This simple, non-religious method of healing, focuses on treating the whole person and is inclusive to all. It’s a simple and gentle way of enabling your energy to rebalance by promoting general well-being.
The daily stresses of life affect our mind, body and spirit, which lead to energy blockages. Reiki treats the whole body rather than a specific symptom or area and works to bring us back into balance and reinforce the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
A meditation within itself, Reiki simply creates awareness of yourself in the present moment, it suspends your ego, helping you to notice where your mind and energy goes.
It’s an important gift to yourself since it goes beyond relaxation of the body to touch the core awareness of who you are, creating a healthy and healing balance in your life.
From the moment we are born, we are taught and conditioned by those around us to believe and behave in certain ways and over time this can lead to us losing connection with who and what we are.
Reiki will not change your life’s story, but it does change the way in which you look and view your life, giving you the clarity to move forward with self-love. And while you can’t stop some thoughts and feelings, you can stop feeding or giving them your full attention - especially where fear and control play a big part.
Reiki will help you to develop your own methods, using your intuition to except the past and create a new path to wellbeing. You will learn to stop inviting habitual thoughts in and to release what is no longer serving your inner-peace – an important investment in yourself and your future.
When you are quiet you’ll notice that your mind wanders. Before you know it, you’ve been thinking about what to eat for dinner for the last few moments without even realising it. If you get frustrated when this happens or if you beat yourself up, you’ll create more distress. Instead, it’s important to gently return your awareness back to your anchor (your breath), with the warmest compassion you can give to yourself. This is part of the process of meditation.
Eckhart Tolle writings say that being present is natural and actually easy when you bring your attention to what it feels like inside of your body. Even if you don’t feel anything remarkable going on inside of you, when you bring your attention to the “aliveness” and sensations you feel within your legs, arms, and torso, you’ll become more present, and your mental chatter will begin to quiet down.
