Science has confirmed that everything in the universe is made up of energy, vibrating and oscillating at different rates. Reiki is a energy that vibrates at a very high rate, and it works at an energetic level with both the physical body as well as the emotional body. Therefore, Reiki can help your healing on many different levels, from the physical to the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.
The energy that comprises the human energy field has various names, depending on the spiritual tradition, Ki, Qi, Prana or Life Force. This life force flows within the physical body through the energy centers and the energy pathways called miridians. When your life force is moving freely, you feel healthy, strong, confident, full of energy, ready to enjoy life and take on challenging tasks, and you are unlikely to become ill. If your life force is blocked you feel weak, tired and lethargic, and are much more vulnerable to illnesses.
Reiki energy healing helps to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, bringing feelings of harmony and peace. It can freely block feelings and bring calm to emotional or mental distress such as nervousness, fear, depression, anger, or sadness. Reiki healing helps you to forgive yourself and others, to release attachments to past issues, cut old ties that no longer serve you, and let go of the past.
Combining energy work with psychology is a mind-body approach to understanding and improving human functioning. It focuses on the relationship between bioenergy systems, neuro and electro physiological processes, and mental functions involving thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behavior. The mind and body energy system are thought to be interwoven and interactive within the mind-body-energy system. Combing Reiki with psychotherapy can be beneficially applied to the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, pain, stress, psychophysioloical issues, and self-sabatoaging behaivors to regulate affect and promote emotional and physical health.
