Reiki is a spiritual practice of natural healing. It utilizes Universal life force energy to potentiate healing and balance within and around the person receiving treatment.
How Does Reiki Work?: Our bodies have Ki or Qi or Chi – the Universal life force – flowing through them. Our vital energy keeps us psychically, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually in alignment within and without our self. In order for one to be in a healthy state of being, Ki/Chi/Qi has to flow freely in the body and emanate outwards.
What Happens in a Reiki Session?: In a Reiki treatment, a Reiki Practitioner uses his hands to send and transmit the Universal life force to those people, places, and things in need of Energy Balancing and Alignment. This allows those people, places, and things to either regain or maintain a healthy state. It is similar to other healing practices, such as the laying of hands or Pranic healing, both of which use the hands and Life force energy for healing.
How Is Reiki Transmitted?: The Reiki practitioner does this by placing their hands either directly on or above the person receiving the healing session. This is done to facilitate the transfer of the healing universal energy from the Reiki practitioner to the one receiving the treatment. Reiki stimulates the receiver’s own healing energy. The receiver’s body uses the Universal life force to accomplish self-healing.
How Does Reiki Help when Ki Is Low?: Reiki can also be used effectively when a person’s Ki/Chi/Qi is low. A low level of Ki/Chi/Qi can result in a condition of stress, tension and illness – mentally, physically, and spiritually. When Ki/Chi/Qi is balanced and flows in a high optimum level, a person will be in a healthy, happy balanced state. This means one is healthy and happy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This health and happiness is Reiki’s purpose.
Is Reiki an Alternative Medical Practice?: Reiki is considered both an alternative medical practice and a spiritual healing practice. Through the practitioner’s hands, both healing energy and vibrations are passed to the recipient; this facilitates balance and harmony in that person.
Does Reiki Treat More Than the Body?: This healing energy removes any negative energy or blockages that would otherwise impede the healthy flow of Ki/Chi/Qi both internally and externally in the person receiving the Reiki treatment. When Reiki is given to a person, it treats the person’s bio field (aura) – as well as the physical body – to return the person to a state of balance both inwards and outwards.
Is One Session Enough?: When the receiver of a Reiki session is in a relaxed state, the mind and body allow the healing energy in to be realigned. The person is then returned to a healthy, balanced state. Some people who undergo Reiki treatments notice a change after one session; others may need a series to feel a change in their state of being – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
