Reiki means ‘Universal Life Force Energy’ and is natural and accessible to everyone, adults, children, babies, animals. It is unconditional, and can be given & received no matter what your spiritual beliefs are. You could say that it is a transfer of unconditional love.
When you have a Reiki Healing session, you will be asked a few questions by your practitioner and you will be asked to lie on a couch or sit on a chair, fully clothed. The healer will make sure that you are feeling safe, supported and comfortable and will put his or her hands on or off your body to transfer the energy to you.
You may feel heat, tingling, cold or very little at all. You may feel a deep sense of peace and relaxation and experience some time of inner calm and reflection which is so sadly lacking in our fast paced world.
Your Reiki Healer has been trained in all aspects of healing. Reiki will give you the balance of energy that is just right for you. The healer is opening up to transfer energy from the highest possible source for you. The energy will come, usually from the palms of his/her hands and go deep within you, lightening up the dense energy that can sometimes be the cause of emotional/physical blocks and gently start to unravel them, allowing the body to return to balance. When we have an part of our body that is out of balance, the energy feels congested. By bringing a lighter healing energy through, this area gently ‘Lightens up’. It is as simple as that.
The more that you are able to relax and trust the therapist, the more you will receive of the healing. Reiki will not harm you; it will allow you to feel a greater sense of balance and clarity and can even act as a kind of ‘Prozac’; lifting the mood and allowing everything to become lighter. It could be described as having an inner workout!
Of course, do not expect a dramatic cessation of all symptoms after one session, although you may feel lighter and more relaxed. Healing yourself is a process, which can take some time, as it has probably taken some time to become out of balance. Maintaining homoeostasis or balance and harmony within could take a little time depending on your body, lifestyle and emotional status. You don’t have to be ill to benefit from Reiki either! Many media personalities as well as people like us have been very pleased with Reiki Healing and have used it to maintain calm and wellbeing on all levels.
We are vibrating on many frequencies of light and it makes sense to work on an energetic level to support our health and wellbeing.
Reiki Healing will stay with you long after a session and you may feel its benefits some time later.
As Reiki can work on a deep cellular level, so past traumas can be stored deep within. Reiki can gradually allow you to let go of these. This is why you may feel slightly emotional yet in a way that is of great relief, like seeing a sad or happy film. It is a clearing away of unexpressed emotions. This could be described as physical, emotional or spiritual detoxification.
You may feel cold, tingling or intense or gentle heat from the healers hands. You may not have felt anything at all but the effect will be good. You may feel relaxed and calm or slightly anxious as you may not be used to lying still for some time! The session usually lasts for 1 hour.
Some people see wonderful colours, answers come eventually, through dreams, insights and inner knowing. Be prepared for change that is just right for you!
Some people feel an enormous sense of elation, wellbeing and purpose that they have not felt for some time and others may feel a peaceful serenity. You will feel the way you need to feel in order to achieve a healing balance.
I am sure that you will enjoy giving yourself the time to experience a Reiki Healing. It could even give you the change that you have been searching for!
