Energy is Everywhere and Everything
Absolutely everything is Energy. Energy flows through us and all around us and it connects us to everything. Most of this continuous ebb and flow of energy occurs beyond our conscious awareness, it just happens. This in itself is a big concept to get your head around. There is an invisible life force energy that flows through all living things. Sometimes it’s light and free, other times it is slower and more brooding. We are connected to the energy in the environment, we are connected to communities on the other side of the planet, we are connected to everything in the universe. We are all connected.
Your Body is a Self Healing Wonder
The body, your body is an incredibly intricate and fascinating mechanical wonder. It’s the ultimate super computer and it’s sole aim is to heal and regulate and thrive. No matter what you put in, it‘s only function is to be healthy. When energy becomes trapped inside your body problems will begin to occur. These blocks can happen for any number of reasons including physical; injury, mental; beliefs or emotional; stress & anxiety. Energy gets blocked, the body cannot heal and disease occurs.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing practice discovered in 1900s. It is a modality whereby a practitioner accesses life force energy and channels it to facilitate the healing of others. It is a modality that promotes relaxation, reduces stress & anxiety and has a range of other physical and emotional health benefits.
This is not massage and there is no physical manipulation used in the practice. Instead, the Reiki practitioner places their hands gently on or just above the clients clothed body with the intention for healing and encouraging a healthy flow of energy. Working with the subtle healing energy that exists in the biofield it is possible to facilitate physical, emotional, and mental self-healing for those who receive it.
The principle of Reiki is that the practitioner is not a healer, nor the source of the healing energy. Instead they act as an open channel, similar to a garden hose for the energy to be taken from the universe and used by the reiki recipient to activate their own innate self-healing abilities.
