Though it is an effective healing tool, Reiki should not be overlooked as a self-care practice for healthy people. The subtle energy of reiki is healing and promotes deep relaxation and an overall sense of well-being. The benefits are helpful whether people are sick or well.
When a drop of water is added to a flowing stream, it is immediately and eternally changed. The single drop becomes part of a massive body of water, flowing in the same direction and at the same velocity as the whole. The population in Los Angeles is nearly 4,000,000 people. Like branches on a tree, we are connected to and fed by a single system. Everyday, we are caught up in a shared stream of chaos and drama. Fears, frustrations, anxieties and anger flow from one to another as we walk, play, drive, think, work and mingle throughout the day. Each individual is like that drop of water caught up in the stream of all the other individuals. But what happens when we choose to flow within a different stream of energy?
During Reiki, recipients connect to ki, which is the universal source of life force energy. The heart rate slows and the mind becomes clear as they sink into a state of deep relaxation. In this state, it is possible to tap into the subconscious (intuitive) and superconscious (pure potentiality). It's a time to release anxiety and fear, and open the heart to answers about your life, loves and concerns. It's a creative space for planting seeds and bringing forth a reality that is conducive to your highest and greatest good.
According to ABC News reports, doctors, the military and corporate executives are now prescribing meditation for relaxation and faster healing. But meditation can be difficult on your own if you've never done it. It's hard to shut down and dedicate the time --- there's always something else to be done. With Reiki, meditation comes naturally. Each session is 40-60 minutes of deep and focused relaxation. If there is a specific issue or concern, an intent can be set at the beginning of the session to seek relief or answers from your intuitive self. If there are desires you wish to bring forth, the intent can be directed toward the manifestation of a particular scenario. And the outcome will always be created in the best interest of everyone involved.
Another great benefit of Reiki is that it can be easily learned so you can perform it on yourself to promote serenity, self-healing and a deeper connection to source. Classes are available in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. They are affordable and can be completed in one weekend. Once someone is initiated into the Reiki system of natural healing, the ability and connection remains forever and can be used on plants, animals and humans. It is safe for children and pregnant women. Reiki is an excellent addition to your self-care toolbox. Try it today and feel free to leave your comments below.
