Reiki as an Alternative Healing Process
Maybe you are not familiar with Reiki, don't worry, you are not alone. To start with, Reiki is associated with natural holistic healing or a healing where pharmaceutical drugs and medical surgeries are just an alternative in case the system of holistic healing fails. Reiki is an early form of energy healing in which a participant serves as a channel for Universal Life Force. The Reiki participant opens himself/herself as a channel for an energy that comes from a higher source to aid healing or correct a person's aura. This is believed to be beneficial for the body, mind, and soul or the Indian system called chakra. Reiki got its principle from the thought that the universe has an energy that gives form, structure, and health.
This force is also called Chi by the Chinese martial artists. It is said to be capable of healing anything because its energy comes from the basic fundamental levels of reality. It also teaches that the energy flows are affected by the thoughts of a Reiki practitioner. For instance, if he/she thinks of negative things, this will manifest diseases and unfortunate events. If he/she thinks the other way around, good health and fortune will come.
These are facilitated to help the patients believe whatever positive thoughts they have in their minds. To have an idea of how the healing process is conducted, here is an example: usually, the healer performs some hand rituals and eventually places it over a sick person. Then he will perform some massage from mid hair, and he will make some scooping actions like he is smoothing a bedspread. This movement is intent to correct the person's aura. There are other Reiki masters that just place their hands directly to the patient and keeping it there as long as necessary. They are also capable of healing from a distance, or also called Reiki remote healing. The healer will just ask for an object that will represent the ill person and they will treat that said object just like he is treating the person. They are also capable of healing and blessing objects such as cars and computers. Reiki is definitely a different healing process compared with others. It is up to you if you will believe in their methods.
