Easily Share the Benefits of Reiki With Others





Reiki is an ancient healing practice, combining two Japanese words Rei and Ki, which together mean Universal Life Energy. Rei, represents the all-knowing or wisdom, and Ki, the unseen non-physical energy. Essentially, Ki is our spirit. Ki is obtained from the food we ingest, from sunshine, sleep and the air we breathe. The combination of all these components formulates our spirit.

The objective of practicing Reiki is to aid in the harmonization of the body, mind and spirit, by allowing the life force to flow freely through us and around us in our aura. Life force is receptive to our thoughts and feelings, therefore, when we acknowledge negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves, our life force is disrupted. When it’s disrupted, the fundamental functions of organs and tissues in our physical body are diminished. When Ki energy is low, a person is susceptible to becoming ill.

This is where Reiki is utilized.. Since Reiki is guided by Higher Intelligence, it knows exactly where to go and seeks out the disorder in the energy field. It charges these parts of the energy field with positive energy, causing the negative energy to break apart and fall away.

Reiki is an uncomplicated treatment process. The practitioner simply places their hands on areas of the body, or hovers them for certain positions, and proceeds to transfer positive energy to the individual. Recipients often describe receiving Reiki as a feeling of warmth, or tingling in the area of focus, others feel it as energy. Reiki heals on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, with the ultimate goal of returning the body to equilibrium. It balances the energies within the body, strengthens the immune system, clears and rids toxins, relaxes and reduces stress, and aids in meta-cognition.

Believe it or not, Reiki has served in the healing process of nearly every known illness and injury ranging from severe problems such as multiple sclerosis, heart disease, mental illness and cancer, to the less serious like the flu, sore throat, insomnia and poor memory. If anything else, it is a valuable practice to be used concurrently with modern medicine, as it reduces negative side effects, shortens healing time, and reduces or eliminates pain.

Of course in order for Reiki to be effective, one needs to open their mind to such a non-physical practice. Western culture is so conditioned to accepting grave side effects from prescription medication; this is a societal norm of ours.Our doctors are not educated on alternative practices that will achieve the same, if not better, results, thus they
don’t advocate such treatment. With Reiki healing however, it provides a beneficial and positive alternative for the patient being treated.

    Great post, I am going to give this a try in the future. Is Ki any way related to Chi?

    Yes, they are similar. Chi is from the Chinese system, where Reiki is from the Japanese healing system. Chi (pronounced chee), is the Chinese word used to describe "the natural energy of the Universe."

    This energy, though called "natural," is spiritual or supernatural, and is part of a metaphysical, not an empirical, belief system. New Agers often refer to this energy as subtle energy. Chi is thought to permeate all things, including the human body.

    Thank you for your comment.

    Interesting post. I was wondering if reiki has ever been used to treat anxiety disorders? It sounds like it might help with relaxation of nerves at least. I think I'll try it.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the useful post.Reiki healing is the most promising and positive way to benefit for health. The positive energies that one will be attracting while undergoing the process of Reiki will change the way one feels, acts and thinks. Alongside these benefits is eradicating the pain, anger, agony or stress that you feel from the day’s work.
