Reiki is an energetic form of healing in which one embraces the body’s ability to rejuvenate itself by reducing stress and fostering relaxation.
Light equals life. When you live in light and love, you bring more energy into the body, bequeathing a more fulfilled and abundant life. Come out of the shadows and step into this radiant healing energy. Experience Reiki and heal the mind, body and spirit. Bring the light in and release those blockages that are holding you back from living a superior quality of life.
Reiki comes from Japan. In the Japanese language Rei means “universal” and Ki means “life force energy.” Hands-on healing has been practiced throughout the history of humankind and is still used in various hospitals across the U.S., not to mention the rest of the world.
Since ancient times many cultures around the world have had the knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of one’s life. There is miraculous medicine to all disease.
Reiki helps with the circulation of the vital energy that circulates through us all. When life force energy is low you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. During a healing session the practitioner taps into the flow and becomes a conduit of universal life force energy that is infused into the receivers own body and life force energy.
This process assists in the body’s own natural ability to balance and restore itself at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Everyday stress, trauma, and illness can be transmuted and energy blockages can be removed allowing for life force energy to flow better, which assists healing on all levels.

Not All Energy Healers Use Reiki
Many healers use life force energy but Reiki is a unique form of healing energy that can only be channeled by someone who has been attuned from a Reiki Master. Anyone who hasn’t been formally attuned is not using Reiki, but another breed of healing. Most people must receive an attunement in order to channel Reiki, although some people are born with Reiki energy or have gotten it some other way. This is not common. An attunement increases the strength of one’s healing energies.
In my case this couldn’t be more true. As a person who already did healing work in my private hypnotherapy and healing practice, and who already was a highly sensitive person—a clairvoyant and empath—I noticed a consistent increase in my abilities after getting attuned and receiving Reiki training.
My abilities to tune in to my clients’ bodies and move negatively stagnant energy around, as well as channeling healing energy, became even more accurate and effective. I noticed that the Reiki energy was of a higher frequency. The energy guided itself, flowing without me having to enter an altered state.
Cleansing The Mind, Body and Emotions
The experience of receiving Reiki can affect the body as well as the mind, and emotions. Part of the process of releasing is letting go of toxins from areas where they may have been trapped in the body. You can experience physical aches and pains, as well as the release of emotional toxins in your consciousness. This experience is actually good in that healing is taking place. This does not always happen for everyone after a Reiki session/attunement, but when and if it does, it is important to know what is happening so you can feel supported and know that what is coming up is coming up to heal once and for all. For the most part many people experience a very relaxed and calm state.
Reiki Is Not Harmful
Reiki is guided by spiritual consciousness. No harm can ever come because it always knows what a person needs and is gentle, but effective. The Reiki practitioner does not have any special powers or abilities. They are just a conduit of life force energy. Because the practitioner is not doing the healing directly, it is much easier for the ego to stay out of the way and allow the loving presence of spiritual consciousness to shine through. Neither the giver nor the receiver ever gets depleted because the healing is channeled. Both receive benefit since we are always in need of healing. Giving a session always increases one’s energy and fills each person with love and well-being.
Reiki Can Be Learned by Anyone
You do not need to have any special abilities to learn Reiki, nor do you need to know how to meditate or be highly sensitive. It is simply passed on from the Reiki master to the student through an attunement and training process. It is not based on individual talent. Many people claim to feel a direct connection to God’s healing love and protection.
Reiki Can Be Used for Self-Treatment
It is just as beneficial to use on yourself as it is to use it on others. It is a wonderful advantage. Specific hand positions will be taught during a training so you learn the positions necessary to give yourself a complete Reiki healing session.
Reiki for Patient Medical Care
Reiki is offered as part of regular patient care in over 800 hospitals across the U.S. It is used in operating rooms and intensive care units. It decreases recovery time from surgery, and improves one’s mental attitude and reduces unwanted side effects of medications, in addition to chemotherapy, radiation and other medical procedures. A study done at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut indicates that Reiki improves patient sleep by 86%, reduces pain by 70%, reduces nausea by 80%, and reduces anxiety during pregnancy by 94%.
There are so many benefits of Reiki practiced in conjunction with psychotherapy to help improve healing from emotional trauma as well as myriad other issues. Psychological benefits include improved memory and greater self-confidence. Distance Reiki is also possible by the way.
Reiki is Not A Religion
Reiki does not have any conflict with religious beliefs. People of various religions have practiced it and find that it brings one closer to their religious experience in connection with their higher power. Although it is spiritual in nature it is not a religion.
Can Reiki Energy Be Detected?
Yes! Reiki energy has been detected by using Kirlian photography. This is the technique of photographing etheric energy patterns around living things. Reiki energy was detected this was as far back as 1990. Reiki energy was visually captured emanating from the palm chakra and can be seen between one’s fingers.
Experiencing The Benefits
Through the sense of touch and the benefits of Reiki you can start to learn to use your gut feelings and intuition to experience someone else’s energy field or your own, and decipher what is going on in their body or yours by tuning into subtle vibrations.
I have learned to read in this manner with often great accuracy. Through Reiki I have enhanced my ability to sense. My clients have benefited tremendously from getting a Reiki treatment from me. Developing clairvoyance is a lifelong study that often requires personal habits of mental and physical purity and a wholesome lifestyle. Through the practice of Reiki you can learn to heal yourself and to uplift others in their own healing.
One thing about Reiki is that there is no limit to the possibilities offered. Reiki energy is meant to be developed. It comes from an infinite source and it has so much potential, so there is always room for improvement.
