What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient form of energy healing in which a properly attuned Reiki Practitioner serves as a conduit for Universal Life Force (or ReiKi). The Reiki practitioner opens them self up as a conduit for a semi-sentient energy summoned from a higher source to facilitate healing or correct a person

Reiki Healing Touch

Are you aware of the fact that our body contains more energy than it actually uses to carry out its activities? Now, let me make a point! I am not talking about the physical energy that we utilize, but about the healing energy which is unseen to us but for sure, is felt by us. This invisible energy is what we call the “life force energy”. The concept of healing energy is well explained by the Japanese technique – Reiki. The word can be divided into two halves: Rei means “The Higher power” and ki means “life energy”. Precisely, it is a spiritually guided life force energy. The basic idea projected by reiki healing touch is that self healing is the path of salvation from ailments.

Reiki: Healing Energy

Therapies use tools and medications for treatment of ailments. But reiki healing therapy uses the energy of the body. Energy that drives our body can be both free-flowing and stagnant. This therapy uses the power of mind to govern the energies of the body and bring it under control. In due course of time, this therapy works wonders in enhancing the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. We all are aware of a simple truth of life: A relaxed mind leads to a rejuvenated body. This is how a person feels after undergoing a reiki therapy session. A session usually has the reiki practitioner who first seeks the permission of the patient to cure him (here the permission is for the mental confidence and trust of the patient on the practitioner). And then, the reiki practitioner starts with the reiki session with his hands moving over the chakras of the body, aiding in rejuvenating them with sufficient energy. He often makes use of reiki symbols in reiki therapy and massage. In fact, people suffering from chronic ailments like cancer, autoimmune diseases and multiple sclerosis take the aid of these therapy sessions to alleviate the pain. Mental concerns, addiction to drugs, anxiety, panic attacks and destructive habits (like smoking and abusing alcohol) can be treated effectively with reiki healing touch therapy.

Before a person learns about reiki or is keen on attending a reiki therapy session, he is required to know about the chakras. So what are these chakras after all? Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheels”. A wheel which we identify physically is what spins around its fixed axis, slow or fast. But there are similar wheels found in our body too (not physically but as energies). Our body contains 7 major chakras and each one is closely associated with an organ of our body. Below listed are the 7 major chakras.

*Please note:

  • Crown chakra is the most powerful chakra and is not much disturbed even in course of curing ailments, pertaining to any side effects.
  • Reiki treatment should be done only by a reiki practitioner and that is the best and the only way. The reiki healing hands of your teacher will initiate the therapy for you.

Now you know how the reiki healing energy helps in stimulating the chakras as each chakra associates with various organs of our body. There are many audio CDs on reiki healing music available in the market. Reiki music serves as an excellent means of inducing sleep. After all, a peaceful sleep plays a major role in enhancing immune system. Deuter’s Reiki Hands of light is an excellent musical CD which contains soothing musical notes that will aid in complete relaxation of the mind and the body. I am suggesting this musical from my personal experience and it has absolutely worked for me.

Reiki is a huge subject and every aspect of reiki cannot be covered in a single day. So wait for more, readers! Will be back with more interesting facts and finds on this subject, in my next article!

Develop The Healing Power of Your Body Through Reiki Energy Techniques

Frequently you will see Reiki therapeutic massage which will logically make you think they are similar. Reiki is distinct from massage therapy, but it is usual to see them mixed into one approach. The translation of Reiki is, universal life force energy, and that can provide a clue about what this strategy is really all about. A specialist of this technique works with concepts found in other Eastern specialities such as yoga. To illustrate, the seven chakras, or energy centers, are involved with Reiki massage and treatment. The foundation for health with this and other therapies and procedures is determined by the healthy flow of life sustaining energy in the body.

