Natural Life Force Energy
The energy itself is given different names according to the culture : Prana, Chi, Ki, but all describe this life force energy or universal energy which flows through us.
Most people cannot see this energy body but we can feel it.
It surrounds, penetrates and radiates out from every cell of our physical body.
Traditionally in Reiki the focus is on working with the HARA, an area integral to Japanese and Chinese energy work from martial arts to Buddist meditation by working from the hara we become grounded and centred, essential before working with animals.
In our modern world we tend to live in our heads, and often find it difficult to be fully present in the moment.
There are 3 aspects of the Energy Body that are relevant to our work with Reiki - the aura, the chakras and the meridian system.When we feel that an area or specific points in the body draw more Reiki or feel differently to other areas this can be related to specific chakras or points on a meridian.
Knowledge of the Energy Body is useful but not absolutely necessary, to work effectively with Reiki.
