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 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 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 can be transferred either by placing your hands on the person requiring energy or by distance work.
I find Orla to be honest, trustworthy, authentic and truly spiritual, attributes that I would find essential in a teacher on my own spiritual path. She is lots of fun too.
