Mikao Usui was the founder of a form of a spiritual practice known as Reiki, used as an alternative therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases. Reiki is an ancient form of Japanese healing that is practiced by many practitioners around the world. There is an omnipotent energy that gives life to every living thing, and the Japanese call this “Ki.” It is also known as Chi by the Chinese, Prana by a number of Asian cultures, and most of the western world refers to it as the Holy Spirit.
Reiki is an energy healing treatment that works holistically; on the whole body, mind and spirit. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is powerful, yet wonderfully gentle and nurturing. Not a system of religious beliefs, Reiki is simply a relaxing treatment where natural healing vibrations are transmitted through the hands of a Reiki practitioner (acting as a conduit) to the body of the recipient. Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations in the body, from the head to the feet, balancing what are known as chakras.
Chakras, a Sanskrit language word meaning “wheel of life,” are energy centres found through-out the body. The position of each of the major chakras corresponds with an endocrine gland controlling hormonal balance. These chakras are located at the base of the spine (root chakra), between the genitals and naval (sacral chakra), a couple of inches above the naval (solar plexus chakra), the centre of the chest (heart chakra), middle of the neck (throat chakra), just above the brow area (third-eye chakra), and top of the head (crown chakra).
When our main 7 chakras are open and balanced, energy can flow freely through our bodies and minds. When any of these energy centres are blocked, it leads to stagnation and can contribute to a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. One of the most effective ways to relieve the symptoms of blocked chakras is through the powerful healing that is Reiki.
