I have completed my Reiki I and II training, attuned with Elizabeth Harley, Master Reiki Teacher. I have also studied with and received attunements from Lisa Powers, through to Master level.
It is an intensely therapeutic treatment. Working on the body's energy stores (Chakras) it is the system of giving universal life force energy which stimulates the organic healing process. This Reiki energy accelerates the benefits of other complementary therapies.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is 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 one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
We are alive because life force is flowing through us though pathways called chakras or meridians. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
