Reiki Benefits

“When a mind has only light it knows only light. Its own radiance shines all around it, and extends out into the darkness of other minds, transforming them into majesty.”

In its purest form, Reiki recognizes the sacredness and interconnectedness of ones true self and all of life, thus awakening one’s true potential. It will change anything that needs to be changed within the physical and etheric organism, as long as these changes are aligned with the soul’s highest good. Since we are all connected to each other, we have an effect on all those with whom we come in contact. This is especially so when we consciously connect with another transmitting Reiki. Reiki passes from the practitioner to the receiver, working on many levels. It brings all aspects of the receiver’s beingTaproot Healing Institute - Meditation into harmonious balance, according to their individual intention. You can use Reiki to help yourself, and others, to achieve a deeper sense of well-being while aspiring to achieve enlightenment.

The concept of healing is to make whole and that is what we do with Reiki; we work toward becoming whole. To become whole we need to integrate the different aspects of ourselves to get them to work together to help "the whole" function for its highest benefit. So when we discuss the benefits of Reiki and we state that it is good for this or good for that, this is going to depend upon one major factor, you. What is it that you need to make you more whole? Your needs are unique and therefore the benefits that you will receive from working with Reiki will also be unique.

Our mind and body knows how to heal itself. Yes, you are born with the natural ability to heal yourself! As the Reiki energy in your body moves and cleanses, it supports your natural healing ability. The system of Reiki supports that innate healing process. One of the most fundamental concepts of healing is that our bodies draw on Reiki to balance the flow of subtle energies by releasing blockages and suppressed feelings. Reiki does NOT diagnose, all you need to know is that whatever is receiving the Reiki will draw on, or release the energy as needed. If the rational mind gets in the way by diagnosing, you limit the healing possibilities of spiritual energy.

Reiki is guided by the God-consciousness, it can never do harm. Reiki knows what a person needs and will adjust to create the appropriate effect. Your body decides what it needs and when. For this reason, no two Reiki experiences are alike. Therefore, when you work with Reiki you do not know what is going to happen. Accept this and allow the energy to support your natural healing process. The benefits will become apparent. Your body will decide what it needs to become whole. Because the practitioner is not doing the healing, it is also much easier for the ego to stay out of the way and allow the presence of God to shine clearly through.

Because it is a channeled healing, the Reiki practitioner's energies are never depleted. In fact, the Reiki consciousness considers both practitioner and client to be in need of healing, so both receive treatment. Because of this, giving a treatment always increases one's energy and leaves one surrounded with loving feelings of well-being. Below are listed some of the possible benefits of Reiki to give you an idea as to how the energy can affect your life.
