Although energy work (including Reiki) is considered to be quite popular, many people still don’t know what it is…it’s like describing the sun to someone who has only ever lived in a cave. Words just won’t do it, but take them out to the sunshine and there you have it – they feel that warmth and glow for themselves! The best way to understand it is through having your own experience of it. This is how you will come to know it, and yourself.
In very simple terms, Reiki supports your body to come into harmony and balance with itself.
This is because Reiki works on the four aspects of your self – your "self" consists of more than just the physical – there are also mental, emotional and spiritual components that make up your complete being. When these components are not in sync with each other, you will notice imbalances. You may look happy on the outside, but on the inside feel the opposite. You may have many friends but feel a lack of true connection and belonging. You may have a successful career but feel a lack of purpose and meaning. You may have physical pain and symptoms but tests show there is “nothing wrong”.
Balance means different things at different times, and the results you experience from Reiki will vary accordingly. If you are tired, you’ll feel re-energised. If you are anxious, you’ll feel peaceful. If you feel stressed, you’ll feel calmer. If you feel out of sorts, you’ll feel more like yourself. If you feel overwhelmed, you’ll discover a sense of peace within. If you feel ungrounded, you’ll feel centered.
Overall, when Reiki brings the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of your self into alignment with one another, you experience a sense of wholeness and wellbeing.
Reiki can offer you so much more when you are open to it. It can deepen your connection to your innate healing power, increase your vitality, support your nervous system and advance your spiritual growth.
The ability to heal is as natural as the ability to breathe, and through Reiki, a practitioner essentially guides the person to bring healing and balance back into their awareness.
