What is Reiki?
Reiki is the Fung Shui of the body!!
Feng Shui (pronounced "fung shway") examines how the placement of things and objects within it affect the energy flow in your living environment, and how these objects interact with and influence your personal energy flow. Your personal energy flow effects how you think and act, which in turn effects how well you perform and succeed in your personal and professional life. Feng Shui affects your every moment of the day.
For example: let us say an old relationship created a broken heart; so you built this wall around your heart to protect it. When we reach our next relationship we call it “baggage” but really it’s that wall! We cannot fully be available for our next relationship or the next opportunities in life when we have these walls.
A theory is that we are all energy. That energy flows through us and into all things. Reiki is the energetic act of breaking down these barriers we build inside of ourselves so we a good energy flow, so we can be available to opportunities as they come.
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
