What is Reiki?

Post by mohan »

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a natural system of energy healing this modality involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. It is the same energy, which brings forth all life in the universe and nourishes it. This system of energy healing originated in India, its over 3,000 years old. In the late 19th century Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered the key which led to the recovery of a thousand-year-old tradition of healing.

Rei  means universal, Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge or spiritual consciousness.
Ki The Life Force It is also called the vital life force or the universal life force.
Throughout  various cultures across the world and time, it referred  by many names as  Chi, Ki, Prana, fohat, Orgone, Odic force, Bioenergetic plasma, Divine breath, Cosmic Pulse, Vital Fire and Vital force etc…

Life force plays an important role in everything we do. This is the nonphysical energy that animates all living things. As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, the life force departs. If your life force is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. Very often we tend to short-circuit our own energy system as a result of some traumatic event, which has led to a shutdown or blockage in our physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual bands of energy. When it is high, and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. Energy healing is thus a process of promoting balance and harmony on all levels. This Ki is present all around us and can be accumulated and guided by the intension.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you. Reiki treatment impacts the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of human existence. Reiki can relieve pain and enhance healing of all diseases and illnesses. One transcends the physical limitations, and true healing occurs and with true healing some amazing cures are produced as byproducts. Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.

It is done by placing the hands on or near the recipient. The practitioner runs Reiki Energy while placing their hands on or over a series of locations on the recipients body.  Advanced practitioners can also work remotely i.e. without physical contact.

Is Reiki a Religion?

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. Because Reiki comes from Divine Source. Reiki transcends all religious beliefs and is available to everyone who learns to focus the mind on their true purpose of incarnation.

What is Reiki, then?

Reiki is a spiritual healing technique and an energy healing technique; Spiritual healing connects one with Universal Consciousness bring Spiritual growth by healing core patterns/issues and helping one to remember the fullness of Who They Are. Energy healing bring relief of pain and symptoms in the mind, body and emotions.
How Reiki Works? 

Reiki is so gentle, but powerful and effective also. It addresses not only the symptom but also the cause of disease. Reiki treatment enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself. Reiki treatment releases blocked energy and bring relief of pain and symptoms in the mind, body and emotions. This life-force energy is not inert or lifeless. It is an active, intelligent and conscious energy.  Reiki energy has an innate intelligence and goes wherever needed in the body and energy field. You can give Reiki treatments to yourself, family, friends, animals, plants and even machines and can be used for world events.
  During energy healing, the healer conducts universal life energy into the patient, allowing the overall health of the energy field to be enhanced. Though Reiki flows through the practitioner but is not generated by the practitioner and does not deplete the Reiki practitioners own energy supplies. The practitioner is the catalyst that assists the patient’s own life-force energies to absorb the correct frequencies required.
  Reiki does not often confer an instant miraculous cure of any condition. It helps to correct body’s disturbed energy pattern, restores energetic balance and repair things like  blockages and tears in the energy field, which create disease and unhappiness. This can take time. Patient often gets great advantage from a single treatment but chronic disease may require consistent treatment for certain period of time.
