REIKI: A FIRST AID KIT IN YOUR HANDS
Reiki – pronounced (ray key) is an ancient technique for stress reduction, relaxation that promotes healing. It is a technique practiced by Tibetan monks over 2500 years ago, which was lost over time. Mikao Usui rediscovered Reiki in Japan in the late1800s. “Rei” means “God’s wisdom or the Higher Power” and “ki” (also known as chi or prana) is “life force energy.” Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen “spiritually guided life force energy” flows through you and is what causes you to be alive. If your “life force energy” is low or out of balance, you are more likely to have a stressful life.
THE REIKI SESSION
Reiki is safe, simple and natural. It is a gentle energy and it is non-invasive and is practiced safely on adults, children, babies, animals and plants. Reiki speeds up the healing process of cuts, burns, bruises, stings, sport injuries, fractures (after set by a medical practitioner) and operations. Reiki also increases the benefits of all other therapies and medications received by you. Reiki restores harmony and balance by reducing stress, tension, pain, improves self-confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness, and zest for living. Reiki is the “conscious” use of “unconscious” knowledge or spiritual knowing and, it works regardless of whether you believe in it or not.

A Reiki session usually lasts 1 hour. The recipient simply sits in a chair or lies on a couch and there is no need to remove clothing, as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner may gently place their hands non-intrusively or hold their hands a few centimeters away from the body in a sequence of positions. Reiki treats the physical, emotional and mental bodies rather than specific symptoms.
In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing. The client has to be willing to surrender to the healing and take an active part much like a prescribed medication cannot work unless the patient takes it. The clients must invest themselves in their healing; there can be no resistance. The Usui system of Reiki involves more than the use of the Reiki energy; it requires an active commitment to self-improvement in order for there to be a complete energy system. A session creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation, feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
CAN ANYONE LEARN?
Reiki is an amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during an “attunement” given by a Reiki Master, which allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve health and enhance quality of life. Reiki’s use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. Reiki has been successfully “taught” to thousands of people of all ages and from a wide range of backgrounds.
