Reiki healing is a practice that is thousands of years old and is a very simple and powerful form of healing. It is thought to have been first used by Tibetan Buddhist monks but was rediscovered in the late 1800’s by Dr Mikao Usai.
There is no religion directly connected to Reiki healing; it is a simplistic but deeply spiritual process whereby both the practitioner and the client are filled with Reiki energy. This energy is within us and around us all the time, and is also referred to as universal energy, life-force energy, the source, or God’s energy. During a Reiki treatment this energy is increased and directed to where it is required within the body to unblock energy channels to promote healing and a sense of well-being on all levels. Reiki energy is known as an intelligent energy, meaning that it knows where it is needed, and because it is pure and cannot be corrupted or abused Reiki is the safest and most effective form of spiritual healing.
In my introduction I mention that Reiki is the method which not only improved my health considerably, but also assisted with my profound spiritual awakening, and because of the significance of this statement I would now like to share this recent inspiration I received, based on important aspects of the energy of Reiki.
Reiki is the life-force energy of the universe in the form of love and Light; That is, the Eternal Divine Light, which must be differentiated from the light of the sun and other star systems that our planet is commonly illuminated by. This energy has been around for infinity and it is the source from where we came from and where we will eventually return to. To realise this, an understanding must first be established that we are a multidimensional energy system, connecting us to Mother Earth, our planet and the universe which are also separate multidimensional energy systems, and joining us to all of creation. Once this is understood, the concept of Reiki healing makes sense.
The numerous invisible bands of energies circling our planet, inside and out, are vital to sustain life here. Some of the energies support different dimensions and realms – Your ‘space’ here on Earth is shared with others, and often go unnoticed until your perception alters and this is when you are able to see or sense angels, spirits, fairies etc. You are connected to these energies by your seven main chakras – base (root), sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye (brow) and crown. These are your most significant because your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies which make up your ‘whole’ self, rely on these chakras for their wellbeing.
Chakras reside in a dimension within your own energy system. Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy and the main ones are located along the central line of the body, from the base of the spine to the top of the head and each one is a separate consciousness which require love and Light in the form of Reiki healing – replenishment from the energy of the universe, the life-force – to promote well-being.
Chakras spin in relation to your own energy level, determined by many factors surrounding all aspects of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. In order for a chakra to spin it must be balanced. But when there are blockages and imbalances in your energy system the chakras become unbalanced and as a consequence you become unwell. Therefore, in order to maintain your health on all levels it is vital your chakras are balanced. Reiki energy, when directed into your body not only balances the chakras, it heals them too.
Your body has an amazing ability to heal itself but there are times when it requires help because the causes of illnesses and diseases, especially chronic conditions, are complex due to the structure of your energy system which requires healing on all levels of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Reiki is able to achieve this and indeed, it has been found that when the energy of an illness/disease is removed or dissolved during a Reiki treatment, healing will take place as a result, either by the body naturally, or by using conventional medicinal treatments.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Reiki energy is not only its ability to promote physical healing, but also emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. In particularly, the advance in spiritual development of those who receive and those giving Reiki is often quite astounding, and it has only recently been acknowledged that Reiki is responsible for starting many on their spiritual journey. It is widely commented on that in order to achieve enlightenment a spiritual awareness needs to be created and there is no doubt that Reiki treatments facilitate this.
Reiki energy, during a treatment by a practitioner who has been attuned to Reiki symbols in the proper way, flows into a person’s whole energy body, guided by a Higher Consciousness, and promotes healing, maintains well-being, dispels negative emotions, develops intuition and self-awareness, and creates a state of loving kindness.
Sometimes we have to step outside the confines of our own belief systems in order to unveil a higher consciousness.
