What is Reiki?
Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy!
Reiki is an intelligent energy that will find its way to the highest good and activates the bodies own ability to self heal. The only one who can heal you is yourself.
We are each filled with universal life force energy. This energy is the essence of our being, our consciousness, our soul. As the flow of life force energy moves through our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies, it can become unbalanced, stagnant, or blocked.
Dis-ease is our reaction to unbalanced life force energy in our physical, emotional, or spiritual body. This unbalanced energy can manifest as physical problems (dis-ease) or life patterns and cycles that keep us from growing. In the physical body, dis-ease manifests as headaches, back pain, arthritis, or cancer and so on. In the emotional body, it manifests as anger, rage, phobias, depression, and hate. In the spiritual body, it manifests as narrow-mindedness, disrespect for life and nature, or materialism.
Visualize your life force energy as a fast-moving stream. This stream flows in the path of least resistance. If a large stone is placed in the center of the stream, the water must go around the stone. The flow of the stream has moved out of its natural path and become unbalanced.
Now consider the very first time you felt invalidated in some way. It was as if a large stone had been placed in the stream of your life flow. If you are invalidated again, another stone is added to your stream, and your life force energy must yield and flow around the larger blockage. These blockages can grow, instance-by-instance, stone after stone, until your body starts to manifest these blockages as dis-ease. For some, these stones have been blocking our streams of life energy since early childhood. Changing these blockages would mean changing how we perceive the world around us, even how we perceive ourself. For some of us, there is a level of denial in which we know there is something wrong, but we deny that it belongs to us. Others can see these blockages in their physical, emotional, or spiritual bodies, but they are unsure how to take the stones out of the stream and release the stagnant energy so it will flow again and bring changes to their lives
Another way of removing blocks is though the use of Reiki, which is a form of hands-on-healing. The Japanese word Reiki means “universal life force energy.” During a Reiki treatment, healing energy brought in from the universe runs thought the healer’s hands and is transmitted to the person to be healed. Starting at the top of the head of the person to be healed, the healer moves his or her hands in a number of positions. Each position is maintained for three to five minutes or until the healer feels that the area has been cleared. The healer then continues working down the rest of the body, clearing stagnant energy wherever it lurks. Reiki is an excellent tool, especially when dealing with physical problems, in that it heals down to the cellular level.
