Our health and well-being depend greatly on the manner in which the Ki or life force energy flows around and through us.
The human body consists of physical and chemical elements as well as a subtle energy system through which this life force flows. This energy system is made up of an energy field which surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and is called the aura. It contains our life force, thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes – both positive and negative. It also contains information about the state of our physical body, our inter-personal dynamics, our past, our future, our potentials and many more.
It therefore follows that anything that restricts the flow of life force energy, will affect our energy field and therefore our physical body. All negative thoughts and feelings for example, cause disruption in this flow.
The great value of Reiki is that because the Higher Intelligence guides it, it knows exactly where to go and what to do in order to deal with the restrictions in the flow of our life force. As Reiki flows through unhealthy areas, it breaks up energetic obstructions, clears out the energetic waste of negative thoughts or feelings and therefore allows a more optimal flow of life force energy to resume. As this happens, the unhealthy physical organs and tissues receive what is required for the healing to take place.
