What is Reiki?

Reiki in its most commonly practiced form is a natural healing system designed to assist in healing and help achieve balance in body, mind and spirit. Reiki is administered by a practitioner, who serves as an instrument through whom the Universal Life Energy can be transmitted to the recipient, by either hands-on or distance healing techniques. Reiki practitioners also practice Reiki self-treatments as a regular discipline. Reiki is balance. It works on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Reiki energizes and heals the body. 

 Research studies have shown that it speeds wound healing time, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, and is effective as part of a regime to manage pain. Anecdotal reports reveal that Reiki has cured serious illnesses. Reiki compliments other health care and medical treatments. Reiki speeds the healing process and can minimize the side effects of conventional medical treatments.

Reiki is not a religion.  Neither is it a new age practice.  It has been used by practitioners of Christianity, Buddhism, Shintoism, Hinduism, and Islam, and it is a spiritual practice that compliments any faith as a hands on healing practice.


How does Reiki energy flow?

Simple answer - No one knows! All else is speculative and personal opinion.

Basically Reiki flows through our palms at different rates of speed, depending on various factors such as the extent of the recipientís illness, degree of blockage, his or her readiness to accept change, and so on.


Is Reiki a form of faith healing?

No, Reiki is not a religion, nor is it based on the acceptance of any religious doctrine. Having a belief system is not a requirement for Reiki to work. Reiki does not infringe on anyoneís right to believe what he or she wishes. However, Reikiís principles are spiritual in nature and do encourage spiritual empowerment and growth.


Who can benefit from a Reiki treatment?

Everyone can benefit from Reiki. Reikiís gift of increased energy and vitality can be extended to all, it doesnít matter what a personís gender, race, intelligence, or financial status is. Reiki is not a healing energy reserved only for the elite, wealthy, educated, or spiritually evolved.


What does Reiki feel like?

Common Reiki sensations are heat or coolness, ďpins and needlesĒ tingling, vibrational buzzing, electrical sparks, numbness, throbbing, itchiness, and drowsiness but may be none or all of the above.


What is a Reiki attunement?

The reiki system is one that awakens this energy from teacher to student with an initiation.  This initiation is often referred to as an empowerment or an attunement.  An attunement is a ritual action performed by the reiki teacher to awaken in the student this energy. The ritual involves energetic placement of Reiki symbols through a specific set of sequenced actions into the studentís crown and palms.


Will Reiki ever run out?

When you are giving a Reiki treatment to someone, you are giving of your time and your intent to assist, but you are not giving away any of your own energy. Reiki is in infinite supply. It never runs out.


What is the purpose of the Reiki hand placements?

A reiki treatment involves sharing reiki using the hands.  The hand positions are sets that some of the early masters of reiki found worked well in treating the majority of the meridian, chakra and important areas of the body.  Typical emphasis is placed on devoting about five minutes, more or less, on each hand placement so that no part of the body is neglected and to ensure that each body part is given equal consideration.


Do I need to direct the flow of Reiki?

Reiki will automatically go to wherever it needs to go with no mental involvement of either the practitioner or the recipient. However, when mental intention is used, a linear pathway is opened. This cleared route allows Reiki to flow more effectively to that part of the body where attention is most desired.


What purpose do Reiki symbols serve?

Independently, each Reiki symbol has its own unique purposes. The combined function of these symbols is to provide Reiki practitioners with focal points for their healing intentions. Many practitioners use the symbols but some do not. 


How do we know that healing is appropriate for Christians?

In I Corinthians 14:1 Paul tell us to eagerly desire spiritual gifts. In I Corinthians 12: 28 Paul says that healing is one of the gifts. Paul also says that each of the gifts is best expressed with love. Jesus stated in John 14:12 something like, "the truth is, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father." We know that Jesus practiced laying on hands type healing, therefore, it is scriptural for Christian to practice healing by laying on hands and that's how Reiki is practiced.


What is the best way for a Christian to practice Reiki?

Reiki provides a very wonderful way for Christians to make use of God's love and power. When giving or receiving Reiki attunements or treatments, call on God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to work directly through you and do the healing for you. This can be done through prayer before Reiki sessions, attunements or classes etc. In this way your connection with God's love can become very powerful and act as a source of guidance, healing and love that will always be available to you.
