Our body’s energy system consists of 7 chakras. The Sanskrit word Chakras- translates to wheel or disk of energy. Theses swirling energy centers store the energy of our thoughts, feelings, memories, experiences, and actions. It is essential for the chakras to stay open and aligned. If they become blocked- the energy flow is then restricted and can result in dis-ease in the body.
The lower chakras are connected to the earthbound matters like survival, power and sex. The upper chakras, the top 3, are connected to intuition, truth, purpose and higher consciousness. The heart chakra is in the middle to connect the lower and upper chakras using love, compassion and empathy.
Reiki is the process of guiding this energy to release any blockages and to restore the flow, healing and the balance of energy. This will allow harmony in the body spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and energetically. The practitioner is not the source of the healing, but a channel for the client’s own energy.
Reiki is not a religion. This is an ancient, complimentary, holistic health approach, but does not replace medical care.
