Reiki explained: Reiki benefits and FAQ

My arms hurt like hell a few years back. So bad, I could barely bend them without wincing in agony. I had double tendonitis in both elbows, most likely caused by hours spent every day on my computer sitting in some weird, cramped-up position. I tried copper cuffs, healing balms, special exercises and all kinds of everything but the pain wouldn’t quit.

Then I discovered Reiki. Within a few weeks of treatments, the pain was absolutely gone. And it has never come back.

Since then, I’ve used Reiki to help:

  • Heal painful areas and injuries
  • Release emotional and spiritual blocks
  • Balance chakras
  • Fall asleep and sleep better in general
  • Energize and purify my home, yard, neighborhood and city
  • Nurture my backyard plants
  • Bless my car, computer, motorcycle and other inanimate objects to perform at their best
  • Calm down my dogs when they’re fearful or hyperactive
  • Relax and soothe myself and others on the physical, mental and spiritual levels

Anyone can receive Reiki from a certified practitioner. And anyone can become a Reiki practitioner by going through at least one Reiki attunement that certifies them to give Reiki to themselves and others

You need no special training, beliefs, shoe size, hair color or zip code. All you need is an honest desire and intent to serve as a channel for healing energy that’s powerful enough to change the world (no kidding!).

Reiki explained

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing method where divine energy is channeled through the practitioner (me) and into you. Because Reiki is intelligent energy, it automatically goes where it needs to go and does what it needs to do without any prompting.

Sure, I can focus Reiki on a certain area and ask for healing in that area, and Reiki may be polite enough to consider it. But it’s still going to do what it KNOWS to do on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

What does Reiki feel like?

It depends. Every session is different and every person is different. So it can feel like:

  • A giant rush of energy
  • A hot healing glow
  • A soothing slither of calmness
  • Absolutely nothing

Some people feel nothing with Reiki, but that doesn’t mean it’s not working. It just means it’s working at a deeper level not immediately apparent to us humans here on earth.

What to expect from a Reiki session:

Even though each person’s response to Reiki may be different, most feel very relaxed and soothed after a session. The typical session length is one hour, during which you’ll be lying on your back, fully clothed. The Reiki practitioner will hold her hands above or on different areas of your body as she channels the Reiki into you.

Traditional Reiki hand positions involve placing the hands on or above each of your seven chakras, as well as your feet and other areas you wish to target.

Although Reiki will go where it’s needed no matter where the practitioner puts her hands, placing the hands in certain areas can help those particular areas relax and open up for Reiki to function at its optimum capacity. Hands can also be placed in specific areas that are painful or in need of extra TLC.

What about group Reiki or a Reiki distance healing session?

In a group Reiki session, the practitioner can channel energy into each person in the entire group at once, as well as the entire room (and beyond).

During a Reiki distance healing session, the practitioner can channel energy across the world – or even the universe. Reiki can travel across both time and space, which means it can be sent into the past to help heal childhood trauma or into the future to ensure an upcoming challenge or situation is blessed in advance with divine energy.
