What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

“Every existence has healing power. Plants, trees, animals, fish and insects, but especially a human as the lord of creation has remarkable power”... Usui sensei.

Reiki means “universal life force energy”. It is a Japanese word pronounced “ray-key”. Reiki means universal (rei) – life force energy (ki). The Reiki System is an ancient system of energy healing, simple and powerful. Reiki has elements based on Asian health and spiritual practices. The peoples of the eastern part of the world are more familiar with energy work for health benefits and to attain higher levels of spirituality. This life force energy is known by many names – prana, mana, chi, ki, cosmic pulse, etc.
Rather than acting solely on a physical level, Reiki is holistic in its effect - eliciting a healing response on the entire spectrum of ones being - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Anyone can learn to use the Reiki Healing System, it needs no qualifications for eligibility, only the will to learn.
The levels of our being are the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Life force flows within the physical and nourishes the organs and cells of the body. When this life force is disrupted, it causes the functions in one or more organs to lessen drastically thereby preventing them from functioning at their optimum levels. This life force is affected by thoughts and emotions. It becomes disrupted when we accept negative thoughts and emotions about ourselves. These negative thoughts and emotions cause a disruption in the flow of life force. And when the body, mind and soul become imbalanced, illness happens.
Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as emotional trauma, lack of nutrition, high stress lifestyle, negative thoughts like fear, worry, anger, doubt, anxiety, suppressed emotions, lack of love for yourself or others.
If we are to be truly well, our entire being has to be in harmony and balance. Without the intention to be well and the will to do something about it we cannot become well. Reiki empowers us to become whole in all ways. When you have Reiki, you are never again helpless. You become responsible for yourself and your life. Reiki empowers you to take charge of your life, health and complete well-being.

Treatments can help to heal every kind of physical problem such as sports injuries, back problems and serious illness or disease. Reiki can also be used to heal stress, aid weight loss or gain,depression, PMS and all forms of emotional distress. Reiki treatments can help you cope during times of upheaval and change. Reiki is simple enough to use as a way to revitalize yourself and boost your energy levels, or to improve your health and well-being.

Reiki complements other forms of treatment such as allopathy and alternative medicine. It can be used while you are on medication with medicines such as Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, etc. Reiki treatments complement any other kind of treatment or therapy, in both people and animals. Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive hands-on form of healing which can never harm and always benefits those who receive it. Treatments generally last around an hour.
Reiki is not something magical. The basic principle on how Reiki energy heals is very similar to how healing works in acupuncture. We know that every living being has energy within and around the body to be alive. This energy is called Chi (vital energy) and it is vital for the physical body to exist. The physical body usually has problems because the energy does not flow properly. By stimulating the energy to flow properly as it is supposed to, the natural ability of the body to heal itself will be able to function again, and the physical body will recover. Reiki healing is able not only to stimulate the energy to flow properly but also to cleanse the energy within and around the body to speed up the healing process. In the Kirlian photos(*) below, you can see the energy around the fingertip of a patient before and after Reiki healing.
               Before healing
The bright outer layer which normally acts as a protective layer (aura) is gone fading and has a lot of negativity
         After healing
         The energy is cleaner and the aura
          is intact again

Reiki is not based on any religion. Belief in a spiritual or religious system is not required for the effective practice of Reiki. It is universal energy that anyone can learn to channel to heal themselves or others.

" It is not associated with any visible material being.", Takata sensei, "It's an unseen spiritual power that radiates vibration and lifts one into harmony. This power is incomprehensible to man, yet every single living being is receiving its blessings..."
