Reiki is a Japanese Healing Art Practice developed by Mikao Usui in the 1800s. The word Reiki is made up of two words, (REI)- “God’s Wisdom or Higher Power” and (Ki)-“Life Force Energy.” Therefore, Reiki means “Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy”
Rather than being taught in the traditional way, Reiki is instead “passed on” to the student by a certified Reiki Master through an “Attunement or Initiation” process. Thisprocess energetically “rewires” the student so the energy of Reiki could move through them. Once the student is attuned, he/she can “channel” in order to support the healing of mind, body, and soul during a hands-on-healing session.
As Life Force animates everything that is alive, when one’s life force is low, we are more likely to get sick, feel stressed, drained and tired, or low energy. During a healing session, Reiki can unblock stuck energy, reduce stress, boost the immune system, bring about clarity, peace of mind, and relaxation. By bringing harmony and balance to the body, Reiki can activate the body’s own ability to heal. As you “give” Reiki, you receive Reiki, so both the recipient and practitioner benefit from this powerful, yet gentle energy.
The energy of Reiki is of the highest vibration; therefore, it can be beneficial to anyone. You can use Reiki on anything that has life: you, others, children, pets, plants. Furthermore, you can use Reiki to elevate the vibration of inanimate things like money, food, goals, gas, water, electronics, etc.
