What is Reiki or Energy Work?
Reiki is an energy system that came originally from Japan. Reiki as an energy system is universal, but can be taught or practiced in different ways. I learned and trained under Masters Kathy Glover Scott (Reiki Ottawa) and Samantha Smith (Ottawa Valley Reiki) and was taught the Usui Reiki system. Reiki to me means divine energy that assists in releasing energy blockages - spiritually, mentally, physically or psychic blocks. It is a blessing and a knowing we are all part of the same universal energy and anything is infinitely possible. Reiki or energy work helps release these blockages, with the gentle laying of hands or working in the aura field for those uncomfortable with light touch.
Reiki is gentle and nurturing. In this life where everything seems so frenetic and rushed, it's good to nurture the soul as well as the body. When we are in balance in mind, body and soul amazing things happen in life because we are able to see the blessings in our lives and be grateful for even the smallest of things.
Always remember that we are a soul/spiritual being having a human experience.
