As a refresher, Reiki is the practice of laying hands on or near another person to give them energy. It can help reduce stress and anxiety, by releasing tension from muscles and organs within the body. The word “Reiki” means Universal Life Energy – it comes from the universe!

Things we learned form reiki

1. You can’t get sick from receiving treatment!

One thing you cant get is getting sick from reiki. When you receive a treatment, you are putting your life force energy back into your body.

When you get treatment, the healer is not actually giving their own personal energy to you; they are channeling universal healing and sending it right back at you! You can’t get sick from receiving treatment, but you may feel very tired after a session.

You will know if the reiki is working for your body because many people have reported feeling heat or tingling during sessions! If this does not happen to you while getting Reiki, don’t worry- there are other ways it can help you!

You can also choose to receive treatment from someone who is not Reiki certified, but we definitely recommend that you go for the real deal.

It may cost more money and time than just going to your local massage therapist or acupuncturist, but it’s worth it because of all the benefits reiki has to offer!

You can also give yourself Reiki treatments. There are many ways to do this, including laying your hands on or near different parts of the body, having someone else use reiki for you, and visualizing reiki coming through you.

Either way is fine by us because it does not matter if you receive treatment from a Reiki practitioner, an Usui Reiki Master, or anyone else.

It is the energy that matters most! The only time you are not allowed to receive reiki sessions from someone who is not certified in your state is when you are pregnant due to safety reasons. This does NOT mean however those people cannot do their best to support you!

2. It’s not about healing, it’s about balancing the flow of energy in your body!

Reiki is not about healing in the sense that you will be completely cured of your depression or anxiety. It’s not like at the end of a session, everything about yourself has magically transformed into something better!

Reiki may help with these things but it does NOT heal all illnesses and diseases. What reiki does do is balance out whatever energy is wandering in your body.

Whether it’s too much or not enough, reiki can help restore balance to whatever flow of energy you have going on! If the energy in your body feels like it’s flowing very slowly, then Reiki can increase that flow and make things feel more uplifting for you.

On the other hand, if there is too much energy in your body, Reiki can help slow it down and make you feel more relaxed.

One of the most common things that people report feeling after their sessions is relaxation. You may come out of a session with heavy hands or feet because the reiki has made everything feel so weightless!

But if this doesn’t happen, don’t worry – there are other ways it can make you feel great!

Also, please do not think that if something is wrong with you then Reiki will automatically fix it. This blog post does NOT claim that reiki heals everything or anything like that. We also want to let everyone know that we’re not doctors and this isn’t medical advice, so please don’t think that it is.

3. The more you do it, the better you get at it!

Although it may be hard to believe, reiki gets better and easier the more you do it! What we mean by this is that although you might not feel anything or like how it makes your body feel at first, if you keep practicing then eventually something amazing will happen.

The energy in your chakras starts opening up bit by bit and you start to feel more at ease with the world!

Reiki starts working on your energy, so it’s important that you practice using reiki as much as possible. This way, whether or not someone is sending Reiki towards you, you will be able to send some out into the universe too!

Every time we use reiki, we feel more at peace with ourselves and the world. It’s just like yoga or meditation– you have to practice to get better at it!

Even though Reiki is known as a relaxing thing, there are many other benefits that go along with using Reiki too. The energy starts healing your body almost immediately because of how strong it is. But if you practice enough, then something even better will start to happen!

4. You can’t fake it – if you don’t feel anything then that means there isn’t any imbalance to heal !

There are many reasons why you might not feel anything during a reiki session. The first reason is that there may be no imbalance in your energy and so, nothing for Reiki to fix! If this happens then it means Reiki isn’t necessary for whatever issue you’re having because everything about yourself feels balanced right now… which we think is pretty great news!

Another reason you may not feel anything during a session is that there actually IS something wrong with you, but the reiki isn’t fixing it. Reiki can only go so far – if your body has too much energy or doesn’t have enough then it’s very hard for this kind of thing to be fixed in one session.

It’s important to remember that Reiki isn’t there to heal everything! It can help with many problems, but it also depends on how much you believe in the power of Reiki and how often you’re willing to practice this kind of thing.

As we said earlier – if something is wrong then no amount of Reiki will fix it. If that’s the case then you should go and see your doctor!

A great thing about Reiki is how simple it can be to use, which makes practicing a lot easier than normal methods of healing like meditation or yoga. You don’t have to do anything special – all you need is someone who knows what they’re doing.

5. There are different types of treatments for different issues – some people might need more than one type!

Reiki can be used to help with all kinds of problems. If you’re feeling really restless then the energy might focus on your head, chakras, or feet so that you can feel more grounded and relaxed! This is just one example – there are many different ways Reiki works depending on what’s wrong.

