Practicing Reiki during a class.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning "Spiritually guided life force energy". It is the vital energy that flows through every living thing. Not unlike the "Force" used by the Jedi in Star Wars. Reiki energy can only be channelled by people who have been attuned to it by a Master Teacher.

Reiki was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th Century in Japan and has spread all over the world to bring love, light, joy, peace and laughter to millions.

From a scientific perspective

Our Universe consists wholly of energy,  and at its most simplistic level can be described as energy patterns vibrating at different frequencies. It is the limited way in which we use our sensory filters that causes us to perceive them as separate and solid matter. Reiki energy vibrates at a very high frequency and remains out of the conscious acceptance by the majority of humanity. Connecting with the energy makes real and tangible changes in the quality of people's lives by bringing a faster frequency into a slower one. Whenever you do this it has the effect of speeding up the slower one, increasing the rate at which it vibrates. The implications  of this are important when we consider that disease or disharmony within our energy system can be located in those areas where the energy has become stagnant or denser in frequency. Modern medicine has found a number of ways to introduce high frequency energies into the human body to treat illness, eg, radiotherapy and laser treatment. Reiki energy differs in that it works naturally and in harmony with the individual's system.

The Mind - Body connection

Many of us now understand that physical illness is often the result of storing either beliefs that are no longer serving us and /or locking painful emotional experiences within our system. Our beliefs and focus in life become our reality.

Reiki works holistically, addressing imbalances within the physical, mental and emotional aspects of an individual. Moreover, it works with our unconscious processes, honouring and acknowledging them as hidden or fragmented parts of ourselves. Always working with compassion, without judgement, it assists us in turning and facing all that we are so that ultimately our expression in the world becomes whole. 

As we begin to bring the energy into form through our bodies, it starts to connect us with the unconscious energies that underlie our every action, building a bridge between the conscious and unconscious bringing in balance through equal expression of both. It brings us the means to understand ourselves, to confront issues we are not looking at, and to step outside our limitations. With its infinite intelligence and compassion, we are guided and nurtured through our pain and reunited with our creative expression.
