Life Force Energy
and its impediments through negative thoughts and feelings (incl. introduction to Reiki)
Copyright © 2004 Healing Cancer Naturally
For millennia, the Chinese and other cultures have believed in the existence of a life energy (called by various names such as Chi, Prana etc.). Even if, as some say, the existence of this energy has not been proven, there is a hospital in China which has treated thousands of people using “nothing” but life energy (Chi) techniques (and the belief in them), with their successes including the spontaneous disappearance of cancer monitored on-screen via ultrasound!
The fact that some are able to melt away tumours in seconds, supposedly through emitting energy into the patient, points to cancer indeed being caused by a lack or disturbance in the patient’s life energy flow, or, as for instance oriental medicine (TCM), eminent alternative & conventional cancer treatment researcher Lothar Hirneise and Orin (an entity channelled by Sanaya Roman) maintain, disease being a blockage of energy.
Vibrational and energetic healing modalities (such as EFT, acupressure, light, sound and colour) to my feeling will play a major part in the future of the healing arts.
In keeping with Barbara Brennan’s scientific discoveries re the human aura and its influence on health and disease, the following offers a summary of the energetic make-up of our being and an introduction to the healing system called Reiki. Excerpted and compiled by Healing Cancer Naturally from texts found on various websites and apparently originally published by William Lee Rand in “Reiki, the Healing Touch”.
Ki - The Life Force
The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to our quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The existence of this ”life force energy” has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process in humans.

Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit, and Ti or Ki in Hawaiian. It has also been called odic force, orgone, and bioplasma. It has been given many other names by the various cultures that have been aware of it.
Ki is the life force. It is also called the vital life force or the universal life force. This is the nonphysical energy that animates all living things. As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, this life force departs. If your life force is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high, and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. Life force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and also is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.
Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
[So] we are alive because [this] life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura.
The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
The Chinese place great importance on the life force or what they call Chi. They have studied it for thousands of years and have discovered there are many different kinds of Chi. The ”Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine” which is over 4,000 years old, lists thirty-two different kinds of Chi or Ki.
Ki is used by martial artists in their physical training and mental development. It is used in meditative breathing exercises called Pranayama, and by the shamans of all cultures for divination, psychic awareness, manifestation and harmony. Ki is the nonphysical energy used by all healers. Ki is present all around us and can be accumulated and guided by the mind.
Do All Healers Use Reiki?
All healers use life force or Ki, but not all use Reiki. Reiki is a special kind of life force that can only be channeled by someone that has been attuned to it. It is possible that some people are born with Reiki or have gotten it some other way. However, most healers who have not received the Reiki attunement from a Reiki Master are not using Reiki but another kind of life force. People who already do healing work consistently report an increase of at least fifty percent in the strength of their healing energies after taking the Reiki training.
This was verified for me when I first began teaching Reiki. There were two clairvoyant healers I knew who had highly developed abilities. They could easily see the life force flowing through a person's body, as well as see the aura and chakras. They could also communicate with a person's guides and Higher Self. They were adept at moving negative psychic energy out of the body as well as channeling healing energies. In my twenty years of metaphysical work, they were the most accurate and effective psychic healers I had met. They told me later they had doubted there was anything I was teaching they couldn't already do, but that they took the Reiki training anyway, simply to support me in my new work. After the attunement, they were amazed at the difference they could feel between the healing energies they had been using and Reiki. They said the Reiki energies were more powerful and of a much higher frequency. They noted also that Reiki didn't have to be guided like the other healing energies they were using, and that the Reiki energies began flowing without having to enter an altered state. They also indicated the attunement process itself was a powerful healing experience, releasing restrictions relating to their healing work they had unknowingly acquired when they were healers in past lives. They were very pleased they had taken the class.
Reiki Can Never Cause Harm
Because Reiki is guided by the God-consciousness, it can never do harm. It always knows what a person needs and will adjust itself to create the effect that is appropriate for them. One never need worry about whether to give Reiki or not. It is always helpful. In addition, because the practitioner does not direct the healing and does not decide what to work on, or what to heal, the practitioner is not in danger of taking on the karma of the client. Because the practitioner is not doing the healing, it is also much easier for the ego to stay out of the way and allow the presence of God to clearly shine through.
