What is Reiki?

"Reiki is wisdom and truth" - Hawayo Takata

Reiki can be defined as a universal life force energy. Reiki, the Usui system of natural healing is not only the most simple and natural healing method we know of, but it is also the most effective way of transferring this life force energy. Once a person has been opened up to become a channel of reiki, concentrated life energy will flow through their hands of its own accord and they will retain this ability for the rest of their lives.

Reiki is a method, of transferring universal life giving energy, for the harmony of the body, mind and soul. In essence reiki is love ‘a living ocean of energy’ that guides itself with its own wisdom and automatically flows to heal wherever it is required. It addresses both the cause and effect of illness. It is also useful as a took for self awareness, self transformation and for releasing many unwanted issues from the past. Reiki is a powerful self healing method that also promotes complete reaction. Rei means “Universal” and Ki means “Life force”. Ki is the non physical energy used by all healers. It is all around us and can be accumulated and guided by the mind.

Reiki is a non physical energy that animates all living things. As long as something is alive it has a life force circulating through it and surrounding it. When it dies the life force departs. If your life force is low or if there is a restriction in its flow you will more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. Life force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.

Distance Healing

Distance Healing means healing without bodily contact. Distance healing is very useful for someone requiring treatment who is in hospital or living far away in a different town or country. It can be transferred to anyone on earth. This method can be immediately put to use once the treatment has been requested by letter, email or over the phone. Once the arrangement has been made to treat the person with distance healing, it is important that a time is arranged so the recipient should preferably not be active during the arranged time, but should sit, or better still lie down.

It is very important to supply the full name of the person that requires the healing and a characteristic photograph of the person will be necessary before commencement of the treatment. However, in urgent cases we have been able to successfully carry out treatment with nothing more than the general description of the person involved.

A series of treatments consists of a cycle of 21 days which provides the person with a consistent healing period. Three months of distance healing is highly recommended for anyone who is suffering from a major illness, in hospital, has a serious blood disorder or is recovering from an operation.

The results of distance healing are in no way inferior to those attained by the direct method. Payment can be made by cheque/postal order/ bank transfer and is required at the commencement of the treatment. The cost is £120, $150 for each 21 day cycle.

We are alive in this world because energy or life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body and covers each part of the body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body and act as a protective shield, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes improper functionality in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept either consciously or unconsiously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts 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.