But if someone who isn’t very experienced is trying to use it, then there’s a chance they might not be able to focus on what you need.

This means that if someone wants to learn Reiki for their own personal benefit then the best thing would be to find an expert who knows how this kind of energy works and can help them figure out how reiki can help them.

Everyone is different, which means that their Reiki energy will be too! If someone doesn’t know what they’re doing then it might not work at all – there are simply no two energies alike in this world! But with the right person and enough practice, anything can happen…

6. If someone has an open wound or is very ill they should see a doctor first.

Reiki is all about well-being and helping you to feel better, but if someone has a serious injury then they should go straight to the doctor.

Reiki can’t fix everything in your body – sometimes it’s okay for these things not to be fixed! It also depends on how much energy we put into healing something because some people may not have enough Reiki to make it work.

Even if your loved one is in a lot of pain and you want to help them feel better then the best thing to do would be for both of you to go see a doctor together. Reiki can’t fix everything, but it definitely has its place when it comes to self-healing!

7. Reiki is a Japanese word that means “Universal Life Energy”

Reiki is a Japanese word that means “Universal Life Energy”. This kind of energy comes to us all the time – there isn’t really any beginning or end for it. It comforts you, heals you, and makes everything better when times are bad!

The other reason Reiki is called Universal Life Energy is that this kind of healing isn’t limited to any one group of people. It doesn’t matter whether you’re religious or not – Reiki will still work for everyone!

There are different kinds of energy that come from this Universal Life Energy. Some energies might focus on your head, while others might want to help with an injury in another part of your body. There’s really no limit to what Reiki can do and it’s important that we remember that!

This is just one part of the many amazing things you learn about when you start studying Reiki. There are so many different ways this kind of energy works – but only if someone has enough experience with it will they be able to tell how best to help you!

8. The energy flows from the hands to the receiver and can be used for healing or relaxation.

When someone is using Reiki then they’re sending Universal Life Energy into your body. This energy flows straight from the hands of the person who’s doing it and brings with it all kinds of amazing things!

It can heal you, soothe you, or just make everything better in general…it depends on how much energy we put into healing you and how well we know what to do.

The other use for this Reiki energy is that it can be used as a way of calming someone down or helping them feel relaxed, which just goes to show the many different ways in which Universal Life Energy works! It’s all about treating you exactly the right way so that everything feels better.

9. There are three levels of training in Reiki – Introductory, Practitioner, and Master/Teacher.

When someone is learning Reiki there are three different levels of training. The first level, Introductory, teaches the basics about how to use this kind of Universal Life Energy and prepares you for what’s ahead…which is a lot!

It will help you learn more about yourself as well as give you some important tools that can be used at any time.

The next level, Practitioner, is where you’ll learn all about how to channel Reiki and the different kinds of energies that come with it. You’ll also be practicing on friends as well as complete strangers so that you can get used to what’s needed for this kind of healing! It takes a lot of practice but it’s worth it in the end.

the final level is Master/Teacher, which is where you’ll learn all of the techniques on how to use Reiki with people who who are are sick or injured.

You can also train other people on how how to to do everything that that you’ve learned so they too can help others!! This isn’t an easy easy path to follow but it is very rewarding!

The great thing about Reiki – and the reason so many people choose to learn this kind of healing – is that there’s no right or wrong way.

It all depends on what you do with Universal Life Energy as well as how much energy you put into helping others feel better!! You can approach things your own way and it will still work out just fine!

10. A session lasts for about an hour.

When you go to get a Reiki session, it’s important that you’re prepared for your healer. They’ll need lots of time with just the two of you so they can figure out what kind of energy needs to be used and how best to help.

You might not know this but all kinds of different energies are used in order to help you with your problems and it’s important that they know how to do their job!

A session is usually an hour-long, sometimes a little more or less depending on what we need. It all depends on the person in front of us and whether we’re able to help them feel better – which is something that takes lots of time and energy.

11. The effects of Reiki can last for weeks or even months, depending on the person and their goals.

One thing that’s really interesting about Universal Life Energy is how it works to help people feel better! Some people might be able to recover quickly while others will take longer – but either way there are lasting effects that aren’t always obvious right away.

For example, if someone is feeling anxious then Reiki might calm them down enough so that they can relax and won’t need to take medication or go back for more sessions…which means everything will be okay!

But this kind of healing works differently depending on the person in front of us as well as their issues which is why we need to take our time and do what’s best for them.

