Hawaya Takata has described Reiki as “The greatest secret in the science of energetic”. Reiki is pure energy form. Reiki has its own intelligence and knows exactly where to go and what to do. In fact the practitioner does not direct the Reiki, but it is the healee who draws the energy through the practitioner. Neither the healee nor the practitioner absorbs each other’s energy because the energy is always outward bound from the hands of the practitioner (who acts only as a channel) to the healee. Reiki has a mind of its own and will communicate with the healee’s higher self and use this information where to go and what to do.
We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical 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, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it reduces the functional efficiency of 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, consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts or feelings attached themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This decreases the vital functions of the organs and cells of the physical body.
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 up and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, strengthens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
Reiki leads us back to a state of wholeness in the widest sense of the word. One is brought back into a state of unity with the harmony of the universe. Reiki works through the chakras and endocrine glands to remove energy blocks and to revitalize even the smallest cell, making one whole and healthy again, thus encouraging the natural ability of the patient to heal himself.
Reiki functions are all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It gives you the ability to live a loving, joyful and fuller life .
