There is nothing more upsetting for a couple who have decided it is time to start a family than to experience difficulty conceiving and carrying a baby to full term.
The hormones involved in the reproductive system of both men and women are very finely balanced. Any disruption in our health, whether physical, emotional or energetic will impact this fine balance. It is therefore important to consider the mind / body connection. This is where Reiki for fertility comes in.
Reiki is known to be useful for pain management, stress reduction, improved sleep and energy levels, recovery from injury and surgery, and for symptom control. It can be used alongside other fertility treatments and is beneficial for those trying to conceive naturally. It helps to balance our immune system, our endocrine system and assisting the function of our organs.
The Importance of the Root and Naval Chakras
The body is believed to have seven main centres of energy, the chakras. The ones most important to reproduction are the Root chakra (Muladhara) and Navel chakra (Swadhisthana). These are located at the base of the pelvis and in our lower abdomen respectively.
There are many reasons why our energy can be disrupted: stresses and traumas, our hectic and demanding lifestyle, negative thought patterns, toxins in the environment / medications / foods (such as preservatives and pesticides) and hormones in meats and milk etc.
In particular, I see many clients with past trauma from childhood events and / past relationships, or carrying trauma from their parents (genetic memories) and past lives. It may be sexual, physical or emotional abuse or simply being told that nothing is ever good enough and a lack of self esteem. With Reiki it is not necessary to know where this trauma originates, or to go and re-live any events. It is enough to simply acknowledge the emotions held within the body, to work to release them and to bring better balance and harmony.
In my experience, trauma will often lead to the closing or blocking of the Root and Naval chakras. This is a type of protection, a hanging on or closing down.
In this case clients of both sexes will often experience:
- Stiffness in their hips
- Lower back pain or pain down their leags
- Digestive concerns
- Reproductive issues
In addition, men may experience:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low libido
- Inability to ejaculate
- Changes in sperm quality / quantity
And women complain of:
- Irregular or painful menses
- Poly-cystic ovarian syndrome
- Pain and itching / bleeding with intercourse
- Low libido
In my practice I have also seen many women with with cancer; of the uterus / endometrium / ovaries / breast, and in every case there was some sort of emotional trauma or abuse in their history.
Stress and Fertility
It is widely recognised that stress plays a big part in fertility. There are many Studies that link elevated stress hormones with difficulty conceiving and experiencing a successful pregnancy.
In addition to releasing trapped emotions and trauma, a Reiki session will bring deep relaxation, a letting go of everyday stresses, it calms the nervous system allowing for regeneration and healing to take place. By releasing and resolving trauma it also allows the body to function at a much more optimal level, and for the person to become less reactive to events in everyday life.
Reiki for Fertility
In conclusion: Reiki works to rebalance your body, to release trauma that is stored within the body and to relieve stress. It assists in the optimal functioning of the whole body, including the endocrine system and organs.
Reiki for fertility will never guarantee that you have a successful pregnancy, but it can certainly go a long way towards preparing you physically and emotionally, and give you the best chance possible. Of course, in some cases, there is a physical or structural concern that can only be addressed using Western medicine.
You may wish to experience Reiki for fertility before undergoing more invasive and disruptive treatment.
