Why Reiki Healing Works & How It Can Help Ease Your Everyday Stress

The word “Reiki” originated from the Japanese language. The word “Rei” means “God’s wisdom” or “The Greater Power”, while “Ki” means “Life Force Energy”.

Reiki healing is an energy-based process that initially originated in Japan and is based on the idea that everyone has a unique life force energy that he/she can use to keep away negative feelings and forces. The method use to activate Reiki is personal and according to reference. Some practitioners draw Reiki symbols and then bring in the universal energy. When I give Reiki to client I first ask for blessings and guidance with divine beings. I cleanse the room and spaces around me and my client of all the negative energy. Then, I stay really focus and my mind tune out of everything else except for the guidance of my spiritual guides and angles. Then, I ask them to stay present and guide me as I provide the Reiki session. A person often needs the help of a Reiki master to activate and bring in the universal energy if they’re new to Reiki. A Reiki master can also help guide anyone to use Reiki for the ultimate spiritual guidance. In Reiki treatment, the Reiki practitioner promotes a healthy flow of energy. An experience Reiki master can feel the client’s energy and know where the stagnant energy that causes pain. A great benefit of giving Reiki is that Reiki master also receives Reiki. In this way, Reiki is a win-win as both receive the benefit.

Reiki treatment also serves as a form of complementary medicine; it can assist in the control and management of various mental diseases including depression, anxiety, and stress. Receiving Reiki is very relaxing and giving Reiki help heightened and awakens perceptions so that doing so I noticed serendipity in the moments.

According to a review published in December 2014 in the journal Pain Management Nursing, it was clearly explained that the Reiki practitioner is never a source of energy nor is he/she responsible for the creation and origination of energy. Instead, he/she plays his/her role by serving as a channel for energy. It is just like a gas pipe that serves as a source of gas and only directs required energy to the right destination.
