Something that I believe is that we are drawn to what we need when we need it. So I have come to terms with the fact that some people may not be able to fully grasp what I am about to say, and for others it could be a miraculous revelation.
Reiki is universal energy.
Reiki is a universal energy that can be channeled through a practitioner's hands to help facilitate healing. It used as a hands on approach to balancing energy and heal the entire being on a physical, spiritual and mental level.
It can be used to soothe and relax a person, to heal a physical ailment or to facilitate spiritual growth in the most gentle and comforting way; this happens by the practitioner channeling the energy into your energetic field; this can be hands on or at a distance. The practitioner then works the energy where it needs to go in order to release blockages that can cause physical, emotional or mental and more subtly spiritual imbalances. The beautiful thing about Reiki is that it is non invasive, all a receiver is required to do is relax; generally on a massage table, but the physical contact is very little and both the giver and the Reiki energy itself know the flow of energy that is needed to help the receiver to their highest good. This means the experience will always be a positive one that will only delve into blockages that you are ready to release. It works with you to help you to become the most 'whole' being that you are able to be.
