Reiki is one of the sweetest and gentlest of energy therapies. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you are certainly familiar with the peace and comfort that are felt every time you place your healing hands over your body.
Aren’t we blessed to have access to this mysterious Divine energy that touches our being in inexplicable ways?
Every once in a while, it helps to remind ourselves of what Reiki is all about. This will help us stay committed to our practice and to enjoy every moment of it!
Reiki is the perfect example of a therapy that is gentle yet powerful. Here are five reasons why-
Wholeness and Harmony
Reiki is the Divine Life Force that animates the physical body and keeps the chakras and energy field in balance. Reiki practice helps harmonize the flow of energy between the physical and energy bodies, thereby creating a sense of wellness. This balance is the natural state of a healthy being. So, when we practice Reiki, we tune in to the inner zone of natural balance and wellness, no matter what we may be experiencing on the outside. Even a body that is sick can get a glimpse of wholeness and harmony when touched by Reiki. So can a troubled mind or a traumatized heart.
Reiki acts as a gentle energy cleanser and gradually washes away energetic toxins accumulated in the aura. If you are an experienced Reiki practitioner, you will know the benefits of giving yourself Reiki when you feel worn out from exhaustion or energy loss. Just as a shower washes away physical dirt from the body, Reiki helps to wash away the impure energies that we constantly pick up from the environment around us, thereby restoring balance and purity.
Apart from daily cleansing, Reiki also helps to clear deeply ingrained patterns that do not help us anymore. Sometimes, it also helps to move out people and situations that do not serve our growth.
A self-Reiki session creates the perfect conditions to enjoy some quiet time. Making time for ourselves to unwind and relax is an important part of self-care. And what better way to do this than to light a candle, put on some soothing music and give ourselves Reiki!
Reiki practice fine tunes our awareness. We become very aware of everything that’s unfolding in our lives. We know what’s working for us and what’s not working. We are well acquainted with our strengths and challenges. We know what to hold on to and what to let go of. Our intuition grows stronger and we move towards self-mastery and empowerment.
Foundation for Energy Work and Soul Growth
Reiki practice is one of the best ways for someone new to energy healing to explore the realm of subtle energies. It also lays a strong foundation for those who wish to explore advanced energy healing techniques. Quoting my own example, consistent Reiki practice opened up my spontaneous connection to the Angelic realms and also helped me explore past life healing on a deeper level. By amplifying our energy sensitivity, Reiki helps us upgrade ourselves through the exploration of other energy therapies.
