Reiki is a Japanese technique that promotes healing through stress reduction and relaxation. It is delivered by laying hands on a person’s body and it uses the energy that exists in everything around us, that flows through every living creature, that which makes us alive! If your energy is low, then this makes you more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
If you have a chronic problem/issue that has not responded to conventional treatments, it is completely possible that reiki can make a major difference in your life.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Reiki can mean as much or as little to you as you want it to. You can receive a treatment, and enjoy the stress-relieving benefits it has to offer, or you can learn to practice Reiki yourself, and make it a part of your daily life. When you choose to embrace the spiritual practice, which is the way it was originally intended to be used, you strive to adhere to the Five Precepts that the practice subscribes to…
Just for today…

Imagine what our world would be like if everybody woke in the morning, and aspired to live by these concepts!!! It would be a different place, that is for sure. Change happens one person at a time... :)
