Reiki is one of the ancient healing arts, which involves laying-on of hands. A very important healing practice, it helps individuals to strike a balance of the energy within. Reiki helps to balance the mind, emotional stature, spiritual and physical energies that exist within the body.
However, the methods of Reiki must not be substituted for traditional medical treatment and care. Reiki directly heals by spreading positive energy to wherever it is needed. Eventually, the regular practice of Reiki can help in harmonising the body, mind and spirit.
Almost all the mystics who preach different cultures claim that a form of energy, which is affected and evoked by thought, surrounds the physical universe. The Reiki method of healing is flexible, ever evolving and relaxing. It leaves a wonderfully calming effect on the mind as well as the body. The benefits of Reiki treatment are not only restricted to the one receiving it but also to the one giving it. In Reiki treatment, energy seems to be aware of where it is supposed to go and what the object requires from it. Therefore, it is often termed as an intelligent energy. The energy is not derived from the practitioner but she/he is the channel for the healing energy.
What differentiates Reiki treatment from spiritual healing?
Although healing traditions behind all healing methods, be it Reiki or spiritual healing, are the same, only the teaching and the techniques are likely to be different in their approach that lead to spiritual development.
