Reiki for Spiritual Growth and Renewal
Just as the sunlight allows new flowers to come to the surface, Reiki coaxes growth for mind, body, and soul. Reiki can renew the mind and help us to grow the seeds for new ideas. Reiki also can prepare our way for self-discovery.
Reiki Clears the Way for New Experiences
Before we plant flowers, we need to clear away the old dried leaves from last autumn and the brown straggly weeds that we may not have pulled last summer. This creates an inviting open space to plant all that we want.
Sometimes we may embark on a new project only to have it thwarted by old, limiting beliefs or old memories about ourselves or our capabilities. During a Reiki session, these beliefs or memories might rise to the surface so that we can become aware of them. Then we can work with them in our own way if desired, and then let them go. This allows for a nurturing space where we can move forward in our new projects or goals. If we’re feeling a lack of energy or we think something is holding us back from progressing to where we want to go, then Reiki can help us to see that obstacle. Obstacles are like precious stones because they allow us to learn about ourselves.
After a Reiki session, a client might say something like: “During the session, I had a memory of my birthday party when I was ten and my best friend couldn’t be there.” Or a client might say, “I suddenly remembered my former boyfriend from years ago.” Memories and feelings may rise to the surface from our subconscious so that we can consciously become aware of them. Then we can see if they relate in any way to what is happening in our current life situations. Becoming aware is a good idea since we can then move forward more easily without being burdened with feelings from the past.
Reiki Nurtures the Soul to Help with Spiritual Growth
Reiki is a great nurturer for all aspects of us: mind, body, and soul. Sometimes we don’t take the time to nurture ourselves enough. Sometimes we might do for others so much that it’s hard to move forward with our own dreams. We need to nurture the seeds of our dreams. Finding the time seems to be a challenge for many.
Sometimes our lives are full and yet finding one or two things in our calendar to re-arrange or even let go of, can make a great space for us to nurture our dreams. We can create the space to focus on what we really want in the here-and-now. Even if we just start out by finding a space in our calendar to schedule a Reiki session, the Reiki treatment session becomes a very special event because we know that specific time is just for us.

We may already know what flowers we want to plant, and an uncluttered space will give them room to grow. Once the space is cleared, we can then set our intention for our dreams to be manifested.
Reiki also can help us to find that next step. For instance, during a Reiki session, we might receive:
- an idea for a new job,
- a hint about a new lifestyle,
- or clarity about a long-standing situation.
When this happens, we’re on the path to new spiritual growth.
Reiki is energy from Source, flowing in for our greater good and in this “sunlight” we can grow our dreams, intentions, and the self-confidence to move forward into a life we want to co-create.
