What is Reiki?

At the end of the 19th century a healing method was rediscovered in ancient Sanskrit texts by a Japanese scholar, Mikaomi Usui. He called it Reiki (pronounced ray-key) a Japanese word meaning "Universal Life Energy"  an energy which is all around us and flows through all living things.
Reiki has no association with religion, faith or belief systems, and can be received by anyone who is willing to try a alternative for their well being. It is a safe, gentle, non intrusive hands-on ( palm healing ) and hands off healing technique for use on everyone including animals.

Reiki is a whole body treatment.  Reiki works on different levels the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual enhancing everything in life. ... . We say in Reiki that problems arise because of blockages caused by negative thinking, lifestyle choices, ongoing treatments and everyday stresses. Reiki does not differentiate between the levels of the person but instead perceives the whole body as working as one entity. Reiki recognises that it is not our problems that need healing but our whole self. In healing we believe that every cell of the body contains universal energy. This energy can become disordered or out of balance. Reiki re balances this energy and once again creates order in the energy of the cells. Reiki works by clearing away the blockages, on whichever level they appear, that prevent us from being whole and reinforces the body’s natural ability to heal itself at all levels, It helps you find true peace of mind and brings positivity to help you cope with life’s daily challenges.
What is Seichem?
Seichem ( pronounced say-keem ) works in the same way as Reiki, with hands placed on the body, but in addition hands may be working in the aura which surrounds the body.

Seichem is based on and originated from the same source as Reiki. Tera-Mai Seichem was given to Kathleen Milner by Buddha and through Tera-Mai Seichem we call forth and channel all four elements: Earth, Fire, Water and Air.


REIKI – is Earth Element, this can be experienced as hot or cold characteristics of the earth energy are those of grounding and foundation. Reiki is fundamental to all other elemental healing rays. Reiki harmonises and re-balances the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.


SAKARA – Fire Element, this can be experienced as tingling, electrical impulses. Sakara works in the aura, burns through and transforms blockages in the physical, mental, emotional and other spiritual bodies. Sakara grounds all other healing energy.


SOPHI-EL – Water Element, This can be experienced as cool. Sophi-El reaches deep into the core within the emotional bodies, it opens the heart to receive love and feel compassion, aiding emotional and sexual healing.


AIR / ANGELIC LIGHT – is a two-fold ray, working with both the element Air and the Angelic realm. This can be experienced as cool wafting breezes. Air expresses the qualities of communication, enhancing the healer’s perception and facilitating an improved spiritual link between the client, healer and Ascended Master. It enhances the power of the third eye. Healer & healee often experience the presence of Angels.
