ZEN TIP TUESDAY #28
I’m thrilled to welcome back Chelsey Prior to guest post for us for ZTT. This is Chelsey’s second ZTT post, her first being on ‘The Postively Life-Changing Power of Theta Healing‘. This time she shares with us the benefits of Reiki and also briefly explains what Reiki is, for those of us (yes including me) who were not quite sure what Reiki was. You can find out more about Chelsey and where to connect with her in her Bio at the end of this post.
If you would like to contribute your very own ‘Gem of Zen’ as part of the Zen Tip Tuesday series please go here to find out how (you might also like to visit all the Gems of Zen we have so far). I would love to hear from you!
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a form of natural healing originating from Japan. This modality uses universal life energy to reduce stress and harmonise the body, mind and spirit.
Anyone can receive Reiki. It does not fall under any belief system and can generally be used alongside medication and medical treatments. The most important factor in healing is simply the genuine desire to be healed.
Receiving a Reiki treatment, either with a trusted practitioner or through self-treatment, can help promote feelings of relaxation, reduce stress, improves and balances energy levels and promotes the body’s natural healing processes.
Practiced hands-on, hands-off (or just above the body if preferred) or by distance, removing energetic blocks and moving the flow of energy around the body and to areas that need healing.
Some practitioners may also use crystals, incense or essential oils to enhance the treatment.
- Improved quality of sleep.
- Reduced stress, anxiety and depression.
- Feeling light, clear, centred and grounded.
- Boost in the body’s natural healing process.
- Cleared blocks within energy centres (this will help to clear and improve limitations that originate from each energy centre).
- Increased awareness.
- Feelings of bliss.
- Increased creativity.
- Reduced fatigue and improved energy levels.
- Relief from pain.
- Balanced energy.
- Strengthened immune system.
- Holistic healing.
The creator of Reiki, Mikao Usui, passed on five principles to each of his students to allow students to embody beautiful Reiki energy everyday.
5 Reiki Principles to Live By
Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will be grateful.
Just for today, I will serve others.
Just for today, I will be kind to all living beings.
Embodying these principles one day at a time promotes mindfulness and living in the now. And living in the now is a direct path to the Zen state.
Happy Zen Tip Tuesday!
