Can Reiki Help You?

We are all looking for solutions for what hurts us, for our specific pain, whether it is life circumstances or symptoms and medical problems. And it doesn’t help that we often suffer from not just one, but many problems, which may or may not seem related, causing us to feel frustrated, depleted, overwhelmed, without hope.

And you wonder, Can Reiki healing help me?
It all starts with feeling better

Yes, Reiki healing can help you, and here’s why.

Even if we can’t solve all your problems with a magic wand (or hand) — and we cannot — wouldn’t it help you to simply feel better?

Feeling better means you think clearly, recognize priorities, feel motivated to do what you can do — and let go of the rest. (Or as the Reiki Precepts advise: Today only.)

We often devalue feeling better, as if it were an optional luxury. But feeling better is where healing begins. The first, most important step in healing is simply feeling better.

When you feel better, you understand that your actions matter, and you make choices to protect your well-being. Feeling better is the domino that starts a chain of healing events and behaviors.

Addressing isolated symptoms is not enough to help you feel better, and pharmaceutical approaches to symptoms and conditions can actually make you feel worse, even when they are helping.

To feel better, you need to step back from the details and bring balance to your overall system.

Reiki healing is balancing

Reiki healing quickly returns you to your natural state, or at least gets your body moving in the right direction.

That means your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure improve (studies document that). An opening of the breath is a common first response to Reiki practice, whether self-practice or treatment received from someone else. Yogis have known for the millenia that when we breath better, our minds naturally settle. Science supports that.

The improvements in respiration, heart rate and blood pressure indicate your body is moving into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance. That’s a good thing; your body was made to function primarily in the composed PNS state, also known as the rest/digest phase, the counterpart to the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) fight/flight phase.

Why balance matters

Rest/digest doesn’t mean you have to stop being active and productive.

Yes, you will sleep better and digest better — functions critical to maintaining health. But when you’re not sleeping or digesting, you can be active and productive without being stressed.

Under PNS dominance, your body functions optimally, and at a sustainable pace, so you can avoid exhaustion and burnout. It’s like working for a benevolent boss who brings out the best in you and trusts you to take breaks as needed.

Most of us are reacting to a very different, and rather nasty inner boss, one who tells us to run life’s marathon at a sprinter’s pace. We’re smart enough to know that doesn’t make any sense, and informed enough to know it is actually harmful, yet we don’t stop.

In fact, we don’t know how to stop.

We spend so much time in stress-reactive SNS mode that our bodies literally forget how to switch gears and return to balance. Meanwhile, the damage piles up. We may choose healthful food, but we don’t digest it well enough to get the nourishment our cells crave. We fall into bed exhausted, but don’t get the deeply restorative sleep our bodies and minds so desperately need.

And we wonder why we’re not as happy and healthy as we want to be, why we lack a sense of meaning. Enter Reiki practice.

Helping the body remember to heal

Through a mechanism science does not yet understand, Reiki practice reminds our bodies how to shift into PNS self-healing mode. That’s very good news for anyone, no matter what challenges you face.

Because no matter what you have to deal with — even a health condition that is deemed irreversible — keeping your body balanced helps you feel better and function better, which in turn keeps you feeling better. It’s a positive feedback loop.

Of course we can never promise specific results in a rigid time frame — balance requires different self-adjustment for different people at different times — but it all starts with breathing, sleeping, and digesting better (medical science tells us that 70% of our immune system is in our digestive tract).

Here are the most common benefits -

Improved sleep
Improved digestion
Less anxiety
Less pain
Improved focus and memory
Improvement in depressive symptoms
Reduced side effects from medications and medical procedures
Faster recovery from injuries and surgery
Mood stabilization
Enhanced resilience to stress
Improved self esteem
Greater social ease and satisfaction
Greater sense of meaning.

Reiki healing improves your health care

Additionally, many people wanting to reduce medications of various kinds were able to do so, under the supervision of their doctors.

Some of the people who felt improvement with Reiki practice also become aware of other avenues of help that improved the situation further.

If you seem stuck in the diagnostic phase, Reiki practice can help by clarifying the situation, so needed medical treatment can begin sooner.

When medical treatment is arduous and has side effects, Reiki practice helps your body recover balance, softening the discomfort and supporting the even, hopeful state of mind that helps you complete your protocols.

Whatever your medical challenge, Reiki practice can help you, and that help may make the difference in how much your medical care is able to help you.

Reiki may not be all that is needed, but it is a good place to start.
