As an individual who feels their purpose in life it to help others, Reiki and I just seemed to be a natural fit. While many people who don’t know much about Reiki think it is mumbo-jumbo, it actually does have a basis in quantum physics and is not new-age crazy stuff.
Everything, including you and me, are made up of atoms. Atoms are made up of particles that are either positive (protons), negative (electrons) or neutral (neutrons). Additionally, the electrical attraction between this tiny particles, relatively speaking, travels quite a distance. Now, zoom out from that atomic window and think of a living body. It (you, me, your pet or even a tree) are made up of trillions of atoms existing in space and full of electrical attraction.
The term reiki comes from a generic translation of universal energy. It is very much like the Qi energy of Qigong and TaiChi Chuan and Prana in Yoga. And remember from science class: energy can’t be created or destroyed, it can only change form.
So here we are, energy beings in a physical form. Sometimes the energy in our bodies gets blocked or misdirected. We get sick or simply feel unwell. Reiki practitioners are here to help. Through our training, we understand how to help you reconnect with universal energy – to your highest good. No medicines, no weird exercises, no chemicals. Just energy. And we don’t even need to touch you to do it.
That is Reiki.
I’m adding my practice of Reiki to this blog because it is absolutely Good For You. If you think this is something you need or would like to try, you can find practitioners all over the world through the International Reiki Organization. I am listed there as well. If you feel the need for an in-person session, you should be able to find someone there. I practice distance Reiki (in the time of Covid), so I can access you anywhere.
As I have often said: you are more than the sum of your parts. Your energy defines how you feel – body, mind and spirit. If you’re looking for something that is Good For You, consider Reiki. And remember:
Life is a Journey – enjoy the ride!
