Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The mind exists not only in the brain but also throughout the body. The nervous system extends to every organ and tissue in the body and so the mind exists here also. Because of this, it is more appropriate to call our mind a mind/body as the mind and body are so closely linked. The places where negative thoughts and feelings collect is where Ki is restricted in its flow. The physical organs that exist at these locations are restricted in their functioning, which allows illness to manifest.
