I know that’s a shocking statement but let me clarify.
I’m a Reiki Master. What does being a Reiki Master mean? It means a Reiki Master has the ability to teach others how to perform Reiki for their well being. I’ve had clients that I’m a “healer”. I try to tell them that I’m just a channel . However I can’t control what they say, but I can guarantee that no one will ever hear me say that I’m a healer.
One of the things I always tell to students is that they are not healers of any form. To me, a practitioner saying that they area “healer” tells me that they have their ego involved in their practice.
Reiki is a Japanese word, & carries a meaning “Universal Life Force Energy”. The energy is received through the practitioner to the client. This energy travels where it’s needed within the recipient and help release energy that is trapped.
How does Energy help to Heal?
Because Reiki is a stress relaxation technique, it helps relax and calm the receiver which helps the receiver to heal on all levels, body, mind, soul, and spirit. The American Institute of Stress has estimated that over 70% of visits to doctors’ offices are the result of the body’s reaction to stress. Take the stress out and the body can help itself heal.
When the body is relaxing and stress-free then the body’s natural healing abilities start doing their job.
How can the Practitioner do this?
When a Practitioner has completed with Reiki, his/her Master attunes him or her to be able to receive and channel this energy into their prospect.
One really great way to illustrate the entire process is to imagine a tap on the wall or sink. Visualize the tap turning on — that’s the attunement. The spout the water flows through — that’s the practitioner. The water flows through the tap — that’s the energy.
So can Reiki replace medical care?
No, not at all. Reiki is a complementary modality. It works in conjunction & not against traditional medical care. I suggest clients who receive regular Reiki sessions (either by me or by themselves) let their doctor know if they are under medical care.
For example, if someone is on medication for high blood pressure, they may want to monitor their blood pressure — who knows, maybe their doctor may want to adjust their medication dosage.
So, Let’s give credit where credit is due
Being able to channel Reiki is a wonderful gift and one that should be respected. It is something that anyone can learn how to do. Don’t let anyone tell you that you have to be special to do Reiki. That awesome universal life force energy is there for anyone to access and it’s unlimited!
