5 Signs That You Need to Try Reiki Cleansing

Reiki is an energy healing modality that works by moving and cleansing the energy in your body’s chakra system. By cleansing and re-circulating your energy, you’re essentially doing a reboot of your emotional, physical, and spiritual health.

If you’re new to Reiki, don’t worry. It’s a gentle process that makes you feel loved and clear. It often works over the course of a week or month after the session to help you see the choices that are best for you.

Because most of us didn’t grow up with Reiki or knowledge of the chakra system, it’s understandable that we don’t recognize the signs that it’s time to get a Reiki session. Often after we go through something stressful, it can help us to recover our energy because when we are stressed it uses up a lot of our life force energy or prana. Here are some of the things you may be experiencing that are indicators that it’s time to try Reiki cleansing.

1. You Feel Tired All the Time

Burnout can come from being energetically drained due to overwork or too much stress. It can also come from taking on other people’s energy - intentionally or otherwise. If you are around other people a lot during the week, you may be taking on the energy of their emotions, which can mess with your energetic equilibrium. If the people around you are carrying pain, anxiety, or negativity in general, it can leave you feeling drained and depleted.

Reiki can help in all of those situations. Regardless of why you’re lethargic, Reiki offers a breath of fresh air into your energetic ecosystem to wake you up again.

2. You Have Chronic Pain

If you suffer from a chronic pain disorder or if you’ve had an injury, the pain can be prolonged or worsened by energy blocks. Whether you’re suffering from an old injury, a new injury, or a full-blown chronic pain condition, Reiki healing can help ease some of the symptoms. Reiki harmonizes the energy inside and outside of your body that can allow you to live with more positive emotions which always positively affect your health. A certified Reiki Practitioner can target specific areas where energetic blocks are causing pain while also introducing new cleansing energy into your system.

3. You Feel Overwhelmed with Emotion

If you feel like your throat is tight, you’re constantly on the verge of crying, you’re overreacting, or not in control of your emotions, you could just be holding too much emotional energy in your body - and it might not even be yours. Let Reiki’s natural healing energy balance your emotional state so you don’t have to feel like you’re on a roller coaster. Reiki is great for those of you who define as HSPs - highly sensitive people. There’s nothing wrong with having strong emotions, but reiki healing allows you to stay in control of yourself.

4. You’re Experiencing Brain Fog

If you feel like your brain is working slower than usual, you feel generally confused or unclear on what to do, Reiki can certainly help. Emotional disturbances can actually impose on our ability to think clearly, and that’s exactly what Reiki is for. You’ll find that you feel your brain turn back on after a Reiki session. It may be that something in your decision-making is causing toxicity in your body, and the Reiki will help you see that decision isn’t good for you.

5. You Feel Depressed

If you feel sad, lonely, antisocial, hopeless, or any negative emotion that doesn’t seem to go away, Reiki can help you. Negative emotions like to hang out in and block up our chakras, and a good Reiki practitioner will intuitively pick up on the strongest emotions that need to be cleared so you can get an aura-wash that leaves you feeling shiny and clear of the heaviness you felt beforehand.

Concluding Thoughts…

Although Reiki on its own is a powerful healing tool, always see your doctor if you’re experiencing prolonged mental or physical pain. Reiki is meant to be used in conjunction with, not as a replacement for, medical attention.

After a Reiki session, you may feel strong emotions for the next few days as you release and go through an emotional detox. If you feel the need to rest, make time for it. Also, drink extra water to help cleanse yourself of the stress hormones and give your body a good healing environment. During Reiki healing sessions, some people feel physical sensations like pressure, tingling, or muscle twitches, even if the practitioner’s hands are not directly touching the body. You won’t always be able to feel energy, but when you do, it’s never painful.

If you’re new to Reiki, we recommend seeing a certified Reiki Practitioner for your first session. But Reiki is something you can learn to do yourself, for yourself! Reiki is possibly one of the most cost-effective ways to help yourself heal, especially if you learn it for yourself. You don’t have to be gifted spiritually to use or receive Reiki; everyone has prana in their bodies and we respond to it intuitively and often subconsciously.
