Anyone, anywhere can use this system. A child, as you can see by this photo, can grasp the simplicity of meditation practices used within Reiki and will respond to hands on healing naturally -receiving and offering it without self consciousness when a situation arises.It is the most natural thing in life to want to live well and be with others in harmony and that is why children respond to it so easily.
The system of Reiki encourages such a lifestyle. For adults it is the task of remembering these qualities that we must endeavour to recall through practice.Our mind and body knows how to help itself - the system of Reiki supports that innate healing process.
Therefore by working with Reiki we can see that it speeds up the natural healing process. For these reasons it was taught in Japan in the late 1920s as first aid to the military who, though they were technologically advancing rapidly, had a health system that was antiquated.One of the most fundamental concepts of Reiki is that our bodies draw on more energy to clear stagnant energy. We cannot say exactly why this happens and with the system of Reiki it is not necessary to do so.
This is not a system that diagnoses - all we need to know is that our bodies will draw on the energy and take it where it is needed. If the rational mind gets in the way by diagnosing we are limiting the healing possibilities of spiritual energy.Below we have listed some of the possible benefits of the system to give you an idea as to how the energy can affect your life.Physical.* Reiki works on all chronic and acute illnesses, including serious problems like heart disease and cancer as well as skin problems, flu, fatigue, headaches, back pain etc.
