I first received Reiki during the winter of 2013. After my first Reiki Healing I was hooked. I spent the next five years researching and receiving my Reiki attunements, so that I can too could channel this life changing energy. Reiki can be used for everything, and everyone can enjoy it. Here is a little blog post where I will answer a few common asked questions about Reiki.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient healing modality that originates from Japan. The technique is used for stress reduction, relaxation, and chakra balancing. The energy is channeled by the Reiki Healer, through their hands and into the recipient. Reiki is essentially life force energy, and when someone’s life force energy is low, they are more susceptible to illness and stress.
During a Reiki session the healer will go through the chakra system to remove any blockages or negative energy. It is an amazing technique that will change your life. It is not religious, or restricting to anyone, it is just energy.
What do you use Reiki for?
Reiki can aid in healing anything from depression to cancer when done regularly by a skilled Reiki healer. It changes the flow of energy in your body and balances the mind and spirit to unite as one. Reiki can be used for headaches, chronic pain, sever illness, and even depression or stress. You do not need to be ill in order to receive reiki. Even if you are perfectly healthy you should still take part in this energy and this is why! Everyday our chakras close and open and different energy toxic or non-toxic enters them. Over time density will build up and create illness. Reiki transforms this negative energy into positive, healthy energy, essentially making your cells dance! It will help you vibrate higher so that you can connect and manifest much faster. Reiki can also be channeled into artifacts like jewelry, or even food. By using products infused with Reiki, you are protecting and cleansing your body without even needing to focus on it.
What is a Reiki session like?
A healing session feels like a wave has washed over your body, making you feel anew and balanced. When you arrive the healer will ask you a few questions about your medical history and what you would like them to focus on. From there you will get ready for the healing, the reiki practitioner might smudge you, or they will go ahead and get started. During a reiki session there is never any reason you should need to be undressed. Reiki goes through blankets, clothes, and through the body. Traditionally reiki is done on a massage table, but it can also be done sitting. For reiki to work the healer does not need to touch you, but some reiki’s feel more comfortable doing that rather than beaming the energy. During the session you will either go thoughtless, or will wave in and out of reality. You will feel very calm and at peace no matter what.
What does Reiki feel like?
Reiki is both a powerful and gentle, and everyone experiences it differently. Some people say it feels like static, almost tickling you, and other people say it feels like warmth. No matter how it feels, it is working. It is common to feel the energy in one part of the body when the healer is over a different body part. It makes you feel more confident, and ready to expand your reality. Reiki is deeply relaxing and will calm the mind so that true healing can happen.
After a healing session you will feel radiant for a few days while your body integrates the energy fully. It is a beautiful experience that everyone should witness. I have been giving Reiki healings for six years now and ever session I learn something new about myself. It has changed my life and I want to share it with the world.
How often should I get Reiki?
There is no exact schedule that Reiki needs to be received in order to see changes. That being said, receiving reiki regularly is best in order to track changes in your body, mind, and spirit. If your availability allows it, I prefer to do weekly sessions, especially if I am in a stressful time in my life. Receiving Reiki even just once a month will change your life. A lot of people go about this intuitively; whenever they feel that their energy is low, or illness is coming they will schedule a Reiki healing. It is completely up to you! <3
Reiki is a gorgeous healing modality. There are so many benefits that come from Reiki healings. It is a free flowing way to change your life and raise your vibration. I hope that I answered any questions about this energy!
