Reiki is a stress relieving technique . Its a hands on healing way to feel fresh and fit. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. It is a japanese spiritual healing technique. Its founder is Mikau Usui. According to Reiki practioners, every living creature has the ability to connect to their own energies. One can utilise this capability to strengthen this very energy in oneself as well as in other living beings.
There are 7 chakras in everyone . This diagram depicts all 7 chakras which need healing to be free of all physical and mental problems. Chakras are energy centers through which energy enters and leaves the bodies, both the physical body and the bodies of the aura. When energy flows through the whole body it creates harmony and releases dis-ease. During a Reiki therapy session, a patient typically lies down on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands over (or directly on top of) the patient’s body in various positions, starting at the crown of the head getting rid of blockages in every chakra. While giving reiki , practitioners also use symbols to make it more effective. Patient may feel sensations, vibrations , heat or tingling in body.
But everyone needs to know its not a cure for any disease or illness but it guides or develops positive attitude to get fine soon. It is not a substitute to any medical or traditional care but it is complementary to it. Some Scientists say Reiki is like a placebo effect . Some say it is pseudo science. Some study says its like electro magnetic energy which interacts with a person’s electromagnetic field. There is no theory that gives 100% evidence about working of reiki. We cannot see god , we still tend to believe that there is some universal power helping us to get rid of all our problems. In Hindus, chanting of “OM” is considered effective and used in meditation to have calm mind and also has some effects on physical body and mind as mind and body are interrelated. In the same way, Reiki is an energy which cannot be seen but still has lot of impact . So, don’t you think, Reiki can be useful in controlling your psychology ?
