We are all composed of pure energy – reiki – and coordinated by it, yet we struggle to understand what that energy actually is. How can that be? How can we not understand the very thing that we are composed of?
In Part 2 of ‘What Is Reiki’, I will provide more insights into the research and investigation of universal energy, provided by contemporary scientists and physicians. In doing so, I will attempt to represent their views on the intelligence and consciousness of universal energy or reiki.
Barbara Ann Brennan, a renowned psychotherapist, astrophysicist, author and healer, described a Universal Energy Field which is composed of a profoundly finer substance than what we normally identify as being physical matter. That super-fine-grained energy has been described by most cultures since the beginning of recorded history – all of them, unfortunately, referring to that universal energy by different names, resulting in an inability to develop a common understanding.
The Universal Energy Field or reiki energy, as described by Barbara Ann Brennan, occupies the entire universe and permeates everything in existence: animate and inanimate objects alike. It flows between objects and follows the laws of entrainment (the sympathetic cooperation of all things which have a similar rate of vibration).
The Universal Energy Field is also capable of building complex, cooperative structures, being the process which is often referred to as negative entropy, and is the fundamental process whereby all living things develop there magnificent state of complexity.
“The UEF is always associated with some form of consciousness, ranging from highly developed to very primitive. The highly developed consciousness is associated with the “higher vibrations” and energy levels.“
Quoted from: Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing through the Human Energy Field, Barbara Ann Brennan, 1988.
Barbara Ann Brennan went on to describe the healing process as being a process where balance is re-established between the many layers of the aura and the physical structures of the body, as well as the mind, emotions, and spiritual aspects of the person being healed, using the Universal Energy Field as a source of pure, restorative energy, otherwise referred to as reiki.
Laura Alden Kamm, a celebrated medical intuitive and energy healer, described universal energy as being conscious in nature. She also described good health as stemming from a sense of wholeness, whereby one’s physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual selves are in balance, while also acknowledging our oneness with the larger forces of the universe.
Alden Kamm described the fact that we, as humans, are composed of expansive, invisible energies and forces which are intelligent in nature. She also described the fact that our bodies are composed of subtle channels and vortices (meridians and chakras). Her wonderful point of view is supported by Ayurvedic medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the majority of indigenous cultures around the world, which acknowledge that a vital life-force energy creates and sustains physical life.
“When I speak of energy, I refer to two distinct qualities. First, energy is a by-product of consciousness; it is the demonstration of consciousness in a denser but still subtle form. Second, energy is more palpable than consciousness. For instance, when someone says something to you and you suddenly feel goose bumps or sourness in your stomach, you are feeling her consciousness physically as energetic sensations in your body. I call these ‘energetic impacts.’ Energetic impacts stimulate both your neurological and biochemical systems, consequently affecting the grosser levels of matter in your body – muscles, organ tissues, and bone structures. The exercises contained in this book will help you feel energy; but for now, I simply want you to be aware that what you are feeling are levels of consciousness – thought forms – that reside in and around your physical body.“
Quoted from: Intuitive Wellness: Using your Body’s Inner Wisdom to Heal, Laura Alden Kamm. 2006.
Franz Mesmer (1734 – 1815) used a type of reiki on his patients, but attributed his powers to a hitherto unknown physical/psychic force (which he called Animal Magnetism). He described this force or fluid as permeating the universe and suggested that the human nervous system was somehow attuned to it. Mesmer treated his patients directly by channeling energy through his own body and transferring it into the affected part of the patient by the laying-on of hands, and indirectly by ‘magnetizing’ iron bars or other objects. In pre-revolutionary Paris, Mesmer’s patients were treated in groups.
Mesmer spoke of Animal Magnetism as an atmospheric fluid which surrounded, charged, and animated living creatures, and could be projected across a distance by a therapist. He described the universal fluid as being continuous and without break or vacuum and phenomenally subtle in nature. That property is the same as reiki’s ability to treat at a distance.
