Reiki (pronounced ray-key) can help speed healing of muscle, bone and tissue, as well as bring the body into a state of balance with more life energy or Chi. This life energy runs through the Chakras in our body, which then moves into the rest of our body for health and balance. There are 7 major Chakras, and their connections to our organs, glands, and emotions are listed below.
The 7 major Chakras (or energy centers in the body) receive, assimilate and distribute energy. This energy or life force enters our body through our electromagnetic field, known as the aura. Our Chakras whirl like mini tornados in the front and back of our body, in close proximity to the 7 major glands. The chakras step down the Universal Life Force, which has a much higher frequency than our 3rd dimensional bodies. As this Life Force is tuned down, then our 3rd dimensional bodies can utilize this energy. The Life Force is what keeps us alive.
The 7 energy centers resonate and vibrate to the same frequencies of the rainbow colors and their corresponding sound vibrations of the C scale in music. When the Chakras are evenly balanced and in tune with each other, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual selves are working in harmony for optimum health and well-being. Thinking of your body as a musical instrument is a good analogy, because each string (chakra) of your musical instrument (body) resonates with and becomes harmonized by a corresponding note on the C scale. This is why listening to music can be so relaxing and therapeutic!
