“When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.”
- Lao Tzu
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese, energy healing technique that has the capacity to guide us into a deep meditative state, helping us to reduce stress induced symptoms, regulates emotional imbalances and supports ones abilities for self-healing.
Reiki can be loosely translated to mean 'universal life force', in Yoga also known as 'Prana'.
‘Rei’ means universal, divine, or spiritual, referring to the subtle consciousness that guides creation. This mysterious intelligence exists everywhere, in everything. It is what transforms a seed into a tree, or a singular cell into a human being.
‘Ki’ is the non-physical vitality that gives life force to all living things.
How Does Reiki Work?
Our bodies have the innate ability to self-heal, but this is only possible when our nervous system is relaxed. In modern culture, we spend most of our time in sympathetic nervous system functioning, our ‘fight or flight’ response to the stresses of day-to-day events. When we live in this constant state of ‘coping’ it can lead to emotional imbalances and physical disease.
The application of Reiki therapy has been observed to activate our parasympathetic nervous system, sometimes referred to as our ‘rest and digest’ mode. When our bodies are in this state, it encourages muscle relaxation, a decrease in heart rate and respiration, stabilisation of blood sugar levels, and regulation of our digestive systems and sleep patterns.
When a connection to the Reiki, the Universe is made, the practitioner becomes a passive, neutral channel, through which the Reiki heals.
'Energy flows where intention goes.'
How does Distant Healing work?
The truth is: we don't know yet. We lack a scientific understanding of HOW it works, the only thing we do know at the moment is THAT it works. In distant healing, the consciousness and intention of the "healer" who channels the healing energy plays the major part, and this is where the problem lies: We do not know what consciousness itself is, and that is why we have no idea how to explain the nature of distant healing. By practicing deep awareness the energy healers train themselves to experience this which usually cannot be seen, tasted, smelled, felt or heard.
Though, what we do know is, that
a) Reiki is a form of energy healing and that energy is not bound neither to time nor space, and
b) Just because we can't perceive something in the common way our senses are used to, it doesn't mean that it's not there.