Psychologist Wilhelm Reich, who worked alongside Sigmund Freud, also researched universal energy. He experimented extensively with reiki energy and its affect on people’s health and wellness, discovering the following properties of the universal energy he referred to as Orgone Energy:
Orgone energy, or universal energy is ubiquitous, filling the entire universe without exception. It is mass-free, cosmic, and primordial in nature. It penetrates all matter, but at different rates of speed. It spontaneously pulsates, expands and contracts, and flows with a spinning wave characteristic and is directly observable and measurable.
Orgone, or Universal Energy is negatively entropic, and has a strong mutual affinity and attraction to/by water. It is accumulated naturally by living organisms through foods, water, breath, and through the skin. It creates sensations of tingling and warmth of skin surface, and provides increased core and skin temperature, or flushing.
Orgone, or Universal Energy regulates and moderates blood pressure and pulse rate, plus increases peristalsis, digestion, and respiration, in addition to increasing germination, budding, flowering and fruiting of plants. It results in increased rates of tissue growth, repair, wound healing, integrity of tissues, and immunity, plus greater energy levels, activity, and a sense of well-being and vitality.

Who Discovered Orgone Energy?
Orgone energy was discovered by Dr. Wilhelm Reich. Reich was born in Austria in 1897. By 1922 he graduated from the University of Vienna as a Doctor of Medicine. During his study for his doctorate, Reich became a pupil of Sigmund Freud. Later he became the clinical assistant at Freud’s Psychoanalytical Clinic. Dr. Reich wrote numerous books on psychology, neurosis, anxiety, religion, and sexuality.
During the 1930’s, Reich was performing experiments with airborne microorganisms. At this time, he was a highly esteemed and respected scientist in the medical field. It was also during this time that he wrote additional books about Biopathy, Cosmology, Bioelectricity, Orgone and Ether. It is during these experiments with airborne organisms that he discovered a special type of radiation particle. He termed this particle “Orgone.”
What is Orgone Energy & How Does It Affect the Human Body?
After further experimentation and research, Dr. Reich demonstrated that the Orgone radiation was the same energy that the sun gave off. Dr. Reich was able to culture and inoculate what he called “SAPA Bions” of the cosmic orgone energy. When he placed live cancer cells next to the Orgone “Bions,” the cancer cells would die.
During these experiments, Dr. Reich was discovering the growth patterns of life by tangibly identifying the concept of morphogenetic energy fields that have form-building power. Dr. Reich observed orgone as omnipresent, and the basis of all life processes. He also made this connection by observing the same principle in the forming of galaxies, as on a cellular or macro-biological level. When Reich revealed his research to Albert Einstein, he exclaimed: “this would be a bombshell to physics.”
Dr. Reich was able to apply his earlier research of psychological disorders to the behavior of Orgone. When energy is blocked by traumatic memories, and then stored in the tissues of the body, this can cause muscular tension. He termed this accumulation and blockage: “Armouring.” This stagnate energy becomes “Deadly Orgone Energy.” It is also referred to as “DOR.” Dr. Reich believed that Deadly Orgone Energy was largely responsible for environmental decay, psychological and mental disturbances in life forms, as well as the body’s physical degeneration. Dr Reich discovered the therapeutic use of Orgone’s ability to clear these energetic blockages that exist within the body that would often be associated with major disease or illness, including cancer.

What is Universal Energy?
Universal Energy is a vital force that sustains all forms of life. It can be found everywhere in nature. Indeed, all living creatures need Universal Energy to maintain their vital functions. A lack or an imbalance of this vital life-energy in our body may lead to stress-related problems or discomfort. By tapping into Universal Energy we can go beyond mere manifestations to arrive at the root of the problem.
Universal Energy works throughout the body’s organs and cells. When Universal Energy circulates within our body, we call it Human Energy. As it flows throughout the body, it helps our energy system to regain its natural balance and holistically improve overall health in harmony with body, mind and soul.
This energy of existence has always been there. It belongs to everyone and it includes everyone. Everyone needs this divine energy to live. It gives life to you and gives life to all living creatures. This energy does not discriminate because it is inclusive. It does not differentiate among cultures, nations and countries.
