Reiki Energy Healing, Autism & Learning Difficulties

Re-sharing this blog as children are our future and the more we can do to improve their life journey the better.

Many of us feel like the 'loose piece of the jigsaw', the 'square peg in the round hole' and today children are often diagnosed and labelled when they perform outside of the 'norm'. They are unique souls here to teach the world a whole new way of perceiving everything, even the simplest of activities.

We need to get rid of these labels and reevaluate how these individuals communicate, how they see daily life and how situations affect them. What is becoming clearer is that many are very spiritual and highly empathic, hence why the react with such extremes in situations.

Growing up I was always told I was 'too sensitive', no, I could (& still can) sense how people feel, whether they in pain, sad, distressed, the difficulties they are suffering and the anxiety situations bring for them.

Growing up I was always told I was 'too sensitive', no, I could (& still can) sense how people feel, whether they in pain, sad, distressed, the difficulties they are suffering and the anxiety situations bring for them. When adults cannot understand the way the child reacts, the individual can sense this and get more frustrated and upset because they cannot verbalise it themselves. They just see the world differently and want to help everyone heal and be happy. Reiki Energy Healing is exceptional for souls on this journey, as it promotes relaxation, removes anxiety and negative emotional blockages and aids sleep (natures rebuilding tool!). This allows people to learn new ways to be calm, to live more positively and to build confidence and self-worth. 

Everyone is a unique piece of life's puzzle

I know first-hand that by performing it regularly on myself and others, my own anxiety dissipates greatly. As an empath, I easily take on negative vibes and energies from situations, others and the environment and have to work to eject them from my being. I am always looking to learn new ways to handle the negativity the world throws at us. Positive news agencies and stories work to promote positivity but are not yet widely the focus but they continue to emerge more and more, to life us up, which is exciting.

Reiki healing treatments are therefore amazing for helping overly-anxious autistic spectrum children (& adults), those with ADHD, ADD, ODD and similar difficulties in understand the world as is expected by the 'norm'. They can also benefit from being taught, even the basics, of self-Reiki so daily they take time to induce calm thoughts and feelings.  It helps them to realise, even in a small way, that it can take time to be calm, that it does not come naturally to most of us. When children are in a classroom struggling with learning issues, as their brain processes the information differently, then they can take time out to breathe and perform, even some, of the hand positions. It is about getting them to understand there is nothing bad or 'wrong' with them, their make-up just means they do things differently to get to the end result.

This Energy Healing is a natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement and so can help with their development.  If the child is hyperactive, unsure of strangers or extremely sensitive to touch then the treatment can be performed a few inches from their bodies, without touch or across the room, at a distance. As I sometimes find with animals, this does not make the session any less powerful, distance reiki produces just as great results. It can be common for children with autism to fall asleep during a session, as they become relaxed and at ease. Autism is such a complex condition, the levels vary by individual so different foods, treatments and teachings needs to be used. In contrast, Reiki should work for all levels, either with the hands-on approach or at a distance, it is not limited by time or space. 

This form of energy healing ignites the immune system, encouraging natural internal healing, assisting in improving the imbalances found particularly in Autistic Spectrum children, such as the mercury levels. Reiki is provided in Hospitals & Treatment Centres throughout the world, one great example is in Great Ormond Street Hospital on the child cancer patients. 

When looking for diagnoses, parents are often brushed away with recommendations like 'be firmer' and so forth, without full investigations. It is vital we get to the cause of the behaviour's and not with mainstream medication (unless there is no other way). Autism spectrum children are especially sensitive so the 'recommended dose' can sometimes be too strong, so try smaller amounts at first. There are a lot of articles, videos & dietary advice online and from parents who have found ways to cure their children themselves naturally.  Changing the diet intake of an autistic child aids with the heavy metal detoxification and the healing of the gut. Sensory Processing disorder (autism) is known to be caused by mercury poisoning, which can happen if the mother is given certain fillings dangerous to unborn babies or unwittingly consuming products with unusually high levels. 

One lady who has done this successfully is Karen Thomas of She has been in holistic health for 28 years, 24 of those practicing Craniosacral Therapy, (balancing the bones of the head to allow the brain to function at optimum). There are awesome free downloads on her site for diet plans & suggested supplements, like, coconut kefir. Gluten & Casein may need to be eliminated from the diet to. Everyone is different so it there is most often not an easy solution.

I believe, as our bodies renew themselves and we can find a level of understanding for everything, then we can really help children having difficulty with the behaviour's we take for granted. Children within the autism spectrum function differently but it is most certainly something that can be reduced and even healed fully. It is possible to remove the headaches, stomach cramps, high levels of anxiety, depression, sensor issues with Reiki Energy Healing. 

Reiki is an energy healing treatment that restores emotional, physical and mental balance to our bodies, minds and souls. Life challenges cause the flow of energy within us to be stifled and Reiki stimulates the immune system and our natural healing abilities to restore balance. Blockages and toxins build up due to the complexities of life and negative 'learned' behaviour's and thought patterns. The treatment helps to relieve stress & anxiety, promote relaxation and ease pain. It can benefit the recipient with increased awareness, insight, wisdom and personal growth. 

As Reiki ignites the immune system and our bodies own ability to heal, so is ideal in the healing of a child with learning difficulties, ADD, ADHD, autism and high levels of anxiety. I shall continue to learn more on this topic as helping more children is one of my important goals.

Have an amazing day / evening / week ahead. Be kind to yourself and others, even generating a smile in another brighten your day too. I often challenge myself when I go out to see how many people I can get to smile as I walk down the street happy, greeting everyone, even with a smile, as I go.
