Reiki Healing in Modern Times
Have you ever felt completely down in the dumps and not been able to place a finger on why? Very often, when you feel that low, you wish it would just go away and that you’d just feel happier and less anxious. If you have caught yourself feeling this way often and wish to be more peaceful and radiant, then Reiki healing is for you. Let’s take a look at what Reiki healing really is.
What is Reiki?
Reiki healing has been around for about a century and can be traced back to the teachings and spiritual understanding of Dr. Mikao Usio in the early 20th century. An energy healing treatment that cleanses you of negative energy and replaces it with clean energy, Reiki works holistically for your mind and body. The word Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words, rei, and ki. Rei refers to a higher power that is responsible for the entire functioning of the universe, and ki refers to intangible energy flowing through all living beings across the universe. The idea of Reiki, thus, lies in the understanding that there is an invisible energy that flows through us and is what causes us to contain life.
A high amount of energy flowing through our bodies can lead us to be healthy and happy, whereas a low amount of it can cause us to feel low and unhappy. Reiki is an alternative medical technique that promotes healing and supports mental clarity and wellbeing.
For many years, the validity and positive effects of Reiki were considered with utmost skepticism because of the intangible nature of the energies surrounding and permeating through our bodies. However, in recent years, scientific research has proved that Reiki does actually work, and has a positive effect on the biological balance of the human body. This has contributed to the increasing popularity of Reiki healing in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the rest of the UAE.
How exactly does Reiki work?
Reiki practitioners usually start by understanding your general medical state and history and chart out a treatment plan for you. This treatment plan will tell you how many sessions are ideal for you and how you will go about them.
You are then placed in a comfortable situation, where you may be sitting or lying down, and there may be soothing music in the background. The lights are dimmed to enhance the setting for relaxation.
Your practitioner will then place their hands on or slightly above your body, gently; and move their way from head to toe, with a little more focus on certain parts of the body. This is done to remove any energy ‘blocks’ that are formed by transferring energy to you. Energy blocks are stagnant accumulations of energy around body parts that may have suffered an injury. These blocks cause unpleasant emotions and thought patterns. Removing them promotes physical healing and strengthens positive energy. A Reiki healing session typically lasts from 20 minutes to an hour and you may sometimes feel a tingling sensation in your body when it is being conducted.
How can Reiki help you?
Understanding how Reiki can help is important for you to assess how it may help you.
Allowing external energy to be channeled and letting it permeate your body has been known to benefit people in the following ways:
- Reduction of anxiety
- Combating against depression
- Reduction in stress levels
- Relief from fatigue
- Supplementary in reducing the trauma caused by conditions like cancer, autism, and Crohn’s disease, to name a few
- Reduction in blood pressure
The most widely felt effect of Reiki is deep relaxation and a reduction in stress levels. Since it is non-invasive, it has little to no side effects.
You can administer Reiki, too!
