Reiki appears woo woo because the energy is invisible, but the benefits are tangible.
Reiki is Universal Source energy that is gentle and healing. A reiki practitioner or master directs the energy around him or herself into a desired person, place, or thing. This is done in-person or during a distance session.
During a session, reiki energy relaxes the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, optic nerves, digestive system, and nerve endings) and circulates through the cells of the bones, blood, muscles, and skin. People tend to fall asleep and enter the dream state during a reiki session.
The longer the reiki session the more one will experience the following benefits.
- Relaxed mind and body.
- Reduced stress.
- Sharper mental focus.
- Stronger concentration.
- Better receptivity to intuition.
- Improved energy.
- Increased creativity.
- Better sleep.
- Increased natural ability to heal.
- Reduced pain.
Distance sessions can be scheduled when a person can sit or lie down without being disturbed. If not, it is best to spend the day of the reiki session being less busy than usual. The effects will be felt after falling asleep for the evening. The next morning will be met with better energy and focus.
An in-person or distance reiki session is a great incentive for having a lazy day because it induces peace of mind. Following that up by doing nothing or something fun increases the benefits of reiki.
