Reiki and the Cycle of Life


Reiki is best when used as an assisting therapy.

What this means is:

  • It is used alongside other forms of therapy, including medical treatments, to help your body to heal faster.
  • It is used to help someone work through something that has happened or is happening in their lives. This doesn’t have to be a medical or physical trauma, but it can also be an emotional or spiritual area of their lives.

This is also means that Reiki Therapy can be used to assist us as we deal with every day events that occur during the cycle of life and death. This is what I wish to discuss here.

During pregnancy, Reiki can be used to help alleviate some of the symptoms and discomfort the mother feels while carrying her child. Reiki can also be sent to the foetus to encourage strong natural growth inside the womb.

During child birth and labour there is a lot of increased energy around the baby and the mother. This comes from the actual birthing process as well as the increase of people around both the mother and child. This includes family, friends and medical professionals. This increase in energy can actually help make the birthing process quicker and easier which is a very good thing. However afterwards there are still a lot of residual high frequency energies. Reiki helps to calm and realign these energies around the new mother and baby. It also helps their bodies to heal faster from the physical trauma they had endured.

Reiki can be used to help both the parents and the child over the next couple of months and years to help assist moving through a new development that happens in their lives.

This includes helping with any separation anxiety, for example when a new mother has to leave her young baby for the first time to return back to work, or on a first day at school.

The teenage years will then follow childhood. This is where Reiki Therapy can become very beneficial. It helps to assist children through the hormone changes and imbalances that will occur and will also help them to personally understand where they are in their lives and what they are going through. It can also help assist in coping with learning difficulties, for example ADD, or lack of focus and concentration in school work, and any general stresses the teenager may be going through.

Once having reached adulthood, Reiki Therapy can help during any big changes that may occur. For example, working through studies and trying to decide what one wishes to do with their lives, any big changes in jobs, relationships and family lives. Reiki assists with mental and physical stress and fatigue.

Reiki on a regular basis will balance your energies and help you work though day to day stresses, as well as bigger life stresses. It will help you to clear your mind and body, and move forward to where you feel you need to be.

Reiki Therapy can play a very important role in someone’s life where death is involved.

Unlike birth, during death there seems to be a general need for people to be calm and quiet around a person who is dying, but just like birth, quite often a person requires a lot of energy in order to assist in the process of passing on.

Reiki therapy helps to aid a dying person, or animal, with any pain and discomfort they are experiencing, especially with a long term disease, and it allows them to draw on enough energy so that when they are ready they are able to pass over.

For those who are left behind, Reiki Therapy can help with the grieving process. It assists in dealing with all the stages one goes through during grieving (five stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Sorrow, Acceptance), and allows one to find acceptance in death, and peace within themselves.
