Reiki uses the universe’s energy to heal you. It is as simple as that. But, such a simple concept has far reaching benefits. If you have ever had a Reiki session, you may be able to relate to what I am saying as far as the benefits of Reiki. After a Reiki session, you feel a sense of calm, and an absence of any rush to get anywhere. You feel at peace with your inner self, wherever you are at that moment.
Through Reiki, the universe is trying to help you get rid of any problems that might be troubling you. You may feel energized; you may feel relaxed; you may even feel like crying. It all depends on what you were seeking from Reiki, and by extension, from the universe.
There are so many benefits of Reiki. Here are some of the most compelling ones.
1. Reiki Helps You Feel Healthier
Think of Reiki as the warmth that will dissolve your problems. When the energy of the universe flows through you, it brings healing powers with it. If you are suffering from backaches, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, or any other such complications, Reiki may help you minimize your physical pains.
Papers published in reliable journals like Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine and PubMed have shed light on Reiki’s healing properties. For example, one study confirmed that “Burnout is a work-related mental health impairment comprising three dimensions: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment. Reiki aims to help replenish and rebalance the body’s energetic system, thus stimulating the healing process” (Díaz-Rodríguez, Arroyo-Morales, Fernández-de-las-Peñas, García-Lafuente, García-Royo, Tomás-Rojas, 2011).
Did you know that Reiki may help you sleep better, even if you have been fighting nighttime depression or insomnia? As you get more sleep, you will feel more energized thus increasing your overall feeling of wellness.
2. Reiki Helps You Regain Focus
Through Reiki, you allow the universe’s energy to flow through you. As more of it flows through your body, mind, and soul, it clears out a lot of clutter. Reiki puts your chakras–the center of spiritual power in the human body–in balance. When your chakras are balanced, you will begin to feel like you have gained a new perspective on life. Everything will appear clearer – your life, your adversities, your career path, everything.
Best of all, this shift helps you regain focus in your life. When you truly understand the importance of different aspects of your life, you can prioritize them better. Proper prioritization helps you get things done. Once you get into this cycle of clarity, it will sustain itself. Consider having someone to guide you in allowing the universe’s energy to help you. Once you learn the tools and techniques, you can practice self-healing.
3. Reiki Helps You Get Rid of Bad Karma
Think of bad karma like a blockage in your system. When there is a blockage in an artery, the blood flow to the heart is reduced, and it leads to a cardiac arrest. Similarly, when you have bad karma around you, your energy may get trapped. Such interruptions to the flow of energy may express themselves in a variety of forms. You may feel irritated, depressed, or it may even take the form of a major physical problem.
Reiki can help you cleanse your karma. The blockages can be removed by a Reiki master. The Reiki master will channel the energy of the universe through herself, and into you to cleanse you of the bad karma surrounding you.
4. Reiki Helps You Magnetize Abundance
The universe works through your will. If you think and believe that you deserve happiness, then the universe gives you just that. If you believe that you are born to fail, then it will agree with you as well. Abundance and prosperity will be yours if you can channel the right energy. Reiki is your conduit to universe’s positive energy.
A Reiki session can help you be more affirmative. You can also use the energy generated by Reiki to touch the things around you. A Reiki charged ball can be put in your bank account. The more you are in contact with the vibration that brings abundance, the more you will attract it.
5. Reiki Helps You Feel Empowered
Reiki has a powerful calming effect. When you are at your calmest, you are free to accept all your flaws and embrace your good qualities. Do you know what that means? You become self-aware; aware of your role in the larger universe, and how you fit in the grand scheme.
When you can stop focusing on your shortcomings and start working on them, you become more empowered. The hopelessness goes away because now you can take charge of your life. You can steer it in any way you like. The power is in your hands. And I bet you didn’t realize your hands can heal you?
6. Reiki Helps Release the Stress
Stress is a by-product of our ridiculously fast lives. Right from the time that you wake up to the time you fall asleep, you are bombarded with more information than you can ever consume. You need to stop, sit down, and relax.
One of the benefits of Reiki is that it can help you achieve spiritual peace, which is peace on a spirit level. This benefit of Reiki has become more and more relevant as the times are changing. In fact, some studies have shown that Reiki relaxes people who work in high-stress jobs.
After a Reiki session, some people feel sad for a day. You may even cry. But, remember that these are the negative energies that are being released from you. That’s Reiki helping you. You are finally healing.
7. Reiki Helps You with Creativity
Office work, ads, news, gossip, politics, and the list of attention-grabbing aspects of modern life goes on. As the numbers of screens around us have increased, we have no time for ourselves. Creativity stems from a clarity of mind and the power of imagination.
Achieving a higher level of mental focus is one of the most well-known benefits of Reiki. When you are in a Reiki session, the proper flow of healing energy removes all kinds of energy blocks in your mind and spirit to help you unleash your creativity. Since you are at a heightened energy state, you can think better, imagine more, and create a fresh new world around yourself.
8. Reiki Helps You Get in Touch With the Spiritual Side
Reiki treatments often lead to spiritual growth. When you are not being bogged down by the trivial everyday worries, you have more mental space to ask important questions. You want to find a purpose to life.
If you allow Reiki to help you, its techniques will help your spirit be at peace. When your spirit is at peace, you feel emotional tranquility that isn’t easily disturbed. This transformation is essential if you seek a greater truth. If you want to find your life’s purpose, you need to be at peace with yourself. Then, by opening your spiritual eye to what the universe is trying to communicate to you, you are more likely to find the meaning of your existence.
9. Reiki Assists in Recovering From Illness
Reiki works with the energy of the universe. A Reiki practitioner sees everything in terms of energy. A longtime illness could be associated with a disturbance in your energy field. Reiki may be helpful in bringing it back in balance.
Look at it this way. When the mind and the soul are healed, the body is more likely to heal itself. The diseases are often external expressions of energy disturbances, and Reiki works in balance with your medical providers to help you correct disturbances.
