REIKI: A JAPANESE SPIRITUAL HEALING PRACTICE
reiki is believed to have originated in japan. ‘rei’ translates to “higher power" and ‘ki’ to "life force energy". reiki is the "spiritually guided life force energy within us."
reiki therapy is a way of guiding energy throughout the body to promote the receiver’s self-healing abilities.
when parts of the body become stressed, they are no longer producing the correct energy waves. in other words, they are not vibrating at their prime or optimal frequency. reiki can help re-establish or recalibrate these frequencies,
what is reiki and why is it beneficial?
reiki is an alternative energy healing therapy. energy healing is a powerful therapy which helps you to connect to your inner source of vibrancy and life force, making it available to shift physical, emotional, and mental dysfunctions to health and well-being. it supports the body’s natural healing abilities. if you're looking for a natural way to relieve pain, ease stress, or help your body heal, reiki is the solution. seeking reiki feels like a wonderful glowing radiance flowing through and around you. reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects which include relaxation, feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
rei translates to higher intelligence, guiding the creation and functioning of the universe. rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything, both animate and inanimate. on a human level, it is available to help us in times of need and to act as a source of guidance in our lives.
ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans. when a person's ki is high, they will feel strong, confident, and ready to enjoy life and take on its challenges. when it is low, they will feel weak and are more likely to get sick. we receive ki from the air we breathe, from food, sunshine, and from sleep. it is also possible to increase our ki by using breathing exercises and meditation.
how can reiki help enhance your mental, physical and emotional well-being?
reiki healing aims to align and stimulate the biomagnetic energy flowing through the body, and this helps promote healing and decrease stress.
reiki is both powerful and gentle. the Physical body has seven main chakra centres. it is through these seven chakras that we transmit and receive physical, emotional, and spiritual energy. this type of energy healing works not only in the first set of seven chakras but into the second through the seventh set of chakras and beyond. it also focuses on the energy field (aura) that surrounds our bodies, organs, and individual cells.
our reiki practitioners at vitruvian wellness address blockages and opens the natural channels of energy allowing them to move to a higher vibrational level, so the mind, body, and spirit are functioning together optimally. the body can then work to reverse dysfunction and disease through its natural ability to heal itself. reiki also contributes to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy. reiki has shown to improve the results of all medical treatments, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, while also reducing stress, and helping to create optimism.
after taking up the practice of reiki, it tends to become a way of life. it invariably opens up the journey towards self-understanding leading to self-improvement. in time, this process matures into the perception of deep personal fulfilment and inner happiness.
in order for the reiki healing energies to have lasting results, one must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. this has been associated with the usui system of reiki healing. the usui system is more than just the use of reiki energy. It also includes an active commitment to improve oneself. its ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practise for their inherent value.
