Reiki – The Universal Life Force


The method Reiki is a natural system of harmonization and energy recovery, which is practiced in order to maintain or restore health. It is a method of stress reduction. A system of natural healing that helps us to work on ourselves and others through the Universal Life Energy, promoting health and harmonization at all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

This energy comes from the Universe, God, or Tao, and does not distinguish personal beliefs or race as it comes from a single source of divine energy.

Reiki is a Japanese word, Rei means universal, and refers to the spiritual aspect, the Energy Cosmic Essence, which permeates all things and surrounds all that exists. Ki is the individual vital energy flowing in all living organisms and service. When the Ki energy leaves the body, it ceases to have life. The Reiki energy is a process of meeting of these two energies, Universal Energy and our physical energy. This happens after the attunement or initiation by a qualified teacher.

The System-Traditional Reiki Dr. Usui-technique is incorporated since 1995 the context of alternative / complementary therapeutic practices recognized by the WHO, World Health Organization.


How Reiki Works

You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body. ~C.S. Lewis



The human body is made up of over 50 trillion cells. Each cell contains omniscient wisdom and is connected to the universe and every living thing within it. A good analogy is to think of the universe as a huge ocean of water. Every living thing within that ocean is like a tiny droplet. Together these droplets make up and are part of Reiki the universal life force. Reiki is part of our genetic structure. An in built intelligence that energises the mind body and spirit. Reiki stimulates growth, health, life and healing. When it is freely allowed to flow around the body it can keep us alive and healthy for over one hundred and twenty years.

Unfortunately, bad habits and poor choices result in the flow of Reiki being stifled.. It is important to note that Reiki cannot be destroyed. Even when we die and the life force leaves our body it continues to exist as part of the universe. Through neglect and ignorance we abuse this vital component of life.

When the mind body and spirit are in harmony the biological intelligence that governs the body’s resources and allows it to heal itself and function correctly are intensified. Reiki is the key that unlocks the body’s optimum capabilities. There are seven main energy centres in the body that control the flow of the universal life force. They are called the Chakra’s. Each chakra is responsible for supplying energy to specific parts of the body. When they are blocked or clogged the body becomes sick and the flow of energy is diluted. A full Reiki treatment reopens the chakra’s and re-balances the flow of the universal life force around the body. A person will normally need four full treatments on four consecutive days to boost the flow of Reiki energy. This will stimulate the body’s immune system and natural healing abilities. Normally the body will begin by cleansing itself of toxins. As the poisons are removed, the body becomes re-balanced and the healing process can begin.

Many cultures have developed techniques and disciplines that stimulate the flow of KI energy around the body. However, Reiki is the easiest to learn and administer. The techniques are simple to master. The results are profound.

Reiki is ever-present in our bodies. This means anyone can harness this profound inbuilt intelligent energy for healing.However, without being attuned to the universal life force you will only be using about 10-20% of its capacity for healing.

Madam Takata explained it best when she described Reiki as being similar to radio waves.We cannot see them but we know they are everywhere around us. When we turn on a radio and tune into the radio waves we can pick up a signal. That signal is turned into a radio programme. Similarly the universal life force is everywhere, although we cannot see it unless we use Kirlian photography.

When we are tuned into the energy by a Reiki Master we are able to harness Reiki to heal ourselves and others. This gift of healing remains with us for the rest of our lives. We can only lose it if we use it for negative or destructive purposes. Reiki is pure and it needs to be treated as such.

Reiki is channelled through the hands. When you place your hands on your own body, or the body of another person for the purpose of healing you connect with the universal life force.

The wisdom of Reiki then goes to work to bring about healing, balance and whatever is needed on a holistic level.


Understand Reiki in Simple Way

“To express our understanding of how Reiki works let us use an analogy. Picture this, you have a glass of dirty water and a magical bottle that is full of pure water. The bottle is magical because no matter how much water you pour out of it, it always remains full. In this analogy, you are the dirty glass of water and the Reiki energy is the pure water in the magical bottle. By using Reiki you are slowly pouring the pure water into yourself (the dirty glass of water) and as you continue to do this, you become more and more clear as the dirt inside the glass of water is carried out and over the top of the glass;eventually leaving the water in the glass as pure as the water in the bottle. When this is accomplished, we have perfect health.

We all have “dirt” in ourselves, be it bad habits, illnesses, addictions,impatience, laziness, etc. Reiki helps clear this dirt out of us and leaves us feeling truely remarkable. Anyone who has received a Reiki treatment will probably attest to this statement. The uses of and benefits from using Reiki are limitless.”
