Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive healing method used to restore balance in mind, body and spirit while promoting the body's regenerative self-healing ability. Reiki is a form of energy healing that produces the highest results for the highest good for all involved, and will never override a person’s free will, nor cause harm.
The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei which can be translated to “Universal” or “Higher Power” and Ki which means “life force energy.” So Reiki can be described as “universal life force energy.” Through Reiki, the practitioner acts as a conduit to direct life force energy to the client; balancing mind, body and spirit, and promoting natural self-healing.
A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness. Although Reiki has traditionally been used as a healing system, it is also extremely effective as a way to help individuals increase awareness, insight, wisdom and personal growth.
Reiki can be defined differently, based on your cultural background, belief system, and lived experience. For some Reiki is a spiritual path or practice. For many, it is a relaxation and stress management tool. For others, it is a complementary healing technique to promote good health and to support conventional medical treatments. Many people use Reiki as a tool for self improvement or to enhance their quality of life.
Anyone and everyone who wishes to see improvement in overall emotional and physical well-being can benefit from (and learn!) Reiki. Reiki is available to everyone and practiced by people from all different walks of life and lived experiences. Some people think Reiki is a religion, or is in contradiction to religious faiths. Reiki is not a religion, but many do consider it a spiritual practice. Reiki as it is known and practiced in our culture today has links to a Japanese lay monk named Mikao Usui. Many practitioners of Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Shintoism, and Buddhism embrace it for spiritual healing, and people who do not ascribe to any faith also practice Reiki. Both Reiki and spirituality focus on self-care, and Reiki is usually associated with healing. One way to think of Reiki is as a spiritual practice that complements any particular faith to promote physical and emotional healing.
Distance Reiki works the same as an in-person Reiki session except that the person receiving Reiki is not in the same room. Reiki is precisely directed energy. In distance Reiki, it is the practitioner’s focus and intent to send the energy to the client, and that person’s willingness to receive it, that makes it work.
Today we can connect with someone on the other side of the world in just a few seconds by phone, chat, or video. Distance Reiki is the same principle, one only needs to connect to the right frequency.
Our soul or our spirit is part of who we are and it is definitely not a physical element. Reiki energy connects on our spiritual and energetic levels. Distance Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is a physical limitation only. The only requirement for distance treatments is permission to have this energy flow to you and to have a sincere willingness to receive and benefit from this energy. Reiki will flow in exactly the right amount in the right way for you--no more and no less.
