What is Celtic Reiki?
Celtic Reiki is a form of holistic therapy that helps connect you to the natural world around you. In the same way as a stroll through a forest, or a day at the beach can refresh, relax, and invigorate, Celtic Reiki philosophy recognizes that by reconnecting to the Earth we can improve our health and sense of wellbeing. Life, especially in large towns or cities, can disconnect us from nature. We feel separate or distinct from the world and the cycles of life. Many of the innate sensory and perceptive skills we possess have become atrophied, whilst our species has become very disrespectful of home, ourselves, and the very things we need to survive, such as air, water, and a stable environment.
Celtic Reiki is vibrational in essence; working with the philosophy that all things are created and permeated by a universal force. In quantum philosophy this could be seen as energy interacting as particles (the Universe interacting itself into being), and in ancient cultures, this was seen as an all-encompassing life-force which is expressed by many names and philosophies. ‘Ki’ is the term used by the Shinto and Taoist traditions and is believed to exist in various different ‘flavors’ or types, such as Shinki, Jiki, and Reiki.
By shifting our perspective to one more akin with Reiki, we experience the subtle, yet extraordinary wisdom and power of this life-force. Celtic Reiki practice uses this expanded awareness to shift us towards the natural world. A Celtic Reiki Master shifts their viewpoint of a situation using ‘essences’ and can help others to heal or expand their own perspective. Using Tree, Mineral, Stellar, and other forms of essence, the treatments conducted by Celtic Reiki Mystics realign us with the Earth and therefore create a natural healing process, using the body’s own mechanisms. Master practices extend this, to enable other people to ‘calibrate’ to a Reiki perspective for themselves.
By adjusting our viewpoint to one that is closer to the natural world, we awaken our inner-senses and become more resonant with the indigenous cultures of the world, such as the ancient Celts of Western Europe. This blending of historical beliefs and cultures helps us to learn from tradition, but in a modern perspective which helps us transcend the traumas and challenges of modern life.
