Reiki is a Japanese spiritual healing practice that is used to promote balance throughout the human system. It is made up of two Japanese words; ‘Rei’ meaning “God’s wisdom or the Higher Power” and ‘Ki’ which is “life force energy”. It is commonly translated from the Japanese as “universal life energy”. It treats the whole person including their emotions, their body, mind and spirit.
Reiki is a healing technique that is non-invasive, gentle yet powerful. Reiki does not involve physical manipulation or the ingestion or application of any substances, but works with the subtle vibrational field thought to surround and penetrate the body. If one’s life force energy is low, then there is likely to get sick or feel stress. When it is high, the feeling happy and having good health is possible to pervade.
Reiki is natural, safe and is great for treating all kinds of physical illnesses. It heals the body by going deeply into the cause of the illness. This eliminates the effects of the imbalance and the emotional issues that go with the illness such as depression, fears, and phobias.
Reiki is practiced together with traditional medicine because of its beneficial effect in treating side effects, thus promoting faster recovery as it activates the recipient’s own healing process.
Besides the properties of healing physical ailments, Reiki is an excellent spiritual and emotional healer because of its power of cleansing negative energy and help in healing relationships. It can calm nervous tensions and aid in pain management, as in pains during pregnancy and actual labor.
Some Reiki practitioners find that Reiki is different from other energy therapies and is actually closer to meditation. As in any form of meditation techniques, a timer is used but the last thing a practitioner should do is to keep an eye on the clock. This will defeat the very essence of meditation which is to focus on one’s inner self, while concentrating on the in and out flow of the breathing process. For this reason, a meditation timer is used. It is quiet, unobtrusive device that is set to the duration of time the meditation should last. It is similar with most timers except that it prevents its user from stealing glances at the clock that can disrupt meditation since it does not give off a ticking sound.
The Reiki timer is a pyramidal shaped interval clock that will allow the user to focus on your Reiki, meditation, yoga, or therapy session while the gentle gong helps to regulate the session without having to watch the clock. The aesthetics of the Reiki timer adds relaxation and harmony to the atmosphere of the room where it is practiced in. Its pyramidal shape brings its own stability and specific energy and is built to the perfect proportions of the Kheops Pyramid of Gizah, considered by Feng Shui specialists to be a powerful source of energy, stability, and balance.
The Reiki timer is easy to use. Simply set the desired gong interval and press the On/Off button. The gong will ring once after 10 seconds allowing you to prepare for the start of your session. The gong will ring again at the set interval and repeat with a single gong at that interval until the On/Off button is pressed or for up to 90 minutes.
