Reiki

ReikiThe words harmony, integration, holistic, healing all come to my mind when think of Reiki. It is an alternative form of healing. Sometimes when an emotional problem manifests itself as a cancerous tumor, then no amount of modern medicine will aid the ailing human being .

This is because the allopathic medicine is only attacking the external factors associated with the ailment. That emotional blockage is being over looked. The first thing that you are taught to say when being initiated into the world of Reiki is "Attitude is Gratitude". You have to open your mind and the rest will come automatically. A glance into the magical world of Reiki ……..

Rei - Spiritual Wisdom

The word Rei means universal and this is the definition most have accepted. The kanji ideograms have many levels of meaning. The word Rei as it is used in Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God or the Higher Self. Its all about the process of mind.


Ki -- The Life Force

Ki means the same as Chi (soul) in Chinese, Prana (soul) in Sanskrit and Ti or Ki in Hawaiian. Ki is the life force (soul), the force we have with our soul. 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 (soul) circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, the life force departs. 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 healing.

 

Is Reiki a Religion?

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. its about our soul and mind. 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. Because Reiki comes from God, 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.

 

How Does Reiki Work?

Reiki_2We are alive because life force is flowing through us, through our mind through our soul. 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. 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. 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.

 

What is Reiki & Who Can Learn It?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 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 malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

 

Ancient Origins

Speculation based on knowledge of other ancient healing systems has led to a plausible hypothesis that may shed some light on the pre-Usui origins of Reiki. There is a Tibetan Buddhist healing technique called the Medicine Buddha. It involves the laying-on of hands similar to Reiki. The ability to do Medicine Buddha healing is transmitted to the student through an empowerment given by the teacher similar to a Reiki attunement. There are other spiritual lineage's in Tibetan Buddhism involving the transmission of ability or value through empowerments. Since Tibetan Buddhism is the only form of Buddhism that uses empowerments, it is likely that the Reiki Dr. Usui rediscovered was formerly a Tibetan technique that had been lost.

 

Can Anyone Learn Reiki?

The ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on intellectual capacity, nor does one have to be able to meditate. It does not take years of practice. It is simply passed on from the teacher to the student. As soon as this happens, one has and can do Reiki. Because of this, it is easily learned by anyone.

 

The Attunement

The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki Master. The process is guided by the Rei or God-consciousness and makes adjustments in the process depending on the needs of each student. The attunement is also attended by Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who help implement the process. Many report having mystical experiences involving personal messages, healings, visions, and past life experiences. The attunement can also increase psychic sensitivity. Students often report experiences involving: opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness, and other psychic abilities after receiving a Reiki attunement. Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. It does not wear off and you can never lose it. While one attunement is all you need for each level to be attuned to that level, additional attunements bring benefit. Experimentation has found that additional attunements of the same level add to the value of that level. These benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling, increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, clarity of mind, increased psychic sensitivity, and a raised level of consciousness.


Growing with Reiki

Reiki_3Once you have learned a healing technique for your mind and soul, the work begins. To develop your understanding of, and sensitivity in, Reiki it is a good idea to devote time to regular practice, find a supportive teacher and practice group and pursue continuing study. Make sure that you arrange circumstances so that you can be nurtured in your healing and growth in regard of your mind and soul. Keep your eyes on your goals, your mind in your heart and take things one step at a time. This is because the allopathic medicine is only attacking the external factors associated with the ailment. That emotional blockage is being over looked. The first thing that you are taught to say when being initiated into the world of Reiki is "Attitude is Gratitude". You have to open your mind and the rest will come automatically.