The effects of Reiki can last anywhere from a few weeks up to several months depending on the person and their goals! It all depends on how much they practice as well as whether or not they’re practicing regularly enough so that everything will work out just fine in the end.

12.It is common for reiki sessions to be uncomfortable.

Reiki can help you release your energy blocks in order to improve the way you feel emotionally and physically. During a session, people often experience discomfort because of this process.

It is possible that some emotional trauma will resurface when receiving reiki sessions which makes it important to have an open mind.

13. The process of receiving reiki is similar to psychotherapy sessions.

People who receive reiki experience both physical and emotional benefits.

Many people compare the process of receiving reiki with undergoing therapy, where you are encouraged to talk about your life in order for emotions to surface so they can be released during a session. Releasing these pent-up emotions is essential for people who wish to live a happier and healthier life.

14. Reiki sessions are very relaxing.

People often describe reiki as being extremely calming, especially during their first session. The feeling of relaxation that one experiences after the therapy last long into the day which makes it an excellent way to reduce stress levels in your everyday life.

15.Reiki sessions can help people experience greater self-awareness about their feelings and emotions.

When you are undergoing reiki, your practitioner will encourage you to express any thoughts or concerns that have recently come up in your life so they can be addressed during the session.

It is common for people who receive regular Reiki treatments to feel more self-aware about their feelings and emotions.

Reiki is a great way to reduce your stress levels and help you relax, especially during difficult situations in life. Reiki sessions can be done alone or with others as it makes people feel calm and relaxed before an important event such as giving birth, going into surgery for major medical procedures, etc.

16. A Reiki session can help you release tension, calm your mind, and nurture your soul

Some people don’t realize that Reiki is an ongoing practice, not just something you experience in a one-off session.

Reiki can be used to help with many different things; from physical pain and illness to emotional issues like depression or anxiety.

It’s important that if you do want to try out Reiki for yourself, make sure the practitioner has plenty of experience, and that you feel comfortable with them.

17. Reiki is not a replacement for medical help or proper medication if your symptoms are severe.

Reiki is complimentary, not replaceable. It should be used in addition to medical help.

Reiki can be offered alongside other types of treatment, to help you recover faster and cope better with life’s challenges.

So what have we learned from Reiki? Well the practice itself has given us a lot more knowledge about our own health and wellness, along with many helpful tips

One of the most important things to remember about Reiki is that it’s not something you need to keep up indefinitely; once you’ve received some initial sessions, there might be times when you want to go back for another session or two, but that’s up to you.

18. The power of the mind is stronger than most people think.

Reiki is a powerful practice that can help you release your stress and tension, but it’s always best to combine this with meditation. Meditation has been scientifically proven to have emotional benefits which means that together, they work even better.

It really does prove just how much influence the mind can have over our bodies; being able to consciously control your own health and wellness is a powerful thing.

Reiki can help you with your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being so it’s definitely something worth looking into if you feel like you could benefit from some more relaxation in your life!

20. It takes time to learn how to do Reiki on yourself, but it’s worth it because you are able to heal your own pain.

The process of learning how to do Reiki on yourself is like the practice of mindfulness. The more you sit with your pain and focus on it, the closer you will get to understanding where that feeling lives in your body and mind.

This self-awareness helps a ton when someone else does a hands-on session with you because they can direct the energy to that specific location.

You don’t need any special equipment or expensive tools – just your hands and some space for meditation and breathing.

You can do Reiki while taking a walk, surfing the waves at sunset, camping in the woods with friends, reading a book on yoga philosophy while sitting under an oak tree… you get it! The possibilities are endless!

Things We Learned from Reiki

22. Healing energy flows more easily when there are no distractions in the room.

Healing energy flows like water flow in a stream, so it prefers to travel in natural ways.

Healing energy flows more easily when there are no distractions in the room and can get obstructed by objects or people. It’s best to be alone, free of any thoughts that could potentially block your focus on healing yourself.

One thing I like about reiki is that you don’t need to be in a perfectly quiet space. A lot of reiki sessions take place outside or near water which also helps with healing energies flowing more easily.

23.You can do self-healing with others present, but you may want them sitting on the other side of the room so they aren’t absorbing your energy too much

Your energy healer should be able to tell you whether or not your energy is too strong for them. If you become too much for them to handle, they’ll let you know!

It’s important that the room is comfortable and warm because it helps with relaxing. This makes sure your energy flows properly and fully heals you.

When they sit on the other side of the room, they won’t be absorbing your energy as much.

Your healer will tell you whether or not the room is too crowded for them to heal you properly, and if so then ask that people leave!
