Reiki is a Japanese technique for reducing stress and increasing relaxation in order to promote whole body healing. We can immediately feel results on our nervous system as well as long term perspective changes. Reiki is an amazing technique that, with practice, anyone can learn and use to improve energy level. It is a great way to improve the mind-body connection and bring more energy into our lives.
What is Reiki and Reiki Healing?
Reiki has been around since the beginning of time, but has been passed down as an energy healing practice and modality by reiki master Mikao Usui since the early 1900s. Usui began to teach Reiki healing to students, using methods that focus on achieving a connection with universal life force energy. The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words. Rei means "Higher Power" and Ki means "life force energy''. So Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki healing works by allowing energy to flow unobstructed through the body, as the practitioner focuses attention and intention on the parts of the body drawing it most. Trained Reiki practitioners can easily tap into the universal life force, acting as a conduit between the receiver and the healing energy. Reiki practitioners are attuned by reiki masters to receive these energy healing techniques.
Receiving reiki, either for practice or for self-healing, is a wonderful experience. Once this healing energy has resonated through us, we become more in tune with our sense of being. Focus, happiness, energy, and manifestation ability can greatly improve once we are more aligned energetically. To create a routine or practice around manifestation, try the Manifest Now Altyr Toolkit.
What to Expect from Reiki Sessions
Reiki sessions will usually take place in a space optimized for energy flow. This may include soft music, incense, and any energy charged items of the practitioner’s choosing. The recipient lies fully clothed on a massage table or sits comfortably in a chair. The practitioner will begin the energy flow by placing their hands on or above different energy points, moving energy through the body to different chakras and energy centers. Practitioners will use 12 to 15 hand positions during the course of the session, and will check with the recipient on whether they prefer to be lightly touched during the process or not.
A reiki session will usually last about an hour. During the session, we may feel a number of sensations in different parts of the body. Warmth, coolness or tingling energy where the practitioner places their hands is common. Those more experienced with Reiki may notice waves, pulsations, or dreamlike states, while a first-timer may notice less or delayed effects.
Where to Find Reiki Healing Near Me
Due to the increasing popularity of Reiki and energy healing, it has become easier to experience a reiki session. However, it is important that your practitioner be attuned and Reiki certified. Our ALYTR practitioners are trained and experienced, offering restorative Reiki healing sessions to first-timers and those who have received before.
ALTYR practitioners can perform a reiki session both in-person and virtually. The first part of the session will be a brief discussion between practitioner and recipient to identify any boundaries, preferences, or specific issues that need addressing. Once the energy healing session begins, the recipient must only lay and receive the reiki energy.
Reiki is a great way to rejuvenate, refresh, and re-energize ourselves, as well as offering a number of other benefits to our body, mind, and life perspectives. Working with a trained reiki professional can help balance our energy so that we can lead more productive lives. The practice is based around the channeling and rechanneling of universal life force energy, something we all have in common. By strengthening that connection, we can all feel that life force stronger within us.
