The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well - Hippocrates
Reiki is a spiritual healing practice. The purpose of Reiki is to restore vital energy. Reiki is translated and referred to as “Universal Energy”. REI, pronounced "ray", means universal, the energy from all that is. KI, pronounced "key", means energy from within, life-force, mana or prana energy. Reiki energy is described as an invincible, life-giving energy that is inexhaustible and cannot be depleted. This unifying energy is pervasive in all of life and limitless.
Reiki restores balance and function to many diverse healing circumstances- chronic pain, heart disease, cancer, HIV, diabetes, depression, trauma, neurodegenerative disorders, fatigue syndromes, infertility, cerebral palsy, insomnia, weight management, stress addictive behaviors, inflammatory conditions, digestive disorders, autoimmune diseases, - the list goes on and on. It is used to support conventional medical care- ease conception, pregnancy and birthing process, hastening surgery recovery, reduce side effects of radiation and chemotherapies, or soothe transition during end of life care.
Another healing aspect is, Reiki can maintain current good health and prevention. One can simply use Reiki to improve athletic abilities, work productivity and performance, creative expression, positive thought patterns, outlook on life, profound sense of engagement with self and others or expansion of self-awareness. The best aspect of Reiki, it is only ever positive and helpful.
What is Blocked Energy?
There are many forms of blocked energy that occur as traumas, imbalances, stress blocks, or depletion of energy. The source or cause of health come from the energy that flows through the individual rather than the functional condition of the physical organs and tissues. It is the energy that animates the physical organs and tissues as it flows through them and therefore is responsible for creating a healthy condition. If the flow of energy is disrupted, the physical organs and tissues will be adversely affected manifesting a conditional response bringing on physical, emotional, and psychological ailments. Therefore it is a disruption in the flow of energy that is the main cause of illness. Reiki's healing energy is a live form of “intelligent unique energy” that knows where a healing is required and how much energy is received for a healing to take place. To release negative energy is energizing the positive state of wellness.
