WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese Energy Healing technique that means “Universal Life Force Energy.” Reiki healing restores the natural balance of energy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We are all made up of Life Force Energy and it flows in and around our bodies. Life Force Energy flows through our energetic anatomy which includes chakras, auras and meridians. It’s very similar to our physical anatomy where we have blood flowing throughout our bodies. When blood is flowing freely we feel great and everything is working properly. However, when there is a disruption in our blood flow symptoms begin to manifest. With our energetic system, if the Life Force Energy can’t flow properly throughout our energy channels due to blocks or imbalances we will start to feel symptoms as well. These symptoms can range from fatigue, feeling off, aches and pains or sadness. If these imbalances or blocks last for a long period of time serious symptoms begin to manifest in the body such as chronic pain and disease. Life Force Energy allows our bodies to heal naturally. Our energetic system is affected first then manifested into our physical bodies.
There are many reasons why our energetic systems can become blocked or imbalanced. Chronic stress keeps our body in fight or flight mode that doesn’t allow the body to naturally heal. Many people don’t know how to unplug and we are constantly ready to fight a threat. Another reason is trauma and most of the time it’s from childhood trauma. When we experience trauma we are overwhelmed with intense emotions that we go into survival mode and these emotions get suppressed. Our body can’t process emotions during a time of survival. These suppressed emotions will continue to be stored in the body if they aren’t properly released afterwards. Probably one of the most surprising reasons for imbalances in the body is our thoughts. The body is the manifestation of the mind and our world is a reflection of the mind. Are you your biggest cheerleader or your biggest critic? When there is a negative thought process there will be a blockage or imbalance in our energy system or chakras.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Reiki healer is a channel for the Life Force energy that moves through the top of their head, to the heart and through their hands to the person receiving the healing energy. The Reiki healer restores balance to each chakra by placing the hands a few inches above the chakra for a few minutes. Once the chakras are balanced, other areas of the body that need attention can be attended to. Reiki helps your body rest and relax so it can do the work that it needs to do.
During the Reiki session many people feel a deep sense of relaxation and peace. Some people feel energy moving through their body, see different colors, muscle twitching, unresolved memories can pop up or many fall asleep. Sometimes there could be an emotional release as well. It's important to drink plenty of water after the session and don't do any vigorous activities a few hours afterwards.
The whole purpose of Reiki is to rebalance the flow of Life Force Energy in our chakras and energy systems. There are 7 main chakras in our energy system that are placed along the spine, or governing meridian, to the top of the head. Chakras are vortexes that spin through the front and back of the body. Each chakras has its own purpose and governs specific areas of the body and areas of our life. For example, the root chakra, which is at the base of the spine, is our survival center. It's concern is whether or not we have our basic needs met such as shelter, security and financial needs. Our chakras are affected by every aspect of our lives including what happens to us, what we do and our thoughts. If someone is experiencing financial issues their root chakra can become imbalanced or blocked causing physical or emotional symptoms such as lower back pain and aggressive behavior. Sometimes if there is a block or imbalance in one chakra the chakras next to it can work on overdrive and can create symptoms as well. There can always be some overlap and more than one reason for an emotional or physical symptom of the body.
