Wow, I am really impressed by pop singer Christina Aguilera. She credits Reiki for helping her lose weight and she receives a Reiki treatment 3x/week. Good for her! As someone who feels that EVERYONE can benefit from Reiki, it’s wonderful to see that the practice is becoming more and more mainstream.
I have added this badge to my Reiki page thanks to Pamela Miles of ReikiMedicine.org. I’m not sure if many people know that you can Reiki yourself. You can send Reiki to yourself immediately after being attuned to the very first level of Reiki. What a gift and a life changing experience! It’s empowering to be able to help yourself physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally with a natural, loving, healing energy that has no side effects.
Angie Webster at Reiki Rays has written a short and sweet article about using Reiki on a regular basis as preventative medicine.
“By regularly rebalancing the system, we prevent or prolong the onset of disease. And keeping a more peaceful state of mind may actually help to prevent injury by reducing tense muscles. Working more effectively with difficult situations lessens mental and emotional strain, as well as the physical problems associated with them.
Many illnesses are shown to be caused or contributed to by high stress levels. According the WebMD website, stress has been shown to worsen or increase risks with obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, and depression. It contributes to headaches, aging and even premature death.
Stress builds up in most everyone’s life as we go through our daily activities. Many people are overworked. Society promotes staying busy all the time and little value is put into rest and stillness. Without regularly releasing this in a healthy manner and creating new balance, we damage our bodies from the energetic level down to the physical level.”
