REIKI (Ray Key)
'Universal Life Force'
Reiki is a hands on healing that works on the Chakras.
The chakras are the spiritual centre of the physical body.
The word 'chakra' in sanskrit means 'wheel of light'.
There are seven main chakras in the body, which run down the
centre, each connects to specific body areas and functions.
The roots of Reiki are thought to lie in Tibetan Buddhism, this
energy however was lost but then rediscovered in the late 1800's by Dr Mikao Usui,
following a twenty one day fast and meditation on the top of Mt Kurama in Kyoto(Japan).
Since then, the energies have been passed on from person to person.
During his lifetime Dr Usui carried out numerous
healings, opened a clinic in Tokyo, and passed on the energy to many people.
Dr Usui was born on August 15th 1864.
He died on March 9th 1926 but his legacy lives on today.
Anyone can learn to channel Reiki energy, which is passed
on to the person by a Reiki Master (this is known as an attunement).
Once you are attuned to Reiki you have the energy for life.
There are three levels of Reiki.
The first is a very low and subtle energy which gently adjusts to the body.
Next is level two, which increases the energy greatly. At this time you are given symbols to work with,
also giving you the ability to send the energies over distance. Reiki has no barrier of time or distance.
As Reiki will connect with the emotional centres first, it is not advised to do both levels together,
this after all is a spiritual journey, to be enjoyed.
(It is recommended that at least three months elapse between learning level one and level two Reiki)
Reiki Master training can begin at least six months after level two. Once you have reached this stage,
and after a period of time, you can then attune other people into Reiki energies.
It is important to understand that the Reiki practioner is a
vessel which channels the energy from the divine source,
opening the chakras of the recipient to start the healing.
The healing comes from the person receiving the energies.
To receive healing you do not have to beleive in the Reiki
healer or the energies, only in yourself, that you wish your
issue to move, be it physical or emotional.
On the other hand, you do not have to be unwell in order to have a Reiki treatment.
During the last four years i have done a lot of research into
the energies of Reiki, travelled to Mt Kurama, trained with William Lee Rand,
connected with many Masters and carried out hundreds of healings.
The journey continues, the energy
levels continue to rise. More challenges and barriers to break.
Once you start on this path, the learning has no end.
Never rush this, make time between each level of Reiki
and you will experience greater benefits
both for yourself and others that you will connect with.
