What Is Reiki Anyway?

Let’s get a little more in depth to better understand Reiki…

Reiki is a non-invasive therapy that directs vital universal energy into your subtle energy bodies.

Vital universal energy is the base of every living thing on the planet. It is what makes us more than molecules, it feeds our souls and helps us grow as individuals.

Vital energy is the difference between us living and being ALIVE.

It can be referred to as ‘spirit’, ‘prana’, ‘chi’, ‘ruah’– or in this case ‘ki’.

The phrase ‘subtle energy bodies’ sounds more complex than it is.

It’s a simple breakdown of your whole self into 4 layers: Your physical body, you mental awareness, your emotional state, and your soul.

Each of these bodies team together to create the essence of who you are.

Your 4 subtle energy bodies are heavily interconnected; if something is misaligned within one it directly effects the others.

It has been scientifically proven that emotional and mental distress can actually cause physical ailments and disease in the body.

 Take a look at the chart below, and see if you are feeling any of your emotions physically.

Acknowledging a connection between any of these emotions and where you may feel tension or discomfort in your own body is where Reiki comes in.

Reiki floods the bodies with light and positive energy, raising the deepest seeded emotional issues to the surface.

This in turn causes the receiver to acknowledge, confront, and work through any negative thoughts and emotions they have been holding onto.

We all bury emotions for one reason or another, but this can cause physical deterioration and emotional disconnection in the long term.  Confronting them is the only way to not only maintain well-being; but grow into our full potential.

Being full of light allows us to stand up and face the things we choose to bury.
