What is Reiki?
Reiki was rediscovered in Japan in the early 1920s by Mikao Usui Sensei, the founder of modern-day Reiki. The history of Reiki dates back over 2600 years to one or more Buddhas, who had written of it as the tantra of the light flash. Usui Sensei hoped that Reiki would spread far and wide from Japan and it has done so in many parts of the world today and is very popular.
Reiki uses secret symbols to empower healings in different ways. The symbols are one to add more power to a certain area, another to help mental/emotional needs and one to send out distant healing. Reiki masters are given a fourth symbol, which is the master symbol. It is very powerful and also contains all other symbols. These symbols work very well and are drawn with the healer’s intended use and invoked while saying their secret names. Only Reiki healers are empowered to use the Reiki symbols, which they receive in their attunement.
Reiki uses universal life force energy to heal the whole being holistically. These energies are in essence spiritual in nature. Hence, Reiki is spiritual healing. In Japanese the Rei in Reiki means universal and the Ki in Reiki means life force energy. So, Ki energy is the same energy as Chi energy in China or Prana energy in India. Some Reiki healers who have beliefs in God might also pray to receive them.
How Reiki Works
Reiki heals the whole being physically, mentally/emotionally and spiritually. Furthermore, the Reiki energy is channelled through the healer into the recipients or client’s subtle energy body and spirit. A Reiki session removes depleted energy to clear and cleanse away any blocked chakras and meridians. This allows for the free flow of Ki energy throughout the entire being. It replenishes any depleted life force energies with new life force energies. This allows for natural healing to take place. Reiki will help the blood to flow more freely to organs and joints to flush out built-up toxins to greatly help bring about balance, peace and harmony between mind body and spirit.
What Can Reiki Heal?
As Reiki is holistic, it can heal as a whole to address all health needs of the client. Reiki healers do not promise to cure, only that it can help many conditions. It can help to bring relief from many symptoms and give more freedom from them in many cases. There are some who respond really well to Reiki and it can be a life-changing and transformative experience for them. Sadly, not all respond to Reiki that well. In some cases, it helps a little, in other cases, it hardly benefits them. Those who respond well to Reiki, are those who are most open to receiving it. Those who find virtually no benefits, other than maybe relaxing during sessions. Are those with less or no belief in it. Sometimes it is their mindset or doubts in their own spiritual existence that can end up blocking Reiki from being received.
Clients in great physical pain can find Reiki will alleviate their suffering, or at least for a time. Those with mental imbalances, traumas or have suffered abuse can often find Reiki will bring it to the surface to be released. So, they can have what is called a healing crisis, during or after a Reiki healing session. This is a natural part of the healing process. Where Reiki draws pains and mental imbalances to the surface to be released. Therefore, for a time often during or the next day, it seems like these problems get worse for a time, as they are being drawn to the surface to be released and cleansed away. After this, the client often feels a sense of relief and much better for it.
What is a Reiki Session or Treatment?
Reiki treatments are normally very relaxing to receive. Some clients go to sleep during a session. Sometimes Reiki will help them to sleep so that it can work on a much deeper level. Most enjoy the sessions and feel much more relaxed afterwards. Reiki is also great to help the client find peace, often relieving the stress and anxiety of our daily lives. The Reiki healing room is clean and kept in a nice peaceful environment for the client. Playing gentle music and burning incense or oils can enhance the healing environment.
What Happen During the Session?
Reiki sessions last anywhere from 30 minutes to 1hr 15 minutes. The average session will last 45 minutes to 1 hour. During the session, the client arrives and has a talk with the healer. Next, a 30 to 45 minute of healing is given. It begins with the client laying on a therapy bed or sitting on a chair, “a therapy bed in my case.” The healer places their hands on the client in set hand positions. This is to best transfer the healing energies through contact healing with the client. Some Reiki healers, heal through the aura or with one hand on and the other hand off in the aura. However, contact healing is the most powerful way to channel healing energy.
Over sensitive areas on men and women, hands-off healing is given through the aura energy field. “I give a gentle whispered talk to help my clients relax for a few minutes as the healing commences.” Clients might experience the healing energies moving in and around them. These energies may feel like warm or cool energies. Sometimes tinges and goosebumps can be experienced. After the healing, a glass of water is offered to help flush out toxins. The session ends with another short chat. Reiki sessions are normally booked once a week for as many sessions as needed. The client and healer are free to stop any further sessions as wished.
I personally have helped many people with a very wide range of conditions. Some in great physical pain. Others with many past or present mental issues, such as abuse and PTSD. Clients can sometimes feel dark energies being removed from the body or mind during the session. Hence, they often feel like a great burden has been lifted. The odd person will see colours in their mind’s eye or see images that represent those things that are being removed. Others might see or feel something that relates to what their healing need is.
