Perhaps you have heard the word associated with energy, massage, bodywork or yoga. Maybe once you heard it, you were curious to know more...to know exactly what it is all about. Or perhaps you've never heard of it at all.
"Reiki is a Japanese technique for reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It was discovered by Mikao Usui in March of 1922. Reiki is administered by laying on hands, and techniques such as this have been practiced for thousands of years."
At its simplest, the word Reiki, broken down means Spiritual Wisdom and Life Energy. Rei is sometimes referred to as Spiritual Consciousness, the Universal Mind, God, The Supreme Being, the Third Heaven and so forth. Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese, or Prana in Sanskrit, also Ti or Ki in Hawaiian -- and science calls it biofield energy. It is the non-physical energy that animates all living things.
At Intuitive Indigo, we see Reiki as a process of channeling, clearing and moving energy with the intention of bringing relaxation, healing and wellness to the body. Combined with the messages received from spirit, our Reiki services also assist in the relaxation of the mind and emotions by locating energetic ties or cords to things that no longer serve and removing them. This unbinding of negative energy returns a sense of freedom and ease, allowing for forward momentum in areas that may have previously felt bogged down, sluggish, or completely stuck.
Reiki is great for releasing old relationships, healing old emotional wounds, balancing personal energy, and restoring a feeling of health and wellness because it is an act of service centered around compassionate loving kindness.
