Hi, I’m Hayden Crawford and I’m a Reiki Master and Soul Purpose Expert living in SW Australia.
I’ve been practicing this ancient Japanese healing modality for 18 years and have seen some amazing results on people’s mental, emotional and physical health.
Reiki quite simply means Universal Life Energy, Soul Energy or Aura. (Rei = Universal Life, Essence and Ki = Light, Energy, Vital Life Force). It was re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui who adopted the five Reiki Principles from the Waka poetry of Japan’s Emperor, Meji (1818-1912).
So how does it work?
Here are 10 amazing things you should know about Reiki…
It is a method of accessing concentrated life force energy and projecting it onto another organism, whether that is human, animal, fish, bird, seed, plant or even water. This life force flows through all things, animating the body, restoring the emotions and calming the mind.
2. Restores Equilibrium
Reiki encompasses all levels of existence and intelligently restores equilibrium. The recipient naturally absorbs the energy during a treatment and the Reiki healer becomes a channel through which this vital life force flows. It is a beautiful exchange of energy which leaves both parties feeling uplifted and restored.
3. Reiki Can’t Be Lost
The Reiki healer also has the luxury of being able to work on his or her own body. Once attuned they have this sublime energy freely flowing through their hands until the day they die, even if it has not been activated for a long period of time.
4. Reiki Is Intelligent
Reiki is intelligent. It will go to the places in the body that require it the most so even if you try and direct the flow it knows what requires rebalancing first and so can never be misused or harmful. It streams through weakened areas of our subtle body and charges them with positive energy which boosts the vibrations of the energy field. This cleanses the aura of negative thoughts and feelings whilst balancing the energy pathways so the life force can flow at the optimum level.
5. Five Reiki Principles
There are five Reiki Principles which are recognized as a method of inviting happiness and as a technique to activate well being. They can be used as a mantra twice a day as a reminder of the simplicity of life.
“Just for today, I will let go of worry”
“Just for today, I will let go of anger”
“Just for today, I will give thanks to my many blessings”
“Just for today, I will do my work honestly”
“Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbors and all living things”
6. Connects Chakras, Meridians & Auric Field
The life force flows within the physical body through channels and spinning vortices called Chakras and Meridians. It circulates around the body in an energy field called the Aura.
The organs and the cells of the body are replenished by this universal life force energy but when this is disturbed the functioning of the physical body can deplete quickly and we fall ill.
7. Correlates To Thoughts & Feelings
This life force correlates with our thoughts and feelings. If we develop negative beliefs over a long period of time, they get caught up in our outer causal bodies and can seriously weaken the functioning of our vital organs.
8. Brain Waves Synchronize
The brain waves of the patient and practitioner harmonize and integrate during a Reiki treatment in the alpha state. This pulsates in alliance with the universal magnetic field which amplifies the bio-magnetic field of the healers’ hands by over one thousand times. This connection enables the practitioner to utilize the universal energy field and it is attracted to where the body requires it the most.
One of the first things you may experience during a treatment is pain relief. I used to live with severe lower back pain and Reiki was the only thing that would take the pain in my lumbar spine away.
10. Creates Various Experiences
Reiki can induce a spectrum of responses. Some people see colors whilst others feel a deep sense of peace. Others feeling like their body is floating or as heavy as lead. Many people have an emotional release through tears of joy or grief. I have seen twitching, spasming and even the whole body gyrating during a treatment. Others can receive messages from their loved ones in spirit or the angelic realm.
