What Are the Mental Health Benefits of Reiki?

Our fast-paced world can at times leave us feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. Taking time out for a Reiki session provides a healing balm for frazzled feelings.

While mental health counseling is a mostly linear process; Reiki is a complementary, non-linear, process. Every Reiki session begins with an invocation to our angels and guides to provide the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical healing we need not only in the present lifetime, but past and future lifetimes as well.

During a Reiki session life’s frenetic pace slows down, and the mind ceases its chatter. Each Reiki session is unique, but it is common for clients to report seeing flashes of light, swirling colors or images, feeling sensations of warmth, coolness, and energy moving through the body, having dreams, visions and out-of-body experiences, and sensing the presence of angels and guides.

Taking an hour out of your busy schedule for a Reiki session is an exercise in loving self-care. The session will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and calm with the ability to tackle life’s demands from a more centered and peaceful place.

Reiki and the Emotions

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy medicine. “Rei” means Sprit, and “Ki” means Life Force Energy. Thus, Reiki is Spirit-guided Life Force Energy. Reiki is a holistic hands-on healing modality transmitted through the hands of the practitioner from Divine Source.

Reiki energy is soothing, and creates a deep sense of peacefulness and emotional well being.

A Reiki session begins with an invocation for Reiki energy to flow through the practitioner, and for healing to occur for the client on all levels and in all dimensions. Angels of light are requested to surround the space to provide protection and cleansing, and to raise the frequency of the Reiki energy to its highest vibration of love. 

The client's most loving and healing angels and guides are invited to assist in the healing session and work with h the practitioner's team of light.

Reiki provides a peaceful antidote to the feelings of stress, anxiety and depression suffered by many Light Workers during this time of transition and ascension.
