Reiki is a form of spiritual healing dating back to 20th century Japan. Created by Buddhist Sensei Mikao Usui, Reiki helps heal a person through the energy flowing from the palms of the practitioner.
Reiki (RAY-KEE) is a healing energy that channels through the hands of the practitioner and into the body of the client. The word Reiki is Japanese and means “universal” or “including all” (Rei) and “vital life force” (Ki) which flows throughout our very being.
How does Reiki work?
The Reiki energy changes the frequency in the body’s energy (and it is a scientifically proven fact that the body has an energy field called the Aura), healing the body first, moving to the mental and the emotional levels, and then to the spirit.
Reiki is “hands on healing” but also allows energy to be transferred remote or across distance. The universal energy fills the practitioner and flows out through the hands and into the client’s body, thus giving every cell, all the way to the DNA, the proper energy and balance it needs to heal, harmonize and balance.
The Reiki energy instinctively goes where it needs to go. Frequently after your first Reiki treatment, you will go through a few days of cleansing… you may develop a slight cold, you may cry out something you’ve been holding in, you may work through some type of problem you’ve been trying to, or not to, deal with.
The uses of Reiki?
Reiki can be used in conjunction with any other healing therapy. Reiki will increase your overall health, vitality, and ability to recover. Reiki also reduces the negative effects of chemotherapy and medications. There are no harmful side effects from the use of Reiki.
Besides the healing effects of Reiki on human beings, Reiki can also be used to treat animals, plants, or anything else that has energy. Reiki healing practitioners all over the world have times when they send the Reiki energy out into our universe to help it heal. I have used Reiki to charge the crystals that I use for healing, to charge the water I give to my plants, to clear a house of negative energy, and much more than I can possibly list here.
Why do I recommend everyone use Reiki healing in their lives? Reiki is a powerful form of healing. It is effective, convenient and fulfilling. Not only does Reiki heal the body, but it calms the mind and nurtures the spirit. Not everyone will be called to be a Reiki healer; however, I believe that everyone should at least allow themselves the experience of Reiki’s healing and loving energy at least one time in their life.
I believe when you experience Reiki, you are experiencing the touch of everything on the planet simultaneously, and the experience is rich and lasting.
