What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing therapy. It's based on the notion that all humans have energy fields or life forces, that keep us alive.

According to the practice, physical, mental, and emotional issues can occur if this energy is low or becomes blocked.

The purpose of Reiki is to promote good health by balancing these energy fields. It's carried out by your Reiki practitioner, who places their hands on or just above your body to redirect energy. Research has shown that Reiki helps with pain, anxiety, improves your mood and sense of well-being, and helps with depression.

Everyone's experience is different and magical - I recommend everyone to try it!

Like other spiritual practices, Reiki is based on a set of principles. These core concepts are similar to affirmations or intentions. By focusing on the present moment, they offer guidance for connecting with your Reiki energy, which may help boost your sense of well-being in various ways.

1. Just for today, I release angry thoughts
It's normal to feel angry sometimes. This emotion can be triggered by many scenarios, like dealing with a rude co-worker or getting cut off in traffic.

But according to Reiki, anger doesn't come from these outside events. Instead, it stems from angry energy already within you.

This principle aims to help you release this energy. It encourages you to recognize anger and to let it go, allowing you to invite happiness into your life.

2. Just for today, I release thoughts of worry
Many of us worry about things that haven't happened yet. And while it's easy to feel like that worry comes from an external source, Reiki maintains that it starts from within.

If you're holding on to worry energy, thinking about future events can produce negative emotions. However, if you're able to release this energy, you may have an easier time living in the present moment and worrying less about the future.

3. Just for today, I'm grateful
This is a reminder to express gratitude for all that you have. By slowing down and recognizing the good in your life, it may help you foster more positive energy.

4. Just for today, I expand my consciousness
In Reiki, actively practicing mindfulness is key to balancing your energy. This principle encourages you to recognize how you've been more conscious about appreciating the present moment.

5. Just for today, I'm gentle with all beings
This principle focuses on how being kind to others lets you receive positive energy in return. It includes being gentle with yourself, which is essential for spiritual health.
