Here is a little insight to what Reiki is
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
It is administered by laying on hands or hands held a small distance above the body.
Living organisms emanate an energy field around them this is called " life force energy" which flows through us and is closely linked to what causes us to be alive.
If ones " 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 is made of two Japanese words Rei which means " the higher power" or " Universal" and Ki which is " life force energy" so Reiki is actually Universal life force energy.
How Does It Work
It is believed that life force flows within the physical body through pathways called Chakra's and Meridians.
Life force is beneficial to the organs and cells of the body supporting them in their vital functions, when the life force is disrupted it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs. The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings, it becomes disrupted when we accept either consciously or unconsciously negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves.
This affects the energy field and causes a disruption in the flow of life force, this diminishes the vital function of organs and cells of the physical body.
Reiki heals by concentrating positive life force energy around and through the affected parts of the energy field rebalancing and charging them with positive energy.
Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
Reiki is not strictly for adults, it can also be given to children and animals. It can help calm energetic or restless children, it can help reduce stress in nervous animals as well as clam over energetic animals. When giving Reiki to either they let you know they have had enough simply by moving away. I have found it very helpful for my teenage son when he was going through a stressful time, and I also give it to my two boxer dogs whom are very, very energetic.
There is nothing Reiki can't help with whether it be a physical ailment or emotional blockage, it is also very safe for the receiver and giver. Reiki can also be sent remotely all the receiver has to do is relax and accept it at the time it is being sent to them.
