Reiki Healing -
Energy is Medicine
Our physical bodies are composed of multiple layers of energy. When our bodies become in a state of dis-harmony, or dis-ease, it is because we have had a loss of our physical, personal energy from our own energy field.
When this happens we must replenish the energy that has been lost, due to stress, giving our energy away, or energy being taken by another. There are many ways that we can replenish our energy stores when they have entered into a state of dis-harmony or dis-ease. Some of these ways are more potent and long lasting than others.
A Brief Overview
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing as a form of alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional medical bodies. Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe that they are transferring universal energy (i.e., reiki) in the form of qi (Japanese: ki) through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.
There are two main branches of Reiki, commonly referred to as Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki. Though differences can be wide and varied between branches and traditions, the primary difference is that the Westernized forms use systematized hand-placements rather than relying on an intuitive sense of hand-positions (see below), which is commonly used by Japanese Reiki branches. Both branches commonly have a three-tiered hierarchy of degrees, usually referred to as the First, Second, and Master/Teacher level, all of which are associated with different skills and techniques.
The body is made up of energy, to put it simply, if we do not have enough, or have an imbalance of our ULF - Universal Life Force Energy, than we tend to feel:
- Anger Easily
- Dis-Harmony in our Lives
Reiki is helpful for all of these things and so much more.
