Reiki is a Japanese Healing Art based on ancient wisdom. From health to financial abundance, Reiki can be used to create abundance in every aspect of life.

The word itself derives from two elements. ‘Rae’, which means Universal, and ‘Ki’ that refers to Life Force Energy, or that which gives us life. Thus we can refer to Rei-ki as The Universal Life Force Energy or the vital energy that’s we are connected to through breath.

Every time we breathe, we bring into ourselves this Universal Life Energy. It is also said that, Rae is he Universal Spirit (also called God or The Source) and Ki is manifestation of that spirit in all living creatures; however, this healing art has no religious affiliation
of any kind.

Therefore, when we work with Reiki, we are working with the Spiritual Force or the energy that we all share, that lies within us and is available to us all. We do this with the intention to balance our chakras or sacred energy centers from which all of our functions, integration and enlightenment spring from.

When our chakras are in balance we enjoy physical, emotional and spiritual health. There are seven main chakras: crown, brow/third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and base/root.

Each chakra represents one energy center that corresponds to nerve endings and ganglia that branch out from the spine. Furthermore, each center is associated with stages of development, archetypes, colors and sounds, physiological functions, mental awareness and states of consciousness, as well as other aspects of being.

Basic Characteristics of Every Chakra

Reiki works in a comprehensive manner. It offers to empower and balance your chakra energy system to bring your body, mind, emotions, and spirit into harmony. When we work with this energy we do it in a non-invasive, kind and compassionate way by positioning our hands in specific places on or above the body (with or without touch) with a focused intention to heal or make things better.

This healing therapy does NOT rely on physical manipulation like massage therapy, physiotherapy or chiropractic manipulation. It doesn’t need drugs, medication or herbs for it to work either.

Furthermore, there is no diagnosis made and unlike Allopathic Medicine, Reiki has not different ‘treatments’ for specific ailments or diseases.

As you study this healing art, you will come across many different modalities. Last I heard there were over 40. This can be overwhelming and confusing, especially if you are just starting to get familiar with this healing art. Therefore, I suggest you stick to Usui Reiki as this is the one from which all those other modalities or practices have derived from.

The main focus of Reiki is on healing those energy patterns that may be disrupted or blocked. These blocks have caused the clogging -or closing- of our chakras which in turn have brought about unwanted signs and symptoms that are creating discomfort and disease.

Our energy flow can get obstructed as a result of a variety of energy-snatching causes like negative experiences, worries, feelings, emotions, day to day stress, and even germs and pollution.

Thus, manipulating our energy will help us recover the balance in the energy flow within so we can live in harmony in both, our inner and our outer worlds.

Reiki therapy is totally harmless and has a wide range of uses. As mentioned above, there is no specific cure for a muscle pain or a headache. And there is no special treatment for depression or anxiety either. The same form of Reiki can be used to heal any ailment and complaint because it focuses in healing the spirit as a whole and at its core.

This treatment helps reduce stress and apprehension; it lessens pain, relaxes, brings calmness to counteract the effects of a busy lifestyle, and creates a deep sense of peace and well being. This healing art can be used on all living creatures -humans, animals and plants- as well as to “cure” disruptions in the energy field of the surrounding environment and even to clear the energy around your business.

Yes, as amazing as this may sound, Reiki has also been used to create financial abundance.

It aids in the removal of blocks that may be clogging up energy paths which prevent us from moving forward in business.

Another fascinating aspect of Reiki is that physical distance is irrelevant.

Distance healing can be performed to help those that are far away, and even to send peace to certain parts of the Globe.

The results of distant healing are not well understood, but it is believed that we share this life force through an invisible net that links us all; so when we are working with this powerful energy, we are directing the healing force through the net –so to speak- to a specific target and with a particular intention.

To bring this all up to a simple definition, this healing art is a gentle, non-invasive, non-drug healing therapy that nurtures a sense of balance and harmony with the intention to heal the individual as a whole… the all encompassing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.

Isn’t it awesome? The power to heal ourselves and others lies in our hands… literally!
