Reiki for kids

Holistic medicine helps integrate body, mind, spirit and emotion — the keys to balanced healing.

by Josephine M. Joseph —

Reiki is a Japanese word that translates to universal life force. A hands-on healing modality, Reiki has received recognition from medical practitioners, such as Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Andrew Weil, and is practiced globally.

Holistic medicine helps integrate body, mind, spirit and emotion — the keys to balanced healing. Self-esteem is a component in the development of a child. Reiki confirms the connection to a universal power by giving kids the confidence, faith and belief in what lies within. A healthy foundation, based on a universal source, encourages risk-taking to manifest dreams.

Development of self-esteem is borne out of knowing that we are not just a personality; we are spiritual in nature. There is no age limit on the desire to feel good about ourselves and how to share the gifts we have in the life we create.

Reiki increases the amount of energy we channel and is noninvasive and gentle, like a mother’s touch. It acts as a portal into the heart, deepening the connection to universal power. Reiki instills the feeling of a loving presence in and around the body, providing a safety net during fast-paced, changing times.

Guiding a child is being open to all possibilities, while providing a secure environment in which to grow. Because children are affected by the world around them, Reiki provides an inner sanctuary in which to surrender emotions that may arise from the pressures of society.

Connecting to a greater purpose of being through spiritual unity allows deeper understanding and compassion to develop early in life. Reiki is a simple, positive and supportive influence for any age.

Through a simple attunement process, a child can develop a greater sense of confidence and trust, while having a resource of energy in which to continually self-heal and alleviate the fear of separateness.
