Reiki: What is it?
Reiki is a natural, non-invasive, hands-on healing technique that has been in use for thousands of years to treat specific injuries and ailments, as well as to promote general health and wellbeing, and to increase the quality of life.
Reiki is made up of two Japanese words, “REI” (ray) and “KI” (key). REI symbolizes “divine wisdom”, a natural understanding of the root of all imbalances and what is needed to correct them. KI is the life force energy that exists in our bodies, in all living things and throughout the universe, giving us our physical and spiritual life – our emotions and thoughts.
Reiki combines the forces of REI and KI into a powerful and tangible tool for healing that can be defined as “Naturally Guided Life Force Energy” or “Universal Life Force Energy”.
A reiki practitioner can channel this guided life force energy through a gentle hands-on technique. The power of reiki can help relieve pain, accelerate the healing of injuries, release stress, alleviate insomnia, aid in building self-confidence, improve concentration, promote emotional and spiritual wellbeing, and bring out countless other wonderful results.
All forms of discomfort or dis-ease can be traced to blockages of the life force energy in the physical body as well as your other dimensions of mind, spirit and emotion. These blockages can manifest themselves as a common complaint such as a headache or stomach ache, or as uneasy feelings of anxiety, confusion or stress. Left unattended these blockages can manifest even more severe physical symptoms or conditions.
Reiki offers a healthy, gentle choice by going directly to the root of the problem. By unblocking energy flows and restoring balance, reiki accelerates the body’s natural healing process and helps eliminate the real source of discomfort, without any danger of side effects. Reiki cannot ever cause harm, there’s no such thing as “good” or “bad” reiki. The reiki knows where it needs to go even beyond the knowledge of the practitioner and client. Virtually any amount can be helpful, even as few as five minutes, and the more reiki you receive, the more positive results will be achieved.
A reiki healer will address any of your concerns, problems, or questions about creating an empowered life, and how to release anything that makes your heart feel heavy. You will then set an intention for your session regarding what you want to accomplish.
Some practitioners use one or several of many healing modalities to help you clear out past pain and blocks to make room for you to create what you deeply desire. The focus of your first session will be to assist you in discovering the truth held deep inside your heart for success in achieving your greatest desires as your Highest Self.
