Do you ever look at your healing hands with a sense of awe and wonder?
Before we became Reiki practitioners, we may not have been able to comprehend the magnitude of healing potential in our hands. The minute we are attuned to Reiki and place our hands on our body, something within us shifts.
Recall the time when as a new energy healing practitioner, you placed your hands over your body. Maybe you felt a sense of excitement as your palms grew warm or tingly!
As we practise Reiki regularly, we get accustomed to the amazing healing experience that our hands offer to us. But when we take a pause to reflect, we are able to consciously appreciate the fact that our hands nurture us, almost like a mother.
The beauty of Reiki is that it supports the body, mind and soul, all at once.
Reiki for the Body
During a Reiki self-healing, you may have noticed that the part of the body over which your hands are placed relaxes deeply. The effect of this is especially evident when you are fatigued. Basking in Reiki can gently lull you to sleep. When I wake up from Reiki induced slumber, I feel like every cell in my body has rested deeply. Reiki is indeed an amazing tool to help us slow down, take a break from our daily schedules and get some much needed rest.
Reiki for the Mind
A full body Reiki healing can be the equivalent of a powerful meditation session. As the body becomes still and our awareness rests on it, the mind also slows down and the frequency of thoughts drops. If you find it hard to still the mind through other meditation practices, Reiki could help you achieve the same goal in a different way.
Reiki for the Soul
Reiki also helps us connect with the vastness of our soul and spirit. The spiritual aspect of Reiki is more subtle in nature and usually unfolds over a period of time. Reiki practice helps us see, feel and sense beyond the tangible world of the senses. It makes us aware of areas in our life that aren’t working. It inspires us to heal our soul wounds and to open our hearts. It trains us to become quiet enough to listen to the whispers of our inner voice. It helps us strengthen our connection to the Divine Light of our Higher Self. It supports our progress on a spiritual path that is best suited to our personal liking.
These are some of the amazing gifts that Reiki has to offer. As you practise, you will find that Reiki helps you carve out a unique path for your growth as an individual human being and soul. I hope you discover immense joy, beauty, growth and wisdom on your path!
