The Healing Power of Reiki
Energy Medicine for Body, Mind, and Spirit
About a year and a half ago, my five-year-old son became ill with a common virus. He was running a fever, but I chose not to treat it with medication because my training as a Holistic Health Practitioner had made me aware that fever is a sign of the body’s natural defenses working to overcome the virus by increasing body temperature.
So I gave him some homeopathic remedies (Boiron’s Coryzalia for Kids and Ferrum Phosphoricum 30 CH), and put him to bed with warm socks on and a humidifier going in his room. He fell sound asleep.
While he slept, I sat in the dark on my son’s bed, holding his feet from on top of the blankets. Sitting there peacefully, I called in the healing energy of Archangel Raphael (a very strong Angel guide for me as a healer), and something wonderful happened within seconds. My hands started to tingle with a sensation that felt like they were waking up from being asleep. I looked down at my hands in the dark and could see a beautiful emerald green glow coming from them. In that instance, I knew that a healing energy was coming through. Then I was guided to close my eyes and send this healing energy into my son’s auric body as he slept.
Amazingly, his fever broke that night. He woke up in the middle of the night feeling stuffy but so much better.
Later that night, I left his room thinking, “Wow. I’ve never wanted to learn Reiki before, but now I’m feeling this intense pull to do it. I can’t believe this. I never thought I’d become a Reiki Practitioner.” My intuition and gut told me – I had to do this. I had to pursue it.
Within days I had signed up with a beautiful and powerful Reiki Master in private lessons. And my life changed once again.
REIKI (pronounced Ray-Kee, a Japanese healing technique), is the transmission of Divine Life Force Energy through a Reiki Practitioner to another person or living thing. The word Reiki means: REI (universal) KI (vital life force energy). It produces an environment in the body of wellbeing and health. It is a very effective treatment for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing – body, mind, and soul.
Reiki energy treatments are purported to have numerous beneficial effects:
– Healing of the physical body on all levels;
– Strengthening immunity by creating an environment in the body that can more easily fight viruses and bacteria;
– Balancing energy in organs and tissues, alleviating symptoms of discomfort or pain;
– Shifting emotional states (excellent for anxiety relief and depression);
– Relieving pain;
– Inducing relaxation;
– Helping to heal scar tissue; …. and much more.
Reiki is administered by the “laying on of hands,” or a hands-off method can be used if preferred. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us – based on the basic laws of physics that tell us everything is energy. If a person’s ‘life force energy’ is low, then they are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high they are more healthy and emotionally stable. I like to call Reiki “smart energy” because no matter where the practitioner’s hands are laid on the body, the energy that flows through will naturally go to where it’s most needed.
Reiki energy is all encompassing – it works on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. A treatment tends to make both practitioner and client feel like a glowing radiance is flowing around and through them. It’s peaceful and soothing.
Reiki is a simple, natural, safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and always creates a beneficial effect. Reiki does not conflict with any other health care modality or practice. It will not interfere with any conventional medical treatment, and in fact it has been shown to actually enhance medical outcomes. It is a gentle energy and cannot do any harm.
In my practice I’ve seen the most amazing healing transformations occur as a result of this modality of energy work. I cannot be more thankful for the healing power of Reiki and I’m absolutely in love with it. Try it! You will love it!
