Reiki: A Spiritual Path

Reiki is a simple process that often creates profound effects in one’s life.  There are as many benefits to receiving Reiki as there are reasons why you might want to try Reiki for yourself, or even learn Reiki.  The main purpose of Reiki is to promote a positive mind and healthy body in order to experience peace and joy. 


Reiki does not promise a quick fix to end disease in the body.  Often, the body is the last place that illness manifests, and reconditioning the mind and spirit will take more than one or two sessions to correct.  It takes time to make necessary lifestyle changes that will bring our thinking and emotional patterns into a state of harmony with our body while maintaining a spiritual focus.  And it takes practice!


While many people seek Reiki sessions because of illness or chronic pain, others look to Reiki when they are experiencing other kinds of strains in their lives.  Reiki is ideal for when you are experiencing a major life transition such as the loss of a loved one, a career change, location change, or healing after a break up and more. 


Maybe you feel a void in your life or are constantly unsatisfied but can’t put your finger on exactly why that is.  Reiki provides a stage for allowing us to become centered with our Soul’s path.  With Reiki, we are able to look within ourselves to find the answers that we’re searching for to guide our journey.  Taking the time to listen to our own self, learning our natural rhythms and cycles naturally brings us closer to our divine guidance creating a meaningful and purpose driven life. 


Some people prefer to receive individual sessions and others decide they want to learn Reiki for themselves.  People often choose to learn Reiki to either begin or deepen their healing journey.  The beauty of Reiki is that it meets you where you are.  There are no prerequisites to begin, just the desire and commitment to learning while being open to experiencing your own true self.  Reiki is not just for healers, it’s for everyone regardless of their background, education, age, or anything else.


Some of the greatest benefits to learning Reiki are confidence, self-love, courage, clarity and increased intuition.  The journey of Reiki is one of self-empowerment as you learn to become accountable for your thoughts, feelings, body, relationships, and actions.  Through this process a genuine love for yourself, others, and the planet naturally develops.  As we continue through this process, clarity and wisdom arise from within, supporting and guiding us.  Intuition is something all of us have that has been largely unconscious.  With a greater capacity to love and hear our own wisdom with clarity, we are able to awaken and recognize our intuition.  With enhanced intuition, we reinforce our ability to create a richer and fuller life.


Regardless of why someone comes to Reiki, whether it’s for a physical ailment, a desire to de-stress and relax, or to begin a spiritual journey, there are so many positive benefits to both receiving and learning Reiki.  Take some time for yourself to be with yourself.
