What is Reiki
Although Reiki is most commonly recognised as a holistic energy healing practice that promotes relaxation and stress reduction, on a much deeper level, Reiki can serve as a spiritual path to awakening, and has the potential to completely transform your life!
How does Reiki work?
Every time your mind or body undergoes a stressful experience that you are unable to fully heal at the time, stagnant energy builds up, and this can create energetic blockages.
ENERGETIC BLOCKAGES CAUSE YOU TO FEEL TIRED, STRESSED AND SICK.
Reiki is a Japanese practice of energy healing that helps dissolve these blockages.
Once the free-flow of energy is restored, your mind, body and soul return to a state of balance.
Coming back to balance can often feel like a fog has cleared, or a heavy weight has lifted.
After receiving Reiki, people often report feeling a deep sense of clarity, calm and inner peace.
Reiki involves the simple act of a practitioner laying their hands either on, or above the receiver’s body, and allowing Reiki energy to flow through them, to areas in need of re-balancing.
Reiki can be used for self-healing, as well as a treatment that can be given to others; either in-person, or remotely, by distance.
What Does Reiki Feel Like?
While receiving Reiki you may experience moments of insight, memory flashbacks, feelings of warmth and tingling, or settle into a blissful, dream-like state of deep relaxation.
You Don't Need to Believe!
It is not necessary to believe in Reiki for it to work - once you experience its effects, I guarantee you won’t need any convincing!
Benefits of Reiki
WHEN WE WORK DIRECTLY WITH ENERGY, EVERYTHING MOVES FASTER.
Reiki has the ability to accelerate physical and mental healing, helping you to transform the circumstances within your physical life and manifest your desired outcomes faster.
Heals the Root Cause
While helping to relieve the symptoms of physical or mental illness, Reiki simultaneously goes to work on the root cause.
Because your energy-body operates on a subconscious level, Reiki has the ability to bypass the conscious mind, “sneak in through the side door”, and access the subconscious psyche, where your unprocessed emotions get stored.
Receiving Reiki will help you to release these unprocessed emotions that may have been blocking your ability to move forward and live the happy, healthy life you deserve.
This can result in profound shifts in the way you think, feel and function in the world.
Clarity & Insights
During a Reiki treatment, your brain enters a delta brainwave state, which resembles what it feels like to be on the verge of being awake and asleep.
The conscious experience of this can feel blissfully meditative and uniquely surreal.
When the brain enters this delta state, you become open to receive insights and gain clarity around situations that you may be struggling to consciously understand or make decisions about.
Relaxes the Nervous System
One of the reasons Reiki is recognised for being such an effective treatment for stress and anxiety is because it relaxes your nervous system, helping to calm the mind and relax the body.
Activates the Body's Natural Healing Mechanisms
Reiki activates the parasympathetic nervous system, causing your muscles to relax, slowing down your breathing and heart-rate, lowering blood pressure, and activating your body’s natural healing mechanisms:
Aiding cell repair
Detoxifying the body
Deep Rest & Restoration
Although Reiki is not a substitute for sleep, the restorative benefits of 1 hour of Reiki can be equivalent to 4 hours of sleep!
When you feel balanced, you function better, and when you feel better it becomes so much easier to maintain that momentum, make healthy lifestyle choices, and create long- term, positive change in your life.
What is an Attunement?
Reiki is a simple, yet powerful practice that can be easily learnt by anyone, however you must first be “attuned” to be able to practice it.
An attunement is a healing ceremony given by a Reiki Master, who uses specific rituals, hand placements and mantras to activate your natural healing abilities, and connect you to the pure source of Reiki.
The ability to channel Reiki through your palms is transferred directly from Master to student.
This process is yet to be found in other healing practices, making it unique to Reiki.
Once attuned to Reiki, this gift of healing remains with you for the rest of your life.
For those who practice Reiki, over time it becomes so much more than a hands-on practice you “do”, and more a practice that you “live”.
Becoming attuned to Reiki can act as a catalyst for intense personal growth, opening your heart and raising your consciousness, unveiling a gateway back to your true self, path and purpose.
