Reiki - How It Works And How It Can Help

Mar 1, 2008
Rei - Spirit and Ki - Universal Life Energy. This simple translation of the word means that Reiki is more than a physical therapy - it is a healing system that heals on all levels, the Body, Mind and Spirit at one and the same time.

Universal Life Energy is the life-force of the universe. It is the never-ending source of support and strength which flows through all living things and is vital to sustain us and enable us to survive and live within our human - 3-dimensional - existence on the earth. It is known as ki in Japan, chi in China and prana in India and the practice of Acupuncture, Tai Chi and Yoga are all based on the free-flow of this energy within and around us all.

But this life-force is more than just a cosmic energy. Expressed through the System of Reiki, by those who have been 'attuned' to use it, it is activated by the power of intent. It then becomes dynamic and is - 'The Manifestation of the Healing Power of Love.'

But this Love goes beyond the conditional love of an exchange of our individual need and support, each for the other, which operates on our human level of understanding and sharing. The manifestation of Love through Reiki is the expression of Universal, Unconditional and Compassionate Love. It operates 'from the highest good and for the highest good' for both those that receive it - and those that give it. (Which is not always exactly what we believe to be our highest good at the time - see 'What to expect!')

What is it used for?

1. Inducing Deep Relaxation and Releasing Stress and Tension.
2. Stimulating the natural healing of Acute and Chronic Ailments. It can - and sometimes does - relieve ALL physical pain to a greater or lesser extent.
3. Speeding Recovery after Surgery and Injury.
4. Supporting Conventional Medicine & Minimising the Side-Effects of Drugs.
5. Releasing Blocked Energies and Cleansing Toxins.
6. Supporting during the Times of Crises, Depression, Illness, Death & Bereavement.
7. Restoring Self-Worth and the ability to take Responsibility for the Self.
8. Supporting and Replenishing All Carers.
9. Promoting Harmony within Relationships.
10. Gaining Greater Perception of Inner Clarity, Understanding, Wisdom, Awareness and Enlightenment.

How does it work?

Reiki Energy is able to go to the deeper levels of our being where so much illness has its origin. Dis-ease is always a 'chicken and egg' situation. Is it the mind that creates the physical sickness and pain - or the body that affects the mind, resulting in depression, unhappiness, mental upset and illness because of our physical state? The profound ability of Reiki Healing is that it has the power to open our mind - and our spirit - to understanding, accepting and working with the root-causes of our 'dis-ease' - whether they are physical, mental, spiritual, or a combination of all three.

Reiki releases our resistance: receiving Reiki and allowing it to work within us enables us to work with it. Instead of our normal mental response to resist all that we perceive to be negative, disturbing and destroying in our life we discover that we are able to accept it - it is there, it has happened - we cannot turn back the clock. This release of resistance releases the tension in our mind and body which engenders a deep peace and relaxation. In turn this enables our own natural healing ability, activated by universal life energy and 'spirit,' to take over. This healing works on all levels, the body, mind and spirit, as and how it needs to in order to promote the body's own regenerative self-healing.

There is now a great deal of research into the working of 'energy', within the universe and within our human selves. There are also scientifically researched books now being published linking the application of energy via specific electronic instruments - the Tens Machine, the Sensar, the Q Strip etc., with the channelling of energy via human application - i.e. that the 'energy' transmitted is exactly the same!
