What is Reiki?

Many have asked, What is Reiki?  I light up with this question as Reiki is a such a powerful method for healing on many levels. I have personally experienced and witnessed its positive effects. Whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, even a combination of each, Reiki offers the recipient a proven energy tool for healing. When energy flow in living things is blocked, depleted and/or imbalanced, it manifests usually in the energy body, then in the physical body as dis-comfort or dis-ease.  

Reiki pronounced ray-key, is an ancient Japanese concept and form of practice translated as Universal Life Force Energy.

Rei = Spiritual/Universal Wisdom 

Ki = Life Force Energy. Ki means the same at Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit and Ti or Ki in Hawaiian and science calls it bio-field energy. 

  "The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." - Thomas Edison

The practice of Reiki shifts our energy pathways/systems as it releases blockages, replenishes depleted energy, and rebalances these channels when done properly. In essence, our bioelectro-magnetic field and body then hum in harmony and improved health. Reiki may be done with the practitioner's hands guided over the body (Fusion's preferred style), or specific hand placements for self-treatment and treatment of others including animals and plants. Our hands intuitively and voluntarily sense and touch, like antennas and satellites, sending and receiving. The healer is Reiki’s energy, not the Practitioner’s energy. At a minimum, a recipient experiences more calm and sense of peacefulness.

Reiki is the perfect complement to our services of yoga and general mind, body, soulful wellness that we offer, and anyone interested can do it!  I am so excited to once again lead a Reiki Training, Certification and Attunement Ceremony for our upcoming students the next two Fridays. We will explore its origin, history, principles and practice. I include a live demonstration given by me, then all students get to receive and practice giving Reiki. I have been practicing energy work for over 25 years, specifically Reiki for more than 10. 

Much healing is needed in our world for all occupants, our amazing earth and the energy fields that comprise everything! Without energy, there is no life. Our graduates will attest to Reiki's positive ability to create more calm and peace for yourself and others. 

If you would like to schedule a private session with one of Fusion Reiki Master Practitioners or to discover more in my upcoming training, please see our Events section on our website or contact us. We love offering this energy tool and seeing the benefits firsthand!

Staying in the Light to Be the Light,
