New to energy healing? We’re so glad you have found us! So what is Reiki healing and how it can help you?

“Each of us has the potential of being given a gift by the divine, which results in the body and soul becoming unified … Through it, the human being will first be made healthy, and then peace of mind and joy in life will be increased.” – Dr Mikao Usui

What is Reiki Healing? Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy and the Universal Spirit. It is the energy of life itself – we all possess this life-giving energy, but modern life has disconnected us from this powerful natural healing entity. Reiki reawakens and elevates this energy, channelling it from the universe and into another person or ourselves through self-treatment. Through the hands and through the use of energising symbols, Reiki can be channelled to help provide relaxation, stress-relief and naturally boost the positive effects of modern medicine.

Reiki has been used to help a myriad of problems, treating everything, from minor ailments and accidents to chronic disease and cancers. Reiki endeavours to balance the being as a whole – working to harmonise the energies of mind, body, emotions and physical issues.  The amount of energy drawn from the universe and channelled to the receipt is determined by the needs of the person receiving it. As you are working with Universal energy from a high source, your own Reiki stores are not used during a Reiki session. Reiki is drawn, not sent!

Reiki has been around for centuries but was rediscover by Dr Mikao Usui in the 1900s. Through travel, study, research and meditation, he evolved a healing system based on ancient Buddhist teachings written in Sanskrit. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching this method of natural healing, which involved the development of an initiation ceremony to Reiki known as an attunement, and a set of Five Reiki Principles for Reiki Masters and Teachers to live by.

There are three stages of learning with Reiki

Level 1

Reiki First Degree helps to heal the body and clears out any imbalances. Through hands on, we are able to remove any blockages.

Level 2

Reiki Second Degree is much more advanced. It helps heal your body, mind and your soul on all levels. With Reiki Second Degree you can heal past and present situations in your life. You are able to set up positive outcomes to events in your life.

Level 3

Reiki Third Degree is the Master’s level, here you are committed to teach Reiki to others.

As well as going through the training, if you desire to use Reiki to heal yourself and others you must first receive the necessary attunements from a Reiki Master. The attunements will align and tune-in the energy centres of the student to Reiki.

Whilst a lot of people study Reiki to help other people and work on their own energy, many Reiki Practitioners also learn about Animal Reiki. Animal Reiki involves using Reiki energy to treat the pets and animals in our lives.

Anyone can learn Reiki! It a a powerful way to improve health and wellbeing and learn more about ourselves. If you want to learn more about Reiki healing and train as a  Reiki or Animal Reiki Master – visit our courses page for more information!
