Many people believe that Reiki is for adults only. The amazing healing energy of Reiki is for everyone: infants, toddlers, teenagers, young adults, the elderly, our pets, wildlife and pretty much every living thing on this planet. In fact, children, young adults and animals actually receive Reiki energy better than most because they are not thinking about the outcome and what it really is, they are just receiving all the positive, balanced energy that it provides to them during and after the session. The feedback that I have recieved from children and animals is so innocent, loving, positive and truly heartwarming.
Reiki is a calming practice that can benefit children by promoting relaxation, increased focus and self-confidence. In fact, studies have shown that adding Reiki energy sessions at a young age promotes a healthier way of living and a more positive outlook throughout their lives. Regular Reiki sessions help children and young adults make better choices and create balance in all areas of their lives.
Many parents are choosing the use and implement Reiki energy sessions to help their children focus on, address and recover from many issues and stress in their lives.
Our children are dealing with anxieties, fears, peer pressures, sports demand as well as educational standards that are high in today’s society, it is a hard way to grow up and often children feel stressed, overwhelmed and often have a short fuse with loved ones and friends. They should have a balanced body, mind and feel more relaxed taking tests or participating in school or after school activities. Reiki can help with balancing energy and bring a sense of calm, it can remove stuck emotions, depression and anxiety.
So many childhood illnesses are on the rise, such as ear and respiratory infections, childhood asthma, stomach issues and type 2 adult onset diabetes, back and neck conditions from computers and cell phone use. Poor diet, increased stress and lack of exercise is also a common problem in children today. Children are living a more sedentary lifestyle due to the increase in technical devices and video games, which keep them sitting and looking down for long periods of time with less outdoor play and fun. Being outdoors, laughing and having fun is an absolute MUST for the child’s spirit! I still get outside, laugh and breath in the fresh air, if I don’t, I just do not feel my best!
Reiki has been getting great reviews as an additional treatment of Autism, child disabilities, ADD/ADHD, inattentiveness, irritability, emotional issues, hyperactivity, anger issues and defiance in children. Reiki is balancing, it can be of benefit and can provide soothing moments for parents too, parents often stay in the room and feel the calming effects as well and as a result have scheduled appointments for themselves too.
Reiki treatments are safe and non-invasive. Reiki energy works on all levels of the body, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The body will use the Reiki energy to find balance within and adjust to the needs of the recipient. Reiki energy will always flow where it is needed most.
The Reiki Practitioner can simply be in the same room with a child without actually touching or even being close to the child. I have often spent the initial time of a Reiki session with a child, playing, talking, coloring, just letting the child guide the session until they become more comfortable with me and the Reiki energy in the room. As the energy flows and sessions progress, then changes can be made on how the child receives the Reiki energy.
