The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. Rei can be defined as the Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe. Rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything, both animate and inanimate. Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans.
The great value of Reiki is that because it is guided by the Higher Intelligence, it knows exactly where to go and how to respond to restrictions in the flow of Ki. It can work directly in the unconscious parts of the mind/body which contain negative Ki-inhibiting thoughts and feelings and eliminate them. As Reiki flows through a sick or unhealthy area, it breaks up and washes away any negative thoughts or feelings lodged in the unconscious mind/body thus allowing a normal healthy flow of Ki to resume. As this happens, the unhealthy physical organs and tissues become properly nourished with Ki and begin functioning in a balanced healthy way thus replacing illness with health.
The goal of Reiki Energy Healing is to provide you with the tools that you need to fully heal yourself and your loved ones. Reiki is a beautiful, gentle form of healing that uses Universal Life Force Energy to remove any blocks caused by physical, mental, emotional or spiritual distress. Once these blocks are removed the body is then better able to heal itself naturally.
A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing brilliance that flows through and around you.
Reiki treats the person completely, the whole body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects including relaxation and also feel at peace, safety and harmony. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is simple and natural, and it is a safe method of spiritual knowledge, each person can develop and use.
What does the session consist of?
A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair.
Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands should never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor there do any pressure.
Additional placements on the limbs can be done as needed (for example, if there is an injury or surgical scar), and some practitioners routinely do so. The Reiki practitioner can hold her hands just off the body if needed (for example, in the presence of an open wound or burn), and some practitioners always offer Reiki in this way.
What might I experience?
The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the practitioner's hands, but sometimes the practitioner's hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner's hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.” “I think I fell asleep.” “I can’t believe how hot your hands got!” “I feel more relaxed than even after a massage.” “My headache is gone.” These are some of things people typically say after a Reiki session.
