Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, can also be done long-distance.
It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.
According to many versions of its origin, Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922 after a deep spiritual experience. He is said to have begun teaching others after a serious earthquake hit Japan and he felt urged to spread his knowledge.
We intuitively use Reiki energy. When we were children and were hurt, we were soothed by our Mother’s caring touch. A symbolic kiss to make it better actually did ease the pain as Mother and child used Reiki energy to soothe and heal. We naturally hold and protect areas that we have injured and in doing so are also drawing in Reiki energy to those parts to help them recover.
This energy is plentiful and is available to everyone. By opening your mind to this energy, you will be more capable of seeing the synchronicity in your life and be able to let your life flow.
Reiki has traditionally been used as a healing system, it is also extremely effective as a way to help individuals increase awareness, insight, wisdom and personal growth.
Our bodies are energetic in nature. Our bones resonate at lower frequencies while our blood, thoughts etc. vibrate at higher frequencies. This magnetic pulse is known as a bio magnetic field. In Eastern traditions this pulse is also known as Ki or Prana.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
Contentment, relaxation, decreased feelings of stress, fear and anxiety as well as a reduction and in some cases elimination of physical illnesses and persistent conditions are common observations from clients after a Reiki session.
WHAT IS DISTANT REIKI HEALING?
Distant Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time It works no matter how far apart the sender and receiver are in the world. The distant Reiki symbol joins the Reiki practitioner and the client together in a sacred healing space.
IS DISTANT REIKI AS EFFECTIVE AS AN IN-PERSON SESSION?
Distant Reiki is absolutely as powerful as an in-person Reiki session. The same energy flows to you remotely as it would in person. Your mind may perceive it differently since there is no one physically present with you, but it still works just the same.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DISTANT REIKI SESSION?
The Reiki is intelligent energy and knows what you most need in any given moment. It will clear energy on all levels from the spiritual to the physical. The Reiki will clear unwanted energy from your aura, chakras, meridians, body, emotions, mind and spirit. It will fill you with high vibrating, healing energy.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED?
There are no limits to conditions that can be treated by Reiki. Distant Reiki is great for instances where it would be challenging to have a healer physically with you. For example, surgery, exams, medical testing, dental visits, travel, relationship support, etc.
Distant Reiki is great for supporting you during deeply personal issues.
Distant energy work is amazing for those with a super busy schedule. You don’t have to waste time getting to and from your appointment.
If you are sick, recovering from a surgery, dealing with depression or anxiety, have young children who need you home, or you are a caregiver for someone who needs you at home.
Distant Reiki is a great support in the midst of life transitions, such as: pregnancy and birth, marriage, divorce, death, moving, career changes, or starting a business. These life changes usually come with less free time for self care and the Reiki can support your goals during these changes.
WHAT YOU MAY NOTICE DURING YOUR DISTANT REIKI SESSION:
- Waves of energy
- Deep relaxation
- A feeling of well-being
- Shift in air pressure
Some people don’t feel anything during the distant Reiki session which is okay, because it can be very subtle. The Reiki is still working for your highest good and most benevolent outcomes. You may notice slight shifts over the coming days.
