According to Reiki Master, William Rand, “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 knows where to go and what to treat so it is not dependent on the skills or experience of Reiki Practitioner. It flows to the area needing healing, not necessarily where the symptoms are originating.
Some who receive Reiki feel a warmth flowing through their body or specifically in certain areas of their body, while others may feel a tingling. Some may feel nothing at all. Several clients have fallen into a gentle sleep while receiving treatment. All feel a sense of peace and relaxation when done.
Reiki treats the whole person: the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Many dis-eases originate not in the physical body but in the emotional, mental or spiritual bodies. If stress or other emotions and thoughts are not healed they show themselves in the physical body as stomach ulsers, heart disease, cancer or other dis-eases.
Reiki can also be sent at a distance. Reiki knows no time or space limitations. In fact, some say Distant Reiki works faster and more efficiently because it works at the chakras, auric level, and outer bodies where the physical dis-eases originate. Distant Reiki only needs a few minutes to send and does not take nearly as long as a hands-on treatment. The intention of sending Reiki to the person is what makes it work. Reiki distance healing can be set up to automatically repeat sending energies to a person during a specific timeframe.
All Reiki treatments need permission. It will never violate free will and never do harm. The Practitioner cannot give you “bad” energy but rather is a channel of life force energy from the divine that will clear and enable your own energy to heal you.
