Reiki is very beneficial for children. It helps them relax and balance their sensitive energy structures. Reiki is the perfect system that can be used by them to connect more consciously to the universal energy. Children can be easily attuned to Reiki and taught the simple basic hand positions for self healing and giving energy to others, their pets and even to their plants! Reiki allows them to feel the life force energy. The practice of Reiki empowers children in caring for themselves and others. They learn self-care and self-reliance, because they can use the energy to help themselves wherever they are at anytime. They also learn valuable lessons in compassion, because they are able to give healing energy to family, friends and their pets as they instinctively lay their hands on those that they want to help.
