Reiki, the energy of life
When speaking about the concept of Reiki, we sometimes refer to the Reiki Kanji (the Japanese characters), or to the energy, and sometimes to the way it is taught.
For the energy we call Reiki, it is best to first take a look at the Japanese word Rei Ki. It can be easily translated as Universal Life Energy : the energy of life itself. But this is a rather minimal description of the extraordinary power of Reiki. Although we could talk about it for days, it is something that remains inconceivable and inexplicable for us human beings.
We might occasionally stop and think about having a body, having thoughts and feelings, and maybe even see how wonderful it is that all our organs collaborate and perform their functions. Of course we know, that to keep it going, we need food and drink and oxygen, among other things. What we mostly do not realise is that it also requires a constant flow of energy. This life force, that flows through our body naturally, we call Reiki. And the more it flows freely, the more healthy and happy we are and the more we can live the life that suits us naturally.
How does it work?
As people we are each one of us unique so Reiki will work in a unique way for every person. Therefore rather than reading books about it, it is more important to experience for yourself what it does. However, there are many similar experiences during a Reiki treatment or while people practice it for themselves.
Reiki supports the person as a whole. It is not specifically directed to chakras, organs, an illness or any separate part but to the complete human being. Reiki improves our health, deepens the joy in life, and creates balance when needed. The energy flows naturally to the cause of possible diseases, fears, or mental problems so that healing can start from the roots and help symptoms disappear. It helps you to become more aware of your body`s needs, and promotes personal and spiritual development.
You can experience Reiki by having one or more Reiki treatments and/or start practicing it after participating in a Reiki I class. You can read more about how Reiki works and how it is practiced on the page of the Usui System of Reiki and also on the other pages about Reiki.
Once a month there is an open evening/afternoon for information about Reiki.
