Reiki – What is it and how it benefits us?



Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing technique which was rediscovered in the mid-1800's by a Japanese born Buddhist monk, Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is an alternative healing therapy/medicine that can be used alone or with medical treatments. Reiki is derived from two Japanese words: rei and Ki. Rei means "higher power" or "spiritual power”. Ki means "energy or life force”. Putting together, Reiki can be translated as "spiritual life force energy".



It is basically energy healing technique that uses “hands-on” (in person) and also “hands-off “healing (distance healing). 






This technique can assist in relieving or reducing pain and discomfort by balancing the body's energy centers, more commonly known as the chakras.






However, every lightworker or healer has their own perception and explanation about Reiki as per their divine connection and experiences with reiki healing technique. In simple words, Reiki is:

Reiki is universal energy that surfaces its way through galaxies in our hearts.
It is also known as the universal love energy.
Nothing better than to heal yourself and others through an energy that is based on love.
We all know we are made up of energy. Sometimes this energy gets stagnant and creates blockages in our bodies and auric fields that manifest as dis-ease in our lives (disease is itself a discomfort).
It may be in the form of a physical issue, mental issue or emotional issue.
Reiki energy is the basic essence of Divinity, and unblocks and clears all this stagnant energy in your body & another’s.

It helps in rejuvenating and recalibrating your body to the purest form of light encoding (we all are a part of this divine light).

According to renowned healer Angie Buxton-King “We have a physical body surrounded by an energy field. When we become unwell physically, emotionally or mentally this has an unbalancing effect on our energy field. A healer channels energy through his or her hands and by the gentle placement of hands on the physical body (or just above it) facilitates the rebalancing of the energy field which in turn may ease symptoms physically, mentally and emotionally”.

According to Dr. Mikao Usui, we must follow the below 5 main principles of Reiki in our life to be benefitted by the positive effects of Reiki, try these and you will definitely see the difference in yourself:
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not be angry. 
Just for today, I will be grateful. 
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.

Following are the issues that can be assisted with Reiki:
Anxiety management
As a pain management strategy
As a supportive measure through unpleasant and/or painful procedures e.g. lumbar puncture, bone marrow aspirate, liver biopsy
To reduce chemotherapy/radiotherapy gut disturbance
To engender a sense of control
To enhance compliance with treatment regimens
To enhance coping
To enhance the immune response
To improve quality of life
To increase self-esteem & confidence
To assist the patient in the dying process
The treatment of the above issues depends on the disease and the patient’s receptivity to the healing process. Every patient has separate causes or reasons for disease and accordingly the treatment is done. However, Reiki is not a replacement for Medical Science treatments, it is a support system to enhance the treatment to heal or recover the patient from disease or pain. Reiki can, however, be combined with other healing methods such as Crystals and other modalities too.


There are many different aspects of Reiki, however, we will discuss them later sometime.

Hope this will bring awareness to the concept of Reiki and its benefits.

Love, Light, Peace, Gratitude, and Blessings to all…!!!

Are You Also Getting Trapped in Spiritual Materialism?

New to this term Spiritual Materialism or wondering why I have even used this term with “Spiritual”?

You will certainly know why going ahead in this article. It is important being a spiritual healer or Lightworker to understand the difference in actually serving the purpose we are here for and the difference when we silently slip away from our track and get trapped in “Spiritual Materialism”.
I decided to write my views on this very emerging concept of “Spiritual Materialism” when I read about some Shamballa percepts. During my readings it is then when I came to know about the Buddhist monk Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche who founded and established many Buddhist and Shamballa teaching centers in the west already.
It is important for all of us to understand it as we are ascending everyday into spirituality and trying to serve our purpose along with being a closer victim to spiritual materialism too.
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche introduced techniques of Mindfulness, compassion & love and being…

Healing Pets

In my last article Do Animals Need Healing? Yes, Indeed! We discussed the emerging concept of Animal Healing and why is it sometimes important to heal pets. This article throws light on the Pets from Energy beings point of view and Energy System of pets. So, do animals also have Aura & Chakras? Yes, they do have. Don't be surprised as this is what we are going to discuss in this article.
To understand more on Aura and Chakras you may visit my previous articles Our Existence beyond the Physical Body and Chakra – The Energy Vortexes as they work almost same as human Aura and Chakras in animals too. So, coming back to the point of discussion about our beloved pets, like we humans have an electromagnetic field around us, animals also have this field around them and it is this field which is highly sensitive for animals as like babies they can sense your intentions and feelings instantly and react to it.
It is necessary that as we keep ourselves protected and healed, we keep our pets …

Karmic Balance (Balancing your Karmas)

I am writing this article on request of my viewers and clients. I dedicate the inspiration for this topic or article to my closest friend and guide “Deepika”.

To start with let’s recall few excerpts from my previous article on “The Karma Story” where we discussed karmic relationships and how to break this cycle.

If we look around us today almost everyone has hardships, some people are not happy, some are struggling in relationships, jobs or finances. Most of the time when we visit a priest or an astrologer or any holistic practitioner, they often advise us to balance our karmas through certain remedies or advice, but, we often fail to understand its actual meaning and concept.
Many of us might not be completely aware of this term “Karma” and “Balance the Karmas”.
Whatever, the information I am going to share in this article is based on kind of issues as a holistic practitioner we came across or being collated from the experiences and people around, in addition to the spiritual practice…
