Remembering that Rei is universal and ki is life force this healing modality allows and opens a pathway for people which brings clarity and focus to any given situation. It’s very gentle yet powerful in that it lowers the brain waves to between 8-10 hertz which as the receiver, puts you in that beautiful state of being where relaxation is weightless. This is where healing can happen in the body. Emotional, spiritual, physical or mental levels of being are realigned naturally by your body’s ability to heal at a cellular (DNA) level.
The life energy ki flows through us in a physical body through pathways called chakras and meridians, as well as around us in an energy fields called the aura. The free balanced flow of ki is the cause of health, and Ki sustains the physical organs and tissues as it flows through them. Ki nourishes the organ cells of the body in their vital functioning. When ki is disrupted, illnesses results.
Ki is responsive to feelings and thoughts. When we have positive thoughts, the flow of ki increases and causes us to feel better. However, negative thoughts results in the distraction in our ki and we do not feel as good when negative thoughts become entrenched in our subconscious mind, they may create a permanent or prolonged blockage in our ki. This can affect the organs and tissues of the body. image is the final functioning of those organs and cells. Unless the blockages is released, illness can result.
In giving a Reiki treatment, the higher consciousness part of the energy evaluates where the blocks exist and then direct the healing energy, often to the blocks nearest the hands. Sometimes it will go to the block that is most important even if it is far from the hands. Reiki energy works on healing the negative thoughts and emotions that block the natural flow of Ki.
By flowing through the blocked parts of the energy field in charging them with the positive energy Reiki raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings reside. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. Reiki clears and straightens the energy pathways, allowing healthy Ki to flow in a natural way. Once Ki is flowing well, naturally organs and tissues are then able to complete the healing process.
I hope this helps you understand this beautiful energy a little better!
