Reiki; A Quick Intro

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize.

Reiki is an early form of hands on (or off) energy healing in which a participant serves as a channel for Universal Life Force. The practitioner opens himself/herself as a channel for energy that comes from a higher source to aid in healing or balancing a person’s aura and chakra system.

Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.

Reiki can enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels. Reiki is Universal life force energy, that which sustains life and promotes healing in all living things. Reiki practitioners believe it is important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others.

Since the word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy, it (strictly speaking) refers to the energy and not the specific techniques taught by Reiki Masters. The other meaning for healing, used in the practice of Reiki as well as other related areas, is the return to greater wholeness. Over time, the healing of the world's ills will be accomplished and, with Reiki in the hands of everyone, that day will come much more quickly. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.)

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommends that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures. So give Reiki a try, and you may be surprised at the ways it may improve your life.

Practitioners are also capable of healing from a distance, also known as Reiki remote healing. Believe it or not, healing and blessing objects such as cars, homes or even laptops is possible. Years ago, a neighbor of my mother's car wouldn't start. As a joke, my mom said, "Hey Marla, try giving Reiki to her car." I went ahead and sent healing energy to the car for about 5 minutes, and it started right up! I was as shocked as they were.
