What Is Reiki?

 

Reiki translates as Universal Life Force Energy or Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy. This Energy is all around us and flows through all living things.  Reiki is born out of the Source of all creativity, is spiritual in nature and is an Energy of Wholeness that cannot be separated or manipulated.  Reiki helps to increase and rebalance our energy flow, promoting wellbeing and inner-peace on every level (physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually) and accelerates our own ability to heal ourselves.  Reiki also enhances your sixth sense and spiritual insight.

 

Reiki is the Love that’s in your Heart which flows through your Hands….

 

Reiki is a natural form of healing and is applied through non-invasive gentle touch.  It guides Itself through the divinely intelligent part of our being, our Higher Self.  It is, therefore, a safe method of spiritual healing and self-development that everybody can use and learn.  There is also no age limit – anyone can be initiated into Reiki (five years of age and older).

 

“A good place to start is in our hands…”  Eckhart Tolle

How Does Reiki Work ~ Hands-On & Distance Healing?

The energy by-passes the symptom and goes to the cause of the problem to allow healing to take place.  It fills the vibratory need and amplifies the homeostatic response of the body’s natural healing ability.  It restores harmony to the mind and invokes fulfilment of the spirit-soul.

Reiki addresses the divine genius in us that knows more about what is necessary for our healing than anybody else.  Reiki is a way to Self-Mastery, and healing is the gift you receive along the way.

One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities.  This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Inner (Higher) Self to promote health and wellbeing of the entire physical, emotional and spiritual body.  Therefore, it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of Mind, Body and Spirit.

 

“The power of changing oneself lies not in the mind but in the body and feelings.”

~ G.I. Gurdjieff

 

Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as emotional or physical trauma, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt and anger. Imbalances can also be caused from a destructive lifestyle or from relationships where there is a lack of love. Other imbalances can stem from a lack of self-love, self-worth, insecurities or depression.

 

When our Spirit and Soul are nurtured,

we are more easily able to rejuvenate our Whole Being.

Metaphysics ~ Beyond the Physical

 

“I want to know God’s thoughts, the rest are details” Albert Einstein 

Reiki and Metaphysics (meaning beyond the physical) are a powerful combination, and this is a true passion of mine.  It helps us in our quest for truth, purpose and the meaning of our lives.

Personally, metaphysics has opened my eyes to a deeper level of understanding into ‘what is happening here and now’ by providing insight into the causation of my catalysts and symptoms, whatever they may be.  It also continues to bring humour into my journey of self-awareness and defuses any guilt, judgement and criticism.

A catalyst or symptom can be as simple as parking or speeding fines.  When these occur, the ‘life’ message from the universe may be as simple as “you’ve been sitting in the same space for too long – time to take the next step” and “slow down – focus on the here and now.”

Metaphysics “is a spiritual, scientific inquiry of the immaterial and explains a spiritual knowledge beyond what we call the physical realm” and “should not be seen as a philosophical belief system but as a possible translucent bridge to something greater.” Marcus Nassner – “The Heart of the Enlightened Being”

Looking at symptoms from a higher dimension, from the beyond, has been an imperative part of our work. It has been tremendously liberating for many people, and it has brought clarity and empowerment to many who decided to responsibly participate in their healing process.  Perhaps it’s time for you to become your own Metaphysician!

Metaphysics is a matrix you go through to experience greater Love and Awareness.

In the book ‘The Heart of the Enlightened Being’, written by Marcus Nassner and edited by me, there is a chapter on Metaphysics which goes into more detail.

Reiki Is Not

 

  • A religion or cult. Reiki is spiritual in nature and not religious.  Reiki is now practiced around the world, in many cultures where religious beliefs differ.
  • A form of mind control. Because Reiki is Spiritual in nature, It, therefore, cannot be manipulated.
  • A form of massage.
  • A psychic reading or means to invade others’ privacy.
  • A diagnostic aid – I do not diagnose, and I encourage people to follow medical advice.
