What is Reiki:
Reiki is an ancient Japanese relaxation technique that also promotes healing. The basic concept is that when the mind and body is more relaxed, the body’s own natural ability to heal itself works well. I bet nobody could imagine that when we are stressed we self-cause our own illnesses, right?
There are many different kinds of healing energies out there. Reiki must be given by a Reiki practitioner who has been given an attunement that connects the practitioner to the Reiki energy by a Reiki Master. If the practitioner has not had an attunement by a Reiki Master, then they are not using the Reiki energy. Again, Reiki is not the only form of healing energy out there. Reiki uses Ki to heal which is another word for life force energy. Reiki can be used on anything living – which includes people, animals or pets, or even your plants. Everything living has Ki.
Reiki can also be used as a helpful tool in aiding people through tough situations in life, from an argument with a friend or neighbor, to troubles at work. By simply sending Reiki to a situation, Reiki can improve the outcome for all parties involved.
When the prayer is said before a practitioner begins, the prayer is guided to the highest and best purpose of the client being given the session. Sometimes the Creator has a higher idea of what a better outcome of the situation may be, than what we could have ever imagined ourselves.
I have learned through many situations in life that what I was wishing for wasn’t always the best outcome for me. Let’s examine that thought for a moment. Some people wish that a love relationship would have worked out. Then later they realized that the person wasn’t treating them with the love and respect they were deserving of or maybe even the support they should have been shown. Look back at all your relationships from as far back as you remember whether it is a love relationship, work relationship, or friendship. Have a lot of toxic people come and gone from your life? Most of us can probably give lists of people that we look back at and say “why did we put up with that”? This is what I mean by the highest and best purpose of all parties involved. Sometimes letting go of what we so desperately clung to and wished for, was the best thing that ever could have happened to us. Again, it is for the highest and best purpose of the individuals involved.
The negativity or negative situation will often teach us valuable lessons which we can carry forward. The changes we learn to make in our lives due to the difficult lessons become a new healthy lifestyle for us. Trust that the Creator or Gods know what is best for us and let’s give it to him/her to help us find how to handle the situation best.
This also applies to using Reiki for health issues whether it is physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual level. We apply using Reiki for the highest and best purpose of the individual, but sometimes what we feel is best is different than God’s plan. Please note that Reiki, although is spiritual in nature, does not fall under any religion in particular. Therefore, it can be used with anyone under any religious background.
I have seen everything from emotional releases to physical ailments being either lightened in some way or removed with the regular use of Reiki. Often, when the practitioner feels a tingling, or a cold or warm sensation over an area of the body, there is an energy block that needs healing. Sometimes the client can also feel these sensations as well, while the practitioner is over these areas of the body that need healing. Note that these sensations can be felt by both “hands on” sessions and “distant healing” sessions.
It is also important to know that Reiki energy can be sent by a Second Degree Reiki Practitioner or higher by the use of long distance healing. The client simply just has to sit in a comfortable chair or bed and accept the treatment at the specified time agreed to by both the client and practitioner. The client and Reiki practitioner can be in separate countries and the practitioner can still do a complete healing service.
I offer this service under the “Make an Appointment” distant healing section of this website. In addition to the healing, I offer a short paragraph of whatever information I picked up over the body or any spirit messages.
As Reiki Practitioners we are NOT Doctors, NOR do we ever diagnose a problem. Reiki is meant to be used as a compliment to your regular medical care by your licensed medical physicians.
