What is Reiki?

Reiki Infused Gemstone Healing JewelryReiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that enhances the body’s natural healing response. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us (chi or prana) and is what causes us to be alive. During times of stress, our energy (chi) may become low which can make us more susceptible to illness (a state of dis-ease) or feel drained. When this energy is high, we are more likely of being happy and healthy.

A Reiki session is relaxing, nurturing and non-invasive. It is effective in relieving stress and promoting preventive measures of health.

Reiki creates a harmonic flow of energy (chi, prana) within the client, releasing blocks or restrictions of energy and creating balance. Healing occurs through the return of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual balance.

Many benefits have been experienced by those who have received Reiki treatments. They include:

  • Reduced stress & anxiety
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Accelerated healing
  • Pain relief
  • Increased creativity
  • Strengthening of the immune system
  • Rejuvenation of body & soul
  • Aid in detoxification
  • Physical, emotional, spiritual and mental balancing
  • Reduced sides effects of chemotherapy
  • Spiritual growth
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Increased ability to handle life’s challenges with calmness & clarity

Reiki is much more than an alternative healing method to relieve physical pain, stress and emotional issues and their symptoms. Reiki is holistic, it works on all levels; physical, emotion, mental, spiritual and karmic. Unlike conventional medicine which treats symptoms, Reiki energy goes to the root of the problem to allow healing. Reiki energy is spiritually guided and as such miracles are possible but typically all healing is a process, not an event.

Reiki is a tool to guide you in all areas of your life. It can help to open the flow of creativity and remove any blockages or restrictions that may prevent the receiving of abundance and love. Reiki promotes living in a state of gratitude, integrity, trust, calm, peace, love, joy and understanding the oneness of life. Difficult situations take on a new meaning; the lessons behind them become clear. Judgments are released. Forgiveness and compassion come easily. Coming back into balance is natural.

What Does Reiki-Infused Mean?

Everything is made up of energy and because of this, items, particularly handmade, can reap the benefits of receiving Reiki. It can be looked at as cleansing on the energetic level. For example, working with the gemstone beads… they have been mined, manufactured and shipped. They have been through a lot. I Reiki the beads when I receive them and allow the Reiki to flow while I am creating the jewelry. This raises the energy or vibration of the gemstones and jewelry. Being Reiki infused enhances the existing healing and spiritual properties of the stones.
