What is Reiki?

reiki May 04, 2018

Reiki is an ancient healing energy that was re-discovered by Dr Usui in the late 1800’s. It is defined as Universal or Spiritual (Rei-) Life force or Energy (ki).

 Reiki is a simple yet powerful healing energy system that helps to restore harmony within the body spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. 

A session of Reiki increases health and vitality. The body has an incredible ability to heal itself and Reiki promotes this healing system, it aids relaxation and reduces stress by dissolving negative emotions, releasing blocked energies within the body and aura and detoxing the mind and body.

A lot of people can be nervous and curious on their first reiki session. They don't know what to expect. A lot of people think you have to take your clothes off and that it is going to be similar to a massage. This is not the case. Reiki can be carried out when the person is fully clothed, sitting, standing, lying down - even in a different country (That's for a different day!!). Before the reiki healing your Reiki Practitioner/Master will carry out a very short consultation where they will get to know you a little bit more and your reasons for being drawn to your session - whether physical/emotional or spiritual. Then you will lie down on the reiki bed and enjoy your healing session. This can last anything from about 20-60 minutes. A lot of my clients fall asleep during their sessions as they feel a deep sense of relaxation and peace. Many people report having vivid dreams, visualisations, seeing colours, animals, people, memories. There may be physical sensations also like tingles, cool, heat, a sense of floating. Sometimes when a lot of energy is being cleared some people can feel emotional or anxious. this is important to know because this is a great sign that the emotions are being cleared for good :) Your Reiki Practitioner will clear any blockages in your energy field, cleanse your chakras, aura and fill your energy body with beautiful positive energy. 

After your session your Reiki Practitioner may have picked up some guidance for you. This will only ever be positive for your healing journey. You will feel the effect of the session all day, you may feel tired and emotional or you may feel positive and energised. Whatever way you feel is perfect for you.
