What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a form of  energy healing that centers on the manipulation of ki, the Japanese version of chi.    Rei means spirit in Japanese, so Reiki literally means spirit life force, life  force energy or universal life force.

Reiki energy is an unseen energy that flows through all things, living and non-living. It is directly connected to the quality of  being(ness). This principle has been part of the wisdom of many cultures.  Recent scientific experiments, as well as many medical doctors have verified the existence of this, “life force energy.”  Doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.

Applying Reiki energy creates a feeling that reduces stress, a feeling of relaxation and well-being, for the client. The “life force energy,” which the client taps into, is an energy that is unlimited and can improve health and enhance the way a person is living their life.

A Reiki Master invokes Reiki into the student; through attunements and Sanskrit symbols this is how Reiki has been passed on through the generations.  Anyone can receive attunements. It has nothing to do with intellectual capacity or spiritual development; therefore, it is available to everyone.  It’s been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

A very good question was posed to me by a client, I thought was worthy of mentioning at this time.  The question being, “if Reiki energy flows through people all the time then why would a person need a Reiki treatment?”  The answer is, “Yes, the energy flows through everyone.  However, when a person experiences trauma in their life whether it be on the physical level, emotional level or even on the spiritual level it creates blockages.”  These blockages create dis-ease and they reside within the bodies energy centers, better known as Chakras.  If these blockages are allowed to remain for a period of time, the physical body will develop symptoms, ill health.  This can be as simple as a cold.  Over time, it can also develop into various other types of illnesses like migraines, depression, cancer or even accidents.  Simply put, a garden hose allows water to flow through it.   Though, if a kink develops, the water stops flowing, if this state is allowed for a long enough period of time the hose may burst.  Much like the example of the hose, the same thing can happen to an energy center in the body it to can explode.  This would create a serious illness or injury that the body may not recover from.
