Reiki is a simple and easy to learn healing technique based on use of natural energy. It is widely used to treat various physical and mental ailments, stress management, relaxation and personal development. It has lots of other uses too. On this page I will try to give a simple and brief explanation of it.
The word "Reiki" pronounced as “ray-key” is a combination of two Japanese words, “Rei” and “ki”. "Rei" means spiritual or universal and "ki" means the life force. The meanings thus becomes like "The Universal Life Force Energy". Everyone is born with this energy, which can be channeled and used for healing at will. As the name indicates, it is universally present everywhere. The word Reiki is used in two meanings; one as the name of a non-physical energy that gives life to all the living beings and second as the name of the healing system that uses this energy.
Reiki is a nonphysical and invisible universal energy that vibrates at a level higher than personal energy. Here by personal energy I mean the energy which is purely individual and unique for everyone. Reiki does not work like physical medicines. It is administered by just simple laying on hands and can be used alone and also alongside regular medical treatment whatever that might be. One does not need to know the cause of illness. Reiki automatically redresses the cause, supplements and speeds up the healing process and does not go against. It is a fully positive energy and does not cause any type of harm to the recipient or the healer. In fact it cannot be used to harm anyone. Reiki never flows for negative purposes. If you can correctly understand Reiki and its working, you will be able to use it for much more than just the physical healing.
Application of Reiki is not limited to the physical factors; it works far beyond. You can use it for as many purposes as you can think of but it must however, be remembered that Reiki is not meant to control anyone’s mind or to be used for any negative purpose. It can help you in physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development in many ways and add to your well-being. Reiki can help you in manifestation for various goals in life, treatment of various diseases, improvement of relations and creation of a congenial working atmosphere etc. Reiki works according to laws of the nature, never against those.
Reiki for Relaxation
Reiki is also known as relaxation technique. In today’s tension ridden life, it is a boon and widely used for both mental and physical relaxation. Daily self treatment keeps the person in calm and relaxed state of mind.
It must also be understood that Reiki is not just about healing of the physical body or getting some problems solved; it is a way of life. How you understand and use it is your choice.
