to maybe go into another one and learn new life lessons and become more mature as a soul, and for those who have already learned their life lessons help others as a spirit guide or a guardian angel and guide them to the right direction. The only mere changes are the change of responsibility.
12. All you need for healing is your intention
The best part about Reiki is, you do not need any rock salt or crystal to heal. Of course we can use them as addition, to boost our healing, but sometimes when we are travelling, we can just give healing through a chi ball or a touch or just plain send Reiki through our mind to the certain situation. Reiki cannot get handier than this!
