Reiki is a gentle hands-on noninvasive healing art. Many medical publications are now sharing the findings from researchers who scientifically prove the benefits of Reiki. Energy medicine is the new frontier in Western Medicine, though we have been using it for thousands of years.
What is the first thing we do when we get hurt? We place our hand on the injury. People with headaches often reach up and hold their head. A person with a backache often reaches their hand around to their back. When a child falls and skins their knee, they cup their hand over their injured knee.
We instinctively use hands-on healing to aid in our own healing. We also instinctively reach out with our hands to others to help ease and comfort them when they are hurting or in distress. We hug and hold one another.
When you join the flames of two candles together, the flame becomes one, burning brighter and higher. When you hold hands with someone, the coldest hand becomes warmer from the energy emitted from the warmer hand. A drained car battery charges from the energy of another car battery when linked with cables.
Higher energy lends itself to helping lower energy rise to comfort, balance, and heal.
Our bodies are energy. Everything around us is energy. We draw energy in order to live through what we eat, drink and breathe. Energy creates energy. Medical science can now measure how energy lends itself to the healing arts.
Dr. Oz promotes the practice of Reiki as healing energy:
“Let me show you why I think energy has been overlooked,” Oz continued, turning to reveal a large microscopic image. “This is an image of a cell. And it’s beautiful, isn’t it? You see that cell there, and it looks colorful, and look at the blue pattern on the outside. That’s the membrane of the cell. That blue area on the outside differentiates life. Because it separates no energy on the outside from energy that’s present on the inside. So if you think about it in that way, if the membrane of a cell keeps an energy balance between inside and outside, which is what defines life, if we put those cells together, into an organ, shouldn’t the organ have energy? And if you put those organs into a body, shouldn’t our bodies have energy? And so many of the ailments that we suffer from can be treated through energy therapies, which will become become much more prevalent over the next few years.”
Lisa Oz (Dr. Oz’s wife) is a Reiki Master. She’s been quoted as saying: “The next wave of medical advances will be when we come to recognize the body as an energetic system.”
Throughout most religions and philosophies, the same themes are shared. Peace and happiness are good for us. These emotions are measured at higher frequencies than sadness and despair. The higher the vibration, the healthier we are.
When we share Reiki, we raise our vibration. Raising our vibration aids in releasing stress and tension. Releasing stress and tension empowers healing and restoration to take place.
