REIKI 101: What is Reiki Healing?

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

Even with all the advances in technology and society’s acceptance of holistic remedies for curing disease, energy healing is still misunderstood by so many people.

Many of these same people think that money is their most valuable possession and believe they can’t survive without it. However, the need for “energy” is far more important than the need for money. Here’s why! Without energy, you would literally be unable to get up each morning, develop thoughts, make decisions, feed and care for yourself, your children, your pets, your home or even get to the job that makes you money! Trying to function in your daily life with little or no energy would be challenging. If not, impossible!

Energy can be both positive or negative. Each action, decision, thought and word you choose is based on whether you’re vibrating at a high frequency of energy (positive energy) or a low frequency of energy (negative energy). Positive energy enables healthy, love-focused choices and behaviour. Whereas, negative energy makes us unhealthy and fear-focused. So, if you’re struggling with stress, drama, illness, debt, worry, anxiety, depression or anything else that’s robbing you of your peace, then it’s safe to say that you’re operating in negative energy. If you want to live a stress-free, drama-free life where you feel healthier, happier and more peaceful, then you need to address all the negatives in your life and replace them with more positive, loving experiences.

This is where Reiki healing comes in. Since Reiki is a natural healing modality that channels positive energy, it can help heal whatever physical, mental, emotional or spiritual issue you’re struggling with. The amazing thing about Reiki is it has a spiritual intelligence of its own, meaning it will intuitively send healing energy to the area of your life that’s losing energy and requires healing.

Reiki is not a religion, a cult or a “woo woo” modality - like some misinformed people might think! In fact, it originated in Tibet in the 1800’s and has been around for hundreds of years. Because of its natural simplicity, many people don’t believe reiki works because energy is something they can’t see, hear, smell or touch.

There is nothing magical or mystical about how reiki works. Reiki’s healing power is intuitive and channeled from universal life force energy, or God, through the practitioner’s hands and into the client’s energy field. I often refer to Reiki as a gentle, loving hug from our angels because during each session, almost every client experiences the exact same gentle, loving energy that leaves them feeling calm, peaceful and hopeful.

Simply put, Reiki is unconditional love and peace. Through loving intention and a genuine desire to help their client, a Reiki practitioner channels positive energy to help raise their client’s energy which promotes healing to take place. In turn, the client must also have a genuine desire to want to heal themselves as well. If a client chooses to hold on to their pain, then the likelihood of them healing is very low. You may have heard the quote, “what you resist, persists!” For best possible results, I recommend that you try Reiki with an open mind and heart and be willing to release whatever is keeping you emotionally stuck in fear or pain. This will allow positive energy to flow during your session and enable transformation to take place.

In closing, remember that we are all imperfect humans, so we all have both negative and positive experiences which directly impact and affect our energy. The key is to work towards eliminating as many negative influences in your life as possible, create healthy emotional boundaries to avoid losing energy, and keep loving and respecting yourself. Oh and, make sure you make Reiki a part of your healthy lifestyle choices!
