Give yourself the gift of Reiki

As we come to the closing stages of 2020, we pose you this question: when was the last time you filled your own cup?

After a tumultuous year in so many ways, self-care has become more important than ever. Self-care encompasses anything you do to look after yourself and refresh your mind, body and spirit. When we practice regular self-care, we are able to give those around us the love and energy they crave. It is essential for finding a healthy balance in your life and is a powerful method of self-love.

It’s time to start classifying self-care as a priority in our lives rather than a luxury and fortunately, Reiki is the perfect way to do this! Read on as we share how giving yourself the gift of Reiki is the most beautiful form of self-care.

We often turn to self-Reiki when we’re feeling out of balance or disconnected in some way, shape or form. This could be feeling a spiritual disconnection, out of balance because of anxiety, stress or tiredness or even when you’re needing extra support after illness or an emotional experience. As our mind, body and spirit are wholeheartedly connected, self-Reiki can support us in shifting these negative energies and guide us towards clarity and harmony.

Begin by finding a comfortable position. Just like we encourage our clients, find a space that allows you to immerse yourself to total relaxation. For some, this could be laying down in a quiet space, for others, it could be sitting in their favourite serene space. Whatever feels most comfortable and uninterrupted to you.

You can choose whether you would like to listen to relaxing music or indulge in a moment of peace and quiet. This is your moment of self-care; there are no rules of how you prepare yourself for self-Reiki.

Begin your self-Reiki session, using the hand positions you have been taught. Thoughts will wander in and out of your mind and that is okay! Guide yourself back from the thoughts and intrusions and focus on the Reiki. This can be a difficult art to master but accepting that your mind will try and distract you is the first step to giving yourself over to the present moment.

Through self-Reiki, your central nervous system will begin to slow down, relax and guide you to healing physically, emotionally and spiritually. Finding this balance can lead you to discovering a life of less anxiety, exhaustion, more clarity and most powerfully, a greater connection and appreciation for yourself and those around you.

Our 21-day self-Reiki challenge is here to help you prioritise self-care. Beginning January 1st, 2021, we’re kicking off the new year with 21 days straight of giving back to ourselves and filling our own cups. Our challenge is not only here to welcome a more balanced version of you into the new year but create a powerful habit that you can carry throughout the remainder of the year and beyond.

We’re encouraging you to inspire others around you to learn more about the power of Reiki too! Download your 21-day challenge badge and share this as your profile picture throughout the challenge. Engage in conversation about your challenge and how Reiki is available to anyone.

As we know, completing Reiki Level One is the gateway to treating yourself with Reiki. For anyone wanting to get started with our challenge, visit the Reiki Australia website to learn how to get involved and start your journey with this incredible practice.

Creating powerful connections, despite the distance

In 2020, many of us have been separated to those we love by city, state or even country. We have found ways to feel connected to each other despite the distance and Reiki has been a major key. This month, we dive deep into Distance Reiki and how, despite physical separation, we can still support the health and well-being of one another. 

Using our distant healing (or absentee healing), Distance Reiki allows practitioners to send healing energy across time and space. Giving us the ability to heal from afar, Distance Reiki embraces the fact that we are all connected, despite any physical distance that is between us.

Distant Reiki can address any issues, just like our in-person practice.

From overcoming negative experiences, our mindset, trouble with sleeping or physical ailments, Distance Reiki allows anyone across the world to benefit from our healing abilities.

While a Distant Reiki session may be practiced in different ways according to the Reiki form and lineage, the intention and outcome are immensely powerful for the recipient.

During a Distance Reiki session, we recommend the receiver should dedicate time prior to their session just for them. And to Createa nurturing, comfortable and serene environment for their session. This may include switching off their devices, finding a comfortable place to lay and ready to accept their Distance Reiki session. With these pre-session rituals, it helps for preparing their body for the healing energy.

Like their pre-session rituals, it is best if the session can take place in an undisturbed environment. The experiences felt during Distance Reiki vary person to person and from treatment to treatment. Whilst some may feel waves of energy through warmth and tingling sensations, some may experience a sense of deep relaxation, peace, and clarity.

When sending Distance Reiki, we must remind ourselves that we are working for the higher good of the individual and to make positive choices through embracing the energy we send their way.

So, does Distance Reiki mean that we can send Reiki to anyone we like? Well, yes, we can, but it is important to seek permission by the recipient. When performing Distance Reiki to someone in a coma or experiencing illness, we are often guided by our intuition to decipher if our Reiki is welcomed, and permission can be asked as part of the process.

When deciding to learn Distance Reiki, it is important to choose a training facilitator that you feel a connection with. Do your research until you find a Master that feels right for you. Taught by celebrated Reiki Masters that lineages can be traced back to Dr Usui. First and Second level Reiki training is provided by Reiki Australia Masters throughout the year. Reiki Australia has a directory of Members for you to explore. First level of education allows you to facilitate Reiki on family, friends, animals, and yourself with further training available to enhance your journey into Second Degree and Further and into a Reiki practitioner.
