What IS Reiki?
REI is the Japanese word meaning ‘universal’ and is also a reference to the higher dimension of light and the soul.
KI means ‘vital life force energy’ which interpenetrates and connects all.
Reiki is pronounced Ray -Key and can be ‘learnt’ by finding a Reiki Master who can attune you to the energy, but it is much more than just training, a manual, class or seminar. It is the connection with the ever flowing light energy of the universe.
It is also ‘received’ as a treatment in many salons and holistic therapy centres.
Reiki has become more widely used and understood in the West over the past 20 years although it was rediscovered in the East in the late 1800’s. It is a gentle way of moving energy through the body to enable self healing and the healing of others, pets and even vitalising food, plants and situations. The possibilities are endless and the more people that are attuned to this beautiful energy, the healthier and more calm we will all become, able to deal with out every day lives much more easily.
Ailments can be treated and emotional imbalances causing stress can be reduced. Detoxification is increased, so Reiki can help greatly with the removal of toxins from Chemotherapy and anaesthesia. Reiki is unconditionally healing for the body and mind and will flow to wherever is needed within the body.
There are many different ways of applying healing to yourself and others Reiki is just one of them. All these methods use the same universal energy. The energy that your belief system may understand as God, Buddha, The Source, even ‘the Universe’ are the same energy, although the ways in which they are applied, and the theories concerning them, differ greatly. The basic conditions required for making use of this energy are also very different. Some of the systems take years of training and practice, others require long drawn out exercises to be performed before energy can be channelled.
As a treatment it is extremely relaxing and balancing, and most salons now offer Reiki in half hour and hour sessions. Sometimes it will be included in Aromatherapy, massage and in my clinic it flows naturally when I do La Stone Therapy.
Reiki is the greatest teacher for those who are willing to listen and learn. Much more will be gained from your experience with Reiki and life, than ever could be written or described. If you move into the natural flow of this healing, balancing and revealing energy, your life can take on a deeper meaning.
Reiki is the force behind the Yin and the Yang. It is the whole and complete energy. This unique attribute enables Reiki to be used at any time, in any place, and any condition. This vital flowing energy is the basis for the continuity of life as we know it.
I have been teaching students for over eight years and I have been treating clients with Reiki for much longer. It is a beautiful way to balance and heal the mind body and soul. If you are looking to embark with your own Reiki training check the Workshop Prices and contact me for more details. Reiki Attunements are taken in three levels, although not all three are essential to your development. Workshops are normally a whole day, or longer when you reach Master Level, and as your ‘Master’ I am always on hand to guide and assist you on your way. Namaste.
