If you google Reiki, you might see: a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.” COULD YOU BREAK THAT DOWN, PLEASE?
From the Japanese Language:
• Rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything—it is an intelligent guiding force.
• Ki is flowing in everything and is what creates animated life.
Therefore, Reiki can be defined as a non•physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher Intelligence; a spiritually guided life force energy.
Everything is energy. Energy in its most condensed form can be seen. touched and felt—a car. grass. and the human body. The energy utilized for heeling in Reiki is subtle—it is perceptible by Reiki therapists as vibrations and other sensations. With intentional effort, energy can be moved and shaped with the hands end mental focus. It is often described as a gentle or no touch energetic message. BUT WHY?
Why in the world would anyone wish to receive Reiki? Just as a surgeon uses a scalpel an the human body. a Reiki therapist uses channels of energy to perform similar healing without
invasion. Reiki also provides e natural organic resource for comfort, security and clarity within the subtle bodies: emotional, mental and spiritual. HOW?
As e Reiki therapist, I’m able to perceive colors emanating from the chakras—or; energetic wheels in the body. The colors represent different areas oi physical wellness. deficiency emotional blacks. injuries and past trauma. Utilizing surrounding energy, patient energy, and my own energy. I am able to create space and manipulate color, influence self-healing end provide an environment for therapeutic restoration. Patients experience an overall lucidity, self-empowerment and physical wellness. WHAT DOES A SESSION ENTAIL?
Reiki is a symbiotic relationship between therapist and patient An initial conversation reveals the nature of the visit and any specific concerns or wishes as well as establishes e warm and
trusting rapport Reiki is often performed with the (fully- clothed) patient on a massage table, sessions run approximately an hour long. When I work with my clients. I focus on the length of the body. from head toe. on both the front and back, spending dedicated time in areas of unease. My hands often hover e few inches, and in some cases. may rest lightly on the body.
WHAT WILL A PATIENT FEEL? While each session can differ from one to the next, some clients feel physical sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness, prickles. electricity as well as body twitching. Seeing colours behind closed eyelids. experiences oi twilight dreaming and recalling memories is also common. as well as a deepened sense of relaxation.
Often a heavy sleep will occur and snoring is not so unusual! Afterwards. the patient is light, clear and unburdened—many experience immediate relief tom physical and emotional pain.
Find a Reiki therapist! Ask a trusted friend$ yoga teacher or massage therapist—they will likely know someone who may align with you. No two therapists work in the same manner
so make sure your energy is a comfy fit. Then, lie down, breathe. relax and let the heeling begin.
