Reiki is an energy that flows. In comes from the universe into the crown chakra, moves through the body and out the hands… over and over. It is often used to open up the channels of energy and remove blocks in the body. The theory is that when we are blocked and energy is stuck, dis-ease of the body occurs. The same can be said for our ability to own our self worth. If we are always giving and never receiving, we can block the channels for our own receiving. Over giving and under receiving can create a constriction in our flow of energy. It can block our self.
