Rei- Spiritual Wisdom and Ki- Life energy

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 

It is administered by "laying on hands" with an intention of healing.  It is guided by a loving presence of spiritual consciousness and can never do any harm.  Because of this, it is always helpful and safe.   


How does Reiki Heal?

We are alive because life energy or Ki is flowing through us.  Ki flows within the physical body through pathways called Chakra's, Meridians and Nadis.  It can also be present and pass directly through organs, and tissues of the body.  It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. 

When the flow of healthy Ki is disrupted, it causes diminished functioning within one or more organ and tissue of the physical body. 

Ki is responsive to thoughts and feelings.  When we are optomistic and positive, we increase our own flow of Ki and this causes us to feel better.  However, when we have negative thoughts, our Ki is disrupted and diminished and we do not feel as good.  When negative thoughts become lodged in the subconscious mind, they create a perminanent disruption in the flow of healthy Ki.  This happens when we either consciously or subconsciously except negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves.

Reiki clears, straightens, and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the healthy energy to flow. 

When a block is released, sometimes a person will feel a cold sensation, and when it is melted or burned up, a hot sensation.

What is a Reiki Religion?

While Reiki is spiritual in nature in that it provides love and compassion to the patient, it is not a religion.  It has no dogma and does not conflict with any religious beliefs.  Reiki practitioners find that it enhances their religious experience.
