What is the first thing you do when you hurt yourself? Right, you put your hand on it. You instinctively know that your body went out of balance and you quickly worked to restore that healthy balance by sending your own energy, through your hands, into the area. So imagine a high vibrational energy flowing through your hands that aligns, restores and refurbishes the physical energy of the body, removing blocks and giving your body the energy it needs to do what it does best - self- heal. Reiki also balances your mental and spiritual energy - gently pushing through blocks, realigning the chakras, allowing you to feel centered, grounded and in balance. What a change from how we usually experience our hectic lives!
After reading what I just wrote, I realized that I used the word "energy" 5 times! It's not a word most people use much, but wow, we sure can feel it. Strange to feel something so strongly but not be able to see it, but I guess if we've accepted flipping on a light switch to light up a room we can accept the fact that energy is all around us and that Reiki just flows through a person, rather than an electric wire conduit!
