REIKI FOR PAIN RELIEF | Everything we experience physically starts on an energetic level long before it manifests in a way that can be detected by our aesthetic senses. Reiki Therapy targets the energy body (astral body) and can create shifts there that provide some relief for what is being experienced physically.
Stress comes from a variety of sources—some more subtle than others. Either way, when our stress reaches an unhealthy level or we experience some form of trauma, we usually cope by unconsciously holding tension somewhere in the body.
Tension restricts blood flow and oxygen throughout the body and can lead to lymph stagnation which suppresses the immune system in many ways (i.e. inflammation, pain, swelling, redness, skin eruptions, mucus overproduction, edema, and “anything-itis”).
Reiki promotes deep relaxation and greater self-awareness, which opens the way for your body to heal itself.
Remember, Reiki flows to all levels of being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. So, I suggest that my clients be open to the healing that is occurring in all 4 domains, and not to only focus on the physical and forget the other 3.
That said, lifestyle changes are important following Reiki Therapy. Identify sources of stress in your life, take a look at your relationship with yourself (your inner dialogue, self-care, etc.), your relationship with food and money, and your relationships with other people. Be aware of your feelings and behaviors without judgment.
Set a healthy intention for yourself and see how you can start thinking, speaking, and acting in alignment with that. Keep it simple; 1 step at a time.
For example, if you want optimum health, make sure your choices reflect that in a way that is authentic to you. Be intentional about how you see yourself, what you eat, who you surround yourself with, how you spend your time and energy, what you watch and listen to, etc.
Reiki opens the way to healing. But, it’s our actions that determine long-term results thereafter.
