What is Reiki?

When you think of a spa what things come into your mind?

For me it is massage therapy, facials, saunas, a place to go to relax and be rejuvenated. For the past eight months I have been meditating and learning about other ways to lead a better life naturally. Recently I have developed an interest in spas and the different types of services they have. I have also been viewing web sites of various spas around the world.

Energy Force
The world in which we live is full of energy. Everything in our world contains energy, trees, rocks, water, and even us. We have contained within our selves a life force energy which many of us have been taught to ignore. If we are aware of it we have been taught that it is not Biblical. This is not true this life energy force is what connects us to God, the Creator, or the universe however, you see it.

Tapping into Our Energy Force
As of lately I have been learning different ways of tapping into my energy force.There are various ways to do this, but I want to focus on one I just learned about.  A webinar I listened to this morning talked about Reiki? What is this? Never heard of it, so of course I put on my research fingers to find out more.

 What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese hands on method which Mikao Usui developed in 1920, pronounced raykey. The word steams from two words however, you will find different meanings for these two words. For this post we are going to use rei as meaning higher power and for ki life force energy.

Inside the body are energy channels also known as charkas. Most people have one or more blocks within their charkas. Each charka leads to multiple parts of the body, both external and internal. By placing the hands over the various charkas the energy force is released from the charkas in the palm of the hands sending healing energy where it is needed. Once one has had a treatment done by another they can then perform the healing process on their own.

Using Crystals
Using crystals along with reiki serves to do two things. The first is to remove negative energy the second is to replace positive energy. Each charka is associated with a color the crystal being used needs to coincide with the color of the charka.

What the Bible Says
Revelation 21:18-20 And the building of the wall of it was jasper: and the city was pure gold,like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony' the fourth, and emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

Isaiah 54:11-12 O tho afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold I will lay they stones with fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. I will make they windows of agates, and they gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.

Exodus 28:17-20 And thou shalt set in it setting of stones, even four rows of stones; the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row. The second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond: the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst. The fourth row a beryl, and onyx, and a jasper:they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.

Lastly John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also: and greater works than these shall he do: because I go unto my Father.

Do you use a method to balance your life force energy?
