Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. It is a non-invasive technique of “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy,” also known as “qi,” flows through us. If one’s qi is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. A treatment feels like a warm heat radiating around and within you.
Through Reiki, we treat the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.
Just lay back, relax, and let go.
Dr. Usui, founder of Reiki healing techniques, placed a great emphasis on the human ability to heal oneself. Through teaching Reiki to countless practitioners, he found that when the following guidelines are adopted by the healer, they are better able to promote healing and awareness on many levels for the patient.
The five principles of Reiki are:
JUST FOR TODAY DO NOT ANGER
Anger is an emotion that is experienced because of the past; it can often be suppressed and carried through life. This principle does not say do not anger tomorrow, but rather just for today – choose to let your anger go, live in the present and not in the past.
JUST FOR TODAY DO NOT WORRY
Worry is related to perceptions of the future – what if it will / will not happen. What purpose does this serve? Why worry about that which has not and probably won’t happen, live in the present and do not worry for the future.
HONOR YOUR PARENTS, TEACHERS, ELDERS AND YOURSELF
Our parents, siblings and present life is decided by our past life karma, which means that we have decided our present life. If we do honor our choice, then it is the self that is being denied. Live in the present and appreciate your life. Be grateful for what has been given to you by the almighty.
EARN YOUR LIVING HONESTLY
Again we have chosen our path in advance according to the lessons required by the soul, this includes our work. To honor brings satisfaction, value and respect of what one does today, not yesterday, not tomorrow, but today.
SHOW GRATITUDE TO EVERY LIVING THING
We are all part of a whole, not more, not less, but a part of the ultimate. At a soul level we are all linked, we are all one. Any cruelty, be it towards another human, an animal, a plant or even a thought form, is showing cruelty to oneself and to all else that exists.
