According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 12 percent of women ages 15-44 will experience difficulty getting pregnant and carrying a baby full term. About 1/3 of women older than 35 will experience fertility problems. The CDC lists aging ovaries, smoking, health conditions and alcohol abuse as possible culprits of creating fertility challenges.
As a Reiki Master I have seen how Reiki can help increase the odds of a couple wanting to have a baby. Reiki works on the body’s energy. The basic foundation of every cell in our body is energy. Energy is in our cells, between our cells and creates a vital energy field in and around our body when we are healthy. When our energy is out of balance, our body is impacted in some way. Reiki works to remove energy blocks and to restore balance so all of the reproductive glands and organs can be supported to do what they are meant to do – reproduce!
Our emotions impact our level of energy as well. We know that when we are happy we feel more energized than when we are depressed. If we stay centered in negative emotions or thoughts it diminishes our energy. Here are things that I find cause energy blocks to fertility:
- Physical damage to the energy field from car accidents, bad falls or past surgeries (your energy is leaking out instead of supporting reproduction.
- Hosting anger, disappointment or resentment over a long period of time.
- Emotional energy registered in the body from sexual abuse.
- Emotional energy from regrets or anxiety over past abortions.
- Mental worry about getting pregnant in times when you did not want to get pregnant.
- Emotional energy founded in judgment or guilt about sex.
This is a short list of what I see the most in rebuilding energy fields to support pregnancy. So what does Reiki do with these? Reiki helps to flush out of the field and body the blocks caused by the emotional issues. Reiki restores the energetic template so that our energy is not leaking out of our energy field. It rebuilds and restores balance on all levels. Reiki helps us to forgive our past and move into the future enabling us to hold a full charge of energy instead of being diminished. Reiki is like your phone charger offering you a full charge or even more to help boost reproductive systems that are challenged by age. For men with low sperm count, their energy can be impacted by most of the issues listed above as well.
One of my clients the doctors could not tell why she was unable to get pregnant after 8 years. After one Reiki session to unblock the entire first and second chakras (energy centers that impact reproduction), she became pregnant. This is very unusual but it does happen. Another client at age 41 who was going for her third round of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) added Reiki throughout the process and produced 9 eggs and now has a 5 year old son.
According to WebMD, the most popular infertility treatment is IVF. The statistics of fertilization success with this treatment is 29.6% on average, lower for women over 35. If you have problems getting pregnant or are going through a procedure to increase your chances of having a baby, Reiki might just help boost your energy and restore balance making a difference and so that you are one of the 29.6% that gets pregnant. A bonus with Reiki is that it can help keep you calm as you go through the process.
