In the past few years there has been a rise in the awareness in the practice of Reiki, with a huge increase in interest in the last two years during the pandemic. And because of the increase in interest, there may be some confusion around what Reiki is, how Reiki works, and why one should consider Reiki when choosing a self-care practice.
Simply put, Reiki is a light touch method of deep relaxation that promotes healing. And although Reiki is simple, it is very profound. Reiki is the highest form of universal energy – the energy of love. Using a gentle touch, the practitioner guides life force energy to the receiver with a healing intention.
Reiki will support the body to heal itself by clearing out energy blocks – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Reiki will cleanse the body and mind of poisons and toxins, both physical and mental, and will revitalize and restore power to the physical and spiritual body.
A Reiki session provides the time to go within and get in touch with your inner self – or in other words – connect with your gut. Why is that important? Because your gut is an internal sensor, always perceiving, recognizing, discerning the best course of action. Sadly, we too often do not listen to our internal voice but follow the self-absorbed voice of the ego. Not a big surprise, the voice of the ego is seductive with the promise of quick and easy gratification. But our true source of purpose and joy is our inner voice, the still, small expression of the soul.
When we begin a practice of self-care that creates space to listen to our inner voice, we will begin to step into a life of purpose and prosperity, a life that allows us expansion, expression, and deep joy.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
