Reiki Beyond Borders: The Importance of the Online Reiki Community in the Digital Age
Reiki Healing Association Member, Akleema Ali, explore the benefits of being involved in the online Reiki community
“…Not only do these vibrant communities showcase the beauty of this healing practice but they also serve as a source of daily inspiration and encouragement to keep learning, gain fresh insights and deepen our inner awakening…”
In the ever-evolving landscape of the digital age, the practice of Reiki has undergone a profound transformation. Today, the power of technology has extended the reach and influence of Reiki, creating a dynamic and interconnected global community that transcends geographical boundaries. With a few taps on our devices, we gain access to a wealth of resources, including Reiki association websites, Facebook community groups, Instagram accounts, and downloadable Reiki music. This technological evolution has not only amplified the impact of Reiki but has also fostered a profound sense of unity among practitioners worldwide.
The emergence of this digital Reiki community has ushered in a new era of connection and accessibility. Practitioners of all levels of experience can now effortlessly connect through online platforms, to see other practitioners practicing and living Reiki at different locations across the globe. The sense of oneness that emerges from this global network, reinforces the notion that the Reiki collective is continually working towards spreading love and light to every corner of our beloved Mother Earth.
Embracing the Digital Age
Often the importance of having a digital Reiki community becomes most apparent during life’s most challenging moments. In times of overwhelm or hopelessness, or when the health of ourselves or our loved ones is at stake, we can now turn to Reiki groups for support. It is very common for individuals in these groups to request Reiki for those undergoing medical treatments, coping with illness, or receiving palliative care. And there is always an enormous upsurge of healing sent for those in need. When we have access to this network of loving souls eager to help, we can also send healing to the collective at large, getting
involved in Reiki Shares and events across the globe for causes that matter.
Another benefit of the digital world is its unique ability to connect us with the rich history and heritage of Reiki. Although most of us will never physically set foot on Mt. Kurama, where Usui Sensei was blessed with the gift of Reiki, the digital world allows us to explore, learn, and expand our knowledge through the experiences of those who have made this pilgrimage. These dedicated practitioners generously share their insights through videos, stories, photographs, and Reiki practices and meditations they’ve learned in Japan so that others can incorporate and enhance their practice.
It is a real joy to see the diverse ways that my fellow practitioners incorporate Reiki into their daily lives. From channelled Reiki whilst kayaking on open waters, to offering Reiki to animals during a family day out at the zoo – the possibilities with Reiki are endless. With this knowledge comes an appreciation that Reiki, as a lifestyle, ultimately looks different to everyone, which allows us to appreciate that our practice of Reiki will continue to guide us exactly where we need to be. Our journey with Reiki is always a unique experience.
Finding Inspiration Online
When much of your time as a Reiki Practitioner is focused on giving sessions and teaching others this healing art, tapping into the online Reiki community has another crucial advantage. Not only do these vibrant communities showcase the beauty of this healing practice, but they also serve as a source of daily inspiration and encouragement to keep learning, gain fresh insights and deepen our inner awakening.
Consequently, when we do embark on challenges like the 21-day detox or self-Reiki journey, we can easily reach out to our digital community to share our evolving experiences, emotional releases, and concerns.
The digital age inspires us to step beyond our comfort zones and actively contribute to the Reiki community by sharing videos, meditations, podcasts, and YouTube channels that highlight our Reiki practices. Even if we aren’t the creators of these channels, when we engage as viewers, we naturally find ourselves directed toward enhancing our own inner Reiki practice.
In this modern context, the words of Mikao Usui take on renewed significance: “Reiki can never and will never belong to just one person, one organization, one generation, or one time. Reiki is the spiritual heritage of all humanity.” As we embrace Reiki in the digital age, we not only witness its power to connect us, but also understand that it is a timeless and boundless gift meant to be shared, cherished, and continuously explored by all.
