What is Reiki?
Reiki healing is defined as a spiritually guided life energy. Reiki energy guides itself with its own wisdom, rather than requiring the direction of the practitioner. Reiki channels energy to the client to assist and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Where did Reiki Healing come from?
Reiki was introduced in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui.
Master Usui taught thousands of people the Reiki healing method during his lifetime. Reiki Healing spread to the United States starting in Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s. Reiki healing is now a worldwide healing method.
The word Rei means universal. This a general interpretation but is a definition many have accepted. Japanese ideograms have many levels of meaning. Reiki can be understood to mean higher knowledge or spiritual/God-consciousness. It is a god consciousness that guides life energy the ki in Reiki.
Ki: Life Force Energy
The word Ki describes the energy that is the unseen life force in your body and everywhere. It is this universal energy that penetrates everywhere uniting all of the manifestations of the universe, visible or invisible. In Japan this energy is referred to as “Ki”, in China this energy is referred to as “Chi” or “Qi” and in Sanskrit, the energy is known as “Prana”.
Reiki healing is a natural, non-evasive Japanese energy healing system that restores and balances the body’s “Ki” energy centers. By balancing the body’s energy centers to a healthy natural state, a Reiki healing session allows toxins or existing conflicts within the mind, body, and spirit to be cleansed and balanced. The result is more health and wellness.
Reiki healing is a technique that channels energy from the practitioner to the client to assist and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself. As improvement develops, the natural processes of renewal are improved and more effective, ultimately opening up more of the body’s life energy flow. It is this universal life energy that is within us and surrounds us, and without it, we cease to exist.
The real gift of Reiki is stress relief.
Reiki healing works on different levels, the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritually enhancing everything in life. One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities (immune system), aids in better sleep and improves and maintains health.
Before my surgery, Margo was there with me at the hospital and did some Reiki/Energy work on me. I was very nervous, waiting for the surgery to get started. I felt a change in my energy and in my attitude. I have never had an experience quite like this with Reiki in the past. I wanted to thank you for what you did for me, Margo. Your Reiki energy is amazing.
