Reiki - What it IS and What it is NOT
So lets talk about Reiki!!!
Reiki is a spiritual, vibrational healing technique that is used to promote balance throughout the human system. The work Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rea which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy". Therefore Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It is an amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki Class. This ability is passed on during an "attunement" given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve one's health and enhance the quality of life. Reiki is NOT a religion. There's nothing you must believe in to practice and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on a belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing recommends that one uses simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which is universal across all cultures. Mikao Usui included Reiki Ideals that were developed to add spiritual balance to the practice of Reiki. This purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. The client must accept responsibility for his or her healing and and take an active part in it. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value. The secret art of inviting happiness The miraculous medicine of all diseases Just for today, do not anger Do not worry and be filled with gratitude Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people. Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer. Pray these words to your heart and chant these words with your mouth Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind The founder , Usui Mikao
Now that you have a better understanding that Reiki is the transference of energy by spiritual, emotional, mental and physical in nature. Many practitioners will include crystals and gemstones, aromatherapy, and guided meditations during their sessions. Typically the person receiving the reiki session will lay on a massage table fully clothed. Additionally, Reiki has the option of being non touch or physical touch. I personally am a Reiki II practitioner and I am currently studying to become a Reiki Master practitioner. I hope this brief explanation gave you insight to what the Reiki practice is. Our master class will have an open study for people interested in receiving a reiki session, They can come and participate in as many sessions as they would like with little or no cost to them.