The goal of Reiki is to enhance relaxation and the reduction of stress and anxiety. So it is easy to recognize why Reiki is often joined with massage therapy so the chakras may be more open and healthy. The idea is that your body is able to heal itself, but that’s only achievable when you’re able to stay relaxed. The human body has incredible healing powers in addition to being able to maintain good health. Reiki additionally places great emphasis on holding a sense of physical as well as spiritual balance. It is necessary to have balance in our life plus a balance of our life energies.

There are very many medical disorders and situations that originate from too much stress and anxiety. The way Reiki and other related practitioners feel is that the mind and body aren’t balanced along with the lifestyle. Naturally other habits may worsen these unbalanced states such as poor diet and using unhealthy substances. The intention of Reiki massage is to help the person to achieve greater relaxation. Massaging important areas of the body will assist the body to let go stress.

If you learn Reiki and acupuncture principles, then you will learn a few things in common. They each consider the healthy condition of our energy as particularly important to health. When a disease state occurs, or even an emotional or psychological problem, then it is a result of the disruption of this energy flow. In this circumstance we are not in balance with energy and life, and then the threat exists to become ill or have problems. It is instructive to consider the ways that many people imagine in negative terms. There are far too many points to cover such as anxiety, fanatical thoughts, being angry for any cause, low self-belief plus many more.

That is why the dual approach of encouraging relaxation through massage therapy plus the energy work from Reiki can be successful for many people. Naturally, not all individuals are open to Eastern philosophies as they concern overall health and treatment. But it is fascinating to note that Reiki massage has become widely acknowledged in Western countries. Reiki therapeutic massage presents a strategic solution which suggests you should do it on-going in your general pursuit of healthiness.

Cleanse and Heal Energy at Illuminations

Dubai (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

Energy healing works on the principle that everything is made of energy. The levels of energy operated from directly correspond with the way people think and feel. Therefore, this energy influences and governs the functioning of the inner and outer self.

At the core of all matter lies energy, and the human body is no different. The energy body is a template for the physical body and therefore any change in the energy body directly affects the physical body.

Through healing and balancing these energies, one is able to experience a sense of spiritual cleansing where miraculous results are experienced on the mental, emotional and even physical levels.

Healing and cleansing can be done on a regular basis through any of these classes at Illuminations:

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is made up of two Japanese words – Rei which means ‘ spiritually guided ’ and Ki which means ‘life force energy’. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field and allows the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Aura Cleansing

The Aura is the energy field that surrounds the physical body, and can unravel a lot about the mind-body-energy state of a person. Clearing the aura shields people from negative influences of any kind, which everyone may be susceptible to.

Chakra Balancing and Alignment

Chakras are energy vortexes located throughout the body, which regulate the flow of energy through the system. The functioning of the chakras, reflect how one chooses to respond to conditions in their life. When the chakras our balanced, they spin beautifully in a clockwise motion, which in turn clears the auras.

Crystal Healing

Crystal Healing is a form of healing that uses crystals or gemstones, which are placed around different areas around the body to direct energy flow towards the affected area to heal and restore balance. They help in releasing and clearing negative energy, thereby assisting in energy healing. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. If an individual that has a particular issue that is recurring, crystals can even be worn on the body in various forms, or placed in an area in which an individual spends a large amount of time such as the bedroom or workplace.

Rebirthing

Human breathing is almost universally inadequate; virtually all people are suppressing large amounts of mental, emotional and physical tension. The practice of Rebirthing through breath work allows the detoxification of the body and the release of the suppressed tension. It is also used to recall aspects of the birth process, and through conscious, connected breath, release any emotions that accompanied the experience.

Quantum Reiki

Quantum Healing is reprogramming the subconscious with the blueprint of a healthy body through imagery and feeling, supporting the cellular rejuvenation at the basic energetic level. Reiki healing whilst the client is in hypnotic trance improves the flow of energy as the client is more receptive to the healing energy, it's as adding a pull to the process, when combined with Quantum Healing the Reiki provides the energy to support the cellular rejuvenation.
