Sometimes Reiki practitioners want to know, “How can Reiki heal my relationship? What special practice do I need?”
From what I see with my students, we don’t need practices more special than simple hands-on daily self Reiki. I can’t make any promises, but here’s what’s shown up lately in my First degree Reiki classes, just in time for you to get ready for Valentine’s Day!
Relationships respond to Reiki practice
A wife returned home after the first session of her First degree Reiki class. We’d been talking about how Reiki practice is balancing, and self-practicing in class.
She walked into her kitchen to find her husband had left the burner on. Again. An (understandable) pet peeve of hers.
But this time, she didn’t fly into her usual tirade, or even feel angry. Her first response was compassion, thinking how hard he works, how tired and distracted he must have been.
Then she noticed the difference feeling balanced had made, enabling her to respond instead of react.
More Reiki love
A few weeks after his First degree training, another student reported how much his wife loves his new post-Reiki self. They both see that his Reiki self practice brings out the best in him, and it’s not just subtle. He started doing the dinner dishes and building shelves in the office! Feeling balanced can boost your motivation.
At the second session of another First degree class, as she listened to other students sharing the differences they noticed in their first day practicing self-Reiki, a wife realized her spouse (also in the class) warmed their dinner instead of waiting for her to do it — a first!
The Reiki students in the above stories noticed how feeling balanced made them more present in the moment, more aware of themselves and others, more motivated, and more benevolent. They saw the direct connection between how they felt and the state of their relationships.
Can Reiki heal my relationship?
Are you still wondering, “Can Reiki help my relationship?” There’s one way to find out. And it’s not to make your spouse or partner get Reiki treatment.
Start practicing daily self-Reiki and see what improvement you notice in how you are feeling and functioning, and how you feel about yourself. It typically doesn’t take long to notice gentle, positive shifts, but give it a week or two.
Or find a practitioner to offer you Reiki treatment only (choose carefully!), no advice or psychic reading. Notice how your relationship improves when you’re balanced and more in touch with your heart.
Reiki practice helps you experience the love in your heart. Take the time to do that, and someone else just might notice.
Every relationship is strengthened by healthy, compassionate boundaries. Learn simple, effective skills for holding your own in BLESSED BOUNDARIES.
