Reiki for Spiritual & Physical Wellness
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation 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.
The word Reiki comes from Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is “spiritually guided life force energy. “A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
If you observe an Energy Healing session, it might not seem like anything is happening. But when you experience it, you will know different. While the effects vary from individual to individual, most people experience deep relaxation and you may even fall asleep. The sensation felt by a recipient is usually a deep feeling of warmth or cool and comfort. Others feel a mild tingle, throbbing or pulsing sensation. Some experience a sensation of “floating” or of feeling very light. Some people don’t feel any physical sensation but describe mental or emotional changes, such as a sense of calmness or peacefulness. Nearly everyone experiences Energy Healing as deeply relaxing. Results are sometimes very subtle and gentle. Some say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calmness and well-being, and a deep restful sleep. It is possible to experience powerful sensations or emotions during and/or after a session. The practitioner will want to know about all of your experiences/sensations to the degree that you are comfortable sharing them. A session creates a wonderful, glowing radiance that is deeply relaxing and includes many “healing” effects for both the client and practitioner, including physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
