SUMMARY: HOW REIKI WORKS IN A NUTSHELL
Reiki and other energy healing practitioners understand that an illness is an expression of some part of the body-mind-spirit complex that is not functioning well energetically. Reiki works by helping release energy imbalances or disturbances in the energy field that could eventually lead to or has already led to a physical, emotional, or mental problem. In the event illness has manifested in the physical body, the intention of the Reiki practitioner is to facilitate self-healing by clearing blockages and congestion, improving deficient or excessive energy disturbances, and correcting imbalances in the electromagnetic circuits of the body that prevent the free flow of vital life force energy. By clearing the energy field or energizing the system with Reiki, optimal conditions for self-healing are restored. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that the person's own connection to soul is ultimately in charge of all healing.
