Reiki has been regarded as a healing practice that focuses on energetically alleviating congestion throughout the body. Ki is the energy that flows within each of us and is responsible for creating healthy conditions. The flow of Ki can be impacted by the quality of one's thoughts and feelings. All negative or dis-harmonious thoughts or feelings can cause a disruption and ultimately lead to physical ailments within the body.
It must be understood that negative thoughts are not just simply in the brain, but also collect in various locations throughout the body. Congestion of Ki occurs at these locations where negative thoughts have collected and are usually the strongest because we are not consciously aware of their existence. Thus making it difficult to rid the body and eliminate their impact.
Reiki is guided by energy and knows exactly where to go and how to respond to the restrictions in the flow of Ki. As it breaks apart the congestion, organs and tissues can once again be nourished and begin functioning in a healthy and balanced manner.
