What is Reiki?
Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy.
The word ‘Reiki’ comes from two Japanese words – ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki.’ ‘Rei’ is the universal life force, and represents spiritual consciousness or universal knowledge, whereas ‘Ki’ simply means energy.
We are all made up of energy. The energy flowing through our body nourishes organs and cells, keeping our physical system healthy and strong. When this energy is disrupted or blocked, it may weaken the vital functioning of our organs/cells causing physical pain or discomfort.
Reiki is used to cleanse your energy pathways, thereby healing your body, mind, and soul.
Reiki isn’t taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. A Reiki Master through an attunement process transfers Reiki to a student. This process opens up the crown, heart and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source. Anyone can learn Reiki and you are not required to have any prior knowledge or experience.
How does Reiki work / heal?
We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in the organs and tissue of the physical body. The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy.
What can Reiki be used for?
Reiki can be used for healing self and others, as well as plants, animals stones etc.
History of Reiki?
Reiki has been traced back thousands of years. Evidence of this form of healing has been found in India, Tibet, China, Egypt, Japan, Greek and Roman cultures. A Japanese monk healer named Dr. Usui, in the late nineteenth century, rediscovered Reiki. It is claimed that he found the formula for contacting a high power that could bestow healing in Indian sutra. It is said that after fasting, meditation and following the directions of the formula for 21days, he was stuck by a beam of light in the forehead and initiated into Reiki. Dr. Usui practiced Reiki until his death, and before his death Dr. Chijaro Hayashi took his place. Dr. Hayashi ran a private clinic in Tokyo until his death in 1941 Dr. Hayashi introduced Reiki to his successor Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who lived in Hawaii USA. She introduced Reiki to the west and trained 22 Reiki masters who have passed it on.....
