Reiki is love...first and foremost.
Self energy and working on others brings out the best in me.
My love of energy work has taken many twists and turns over the years. As a child without knowing how energy worked, I found myself enabling or feeling situations that perhaps not all were aware of, working situations to my best advantage and just thinking it was a coincidence.
We all have the ablity to tune into energy, but some of us make the practice a prority and therefore seem gifted, when infact we are all energy spirit beings and therefore we all have the 'gift'.
Reiki as defined by the Oxford English dictionary is:
“A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.
The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy. It was developed by Mikao Usui the early 20th century, as a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s.
