Learning Reiki is a great starting point for experiencing and working with healing energy and an excellent method for understanding universal energy flow. Reiki complements other healing methods and spiritual practices.
Reiki is a wonderful gentle energy that anyone can gain access to it. Once learned will be with you for life.
“Once you open to it there will be no stopping you from making improvements in your life.”
Reiki is also a great starting point on your spiritual path and growth.
I use the Usui/Tibetan attunement system developed by William Lee Rand, which teaches Reiki in the traditional Usui forms to Master Teacher level, and uses a different attunement system at Advanced Master Teacher level, incorporating additional symbols that are rooted in Tibetan Buddhism.
Reiki treatment feels like a soft and relaxing radiance that flows through and around the body. Reiki works on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels improving health and enhances quality of life. During a treatment a practitioner hands are placed lightly on or over the body focusing on the meridians, endocrine and chakra systems, transmuting negative energy, releasing blockages and aligning the energy centres within the body. This allows a more natural flow of energy assisting the body to naturally heal itself. Reiki treatment is given fully clothed lying down on the therapy couch. Client fall into a lovely and peaceful state of deep relaxation and often fall asleep. Client may feel warmth or tingling in the area being treated, even when a non-touching approach is being used, there could be also emotional pain released. Usually Reiki treatment is combined with crystals and sound energy.
What is Reiki?
“Universal Life Force- the energy which flows through us and around us”
REIKI is a natural energy healing therapy based on ancient vibrational medicine, which is believed to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago. Reiki as we know today has been rediscovered by Japanese Buddhist Dr Mikao Usui in early 1900’s through his study of Old Sanskrit writings and meditation experiences on Mount Kori- Yama. Dr Usui developed Reiki concepts and techniques, he spend his life-time practising in Japan and initiating others so that knowledge would not be lost again. The main focus of this healing method was to help people realise their spiritual potential, to find peace and harmony within themselves.
Today Reiki is a simple yet powerful hands on method of spiritual healing and self- development that everyone can use and learn to bring life to balance and restore wellbeing.
The word REIKI (pronounced RAY-KEY) comes from two Japanese words:
“REI”- Spirit, Soul, Divine, Higher Power, God’s Wisdom
“KI”- Vital Energy, Breath of Life, Consciousness, Life Force Energy, life force present in all living things
Simply REIKI means UNIVERSAL LIFE FORCE ENERGY
.This unseen Universal Life Force Energy flows through us and keep us alive. If our “life force energy” is low, we are more likely to become ill, tired or depressed, if it’s high, we are more capable of being healthy, happy and relaxed.
This energy vitalizes us and connects us with everything in the Universe.
"That mysterious vital energy within the mind: One moment it arrives, the next it departs. So fine, there is nothing within it; so vast, there is nothing outside it. We lose it because of the harm caused by mental agitation." - Neiye "Inward Training" section of the Guanzi
Reiki is non- religious and everyone can receive treatment or attunement.
