You may have heard of Energy Work, healers, alternative medicine and such. Reiki is all the above and yet, Reiki is something entirely different.
Everyone’s energy is different. Reiki is a personal experience. It is, after all, energy. Energy that comes from the Universe (or the Divine if you’d prefer the use of a different term) is a gift for Humanity. The Reiki Practitioner is a strong partner in the healing process. The energy is as pure as Light and filled with Love. The Practitioner is an extension of that energy in order for the treatment to be effective.
The stronger, healthier and balanced the practitioner is, the stronger the Light that heals.
Now, most of you don’t like to be told you need healing. I don’t like the idea either. I’d like to look at Reiki as a tool to empower you on your own journey. Reiki is the balance between mind-body and soul that we all need in order to become stronger. The stronger we become, the better we are at starting on the journey towards perfection.
We all have the strength to deal with whatever ails us. It’s just that sometimes life becomes so hectic, things happen so fast, and we become unbalanced. And that’s where Reiki comes to the rescue. Through its gentle yet powerful energy, through its continuous stream of Light and Love, Reiki aids us to unblock, move and release that emotion we got stuck with and no longer serves us.
The treatment usually takes one hour. Some prefer the first treatment to be 90 minutes - as some issues need additional time and attention. Each session is a different experience. Sometime you may feel hot, sometime you may feel cold – Reiki knows best what your body needs. And no matter what you experience, at the end of the session you will feel relaxed and joyful.
While the treatment will work on various issues, the sense of calm and relaxation will be the one that you will take home. And that is the gift that Reiki offers you. In the following days you’ll experience some changes for the better. The changes that come from the knowing that you are strong and you are in control of your life.
Now, will you try it? Most likely….. One day….. Probably….
Like everything else, it’s a matter of personal preference. Belief in your own personal power is key.
Looking for a magic pill to solve your problems? Then, I would not recommend it. It’s not a cure all solution. It’s a tool to empowerment and, like every tool; the operator plays a very important role.
When you are ready, please give Reiki a try. You’ll be amazed at the results.
