Everything in the universe is made up of energy, that includes you and everything around you. Reiki is life force energy. It flows in you and all around you.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of energy healing. Its was passed down from teacher to student for thousands of years as an oral tradition. Students would dedicate their entire lives to learning and practicing in a very remote location in Japan. People would travel far and wide with any and all ailments to receive such a gift.
Today, things are a bit more relaxed. During our session, the recipient is either laying down on a table or sitting up in a chair, eyes closed and fully relaxed. The practitioner places their hands on or hovering over the recipient and transfers energy to them. If you think about the practitioner as a funnel, the large opened end has the universal healing energy pouring through it while the small end is aimed at the recipient who is absorbing it. The Universal energy can be thought of as “smart energy.” Because it is coming from Spirit (or Source, Universe, God, etc.), it knows what to do and where to go because it is Divine. No harm can come from receiving, only healing.
Reiki can benefit every single cell of your body and every single aspect of your life. It heals on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. It can be used as a manifestation tool. It brings communities together. It makes meditations incredibly powerful. You can imbue stones, candles, clothing, and even your shower head at home with Reiki to keep the healing energy with you at all times! The benefits are truly endless.
