"Your body is nothing more than an energy system.
The energy that is Life is coursing through your body.
You can direct this energy. You can control it.
This energy is called by many names.
Some call it chi. In some languages it is ki.
There are other names as well. It is all the same thing.
When you remember how to feel this energy,
its subtlety, its power, you can also remember
how to control it, to direct it."
--Communication with God, Neale Donald Walsch
We all have health concerns; areas that are painful, injuries, medical problems, symptoms without a known cause, stresses that won't go away, relationship issues, or just life just throwing "stuff" at us that we don't appreciate. Many of us are dealing with one or more of these, causing frustration in not knowing where to turn or how to cope. Our energy level begins to spiral down, leaving one feeling depressed, overwhelmed and hopeless. Who or what can help? Can Reiki?
Since you are searching on this site, you think it may help you and you're right, it can. Perhaps all your problems cannot be solved within one Reiki treatment session, but initially, wouldn't it help if you simply felt better?
Feeling better starts you on your path to wellness and abundant health, that in which we all strive. We can get our lives back in perspective by thinking more clearly, enabling us to make better decisions. You become more motivated to accomplish the things you desire to do when you FEEL good.
Commonly, when we have a given symptom we seek relief through pharmaceutical means. This may or may not make you feel better and regardless, comes with a hefty price of side effects. It could actually make you feel worse. According to Melody Petersen, author of Our Daily Meds, it is estimated that 100,000 Americans die each year due to side effects from the prescription drugs they are taking. Treating individual symptoms one by one does not address the whole you. A complementary approach is to bring your overall system into balance to allow your body to recover and heal itself. Reiki healing facilitates the return to your natural state of health. Studies have shown that Reiki can improve your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure, moving you away from your daily fight or flight response to a more composed restful phase.
Reiki is a safe complement to Western medicine. It is a powerful and profound natural healing therapy that helps restore balance and health. A Reiki treatment connects the Source guided life force energy with your untapped inner resources. Reiki energy induces the relaxation response, which puts you in the most favorable condition for healing. Reiki is effective immediately and the shift in your well-being can be remarkable. Some chronic conditions, however, may require regular treatments to complete the healing process.
Currently many of the commonly reported benefits of receiving a Reiki treatment are of an anecdotal nature and may or may not have been verified through clinical trials. There is never a "cookie cutter" response to a Reiki treatment as we are all different with differing needs. Reiki is beneficial on all levels; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It has the great capacity to help you enhance every aspect of your life. The best way to discover how Reiki works for you is to give it a try.
