The word Reiki is Japanese and it is the description of the of energy itself. Reiki has come to be often described as Spiritually Guided Life Energy. Ki is around us and flowing through us all the time, it is the energy that keeps us alive. Health and a sense of well being are a result of unblocked Ki which nourishes every cell and organ in our bodies. When the flow of Ki is obstructed it can result in illness and cause negative effects to our body, mind and spirit. Rei is the essence of spiritual consciousness. You could describe it as God or as a higher all knowing wisdom. It knows who every living being in the Universe is which means it knows who you are, it knows exactly what you are going through and what you need and where you need it most. That is why the healing power of Reiki is so dynamic.
Reiki benefits everyone differently depending on their needs and is a unique experience each time, not only for the one receiving the treatment but also for the practitioner. Reiki energy flows from the hands of the practitioner to the receiver most commonly by either hands hovering closely over certain areas of the body or lightly laying hands on areas (ie: head, chest, legs) A very common sensation that accompanies a Reiki treatment is deep relaxation. Some might feel warmth flowing through them or just in particular areas of the body. Some feel light pressure in places and may even fall asleep for a little bit where as some feel nothing out of ordinary at all. After the treatment, feelings of well being and positivity are frequently experienced and in some cases a long night of restful sleep. In the days that follow after a treatment each individual can experience healing benefits in many ways depending on their own specific healing needs.
