What is Reiki? Reiki is when the Reiki practitioner places their hands on or over the body and positive healing energy is sent from their hands into the body. It’s a non religious practice, there are no instruments except the hands, and no medication is used (which is why I am so interested in it). Absolutely no one can or has ever been harmed by the use of Reiki (which means NO SIDE EFFECTS!)…this is the generic definition that you’ll find in almost any website about Reiki.
Now me, if you ask me, I would tell you that Reiki is LOVE. Pure positive LOVE. Love is energy, this energy is LOVE! When you were young and you hurt yourself, your mother placed her hand over the bruised area and rubbed it lightly…this was her loving touch. She didn’t need anyone to tell her to do this, it was instinctive.
There was an unfortunate study in a concentration camp where half the babies received absolutely no touch, no love from anyone. …they died. Touch is inherently LOVE. Without LOVE we would die. ..and sometimes when we are hurting, usually because we have ignored parts of ourselves, we need more love in those parts. That’s where Reiki’s Loving Energy comes in.
So if you want or need some of mothers LOVE, then I would say Reiki is for you!
