What is Reiki?

Reiki is Spiritually Guided Energy

Reiki is a method of working with energy that allows the body to clear itself. Reiki is the universal energy that flows through all living things. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.

So Reiki is “spiritually guided life force energy” or Spiritually Guided Energy.

It Starts with a Conscious Intent

A Reiki session starts with a conscious intent and consist of the client receiving the energy that they require in that moment in time.

The goal of the session is to relieve and release any kind of blockage accumulated in your body, soul and spirit. It will allow you to access a deep state of relaxation and peace. The intentions are often to:

  • Access deep relaxation

  • Help speed healing

  • Reduce stress and anxiety

  • Balance the chakras

  • Reduce pain and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing

  • Deeply connect to your spiritual nature

  • Receive insights and wisdom from your higher-self

  • Identify and change your limited beliefs and subconscious patterns

Although those are all valid intentions, it is preferable to have a narrow specific intent at the outset then let go. And surrender to the present experience of Reiki.

For those familiar with mediation, Reiki might feel familiar to deep states of meditation where the conscious mind has let go. Shalom’s healing sessions will leave you feeling balanced and revitalized while clearing your Chakras and removing blocks that could be draining your energy and hindering your ability to manifest your desires.

Reiki, the universal life force energy, is available to everyone. During the session the energy flows through me to you, going to whichever parts of your physical, mental and spiritual bodies need them most.

Most people notice a significant difference after their first Reiki treatment, and the benefits grow with repeated sessions.

A session can bring the natural healing process in physical, emotional and spiritual levels as you release stagnant energy that you’re ready to let go of.

Just a few sessions can make a positive change to your health. You’ll feel relaxed and shifted as you find your natural state of well-being.

The 5 Precepts of Reiki

These five precepts are the building blocks upon which

Reiki healer base their practice and lives.

Just for today, I will:

  • Cultivate inner peace

  • Be worry and fear-free

  • Live in Gratitude

  • Work with integrity

  • Be compassionate with myself and others

The insistence on today is a practical sentence meant to focus our attention on the NOW. Despite our monkey mind habits of getting hijacked and limited by the trauma of the past and the anxiety of the future, it is in the present moment that the fullness of our powers can be experienced.

It is in the NOW that we exist, create and heal. It is in the NOW that a conscious pause can be created between our triggers and our reactions. Where we can bring awareness to our programing and habits and bring forth a new reality. One where we can make different choices. Where we can choose to direct our energy toward what bring us the highest joy – as opposed to sinking our energies into worry, anger and other energy sapping activities.
