Using Reiki to Heal Yourself

Reiki ShareThank you so much for taking the time to read my blog!  Comments are very welcome and would be much appreciated!

When I created this website, I added the blog, unsure of whether I would actually use it.  I figured if not, I could always get rid of it.  But then, I decided that maybe I should keep it!  Blogs are a great way to share information and to allow everyone reading my website to have a chance to get to know a little about me, my knowledge, and how I feel about a wide variety of topics.

Of course, it only makes sense that my first blog post is about using Reiki to heal yourself – even when a Reiki practitioner is involved, you are still using Reiki to heal yourself.  Reiki practitioners such as myself simply act as channels to send the Reiki energy your way, so that you are able to benefit from it as much as possible.

Now…this brings up the question…if you’re healing yourself, why do you need a Reiki practitioner in the first place, right?

In order to channel Reiki, a person must be attuned to Reiki energy by a Reiki Master/Teacher such as myself.  This attunement is required to channel Reiki energy, and without it, you will not be able to heal yourself.  Using a Reiki practitioner allows you to sit back, relax, and let someone else focus the energy on your body, so you can focus on healing and not have to worry about anything else.  Receiving Reiki treatments from a practitioner, whether this is in person or via distance, is very effective for both emotional and physical healing.

If you would like to practice Reiki on yourself without having a Reiki practitioner involved, you can absolutely do this by completing a Reiki Level I course and receiving the appropriate attunement, either in person or via distance.  I offer courses in Reiki in my shop, but I’m not writing this post as a sales pitch.  I want you to understand the many ways that Reiki can benefit you in your daily life!

I practice Reiki on myself every day, at least once.  I try for once in the morning and once in the evening, but that doesn’t always happen!  Reiki in the evening helps me feel relaxed and get to sleep, while my morning sessions with myself help me feel energized for the day ahead.  Sometimes, depending on the day and what’s going on, I’ll sneak in an afternoon session as a little pick-me-up.  It’s great!

Last weekend, I had a nasty cold – I increased my Reiki treatments and meditation for a couple of days, and felt better by Monday night.  People I work with who also came down with the cold are still struggling with it, an hour later.  The healing power of Reiki helped me shorten the duration of my cold, and, had my colleagues been open to receiving Reiki healing, it could have helped them as well!

Whenever I’m feeling depressed, stressed, angry, or frustrated, I practice Reiki on myself, to help me feel better.  While this doesn’t always work on the first try, there’s something about it that is calming and soothing, and I highly recommend practicing Reiki on yourself in difficult situations as much as possible, if you have been attuned to any level of Reiki energy.

If I’ve got a deadline coming up, an important event, or something else I feel could use a little extra help, I channel Reiki energy into that situation/time/whatever it is to help it go well, and I’ve had some pretty good success with this!

Reiki is so powerful, and can improve your life so much!  If you’re reading this, I hope that you’re on board the Reiki train, so to speak, and I would love to hear from you about any experiences you’ve had with Reiki!

Love and Light,
