The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei 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.”
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Ideals to the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five principles of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki. Their 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. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it.
Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy. It must also include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.
This is a critical part of how Reiki works.
The recipient must be willing to receive the healing energy.
The results may be non existent, if there is resistance.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Different reiki energies will have different effects, and are all very peaceful. Reiki treats all of you as the body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, love and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
There are many other forms of attuning to Reiki energy. Kundalini Reiki is an attunement method that allows you to attune to the healing capabilities of Usui Reiki in your first attunement. This is an amazing gift given to us at this time to move forward into the next phase of our journey here and the planet.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and always creates a amazing effects.
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.
Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. You only need to be ready willing to heal. Reiki comes from God, or the universe if you are more comfortable with that term, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
I came across a way to tap into the healing energies with a deep breathing technique and I am honored to be able to share this with you today.
