Reiki - What is it, How does it help?

I have been thinking about writing about Reiki for sometime, but the time has not been right!

Today, I have the right time and the intention to write about this.

Reiki is a hands-on healing energy, where the healer helps the client release muscle tension, relax mental anxiety and bring back balance on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels of existence. The beauty of Reiki energy is that it can be given in-person and for distance healing.

Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin.

The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Qi) which means “Energy”.

Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energywork using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy or Prana that flows through all living things.

Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others.

It is believed that a person’s 'QI or Prana' or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true, a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

In a Reiki session, the Healer consciously moves the Reiki energy through the Chakras or Energy Centers in the body, to facilitate healing and restore balance.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.

Usually it's very relaxing, spiritually releases lot of emotional baggage and and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.

I'm a Reiki Practitioner and have been doing Healing Sessions for around 8 years.

I have felt very calm, balanced and energized after doing Reiki on myself.

This is a very brief introduction to the practice of Reiki. If anyone is interested in learning more, do write back.

Reiki cannot be read about, it has to be experienced!!

Let the Healing Energies be with you,
