Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force
energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki is defined as Universal Life Force. The Ki in Reiki is the energy component or pure life energy.
In Hindu traditions life force is known as Prana. Hawaiian shamans call this life force mana. Each culture has their own definition of our vital life energy.
Reiki or life force is universal energy and is found in People, animals, and plants. Because this life force is found in everything we can draw upon its universal energy in limitless abundance. During my reiki sessions I place my hands, my heart and my deep
intent and act as a pure loving vessel or conduit for the healing Universal energy to flow and heal your body. In essence I am not "giving" you my own body's energy; rather I am acting as a vehicle for this Universal energy to flow through me and open up your body to receiving this pure gift of love that we all deserve. All my sessions will include an element of Reiki and you may feel surges of energy or pure warmth flowing throughout your body as I touch you. The delightful result of receiving a Reiki treatment is the
blossoming and opening up of your chakras. The word chakra is Hindu in origin and simply translated means "spinning wheel' which refers to the spinning vortexes of energy within our bodies. As each chakra awakens your energy will be more receptive to love and the transit of Kundalini energy at the base of your spine will have a clearer path to flow. In Reiki we harmonize your spirit body with your physical body thereby permitting you to feel greater feelings of sensual bliss and hopefully enlightenment and self awareness.
