REIKI: Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy
Definition of Reiki:
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese form of healing approach that uses light touch from the practitioner to channel healing energy to the recipient. It is derived from Rei, meaning "free passage" or "transcendental spirit" and Ki, meaning "vital life force energy" or “universal life energy". Therefore, reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy There are three levels in reiki, each providing additional power symbols which are used in treating the problems. With each level the practitioner gets attuned by his reiki master for stronger symbols. It is also known as Mana, Chi, Bioplasma, Prana, the Holy Spirit and light. Through Reiki, the soul unites with the collective consciousness. It makes the body’s self healing system energized and stability steadily returns. A Reiki session can take thirty to sixty minutes. The recipient lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner puts the hands for some minutes on precise areas or over the body, so energy establishes stability to the entire system.
Benefits from Reiki:
Reiki is used to relieve physical and emotional pain and to promote spiritual clarity. It also speeds the healing process and balances the body's energy. It can easily incorporate elements of nearly every other alternative healing therapy like spiritual-healing, aura- cleaning, crystal- healing, chakra balancing, meditation, aromatherapy and homeopathy, color therapy etc. Reiki utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy or in other words ‘Prana’ within the body. The benefits of reiki in reference to both bodies and buildings have been discussed taking both of them individually.
Benefits for the living beings:
Reiki is a very helpful alternate therapy that not only treats any physical wound but to also treat conditions like trauma, emotional problems, depression, lethargy etc. It not only provides cosmic energy to the patient through the media, i.e., the reiki practitioner but at the same time also energizes the practitioner himself.
It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on all levels: body, mind, and spirit. It is also capable enough to treat people by sending energy vibrations wherever they are, in cases hands-on treatment is not possible. Reiki is useful in treating serious illnesses as well as others. Examples of some of the common ailments are like: sports injuries, cuts, burns, internal diseases, emotional disorders, and stress-related illnesses. Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibration frequency of the body. It is very helpful in stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
Being a Reiki practitioner myself, I have practically seen cases where Reiki has been very useful in providing quick relief in problem like cuts, headache, migraine, burns. It is very helpful in recharging the body energy and removing fatigue. It has been observed that it not only increases the memory but also helps in increasing concentration. As for cases involving diseases like cancer, accidental cases etc it helps in making the immune system strong enough to fight the disease and also helps in recovery. It has also been noticed that medicine energized by reiki symbols show much better results. When used along with other therapies it has been seen that the results from that particular therapyincreases significantly. It is the best techniques for the people who work in the night shifts as it helps them to overcome stress and working against the biological cycle.
