Someone once shared that describing Reiki to someone who has not come into contact with Reiki is like describing the wind to someone who has never experienced wind. We can’t actually see the wind…but
- We can feel and see the effects of the wind when our hair is upset or leaves are scattered about,
- We can feel its warmth or coolness against our skin when a breeze is gentle,
- We can experience its strength when a hurricane leaves destruction in its path,
We’re ok in accepting the wind as an ‘external force’ that we feel outside our bodies.
In contrast, Reiki could conceivably be compared to wind internalized. It’s with my hands that I move the internal winds, or energy, within you to clear blockages and open the paths to let the energy move smoothly to bring about healing.
