Reiki is a spiritual form of healing developed in Japan which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing like all spiritual healing. Universal energy (I.e., Reiki) energy is transferred from the healer to client through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.
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. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and can help with emotional issues and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. It is truly holistic treating the whole person, body, mind and soul, it heals the mind and brings feelings of peace and relaxation way past simple treatments for what ails you!
Reiki healers have the ability to heal passed to them by a Reiki master via a process known as attunement, this mean that can use an unlimited source of energy to make changes to others well-being and health. Reiki is spiritual but is not connected to any religious teaching or dogma, you don’t have to have any strong beliefs to use it just simply believe it will work. However it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
Reiki will usually take place in a quiet setting where you are not disturbed with a little soft music playing in the background, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the healers hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands is never intrusive or inappropriate, nor is there any pressure.
Additional placements on the limbs can be done as needed (for example, if there is an injury or surgical scar). The Reiki healer can hold their hands just off the body if needed (for example, in the presence of an open wound or burn), and some healers always offer Reiki in this way.
The experience of Reiki is very personal, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the healer’s hands, but sometimes their hands feel cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the hands are placed or waves of pulsations. People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. Clients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn. Some people fall into a deep, sleep like meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more cantered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
