|Dr. Mikao Usui|
Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. When the "Rei" and the "Ki" are broken down into their two component parts, the Kanji (Japanese alphabet) definition for Rei is universal, transcendental spirit, mysterious power, essence. Ki is described as the vital life force energy, very similar to the Chi of Chinese acupuncture, light to Christians, and Biplasmic Energy to Russian researchers.
|Dr. Chijiro Hayashi|
We all have Reiki energy (Universal Life Force Energy), for our birthright is what makes Reiki different from other healing methods is the attunement (also known as the initiation) process, which the student experiences in the various levels of Reiki classes.
Anyone can lay their hands on another person and help accelerate the healing process. Reiki attunements however, have accessed a very ancient technology for fine-tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibratory level.
|Mrs. Hawayo Takata|
In addition, certain of the energy centers, also known as chakras, are opened to enable the person to channel (and vibrate) higher amounts of Universal Life Force Energy.
Reiki is drawn through the channel. For example, if I lay my hands on you to do a treatment, you will draw appropriate amounts of energy to whichever areas of your body needs it. I am never drained in the process, as I too am treated as I "give" a treatment. The energy enters at my crown chakra and passes through the upper energy centers to my heart and solar plexus. The rest then passes through my arms and hands to your body.
Researchers at Stanford University, using highly sensitive instruments which measure the flow of energy forces entering the body, determined that Reiki energy enters the practitioner through the top of the head, or crown chakra, and exits through the hands.
The evidence to date show very clearly that there is indeed a plasmatic streaming - a release of energy through the bodily system - when blocks are released.
All out comes are different for every treatment, with the client being the determining factor in the net result. Each person draws in just the right amount of life force that he or she needs to release, activate or transform the energy of physical and etheric bodies.

Reiki not only can change the chemical structure of the body by helping to regenerate organs and rebuild tissue and bone, it also helps to create balance on the emotional level.
One of the great benefits of Reiki is the possibility to self-treatments. Once a person is attuned, he or she need only have the intention to do Reiki on him/herself or others and the energy is immediately drawn through. Self-treatment is an extremely effective technique for total relaxation and stress release.
Reiki is not a belief system, therefore no mental preparation or direction is needed to receive a treatment, only a desire to receive and accept the energy.
|William Lee Rand|
Reiki is not a religion, as it holds on creed or doctrine. It is a very ancient science hidden for thousands of years, until Dr. Usui rediscovered this very old "technology" hidden in the Tibetan Sutras.

How Reiki Works
A Reiki healing treatment is simple to perform. The practitioner is taught hand positions in which they place his/her hands above the person's energy centers. The energy has an intelligence of its own and knows where the healing energy has to go and what is needed. It never does any harm. The Reiki practitioner is a channel for the healing energy.
Each Reiki healing treatment is unique and deeply relaxing. Everyone will have a different experience during a treatment. Some will feel heat, tingling or maybe nothing at all, the energy is working even though we maybe not be aware of it.
Reiki promotes deep relaxation and releases blockages within the physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Release of tension and blockages then allow the natural flow of energy through the body, releasing toxins and waste products as the blockages leave. Once the blockages are removed the person can then receive, hold and store more energy in the body, accelerating one's energy vibration.
Reiki usually brings about slow, gradual improvements over a period of days and weeks. With conditions that have been present a long time, it may take a longer period of time until maximum benefits are achieved.
It is up to us to cast off old habits and patterns in our life and to accept healing and change. It is very important for everyone to "think positively". Sometimes people have unreasonable expectations of Reiki healing. It does not often bring an instant cure of any condition. Reiki works with you to restore energetic balance and repair things like blockages and unbalance in the energy field which create disease and unhappiness. This can take time, especially if the illness has been in the body for awhile. It is best when having a treatment to have no expectations except to be open to having the treatment.
It is important to understand, that "healing" is not always the same as "curing". Once again our mindset (positive) makes a considerable difference in the outcome of what may happen. Illness is usually a message from our body, take notice, something is not right in our lives. Are we going in the right direction? Do we need to learn something? Forgive someone? Bring more joy into our lives? Release old memories? Make a healthy life change? Love ourselves more?
Ultimately if we want healing to be permanent we must take responsibility for healing the cause. Reiki healing may help with this too by allowing you to approach the changes in a calm, relaxed manner. Allowing you to let go of negative thoughts and attitudes, it can bring about greater self-awareness and your capacity to love yourself and others. Reiki can transform your life in many ways.Back to Top
