What is Reiki and how does it work?
The energy body has been called many things such as spirit or soul, but no matter what you call it, the fact still stands, that it is just as integral to a person’s health and well-being as their physical body and mind. Healing all three of the vital components that make up a human, including the energy system, allows a person to begin to feel relief from whatever ails them. Reiki energy has the ability to bring a person back to their authentic self, thus planting within them a seed, that when nurtured and cared for properly, can lead a person to a life of fulfillment, happiness and truth.
The word “reiki” is Japanese and translates to (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any religion, but is a calming and soulful healing art. Reiki works off of the premise that human beings need life force energy, also known as ki, prana or chi, to feel alive. The Reiki Practitioner works as a conduit from which the reiki energy flows, through the palms of the reiki practitioner’s hands, and into the client’s energy system.
Once the reiki energy is flowing within the client’s body, it passes through and heals the chakras. There are seven main chakras within our energy system and many other chakras located throughout the body. Chakras are energy centers within the energy body/system. The seven main chakras each have a corresponding colour and a specific role to play. For example; the base chakra, also called root chakra or mudlahara, is located at the base of the spine, its colour is red and it begins its development in the womb. This chakra may be affected if a mother is stressed while pregnant. This is simply one example of how reiki energy healing can benefit expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy.
Acting as a conduit, reiki practitioners allow reiki energy to flow through themselves and into their client. The reiki energy will flow exactly as needed without any guidance from the reiki practitioner.
Reiki heals more than just the energy body but also the physical body and mind. Reiki has a calming effect as it guides a person back to their authentic self. When reiki is used in conjunction with a person’s overall wellness plan it can be profoundly effective.
Every physical issue a person has is caused by an energetic discrepancy within the chakra system. This makes reiki extremely effective in supporting the treatment of physical issues within the body. There is no one solution to issues of the complex human body. It is vital to develop a concise wellness plan that consists of therapies that work holistically, based upon each individual’s unique physical body and mind, as well as their energy system.
Reiki compliments any form of treatment, it is a gentle and supportive energy. It does not require the person to speak and does not require any physical contact unless the person is comfortable with the hands-on approach.
Reiki is difficult to explain, because it is hard to define the energy that flows within our body and how if affects us, but if you are seeking a holistic treatment that is gentle but productive, we recommend booking an introductory reiki session today to experience the incredible, expansive benefits that this healing energy can provide you!
