What is Reiki?

If you have spent any amount of time researching ways to become more balanced and in tune with physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy on google, then you most likely came across Reiki classes or personal healings. 

To help you better understand the basics of this safe, holistic, and natural healing practice, we put together an ultimate guide for Reiki Energy Healings. This blog will cover the origins of Reiki, how it can benefit you (or others), and even some specific things our clients/students experience during a session.

The Reiki Origin Story

Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation and reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki is rooted in Japanese, with rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, referring to the life force energy (source energy) that flows through all living things. 

Since its creation by Mike Usui in the early 1990s, this practice has been taught and passed down to other Reiki Masters worldwide, such as Ascension Healing Arts Center’s very Own Donna Lakes. Typically a Reiki Master either practices this type of healing on people who require it or teaches it as a class to people who would like to be a certified healer and help others.

The Different Forms Of Reiki

The Usui Healing System is Reiki’s most widely taught and practiced form. This form of Reiki focuses on Healing Practice, Personal Development, Spiritual Discipline, and Mystic Order. You can also find other Reiki healing systems such as Kundalini, Seichim, Butterfly Reiki, and Blue Lotus Healing Technique, depending on what part of the world you reside in.

What Conditions Does Reiki Treat?

Reiki is known for being a successful healing treatment for the entire self; and is used to help stimulate physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Reiki can be beneficial for people with:

  • Stress-related illnesses
  • Chronic pain
  • Psychological distress such as depression and anxiety
  • Cancer
  • Infertility
  • Digestive problems
  • Anyone preparing for surgery

How Does Reiki Work?

Your Reiki Healing Master acts as a “jumper cable” between yourself and the universal life force energy source. They provide a direct way for energy to flow from the universe, through their hands, and into your body.

The more open a person is to the energy being provided, the deeper and more beneficial the results of the Reiki treatment become. Results vary from person to person; the only things needed are intention from the practitioner and the client surrendering to the process so that they receive maximum benefits.

Suppose you wish to work with Reiki Energy (becoming a person providing Reiki healings); you will need an attunement from a Reiki Master. The attunement ceremony opens up your psyche and creates conduction of energy out of your body, offers self-protection, and helps to clear out energy blocks in your system.

The Reiki Healing System uses special symbols that help to facilitate the practitioners’ intention for healing. The symbols create more powerful sessions, which allow the recipient receive the desired results.

Reiki utilizes the energy centers known as chakras. Chakras are the body’s primary energy centers, and each chakra has corresponding organs, emotions, and aspects of one’s personality. There are said to be 12 or more chakras, although seven main chakras are the most widely used in most energy healing systems. The seven Main Chakras include:

  1. Root Chakra: governs our safety, security, and sense of groundedness.
  2. Sacral Chakra: responsible for creativity, pleasure, passion, sexuality, and emotions.
  3. Solar Plexus Chakra: the center of our personal power, strength, courage, and resilience.
  4. Heart Chakra: governs our ability to love and be loved, feel compassion, empathy, gratitude, joy, and forgiveness.
  5. Throat Chakra: responsible for communication and self-expression.
  6. Third Eye Chakra: the center of our intuition, vision, and imagination.
  7. Crown Chakra: governs spiritual connection and enlightenment.

In conclusion, Reiki is an effective natural energy healing system that can assist anyone with their wellness journey. The best way to learn Reiki is from an experienced Reiki/Master/Teacher from a reputable establishment such as Donna Lakes from Ascension Healing Arts Center. Learning and utilizing the power of Reiki takes time, practice, and patience!
