Reiki Can Revitalize Body, Mind & Spirit
When we talk about working with the healing power of Reiki, we really need to treat ourselves in our totality: body, emotions, mind and spirit. Remember, the body is a self-healing organism. Reiki practitioners and other healing practitioners merely provide assistance in the healing process. Therefore, Reiki does NOT cure dis-ease, but assists the client in their own healing process.
If you’re wondering how emotions can impact a person’s health and well being, think of a time when you were so worried about something that you were “sick to your stomach” with fear. Or a time when you were so angry that you “saw red.”
Emotions have a direct impact on our health. Fear, anger and depression can sap our bodies’ energies. Being angry can drive up blood pressure. Being fearful can weaken one’s kidneys. Being angry can even affect how well one’s liver functions.
Our state of mind also impacts our health in direct and not-so-direct ways. Creative visualization can translate into miraculous healing. On the other hand, some people take what their doctors say so much to heart that they will die, right on schedule (as in the cases of “terminally ill” patients with only one, three or six months left to live). Some individuals refuse to take such dire predictions seriously and continue to live years beyond their predicted demises. (Read Louise L. Hay’s books, You Can Heal Your Life and The Power is Within You).
Reiki supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself and can help revitalize body, emotions, mind and spirit. By balancing the body’s energies, Reiki can re-establish spiritual equilibrium and mental well-being, and allow for a state of total relaxation.
