Reiki

This is a form of healing, which originated in Japan and can be learnt by anybody. It is a gentle  and powerful way to access pure, spiritually guided life-force energy for self-healing, stress and pain relief. 

The healer does not use his/her own energy but “Reiki” or “universal life energy and focused intention.

Although, many people think that Reiki is a form of religion, that is not so, but it is very spiritual in its nature.

Reiki

How does it work?

To anyone who has not come across the idea before of energy being channelled into your body for healing, then it might be difficult to accept how Reiki works. Plus the fact that Reiki refers to “chakras” doesn’t help.  

Chakras"Chakra” is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”.  It helps if you imagine “chakras” as circles of energy flowing all the way through our bodies (front to back), helping to keep us healthy in every aspect.  If a “chakra” is not freely flowing - a bit like a wheel not turning properly on a machine - then this may cause an imbalance in our health.

There are 7 major “chakras”: starting at the base of our spines, they extend up to the crown of our heads. Each one is  a different colour, has different meanings and emotions attached to it and governs different parts of our bodies.

Interestingly, the “chakras” coincide with the positions along the spinal cord of the major nerve ganglia in our physical bodies.     

What happens during a Reiki treatment?

Treatment is given either lying down or seated on a chair. You are fully clothed and all you have to do is just close your eyes and relax. There is no need for the body to be touched for the Reiki to work. Sometimes music is played to help you relax better. 

As Reiki is a very individualised experience, you may have all kinds of sensations in your body: you may feel heat or cold; tingling or pulsing or just deep relaxation. Some people see colours or imagine they are in a beautiful place.

Whatever you feel is fine as there is no set way to react. Some people aren’t even sure if they have felt anything but feel differences later in the day or sleep really well that night.

For Reiki to work, it is not necessary for you to feel the energy. The energy goes where it is needed and will work on whichever level it is needed. Reiki heals on your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels to bring harmony and balance into your life.

Distance Healing

Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere in the world. Using Skype, Google+, FaceTime or 'phone, we would first talk about your issues: emotional, physical and spiritual so that I have a focus for my intentions.

All you have to do then is lie or sit with your eyes closed and relax, allowing the Reiki to flow through you. After the session, we re-connect and discuss what has happened and how you feel. A session of Distance Healing normally takes about an hour.

The History of Reiki 

It isn’t really known where Reiki originated, but there are many theories including the belief that Jesus may have been a Reiki healer.

The main person accredited with ‘discovering’ Reiki is Dr. Mikao Usui.  Born on the 15th of August, 1865, in the village of ‘Taniai-mura’ in in the Yamagata district of Gifu, Japan, as a young man, he studied Kiko, the Japanese version of Qi Gong. He used this to give treatments to others but found that it depleted his energy.  

The story goes that in March 1922, Usui undertook a 21 day spiritual retreat of fasting and meditation on Mount Kurama.  On Day 21, he gained the insights and knowledge required to self-heal and to heal others: he described it as experiencing a feeling of “Reiki” (universal life energy) passing into his crown chakra.  

He was so excited that he started to run down the mountain to tell everyone - only to stub his toe on the way. His instinctive reaction was to place his hands around the toe. At which point, he felt lots of heat coming from his hands and his toe immediately healed. Plus, the experience left him energised rather than drained of energy.

He moved to Tokyo and opened a clinic, wanting to use “Reiki” to treat others. At the time, there was a great deal of poverty and depression in Japan. In order to be able to help as many people as possible, Usui recognised that he would have to train others to use Reiki.

In 1925 the demand for Reiki had become so great that he opened a bigger clinic in Nakano, outside of Tokyo. He began to travel through-out Japan to teach others about Reiki. He died 9 March 1926 from a stroke.
