Reiki


Rei means “universal energy” or “spirit” and ki means “life force energy”.    It is also referred to as energy from the Source or Creator but in general terms, Reiki is a touch modality that produces mind, body, and spirit balance.

Reiki Attunements


Reiki energy is unlimited in supply and flows through the attuned healer as they act as a conduit or channel, like a water hose, for the energy. Additional attunements with subsequent levels of training widen the channel to increase the flow of energy.

Once an individual receives a Reiki attunement, the person is a conduit for Reiki energy for life. This means that the energy will automatically flow though your activated hand chakras when you are near any living organism, including people, animals, or plants, that is in need of healing whether you are awake or asleep.

Reiki energy can flow through objects such as clothing and casts, and it also works from a distance so that one can conduct remote healings. The energy can additionally be used in spaces and rooms to clear away negative energy and instill peace and calm.

The Cause of Illness


The mind, body, and spirit are inextricably linked such that issues experienced in one area will impact the others. The mind is infinitely powerful as emotions, thoughts, reactions, and attitudes directly affect the energetic activity and physical functioning of the body. Thus, illness is not the result of external factors in one’s environment or genetics but rather the result of what is occurring at the level of the mind. Reiki targets the source of illness and healing, the level of the mind, to counteract negative beliefs and emotional patterns and restore well-being.
