The ancient art of Reiki (pronounced ray – kee) is a form of natural, holistic healing which was used in the Far East and Tibet over 6,000 years ago. The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ means ‘Universal Life Energy’.
Eastern religions considered Reiki to be a very sacred healing art, and kept secret the symbols and techniques involved to ensure the purity of both the energies and the facilitators. Few written records were kept, and only the ‘selected ones’ were taught the ancient and sacred form of healing.
In the late 1800’s a Japanese Christian theologist and educator, Dr Mikao Usi, rediscovered the techniques/s encrypted amongst Sanskrit records, and since that time many thousands of people all over the world have been trained to utilize this ancient healing art.
Healers are attuned to high-frequency Universal symbols. This is rather like a television set being tuned in. When you are ‘attuning’ you bring in the Reiki energy to heal yourself and others. Reiki practitioners are taught to receive Universal Energies and White Light through their Crown Chakra and pass it through their bodies and out through their hands into another’s body. A Reiki treatment enables the Universal Life Energy to be received.
It removes energy blockages allowing the Life Energy to flow throughout the body, releasing toxins of various sorts including waste products. This allows more energy to be received and the vital processes and functions become more highly-tuned. There is a greater vitality and stimulation of the body and the natural process of renewal and removal of toxins are enhanced and rendered more effective, in turn opening up more of the body to the life-force energy.
Both the receiver and facilitator of the Reiki treatment experience a sense of well-being, peace, calm, a ‘lightness’ of being and a deep sensation of relaxation during and after the treatment session.
Reiki is a technique of vibrational healing which is available for use by anyone and everyone. It gives one a more relaxed and positive approach to life in general, and brings a sense of well being all round.
Reiki energy can be directed and used upon all the earth plane – people, plants, animals, food, water, earth, stones, rocks, crystals and even inanimate objects. Reiki reaches all levels of existence – mental, physical, spiritual and emotional, and heals on a cellular level. Reiki works in harmony with the body, mind and spirit.
