REIKI FOR THE DYING.
In today's society,dying and death are still subjects surrounded by strong taboos,though this is gradually changing.We are afraid to die and death is the worst thing that can happen to us.But death is part of life and is a natural process.It can be a totally fulfilling, liberating and completing experience,regardless of when it comes for each of us.
Birth and death are transformations into another form of existence.
In death we leave the physical plane and our immortal essence,
our soul,moves on to the next stage in its process of development.
You can give support and make the transition much easier for the dying person.
You can hold the dying person's hand or treat him or her
with Reiki energy.The person will feel protected and will find it easier to die,or move into the other dimension.
When a person has been weakened by illness and their own feelings around it,especially over a long period of time,
healing provides the much needed energy that the patient needs to
die with dignity.
Reiki calms the person while allowing the natural process of dying to take place.
