Why Insight Reiki Meditation Might Work

Insight Reiki Meditation (IRM), developed by Eileen Dey Wurst, is a mindfulness and somatic-based practice that has been found to increase embodiment. This enables access to the transliminal state of consciousness, which has been shown to have beneficial effects on mental health. To date, however, IRM has not been part of a formal study. The purpose of this paper is to explore the mechanisms by which IRM may enhance interoceptive awareness (IA), and in doing so, establish a foundation for future research into the benefits of IRM.

There is growing evidence to suggest that IA plays a role in mental health. For example, it has been found that people with anxiety and depression tend to have lower levels of IA. This may be because they are less aware of their bodily sensations, or because they have difficulty interpreting them correctly. Either way, low IA is thought to contribute to the development and maintenance of these disorders.

There is also evidence to suggest that people with higher levels of IA are more resilient to stress. This may be because they are better able to regulate their emotions, or because they have a greater understanding of their own bodies and how to take care of them. Either way, high IA is thought to contribute to a person’s overall well-being.

So, how does Insight Reiki Meditation increase IA? It is thought that the practice of IRM enhances embodiment by increasing body awareness and sensitivity to subtle energies. This, in turn, leads to a heightened state of consciousness known as transliminality. Transliminality is characterized by an increased ability to process information that is outside of our normal conscious awareness. This includes things like intuition, hunches, and so-called “gut feelings.”

Studies have shown that people who are in a transliminal state of consciousness are more likely to report experiencing paranormal phenomena, such as ghosts, UFOs, and precognition. They are also more likely to score high on measures of creativity and open-mindedness.

So, what does all this have to do with Reiki?

Well, it’s thought that the practice of Reiki can help to increase our level of transliminality by opening up our chakras and increasing our sensitivity to subtle energies. This, in turn, can help us to become more aware of our intuition and gut feelings, and ultimately make better decisions in our lives.

So, there you have it! The next time you’re feeling stuck in a decision, or just looking for a little guidance from the Universe, try giving Reiki a try. You might just be surprised at what you learn about yourself!
