The word Reiki, pronounced Ray-Key is a compound of two Japanese words Rei, meaning universal or spiritual consciousness, and Ki meaning life energy or vital/universal life force. This Ki is the same as the Chi in the Chinese practice of Tai Chi and Chi Gong.
Reiki is a technique for harmonizing and balancing natural energy. This gentle yet powerful form of energy healing can restore, balance, and align our energy centers (see chakras) in both the physical and auric bodies.
Energy healing has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, this energy from the universe is routinely utilized to assist in healing through therapeutic touch and other hands-on techniques. As a natural healing system, Reiki offers a safe, non-invasive treatment, often used alongside other complementary therapies or conventional medicine. Reiki is not a religion and is not religious in nature, but can be used as a powerful tool for personal development and spiritual enlightenment.
Healing with Reiki involves the practitioner placing hands on the chakras, or on the area of discomfort, to transmit subtle energy into the affected person’s energy system. This process fosters the reduction of stress, allowing the energy balance to become restored. As well as helping to heal many physical ailments, Reiki can also promote the transformation of any negative mental habits, turning these thoughts into more positive and productive thought patterns.
Infusing natural gemstones creates a very powerful combination. The innate healing properties of crystals and gemstones (see Why Natural Gemstones) amplify the effect of the Reiki energy. In turn, the Reiki energy works on crystals and gemstones to further enhance their natural healing abilities. All of our natural gemstone jewelry and creations are infused with calming Reiki energy to heal body, mind, and spirit.
Some of the benefits of Reiki-infused gemstones are:
- Emotional and spiritual balance
- Overall health and well-being
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced depression
- Improved sleep
- Improved digestion
- Enhanced well-being
- Stronger self-esteem
- Heightened intuition
