What is Reiki and How Does it Heal?

by Laurelle Shanti Gaia

Reiki (ray-key) is a multi-faceted energy that can be used to help us with meditation practices, spiritual growth, healing relationships, manifestation of goals, and activating the healing power within all living beings. Reiki is a tool to help us develop “wellness consciousness” and also to understand, on an experiential level, what it truly means to be “One with all Creation”.

Reiki is usually considered to be a “hands-on healing technique”. This is one application, but it is so much more. Mikao Usui discovered this healing art in Japan in the late 1800s. The Japanese Kanji characters that represent the word Reiki can be translated to mean; Rei = Universe or Spirit-Guided and Ki = Life Force Energy.

As we know, everything in our Universe is energy. There are many forms of healing energy and Reiki is one of many healing rays. This energy is infinitely wise and knows precisely what we need to relax, release stress, and activate the healing power within.

All forms of healing whether traditional, complementary or alternative have an impact on the human subtle energy system. Each method also carries a unique vibrational frequency and consequently will create different effects. A beautiful characteristic of Reiki is that it has the ability to harmonize energies that may normally be incompatible and can create the best possible outcome. Therefore Reiki enhances anything we do.

Many people are practicing techniques to improve their health such as meditation, exercise and improved diet. As this is done, a deeper awareness often develops concerning the flow of subtle energies in and around the body and the connection between these subtle energies and one’s health. This developing awareness validates the ancient idea that strong life force energy contributes to good health. Conversely a diminished supply of life force energy can contribute to illness. The existence of life force energy, and the necessity for it to flow freely in and around one’s body to maintain health, has been studied and acknowledged by health care practitioners and scientists.

Our body is composed not only of physical elements such as muscles, bones, nerves, arteries, organs, glands, etc.; it also has a subtle energy system through which life force energy flows. This subtle energy system is composed of energy ‘bodies’ which surround our physical body and assist us in processing our thoughts and emotions.

The energy bodies have energy centers called chakras, which work somewhat like valves that allow life force to circulate through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. We also have energy meridians and nadas. These are like rivers, or streams, which carry our life force energy throughout our physical body, to nourish us and assist in balancing our body’s systems and functions.

Our physical body is alive because of the ‘life force energy’ that is flowing though it. If our life force is low or blocked, we are more likely to become ill, but if it is high and free flowing, we more easily maintain health and a feeling of well-being. One thing that disrupts and weakens the flow of life force energy is stress. Stress is often caused by conflicting thoughts and feelings that get lodged in one’s subtle energy system. These include fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, etc. Medical research has determined that continual stress can block the body’s natural ability to repair, regenerate and protect itself.

The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75%-95% of all visits to doctors are the results of reaction to stress. The effects of unreleased stress range from minor aches to major health concerns, such as heart disease, digestive disorders, respiratory and skin problems.

Stress can also activate our fears and cause our life force energy to diminish. When this happens we weaken our ability to respond to fear appropriately and to transform it.

Reiki is a technique that aids the body in releasing stress and tension by creating deep relaxation. Because of this, Reiki promotes healing and health.

The Reiki system is comprised of techniques for transmitting this subtle energy to yourself and others through the hands, eyes or chakras into the human subtle energy system. Reiki restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. It gently and effectively opens blocked meridians, nadas and chakras, and clears the energy bodies, leaving one feeling relaxed and at peace.

Karuna Reiki® is a healing energy that assists us in awakening to Universal compassion and the wisdom of our soul. Compassion is a state of consciousness, which when combined with energy, has great transformational power. Karuna Reiki® has evolved as a result of a partnering, or co-creatorship between humanity and the Divine through the worldwide practice of Usui Reiki.

Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action.” When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.

Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing is quickened as well.

Karuna Reiki® opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.

Reiki can:
  • Accelerate healing
  • Assist the body in cleansing toxins
  • Balance the flow of subtle energy by releasing blockages
  • Help awaken the ‘healer within
  • Assist in the manifestation of goals
  • Help heal relationships
  • Assist in elevating our communications with others to the higher self level
  • Discern the appropriate next “step” on our spiritual path
  • Assist in the process of spiritual transition
  • Enhance creativity
  • Assist in aligning one with their Divine Purpose

Reiki is truly “Limitless Love”. There is nothing that Divine Love cannot heal, and Reiki is a form of Divine Love that can be learned by anyone and used to help themselves, others and the planet.

A treatment feels like warm, gentle sunshine, which flows through you, surrounds you and brings comfort. Reiki treats the person’s body, emotions, mind and spirit as a whole. Reiki is powerful, yet wonderfully gentle and nurturing. During a treatment, the recipient remains fully clothed. Reiki supports any medical, or supplemental healing methods a client may be using and is of growing interest to chiropractors, medical doctors, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, psychologists and hypnotherapists.

Anyone can learn to tap into an unlimited supply of ‘life force energy’ to improve health and enhance the quality of life by learning Reiki, or by receiving treatments from a Reiki Practitioner or Master.

Ways To Wellness Reiki Classes

Want to learn more?

Ways To Wellness offers a full range of Reiki training and certification. We also have short evening classes for the beginner who just wants to learn if Reiki is right for them.

Did you know anyone can transfer energy to another person?

What makes Reiki different is the attunement received in a Reiki class from a Reiki Master.  During the attunement, adjustments are made in the student’s energy pathways to accommodate the ability to channel Reiki and link the student to the universal source. Then the student need only intend that the Reiki flows, and it does – effortlessly. It is that simple, yet amazingly effective.

Even as a first level Reiki practitioner, you will be able to give Reiki to other people, animals, and situations. Reiki accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal physical ailments and opens the mind and spirit to the causes of disease, disharmony and pain. Reiki loosens blocked energy and allows the body to reestablish its natural equilibrium.

Reiki may also be used for self-treatment. Once you are attuned to Reiki, you are able to channel the healing energy for yourself at any time, simply by your intention. You may reduce your stress or anxiety, relieve pain, etc. Once again, the possibilities are endless.

It is important to note that Reiki does not interfere with traditional medicine or treatments but enhances the effectiveness of these methods, thereby making it a beneficial compliment to most treatments, therapies, and healing or relaxation techniques.
