Reiki is described as the “universal life energy” and when you are attuned to this energetic vibration, it can be channelled through you and passed on to whomever you touch.
In many eastern cultures, it is known that the universe is not just empty space but that it is filled with a dynamic, conscious energy. Names given to this energy include “Chi” in China, “Ki” in Japan, and “Prana” in India.
In the early 1900’s, a Japanese man named Mikao Usui was inspired to find a way to work with this energy. He discovered how to do that and applied these practices to his patients with great success, and later taught other people to do the same.
The word “Reiki” is now commonly used to refer to Mikao Usui’s System of Reiki Healing, by the channelling of this universal life energy through the hands.
Reiki helps to heal mind, body and spirit, by accelerating the body’s own ability to heal itself physically, and by opening the mind to the emotional and mental causes of disease and pain.
Reiki is an extremely pleasant, holistic method of healing. It makes you feels more relaxed and balanced and strengthens your powers to resist disease and illness.
It brings calm and wellbeing into your life and it increases the vibrational frequency of your whole body, by loosening up blocked energy and promoting a state of total relaxation.
Cleanses & Strengthens Immune System
Reiki cleanses the body of poisons and supports the immune system to be at its best to regain balance in your body. It does not conflict with any medical treatments; moreover, it helps the other treatments to work more effectively.
Empowers To Heal Yourself
Reiki is a great way to open your own healing channels, to be able to learn to heal yourself and others. It functions on all levels of healing – physical, mental, spiritual and emotional.
Reiki is a mistake-proof healing technique. As long as the good intention is there when Reiki is activated, any missing information will be filled.
Connects You To Inner Wisdom
Reiki vitalises and accelerates the purification within you, and it helps with grounding and keeping you centred.
It takes you out of your mind, and back into your body. Which is necessary, as your mind confuses things and muddies the waters unnecessarily. The clarity of “being” comes from connecting to your inner wisdom, and reiki is a great way to do that for yourself.
What Reiki Feels Like
It’s a very peaceful energy; it’s extremely pleasant to work with. When you work with it, it’s like a rush of peaceful energy comes through you and it makes you feel closer to yourself. It’s a very intelligent healing method, as it adjusts itself according to the needs of the recipient.
During treatment, some people experience a warm, cool or tingling sensation. On an emotional and spiritual level, it’s frequently experienced as a tremendous feeling of love and joy, or as a sense of release.
When doing reiki on others, people often see colours, flashes of light or images such as dragons; some even hear their inner wisdom.
How Do You Learn Reiki?
Reiki can be used by anyone who wishes to be initiated by a qualified Reiki teacher and you can use it on animals, plants, and past and future events. Virtually, there is no limit in the application of Reiki, and once you are initiated, Reiki stays with you until your physical body is terminated.
