Reiki works on all levels of the mind, body, and spiritual. It works on the past, present, and future. It does not follow linear time, because it is energy and can go where it is needed. Reiki is universal life force energy, Chi, Prana, or Mana. It helps one to reach a relaxed state of being in order for you to begin to heal yourself. There is a quote that I love, “The soul usually knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.” –Caroline Myss- This is what reiki helps with.
I have had clients report the effects of reiki as reduction in trauma, anxiety, and stress. It can relieve depression, balances the energy systems, improve sleep, and even helps with pain management. Some have told me that they have more self-esteem, mental clarity and stronger intuition. Reiki can even helps with PTSD, chemotherapy and other medical drug treatment side effects. It promotes self-love, self-care, and healthy life choices. One client had childhood trauma that she needed to work through forgiving the one who caused the pain and herself for allowing it to happen. Reiki and a bit of talk therapy helped her move to forgiveness of everyone including herself. She later told me that she has found an inner peace that she has never known in her whole life and tearfully thanked me for the reiki session that I had given her.
Another client who was a vet with PTSD came to me seeking help. He use to drink to drowned and forget everything he had seen in his time in service. He was angry most of the time and was going through a divorce and some legal problems. Due to all of that he could no longer drown his problems. He asked me to work with him to find a different way to cope. I gave him one reiki treatment and he was hooked. He wanted to learn how I do what I do. So he became one of my students. He has learned about how having a reiki self-practice can help with even more then he originally had wanted to treat.
So whether you have some health issue or are just in need of some relaxation, the benefits of reiki are endless.
