Reiki For Children

Children in our modern world are exposed to many stress factors that even adults often have difficulties to juggle. These stress factors include long hours of learning and following behavioral rules at school, pressure to be successful, not being allowed enough time to eat mindfully while at school, consuming highly processed foods, being exposed to polluted air, water and pesticide residues on food, and being exposed to electro-smog to name just a few. The resulting symptoms are quite similar to the ones developing in adults: disrupted sleep patterns, eating disorders, anger, depression, anxiety, general nervousness, diminished self-esteem, inhibited capacity to focus and learn, again to name just a few.

Reiki is a gentle way to restore and balance our children's energy levels, and thus teach them to relax and to be mindful about their subtle energy system from an early age on for them to benefit from all life long. When children receive Reiki, they simply relax and are willing to embrace with you this feeling of peacefulness that is generated. Reiki has a very calming effect, thus promoting relaxation and confidence. Children are able to unplug and get the time they need and deserve to tap into the Universal Life Energy.

Little babies can also get positive impacts of Reiki. It is helpful for soothing colics and for teething babies as the treatment will ease the pain. Usually children, babies, and teenagers enjoy Reiki because their bodies respond quickly to energy treatments.

Reiki Benefits for Children and Teenagers:

* provides a tool to cope with depression and anxiety
* improves concentration
* supports relaxation and sleep
* soothes pain and promotes recovery from injury, infections, and surgery
* calms and restores balance
* empowers self-esteem
* helps with conditions such as hay fever, asthma, and seizures

Reiki can be very helpful with attention deficiencies and hyperactivity.
Since Reiki works on all levels of the body - mental and emotional as well as physical - the body will be able to use the energy to find balance in its own way.

What is Reiki?

Reiki, originally developed and taught by Mikao Usui in Japan, is based on the concept of an universal life force, which flows in all living beings (and surrounds us as well known as the Self or the Divine or God or the one and only truth), and which we can access through prayer, attunements, alignment of our chakras, and then channel it onto others through our hands. The syllable "ki" means "life force", and it refers to nothing different but what is called "qi" or "chi" in other Asian, primarily the Chinese, traditions, the breath of God in the Christian teachings, and "prana" as known from yogic, and Ayurvedic philosophy.

Reiki is a simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is administered by "laying on hands". Reiki energy work is safe for pregnant women, seniors, children, and even babies. From thousands of individual experiences it is known to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and harmonize imbalances. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes depleted or blocked it comes to symptoms of physical dis-ease or emotional imbalance. The Reiki practitioner can channel universal life energy into the patient, or more precisely be the channel through which the patient draws energy in, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore harmony. For this reason Reiki works well combined with other medical or therapeutic methods to relieve side effects or promote recovery. Reiki works because it connects the universal life force energy with the body’s innate powers of healing.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn or use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent to belief at all and will work whether you believe it or not. The energy will always go where it is needed the most.
