To some people Reiki is mysterious. If you are new to Reiki, you may have many questions such as what is Reiki and how does it work? Does Reiki really work? How could Reiki energy heal me? Let me ask you something, when you experience pain, what do you do?
The reality is we all naturally perform the fundamental essence of Reiki pretty much on daily basis. When you have a headache, where do your hands go? You cradle your head with your hands, right? If your tummy hurts, where do your hands go? You soothe your tummy with your hands. How about with others? What do you do when your little comes and shows you where it hurts? You place your hands in the area that hurts; you kiss the booboo and make it all better.
Why do you do this? What is it that you are doing? It is an instinctive and inherited action. Reiki is a natural healing technique present in humanity since far-off times. For various reasons, its practise disappeared but the reflex action has remained within us. Today again, everybody can practise Reiki. Dr Usui re-discovered it at the beginning of the 20th century. You just have to receive an initiation to open your energetic channel to Reiki.
What is Reiki healing and how does it work?
Reiki is healing energy. The practitioner channels this life force energy through his or her hands to the recipient. Then, the energy goes wherever it is most needed. It releases block energies, cleanses the body of toxins and works to create a state of balance. Think about your headaches again. They often come when you are stressed and worried. It is the physical manifestation of a mental and/or emotional disturbance.
Reiki works with your energetic field. You can notice its benefits at four different levels: spiritual, mental, emotional and physical.
How does Reiki work on the Spiritual level?
The spiritual level has nothing to do with whether you belief in God or not. It refers to your pure essence, the one you were born with. As we grow we learn norms and rules that disconnect us from our essence. Reiki helps us to return to ourselves.
How does Reiki work on the Mental and Emotional levels?
Usually, people perceive the benefits on the mental and emotional level first. Trauma and distress happens to everyone, we all are human. Intellectually we can be over something, but the cells of our body hold onto the trauma. Reiki aids to release buried and stuck emotions; it also helps emotional clearing and brings about a positive mental attitude.
How does Reiki work on the Physical level?
Physical illness comes in relation to every other level. It is simple to understand. Think in your body posture. Where do you face when you are sad? Do you bend down and have dropping shoulders? And when you are happy, do you walk tall and your head is up? Now think in a chronic condition like an ulcer. The stomach is the centre where we store all our worries. Worry is known to stimulate the vagus nerve, and thus causes excess acid segregation in the stomach. The ulcer is just the tip of the iceberg. Reiki always treats at the root cause level.
Physics tell us that energy exists and moves first and matter flows. When we think of a ‘dis-ease’, we need to understand that there is a disturbance on your energy field first and that ends up causing physical changes.
