Reiki Healing: What is It?
Reiki healing; the soul of the Japanese energy-healing practice. Reiki healing can be achieved through touch – by laying-on-of-hands or through distance as in prayer. Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. The belief in spiritual healing has been in practice for thousands of years in various cultures and religions. Reiki healing is what Karen Harrison at Whole Life Center in Kansas City wants to bring to you!
We are working with the energy of God/Creator/Source to access higher levels of healing. It is much like focused prayer and is often done by laying hands lightly on the person. A typical Reiki session is one hour long and we are spending that time in focused intention to bring about physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. Many Reiki practitioners also pray before and during a Reiki healing session, asking for God’s help to accomplish the requested healing. The practice of laying on of hands has been used throughout history as a pathway to healing. There are many Christian texts that report miracles, and the best-known ones were about laying on of hands.
In a session of Reiki healing, Reiki practitioners use a series of hand positions on a fully clothed person laying on a massage table. The hand positions include working on the head, neck, shoulders, abdomen, pelvic bowl, knees, back, and feet. Hand positions can be done on the body or over the body. Reiki practitioners are careful not to touch any private areas and work over the body in these areas. Reiki practitioners are also trained to send Reiki at a distance to a person, which makes Reiki like prayer in that you do not need to have a person physically present in order to pray for him or her.
A Reiki practitioner can send healing energy not only at a distance but back in time to heal an issue or forward in time to help manifest good results. For example, we often send Reiki in advance of a surgery intending the surgery be a success. 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.
When we realize that everything around us contains energy, including our thoughts, it helps us understand that we can influence how to use energy for healing. Reiki healing works by releasing blockages in the aura, and around as well as inside the organs that disrupt the flow of chi or energy. After blockages are released, the Reiki practitioner fills in the area with the higher vibrational energy of Reiki. The results received vary by session and individual. Reiki practitioners can never promise any specific results, but the more that the receiver intends to be open to the energy, the more energy will flow. Most people feel deeply relaxed and sleep better after a Reiki healing session and might also feel more peaceful and happier.
