Reiki and the Energy System

By  |  0 Comments


More and more people are becoming aware of the necessity of keeping their energy bodies in good holistic health, in addition to their physical bodies. Yoga, which supports the balance of the physical body and the chakra system, is now a common practice in society. Reiki, once thought of as an alternative practice, is now known as a complimentary therapy that acts as a preventative to disease to support holistic health and well being. Just as we keep our physical body clean, so too must we do the same for our energy body. A Reiki treatment is like a shower for the energy body.



The chakras are cone shaped vortices of energy that spin in a clockwise direction. They act as energy transmitters by drawing in universal energy and help to distribute that energy around the entire body to the organs, muscles, glands, blood, bones, tissue, etc… via the meridians. The meridians are like energy gridlines around the body.

The aura acts as a protective shell of energy around our physical body where a plethora of information is stored. If you walk into a room you can often get a strong sense of what the energy in that room is like – you either like the feel of it or you don’t – this information is being decoded by your auric field and then interpreted as a good or bad feeling by your brain.

There are seven main chakras located at the front of the body that govern it, however there are hundreds of chakras all over the body; in the palms of the hands, on the back, and on the head, to name a few.

Of these seven main chakras, each one has its own distinctive colour, location and what it helps to balance physically and emotionally, when this chakra is in alignment. If you are experiencing the opposite of what is described emotionally then that particular chakra could be blocked or torn and it is suggested that you have a chakra cleanse and alignment to bring it into balance.
