What is Reiki - “Energy is all there is "
Reiki is an energy – 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”. When we use this in healing, it acts holistically, affecting all of the energies that compromise the human body, or animals or anything else in the natural world.
First you have to understand that everything is energy, without getting into the detail, Quantum Physics has proved every atom in everything that exists is 99.999% energy and only 0.0001% is matter, therefore you are made up of more energy than actual solid matter. Human Beings are also comprised of electromagnetic energy, and every cell, atom and subatomic particle that makes up the human body is vibrating at different rates depending upon their biochemical make up.
Scientist & Professor Valerie .V Hunt’s pioneering research of human bio-energy and the application of that research evaluating alternative treatments such as Reiki (hands-on healing), to measure changes in bio-energetic frequencies of the human body. Recording the output at sites on the body (chakras) with some very interesting results.
The electromagnetic output of the whole body can be measured using an electro-myograph, with the normal biological frequency of the human body being 250cps (cycles per second). This was evidenced when Professor Hunt carried out a number of experiments on a variety of people, but when the tests are carried out on people who used or were receiving healing energies (such as Reiki), it was found that their energy frequencies registered in a band between 400 and 800cps. This pioneering research and study provided scientific evidence to prove that energy healing can raise ones vibrational energetic frequency. Science, therefore has finally confirmed something that has been part of the spiritual wisdom of many cultures for thousands of years; that an unseen energy flows through and connects to all living things.
On another note all our thoughts, words, intentions are all energetic frequencies. If you are prone to negative thinking your mind and body vibrate at a lower frequency which can have an impact on your mental and physical health if balance is not restored. Why is this relevant to Reiki? because this new science actually now explains that when we experience ‘good health’ it means that we are achieving a state of perfect subatomic communication between every part of the body; ‘ill health‘ is a state where that communication breaks down, so basically we become ill when our energy waves are out of synch.
I am fully trained in traditional Usui Reiki, I also use Quantum Healing Touch were I raise my vibration and work intuitively to place my hands several inches off and occasionally on the client’s body to allow Reiki energy flow through me and my hands onto the client to restore balance within their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies by raising the client’s bio-energy field. I do not see myself as a ‘healer’ but simply a vehicle to allow the channeling of ‘Ki’ Life Force Energy through me which then resonates with the client’s energetic field, raising their vibration which creates an ideal environment for healing to take place.
