Reiki is a Japanese method for healing that is slowly becoming part of people's busy lives. Many people believe in Reiki healing because their own experiences with it have been good. Reiki is an idea, and the only tools are the healer's hands. How does this healing method that doesn't hurt anyone work, and what do Reiki healers do?
Before we can understand how Reiki works, we need to know what it is. Reiki comes from two words: "Rei," which means "universal," and "Ki," which means "life force" or "energy." This life energy is everywhere in the Universe, so all living things have it. Cosmic energy is another name for this energy. When a Reiki healer gives someone Reiki, the person gets this cosmic energy and gets better.
Does Reiki Mean the Same Thing as Meditation?
Reiki is similar to meditation because it uses the same energy. These are all forms of alternative medicine that everyone can agree on, and many Reiki healers meditate every day. You can feel the same kind of energy in a group setting like a concert, where there are many different kinds of energy. When so many life forces (read: people) come together, this energy can be felt, and things like music or dance can channel it.
During meditation and Reiki, our bodies' receptors are more in tune with the parts of our brains that are not conscious. It helps us understand things that have stuck with us for a long time. This process gives answers to a lot of questions and helps people get over past hurts. It also lets the conscious part of our brains rest, which is why Reiki makes us feel calm and peaceful.
Reiki and meditation have the same roots, but they are used in different ways. Meditation is something you do by yourself, but Reiki can be done on yourself or on someone else. Most kinds of meditation don't need to be attuned, but a Reiki Master has to attune a person before they can use it.
How does Reiki Work?
When we talk about Reiki as it is now, we are talking about something that Dr. Mikao Usui found in 1922. But the idea of healing with energy has been around in some form for a very long time. In every part of the world, people thought that certain symbols were powerful because they helped bring about good things in all areas of life.
In terms of how it works, Reiki is made up of symbols and mantras, which are chants, that call on cosmic energy or universal energy to do what is needed. These goals could be to improve health, relationships, or spirituality. The vibrations and frequencies made by the symbols and mantras help people with physical, mental, and emotional problems get better. These chants and signs are sometimes used together to get the results that are wanted.
When a healer gives Reiki, he or she acts as a channel for Cosmic energy to flow through. During Reiki, the healers don't use any of their own energy, so their energy stays strong.
Reiki and Chakras
Chakra alignment is an important part of Reiki healing, so there is a link between the two. Chakras are spiritual things that are talked about in ancient Hindu and Buddhist texts. Chakras are like gears that help cosmic energy move through a person. There are seven main chakras, which are in the same places as the body's main glands. For example, the Throat Chakra is located where the Thyroid gland is. Chakras do many things on different levels, such as the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
When one or more chakras are blocked, it causes problems related to that chakra. For example, the Solar Plexus chakra controls willpower. When the Solar Plexus Chakra is blocked, you feel helpless and don't want to do anything. In another post, you can learn more about chakras and what they do.
What should you expect from a Reiki session?
Read on if you want to try Reiki sessions but don't know what to expect. First-timers are told that Reiki healing is like touch therapy with chants, but it can also be done from afar. The Reiki healer will close his or her eyes and give Reiki to the healee (the one receiving Reiki healing). Healees close their eyes and lie down or sit in comfort. Healees will feel small vibrations or a warm feeling around them. Many of the people I heal fall asleep during the session and wake up feeling calm. Many people feel much less stressed after the first session.
Reiki is used by a lot of people to improve their relationships, reduce stress, ease physical pain, help with sleep problems, calm anxiety, and do many other things. The list is long, so it needs to be its own blog post.
Should I go for Reiki?
Many people who get Reiki for the first time aren't sure about it, but the only way to really understand it is to try it. I have seen people who didn't believe in Reiki become believers after experiencing its benefits. People are still trying to figure out how Reiki works, but we can't deny that it has helped a lot of people. There is a reason why so many hospitals around the world let their patients get Reiki.
Through our team of healers, we make sure that people who come to Asaino for healing get good results and have a great time. We look at the problems in a systematic way and work through them in a clear way. It's easy and quick to book a session. You can book a session for Reiki in person or from afar at Asaino.
