Reiki and Children
Giving Reiki treatment to a child has a very different feel from giving Reiki to an adult. Children have less of a past, do not have years of conditioning and are more open to accept something which is explained simply and reasonably. The energy body of a healthy child is more attuned to the physical body and Reiki is a perfect way to begin helping our children, children are pure love and very open to receiving the Reiki energy. There are many people who believe that Reiki is only for adults. However, the fact is that Reiki is for everyone: infants, toddlers, teenagers, young people, elderly, plants, animals and almost every living thing. In this stressful era, many parents are learning the use and implementation of Reiki to help their children to focus, relax and recover from any sort of problems.
Reiki and Infants
These days, short term Reiki sessions are introduced in ICUs of hospitals for the children under supervision of machines and ventilators. Reiki can help these little patients to get relaxation to become better from the stressful condition. Reiki can also help to soothe fuzzy babies having colic issues or anything else. It can be done easily on babies by holding them or letting it flow on the required area. Reiki energy can be given to babies for maximum 10 minutes duration and it can help babies to get better. Reiki can even help mothers of newly born children to handle the stresses and hormonal fluctuations.
Reiki for Toddlers
Reiki for toddlers and school going children can help make their memory sharp and focused. Toddlers don’t think much about Reiki and their innocence allows the energy to flow quickly. They will become less hyper and their energy will be controlled in a better way. We engage them in some activity while administering Reiki. The child will be busy in reading book, watching a film or doing some activity thus enabling a session with them. Children may get immediate results and see colors around their body.
Reiki for Children
Reiki can be beneficial for kids and even teenagers. It helps in dealing with stresses of body and mind. They should have a balanced body and find easiness for taking any sort of tests or activities. Reiki can help in energy balancing and calming emotions stuck in depression or anxiety state.
- Helps highly sensitive children
- Reduces stress (test anxiety, sleep problems, behavioural problems)
- Improves focus and concentration
- Boosts self-confidence
- Promotes emotional well-being
- Speeds up physical healing
I have administered Reiki to many children (including my own) the results are outstanding and very positive. The greatest gift we can give our child (ren) is the gift of healing. Here is a testimonial from a clients mother. Dylan was just 3 years old when he visited the healing retreat with his mother.
“I was going through a difficult time with my three year old son and wasn’t sure where to turn. He was very cross and throwing tantrums and just hard to cope with. I was beginning to worry that he had some behavior problems or that it was something I was doing wrong.
I had heard about Reiki from a family member and the benefits of the angel healing and I decided to give it a try. I was very anxious and nervous about the first session as I wasn’t sure what way my son would react or whether or not he would allow the reiki to be done. That all changed once I met Tara, she made both of us feel very at ease and she explained that the reason for my sons behavior was to do with the way he came in to the world and the fact that he was frustrated more so than angry and that he felt insecure as he was forced out into the world.
Once Tara began the first session I couldn’t believe how relaxed my son was, his whole body just seemed to relax and he soaked up the Reiki. We have done four session with Tara and the difference in my son is amazing, he is a happier child, he is not as fearful and his behavior has improved thanks to Tara and the wonderful gift she has.”
