Reiki

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means 'God's Wisdom or the Higher Power' and Ki which is 'life force energy'. So Reiki is actually 'spiritually guided life force energy'.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction that also promotes healing. It is administered by 'laying on hands' and is based on the idea that an unseen 'life force energy' flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki helps to heal body, mind and spirit. It does this by accelerating the body's own ability to heal itself physically and by opening the mind to the emotional and spiritual causes of disease and pain. The flow of energy is experienced mostly as heat by both the person channeling the energy and those receiving, but it may also be experienced as a fine tingling, a tremor, and in cases of extreme need a deep chill. Most people having a Reiki treatment become aware of tension dropping away while the ever chattering mind becomes still. This gives rise to a deep sense of relaxation and an overall sense of well being.

The ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. A practitioner is initiated by a series of attunements, given by a Reiki master. The attunements open the flow of universal healing energy. Reiki practitioners also use the Reiki Sacred symbols

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
