Energy is defined as “the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.” It stems from the Greek word energeia, en- ‘in, within’ and ergon ‘work’. In fact, it is the work that happens within us to stay alive. All energy moves in a circular form, it cycles, flows and expands. Energy is also information. For instance, everywhere we go and everything we do contains information. We receive information in a number of ways including light, sound, thought, and/or felt sense.
Truly, energy flows within all of us. Stress, professional tensions, relationship problems, careless nutrition, pollution, and other negative situations can have an impact on our energy. An ancient Japanese technique, Reiki works to cleanse, restore, and balance your energy system.
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Everyone’s experience is different! Therefore, your experience with Reiki is unique to you. To begin the session, the recipient lies on a massage table, in comfortable clothing and relaxes. It can be hands-on or off practice and setting an intention for the session can also enhance the flow of energy. More importantly, many people experience emotional release, calmness, deep relaxation, a meditative or altered state of consciousness, and/or spiritual experiences.
Above all, it’s important to release attachment to a particular outcome when receiving Reiki. The energy knows where to go for the highest good of the recipient. Essentially, Reiki is another way to receive the unconditional Love, Light, and Energy that we already are.
