What Is Reiki Healing Used For And What Are Its Benefits?

6-protection-techniques-with-reiki-part-1


To pass Reiki is to share unconditional love with humanity. It is to help someone achieve healing and well-being. We are here talking about the duties and desires of every Reikian. However, when we go through Reiki, we must keep in mind some fundamental steps so that we can heal the recipient and, at the same time, not get involved with the negative energy that is taken from it.

Our life is always busy. We have emotional ups and downs, tensions that destabilize our auric field and, consequently, our organism. This disharmony generates excess or lack of vital energy in our chakras and nodes (energy centers through which the strong force flows). Our thoughts and emotions highly influence these energy centers, and they also influence our thoughts and emotions.

When we go through Reiki, these energy centers come into alignment. The energy accumulated in the energy centers is dispersed, and the chakra’s lack of power is replenished. However, if we do not properly clean the patient and ourselves before going through Reiki, what we call catharsis may occur. Catharsis is a cleansing effect on the body. When excess negative energy accumulates in the chakras in conjunction with Reiki, the latter forces the negative energy outward. Side effects such as feeling sick, headache, dizziness, and vomiting occur.

There is yet another risk that occurs when the Reikian has not used protection for himself. The energy expended by the patient comes into contact with the Reikian, making the Reikian feel the same symptoms as the patient. For this not to happen, it is necessary that, before Reiki is passed, the Reikian uses some protection and cleaning techniques. Rest assured, as I will teach the three main ones that I use in my sessions.

What is Reiki Healing?



Reiki is a technique for channeling and transmitting vital energy through the laying on of hands, which is used to obtain peace and balance on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. That is to say: harmonize and balance the chakras of your body.

How does Reiki healing work?

Reiki at a distance is very similar to Reiki in person; it acts on the aura and chakras and removes energy blocks or imbalances at different levels. A distance healing is performed when the person requesting it, for various reasons, either health or not being able to move, is not present with a healer.

And if it works? What do you think? Yes! Remote Reiki is one of the therapies that do work without having to be present. It is important to remember that we are all more than a physical body. Everything is energy, even matter. Energy floods everything, and we are connected through different energy fields.

You can use Reiki to:

  • Release repressed emotions.
  • Increase our energy level, providing us with physical and emotional vitality.
  • It causes a very pleasant state of relaxation, reducing or eliminating anxiety.
  • Relieve physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual suffering.
  • Helps eliminate daily stress.
  • Relieve migraines, depression, menstrual cramps, and constipation.
  • Helps cleanse the body and mind of toxins.
  • Facilitates sleep.

With this method, we help our body be healthier, think calmer, and increase our vital energy.

The five principles of Reiki that we can all use:

  • Just for today, I won’t get mad
  • Just for today, I won’t worry
  • Just for today, I will be grateful
  • Just for today, I will do my job with honesty and integrity.
  • Just for today, I will be kind to all living things.

1. Use the symbols in the environment where you will apply Reiki



It is essential to prepare the environment, leaving it conducive so that the negative energy when going. If you do not have the symbols, you can use the violet energy technique. Concentrate for a few minutes and visualize violet energy penetrating the place, coming from above, transmuting all energy in the room. Ask for that energy to remain there, transmuting all qualified negative energy.

This is a great way to harmonize the environment and protect the place where Reiki is taking place.

2. Apply Reiki before sessions

Before each session, protect yourself. Use Reiki to harmonize your subtle fields and preserve your energy centers. In this way, you also increase your fine-tuning, making it easier for you to be the healing channel.

3. Do an energetic cleaning on the patient before applying Reiki

Before starting the session, place a glass of water nearby. If you want, you can also add a candle, crystals, and incense, thus symbolizing the four elements. Cup your hands in the patient’s auric field (the auric field is around the body, so you don’t necessarily need to touch the person), about 3 to 5 centimeters apart, starting at the top of the head and ending at the foot.

When you get to the feet, join hands by adding that energy. Approach the glass and place the energy in the water. So you remove the excess before giving Reiki to the patient, avoiding the catharsis effect. These techniques are for you to protect yourself, the patient, and the environment where you are. By always taking these precautions, you support complete care of your patient and without any side effects. After all, Reiki is unconditional love and healing for all beings.
