I recently won the opportunity to do my level one in Reiki healing in a raffle. I didn’t have a clue what it was but I thought, what the heck I’ll go along anyway as I had won it. As I was sat there listening to the Practitioner/Teacher telling us what it was all about I was ready to just walk out as I thought she was talking rubbish, all this about energy in and around us. I am now proud to say I have carried out Reiki self-healing every day since I passed the course. Basically, if you don’t know what Reiki is, it’s a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If your "life force energy" is low, then you are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, you are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance or heat that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many people do say they have seen fantastic results.
If this all sounds as mad as it did to me, then I urge you to have a go at having some treatment yourself and see if you feel the benefits that I have now starting to see and feel.
