The Essence of Healing

What is Reiki? It's intangible, invisible, formless, not of the senses, a subtle field of energy, the essence of life, universal life energy.

We experience Reiki by: remaining in the moment, letting go of thoughts, connecting to our breath, acknowledging any and all feelings, allowing our selves to just be.

Reiki is a meditative art. The treatment pattern is simple, yet sophisticated, for it provides a framework for the practitioner to shift into an active state of being. This state might also be described as an alpha or theta level of consciousness. Anyone can do this practice.  In fact, one's meditative abilities are enhanced by the natural energetic connection that occurs between two people during treatments. In Reiki healing you do nothing and achieve everything.  Reiki, like many natural healing methods, is a powerful adjunct and sometimes a viable alternative to the chemical/surgical methods developed by the modern rational mind.  Each way has its own right place and time.

Healing can be a mysterious process.  Each person moves in his or her own rhythm. We want to take care to be open, to allow space for all of our successes and failures and also for the successes and failures of others. At times it may appear as if discomfort and pain are continuing in spite of all one's efforts. In these cases, perhaps some underlying healing process is going on or some deep learning is taking place, temporarily adding tension to the situation. Sometimes it may appear that all discomfort or pain is gone, completely dissolved. At other times it may feel as though we are moving ahead inch by inch, or in a long, slow series of plateaus.

All this, Life itself, is something we freely participate in the gathering, storing, amplifying, releasing, and dispersing of life force our very nature. Through our own great joy and awareness, effort and discipline, we open to the moment. And in that moment there is only love, power, and healing.
