What is Reiki and Chakra?

How are these used? Why are they important?

What is Reiki?

The term “REIKI” literally means universal life force energy. It is a system of healing and a form of Energy Medicine. It is a passive healing system that works to clear blockages or disharmonic frequencies from the physical body. Results can be dramatic. The therapy does not target a symptom. Rather, it works to restore health and balance on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. It is an effective system for self-healing and can also be used to energize and cleanse food, water, situations, the past and the future. As you can imagine, the number of ways that Reiki can be used is endless!

What is a Chakra?

The word chakra is the English version of the Sanskrit work chakra meaning wheel or disc. The origin of the chakra system goes back to the Vedas, meaning “Knowledge” a series of hymns that are the oldest written tradition in India. Chakras are also called lotuses, symbolizing the unfolding of flower petals, which, metaphorically describes the opening of a chakra.
Chakras are energy centers which act as funnels, they spin in a clockwise direction collecting energy from the universal energy field and metabolize it for use by our bodies. They assimilate energy entering and transmit energy out
On a physical level chakras correspond to nerve ganglia, where there is a high degree of nerve activity, and also to glands in the endocrine system. The chakra system is the central processing center for every aspect of our being, blockage or other energetic dysfunction usually gives rise to disorders in the body, mind and spirit. If you hold negative thoughts your chakras become dirty with dense dark energy, resulting in feelings of lethargy, fatigue and apparent blocks in ones creativity and flow of abundance. Chakras shrink in size when we hold fearful thoughts about the issues corresponding to them. A block may be the result of an emotional trauma, stress, fear, worry, unhappiness, anger, guilt, injury or poor diet.
