What is Reiki?
In Reiki a holistic approach is taken; meaning the Mind/Emotions, Body and Spirit/Soul are all interconnected and what happens to one of them affects the rest of them.
Reiki is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction and promotes relaxation and aids in the overall healing process. Reiki comes from two Japanese words.
The first is Rei meaning Spirit/God/Source/Universal Wisdom; and the second is Ki meaning Universal Life Force Energy (also known as Qi/Chi, Prana, Ka, Huna, etc.). This loosely translates in English as being Divinely Guided Life Force Energy.
Health comes from the free flowing state of our Universal Life Force Energy and when our Life Force Energy becomes blocked, stuck, stagnant or trapped we begin manifesting dis-ease. Imagine a dam holding the water back; the water or your Life Force Energy becomes clogged, stagnant and unable to move forward in its intended path. Reiki works to remove the dam so your Life Force Energy can begin flowing again in its natural rhythm and harmony, which promotes balance, peace and relaxation.
Our Universal Life Force Energy is effected by our thoughts and feelings, the environment in which we live, the people in our lives, the traumas we've endured, etc. When we have to many negative thoughts, hang around to many negative people, engage in negative behaviors/habits our Life Force Energy is effected negatively and that's when the illnesses start occurring. When we think positive thoughts, hang around uplifting and inspiring people and engage in healthy habits or energy naturally flows and we are happy and healthy.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature it is not a religion. There is no dogma and it does not require you to believe a certain thing in order to benefit from all its wonderful healing properties. The Divine Intelligence within Reiki will not allow for it to be used to harm others; it only heals.
