Reiki is the ancient art of “laying on hands” in order to heal. It is the use of touch to convey warmth, serenity, love, caring and healing, through the channeling of energy to enhance a person’s own life force.
Reiki’s meaning is broken down to Rei- and Ki.
Rei- : is spiritual power, universal transcendental spirit.
Ki : is the essence of vital life force energy.
Ki exists in everything. It is a subtle energy that flows within and surrounds all life. It is an essential energy for everything that exists in the physical and spiritual worlds.
There are a range of different vibrations within the human aura and chakras. These vibrations of Ki help to sustain the physical body, our thoughts and feelings as well as our spiritual experiences.
When Ki is out of balance, pockets of negative energy form around the physical body, and within the subtle energies of the aura and chakras.
This heavy negative energy cannot flow freely and becomes sluggish and stagnant resulting in dysfunction and illness in the body. It is only by removing this negative energy that healthy Ki is free to flow again and heal the body.
Reiki healers channel the positive Ki to the area of the body, chakra or aura where negative energy is harbored, allowing it to be released from the person’s energy field and replaced by healthy Ki, resulting in the natural flow of positive Ki. In short, Reiki healers channel through pure Universal Love.
Reiki practitioners need to be totally non-judgmental and their responsibility is to make the person receiving the healing feel totally safe.
Reiki is not a replacement of modern medicine. It assists the receiver in going through the processes of healing and self-empowerment by allowing them to take responsibility for their own health and happiness.
It complements all other therapies, whether allopathic or alternative by allowing the path of healing (physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual) to take place.
Ultimately this allows us all to become aware of our unlimited potential regarding our lives and relationships with others and the universe community.
