What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. In person, it is carried out directly when you receive Reiki energy from an attuned healer in person else the attuned healer can channelize the Reiki energy to you from any distance to give you healing which has some phenomenal impacts and results.

Reiki healing is based on the scientific idea that an unseen life force and energy flows through all living forms as well the universe which aids in its precise and systematic functioning since immemorial times and is the energy that keeps us alive and going. If our life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It treats the whole person including the body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing and mind and mental health.

The universe operates on energy. Each animate or inanimate object possesses a reservoir of energy that affects it and all around it. The shift in energy on any object in the world would always have a ripple effect, the simplest example of this is: the phases of the moon and their effect on tides. The Reiki practitioner channelizes the energy around you through her attuned body and hands and is capable of directing it potently to the person, his mind or his body part that needs to be energised, healed and balanced to function back to its optimum.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual, mental and physical healing and self-improvement that anyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and problem and always creates a beneficial effect. The process may require few sessions for complete healing. It also works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no doctrine, and there is nothing specific that you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.

Reiki energy is a subtle energy. It is different from electricity or chemical energy or other kinds of physical energy. It comes from the Higher Power, which exists in a higher dimension than the physical world we are familiar with. When viewed clairvoyantly, Reiki energy appears to come down from above and enters the top of the practitioner’s head after which it flows through the body and out of the hands. It appears to flow this way because of our perspective. However, the true source of Reiki energy is within ourselves. This does not mean that we use our personal energy when we do Reiki, but that the energy is coming from a mystical part of ourselves that is connected to an infinite supply of healing energy.

Reiki helps you. In more ways than one.

  • One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities (immune system), aids in better sleep and improves and maintains health.
  • Reiki helps bring about inner peace and harmony. It can be a valuable tool in the quest for spiritual growth.
  • Reiki also balances the mind and emotions. Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity.
  • Reiki offers relief from emotional distress and sorrow. Reiki helps in the grieving process. It cleans and clears the emotions, preventing them from being so draining and offers perspective.
  • On the physical level, Reiki helps to relieve pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica – just to name a few. It also helps with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia.
  • Reiki speeds up recovery from surgery or long-term illness. As it helps in adjusting to medicine/treatment, it also tends to reduce side-effects.
  • Reiki can be an effective way to treat immediate problems, such as physical or mental illness (recovery from surgery, but regular treatments can also improve overall health). By helping to maintain a state of physical and emotional balance, Reiki can not only treat problems but perhaps even prevent them from ever developing.
  • Reiki is very beneficial for children and pets with all physical and behavioural issues.
