What Is Reiki?
Reiki is Japanese for universal life-force energy. A divine, infinite intelligence guides the healing energy during a Reiki session. Reiki is an ancient healing modality that promotes healing and well-being. Reiki can be sent in person using a hands on method, or sent remotely. During an in-person session, the client relaxes fully clothed on a massage table as the Reiki practitioner is guided where to channel universal life-force energy to different areas of the body. Remote sessions are just as effective. The Reiki practitioner is able to connect energetically with the client to facilitate the healing.
Dr. Mikao Usui discovered this loving healing modality while on a quest for enlightenment sometime around 1920. Dr. Usui then passed this gift down to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, who then instructed Madame Hawayo Takata. Amy Z. Rowland writes in her book, “The Complete Book of Traditional Reiki”, Dr. Hayashi and Madame Takata established the Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho method of Reiki, or better known as traditional Reiki. The Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho method is the most widely taught method in the world today.
In my personal experience, Reiki is a loving, unlimited, universal, intuitive healing energy. Reiki balances the energetic body, which has a direct effect on your overall well-being. After a Reiki session you feels more grounded and centered. Your thinking is more clear, and you are able to make better decisions. I’ve witnessed my clients go through magical transformations. As a practitioner, I’ve used this universal life energy to relieve physical ailments and emotional distress, and to remove energetic blockages that prevent you from being the highest expression of who you are meant to be. Reiki, when called for, can help when transitioning out of our bodies. No matter where you are on your life journey, Reiki can bring balance and move you along with grace and ease.
Reiki, and other energy healing modalities, are no longer confined to the metaphysical community. Over the last decade there have been numerous studies on the benefits of Reiki and energy healing. Reiki is being used in hospitals, pain management clinics, nursing homes and in hospice care. Today, more than ever, you find a whole array of traditional medical practitioners being trained in the healing art of Reiki, including medical doctors, nurses, acupuncturist, massage therapist, and chiropractors.
How wonderful that we are waking up to the fact, or, more accurately, remembering that we are body, mind and soul. When we treat the energetic body the effects flow to all ares of or life, including the physical, emotional and spiritual body, and in turn reverberates throughout the universe.
