People who practice various forms of meditation, over a period of time realize that there are certain subtle energies within and around the body. There is correspondence between these energies and one's health. Ancient knowledge tells us about 'life force energy' and that this energy is said to be responsible for an individual's health. This 'life force energy' needs to flow freely through the human body for a person to be healthy. If there is blockage in the flow or if there is an imbalance in the energy then it might lead to health hazards. The presence of 'life force energy' and the need for it to flow freely through the body is essential for your body to be healthy. This fact has been acknowledged by a number of scientists and doctors from all over the world. Our body is made up of physical elements and subtle energy systems. It is through these energy systems that 'life force energy' flows inside us. The energy system has energy bodies that surround our body and help us feel and think clearly. These energy bodies have energy centers called charkas. These act as regulators and allow life energy to flow through the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical domains of our body. There are energy meridians and Nadas that are believed to be present throughout our body. These meridians carry life force energy all over our physical body; this nourishes and helps in balancing systems and functions too.
The 'life force energy' is believed to be the factor behind our good health. Once this flow is disrupted there are chances of your body not reacting accordingly, which will ultimately lead to poor health. Stress is one of the major reasons for irregular flow of energy. Stress can be caused by conflicting thoughts and emotions, working for long hours, irregular sleep, bad eating habits and emotional imbalance. Thus, this interferes with the free flow of energy in your body. Being under stress for a long time blocks the body's innate ability to regenerate and defend itself. If a person is stressed for a long period of time it might manifest itself as a minor or major health disorder. This can range from minor skin diseases to even heart disorders.
Healing through Reiki involves using one's palm to transmit subtle energy to the affected person's energy system. This energy can be transmitted to oneself as well as to others. Through this process stress is reduced and energy balance is restored. Reiki healing gently unblocks meridians, nadas and charkas, allowing energy to flow through the body freely. Ultimately the person feels relaxed and calmed. It is a great remedy for people with anxiety disorders. These are the few advantages of Reiki:
