What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique that promotes healing and is used for stress reduction and relaxation. This form of healing is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. The practitioner administers the treatments by laying the hands. If one is frequently sick or under a lot of stress, the chances are one’s life force energy is low. Now if the life force is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a very simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that anyone can use to improve their quality of life. This safe therapy is effective in helping many known physical and psychological illnesses and always creates a beneficial and positive effect. Reiki does work in conjunction with all other complementary or traditional medical treatments.
Reiki is transferred to the student during a Reiki class through a process called an attunement. During an attunement a Reiki Master/Teacher allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of life force energy to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life. This healing method has been taught to thousands of people from all over the world. Reiki comes from the Japanese words Rei meaning Higher Power or Wisdom and Ki meaning Life Force Energy. It implies a ray of light moving from the practitioner to the receiver.
What does a treatment feel like?
A reiki treatment gives you sense of warm energy surrounding your body as well as flowing through you. When undergoing a treatment, you are treated as a whole – meaning your mind, body, and spirit. A sense of wellbeing and peace is felt with many “miraculous” results. Some people experience immediate release of pain or improvement in physical symptoms, while others feel a release of tension, repressed emotions and feelings. After a session you feel at peace.
Is this Religious?
No, even though it is spiritual in nature it honors all organized religions. The word spirit means to breathe – the whole spirit – the “holy spirit”. So in a sense it facilitates the movement of breath by inducing a relaxed energized state and may make some feel “spiritual” and more connected to their faith. Reiki has no structured faith base or dogma to follow – it works on the highest vibration of unconditional love to help us heal and return to a state of wholeness and wellness. It works not matter what faith you have as its natural healing uses universal spiritual laws to promote wellness and peace. However, this can enhance your own faith and religion.
