What is Reiki?

The word “Reiki” is made up of two separate words. “Rei”, which means Universal and “Ki” which means energy or life force. The most common definition of Reiki is therefore “Universal life energy”. Simply speaking, about the process of learning Reiki, called initiation or attunement – it is a process to open up the energy channels in your body by a Reiki Specialist/Master. Once initiated, you remain attuned for the rest of your life. Reiki healing is a process of being connected to the Reiki energy.

Using Reiki session is simply a matter of awareness of Reiki and the expression of it, is being Reiki. Reiki is not a religion; rather it is a spiritual practice, which complements any faith as a hands-on healing practice. A practitioner gains access to the specific frequencies of energy used in Reiki by receiving a series of attunements from a Reiki Master.

During an attunement, different energy centers (chakras) and energy channels are opened and strengthened, which enables the Reiki practitioner to channel energy through their hands. Reiki healing is a process of transferring either by placing your hands on the person requiring energy or by distance work.

Just for today I will avoid anger
Just for today I will be grateful and humble
Just for today I will respect all living beings,
Just for today I will do my work with appreciation
Just for today I will be kind to all
Just for today I will be honest

You will be normally lying comfortably fully clothed whilst Orla works on your body either directly hands on, or as your energy requires of your body in your energy field.

As a Reiki Specialist, Orla can use the distance symbol that can travel over space and time. It can facilitate change from your past by releasing blocked energy and equally can be used to bridge the distance between Reiki therapist and receiver over a distance. When Orla first started practicing Reiki in 2003 she used to regularly treat friends in Australia and England when situated here in Ireland.

Sending distance Reiki works according to an ancient principle called the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which translates that we are all connected, as we are all made of energy and part of a larger whole. Quantum science has now gone on to prove this ancient principle.

Distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time and permission should be given from the recipient. What a recipient may notice whilst receiving a distant treatment, a deep sense of relaxation, an enjoyable altered state, tingling or heat, sometimes an increase in pain or just a decrease in pain.   

Known Reiki benefits are increased relaxation, happiness, stress management, less anxiety and lifting of mild depression and increased healing post operative are amongst some of the proven benefits. As we are all made up of universal life force Reiki energy can be a channel of energy for the benefit of others.
