Ive been studying reiki since 2006 on and off. I read as much as I can and have a lovley reiki client base. It wasnt until I started practicing qi gong that I really began to feel the benefits of Reiki. The energy we all have within us which is effected everyday by our thoughts, food, environment and the people around us. Our much more sedentary lifestyle causes energy blockages within our body which leads to Chi—also known as prana, the warm current, Kundalini power, or the electromagnetic life force to get blocked.
“When was the last time you marveled at the simple fact that you are breathing and your heart is beating?” —Mantak Chia
The ancient Taoist masters spent a lot of time observing the flow of this “chi,” which they recognized as the breath of the universe that moves through everything. Chi is the glue between our body, mind, and spirit, the link between our perception of the inner and outer worlds. Living close to nature with few of the distractions of modern civilization, the Taoists were able to map in fine detail the workings of the chi energy both within the human body and in the world at large.
