Reiki helps restore your emotional well-being by raising your vibration. Reiki may not stop you from having negative emotions. Instead, Reiki shines the light into the darkness and helps you have greater understanding of yourself and your feelings.
The Reiki ideal “Just for today, do not anger”, could be interpreted to say do not be angry. I don’t think this is the true meaning of that Reiki ideal. I just don’t think that’s humanly possible, nor healthy to never experience anger.
Rather, the Reiki invites you to be present and in the moment. Reiki helps you move through emotions and understand the underlying causes of them. Reiki is love, a very amplified love.
Reiki helps shift your perceptions about negative emotions to restore emotional well-being.
Emotions are just guide posts. Sadness, anger, frustration, and hopelessness just let you know that you’re believing thoughts that disconnect you from your inner Source.
Emotions are energy. Feelings remind you that you’re alive. It can be thrilling to move through emotions and move up the emotional scale. To go from sad to hopeful can be thrilling. Just to feel the energy lightening up can be exhilarating.
I don’t believe any energy is negative. What people refer to as negative energy or emotions, I describe as “unwanted” because when you’re ready to let it go it becomes unwanted. Or you are experiencing an energy or feeling you don’t want to feel.
Anger or sadness can feel just fine in the moment when you’re feeling that way. Only when you are ready to return to your state of connection and center do those feelings become uncomfortable and unwanted.
How Reiki helps restore emotional well-being:
- Helps you be present with and move through your emotions.
- Comforts you and fill you with love, reminding you it’s okay to feel how you feel.
- Brings clarity to the underlying thoughts that cause the unwanted feelings in the first place.
- Keeps the energy flowing. Only when emotions become stuck do they turn into health problems.
- Restores your awareness of your connection with your inner Source.
Start by giving yourself Reiki over your heart and your head or your heart and belly. Then move to any other place the body is holding the emotion.
Be thankful that you feel! Your feelings really do help guide you.
