Feb. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- As a parent of a child who is on the autistic spectrum, I have found Reiki to be an invaluable tool for both my son and our family.  Reiki is a safe, non invasive form of hands-on energy healing. I discovered its effectiveness on autistic individuals by accident after I received my Level II Reiki attunement. Throughout puberty, my son was prone to episodes of rage.  During one particularly bad episode, I felt at a complete loss. Then, I remembered I could use Reiki.  It wasn’t the best time to try and get close enough to touch, or almost touch him.  I utilized distance healing* and the results were just as fast and effective as “hands-on”. The one thing we all want is for our kids to be happy, and while Reiki is not a magic pill, it certainly aids our kids in countless ways.  They generally become calm and relaxed after receiving the energy which opens a door for stress free therapy sessions, or simply time spent with the family.  Getting Reiki on a regular basis has been known to help with sleep issues, moods, compliance issues, depression and more.

A suggestion I have for parents is that you get attuned to Reiki. This affords you the opportunity to treat your child in the moment.  Another benefit is that it aids in relieving one of the feeling of helplessness that often comes with the territory of being a parent of a special needs child. You could also put Reiki energy into your children’s beds, backpacks, food, and drink.  You can give Reiki to anything that comes in contact with your children, and your family. You can help your child, your family, and yourself if you’re a level I, but level II is recommended.  Level II makes it possible to treat your child from a distance.

In treating autistic children, a good practitioner will be able to judge how best to administer treatment.  Keep in mind that the session could include some time where the practitioner works “hands –on”, as well as distance healing.  I would also suggest that if your child has a special toy, he bring it with him.  The therapist could use the toy as a proxy, or tool to show the child what is going to happen.  She could also put Reiki energy into the toy so that whenever the child holds it, he continues to experience the energy.

There’s one more point I’d like to talk about.  Being a parent in general, can be stressful.  Being the parent of a child with special needs is even more so.  Self care is important.  You can only offer as much as you’ve got.  If your fuel levels are low, it’s not going to be long before your empty.  Add to that, the stress is felt by the other members of the household too, be they humans or pets.  If at least one parent is attuned to Reiki, he/she can give treatments to everyone. Giving Reiki does not deplete your energy, nor does it make you tired. The real beauty here is that every time you give a Reiki treatment, you receive one too.  

*distance healing is a method of energy healing where one designates a proxy to work on when “hands-on” is not feasible or possible.
