Healing Hands

Posted on May 19, 2012

It seems like more and more people are taking their health into their own hands and an interest in self-care is growing. Maybe it’s the result of an increase in positive media coverage regarding the benefits of integrative therapies, or the rising cost of Western medicine, the unwelcome side-effects of allopathic approaches, or the economic environment. Or maybe a combination.

It’s one of the many reasons I was initially drawn to Reiki. Reiki is such an easy way to take care of yourself. It’s easy to learn and practice and you literally have the ability to heal yourself with your own hands 24/7.

Why is it so easy? You can practice Reiki self-treatment in bed as you’re falling asleep or waking up, or even on the subway (my personal favorite–what can I say, I like to multi-task).

In Reiki I you’ll learn and experience:

•    Reiki history and precepts
•    Spiritual healing principles
•    Guided-imagery meditations
•    4 attunements
•    Reiki self-treatment and a basic chair protocol to use with friends/family

You’ll be able to practice Reiki on yourself after just the first class.

Practicing Reiki can be both a path and a way of being. Continuing to practice Reiki self-treatment consistently, every day, over a period of time, is how you really come to understand Reiki, and to reap the greatest benefits such as:
•    Improved wellness
•    Balanced emotions
•    Disease prevention
•    An enhanced sense of meaning in life.

You’ll have this healing practice for the rest of your life and it can become a significant source of inner support.

Try This

After you finish taking Reiki I, I ask students to practice Reiki self-treatment for 21 days, noticing any changes in your life and way of being.

Many experts say it takes 21 days to create a new habit or behavior.

What’s one new positive habit you’d like to make? Pick something and  do it every day for 21 days (and feel free to let me know what happens!).
