What Is Reiki?
What is reiki? This is the number one question I get when I tell people I am a reiki practitioner. So, let's get into it. Reiki is an ancient energy healing modality from Japan. The energy is channeled from Source, goes through the practitioner then into your body. The Source energy clears blockages and allows your energy channels to flow freely. God operates in the highest vibration of unconditional love; This vibration goes through you and surrounds you and lifts you up to its level so you can't live in those lower vibrational emotions. This energy brings on a very calming state that I call an "in-between". I call it "in-between" because you are in an altered state, you are not quite awake or asleep. This altered state is caused by the slowing down of your brain waves. It takes you out of your everyday, busy beta and puts you in the healing alpha, theta & delta states.
