What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique use for relaxation and stress reduction while also promoting healing physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Reiki is helpful and safe to use while receive traditional medical treatment.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique used for relaxation and stress reduction while also promoting healing. Reiki is believed to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago and rediscovered by Mikao Usui in March of 1922 in Japan. The word Reiki is represented by two kanji (characters that represent the work Reiki), "Rei" and "Ki". "Rei" means "spiritually guided" or "wisdom of God" while "Ki" means "life force energy". Therefore, Reiki means "spiritually guided life force energy".
Reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy which brings about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Reiki is used for stress reduction, relaxation and symptom relief in efforts to improve overall health and well-being. Anyone can learn and practice Reiki as its universal energy is accessible to all. Reiki is beneficial for everyone and can assist with the individual's healing process. Whether the individual has a head cold or an “in-curable” “dis-ease”, Reiki can be used hand-in-hand with standard medical treatments. Because so many individuals have experienced the wonderful benefits of Reiki, many hospitals have begun to incorporate this healing technique with traditional medical practices to speed up the individual's recovery process. To understand how it works you need to know that Reiki is a spiritually guided energy that draws on the wisdom of The Universe to tap into the underlining cause of the “ill-ness” or “dis-ease”. It is also important to realize that Reiki is not harmful to anyone as Reiki is a positive energy field that is fueled by the wisdom of God (The Universe).
So how does Reiki work?
Because Reiki has the divine wisdom and is made of the same energy field that we are made of, when we connect ourselves to this energy it provides support to the energy fields within us that may need some assistance. This is why when Reiki is combined with traditional medical treatment, the individual has a faster and easier recovery process. Reiki is safe for everyone including babies, the elderly, and animals. Reiki is non-judgmental and is available to all.
Reiki treatments are performed by a Reiki practitioner who has been attuned to channel the flow of energy from the practitioner’s hands to the body of the client. It is essential to be clear that the energy being used is not the energy of the practitioner but of The Universe. As a Reiki practitioner, I find this is very important to share with my clients so that they understand that it is not my energy working through them but the energy that we all have access to and are all a part of. A Reiki practitioner is only a vehicle or tool used to facilitate the transfer of energy. I like to explain this to my clients because I feel that it is my responsibility to educate my clients about where the energy comes from and their relationship to this energy.
