What is Reiki?
Reiki is a very ancient science, rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in mid
1800s. Reiki in Japanese means universal Life Force Energy. It is
made of two parts, Rei meaning universal,
transcendental spirit, and Ki meaning energy or power.
In India, this energy is called Shakti
It is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows
everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of life force energy
to improve health and enhance quality of life.
Reiki is a method of connecting universal energy with the bodys
innate power of healing. Reiki is simple and anybody can learn it. The
possibility of self-treatment makes it quite advantageous.
Self-treatment amplifies the life force energy in our body releasing the
withheld emotions and energy blocks.
What are its unique features?
It is a hands-on healing system for channeling the Universal Life
Energy. The way of learning is through initiations, where the student is
connected up to the Reiki channel by a Reiki master.
Following are the basic features of Reiki treatment:
What Can Be Treated?
- Reiki is not given. It is made available. The patient draws as
much energy as he requires.
- Reiki is given only on asking.
- Once a student is initiated by a Reiki master it is there for
life. Even if one doesnt practice it one doesnt forget
Reiki, its always there.
- Attunement affects each person individually depending on their
vibratory level. One can increase the energy level and healing
capacity by practicing daily and treating oneself.
Reiki is both powerful and gentle. In its long history of use it has
aided in healing virtually every known illness and injury including
serious problems like: multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and cancer as
well as skin problems, cuts, bruises, broken bones, headache, colds,
flu, sore throat, sunburn, fatigue, insomnia, impotence, poor memory,
lack of confidence, etc. It is always beneficial and works to improve
the effectiveness of all other types of therapy. Reiki will improve the
results of all medical treatment, acting to reduce negative side
effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress,
and help create optimism.
Who can learn Reiki?
As compared to another forms of therapy where the learner has to have
certain attributes to be able to learn the technique, Reiki is quite
different . Here the ability to learn is not dependent on intellectual
capacity, or on the ability to meditate or similar such things. 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 results may not be immediately perceptible but it is definitely
helpful in relieving stress and helping the person think positive. As in
most things Reiki must be experienced to be appreciated. Practicing
Reiki helps create harmony in the body, giving a deep sense of peace and
