Heal the Cause with Reiki Energy
REIKI (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese
word meaning "Universal Life Energy," the vital force that permeates all living
things. Also called Chi, Prana, Life-force, etc., Reiki in particular is part
of the Usui System of Natural Healing, after Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese teacher
who rediscovered Reiki in the mid 1800s.
a vibrational energy technique for improving health by balancing our energy system.
It is a holistic therapy which harmonizes body, mind and spirit, using non-polarized
energy from the centers in the palms of the hands. Reiki is a technique for stress
reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply
of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life. The
energy will work where it's needed, regardless of the person's understanding of
its workings. The more open a person is to receiving a healing, the more healing
energy will be absorbed, and the greater and faster the benefits will be.
The experience of receiving a Reiki treatment feels like
an extremely pleasant and deeply penetrating energy that flows through you and
surrounds you. No special tools are needed, and while receiving a treatment you
are fully-clothed and all you need to do is relax and keep an open mind. Reiki
treats the whole person - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - and is even
beneficial via long distance. Many miraculous results have even been reported.
Every aspect of a person's life, including all relationships and situations, will
be improved once Reiki is applied, because Reiki heals the cause of your problems,
it does not just mask symptoms. It is completely safe and cannot be misused, as
it always creates a healing effect. Additionally, it is well suited to our lifestyle,
as Reiki gives us a fast path to well-being and personal development.
are a number of healing systems that use universal energy, but the Usui System
is unique in its simplicity and gentleness. No special skills are required - just
an open mind and loving heart. Reiki is natural and nonintrusive, as no diagnosis,
medicines, aids or devices are required. As western medicine continues to explore
alternative methods of healing, Reiki is destined to play an important role as
an accepted and valued healing practice. In fact, Reiki is an excellent supplement
to Western Medical treatments.
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.
