How is it that some people have such calming energy that whenever you meet them, you feel so good about yourself and about everything that you want to be like them or just be around them as much as possible?
This energy healing process in which this soothing energy of one person radiates and transfers to another person is called ‘Reiki’.
This form of energy healing dates back to the late 19 Century, yet its benefits can easily apply to the modern world. Here’s what to know about this gentle practice.
Reiki is based on the idea that the transfer of energy from one person can promote healing energy in another. “ It’s based on the belief that we’re all connected by an unseen universal life-force energy”.
Although there are many different types of energy therapy in different cultures around the world, Dr Mikao Usui, a Buddhist monk turned Japanese doctor, invented Reiki in the late 1800s. He acquired the capacity to heal through soft touch or near touch while meditating for 21 days. Dr Chujiro Hayashi, one of Dr Usui’s trainees maintained and expanded the technique later, incorporating many of the hand postures used today.
How does Reiki work?
We live because the life force flows through us. Our body has Chakras, Meridians and Nadis which are routes to carry the life force in our physical body. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the ‘AURA’. Our physical body’s organs and cells are nourished by the life force, which helps them perform their basic functions. When this passage or flow of life energy is disturbed, our organs and tissues suffer from disturbed function.
Our thoughts, feelings and emotions about ourselves determine the quality of this life energy. Consciously or unconsciously, If at all we accept bad thoughts or feelings about ourselves, our life energy tends to get disrupted. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
What are the benefits of Reiki Healing?
Well, the benefits of reiki healing can’t be counted in numbers, but still, we’ve included it in some major topics to make you understand how it can devote a big role in your life.
- Helps reduce stress and anxiety & depression: – Since Reiki involves channelling energy, one of the major benefits of this healing practice is improving one’s state of mind by reducing stress and anxiety. Reiki can be really powerful in soothing anxiety because ‘being present, ‘being in the moment allows us to get to the underlying root of whatever is causing those feelings.
- Provides relief from chronic pain: – The majority of the pains or aches in our body are caused because of stuck energy in that place. Reiki causes the free flow of life energy throughout our body and hence all the stuck energy gets cleared, providing major relief from chronic pain/illness.
- Heals inflammation and infections: – Due to its stress-relieving effect, Reiki can boost the immune system to more effectively heal and reduce infections and inflammation in the body.
- Promotes emotional healing and spiritual growth: – Reiki promotes peace and well being in people and curbs negative energy. Reiki supports emotional growth and calm in practitioners and patients; yielding increased mental clarity, capacity for love and empathy, and emotional well-being.
Who should use Reiki?
Although Reiki is a useful tool for those who are struggling with anxiety, and even depression, it’s not limited to that function. “I would recommend Reiki to everyone—even babies or pets—because it’s such a gentle, soothing, and restorative practice. “We all carry loads of different emotions, and I like to think of these feelings as glaciers in our body. Reiki helps to break up these glaciers so that pieces can begin to float to the surface, and therefore, we can become more aware of them. A lot of us avoid stillness because we think it’s going to be painful, but Reiki does the opposite, it makes us feel calm and grounded.”
