Spiritual Healing Through Reiki
Although Reiki isn’t a religious or particular belief system, many people who
experience it feel uplifted and connected to their innate spirituality. Reiki spiritual healing can occur whether an individual visits a Reiki professional or during self-treatment.
Reiki is all about self-care. This passive vibrational healing process promotes balance
throughout the entire person. Reiki emotional healing soothes in stormy times. Any age
group, from children to seniors, can enjoy a potential reduction in pain, fatigue or other
issues through Reiki healing. Reiki also helps to clear negative thoughts and creates peace of mind.
Many people who partake in treatments hold that Reiki spiritual healing is closer to
meditation than to other types of energy therapies. Spiritual Origins
Reiki treatments currently practiced in the United States link to the 1920s and the teachings of a Japanese lay monk, Mikao Usui. A lifelong spiritual aspirant, he lived during a time where Shinto, Buddhist and Taoist practices co-existed. Thanks to one of his students, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi and then through his student Mrs. Hawayo Takata, Reiki arrived in 1937 in Hawaii and later reached the mainland of the USA, eventually spreading all over the world. Reiki derives from two Japanese words. Rei is
God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power. Ki represents life force energy. Together, they signify life force energy that’s spiritually guided and that flows through each person. The spiritual level is often called the root level or highest Spiritual Healing Through Reiki, The Reiki Times Vol. 22, Issue Q4, 2018 2 level of healing. How Reiki Spiritual Healing works Reiki is very easy to learn. The ability to use it gets transferred to a student during a class. Students can reach an unlimited amount of life force energy to create Reiki spiritual healing. Many people who enjoy the spiritual benefits of Reiki say that the practice puts them in closer touch with experiencing their religion rather than merely its intellectual concepts. As the basis of spiritual healing, Reiki promotes peace and harmony. Some researchers suggest that the trigger for healing occurs at a sub-physical level, or the biofield. This largely undocumented energy field has intricate layers,
proponents believe, that both surround and penetrate the human body. Spiritual healing has been linked to the therapeutic benefits of vibration. The hands of a Reiki practitioner hold energetic vibrations of wellness. Peace and greater potential wellness may occur during self-treatment or during a session with a practitioner. A Reiki session can occur on a massage table or while seated comfortably in a chair. During some sessions, practitioners apply a light touch with their hands. Some hold their hands slightly above the body. Sometimes a person experiences a sense of warming or tingling. Others experience total relaxation that gives them peace of mind and opens them to spiritual and other healing. Reiki is an ideal way to connect or reconnect with the spiritual component of yourself, especially in this busy digital world of modern times. Pleasant, relaxing sessions with a Reiki practitioner typically last an hour to 60 minutes and provide a space of relaxation, peace and calm to help you connect more deeply with your true inner self.
