The concept of life force is always found in many ancient cultures. Philosophers and healers referred energy medicine as the main essence of life. In India it was called “prana”. In other parts it was called “reiki”.
“Reiki” is a Japanese word which means “rei” meaning universal, and “ki”, which means life energy. In ancient times, Lord Buddha and Jesus Christ used to heal people and this healing was known as the touch therapy which means healing by touching someone. They had the powers to heal anyone in the world as there were all highly spiritual and renowned souls.
Therapeutic Touch and other forms of "holistic healing" are now widely practiced within the whole world. Energy healing is based on the belief that everything in the universe is composed of energy, also referred to as the life force, which connects the individual to the invisible whole. This oneness causes the individual to be affected by energies in the universe. During physical or emotional disease, the individual's life force creates energy fields that are unbalanced. The philosophy of energy healing believes that treatment must consider the person's connection to the universe as well as the interaction of the mind, body, and spirit.
The practice of energy healing is not in itself a religion, but it is a pathway to one's own spirituality. It leads us on a personal journey that encourages us to focus on ourselves and how our energy is in synch with the energies of the cosmos, the earth, and all other life. Through this, we can supposedly be taught to heal ourselves by using clairvoyance to “visualize” where the negative energy is in order to determine the cause of the problem, whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual. I can only say one thing as –Paracelsus says “The art of healing comes from nature and not from the physician. Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind." So believe in the art of energy medicine which can help us all lead a very good and a happy life.
