Reiki is an energy healing technique that has been in practice since the late 1800’s and continues to attract people all over the word with its perceived benefits. It is commonly referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing because it involves energy transfer.

Reiki has its origin in Japan and the word Reiki is the combination of two words Rei meaning universal and Ki meaning life energy. Reiki believes in a relationship between the universal power and every single living being.

Reiki symbols act as a teaching tool for the practitioners of Reiki. Five Reiki symbols are considered to be the most sacred and each symbol is referred by its Japanese name or by its intention. The name gives significance to its purpose in the practice of Reiki.

Cho ku rei is the power symbol and it means placing all the powers of the universe here. This symbol act as a catalyst and the practitioner uses the symbol to channelize their power during the practice of Reiki.

Sei Hei ki symbolizes harmony and is primarily used for emotional and mental healing. Most of the ailments are caused by mental and emotional imbalance and Sei Hei ki helps the patient release their mental and emotional problems.

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen is a distance symbol and is used to send energies over greater distances. It means there is “no past, no present, and no future”.

Dai ko myo is master symbol with the intention of enlightenment and combines the energies of the power, harmony, and distance symbols. It is an extremely powerful symbol. It means “Great enlightenment” or “Bright shining light”.

The Process:

In Reiki, it is believed life energy flows through everything and everyone. This life energy can be transferred through our bodies for healing and rejuvenation. A Reiki practitioner uses his/her hands to transfer the positive energy.

Reiki session should be held in a peaceful setting. The patient should either sit on a chair or lie down on the floor. The practitioner then places his hands on or over different parts of body for the transfer of energy to take place.

Practitioner feels either tingling or warm sensation in his hands, signaling the blockage in the particular body area of the patient. Practitioner keeps the hand over the area for 2-3 minutes for the negativity to dissipate. Once the hands begin to return to normalcy, practitioner removes their hand.

Techniques like centering, clearing, beaming, infusing, and smoothing and raking the aura are used during the process of Reiki. A session can last between 15 to 90 minutes.

Health benefits of Reiki:

Health benefits of Reiki are derived from channeling the energy called ‘Chi’ which is also called ‘prana’. If channeled properly as it acts differently in each one of us, the life energy can aid in relaxation of body, assist the body in natural healing process and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being in us

With consistent practice Reiki helps in improving one’s breathing, strengthen immune system, and improves our balance & motor skills. More importantly, it brings peace and clarity of mind.

Reiki has all-round benefits for your well-being. Scientific research has found out little quantifiable results that link Reiki to mitigating the risk of onset of life threatening ailments; however its positive effects are worth experiencing.
