Reiki for self care

reiki for self-careDo you ever feel run down or overwhelmed. That you have a constant list of things to do? That you are simply going through the motions of life rather than actually enjoying it?

If so, Reiki can help you.

Reiki is a simple and effective way to bring you back to balance. After completing Reiki Level One you are able to treat yourself with Reiki.

Reiki is an excellent self care tool

What is self care? Self care is looking after yourself so you have energy for yourself and others.

Self care is essential for anyone wanting to lead
a balanced and healthy lifestyle

Reiki makes you feel more relaxed, energised and happier. It’s so simple, enjoyable and practical to apply. You don’t need any special tools or equipment, just yourself. You can practise Reiki anywhere and at any time.

Reiki as self care tool can be used in two ways:
1. When you need to gain extra balance in your life
2. To maintain good health and well being

Reiki is excellent for helping you to regain balance when you are feeling:

  • stressed, anxious or sad
  • tired
  • physically unwell
  • spiritually disconnected

After almost a decade of professional practice I haven’t met many people who are physically unwell yet feel brilliant emotionally, spiritually or mentally. Similarly I haven’t met many people who are feeling spiritually, mentally or emotionally unwell and who feel wonderfully physically. People like this do exist, but they are rare.

That’s because your mind, body, spirit and emotions are interconnected. If one aspect is out of balance the other aspects can be too.

A simple example would be if you had a headache. It may be due to lack of sleep and high stress levels. (It may also be due to poor posture, blocked sinuses, poor vision but I just chose stress as a simple example).

And here is where self Reiki can help.

During Reiki Level One you learn hand positions for treating yourself. After doing self Reiki your headache may clear. You may gain insight into why you have the headache.
Or you may have a cold, are feeling anxious about work, are experiencing a challenging life situation. Taking just 10 minutes out of your day to do Reiki on yourself is often enough to restore you to balance. Longer is always best for chronic or deep rooted conditions.

Reiki is not a cure for all dis -eases. Nor does Reiki replace conventional medicine, it compliments it. Our health doesn’t have to be perfect. Part of our human condition is to become ill, sometimes for long periods of time. We have a body that changes as we age.

Self Reiki is a gift that we can give ourselves during challenging health and life situations
Reiki is also an excellent way to maintain your health and wellbeing

I have been doing self Reiki each day since 2002.

I use Reiki to help restore me to balance and for on going self care. Practising Reiki daily makes me feel more centred and relaxed. People often comment that I look healthy and happy.

I truly believe it’s because I practise Reiki. I really don’t know where I would be without it!
