Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique that works subtly on the emotional, physical, spiritual and mental body. It is a harmonizing energy that balances out any imbalances in the system, and when creating balance in our lives we allows the natural process of repair to occur. The practitioner acts as a channel for the Reiki life force energy, which flows through them to the areas of need. It is a practice of laying on of hands, but can also be sent remotely. Reiki is generally used in tandem with the chakra system, focusing on these energy centers along the body to support physical healing and relaxation, reduce stress, move stagnant energy, and release emotional blocks.
According to Madame Takata, the Reiki Master who brought this technique over to the USA, Reiki “heals the cause and eliminates the effects”. It is a Universal Life Energy that can cause profound changes or such subtle shifts that it can almost go unnoticed. There have been many Reiki miracle stories, big and small, but sometimes the miracle can be as simple as giving yourself the permission to relax and unwind. Your journey is your own, therefore it is important to emphasis that the practitioner is not doing the healing, they are merely facilitating your self healing process.
From my personal experience, Reiki has relaxed points of tension in the body, healed aches and pains, improved emotional states, created clarity and a lightness of being, expanded my awareness and supported my personal growth and connection to self and the divine.
