This is done by reducing stress, which allows for relaxation and restoration of the mind, body and spirit.
What is Reiki
Usui Reiki is a healing system that is named after the Japanese doctor who discovered it, Dr Mikao Usui, about 100 years ago. He is said to have sat on the top of Mount Kurama and meditated for 21 days after which he “found” or “discovered” or channelled” the Reiki symbols we know and use today. The symbols are literally gateways to energy frequencies, and when we are attuned to use them, we are attuned to channel those energy frequencies through us.
Reiki is a two syllable Japanese word meaning universal life force, although the correct pronunciation is Rey-Key.
REI - means universal, present everywhere at the same time and refers to higher intelligence or higher self.
KI - is the non physical vitality that flows through everything that is alive including plants, animals and human beings, this is also called life force energy and can be known as Qi or Chi in Chinese culture or Prana in Indian.
Ki energy can be activated for the purpose of healing.
The combination of those two words define Reiki 'spiritual guided life force energy" Reiki is a pure energy of unconditional love and joy.It brings harmony and balance to anyone who experience it. Reiki is a Japanese healing technique often described as a hands on healing or palm healing, in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient's body to facilitate the process of healing.
It is used to heal physical and mental trauma,to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being,it is a holistic therapy that stimulates a person's own natural healing abilities.
When the flow of Ki energy in your body is high, you feel healthy, enthusiastic, have plenty of energy and a great sense of wellbeing.
Life seems easier and you have higher resistance to illness.
However when Ki energy is out of balance you are stress, generally unhappy or tired, you will be prone to sickness, your energy levels will lower. Your attitude can become negative and dealing with everyday life challenges can seem hard.
