Reiki... spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki works in many ways to heal and guide. Reiki comes beyond the place of Ego, and is a blessing by anyone who experiences or is touched by Reiki. Reiki comes from the Source, the Creator, the Divine Universe, guided by your Higher Self. Reiki brings happiness, calmness, peace and love.
Reiki feels like a glowing radiance of energy that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person, the body, emotions, mind and spirit.
People often describe their experience by saying they feel as if they floating during the session, or have felt like they were being wrapped up in a warm, loving nurturing feeling. For clients that are able to let go, it is very common to sleep during most of the session.
To rest so deeply during a session means that you are able to open up fully to the
energy and Reiki will be able to
work on a very deep level.
The most important result of a
Reiki session is the drastic reduction
in stress and a sense of relaxation similar to what people feel after a massage, but it seems to last longer.
There will be an overall feeling of being balanced, grounded and centered.
How Reiki works
Reiki works on the energetic level, meaning it works, not only on the physical level but on all the energetic levels ~ physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
It is on one of these levels that the cause of
physical symptoms exist and Reiki works directly
on that level.
All of the energy levels are interlinked or are part
of another, so what happens to one level affects
all levels of the energy system.
So the symptom must be treated as a whole. This is what Reiki does. It works on all aspects of ourselves. By treating the body as a whole, you are not only able to "heal" or release the initial cause, but also the thought patterns that may have been created, the emotions associated and the physical attributes.
To understand Reiki we must first understand that we live in a universe that is made up entirely of energy. Our thoughts are energy, our emotions are energy, even our physical bodies and all physical matter is a dense form of energy.
We each have an "aura", an energy field that
surrounds the body and all matter. Our
thoughts, emotions the very essence of who
we are resides in these fields. It is through
these energy fields that we get the majority
of the energy we need to survive. One of the many causes for many illnesses or dis-ease is our repression of thoughts and emotions.
Thoughts and emotions are energy and in order for us to heal we must express them or "release them".
