Reiki is a healing modality which balances the energies of the body for stress reduction, pain management, and relaxation.
Reiki energy is vital life force or universal energy. Life force energy is the energy which animates all living things. As long as something is alive it has vital life force energy running through it and surrounding it. When something dies this energy departs and is no longer available to give life to the organism. If the energy is low, or if there is restriction in its flow, you can be more vulnerable to concerns and/or illness. When life force energy is flowing freely and unencumbered you is more likely to feel healthy and alive.
In different cultures life force energy is named differently. The Chinese place great importance on life force energy or Chi. In Reiki, a Japanese technique, life force energy is Ki. Prana is also a term used for this vital, life force energy. There are a variety of terms used for this energy depending upon the culture and all healers use some form of healing energy.
Reiki is a special kind of healing energy that can only be channeled by someone who has been attuned to it. The attunement process is both a spiritual experience as well as a formal introduction to this healing energy.
During an in-person Reiki session the practitioner places their hands on or around the recipients body helping to facilitate the energy flow, paying particular attention to Meridians, Chakras and the Aura of the body. By scanning the body a practitioner can feel or sense disruptions or imbalances in the flow of energy is each of the energy systems.
Our meridians are pathways within the body through which subtle energy flows. Each meridian is associated with an organ or system and supplies each with life force energy.
Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk, referring to the wheels of energy throughout the body. Chakra energy corresponds to nerve centers of the body and major organs and plays a role in maintaining our psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being.
The aura contains your energies and is a sphere of multilayers of energy emanating and surrounding the body. The aura interacts with its surroundings and simultaneously acts as a filter and as an antenna bringing energy to and from the chakras. When you feel happy, alive and spirited your aura energy can fill the room. But when you feel down, sad, or despondent your aura closes in around you isolating you from the world.
Reiki sessions help the body release stress and tension to bring a deep state of relaxation and allow an environment for our bodies to heal. Because Reiki works on our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual layers it promotes health by enhancing every part of our lives.
Reiki can also be done long distantly, without the client and practitioner in the same location. Reiki practitioners use a special technique to bridge the gap allowing Reiki energy to be transmitted to the client.
