In today’s day and age, it’s becoming increasingly more common to find people who are more in tune with the energies around them. We find more people who are in tune with the vibes around them and they can often feel when something is not right within their body and mind. When we find these energy blockages, it’s important to realign balance our energies so that we may focus on healing. One popular and effective way to realign our energies is through the incredible benefits of Reiki, an energy healing practice that originates from Japan. Join us at Laterra Gems as we break down the wondrous benefits of Reiki and how you can use it to rebalance your energies.
What Is Reiki?
Reiki, as we mentioned, is an alternative healing practice that originated in Japan in the 1800s. In short, Reiki is a form of energy therapy that has been used to treat numerous conditions and emotional states. Because of this, Reiki has become increasingly popular in holistic therapy practices including some hospitals. Reiki which comes from the Japanese words meaning “universal” and “life energy” focuses on unblocking stagnant energy within the body that has become so due to physical injuries or emotional difficulties.
How Do You Practice Reiki
Reiki is traditionally practiced in a quiet environment where the patient sits or lays down. Sometimes, depending on the patient’s preference there can be relaxing music in the background. The Practitioner who performs the energy healing then stands over the patient, placing their hands above different areas of the body which need healing.
If the patient has pain points from an injury the practitioner will focus on these areas, but there are so many different areas of the body (twenty in fact) where energy can become blocked.
Using Crystals and Gemstones in Reiki
Oftentimes, healing crystals and gemstones can be used in energy healings like Reiki. Reiki and gemstones go hand in hand because both the energy healing and gemstones emphasize centering, clearing, extracting harmful energies, and soothing the aura to remove negative energies and blockages from the body. There are numerous healing crystals that you can choose to use during your therapy session, the choice is up to you!
What Are the Benefits of Participating in Reiki?
Because Reiki is not a western therapy practice, it is often discarded by skeptics and those who discount anything that is not Western medicine. Yet despite this, millions of Americans practice Reiki or some form of energy healing.
When you practice Reiki, you help the energy that is in and around your body flow and find balance. This can help many who are living with anxiety, depression, and many other emotional states. Like meditation, Reiki helps you move away from the noisy waves at the surface of your mind and move into the deep, quiet, and calming part of your body where the healing happens.
