Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. The word comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize.
Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-invasive form of hands-on healing. Reiki healers claim to channel Ki (energy) into “diseased” individuals for rebalancing. They differ from acupuncturists in that they do not try to unblock a person’s Ki, but to channel the Ki of the universe so that the person heals. This energy healing method is very popular among Modern Mystics and New Age spiritualists, who are very fond of “attunements,” “harmonies,” and “balances.
The key is to understand that Reiki will enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels. It is Universal life force energy, that which sustains life and promotes healing in all living things. Practitioners believe it is important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others.
Since the word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy, it (strictly speaking) refers to the energy and not the specific techniques taught by Reiki Masters. Its limits seem to be in the recipient’s willingness to cast off old habits and patterns, to accept change and to accept healing. The other meaning for healing, used in the practice of Reiki as well as other related areas, is the return to greater wholeness. Over time, the healing of the world’s ills will be accomplished and, with Reiki in the hands of everyone, that day will come much more quickly. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.)
