Reiki- Japanese Art of Healing
Reiki Level 1
I was lucky enough to receive my first attunement while in the Philippines at White Space Mind and Body Wellness Studio in Metro Manila.
What exactly is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a natural healing method administered by "laying on hands" to channel energy to another person through chakras or energy centers helping to cleanse negative energies from the body and mind. Reiki treats the whole person- body, emotions, mind and spirit- and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Being truly healthy entails more than eating healthy and exercising. More importantly, we must have a balanced state of mind and emotions. Negative emotions such as jealousy, anger, worry, fear, guilt, and withholding of love, weaken our energy. When held for a long time, these manifest as illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, heart attacks, depression, and so on. It is important to heal from within.
Reiki and other holistic approaches to wellness, such as aromatherapy, art therapy, and meditation are gaining acceptance among doctors. Believe it or not, a bit of a Reiki revolution seems to be taking place. Our planet is undergoing a huge shift in consciousness. Hospitals are starting to offer Reiki to their patients as this and other alternative practices are beginning to grow. In addition, health insurance programs are now looking at Reiki as a possible insurance benefit. The future for holistic health is looking bright!
