Reiki means “universal energy.” The Reiki practitioner is a conduit of that energy, with the ultimate goal of helping the client to self heal. In physics we are taught that everything is energy, everything has a vibration. When you have a block in your energy body you develop “dis-ease.” The longer the blockage lasts, the more serious the “dis-ease” can become.
I was taught Usui Reiki from a master twice removed from Mrs. Takata, but to me that point is trivial. I prefer to say that I’m a Reiki practitioner with excellent training.
I believe that the best way to describe Reiki and its benefits is with a simple analogy. Picture yourself as an automobile. To ensure your car performs at its best you change the oil, rotate the tires, and do other “preventative maintenance.” Your body is the same. To ensure your body performs at its best you try to eat right, exercise, reduce stress, and get plenty of rest. Reiki is also something you can do holisticly to avoid breaking down.
What if I told you that not only are you the car, you are the driver, the road, and the obstacles. You have the job of maneuvering your car. The choice of which roads to take and the way you handle the turns and obstacles in your path. The decisions you make and the way you deal with the obstacles ultimately can cause the blockages. Be it physically, emotionally, or on a spiritual level. Reiki can help you heal on all those levels.
I am a firm believer that most things are fixable, treatable, even reversible. Best of all, I believe all these can happen without a prescription. I believe that you don’t always need a doctor, maybe you just need a good mechanic and a little preventative maintenance.
