Reiki: Detailed Overview


Reiki is a spiritual practice of healing. It is based on the idea of Universal Life forces. Our bodies have Qi or Ki, which is the Universal life force that flows through every human body. Our vital energy keeps us psychically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually in alignment within our self. Qi/Ki has to flow freely in our bodies and emanate outwards for us to be in a healthy state of being.

How is Reiki therapy done?

In Reiki, a Reiki Practitioner uses their hands to send and transmit the Universal life force to those people, places and things in need of Energy Balancing and Alignment to either regain or maintain a healthy state. It is similar to other healing practices, such as the laying of hands and Paranic healing, which uses the hands and Life force energy to heal others. Reiki is also used when a person’s Qi/Ki becomes low and creates a feeling of stress, tension and illness both mentally, physically and spiritually. When Qi/Ki is balanced and flows in a high optimum level, one will be in a healthy, happy and balanced state. The main purpose of Reiki is to keep everyone happy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Reiki is considered both an alternative medical & spiritual healing practice. Through the practitioner’s hands, both healing energy and vibrations are passed to the recipient, in order to facilitate balance and harmony in a person. It is done by removing any negative energy or blockages that would impede the healthy flow of Qi/Ki both internally and externally in the person receiving Reiki treatment. When Reiki is given to a person, it treats the person’s bio field, better known as their aura, as well as the physical body; to return the person to a state of balance both inwards and outwards.  When the receiver of a Reiki session gets in a relaxed state, their mind and body allows the healing energy in to be realigned and returned to a healthy balanced state. Some people who undergo Reiki treatments notice a change after one session, but others may need a series to feel a change in their state of being mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.

Heal Naturally through Reiki

Reiki is considered as a natural healing form. It generates the Universal Life Force a person, which is already within them to officiate healing and balance within and around the person. Reiki practitioner does this by placing their hands either directly on or above the person receiving the healing session. This is done to facilitate the transfer of the healing universal energy from the Reiki practitioner to the person receiving the treatment. Reiki stimulates the receivers own healing energy to get healing, while the Universal life force is being transferred to stimulate them.
