Reiki

 Untitled Document


Reiki is a Japanese form of healing that is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word representing universal life energy, the energy which is all around us. It is derived from rei, meaning "free passage" or "transcendental spirit" and ki, meaning " universal life energy". Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize their body. Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced. What makes Reiki unique is that it incorporates elements of other alternative healing practices such as auras, crystals, chakra balancing and meditation. Reiki involves the transfer of energy to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki practitioners primarily learn Reiki to practice on themselves and once they have restored and balanced their own energy, they can then apply Reiki on others.

Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibration frequency of the body. The laying of hands is used in Reiki therapy also as in spiritual healing.

Those who use Reiki regularly often find they are more joyful, lively and their own in-built energy is enhanced-almost as if their batteries had been fully charged! Existing conflicts within the person are broken down and there is a greater vitality, leading to relaxation and a stimulation of the body. As this improvement develops, the natural processes of renewal and removal of toxins are enhanced and rendered more effective, ultimately opening up more of the body to the life energy.

Body organs such as the skin, and protective systems such as the immune system are improved providing the individual is prepared regularly to undertake Reiki and in the first place to undergo an attunement or initiation into Reiki energy. The initiation is merely a means whereby the universal life energy is bestowed through the Reiki master. The master acts as a channel to release the healing power.

Anyone can use Reiki after an initiation by a Reiki Master. This initiation allows the individual access to the universal life energy, which is used rather than their own life energy. Also, an initiation conveys a greater capacity for using Reiki energy, with no associated tiredness and further, it provides a protective mechanism against any negative manifestations.

Initiation or Becoming a Reiki Master
Through a series of attunements, part of the initiation process for new Reiki practitioners, a Reiki master employs the ancient symbols that attune an individual's nervous system to a higher level of energy. A level is reached in which the students, neither highly trained nor especially gifted, can experience more energy flowing through their hands, enabling them to use universal energy through their hands.

Reiki is taught in three levels or degrees. In Level I or First Degree, the participant receives attunement or initiation to the Reiki energy by the Reiki master. In this level, the student learns how to do full body treatments on self and others.

In Level II or Second Degree, the participant receives attunements, which increase the strength of the practitioner's Reiki energy. This primarily involves learning the symbols, which are used in advanced Reiki bodywork and absentee healing.

In Level III or Third Degree, the participant receives third-level empowerment and the à final symbol'. It is taught mainly for personal growth and is also a step for those who would like to become a Reiki Master and teach Reiki. The III-B course is intend to teach.

After each level, students are required to work on themselves in a 21 day cleansing period and come to Reiki Treatment -Groups held by the Reiki Master. A minimum of 3 months is recommended between each level and the Level II student is required to complete a minimum of 20 Reiki treatments on others before being considered for the Reiki Mastery Program.

Hi... at the moment, I live in Japan, an hour from Kyoto - the place where Reiki supposedly originated. I´m a foreigner who doesn´t speak the language... it´s a little bit hard for me to find Reiki here (I think most Japanese people either don´t know about it, or they don´t believe in it, so it´s fruitless to ask them). Can anyone tell me how to find reiki here in Japan?

Thank you for the beautiful and informative article on Reiki. I am a Usui Reiki Master from Canada and would love to be in contact with people of similiar interests and backgrounds. I have been in Istanbul for about 7 months now and have enjoyed it thoroughly, but am ready to spread my wings and expand my horizons energetically. Anyone interested in getting together to discuss Reiki or other energetically inspired work, please contact me. Perhaps we can set up a support group of some kind. My e-mail address is [email protected] Until then, light and love to to all.
