How Reiki Helps With Grief

Reiki is is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is given by the “laying of hands” that has been practiced for thousands of years. In fact, the basis for modern-day Reiki may have started in Tibet more than 2,500 years ago. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words. The word “Rei” means higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness.  The word “Ki” means life energy.  Life energy plays an important role in everything we do. Reiki harnesses that life energy to promote healing, relaxation and a sense of calm.

Grief affects you physically, so it’s important to understand what is happening and why. A body needs energy to be healthy. Energy from food, energy from exercise and energy from being outside in nature. Grief however is an energy-depleting emotion. When the energy paths of the body are blocked or disturbed, the result can be illness, weakness, and pain. You begin to feel awful. If you don’t do anything to replenish the energy being removed from your body, over time you feel worse and worse. Reiki balances and strengthens the flow of energy within the body, which may decrease pain, ease muscle tension, improve sleep, and generally enhance the body’s ability to heal itself. Reiki activates or enhances your natural healing processes. It also provides you with physical, emotional and spiritual benefits by balancing your energy.  This is why it is so helpful to practice self-Reiki when you are grieving.

Self-Reiki When Grieving

Practicing Self-Reiki When You Are Grieving

Tags : 

 

Practicing self-Reiki really helped me when I was grieving the deaths of my loved ones.  I truly believe it really helped to keep me in better health during those times . Do I have any way to scientifically prove it? Not really other than I felt calmer, slept better and didn’t get sick during those two very difficult periods in my life. Maybe that is proof enough self-Reiki worked for me.

SELF-REIKI AT HOME

So how did I do it? First of all, I got myself into a routine. Having a routine made it second nature. I didn’t have to make myself remember. It just happened. This makes it a no-brainer when you are grieving and can barely remember what day it is. I just made sure I practiced self-Reiki every morning when I was in the shower. It only took 5 – 10 minutes. I used one particular symbol and drew it in the air from my head to my feet. I then drew the symbol to cover my whole body. I finished up by giving thanks for the beautiful day ahead. Over time, it became a matter of habit. This helped me to start my days in a better place both emotionally and physically.

SELF-REIKI AT WORK

Once I got to work however, it became another story. I don’t know about you but it is really tough to work when you are grieving. I couldn’t focus. I couldn’t concentrate. I felt like crying for no reason. I also seemed to be on a very short fuse. Most employers don’t give much bereavement time. In fact, if it’s a friend who has died, you really don’t get any bereavement time at all. So I went to work and tried to get through the day but the grief was always with me.

During those moments when it hit the hardest, I would go into my office and close the door. I would place my right hand over my heart and my left hand over my stomach. I would take a few deep breaths. I would send myself Reiki to stay calm and balanced. If I couldn’t escape completely, I would at least try to walk outside for 5 minutes. Just being in the fresh air can relax and rejuvenate you. Both of these techniques kept me from falling apart at work when I couldn’t get through the day.

Again, practicing self-Reiki didn’t take all my sadness away when I was grieving but it did help me find a place of peace within myself. This place of peace helped me to move forward on my grief journey one step-at-a-time.

Grief Reiki® Circles

Tags : 

WHAT:

Grief Reiki® Circles provide an integrated approach to grief and loss using Reiki and other spirituality-based techniques.

They offer an alternative to the traditional Grief Support Group.

Sessions are informal so comfortable clothing is suggested.

WHO:

All are welcome but Grief Reiki® Circles are especially for those who are grieving a loss of any kind and those interested in learning more about Reiki.

No previous Reiki experience is needed to attend.

WHY:

Receiving Reiki when we are grieving helps us to take better care of ourselves physically, spiritually and emotionally. It’s not a coincidence that the symptoms associated with grieving and the benefits of Reiki almost match each other one-for-one. Reiki energy knows right where to go to balance and heal.

Receiving Reiki when we are grieving helps us to take better care of ourselves physically, spiritually and emotionally. Being physically balanced and more relaxed when we are grieving helps us to find a sense of calm. It helps us to think more clearly. It helps us sleep better.

Reiki doesn’t magically take the sadness associated with grief away, but it does make it easier for us to deal with grief’s ups and downs. Having a sense of calm and balance helps to give us the courage and stamina we need to tackle our journey through grief.

TOPICS:

Topics will vary by Circle and include:

-What To Expect When You Are Grieving

-Reiki Basics

-Forgiveness

-Self-Care, etc.
