We are all composed of energy.
Reiki is an alternative therapy which can cleanse the energy system of the human body allowing the universal life force energy – ki – to flow more freely.
In the yogic system there are seven main energy centres in the human body known as chakras. When these centres are open and healthy we experience good health physically mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We also experience ease in our relationships and life situations. However, when these energy centres are blocked or out of balance we can experience frustration in life, a lack of vitality and disease.
‘Negative’ life experiences can cause our chakras to become constricted. For example, receiving criticism in childhood for being too loud may cause you to close down the fifth chakra – the throat chakra – limiting your ability to speak up for yourself.
Traumas and fears can lead to long-term imbalances in the energy system which can manifest in problems such as insecurity, anger, stress or disease. So being able to directly tap into the information stored in the energy systems of our bodies and heal blocks and imbalances there is invaluable to health and wellbeing.
Healing energy blocks isn’t so much about 'getting better' but rather about letting go of what isn’t you (such as perceived expectation and judgment) and becoming more able to let the universal life force energy flow freely though you.
