What is Reiki?
Reiki is pure chi, life force energy. This life force balances emotion and nourishes every cell in the body. It is the vibration that keeps us in alignment with the universe and with nature. Chi (chi or prana) is the subtle energy that flows through the meridians and chakras, the body’s energy systems. Rei- is the universal power that unites us all. Acupuncture and reflexology are two common modalities that affect this energy.
Reiki is a touch therapy, placing hands lightly on or over various energy centers of the body or wherever life force is low. Healing energy, chi, flows through the practitioner to the client. While receiving Reiki, many experience deep relaxation, clarity, easing of aches and tension, a sense of calm, and increased well-being. The body enters a parasympathetic state, which initiates rest, healing, sleep, and optimal digestion. Well-being of mind, body, and spirit can only be attained when we are in homeostasis, or balance.
Energy is everything
In 1992, Bruce Tainio at Eastern State University in Washington built the world’s first frequency monitor. He found that a healthy human body has an energy signature of 62-MHz; however, cancer resides in 42-MHz, Epstein Barr resides in 52-MHz, and colds and flu’s set in at 58-MHz. When frequency drops, the immune system is weakened. It is paramount to keep our vibrations high!
Daily thoughts and feelings that are negative in nature (anger, worry, resentment, fear, guilt, etc.) can easily impact life force or vibration. These harmful thoughts and feelings disrupt the flow of chi throughout the body, and the energy force given to organs is diminished. Many people who live with anger experience low energy to the liver area, for example.
When life force is low, we experience symptoms of a weakened system like low mood, worry, sleep issues, brain fog, and fatigue. We also become more susceptible to dis-ease states and illness because our vibration is low.
External factors that deplete our life force are media, violent movies or television shows, bodily trauma through accidents, music with negative lyrics, unhealthy relationships, disrespectful workplaces, substance abuse (alcohol, cigarettes, sugar, hard drugs), and environmental chemical and electromagnetic toxins. Just the opposite, positive thoughts and body loving habits raise our frequency.
How Reiki Helps
Reiki, whether its a distant or one-on-one session or even on one’s self, is great for increasing life force energy or vibration. It promotes relaxation, instills a deep sense of peace, and reduces the harmful effects of stress. By increasing life force throughout the body, you feel more centered and heal more quickly, and begin moving toward your ideal set point for mental, physical, and spiritual balance. Your natural healing mechanisms are ignited.
The proven benefits of Reiki include
1. Stress Reduction and Increased Relaxation
90% of illness is due to stress. Stress can create irregular heart rhythms, increased cortisol, digestive issues, weight gain, mood issues, sexual dysfunction, and so much more. Reiki begins to unwind the harmful effects of stress.
2. Uplifted Mood and Greater Calm
Studies have demonstrated the increased sense of well-being with Reiki. These benefits are more pronounced in those with negative mood states. As mood improves, consistent feelings of worry, anger, and sadness soften. Sleep often deepens becomes more effortless as thoughts and feelings become more positive and in alignment with a higher state.
3. Improved Wellbeing during Cancer Treatment
The journal Integrative Cancer Therapy reports that when Reiki was received for five straight days followed by a week without treatment and then two more Reiki sessions, those undergoing treatment for various cancers reported significant decreases in tiredness, pain, and anxiety, and improved quality of life.
Reiki is becoming one of the most accepted forms of alternative medicine in many hospitals around the world. It is noninvasive, gentle, and safe. Reiki can benefit all aspects of being from preconception to pregnancy and infancy to elder years.
