REIKI (pronounced ray-key) is a lay-on of hands healing technique thousands of years old. It is thought to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practise that was rediscovered in the late 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a renowned Japanese Buddhist.
Reiki is a very simple yet powerful Technique.
It is the spiritual consciousness called Reiki that guides the life force called Ki in the practise we call Reiki. Therefor Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life force energy. This is ore meaningful interpretation of the word Reiki. That Reiki guiding itself with its own wisdom and not being, or needing to be responsive in the direction or thoughts of the practitioner.
The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. Reid is the upper Japanese kanji character on the cover of this manual; Ki is the lower character.
The word Rei as in Reiki mean super knowledge or spiritual consciousness. The consciousness is all knowing and the wisdom to address problems and difficulties in an order and way that is more appropriate, all elements considered.
Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit and Mana I’m Hawaiian. Ki is life forces. It is also called the vital force or the universal life force. This non-physical energy exist in all beings. If your life force is low or if there is a restriction in the flow, your body’s immune system will also be low and you will be venerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely the results is a high immune system whereby you are less likely to get sick.
Life Force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.
How can REIKI Help Me?
People use Reiki to relax and strengthen their Well-Being; reduce pain, anxiety and fatigue, help manage symptoms, reduce the side effects of medications; and support recovery after injuries and surgery.
Reiki is a good integrative therapy to try because people generally start feeling better very quickly with Reiki. As anxiety and pain lessens, and people feel hopeful about regaining their health, they feel more able to incorporate other needed health interventions or make needed lifestyle changes.
Reiki therapy often clears the mind, enabling patients to better evaluate the sometimes conflicting information being offered by various specialists, so that can make better treatment deceits with greater confidence. In this way, Reiki can help people become more actively involved in their own health.
Reiki has not been found to have any adverse effects. It has no known contra indications and can be used concurrently with any medical intervention.
