What is Reiki? A brief history.
Reiki is not a religion. The use of Reiki energy can be traced back for thousands of years spanning many diverse cultures and civilisations. The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words, Rei (meaning the Higher power) and Ki (meaning life force energy.)
The laying on of hands for healing goes back in history as far Jesus and probably even beyond. Mikao Usui, a Japanese teacher, introduced the use of symbols, following a spiritual awakening on Mount Kurama. He tested the new healing practice on his family and saw immediate results.
In 1922 he began teaching Reiki and the introduction of Reiki into the western world is attributed to one of his pupils, Mrs Hawayo Takata.
Reiki is based on 5 principles: –
Just for today: –
I will not worry
I will not be angry
I will do my work honestly
I will give thanks for many blessings
I will be kind and respectful to all living things.
How does Reiki Work?
Reiki is a universal life force energy that is channelled through the body of the practitioner into the client, by placing hands on or hovering above, certain parts of the body. The universal energy removes negativity which is held in the client’s body, replacing it with positive energy.
The practitioner places their hands on a number of positions covering the 7 major Chakras of the body, acting as a channel for energy. The energy then begins to move through the client’s system naturally, directing itself to the source of any imbalances. The outcome of each individual’s treatment is different as each person draws into themselves the amount of energy that they need to bring about the necessary changes.
Reiki is a powerful tool for physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
What can you expect from your Reiki treatment?
Your Reiki treatment will take place in a comfortable environment either lying on a bed or sitting in a chair if you prefer. You are not required to remove any clothing except your shoes and your dignity will be respected at all times.
During the treatment you may experience a range of temperatures; you may see colours or pictures or you may feel emotions. This is your body’s way of starting the process of clearing the negativity from your mind, body and soul and can also be the start of your spiritual journey. You may not experience anything – this too is perfectly normal as every client is different.
