What is Reiki?
Reiki is a method of working with Universal Energy for healing and inner growth. This energy comes from your Higher Self (or God, Source, Universe). It is an intelligent energy, one that doesn’t need to be guided as it goes to where it’s needed most. Reiki practitioners are nothing but the channels of that energy, allowing it to flow from the Universe to the recipient through the power of pure intention. In its essence Reiki is Love, Light and Healing.
How Reiki works?
Reiki is based on holistic medicine belief that disease comes from inner imbalance between mind, body and soul. By lifting energy blocks and regulating energy flow through all meridians (energy channels) it allows the harmony back into person’s body. The practitioner receives Reiki energy from the universe and transfers is by laying hands on the patient. Both practitioner and the receiver can feel the energy flow in a form of warmth, cool, or gentle tingling.
Reiki can be also sent in distance healing sessions and can be used on animals, plants and any other form of life.
Benefits of Reiki:
- harmonizes your body’s energy
- awakens your own self-healing powers
- relaxes and alleviates stress
- speeds up recovery after injuries and surgeries
- assists in healing mental and emotional problems
Each session is individual and depends on the needs of the person. It lasts from 30 to 60 minutes. Patient can either lie down on massage table or sit in a chair and is fully dressed. Reiki is transferred by gentle lay of hands on different parts of patient’s body. Reiki is a non-invasive method and is not harmful in any way.
Q & E
Is Reiki dangerous?
There is no danger in Reiki and it can do you no harm. The Energy comes from the Universe, source of all that is good. It may not work exactly as you expect but it heals according to your higher good.
Do I need to believe in Reiki to be healed?
No, you don’t have to believe, as the energy flows through you whether you believe in it or not. It is recommended thought to be open and free of judgment as the resistance will slow down the healing process.
