Reiki explained simply

Posted by Alison Lowther 574 Days Ago


Reiki How does it actually work? All matter is energy.  Everything in our Universe is made of energy.  Our physical bodies are constantly moving and vibrating units of energy, through which other energies around us, and with which we come into contact will flow. Our bodies are fluid and formless – it is only due to the... [read more]

History of Reiki Reiki is believed to have begun in Tibet several thousand years ago. Seers in the Orient studied energies and developed a system of sounds and symbols for universal healing energies. Various healing systems, which crossed many different cultures, emerged from this single root system. Unfortunately, the original source itself was forgotten. Dr. Mikao Usui, a... [read more]

I first heard this phrase when I attended a workshop in Germany with Phyllis Lei Furumoto. I was fascinated by the concept of looking at our Reiki practice from different angles. Cornerstones,  if you will, recognisable stages in the journey and yet constantly interacting with each other all the time, like a beautiful weave of personal... [read more]

Sometimes referred to as remote treatments these go one step further than simply having the hands off the body when giving Reiki. With a distance treatment the client can be in a different room, building, town or even country than the person giving Reiki. That’s right, there can be hundreds or thousands of miles between the...
