What is Reiki?

 

Reiki comes from Japanese and is translated as "universal life energy". The syllable "REI" describes an all-encompassing, limitless and inexhaustible energy (spirit / soul). "KI" stands for the vital life force that flows through all living things. Reiki is referred to as the energy which is the basis of all life. It is all the energy of a higher power (God, the universe, whatever you want to call it). Reiki flows through simple laying on of hands by the giver through, into the body of the recipient. But Reiki is not the personal power of the giver, but he merely serves as a channel through which the universal life energy flows.

Reiki is independent of a particular religion, a culture or belief system and is exercised by people of different religions and cultures. Reiki can be applied in addition to any orthodox medical or other alternative medical treatment. Reiki is a gentle, yet effective energy that gives the giver as well as the receiving a deep sense of wholeness. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health.

When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.

 

History of Reiki

 

Reiki is believed to have been associated with Mikao Usui who is credited with rediscovering the root system now called Reiki. His tradition and methods were passed through several grandmasters of Reiki.

Today, Reiki takes many forms, however, the Usui System of Natural Healing is still the form most widely practiced.

Practitioners and Master Teachers are trained through an initiation process where Masters pass on their knowledge and expertise to their students.

How does Reiki work?

 

Reiki works by allowing energy to flow through the affected areas of the body and charging them with positive energy. Raising the vibratory level of the energy field allows negative thoughts and emotions to be released, creating space for healing. Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, allowing the energy to flow in a natural and healthy way.

Reiki cleanses the body of built-up toxins, relieves pain, soothes shock, calms the mind and emotions and accelerates the body's natural ability to heal itself, at the same time promoting a state of relaxation and well-being. It works wherever the recipient needs it most.
