How Does Reiki Work?
It is said that life force energy nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this life force energy is disrupted, it can lead to diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
Life force energy is also responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force energy.
A Reiki practitioner balances one’s life force energy by sending in positive energy to straighten and heal disrupted energy pathways. The positive energy goes where it is needed for healing. A Reiki practitioner’s hands usually hover slightly off the body. Reiki does not require direct touch, but can involve light, gentle pressure if desired. It is important to remember that Reiki can never cause harm.
