What Is Reiki and How Does it Work?
Reiki is a healing technique that is safe and completely non-invasive. It is a form of energy therapy that can be used to relieve many health issues.
Reiki comes from the word “rei,” which means the higher intelligence that pervades in all living and nonliving things. Proponents of Reiki also believe that this “rei” serves as a platform in the essential functioning of the entire universe.
The word “ki” is a Japanese term used to refer to nonphysical energy that is present in every living thing. The term “ki” means “life force energy,” which is also popularly known as “qi” or chi by people from other lineages. When put together, the word “Reiki” means life force energy that’s spiritually guided.
How Does Reiki Work?
During a Reiki session, the practitioner channels their life force energy through their own hands into the patient. A Reiki master or practitioner places their hands on the patient’s problem area and gives it an energy boost. This channeling of the practitioner’s energy into the patient allows the spiritual guidance to flow for healing.
The patient’s health issues will be charged with positive energy. This increases the vibratory level of the energy field in that specific area, which causes the negative energy to be shattered and dissipated.
As a result, the negative energy which causes confusion, anxiety, sadness, stress, and any physical pain will begin to be removed, and the energy pathways that have been cleared will be replaced with positive energy.
Human beings continue to live because of the life force that’s constantly flowing through them. This life force flowing within us goes through the body’s chakras, nadis, and meridians which are all energy pathways. Additionally, the energy flowing around our body goes through the aura pathways.
How Does This Life Force Help In Healing?
Reiki practitioners believe that this life force plays a role in nourishing the different organs and cells of the body to ensure proper functioning in these areas. However, when the flow of energy in these areas is disrupted, that body part’s functioning will also be adversely affected.
The same life force is known to be responsive to a person’s feelings, thoughts, and emotions. If the person accepts and allows negative thoughts and feelings to penetrate their psyche, the flow of life energy is also adversely affected.
The person undergoing the therapy may find themselves immediately feeling relief from their symptoms, whether it be stress or something else.
The primary aim of the entire Reiki session is to help an individual move and balance the flow of energy that’s within and around them. The second aim is to remove the energy blocks in order to strengthen their energy levels and jumpstart the body’s healing process.
All throughout the session, an individual may find themselves experiencing a tingling sensation or increased feelings of warmth or coolness. Others say they feel a deeper sense of relaxation. Some people say they don’t feel anything physical at all, but this doesn’t mean that the power of Reiki therapy isn’t working for them.
