What Is Reiki?
The word Reiki is Japanese in origin which when translated refers to the energy in all things, the energy that is all around us, also known as Universal Life Force Energy. I like to think of it as the essence of life, that spark that exists within us, within all living things.
Our busy lives can result in stresses and tensions, which together with our thought processes, combine to create restrictions to this flow of energy within us, our own Life Force Energy. This is often then reflected in the body and can manifest as physical, emotional or mental imbalances.
When you experience a Reiki treatment Universal Life Force Energy works within you, with your own energy system. It works in a soft and nurturing way to bring harmony to your whole being, working on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Reiki is intelligent and knows where healing is most needed.
This energy is a powerful tool for growth and personal transformation. It may also be used to facilitate the healing of illness and help you return to a state of balance and wholeness. I believe Reiki can help with many things including:
- Sense of peace, calmness and deep relaxation
- Reduced stress levels
- Relief of pain
- Release of stagnant energy
- Balance on all levels
- Clarity of thought and sense of connectedness
- Easing of depression and insomnia
- Increase of self-esteem
- Greater sense of purpose
Please also note; Reiki is not part of a belief system or religion and will not contravene your own personal beliefs.
