Healing Touch

All human beings have the healing touch. Anybody and everybody are innately born with the power to heal. You may find this difficult to believe, but we all have the ability to heal others as well as ourselves. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to learn; the right intention to help others including yourself; and a healthy belief in your capacity to heal.

Notice how babies who are constantly held by their mothers or fathers are calmer and more peaceful than babies who are left on their own all day long? Do you remember bumping your head or falling down and hurting your knee and Mom suddenly came to the rescue with a bag of ice to ease the swelling while she rubbed your back or gently touched your head while asking if you're okay? I always believed that more than the bag of ice, it was her motherly concern, love and her healing touch that made me feel better and took the pain away.

The healing touch is not a magic trick or a super power that one is specially gifted with or acquired through radiation or nuclear wastes like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You don't need to be able to leap over tall buildings, fly through the air, have a special leather outfit or a spiffy cape to have the healing touch.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art that anybody can learn through a one day attunement with a Reiki Master. Through an attunement, your chakras or energy centers which constitute your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self are opened up to receive the divine universal energy, or God energy, making you a vessel to heal others as well as yourself.

Reiki's healing touch is gentle, non-invasive and 100% safe. In certain cases, the receiver may not even need to be touched and this does not diminish the effectiveness of the treatment. Benefits from the healing touch of reiki are:
  • relaxes and balances the receiver on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level
  • eliminates stress, anxiety and psychological issues
  • cleanses and releases energy blockages, negative thoughts and emotions
  • raises the body's immune system
  • regenerates damaged cells and tissues
  • energizes and gives the receiver a renewed sense of well-being
If done on a regular basis, reiki can assist the body in fighting off as well as eliminate even the most serious of diseases.

You don't need any background in healing or a medical degree to be a reiki practitioner. People from all walks of life, from professionals to students to housewives, are reiki healers. All you need is an open mind, a gracious heart and a desire to help others.

Remember, since the universal chi or Divine healing energy passes through you while you are treating a person, you yourself benefit from the healing as well. The more you practice reiki and make it a part of your life, you will find yourself becoming a clearer, more grounded and more balanced person in body, in thought and in spirit.
