Reiki- The Energy Flow

Reiki is a spiritual practise. It was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healingas a form of alternative medicine and is sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional medical bodies.


Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system.

During the Reiki healing session the practitioner will place his hands lightly on different parts of your body. Some Reiki practitioners will follow a predetermined sequence of hand placements, allowing their hands to rest on each body placement for 2 to 5 minutes before moving on to the next. Empathic practitioners will freely move their hands in no particular order to the areas where they “feel” Reiki is most needed. Some Reiki practitioners do not actually touch their clients. Instead, they will hover their lifted palms a few inches above the reclined body.

There are two main branches of Reiki, commonly referred to as Traditional Japanese Reiki andWestern Reiki. Though differences can be wide and varied between both branches and traditions, the primary difference is that the Westernised forms use systematised hand-placements rather than relying on an intuitive sense of hand-positions , which is commonly used by Japanese Reiki branches.


Both branches commonly have a three-tiered hierarchy of degrees, usually referred to as the First, Second, and Master/Teacher level, all of which are associated with different skills and techniques.There are many techniques used for teaching all the three different degrees of reiki.There are many types of reiki symbols.Many Reiki Masters consider the Reiki symbols holy and persist in the old Reiki tradition that they must be kept secret. The symbols should only be available to those who have been initiated at the Reiki 2 level.

The Reiki symbols are partly based on the Japanese writing system, Kanji. The symbols should be drawn or visualized as they have been taught during the Reiki 2 Attunement. As more and more people get attuned to Reiki this will mean that there can be a great number of variations between the symbols taught by different Masters. This is not really a problem as there is not a 100% right or wrong way to draw them. The Reiki symbols given to a student will work however they look as they incorporate the intention and the connection to the metaphysical energies it represents. Today there are many different forms of Reiki and some have incorporated their own symbols in their initiations. In “traditional” Reiki there are three Reiki symbols given during the Reiki 2 Attunement (initiation). They are: the Power symbol (Choku Rei), the Mental/Emotional symbol (Sei He Ki) and the Distance symbol (Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen).


Reiki heals many people, my cousin Zara was suffering from high fever regularly , we were not able to heal her from the pain . But after we took her to a reiki master , she got healed and healthy after 5 reiki sessions . The healing depends on the reiki sessions .

Reiki even has chakras . To understand Reiki and the hand positions used one will have to have some knowledge of the chakras. There are seven chakras of reiki .Chakra is a Sanskrit word and means “wheel”. A wheel that spins around its own axis and can spin fast or slowly. A chakra will spin in relation to the energy level of your system.

Every chakra has a corresponding organ in our physical system.
The root chakra belongs together with the large intestine and the rectum. It also has a certain influence on the function of the kidneys.
The navel chakra belongs to the reproduction system, the testicles and ovaries and also the urinary bladder and kidneys.
The solar plexus chakra is in relation to the liver, gall bladder, stomach, spleen and the small intestine.
The heart chakra belongs to the heart and the arms.
The throat chakra relates to the lungs and the throat.
The third eye chakra belongs to the brain, face, nose, eyes etc.
The crown chakra does not have a corresponding organ but is related to the whole being.

There is a clear connection between the condition of a chakra and the condition of the corresponding organ. A chakra can be over active, under active or in balance. Using Reiki can give the chakras balance and the organs health.The chakras change energy from one level to another by distributing Ki to the physical body. This is partly done through the endocrine system that regulates other systems in the body
