Reiki 'Round the World

Imagine for a moment having at your fingertips an all-natural, inexpensive therapy that can be easily learned and administered by anyone; a therapy with unlimited healing capabilities on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels; a therapy that's with you wherever you go and can be self-administered unobtrusively.

Sounds a bit like a dream.

The reality is, you do. And it's not a dream. It's Reiki.

What Is Reiki

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient healing therapy rediscovered in the early 1900s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Christian educator.

The word "Reiki" translates as "Rei", spiritual or universal life force, and "ki", energy. Reiki is the spiritual, life force energy in all things.

The holistic healing practice most referred to as Reiki is the hand-to-body channeling of spiritual energy into our bodies through the hands of someone attuned to (blessed and opened up to the realization of) Reiki during what's called a Reiki treatment. In essence, how Reiki works, is what you learn both during Reiki training and most importantly during self-practice of Reiki.

Basics of a Reiki Treatment

A Reiki treatment consists of a Reiki practitioner placing their hands on or near specific points of your body. Energy channels through a Reiki practitioner into the recipient. You may feel warmth, cold, tingling, pulsating or nothing at all. You may experience a state of deep relaxation. You may even fall asleep.

Reiki is administered fully dressed lying on a massage table or seated in a chair. It requires no preparation or aftercare, no manipulation, topical application or ingestion of any product.

Reiki can be safely administered to:

  • adults, children, pets, plants, the elderly and the planet
  • those transitioning from life
  • during pregnancy and delivery
  • to the healthy, the sick, the curious
  • in preparation of and to accelerate recovery from surgery
  • as a regular part of a personal healthcare regimen
  • most importantly, to oneself

Recently, Reiki has gained much attention in the area of cancer treatment.

What is Reiki Doing

One of the many outstanding blessings of Reiki is that it's a no-brainer. Meaning it truly is one of the simplest, most powerful non-denominational yet multi-dimensional healing therapies I've ever encountered.

Yet how Reiki works and what Reiki is doing is also as mystical as it is simple.

Reiki energy has a directive of its own. It knows what's out of balance and how to heal it. It may relieve physical symptoms but its purpose is to make known the root of imbalance and assist in returning the body to homeostasis. So in that regard, Reiki continues to heal even after the session is over.

There are no right or wrong results of Reiki. No two Reiki treatments are the same, as no two bodies or souls are the same. A person receiving Reiki repeatedly will have different experiences each time as Reiki continues to clear energy, emotional blocks and heal.

Some of the more common effects experienced are that Reiki is reported to:

  • relax
  • de-stress
  • alleviate pain
  • boost the immune system
  • restore balance to the body's energy system, enhancing its natural ability to heal
  • increases concentration, creativity and clarity
  • induce the Relaxation Response, setting in motion a myriad of experiences of well-being

Reiki Goes Mainstream

Reiki is no longer confined to the traditions of eastern medicine, gurus or sages. Reiki is accepted and used as a complementary alternative medicine (CAM) in hospitals, clinics, hospice, by doctors, nurses, medical therapists, average joes, children and seniors.

Reiki is a simple therapy to learn. No prior experience or training in Reiki, science, medicine or spirituality is necessary. All that's needed is a desire to bring into your life the knowledge and capabilities of this simple yet powerful healing energy. And engage in a brief Reiki training class.

Reiki's Biggest Effect

Reiki's most profound effect is it reawakens the realization of self-healing in the receiver, where it's always been.
