Reiki, a Japanese energy modality, may seem difficult for the logical mind to understand, but that is because, in the western world, we tend to comprehend only what we can see. When we look at the human body, we see the biological aspects of bones, skin, hair etc. as well as the chemical components of blood and hormones. Researchers have proven that we also embody an energy component. Energy exists within each cell and between each cell – our subtle matter. This energy, when blocked or diminished, can cause imbalances or disease in the body, including fertility problems keeping a woman from becoming pregnant.
In many areas of the world, medical treatments or health and wellness models include the integration of some type of energy medicine to treat the whole body. When one’s energy is out of balance, the body is impacted in some way. This includes the reproductive organs and hormones levels that support ovulation.
What Impacts our Fertility
Our life history impacts and creates the energy dynamics that are occurring in our body. Positive behaviors like good eating habits, exercising, and increasing healthy self-esteem feed a positive energy flow in the body. Constant stress, lack of exercise, substance abuse and harboring a negative or fearful belief system cause blocks in the energy field that diminish flow to different areas of the body. The energy field might also be damaged from broken bones, falls, past surgeries, major illnesses or long-term emotional or mental stress.
The practitioner must first assess what is or is not occurring in the client’s entire energy field and then work toward repairing and restoring it. What we need to understand when seeking any energy modality for healing is that it took years or even decades to create the energy dynamic that is occurring in our body to support or obstruct our health and pregnancy goals. Restoring wellness using Reiki is a process.
When a practitioner is working with someone having fertility issues, they explore where the energy is blocked or out of balance and begin to restore those areas. Many times, the energy in and around the reproductive systems is very low, particularly if the woman has old emotional wounds stored in this area.
All parts of our body serve a role in keeping us healthy. Our energy, when at its optimum, supports total health and well-being. It provides the fuel for all of our body’s systems and organs to work at full capacity. Without a full tank, we may feel as if we are struggling on various levels; our body might not be able to perfectly perform in the way that the various components were meant to, and our emotional or mental states may experience depression or feel overwhelmed.
How Reiki is Used to Support Fertility and Pregnancy
Unlike the medical arena where doctors note measurements of hormone levels, follicle development, anatomic abnormalities and other patterns during the work-up of infertility, Reiki cannot label specific patterns in a woman’s energy field that has fertility issues, as each person’s energy dynamic is different. The common thread is that each woman’s energy is diminished in some way, but the reason for the low energy levels differs for each one. It might take several sessions to restore a person’s energy and to repair broken and depleted energies.
Reiki can be used throughout a woman’s cycle to support the growth of follicles and recruitment of healthy eggs, the fertilization of eggs and assisting the embryo to implant in the uterine lining. Reiki also provides emotional and mental balance, helping the client to align with the process of fertility in a more positive way. It is very discouraging for a woman to be told by the medical community that she should give up when she is feeling empowered to manifest a family. The negativity permeates into her emotional and energetic fields, creating more blocks. Reiki nurtures her into a place of knowing that all will work out for the best and that all parts of her being are working toward creating the highest good for all. Energy follows thought and is empowered by our feelings.
When to include Reiki
It is important for women with fertility issues to know that the process of receiving Reiki to restore the energy field should begin as soon as possible when you are considering conception by any means. This gives a woman’s energy field time to be cleared, repaired and strengthened for your new cycle to begin. Reiki also helps with the lack of energy that a woman feels in the first and third trimesters of pregnancy, as well as providing excellent labor and delivery support. One physician, aged 42, who received Reiki when her specialist told her to adopt it after the first round of IVF failed believes that, diversifying your healing team to include a Reiki practitioner not only supports the reproductive process but also helps to bring balance and peace in mind, body and life.
