What Is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient holistic healing system. Rei means spirit and ki means energy, or universal life energy. This healing energy is channeled through the practitioner through an attunement process. The energy goes where it needs to go for the highest good and healing. It is gentle, non-invasive, yet deeply powerful and life changing. It promotes healing for all kinds of illnesses, surgeries and accidents, as well as emotional and spiritual issues. Reiki can be used to complement any modalities of treatment, being western or eastern. It enhances healing, speeds recovery and lessens side effects of illness or medications. It is used in hospitals, hospices, clinics, animal sanctuaries, shelters and zoos, to complement and speed the healing process, no matter what the situation. Sometimes miraculous healings occur with Reiki. It helps one to grow and evolve, and it soothes and eases the dying process.
"The Polynesians proclaim that the energy body (which some call the
light body) holds the design for every cell, tissue, and organ of the
physical body, and that it's this pattern that the body soul follows in
making repairs. When the blueprint is in harmony, there are no
problems. But if there's disharmony that distorts the plan, the body
soul can no longer restore the physical, so illness results. This is why
spiritual healers and energy workers alike regard illness as a
breakdown within the body's energy system."
