Reiki for years has been used as a healing practice, but what about a regular person who is looking for self-development? Self-development can be in many aspects. In my last blog, I shared some amazing facts about how a human brain is dominated by one or two of four thinking modes which include analytical, sequential, interpersonal, and imaginative thinking. Hence you need a therapeutic method to balance all the four thinking modes to make the best use of your skills and explore new paradigms be it in your personal or professional life.
Self-development is not something new, successful people have emphasized on the concept for years. Various practices help you in this self-growth journey. Some of the most recommended ways are meditating, reading and learning new skills (in general pushing on your boundaries to create a wider circle of reach). But not all methods do justice to each one of us. Every human has a different tune they dance on, and no one method works for all. It can be the therapeutic art sessions like Mandala coloring or it can be meditation and balancing of your chakras or it can be anything else… What’s most important here is, it should work!
Reiki heals you from within
Reiki is one of the methods of balancing your chakra energy levels and causing a visible change in your life. It has been found in studies that Reiki can help in healing emotional and physical damages caused over time. It is a meditation method that can be used to balance your energy and heal you.
Things with motion can be peaceful too. We forget sometimes how soothing it is to see a flowing river, though, in motion, it is calm and perfectly synchronized with nature. When you are calm within, the life outside your human shell doesn’t matter, how hectic it will have no damaging effect on you.
For being bullet-proof from the toxic world outside, you need to be really strong inside. Even if you are taking medical help to combat your condition, you need to have a self-healing mechanism to respond to the treatment. Otherwise, it would be like running on high-medical doses you need to take all your life.
Reiki benefits you by reducing stress and negative attitude towards things. It helps you let go of things stopping you from reaching your potential. Less stress is always good, be it your personal or professional life. You will start learning from your personal experience and this new knowledge unleashes you.
Law of attraction and Reiki
Law of attraction as I know many of you must be known to and are wanting to practice. But it works on the principle of attracting good or bad things that you think about. Letting go of negative thoughts thus will help you raise a positive you, which will give you an optimistic perspective. Optimism and positive thinking attract good things. What good can law attraction do for you, if you are negative about life or things?
Power of Reiki and Goal Actualization
To fulfill what you have always wanted to do, goal actualization is an important aspect of human life. We are strongly attached to our dreams and goals in life. When not fulfilled, people find themselves in a depressing and dark side, inescapable. If you are finding it difficult to tread water, then Reiki can help you. You start feeling more confident about the steps you take to climb all over up.
The best part about Reiki is its combination of spiritual and mental development. It gives you a purpose for self-improvement. Tell me, what would be more difficult? Knowing a situation and finding a solution to it, or being unknown to a situation and randomly making attempts? Of course, the latter. Reiki helps you deep-dive into your consciousness and reveals a path to knowing yourself. Not only just the good things but the ones we neglect or are arrogant to confront. Seek those qualities, be it good or bad, and you know a sure way to self-improvement.
Reiki and Productivity
Meditation in any form is a good way to self-heal, spiritually and mentally. A large part of meditation solely works on strengthening your physical elements. Arteries, nerves, muscles, glands, bones, and organs are all drawing energy from your restored chakra levels. It improves you not only on a mental level but provides physical strength too.
Ancient Indian findings give you evidence on how life force energy can be used as a treatment. You are physically strong but lack the motivation, or you are highly motivated but lack the energy. Both result in a job not done well. You need to align different elements, and it is going to happen if you give your body a chance to tell you its problem and don’t go into a self-denial phase.
What do you need to do in case you wish to get started?
The first step is the most difficult, and the rest is a child’s play once you start out. I say the first step is the most difficult as from my personal experience, we humans have a tendency to denounce the learned truth if it doesn’t match our point of thinking. What’s stopping you is not lack of time or knowledge, it’s your self-denial about something being off balance.
I would suggest, introspect. Give yourself time to reflect on your condition. Then start by practicing meditation at home (but the right way). Learn it from an expert, join classes or groups that can help you and I am pretty sure the result would be not just visible, but drastic and impactful to turn your life around into a positive way.
