What is Reiki?
It is a spiritual healing technique and an energy healing technique.  Spiritual healing connects you with universal Consciousness bringing Spiritual growth by healing core patterns and issues and helping you remember the fullness of “who you are”.  Energy healing brings relief of pain and symptoms in the mind, body, and emotions.

It is unseen, non-physical energy that is the “Life Force Energy” in all things.  When your Life Force Energy is low it is more likely that you will become ill and feel more effects from stress.  When your Life Force Energy is high, you are more capable of staying healthy and happy.  It can become depleted due to negativity or disharmonious thoughts, which can attach themselves to your energy field (or aura).  Reiki raises your vibrations to remove this negativity and turn it into positive energy, thus removing negative thoughts and feelings.  It clears and heals your energy pathways to allow the Life Force to flow smoothly and naturally, bringing your entire system to balance.

It brings you to understand the purpose of life, establishes the “Self” which is aware of the “True meaning of Life” as part of Universal Consciousness; connects you to higher levels of consciousness.  It is Spiritually guided, is an individual experience and a powerful tool for personal growth and spiritual enlightenment.

It expands “Love”, helping you to understand the True meaning of “Unconditional Love”.  It increases and spreads the vibration of “Love” to all life.

It expands “Harmony, raises your vibrations to be in sync or resonance with the Divine and in doing so brings “Peace” and happiness on personal, family and global levels.  It is for you and everyone alive who is desirous of a higher quality of life.  Reiki is pure “Divine Light”

It restores wholeness to body, mind and spirit, increases intuition, and helps you reconnect to your “God-given” gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience.  It is a transcendental counterclockwise spiraling energy, which works with the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels simultaneously.  It is an evolutionary process, which will increase the natural flow of events and patterns of manifestation in all life.  This precise self-help technique encourages personal growth and transformation on all levels.

It is a powerful natural system that unlocks the inner flow of vital energy, restoring and balancing the energy systems in all living things.  This natural healing system is complete and whole in and of itself, yet acts synergistically with all other healing methods.  It is for preventing disorders, maintaining positive wellness, helping the healing process and is beneficial in emergency situations or when used with medical and other procedures.

It can increase your psychic senses, opening your third eye, increase your psychic sensitivity and expand your intuition. It can be used in conjunction with other forms of healing including surgery, medication, homeopathy, physical therapy, psychotherapy, aromatherapy, crystals and all other forms of alternative healing. It enhances all of these as well as any vitamins or supplements you take.

It can be sent distantly to others once you have been attuned to Level II.

It is safe for pregnancy, labor and delivery and also for using on babies.

It can be used to treat animals and plants and to charge crystals.

It can be very helpful for healing our planet, Mother Earth.

It helps in concentration during meditation and even has it’s own meditations.

It is always available and is unlimited; once attuned to the energy, you never lose it and cannot overuse it.  It is safe and easy to use anytime, any place, in any situation and it can never be used to manipulate or control anything.
Because the Reiki energy flows through the practitioner they too receive healing whenever giving Reiki to others.
It heals the underlying causes of dis-ease rather than just the symptoms so that the illness has much less chance of recurring.

It is “intelligent” energy that knows exactly where to go to bring healing and wholeness to all levels of your being – body, emotions, mind and spirit.

The more you use Reiki the more your energy channels expand, being able to hold more energy and light within your body.

What is ReikiIt is not a religion or religious cult.  It has no dogma or specific doctrine of beliefs.  It does not require faith, so is not akin to “laying-on-of-hands”.  It works whether you or the recipient believe in it or not.

It is not channeling (the practitioner is like a funnel), a form of mind control or hypnosis, is not based on imagination, wishful thinking or visualization and is not dependent upon a certain state of mind.  It is not necessary to be in a meditative state to effectively do Reiki.

It does not involve ESP or unusual psychic phenomenon, is not a form of psychic healing or psychic surgery and is not a massage technique.

It is not difficult to use or limited to a select few people.  It is not just for when one is ill or used simply to reduce pain and symptoms.  It restores wholeness to the body, bringing it into sync with the Divine rhythm of the Universe.  Everyone can learn, use and benefit from daily use of Reiki.

It cannot be taught by just anyone, it is necessary to receive extensive training in order to teach the system from a qualified Reiki Master Teacher.

It can never do any harm either to the practitioner or the recipient.  It is always helpful and is “intelligent” in that it goes directly to where it is needed.

It does not matter what your spiritual preferences or intellectual capabilities are.  Age and background are of no significance in using or receiving Reiki.

It does not take years of practice.  Once you are attuned the Reiki energy flows immediately.
