What is Reiki?
The word Reiki is composed from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki. Rei means spiritually guided and the word Ki means energy. So the word Reiki translates as Spiritually-Guided Life Force Energy, or sUniversal Life-Force Energy. Either way it is the same energy that makes the Sun radiate heat, plants grow, and our hearts beat. Reiki is not a religion.
What is the system of Reiki?
The system of Reiki is a spiritually-based, meditative practice, founded by Mike Usui, in the early 1900’s in Japan.It is a form of healing using the energy around us. When our energy or "Ki" is high, we feel strong, well, and balanced. When it is low, we can feel weak, sad, out of balance, or sick. Ki is all around us. We receive it from the air we breathe, from food, and from sleep.
How does Reiki work?
Everything on our planet is made from energy. People, animals, and plants, are all made up of the same energy. Reiki is a form of non-physical healing energy made up of the life force energy around us. It flows where it is needed from the practitioner to the client to promote healing where needed. As Reiki flows through a sick or blocked area, it breaks it up and washes it away, allowing a normal healthy flow of energy to resume. As this happens your body becomes properly nourished with good energy or Ki and begins functioning in a balanced, healthy way. When our bodies are fully relaxed, they can heal themselves more quickly. Reiki meditations help us uncover and connect with our “True Self.” That pure, bright light, that we are all born with inside us, whether we are human or animal. An energy originally coming from “Source,” where we all come from. We are all created from the same “source energy,” radiating from our “True Self.” Reiki works because we are all connected. Energy never dies, it just transforms from formless, to form, to formless, to form, and so on….Reiki teaches us that. This is where deeper connections are made, and healing takes place. I like to say, “ a soul is a soul, and love is love, we are all one.”
What can you expect?
The practitioner is taught how to meditate with the intention of being open to healing and to share Reiki energy. By being able to “go-within,”and create a meditative state of mind for healing, we can connect with every living thing. A treatment can also include chants, mantras, and symbols all used to help the practitioner create a deeper focus. Everyone who receives a Reiki treatment has a different experience. However, most feel very relaxed, balanced, refreshed, an "inner peace." Reiki energy can cause some to fall asleep because it feels so relaxing. Animals love it too! Reiki can only do good. It will never cause harm. You can never receive too much Reiki.
Information for Reiki healing sessions and Classes…..
I teach Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Master Level of Usui Reiki Ryoho, and Animal Reiki. I also give Reiki healing sessions for humans and animals. If you are interested in a Reiki healing session, or interested in learning how to become a certified Reiki Practitioner, you have come to the right place! You can book this right through my website, or contact me for more info. I teach a more traditional, eastern, form of Reiki, the way it was taught in Japan before it came to the USA and was westernized and associated with other modalities. Reiki is not just a “new age thing, it has been practiced for centuries in other cultures, like Acupuncture, and Ayurvedic medicine, to name a few.
Reiki was researched by the NIH (National Institute of Health). They funded a number of peer-reviewed studies on Reiki for humans and animals over the past 20 years, and found that Reiki activated the parasympathetic nervous system and can reduce stress and anxiety, lessen physical pain, and depression in humans. It can reduce pain and stress in animals. They also showed that Reiki can increase self-esteem and improve the general quality of life.
Reiki is being widely used as a complimentary support (not as a replacement for medical treatment) for humans and animals in hospitals, pre and post operations, pre and post-natal care, hospice care, veterinary, animal shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries.
