What is Reiki?
"Every part of the system of Reiki is ultimately about meditation and compassion as keys to healing"
Oden Reiki is a complementary therapy and a form of energy healing that originated in Japan in the early 20th century, set into practice by a spiritual man named Mikao Usui. The word “Reiki” is a combination of two Japanese words: “rei,” which means “God’s wisdom,” or “the higher power,” and “ki,” which means “life force energy.”
Reiki involves stimulating a healthy flow of energy in the body. The Reiki practitioner guides Reiki life force energy throughout the body (by either placing their hands on or near the body) to promote the recipient’s self-healing abilities. They do not cause the healing, nor are they the source of that healing energy; they simply act as a channel for the energy to be transmitted to the person who needs it through their attunement to Reiki itself, and with their loving intention and presence.
Energetic blockages might be located in our physical bodies, our subtle bodies, or both. The physical body is where we experience localised pain/discomfort and the subtle body, where our life force energy exists, can hold imbalances and traumas long before they manifest in our physical bodies. Reiki intelligently goes to where it is needed in the body, enabling blocked energy to be released, helping to rebalance and restore the energetic filtration system of each chakra, so that the stuck energy can be recycled back into our life force. Ultimately, this leads to a state of ease and well-being in one's body, mind and spirit.
Reiki energy is a very gentle form of energy healing and there are no known contraindications, so it can be called upon in any situation, even in cases of more developed diagnoses such as cancer or end of life care, to help with symptoms such as pain and anxiety. It can also be sent remotely (i.e. distance healing), as the energy can travel across time and space, which is perfect if you are unable or too overwhelmed to travel but can dedicate 30 minutes of your time at home to lie back and receive the energy if you need the support.
