Reiki (pronounced ray - key)- - - Rei means "Universal" and refers to the spiritual dimension of the soul. Ki means "The vital life force energy that flows through all living things." When combined, it's meaning is "Universal Life Force Energy." A laying-on of hands healing technique thousands of years old, it is thought to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice that was rediscovered in the late 1800's by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. It is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be easily learned by anyone.
Reiki is powerful healing energy and is one of the few forms of healing that can be used for oneself or others.
The Universe, the space around us, is filled with endless and inexhaustible energy. It is this universal, pristine and productive source of power and energy that also keeps us alive. Reiki is this natural healing energy, and it flows through the hands of the Reiki channel in a powerful and concentrated form. The energy is channeled through the hands of a practitioner into the body of a receiver. Because it is a Universal, God-given power, Reiki belongs to anyone who is ready to receive the gift of healing hands. Reiki is effective wherever hands touch, because Reiki hands radiate healing energy at any time, in any place.
Reiki supports medical treatments such as massages, foot reflexology, acupressure, acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, etc. Reiki brings the body and mind into an even balance and works on all levels: the physical, spiritual, emotional and soul level. Reiki encourages self-healing, strengthens body and soul, opens blocks, balances chakras, rebuilds harmony and flows in unlimited quantity. It is a channeled healing, therefore the Reiki practitioner's energies are never depleted. Additionally, because the healing Reiki energy is flowing through the practitioner during a treatment, both client and practitioner receive the benefits. For this reason, giving a treatment always increases one's energy and leaves one surrounded with loving feelings of well-being.
Reiki is not a religion. It beholds no doctrines, creeds or contradictions to the Universal Laws of Consciousness and Love. No matter where the person may be at a certain point in their life, Reiki will harmonize and embrace their philosophical centerpoint, adding to it the Divine Presence. Once an individual is attuned to Reiki through initiations, they are permanently linked without the need of conscious alteration of the mind, either through meditation, prayer or imaging. Simply placing one's hands on oneself, or another person allows the energy to flow through the individual. It fills the Reiki practitioner's body first and then flows out through the practitioner's hands into the individual who is receiving the healing.
Reiki is energy from God and is an extremely powerful healing energy. It does not conflict with any other health care, but rather enhances it's results. It does not interfere with traditional medical treatment, but facilitates benefits. Reiki speeds the healing process and provides a source of restoring energy while one is ill, under medical treatment, or in recovery.
Reiki healing is a pure energy form. When it is combined with the sincere desire of the healee, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their emotional and spiritual consciousness, a total healing can occur.
Reiki is a wonderful tool for use at any moment, any time, anywhere for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy. In short, Reiki is a holistic self-help technique for directing natural life force energy.
