REIKI – Universal Life Energy

REIKI Alternative MedicineUniversal life energy flows through all living things. We interact with everybody by “chain” of energies and in the energy field lies the reason for our health or disease, success or failure.

The knowledge that energy connected directly to the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times and the existence of this “life force energy” has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.

Energy medicine – very important part of alternative medicine. It is based on the idea that since the body is a manifestation of human energy, dis-harmony in the energy field will cause dis-ease in the body. If the human energy field is out of balance, the body will be out of balance. One system of energy medicine which is rapidly gaining popularity all around the world is called Reiki.

History of REIKI
Reiki is believed to have begun in Tibet several thousand years ago and came to the East, to the China and Japan. Use of REIKI healing was limited to the few in the upper class and strictly guarded from others. This ancient knowledge was almost lost and then rediscovered in Japan in the end of XIX century by Dr. Mikao Usui. From there during the period of World War II it spread to all of Europe.

The word REIKI comes from the 2 Japanese words: REI which means “Universal Life” and KI which means “Energy”, so REIKI usually translates as Universal Life Energy.

REIKI classes
First of all – REIKI does not have anything to do with magic. This healing is completely natural. As human body has ability to breathe oxygen – it also has ability to absorb energy. Energy channels are part of our body as well as muscles. But these channels are usually closed and unable to transfer healing energy. The ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master. Its use is not dependent on ones intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore, is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

But how successful you will be is up to you. If you are serious about your desire to help yourself and others and ready to dedicate patience and practice – your abilities which were sleeping before are going to thrive and you can truly discover new, healthy, and more joyful life.
