Can you receive reiki during pregnancy?
This is a question I often hear from pregnant women. Reiki is absolutely safe and can be given before, during and after pregnancy. Reiki is a gentle energy healing that helps both the mother and the baby.
When I was pregnant with my son, I gave myself reiki on the growing belly every day, and that always helped me to relax and stay calm.
At the beginning of the pregnancy, I placed my hands on my lower abdomen (over the uterus), and as my belly grew, I put my hands either on top of the belly or on my heart. I also practiced yoga and meditation on a daily basis which also seemed to help.
Toward the end of the pregnancy, my blood pressure dropped below the normal level, but I did not experience any discomfort such as headaches. I went through 9 hours of labor without any pain killers (yes I did have pain…lots of it!), and gave birth naturally in water.
It was an experience of a life time, and thanks to reiki, I was able to have a very healthy pregnancy without any complications and give birth to a healthy child.
Reiki is complimentary to western medicine
Having said, there are many people who experience difficult pregnancies, and they may be receiving medical attention. Reiki can compliment the medical treatments. When in doubt, you should always consult your physician and your reiki healer.
When the mother is relaxed, the baby will also be relaxed. After giving birth, I continued to give reiki to myself whenever I had free hands. I also give my son reiki whenever he falls sick. It is a non-intrusive home medicine which works well for everyone.
