“Every existence has healing power. Plants, trees, animals, fish and insects, but especially a human as the lord of creation has remarkable power”… Usui.
Reiki means “universal life force energy”. It is a Japanese word pronounced “ray-key”. Reiki means universal (rei) – life force energy (ki). The Reiki System is an ancient system of energy healing, simple and powerful. Reiki has elements based on Asian health and spiritual practices. The peoples of the eastern part of the world are more familiar with energy work for health benefits and to attain higher levels of spirituality. This life force energy is known by many names – prana, mana, chi, ki, cosmic pulse, etc.
Rather than acting solely on a physical level, Reiki is holistic in its effect – eliciting a healing response on the entire spectrum of ones being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Anyone can learn to use the Reiki Healing System; it needs no qualifications for eligibility, only the will to learn.
The levels of our being are the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Life force flows within the physical and nourishes the organs and cells of the body. When this life force is disrupted, it causes the functions in one or more organs to lessen drastically thereby preventing them from functioning at their optimum levels. This life force is affected by thoughts and emotions. It becomes disrupted when we accept negative thoughts and emotions about ourselves. These negative thoughts and emotions cause a disruption in the flow of life force. And when the body, mind and soul become imbalanced, illness happens.
Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as emotional trauma, lack of nutrition, high stress lifestyle, negative thoughts like fear, worry, anger, doubt, anxiety, suppressed emotions, lack of love for yourself or others.
If we are to be truly well, our entire being has to be in harmony and balance. Without the intention to be well and the will to do something about it we cannot become well. Reiki empowers us to become whole in all ways. When you have Reiki, you are never again helpless. You become responsible for yourself and your life. Reiki empowers you to take charge of your life, health and complete well-being.
