What is Reiki Healing
What is Reiki Healing
Reiki is a holistic healing and relaxation energy therapy, a natural healing method that heals on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
It is an effective treatment for reducing pain and stress, recovering from injury or surgery, tackling emotional issues and has proved very effective in healing past events and creating future wishes.
In the practice of Reiki, the life force energy that surrounds us every day in the universe, sustaining life and promoting healing in all living things is channelled by a qualified practitioner to heal mind, body and soul. This healing then works to assist us in regaining harmony and wholeness, addressing the whole person, realigning our energies physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
REI (pronounced “ray”) is the Japanese word for spiritual or sacred,
KI (pronounced “key”) is Japanese for “vital life force energy that flows through all living things”.
The founder of the Reiki healing system Dr Mikao Usui (1865-1926) rediscovered the ancient healing practice of Reiki late in the 19th century. Reiki originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice over three thousand years ago and had almost been forgotten. It was brought to the West in 1937 via attuned practitioners in Hawaii, and is passed on from one person to another through initiation, teachings and defined forms of practice as a way of healing of self and others. The ability to practice Reiki is received only through the tradition of attunement empowerment with a Reiki Master.
How does Reiki healing work?
A Reiki practitioner is attuned to the Reiki universal life force energy flow by a Master teacher, and then Reiki can be used to treat the self and others. Becoming attuned to Reiki energy is very much like creating a pre-set button on a radio – once attuned to Reiki energy, a person can always access it whenever they wish to and channel it wherever it is needed, much like an antenna moves sound waves from one space to another. Reiki is not the Practitioners energy but a universal energy.
Can Reiki healing be sent to someone distantly?
Reiki may be sent distantly to a client. It works perfectly the is no time or distance when it comes to Reiki Energy, as it can be sent anywhere at any time. All the receiver needs to do is accept the energy and let the reiki do the rest.I sent Reiki to my clients in gold energy sphere that can then be accessed when the Client is ready.
What can I expect to feel during a Reiki treatment?
As Reiki energy flows through you, a letting go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings and a state of peace and well-being can be experienced. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
You can expect at the very least, to feel deeply relaxed, calm and peaceful while the Reiki energy flows through and surrounds you. Having said this, no two of my clients experience the exact same feelings.
Some say they can feel intense heat or cool breeze radiating from my hands, gentle waves of energy through the body, heat surges through various parts of their body, tingles and twitching, gentle rocking sensations, swirls of colour or coloured light behind the eyelids.
I personally experience an intense feeling of total relaxation and connectedness during and after a treatment. It is quite common for clients to fall asleep during a treatment as your relaxation deepens.
The best advice is to expect nothing and allow the results and benefits to unfold.
Some people don’t feel anything at all during a session, then realise a day or two later that those aches and pains are diminished or gone, and note that they are feeling more positive about life, calmer, less stressed, smiling more as the days go on.
Every person is different, and some need regular treatment to alleviate their symptoms or to maintain their wellbeing.
Can Reiki heal the past?
As Reiki will go to wherever it is needed, it can even be sent back to heal past emotional hurts and trauma. Reiki can be sent to past and present issues, events and situations that are hanging over you, and will help to ease them in time. Reiki will always work for the greater good.
What are the “Reiki principles” about?
Reiki is not a religion or belief system, and there are no distinctions on the basis of race, class, sex, belief or sexual orientation.
