Reiki by Ajit Upadhyay

Reiki is an ancient form of healing rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui.

The word Reiki in Japanese means Life Force Energy, which in hindu philosophy is called Prana. The flow of reiki energy is nothing but the flow of Prana or Life force energy in our body. We are not dead so long as our body has life or prana in it. Similarly, we are healthy so long as we have regular flow of life force energy or prana or reiki in our body. In Hindu philosophy, when one dies, it is said that he has become brahm-leen. Which means that his prana has merged in to the brahm or universal life force energy or cosmic energy. It is this brahm or cosmic energy that is an eternal source of energy. The better we are connected to this energy the more we are at peace. By surrendering to the Reiki energy, we surrender our life to the cosmic energy. In a Reiki treatment one channels the life force energy to his body to remove the ailments. It is a holistic method of treatment for total relaxation & stress release, self-treatment of mind, body and soul. It works on the concept of seven chakras. Our body which we see is known as Physical Body. There are six other bodies outside our physical body. Most of us do not see them with our naked eyes. They are called : ©Ajit Upadhyay

Etheric Body Mental Body Emotional Body Spiritual Body Astral Body Celestial Body

In general, these bodies are called "AURA". Aura is a Latin word meaning "a breath of air", "a glow of light" or "fragrance". Each of our outer body of energy field (or layer of aura) have different diameter e.g. the spiritual body has a diameter of 15-18feet, the mental body has a diameter of up to 8 feet whereas the etheric body which radiates from the physical body has a diameter of up to 8 inches. These outer bodies may be photographed using a "Kirlian Camera" or PIP Camera (Polycontrast Interference Photography). Typical aura photograph using a Polycontrast Interference Photography (PIP) camera of me and my sister are available here -> me, my sister. Out of our seven bodies, if the first three bodies namely physical, etheric and mental bodies are in harmony, we have perfect health (physical as well as emotional). Physical Body : The body which we see with our eyes, where we feel the diseases. The modern medical system does diagnosis and treatment on this body. Etheric Body : It is like an armor which protects our physical body from negative vibrations. The seven major chakras are on this body. These chakras are also known as energy centers. Mental Body : All our thoughts are developed here, they go to our physical body via the etheric body. Normally we have two kinds of thoughts, positive & negative. Positive thoughts are our divine power whereas negative thoughts are devilish power. Our life is molded by our thoughts. Our negative thoughts create pressure on our physical body and such pressure is then converted into body pain. In the long run this body pain is transformed into a disease. These ©Ajit Upadhyay
