Energy healing has been around and practiced for centuries. Although referred to by different names, the term used most often in our modern day is Reiki. Reiki, pronounced, Ray~ Key, received its official name by Dr. Mikao Usui. Located in Japan, after many years of meditation, study and world-wide searching, he discovered the key to Reiki in the Sanskrit Sutras.
Reiki is defined as “Universal Life Force”. It flows through everyone’s body and is transformed through ones hands in concentrated form and intention when giving Reiki to oneself or to another. All things in creation are made up of energy, whether it is a living organism or a physical object. Of course living things, depending on its complexity, will vibrate and emanate more or less energy. We all have the ability to channel this Universal Healing Energy, but through special classes and initiations, those trained in modalities of energy-work and of Reiki, are given the tools and understanding to more efficiently channel this healing energy more purely. Through each initiation (3 main levels), the Reiki student becomes a clearer and clearer vessel, eliminating any physical and emotional debris from either past unresolved issues in this lifetime or past lives. The students personal vibratory rate becomes stronger and stronger with each initiation and possibly cycle out people, jobs and situations that can not possibly serve us in the highest good or in the long run. But in the same respect, those things/people who will enhance our lives and basically assist us on our spiritual journey, will be brought to the forefront. In many instances I have noticed that some students Divine purposes start to reveal themselves. One thing is for sure with my own experience~ Once beginning this energy work, your life will transform itself to nothing you could ever have imagined.

HOW REIKI HEALING ENERGY WORKS
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our “life force” is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well being.
Reiki Healing Energy provides means to balance the human energy fields (Auras) and energy centers (Chakras) to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function.
The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. By the use of ancient healing symbols the practitioner channels the Universal Life Force energy allowing it to flow where is needed to bring the energy centers into alignment.
The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. He/She plays an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the healee to manifest harmony and balance in their own life.
The Chakra System
Chakras are referred to as the entry gates of the aura. The work “Chakra”, in Sanskrit, translates to wheel or disc. They are centers of activity that receives, assimilates and expresses life force energy and are responsible for ones physical, emotional, mental and spiritual functions. Although the body contains a multitude of these chakras, the most significant ones are the 7 Main Chakras located along the central line of the body, stemming from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
At a closer look at the locations of the 7 Main Chakra Energy Centers, you will notice that they all coincide with the bodies major organs and glandular systems.
Each of these Chakras are also associated with physical, emotional and spiritual functions, aforementioned, and can become sluggish and create dis-ease within us. When these Chakras, through Energy Work, are realigned and balanced they begin to spin in sync, creating a setting for our bodies to do what they were designed to do naturally, begin to self heal itself.
