Mantras + Affirmations
Reading the principles in the morning and evening may be helpful for focusing on these ideals. You could also carry them with you or have them visible in a place you visit often.
The 5 principles will have different meanings for everyone. You may wish to meditate on the principles to see what they mean for you.
You can also focus on the energy of each principle and what it feels like. Holding the intention is more important than the semantics of the principles.
Reiki is universal life force energy.
You can apply simple Reiki healing techniques to your finances, relationships, and past unresolved issues. Reiki can also be applied to support your career and even upcoming events like a job interview.
All living things are made up of energy. Our bodies are in a constant state of maintaining balance, Reiki is the energy that connects our higher self with everything around us.
Many disciplines have been developed to help develop and balance this energy, also known as ki, chi, prana, soul. Reiki, meditation, yoga, and feng shui are just a few of the many ways individuals can enhance the flow of this energy.
Reiki is not only a tool for physical healing.
Reiki helps to support mental and spiritual growth as well. Practicing Reiki consistently allows for a more fulfilling life as those who practice become more capable of seeing synchronicities in life. They are also able to let their lives be in the energetic flow.

We are all born with the power to heal ourselves.
Many different people are drawn to Reiki. They may seek Reiki to heal physical imbalances or when searching for answers to life’s mysteries.
Regardless of your reasons for pursuing Reiki, you will benefit most from this healing modality by being open to it. Fears and doubts can create blocks that prevents a clear view of what is possible.
When you are ready to work with the universal life force, it is key to realize as with every profession, there is a need to first practice and master the skills associated with healing.
With time, practice and experience you can master the skills and techniques.
Treat the early months as a learning experience as this allows you the time you need to develop your confidence and skills. The more you work with Reiki, the more intuitive you will become. You allow your vibration to be raised and will experience a more balanced lifestyle.
How does Reiki energy actually work?
In a Reiki session, the energy drawn in by the recipient is done so through the practitioner’s hands. The energy will go where it is needed and in the order that the recipient’s body, mind, and spirit determines. It’s ideal to work with a practitioner you feel called to work with.
Although Reiki has traditionally been used as a healing system, it is also extremely effective as a way to help individuals increase awareness, insight, wisdom and personal growth.
Our bodies are energetic in nature.
Our bones resonate at lower frequencies while our blood, thoughts etc. vibrate at higher frequencies. In Eastern traditions this magnetic pulse, or biomagnetic field, is known as Ki or Prana.
When a Reiki practitioner is performing a healing session, the energy that emanates from their hands produce a larger bio magnetic reading (7-10 Hz – Theta and Alpha range) than a non-practitioner. These frequencies are associated with physical healing.
What are common results from Reiki?
Common observations from Reiki clients after a session include: contentment, relaxation, decreased feelings of stress, fear and anxiety as well as a reduction of physical illnesses and persistent conditions. There are numerous case studies and research verifying the effects of Reiki sessions.
