This is my jam! I love Reiki, and received my master’s certificate in January 2017. I also belong to the International Reiki Organization.
Qi is not some primordial, immutable material, nor is it merely vital energy, although the word is occasionally so translated. Chinese thought does not easily distinguish between matter and energy. We might think that Qi is somewhere in between, a kind of matter on the verge of becoming energy, or energy at the point of materializing.
What is Reiki, Anyway? An ancient form of energy healing, discovered by a Japanese monk while in meditation. He learned that Reiki energy, the life force, or chi, that runs through us, is available to all for healing and balancing one’s own energetic body.
We carry our emotions and stress in our physical bodies: just think of the clenched teeth, the knot in your stomach, the tense shoulders. This constant tension disrupts the body’s natural healing response, and in an energetic sense, is considered to be disrupting the flow of chi or energy throughout your energetic body. Any negative thoughts, words, and inputs that we receive throughout our days and our busy lives, get stored in our body if we don’t process them… and most of us don’t.
Reiki brings the universal life force energy to you, to clear and balance your energetic body. This has a direct impact on your emotions, and recipients experience a feeling of calm and relaxation right away. Many even fall asleep during a session! The deep relaxation provided during this rebalancing then has an effect on your physical body, via the clearing and reduction of stress and energetic blocks.
What makes Reiki special when compared to other energy healing techniques, is that the practitioner is acting as a channel, or conduit, of Reiki energy. The energy does not come from the healer, nor does the recipient’s energy flow “backwards” to the healer. The session is always conducted with the intention of the highest good for all.
If you have any questions about it, want to know more, or want to experience this deep relaxation for yourself, please contact me, or book a session using the links at the top of the page! Remember, energy is not bound by space or physical distance, so Reiki sessions can even be held from across the world!
