Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation.
Dr. Mikao Usui first experienced it in Japan in the 1900s. But has been practiced thousands of years prior.
It is known as “laying on hands” on the subject. And has really a very simple yet powerful form of healing.
The word Reiki is derived from the Japanese words Rei (universal) and Ki (life energy or life force).
It is believed that as long as there is life energy or life force in anything then it is alive. Once this life energy is gone then one dies. So if your life energy is depleted, low or experiences restriction of its flow then one is more prone to illness or disease. But if your life energy is flowing freely you are less likely to have issues.
This is significant as the higher your life energy/force is the more support you have for your body on all levels. It affects not just physical aspects but reaches our emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
Although Reiki has a spiritual component to it it is not a religion and has no dogma. In fact there is nothing you need to believe to benefit from it. It will still work whether you believe in it or not.
In my years I have studied Reiki the one message that is consistent and true for me is that the pure Reiki energy or life force has its own intelligence. It will know exactly where to go in your body to where the root of the problem or issue lies and know what to do. It can never do harm and it knows exactly what and how much one needs. It does this by connecting to your Higher Self or intelligence.
It is not then the practitioner that is the true healer but rather between the Reiki and the client receiving it. It is purely a channeled healing!
