One of the most important and under served places for Reiki Healing work is in hospitals. Reiki is a hands on (and at times off the body) healing technique which has begun being used in hospitals recently and has been publicized by Dr. Mehmet Oz. He states that it helps to relax his open-heart surgery patients before medication for an added advantage of an optimized stress reduced environment. On his syndicated television show, he stated: “If we put cupping in the hybrid category between biomanipulation and energy,” Dr. Oz added that, “It provides me with a good segue to what I think may be ultimately the most important alternative medicine treatment of all. And we are embarking on this whole new vista of opportunities, it broadens dramatically the spectrum of where we might be able to go in our bodies, and this is the area of energy medicine.”
Reiki healing work can counter balance the unnatural hospital environment with a very natural feeling. All that beeping from the machines, the sleeplessness from constant albeit well meant interruptions and possibly bags of fluids attached to the body. Often the hospital setting is very unsettling with many noises and the above mentioned interruptions it can be difficult to rest and even sleep at times. Reiki Healing is an usually deep restful state to be in. A few minutes in Reiki Healing can feel like many minutes of deep rest. Reiki Healing is a very useful tool to connect quickly and strongly to deep
As the saying goes, “money can’t buy happiness”…but Reiki is a way to true happiness. When we begin on a peaceful path towards balance we are in effect moving towards self healing. Our wants and desires take a back seat to our gratitude and present moment consciousness. We focus on what we have and not on what we want. Simpler said then done. To look at one’s surroundings and notice the abundance that exists in our immediate and present moment is a brilliant side effect of Reiki practice. This is a side effect we want! Reiki energy is boundless love. There is no limit to it. As an endlessly running river flows, so does the healing Reiki energy if we invite it and allow it into our daily lives.
Our culture is built on consumerism. The acquisition of more and more. How can we stop and be grateful for every breath? We need quiet and peace of mind. Our pursuit of happiness cannot be achieved through material possessions. The obsession of capitalism is out of balance in our world. How can millions starve whilst many are on a warpath to greed and all its pitfalls. This is out of balance and we must wake up to it. We must know that our voice matters and that by bringing our self back to truth and love we are beginning the process of healing the
There is a general curiosity about Reiki Healing, how it works and alternately, “Is Reiki Healing for you?” Here we will introduce some of the basic principles of Reiki Healing to illustrate its ideology and simple, practical function to find out if in fact, Reiki healing works for you.
Compassion, a basic principle in Reiki Healing is an essential element in this healing modality. If you are someone who is sensitive to others needs and to your environment this may be an excellent technique for you. Reiki helps us channel our compassionate nature in a way that is productive and does not “drain” ourselves. By accessing the universal life force that is all around us we are fed constantly. This universal energy source is like an endless river that we can access if we are feeling depleted in any way. This sense is very empowering and can be accessed at any time.
Intention is defined as having a purpose of an outcome. When we begin a project or any task with a clear intention that task will be easier to attain. With more focus on an outcome it will be more more effortless and focused as we move through the steps of achieving our goals. Intention in Reiki healing clarifies and creates a positive effectiveness to the work and any goal. For example: a job interview, healing ourselves and calming a fussy
Are two words that are closely linked when one ponders holistic health. Healing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level is amplified many times by the use of Reiki. Likewise, Reiki is in itself healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. How does one enhance the power of both healing and Reiki? The answer lies in two very important principles in Reiki: Intention and Gratitude. Being purposeful and specific with these principles can greatly enhance healing and reiki.
When one is trying to heal a simple thought of positivity can make that person feel a great deal better. The intention of getting better, of wellness can in fact bring about a speedier recovery. This is similar to the power of prayer. Thoughts are energy and have effects on us. Fear and worry are both negative energies and may enhance a negative effect. That is why the use of Reiki which is universal healing energy will help the healing process as it is positive energy. By imagining health and happiness of an outcome i.e. intention, a person may in fact help themselves greatly in their own recovery.
Gratitude works similarly to intention in that they both shift the mind’s (and spirit’s) focus to a positive outcome. By remembering what we are thankful for we realize how blessed we are. Our greed is dissolved and we can be left with a blissful feeling of contentment. This feeling sounds simple
Reiki addresses balance on our mind’s, bodies, and spirit’s optimal equilibrium. We are disconnected when we are not in balance. Think of a car that needs re-alignment every so often. Without it, the car would wear itself out. It would breakdown. So it is with our own misalignment. The truth and beauty around us is not seen and is taken for granted because we are preoccupied with trappings that are not in alignment of our true soul’s purpose. Reiki re-connects us to that truth. Reiki practice encompasses the great wisdom of balance, connection, and compassion. Reiki will bring us closer to health and healing. This individual healing can lead to an overall well-being and in turn help to heal the planet. We must first begin with ourselves and our own balance. Reiki can help us towards balance.
Because of life’s stresses we need to continue on a constant pursuit of balance and wellness. We may come to a point of balance and eventually be knocked off it because our lives are dynamic in nature. The practice of Reiki is a way to remember our true selves. Our true self in our authentic state is in balance. As the saying goes, “we are human-beings, not human-doings.” The Buddhist practice of pursuing present moment consciousness is about truth and helps us to return to that truth and balance. Our awareness helps us in re-assessing
