Reiki is a energy healing and spiritual system that was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui. The origins for the re-emergence of Reiki lie in the curiosity of one man determined to understand how the ancient healers of the various religions could physically heal their devoted followers
As great academic, Usui wanted to understand exactly what had enabled these healers, so he set out on a path to discover it. After searching across countries, with different spiritual philosophers & teachers he made a pilgrimage to Mt Kurama and found the way revealed to him on his 21st day of meditation as he was gifted access to the universal life force, otherwise known as Chi, Ki, the holy spirit, and other various nomenclatures.
It was revealed to him that the ancient healers he had read and studied were really vessels for channeling this life force energy from the divine. They were gifted or bestowed upon access to the energy, spirit, chi, that makes up every living thing.
These abilities have to be given to another by someone who has access, mastery of the gift, and the rituals to unlock the potential of their students receptivity. These Reiki Masters teach the ancient form of energy healing in the ways of their ancestors, passing down their wisdom the directly from master to student and unlocking their openness to the divine light through attunement rituals.
Reiki works with the universal life force energy that exists all around of us. It is channeled through a Reiki practitioner’s hands and directed into the body to create balance through the body’s energy channels (meridians) and energy centers (chakras).
Like all physical matter, our bodies are made up of energy. The extent to how freely and fluidly our body energy flows is based on the purity level of our body and mind. If our body accumulates toxins and our mind is full with negative thoughts and stress, the energy flow will be disrupted and disturbed which will ultimately lead to mental and emotional imbalance and physical diseases. Reiki treatment helps to reduce stress level and purify our body creating balance, harmony and free flow of the energy.
