Reiki Explained

Reiki is one of the widely known forms of energy healing. Energy healing involves direct application of Chi to the universal life force, for the purpose of bringing the physical, mental and spiritual bodies into alignment.

Reiki is very easy to learn very simple to use and beneficial for all.

It is one of many forms and healing through the use of natural forces, which were given the name Chi by ancient Chinese mystics. Some forms of healing using chi energy forces are Chi Gong, Pranic healing, Chelation and Polarity balancing.

All use the same energies with different techniques of application and energy quality commonly known as vibration.

(This term vibration is used to refer to arrange in experience is between the dense or low vibration of the physical world to the higher vibration of the spiritual world. The term is inadequate to truly describe the difference the term is descriptive of how the energy feels).

Since the word Reiki means universal life force energy, it refers to the energy and not the specific techniques taught by Reiki masters. The techniques are more properly called the “Usui System of Natural Healing. After the founder of the system Dr. Mikao Usui. However Reiki is the common name, and the one most people associate with. Reiki Explained

A Reiki healing is very simple to perform. The practitioner places his or her hands upon the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and the energy begins flowing. The Reiki energy is smart since the universe is a very smart place indeed. The energy knows where to go, and what to do once it gets there, or else is being directed by a higher intelligence. The energy manager its own flow to and within the recipient. It draws through the healer exactly the amount of energy the recipient needs. All this happens without direct conscious intervention by the healer. The healer’s job is to get out of the way, to keep the healing space open and to watch and listen for signs of what to do next.


Reiki is capable of healing anything because it works at a very fundamental level of reality. Even though the capability is there, this is not what always happens.
The limits of Reiki seemed to be in the recipient’s willingness to cast off old habits and patterns, to accept change and healing. The level of reality we are Reiki operates is the underlying energy structure of matter, as the physical matter we see around us is a solidified firm of energy. At the level where Reiki works anything can be changed because is fluid like and very malleable. Emotional difficulties are just as healable as physical ones since emotional issues are even more directly present in the energy structures.

In this context the word healing has a somewhat different meaning from the widely accepted meaning. Which seems to be curing of symptoms, for that seems to be what medical doctors and the like look to do in their practices. The other meaning for healing used in the practice of Reiki as well as other related areas, is the return to greater wholeness. There is an ideal form each of us has, this ideal form being the highest and clearest expression of who we are. Pain and disease comes from any deviation between the person’s current form in the physical world and this ideal form. Healing then is to bring this physical form into closer alignment with the ideal form.

The way we acquire deviations from our ideal form is to accept limitations into our life.

Most of this comes from early childhood because that is the phase of life where we are most open and inquisitive about life. A limitation maybe a parent yelling “Be Quite!!” enough times that the child learns not to speak. Another limitation may be a limp continues long after the physical injury has healed, maybe with phantom pains. These limitations are behaviour patterns, eating patterns, physical limitations, imagined physical limitations, psychological, mental or emotional ways of being, living, expressing or loving that is not in alignment with our personal highest expression.

In any healing the goal is to find the limitation, recognize the pattern, recognize where it came from and to let it go.

Reiki accomplishes this by providing the recipient enough energy to step above (metaphorically) to see all that and have the courage to let go. This usually does not happen consciously as a result of Reiki, but sometimes it does happen that Reiki gives the recipient the conscious awareness of the pattern and recognizing where it came from. Our lives are a constant flow of patterns of activity and it is our choice, to have the patterns remain stuck in limited expression, or to release old patterns and try on new and shinier ones.

Reiki is also a gateway shining pure love into the universe. It is this love which allows us to transcend our wounds and help us remember our true nature.

It is not massage
It is not religion
It is not a substitute for traditional medical treatment.
