"It is a wise person who
waters their own
garden first "
REI : The invisible source of all being.
The word Rei as it is used in Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God or the Higher Self; it is the Consciousness that is all knowing. It understands each person completely, knowing the cause of all problems and difficulties and what to do to heal them.
KI : Universal Life Force.
Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things, circulating through and around them until death, at which time it departs. As long as something is alive, it has life force and if that life force is low or restricted in its flow, there is increased vulnerability to illness. When life force is high and free flowing, there is less susceptibility to sickness. Life force plays an important role in everything we do, animating the body and supplying the primary energy for our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life. It is the non-physical energy used by all healers that is present all around us and it can be accumulated and guided by the mind.
What is Reiki
Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life force energy. The practitioner does not diagnose, or try to control what happens during a treatment. The practitioner's hands are guided to and held still for several minutes in various position on the client's head and body, enabling the the client to connect more deeply with their own source and essence, which in turn can make a big difference in all areas of their lives. It is excellent for people of all ages and can help a wide variety of conditions. A Reiki treatment can be received either seated or lying down with the client remaining fully clothed, and it will last for approximately one hour. It is soothing and relaxing, and induces a feeling of total harmony and well-being throughout the body.
What to expect from a treatment
During the treatment the client will generally feel a pleasant sensation of warmth, or a gentle tingling in the area being treated. They may see colours or visions during a treatment, this is quite normal but it does not mean that the treatment has been any the less effective if it does not happen. The client may even fall asleep during the session but above all else, they will experience a deep sense of relaxation, harmony and well-being that will continue long after the treatment has ended. Many clients report having a really good night's sleep following a Reiki treatment.
What Reiki can do
Reiki can and does work on three levels, physical, emotional and mental. It can address a wide range of physical conditions and is excellent for reducing stress. Regular treatments boost the body's immune system and increase physical energy levels. It can also work on the emotions, calming, soothing and restoring balance and harmony to the whole person. It is a completely safe and natural way of healing and complements the effectiveness of most forms of treatment and medication.
Reiki and your animals
Reiki treatments are also very effective when given to animals who, when they are used to receiving the healing energy absolutely love and benefit from it in much the same way as humans do. A treatment for animals is not 'hands on' and does not take so long.
