What is Reiki?
Reiki is an specific energy healing technique that uses energy from the universe to calm your mind, heal your body and restore your natural energy flow, for optimum health and wellbeing.
Energy healing comes in lots of different forms; no two are exactly alike but they all share similar basic principles. Traditional Reiki was developed in the early 20th century by Dr Usui, a Japanese monk and scholar, who took his inspiration from ancient Buddhist healing practices. Various forms of energy healing have been practised all over the world, in different countries and cultures, for millennia. It’s an ancient wisdom that we’ve been losing over time. As technology’s advanced, our natural intuition and ability to heal ourselves has regressed, but we haven’t lost this inherent capacity for healing – we just need to rediscover it.
Why learn it?
Life gets easier when you can heal yourself. Imagine having the skills to calm yourself, to reset your racing mind and feel relaxed within a matter of minutes. Picture being able to quickly rid yourself of all your stress and anxiety, and reverse the symptoms of minor illnesses before they’ve taken a hold on you. This is all possible, with Reiki healing. It’s an easy, intuitive, instinctive practice – and once shown, you can literally do it with your eyes closed.
Our bodies have an incredible, natural ability to heal themselves, but sometimes they need a gentle nudge in the right direction. In just a day, after a Reiki 1 workshop, you’ll be able to connect to a universal source of energy, that will allow you to heal yourself and other people, whenever and wherever you feel you need it. That might sound impossible, but it’s not! You don’t need to have a gift, literally anyone can do it. However, the lineage from master teacher to student is important in keeping the original energy and ethics in the practice. Our lineage runs directly back to the founder Dr Usui, and so it goes on to our students.
Reiki healing is a life skill that you’ll never regret learning; one that will enhance your natural connection with yourself, with others and with the world around you. Boyfriends, jobs, exercise routines may come and go. But this will be there for life.
