The emotional health of a person depends on many factors, mainly on physical health. If you are physically healthy chances are your emotional health is quite up to the mark and vice versa.
If you are not physically fit, most of the times your mental and emotional health gets disturbed. You tend to be more angry and frustrated.
Can Reiki help you to get your physical, mental and emotional balance back?
what is healing
According to Wikipedia Healing (literally meaning to make whole) is the process of the restoration of health from an unbalanced, diseased or damaged organism. The result of healing can be a cure to a health challenge, but one can heal without being cured.
If you read the above definition carefully, you will notice the words like unbalanced, diseased, healing and cured.
All these words indicated the health condition which is not balanced, which is not at ease. Healing implies to get you restore your balanced and total at ease health condition.
Healing and Curing
The two main words in above definition are healing and curing. It is clearly stated in the definition that healing and curing are two different states of the healthy presence of being.
Curing occurs only on a physical level. If a person suffers from a disease, he is not healthy at a physical level. After medication, he recovers his health and he is cured. But that does not necessarily mean that he is healed.
Physical symptoms can be cured by proper medication, rest and care.
Healing is a totally different concept in context to the definition of a healthy person. Healing occurs on a physical, mental and emotional level of a being.
The above definition clearly mentions this when it says The result of healing can be a cure to a health challenge, but one can heal without being cured.
Healing occurs on a mental, emotional spiritual level which effects all over physical health.
All beings exist on different levels of existence. As we all know that we have more than a physical body. We all have in total 7 layers of our existence, we call it Aura.
Health is also closely related to the Chakra System, not only human beings but animals also have chakra system. Our overall health depends on the healthy Chakra system.
Though Mooladhar or root chakra is linked to the physical health of a person, any imbalance in one of the chakra affects the health of the other chakras as well.
Medication can cure a physical symptom and to an extent mental health, but it fails to heal when it comes to emotional health. On the contrary, no one can deny that medications as its own side effects and sometimes it gives rise to another health problem.
We all need to pay a serious attention to the side effects of the medications.
There are methods of healing like Reiki, crystal therapy, acupressure, Ayurveda and hundreds of others.
What is emotional wellness
Emotional wellness inspires self-care, relaxation, stress reduction and the development of inner strength. It is important to be attentive to both positive and negative feelings and be able to understand how to handle these emotions.
Emotional wellness also includes the ability to learn and grow from experiences. Emotional well-being encourages autonomy and proper decision-making skills. It is an important part of overall wellness.
How healing can improve your emotional wellness
As I mentioned above there are innumerable methods of Healing. I highly admire Reiki as the most effective method of healing for its simplicity of application. You need an attunement and with the help of your palms, you can heal literally anything.
The human body is a complex creation of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects. Beside Reiki, Yoga is the most useful method to heal yourself on all levels.
How Reiki Works?
Reiki is a technique that aids the body in opening the blocked meridians, nadis and chakras and clears the energy and aura.
The effects of blocked and unreleased stress from our bodies can give us minor to major health concerns. It could be anything starting from minor cold and fever to heart diseases, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, kidney issues, high and low blood pressure, liver issues and even cancer.
Here reiki helps by correcting the imbalances of the body and by replacing the blocked and stagnant energy.
Every Chakra has its own functions and any imbalance in the energy flow can result in the underactive, overactive or in severe cases block the chakra.
Reiki can restore the energy flow as Reiki is nothing but the energy in its purest form. So when Reiki is given to the Chakra for a particular time period, the whole system gets rectify and works harmoniously again.

Now, you must have known the importance of mental and emotional health. Are you worrying if you are good at emotional health?
Not to worry, take a self-test, if you wish you can download it and keep checking after a month or two.
I recommend this test, as you come to know in which area you need to work.
Healing is a continuous process and you need to work on it on a daily basis. Reiki yourself only for 15 minutes. If you are a Reiki Practitioner level 1, then also you can heal yourself.
Prevention is better than Cure
Reiki mainly helps when it comes to boosting your immunity. If your immune system is strong, obviously you are more protected from severe diseases.
The other main feature of Reiki is that it instantaneously gives you relaxation.
Healing happens naturally when we follow some easy steps mentioned above. Though healing is necessary, we tend to easily overlook it at the risk of our health.
Healing does not only mean physical cure, healing means energy equilibrium of all our levels of existence including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
