Reiki is a form of alternative therapy, commonly referred to as “energy healing”. Reiki has been around for thousands of years. The most commonly used and well known Reiki system is Usui Reiki that emerged in Japan in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui.
The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) is a Japanese word which means Universal Life Force Energy. This is the energy that is present in all living things, it comes from the cosmos and the connecting elements of the Earth. The kanji (Japanese alphabet) definition of “Rei” means universal, from God, or unlimited and “ki” is the life force energy which flows through all living things. “Ki” is the same as “chi” in Chinese, or “prana” in Sanskrit it is the universal life force that emanates from every living thing.
To put it simply Rei- Universal Ki- Life Force Energy
Reiki- To balance Universal Life Force Energy.
Reiki involves the laying of hands above or on the body. The Reiki practitioner channels the energy and targets the energy fields and chakras around the body, to move stagnant energy. The Reiki will go to where it is needed most, as it has its own intelligence it is able to assist the areas that are in need of this vital life force energy.
Energy can become blocked in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. When our energy centres are blocked and not vibrating at the correct frequency, then we are more prone to illness or lowered resistance. A Reiki healing will help to restore the flow of energy and remove these blocks within the body, allowing us to balance and restore our personal frequency by releasing what no longer serves us.
When our energy bodies are aligned and flowing this has an overall benefit to our spiritual, emotional and physical wellbeing.
