It’s sad that we live in a world where if something cannot be proven by science then it means it does not exist. Bacteria and viruses existed long before science knew they were there. Likewise for X-rays, microwaves, other galaxies and the Earth being round. Back before science could prove these things the few who wondered and believed were laughed at.
Everything including us humans and the universe is made up of energy and not matter. At the deepest level we are the universe in the human form. We are made up of atoms. Chemical reactions within our body, besides liberating energy and producing heat are emitting small numbers of atoms, elementary particles of light. Scientists says that if you look deep into how atoms work, you will see there are only energy waves there. Atoms are invisible force fields much like a mini tornado, which emit waves of electrical energy and light. Atoms are constantly absorbing and emitting energy and light even when we are at rest.
So, we are all everything, when you break us down to the molecular level, we are made up of emit and absorb energy! It is this energy which the Chinese called as “Chi”, the Japanese call “Ki” and in India it is called “Prana”, that is used in healing. Reiki means universal life Energy. It is defined as being that power which acts and lives in all created matter. “Rei” as it is used in Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God or the Higher Self. Reiki can thus be defined as the spiritually guided Life force Energy. While “Ki” the vital life force energy which flows through all living beings and is used in yoga and meditative breathing exercises called Pranayam.
Modern medicine is familiar with body’s energy field and uses both diagnostically and for treatment. The fields most commonly documented are the bio-electrical field around the heart, the brain and the muscles. These are best known by the technologies that measure them, the Electrocardiogram, the Electroencephalogram and the Electromyogram. Science has also identified field around the retina, the nerves, some organs , such as ovaries and some glands. Doctors are now using some forms of energy, such as vibrational sound energy, light and lasers. For example, pulses of infrared light can treat depression by stimulating a patient’s vagus nerve and static magnets are being used to alleviate pain or breakup scar tissue. So when Energy healers talk about healing by interacting with the energy field, they are talking about something that’s measurable, well documented and increasingly becoming part of mainstream.
Mystics of many traditions worldwide throughout history have described universal fields of intelligent life force energy in their creation, myths and used various forms of this energy in their healing practices. Reiki energy treatments follow in this long and honored worldwide tradition. in the old testament, Gods first words on the day one of creation were, “Let there be light”. The Greek myth of the Goddess Gaia begins with the image of the Goddess whirling out of darkness, wrapped in flowing white veils. Hindus view the original creation as swirls forming in a sea of milk, a metaphorical representation of an energy field, precipitating matter from the void. The kabbalah, the Jewish mystical tradition that began around 538 B.C refers to this same primal sea of energy as the astral light or Ain Soph Aur. The idea of a universal field of energy had been accepted by every ancient culture on earth called Spirit, Prana, Chi, Aether or some other name. it was believed in many religions traditions to be the primordial energy that sparks and sustains all creations.
The universe is believed to have sprung into existence from a single point. The single point expanded to become the universe, so everything still remains a part of that singularity. That single point contains the infinite potential of the universe. The Hindu term “BRAMHAND” has the same meaning, God unmanifest, the transcendent reality that is the source of all being in this universe, the single point form which “All that is” originated including space and time. Our universe has been compared to foam floating on a sea of Zero point field energy, an energy believed to exist at every point in the universe, even in empty space. The so called empty space between the galaxy is not empty but is composed of energy which is the Zero point energy, the infinite energy that originates from beyond the Universe. The source of Reiki energy originates in what some modern scientists describe as the zero point field energy, field of low-level energy filling the seemingly empty vastness of deep space.Scientists are beginning to see the zero point field as a limitless source of energy and even as the source of all matter in the Universe. The zero point field is composed of visible and invisible light of different wavelengths. The zero Point field, or Universal Life Force energy also provides as medium through which energy in the form of distance healing can be delivered instantaneously to remote recipients. If the universe is holographic, then universal Life Force Energy can be transmitted instantaneously across time and space. This could explain the mechanism behind such phenomena as distance healing treatments and the power of prayer to heal physical illness. Energy healing treatments help to restore a balanced flow of life force universal energy or Ki, through all parts of the human energy field, and throughout the physical body.
