Reiki Healing: What is Energy Healing?
What is Reiki healing, and why do I need it? Energy healing is a form of therapy in which powerful Divine energy brings about healing and alleviates different afflictions of the mind, body, and spirit. Reiki energy healing is a holistic approach to healing that involves channeling healing energy through a practitioner’s hands into the recipient’s body. Reiki healing is based on the idea that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and that by activating this natural healing process, physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances can be restored.

The word “Reiki” is a combination of two Japanese words: “rei,” which means universal, and “ki,” which means life energy or vital force. Reiki can be translated as “universal life energy.” Reiki healing is based on the idea that everything is energy and that when this energy is blocked or stagnant, it can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances. Within Reiki healing, we are working with the energy of God/Creator/Source to access higher levels of healing. It is like focused prayer and is often done by laying hands lightly on the person. A Reiki healing session is typically one hour long, and much of that time is spent focused on bringing about healing. Many Reiki specialists also pray before and during a Reiki healing session, asking for God’s help to accomplish the request. A Reiki practitioner uses Reiki healing to consciously direct universal life energy that affects the electromagnetic fields surrounding the person to bring about balance and stimulate their body’s own natural healing ability.
Whole Life Center energy healing classes guide students to reach a deeper understanding of the Divine, embody spirituality, and give Reiki healing to others. They will learn how to remove blocked energy pathways and transmit energy to help restore health in people and in animals. When we realize that everything around us contains energy, including our thoughts, it helps us to understand that we can influence how to use Source energy for healing. For instance, giving energy to our thoughts can manifest as a habit, behavior, or action. Dwelling on negative thoughts will often manifest as a physical illness. Conversely, positive thoughts encourage the natural flow of positive energy and can result in better health and spiritual balance. This is the core focus of whole-person healing.
Reiki healing is important because it addresses imbalances in the body’s energy system, which can contribute to various bodily issues. Our bodies are made up of energy that flows through channels known as meridians or chakras. When this energy flow is disrupted or blocked, it can cause imbalances that can manifest as physical, emotional, or spiritual symptoms.
