How can Reiki Increase Your Self-Development?

A fundamental aspect of human existence is trying to develop and improve yourself; however, you can. Although you may have heard of Reiki, you might not recognize how you can boost your level of development with Reiki treatments.

Reiki: What is it?

Reiki is an ancestral art of healing first studied in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. The practice eventually expanded to the western world and was slightly modified into what is referred to as "Western Reiki" methods.

Here are some enlightening facts about Reiki:

1. Reiki incorporates 5-7 hand positions employed by Reiki practitioners.

These hand postures are used to influence the recipient's "chakras" or "meridians," areas of theoretical sacred energy supplies located throughout the body's surface. The healer poses his hands in the hand positions close to where the body's energies are regulated to support wellness and healing.

2. The Reiki practitioner might set his hands gently on the body at the chakra points. He might glance at the chakra point or even lightly massage the chakra area in hopes of transferring energy to the receiver. Light tapping on the meridians or the practitioner's exhaling air from the mouth can also be present in a Reiki treatment.

3. Some Reiki practitioners don't touch the receiver. Alternatively, they place their hands a few centimeters higher than the body's facade to re-position the chakras' energy.

4. The Reiki practitioner believes he's providing energy called, "ki," through his palms. This is to restore the receiver's body energies.

You'll definitely become more open to acting on healthy suggestions.

4. Taking part in Reiki can increase your feelings of well-being.

In this case, experiencing Reiki may be a means to an end.
