Reiki is safe in pregnancy. Pregnancy can bring up a lot of emotion around body image, birth, and becoming responsible for a tiny human. Being pregnant can stir up trauma that has long been buried. Fear and anxiety is common during this time, and Reiki energy can ease the stress, and release blockages in the body. Everything an expectant mother feels, her baby feels. Stress in utero can have lifelong effects on an unborn baby.
Reiki is universal life force energy. It is the energy all around us, and in us. Matter is energy, and we are matter.
A Reiki practitioner is a hose for this energy, allowing it to flow through, and go where it needs to go in the person who is receiving.
You might hear about things you can’t eat and things you can’t do while pregnant. Reiki is perfectly safe during pregnancy. Minimizing stress and maximizing relaxation not only feels better, but also creates very different cells in the developing fetus. The benefits of Reiki are numerous. Because it is non-invasive, and can be done with all other treatments of any kind, Reiki is being used in major hospitals around the USA. There are promising results for babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), when babies are born addicted. Why not Reiki instead of opiates for these tiny humans?
If you are stressed while pregnant, it is important for you to know how to relax. There are many ways to do this, but sometimes a person might need a jumpstart, like when the battery needs a boost.
Our bodies are capable of relaxation and healing, but there may be an energy block that needs unblocking.
It can be hard to imagine what we can’t see, yet, it’s possible to believe what we can’t see. We hear the wind howling, and it isn’t visible with the naked eye. Sometimes we can see the sun’s rays, when there is fog or certain clouds. We see rainbows in the sky, that are really light rays, and not tangible.
Massage and chiropractic care have both become mainstream and acceptable forms of treatment for pregnant women and babies. Reiki is slowly catching up. The energy that we are, and that we create always flows somewhere. In pregnancy, while growing a human, I becomes we. Connecting with the unborn baby growing inside is the best way to fully realize the magnificence, and profound process that is happening.
Reiki can support this process of connection, and bring into awareness the symbiotic relationship between the mother and her growing baby. Talking and singing to baby is also a great way to connect. Babies hear, feel and taste everything in the womb.
