Reiki is alternative healing, but maybe you are not familiar with it. Don’t worry. You are not alone.
To start with, Reiki is alternative healing associated with natural holistic healing or a healing as an accompianment to pharmaceutical drugs and medical surgeries.
Reiki is a form of energy healing in which a participant serves as a channel for Universal Life Force. The Reiki practitioner opens himself/herself as a channel for an energy that comes from a higher source to aid in healing or correcting a person’s aura. This is believed to be beneficial for the body, mind, and soul.
Reiki got its principle from the thought that the universe has an energy that gives form, structure, and health. This force is also called Chi within Chinese medicine. It is said to be capable of healing anything because its energy comes from the basic fundamental levels of reality.
It also teaches that the energy flows are affected by the thoughts of a Reiki practitioner. For instance, if he/she thinks of negative things, this will manifest diseases and unfortunate events. If he/she thinks the other way around, good health and fortune will come. These are facilitated to help the patients believe whatever positive thoughts they have in their minds.
To have an idea of how the healing process is conducted, here is an example: Usually, the healer performs some hand rituals and eventually places it over a sick person. Then she will perform some massage from mid-air, and she will make some scooping actions like she is smoothing a bedspread. This movement is intended to correct the person’s aura. There are other Reiki practitioners who simply place their hands directly to the patient and keep it there as long as necessary.
Some Reiki practitioners are also capable of healing from a distance. This is known as Reiki remote healing. The healer may ask for an object that will represent the ill person and they will treat that said object just like she is treating the person. They are also capable of healing and blessing objects such as cars, homes or even laptops.
Reiki is definitely a different healing process compared with others. It is up to you if you will believe in its effectivenss.
