Reiki: simple is good
Reiki is a natural healing modality that relies on the healing intention of the practitioner for its effectiveness. It is a simple process that can be of great benefit to the individual’s overall health and wellness.
It does not require a lot of knowledge or practice to become adept at the process. In fact, it is an instinctual part of our being.
What’s the first reaction to stubbing a toe, bumping the head, or banging an elbow? We grab the inflicted area, hold it, and focus healing to the spot. Often the comment “I’ll be alright in a minute” becomes part of the healing intention.
What do we do when a child gets hurt? We place our hands on the hurt and ensure the child that “we are going to make it better”.
Other animals respond in a similar fashion. They bring a focus and intention of healing to the damaged area.
Reiki simply helps to facilitate what our system is doing naturally. It is beautifully simple yet amazingly effective.
Something that is simple to do, sadly, is also simple not to do. To achieve these benefits we need to actually practice as much as possible. There is no need to wait for an injury or illness. Self healing with Reiki should be an important part of our daily routine.
Do not let the simplicity of Reiki scare you away. Unfortunately our cultural experience has taught us many mistaken ideas. It is often suggested that something that is simple is somehow of lesser value. That is not the case with natural law. Most of the superb processes of nature are perpetual, automatic, and requiring little effort.
We are completely connected to this natural order. Using Reiki to aid our personal healing and helping others with their healing is simply a wonderful benefit of our creative self.
