Reiki is a technique of channelizing the cosmic/universal life energy, through Reiki channels- for healing and positive intent manifestation. The technique was prevalent in ancient India in the form of Sparsh Chikitsa (Healing By Hands) and rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan after Buddhist meditations during late nineteenth century.
Reiki can heal both living and the non-living. The Reiki practitioners are “Attuned” by the Masters/Teachers during the process of training thereby enabling them to channelize the universal life energy for healing. Etheric body energy system of Aura and Chakras is extensively used for Physical, emotional or mental healing by Reiki.
Effectiveness of a Reiki healing is also associated with the acceptance by the individual being treated, habits and mental state. Reiki propagates maintenance of highly positive attitude which is certainly required in our society. The subconscious mind also plays a very important role in energy healing. Today Reiki along with other energy healing techniques goes beyond the physical and mental level of healing to heal the Karmic problems faced by individuals which may not be curable by modern medical systems.
Reiki has evolved over the years and Masters have added to the system and developed modified systems of Universal Life Energy channelization. Some of the popular ones being Karuna Reiki ®, Rainbow Reiki® , Reiki with Angels TM, Gendai Reiki, Five-Element-Seichem and Shamballa Reiki.
Reiki does not interfere with contemporary traditional medical systems or treatments. It enhances the effectiveness of these methods.
