Reiki comes from two Japanese words, Rei meaning God’s wisdom or higher power, and Qi meaning life force energy. The Japanese stress reduction in healing therapy literally translates to spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki is based on the idea that health comes from the Qi flowing through and around a person rather than the condition of the physical body. Qi is the reason why the physical organs function in a healthy way and when the flow of Qi is blocked or disrupted it adversely affects the body causing the illness.
Qi responds to a person’s thoughts and feelings, so positive thoughts help the Qi flow more freely through the body to contribute to improved health, negative thoughts contribute to a poor flow of Qi to contribute to decreased health and vitality.
Even Western medicine is starting to recognize the mind-body connection and the ability to improve or worsen health conditions.
To understand how the mind-body connection works you must understand that all the organs are connected to the nervous system via the nerves the transmit messages to and from the brain, therefore our mind is more than the brain itself.
Reiki is a natural and safe way to heal the body it’s spiritual healing practices can be used via a practitioner but self healing techniques are also available for those who cannot find a practitioner in their area anyone can learn Reiki for self healing purposes including children and the elderly as age and health state don’t affect the ability to practice.
No credentials or special background are required to get the necessary training all it takes is about 10 hours of in-person training from a Reiki practitioner typically these classes are taught in groups and a nominal fee is charged to cover the class. You will only be able to learn from a qualified Reiki Master.
Religion has spiritual components and though Reiki is spiritual, there is no religion, and you are not required to believe in anything specific to learn Reiki or to have it work for you. The spiritual part of Reiki suggests everyone should live and act in ways that promote harmony with one another, a nearly culturally universal belief.
