The system of Reiki is not a manipulative one. Energy knows it’s true path. Reiki is not different to from one’s energy; there is no cut-off point or disconnection. Existence is a continuous flow of energy without beginning or end. The recipient of Reiki draws on more of the same energy, building personal resources and clearing energy, balancing the body at all levels. The sense of utter relaxation is, in fact, a healing state. It is often likened to being in the womb.  There is consciousness, yet you feel enclosed and safe from outside influences. It is in this state that you may glean spiritual guidance.
