I have discussed various aspects of Reiki and how it can help. I want to delve deeper into how Reiki can help on different aspects of a person*.
Reiki is a holistic therapy. This means that Reiki works on all four levels of our being – this healing energy can impact you on a spiritual, emotional, mental and physical level. In order to find balance, wholeness and fulfilment in our lives, we need to heal, develop and integrate all four of these human life aspects within ourselves and Reiki can be a way to help with this.
You can complete a quick assessment of the four levels of being to help you identify particular areas of focus to begin with.
Our Spiritual aspect is our inner essence, the part of us which exists beyond time and space. It connects us with the universal source.
Developing our awareness of the spiritual level of our being allows to experience a feeling of belonging in the Universe, a deeper meaning and purpose in our lives, and take a broader perspective than we have from our personality alone.
On a spiritual level, Reiki can help you to love and accept yourself. To have self-compassion and compassion for others. It can help you to feel that you are a part of something larger. For me, Reiki is like coming home. I feel present, connected, loved, and I know that I am a part of this large thing called “the Universe”.
The emotional level is our ability to experience life deeply, to relate to one another and the world on a ‘feeling’ level.
It’s a part of us that seeks meaningful contact and connection with others. Developing the emotional level of our being allows us to feel the full range of the human experience and find fulfilment in our relationships with ourselves and each other.
On an emotional level, Reiki can help you get in touch with the depths of your emotions. Reiki can help you cultivate more positive emotions, such as love, compassion, kindness, connection, sharing and intimacy.
The mental aspect of our human existence includes our intellect, our ability to think and reason. It consists of our thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and values. Our minds can be our greatest gifts, and at times, our greatest downfall. It can cause us terrible confusion or bring us profound understanding.
Developing the mental level of our being allows us to think clearly, remain open-minded, yet discriminate intelligently. Our minds enable us to gather knowledge and wisdom from our life experiences and from the world around us.
On a mental level, Reiki energy can help you to witness your thoughts and become aware of certain patterns within your thoughts. Once you become aware of these thoughts and patterns you have the power to consciously decide if these thoughts are helping you, and if not, you have the power to change them- so it is not only about positive thinking, but having the understanding and focus to change should you want.
The physical aspect is our physical body. It also includes our ability to survive and thrive in the material world.
Developing the physical level of our being involves learning to take good care of our bodies, and to enjoy them. It also means developing the skills to live comfortably and effectively in the world.
On a physical level, Reiki supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself, helping to release blockages, toxins, and relieve pain. Once in touch with the healing natural energy, Reiki can also help make better choices by helping you to become more aware and in tune with your body’s needs.
