The Healing Power of Reiki

by Shaylini of The Sacred Self

Reiki is a wonderful and powerful healing method with its roots in Japanese origin.

Reiki is the beautiful life energy that flows through all living things. A person’s ki or energy should be strong and free-flowing, when this is the case a person is physically, mentally, and emotionally balanced and their body and mind are in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

Through personal experience I have found Reiki to be a powerful healing method which serves to align and balance you in a beautiful, natural, gentle and non-invasive way. Receiving Reiki healing is a deeply relaxing and peaceful experience, which will leave you feeling balanced and rejuvenated. Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all stress, tension, anxiety, fear and negative emotions to reach a state of health, peace and well-being.

Reiki holds many wonderful benefits and its healing energy works on many different levels and dimensions. Primarily, Reiki works on all four levels of our being:

  • Mental
  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual



Reiki naturally brings you into a state of deep relaxation, promoting grounding, balance and a release of stress, anxieties and tension. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity. It allows you to let go of negative thoughts, patterns, behaviours and attitudes, replacing them with positivity, peace and serenity.


Reiki can help heal emotional wounds and enhances your capability to love, enabling your relationships to grow and flourish. Reiki provides you with an insight in to your emotional response to life events, allowing you to let go of negative emotions and replace them with feelings of love, care and trust. Reiki also provides great relief during emotional distress, sorrow and grieving.


Reiki stems from Divine origins and promotes the qualities of love, understanding, acceptance and guides you on your path towards spiritual growth and development. It helps you to love and accept your whole self and to have compassion for both yourself and others. Reiki brings about the realisation that you are part of something magnificent and greater where each individual is not just a human being, but a soul that is connected with all others.


Reiki supports and accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal itself, helping to release blockages, alleviate pain and relieve any other symptoms. It is wonderful for all types of physical ailments, from migraines and digestive disorders to arthritis, diabetes, bodily pain and even pregnancy. Reiki helps you to get in touch with your body’s natural healing energy which assists you to become more in tune with your body and to develop a greater awareness of your body’s needs.Reiki energy works on the body, mind and spirit as a whole. It balances the emotions, brings clarity to the mind, stimulates spiritual growth and reconnects us to our true selves. This in turn enhances both our physical and overall well-being enhancing every aspect of our lives, bringing our Sacred Self back to its natural state of peace and balance.
