April 19, 2016 12:00 am | Updated 02:04 am IST

What is ‘Reiki’ ? ‘Reiki’ is a Japanese word ‘Rei’ means ‘universal’ or ‘spiritual’. ‘Ki’ is the ‘prana’ which means ‘life energy force’. ‘Reiki’ universal life energy force is more commonly understood as a simple hands-on healing system.

Rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the late 19th century, it can be used to heal oneself as well as others. ‘Reiki’ is, in fact, the fundamental energy of which the universe is made up. ‘Reiki’ is, therefore, everywhere, and exists as everything. What is its Nature & How does ‘‘Reiki’’ Work ‘Reiki’ energy is spiritual in nature. This process corrects any energy imbalance resulting from a disharmonious pattern of absorption and recirculation of the cosmic energy within the human system – leading to all-round physical, mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual health. ‘Reiki’ can only be used for noble and positive ends to heal.

‘Reiki’ is nothing but unlimited and unconditional pure love energy of the Latent Oneness for all that comprises it. This love energy is the greatest vibration available to mankind. One of the most curious things about ‘Reiki’ is that you can make no mistake in its use-it has its own intelligence.

The provider of ‘Reiki’ energy is merely a channel. Though it is impossible to use ‘Reiki’ to cause anyone harm, ‘Reiki’ may release suppressed negative emotions – anger, depression and so forth – against one’s expectations.

‘Reiki’ energy enters from the crown chakra from the north to throat chakra down to the heart chakra before flowing out through the channel’s palms in a counter-clock wise helical path finally releases negative energy down the soles of the feet.

With regular use of ‘Reiki’, old mental and emotional blocks start, dissolving. The effects of ‘Reiki’ ‘Reiki’ helps restoring the lost balance between the mind, body and spirit acquired by a human because of changing eating habits, environment & the society we live in. Because it transcends both time and space.

‘Reiki’ soothes pain, hastens the healing process, stops bleeding (if not too profuse), relaxes and rejuvenates the body, balances the chakras and energy body and balances the two hemispheres of the brain. Possibilities with ‘Reiki’ The ability to keep your cool and cheer increased self confidence and performance levels. ‘Reiki’ can be used to heal the environment and mother earth.

‘Reiki’ can help develop intuition and better decision making quicker & easier. ‘Reiki’ can be used to make the earth a cleaner, greener and more loving, peaceful and blissful place to live.

Attunements The secret spiritual ritual through which it is acquired is known as an attunement. Attunements allow us to relink ourselves to our forgotten, limitless self by dissolving the self created blocks that keep us from it. Open and align us to what has been there but been forgotten.

Attunement is not a healing session, brings about profound healing at various levels of being, make one a channel of healing energy so that one can use ‘Reiki’ to heal oneself and others.

This happens because of the immediate release of certain blocks and toxins, and signifies that whatever negativity the person was holding has been released.


Attunements trigger a twenty one-day cleansing process, period known as a cycle.

During this period the recipient’s body adjusts and readjusts to the changes taking place at all levels of his being.

Helps all the seven chakras take about 3 days each to adjust to the stepped-up energy levels (21 day cycle).
