Reiki uses the universe’s energy to heal you. It is as simple as that. But, such a simple concept has far reaching benefits. If you have ever had a Reiki session, you may be able to relate to what I am saying as far as the benefits of Reiki. After a Reiki session, you feel a sense of calm, and an absence of any rush to get anywhere. You feel at peace with your inner self, wherever you are at that moment.
Through Reiki, the universe is trying to help you get rid of any problems that might be troubling you. You may feel energized; you may feel relaxed; you may even feel like crying. It all depends on what you were seeking from Reiki, and by extension, from the universe.
There are so many benefits of Reiki. Here are some of the most compelling ones.
1. Reiki Helps You Feel Healthier
Think of Reiki as the warmth that will dissolve your problems. When the energy of the universe flows through you, it brings healing powers with it. If you are suffering from backaches, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, or any other such complications, Reiki may help you minimize your physical pains.
Papers published in reliable journals like Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine and PubMed have shed light on Reiki’s healing properties.

Did you know that Reiki may help you sleep better, even if you have been fighting nighttime depression or insomnia? As you get more sleep, you will feel more energized thus increasing your overall feeling of wellness.
2. Reiki Helps You Regain Focus
Through Reiki, you allow the universe’s energy to flow through you. As more of it flows through your body, mind, and soul, it clears out a lot of clutter. Reiki puts your chakras–the center of spiritual power in the human body–in balance. When your chakras are balanced, you will begin to feel like you have gained a new perspective on life. Everything will appear clearer – your life, your adversities, your career path, everything.
Best of all, this shift helps you regain focus in your life. When you truly understand the importance of different aspects of your life, you can prioritize them better. Proper prioritization helps you get things done. Once you get into this cycle of clarity, it will sustain itself. Consider having someone to guide you in allowing the universe’s energy to help you. Once you learn the tools and techniques, you can practice self-healing.
