Reiki is something I know a little about as I am a Certified Reiki Master. Most of the clients I have given treatments to fall asleep, wake up refreshed and just can’t wait until the next visit. My clients have reported seeing colors, floating feelings but mostly intense relaxation. Reiki has many benefits but the one I love the most is when I give a Reiki treatment to a client I also receive Reiki Energy so to me this is a Win-Win!
So What Is 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”. 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. Seems simple, right? Sometimes it isn’t though because life tends to kick us in the butt so a good healthy dose of Reiki will balance us out to help our bodies relax and heal. Reiki also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. One of the great things about Reiki is that one does not have to be ill to experience the benefits.
Life Force Energy
Life force energy is something that flows through all living things. It sustains and nourishes our bodies and it can be used to support and increase the body’s natural self-healing ability. This can speed up recovery from illness and injury. Life force energy can be used to boost our physical vitality and energy levels and to support us and heal us on the emotional and psychological levels as well.
When the flow of the “Life Force Energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way. Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives awesome results.

How Reiki Energy Works
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our “life force” is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and wellbeing.
The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. By the use of the Reiki Power Symbols the practitioner channels the Universal Life Force energy allowing it to flow where is needed to bring the energy centers into alignment. You can be creative with Reiki, combine different healing modalities with Reiki and use what you think will be best for you and for your highest good. You may want to combine color, crystals, Chakras, Gentle Music and Sounds, Meditation, with Reiki and see what it brings you and most importantly, honest and loving intent by the practitioner is mandatory.
The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. He/She plays an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the person receiving Reiki to manifest harmony and balance in their own life.
