How to cope with depression using Reiki
First and foremost, let us understand depression. It is important to note that it is not a defect or a personality problem.
Very often people think that if they’re unwell, the only solution is consulting a doctor. Humans always find temporary solutions, which don’t work and makes a person feel even worse. In worst case scenarios, they make someone feel like failures because they are unable to control their lives and situations.
Depression vs. Reiki
Spirituality is important for dealing with depression. Studying Reiki provides the spirituality one needs. Most people who suffer from depression often need therapies to find hidden or past issues. Reiki can help them find it.
How can Reiki help?
By helping one reconnect with their heart and realigning with their higher self.
Reiki allows you to let go of anger and past pains and traumas. As we mentioned earlier, it provides a "sense of well-being" and the sense of purpose that most people miss in their lives. Reiki has the ability to tap on healthy flowing energy. This is a gentle reminder of who they are and how they can be healthy and joyful irrespective of their past. With more clarity, you start feeling more at ease.
Reiki does affect you physically
During a session, you will start to feel calmer and be able to take full, deep and easy breaths. Your muscles will start to release tension, the heart rate becomes moderate and adrenals will be put at ease. This sets a sense of calmness despite all the struggles.
How long does it take for Reiki to work?
Everyone’s different and their needs are different.
Many people benefit from their first Reiki treatment, while others work through deeper issues. They may need multiple therapy sessions to clear out past blockages. There will be a treatment plan, but it will be worth it.
It is important to know that you are not alone in the universe. This realisation alone can relax the mind!
