Reiki is a natural healing technique that gently balances Life Force Energy and brings health and well-being to the energy system of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. One of the greatest Reiki health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities, and improves and maintains health.
This simple healing technique works with divine, higher energy to promote health and well-being of all the energy bodies. Therefore, it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of Mind, Body and Spirit.
Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by working within the energy field, allowing the flow of the energy from divine source (God) to the client via the Reiki practitioner. It is extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channeled to yourself and others, just by intention.
Reiki is a pure energy form. When it is combined with the sincere desire and intention of the person receiving healing, this enables the physical and energy bodies to be nourished by the Life Force Energy, which enables them to become balanced and then healing can occur.
An example of how Reiki works is to imagine that the Reiki practitioner is like a battery charger connected to an unlimited source of energy. They direct this powerful charge to the client whose battery is low or drained due to dis-ease, stress, negative emotions, etc. When the client receives the charge, it goes where it is most needed to help with the healing and balancing that is necessary.
Benefits of Reiki
When the Life Force Energy is no longer flowing freely due to being disrupted, weakened or blocked, then emotional or health challenges tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: negative thoughts and feelings – including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety; physical or emotional trauma; destructive lifestyle and relationships; injury; negative self-talk; toxins; nutritional depletion; neglect of self and lack of love for oneself and others; and from emotions that are not felt and expressed in a healthy way.
Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it offers wonderful results.

When we are relaxed and stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability for the body to heal itself.
Long term practice of Reiki can restore the health of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to properly deal with stress and toxins, along with coping with anxiety and depression in a natural way that the body understands.
When a person is in good health, regular Reiki sessions will increase the body’s natural defenses. This will show itself as a more positive outlook on life, creating confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events.
Reiki will also help in quicker recover from ailments and illnesses by providing more Life Force Energy. A Reiki session can also induce higher states of consciousness upon one’s spiritual journey.
Reiki can never do harm and can only heal as it is guided by divine consciousness and goes where it is needed, as much as it is needed. Reiki knows what a person needs and will adjust to create the appropriate effect. It is the same consciousness that knows how and when to heal a cut or illness in our physical body.
For this reason, no two Reiki experiences are ever the same, so you do not know what may happen. By accepting this and allowing the energy to do what is needed, it will support your natural healing process and the benefits will show themselves to you. Your body will decide what it needs to become whole and healthy. With Reiki, the practitioner is not doing the healing, it is also much easier for them to let go of the ego and allow the presence of Life Force Energy (God) to do the necessary work.
When using Reiki with other natural therapies, such as meditation, crystals, aroma therapy, etc, their effectiveness will be amplified.
Reiki complements and enhances the health care treatments that patients receive in the hospital or form other health care providers. It is beneficial to the health of women (even pregnant), men and children, and is also excellent when used on animals (dogs, cats, horses), even plants, water and more.
Reiki is an amazing technique for any situation and condition.
About the Usui System of Reiki Healing
This natural healing modality originates in Tibet. The name “Reiki” (ray-key) comes from the technique as re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist in the early 20th century.
“Re” means “Universal” and it is a general term for spirit or unseen spiritual quality, which serves as channel for “Ki” or “Life Force Energy” (some call it God, Buddha, Chi, Qi, Love, or your preference). It relates to the superior, all-encompassing cosmic energy from which all other minor energies of the universe draw their power. Everything in the universe is made up of energy particles which form the Omniscient, All-Knowing Source of Creation. The Vital Living Energy Force comes in different manifestations of energy and one of these being the frequencies in which Reiki was born.
The Usui System of Natural Healing teaches us also the “Secret Art” of “Inviting Happiness” into our life which can be achieved by working with the Five Reiki Ideals and the Three Degrees of Attunements. The Five Reiki Ideals help us realize that improving oneself is an essential part of Reiki healing.
How Reiki Works
Reiki provides a means to balance the human energy field (aura) and energy centers (Chakras) to create conditions needed for the body’s healing system to function as it was meant to.
The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple “laying on of hands,” however actual touch is not necessary for healing to occur. The practitioner channels the Universal Life Force Energy, allowing it to flow where it is needed to bring the energy centers, and energy system, into alignment, balance and harmony.
The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows and is an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the person being healed to manifest harmony and balance in their own life.
