What is Reiki?
Reiki is the Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. Reiki is administered by “laying on of hands” and techniques such as this have been practiced for thousands of years. Reiki is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be easily learned.
Reiki means universal life energy. If your life energy is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you are more vulnerable to illness. When it is high, and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick.
With Reiki you bring balance back to the body through the Meridians and Chakras. The 7 main Chakras transform life energy into the various frequencies our system needs to keep us healthy. Meridians are the pathways that subtle energy flows through within the physical body. They contain energy points usually referred to as acupuncture points.
What happens during a live Reiki Session?
The session begins with a discussion of a bit of the life history of the client. This assists the practitioner in determining the direction the healing session may take. The client is asked some basic health and treatment information to find any contraindications to Reiki. The practitioner then asks the client for any goals he or she may have for the session.
Next, the client is encouraged to get comfortable by loosening clothing or removing shoes and jewelry. The client lies on his or her back on a Reiki table fully-clothed. The practitioner places his hands just above the body, usually starting at the head and working down towards the feet. The session is usually conducted with relaxing music and also may incorporate additional healing sounds and/or guided meditations, if desired by the client.
The client is encouraged to breathe deeply and relax and often feels a sense of flowing heat, coolness or tingling.
How does remote (distance) healing work?
Reiki energy transcends time and space and can be sent or transmitted anywhere in the world, to anyone at any time. Your practitioner will have been attuned to use the symbol for distance healing. This symbol combined with other Reiki symbols facilitates an energy connection between you and the practitioner.
Reiki restores order and balance to the energy body. It calms the mind and stabilizes the emotions. Reiki energy naturally seeks out the disturbances in your energy body and works to restore balance and harmony. The remote treatment is set up during a time when you can relax undisturbed for at least 20 minutes while the Reiki practitioner sends you Reiki energy. Since remote or distance treatments require visualization, your Reiki practitioner will most likely request your name, location and even your photo. Time zones make a huge difference, although they can be adjusted for.
How will you feel after a remote Reiki session?
At the very least, you’ll feel incredibly relaxed. There may be a heavy feeling, so if you’ve been lying down, be sure to sit up slowly and wait a few minutes before standing. Some experience warmth and tingling in the body. Some feel as if they are in slow motion, and others merely feel refreshed with a peace of mind.
What are the risks of distance Reiki healing?
A sense of well-being, relaxation & peace is the most prevalent outcome. Some people experience an emotional release as blocks in the energy body are cleared. While this release may manifest as crying, this cleansing is a positive thing. To date there are no known negative effects documented. If you have concerns about receiving energy healing, please consult your doctor or health care professional beforehand
