Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy), thus Reiki is quite literally Universal Life Energy. Its current style of practise was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s. Reiki practitioners have to complete 3 levels before being attuned to being a Reiki Master, which allows them to preform Reiki Healing even from a distance to their patients.
Life Force Energy
It is not a secret that the world consists of energy, everything is energy. Everything has a frequency, for instance sound has a frequency, animals, humans and insects all have frequencies. The interactions of inter communications between plants and animals are all on a type of frequency, or energy within quantum physics.
So how is this Life Force Energy affect us, humans?
Just like everything else in the universe, humans are also energy. Despite popular belief that we are humans having a spiritual experience, we are in fact, Spiritual Beings, having a human experience. So therefor we are Energy.
We have two bodies; a physical body on this physical plane and an energy body, also known as a Soul or Spirit. The physical Body and the Spiritual Body need each other in order to be alive in this dimension. In Dr Rick Strassmans Book called DMT the Spirit Molecule, it is explained that the Pineal Gland holds and distributes DMT and DMT is considered to be the Spirit Molecule, which is the scientific explanation of how our soul is connected to our bodies in other words; DMT the Spirit Molecule is holding our energy body to our physical body. DMT is released by the Pineal Gland twice in our life time, when we are born and when we die. The Pineal Gland is much more protected than the brain, and yet it does absolutely nothing for the functioning of the biological body, it was an easy yet profound discovery to make, a scientifical biological physical link from our bodies to the spiritual world.
When a person falls ill, it is not only the physical factors that contributes to the persons illness, but also the energy body may have issues too. Thus both need treating for the patient to heal.
Most Reiki Masters, including myself, work with energy to unblock the blockages in the energy fields, thus opening a flow of energy and allowing your Spirit to heal itself with your body. To do this we focus on our patients’ Chakra’s
The Reiki Master will gently transfer energy from the palm of their hands to the patient, directing the energy to open and activate all Chakras, unblocking the energy and encouraging its healing.
What are some benefits of Reiki Healing?
Some Conditions that Reiki Healing has shown to be of assistance in the healing process;
Reiki is a practise that is thousands of years old, it is the most un-evasive treatment available to a patient that not only works but brings profound experiences to the receiver. If the patient is willing, Reiki can provide closure between the body and the spirit, allowing the patient to be more consciously aware of his or her spiritual wisdom.
I often explain this to people, our physical bodies contains Air, right? That’s Oxygen in the environment, our bodies contain water right? That’s the sea in the environment, our bodies contain Iron and Magnesium and all else that the planet contains, that’s the Earth in our environment, so what does this mean? We contain all of the Earth’s DNA, we are quite literally a small version of the entire planet, we contain every particle that is needed to make the Earth live.
So what’s not to say our Spirits are like this too? It is my firm belief, that our Energy bodies or Spirits hold every single DNA of the entire universe. And by accessing this information we attain wisdom. But how do we access this wisdom?
Answer is simple; Meditation.
