What is Reiki?

Reiki is a modern version of an ancient healing art that utilizes the intrinsic ability of one to heal him/herself by activating it with the energy of the Universe. The energy that comes from the source of all consciousness, The Creator, “God”, or whatever for you might identify with it. During a Reiki treatment energy is passed from the Practitioner or Master to the person (or animal, or plant, etc.) that wishes to be healed. The energy does not come from the practitioner, as the healer is only a vessel for the transfer of energy. A Reiki practitioner has had a special attunement or series of attunements that open his/her energetic system to receive and transmit the flow of energy. The Reiki Master has achieved the highest level of potential openness that a person can receive on the physical plane. A master is also given the ability to pass attunements to others and thereby becomes a vessel for the Divine consciousness at work in our Universe.” by Rev. Jason Storm

There are Reiki practitioners in every country of the world and that is why Reiki is one of the most widely known methods of energy healing.

Recently the various state health organizations are not happy with Reiki Practitioners using the words Energy Healing. They think that only doctors can heal and take no notice that Reiki in one form or another has been around over 4000 years. Reiki involves direct application of universal energy or Chi for the purpose of strengthening the clients energy system (aura). A beam of Reiki — or the term Chi as the Chinese mystics and martial artists call this energy — is a stream of universal life force energy. The Universe is made of is made of this force. Call it by any name: Reiki, Chi, Chi Gong, Holy Spirit, etc., it is still the force of life that holds all together.

Reiki 1 training and attunement increases the flow of energy coming into the students body. The Reiki practitioner finds flowing Reiki to be effortless because the energy manages its own flow to and within the recipient. The client actually draws through the Reiki practitioner exactly the right amount of Reiki energy he or she needs. The Reiki practitioner never pushes energy into the client besides it is impossible to push Reiki.

Becoming a student of Reiki increases your connection with Source energy. It will speed up your karma because things we think about will manifest faster. Thoughts are things and your thoughts are speeding out to manifest your destiny using the Law of attraction. Can you imagine the idea that the universe around us made from energy, which can be shaped and manipulated by our thoughts. The Law of attraction uses both Quantum Physics and ancient Metaphysics and gives you an actual physical manifestation of your thoughts and feelings.

Mystery schools, spiritual masters, ancient mystics, shamans and witch doctors in different traditions have talked about the physical universe being made of an underlying form of something some call this stuff God. Now modern physics research is starting to understand the Universe is made of atoms. An atom is a very small particle that makes up matter. (Matter is anything that has mass and uses space; it is what everything that you can touch and feel is made of.) So the universe is made up of energy that is affected by the thoughts we think and even our mind chatter, complaining, and negative attitudes. This is quantum physics.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Atoms are made of 3 kinds of basic sub-atomic particles – protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have no charge, and electrons have a negative charge. Protons and neutrons have almost the same amount of mass, while electrons are much smaller. Usually, an atom has about the same number of the three particles. The protons and neutrons are close together at the center of the atom. This clump is the atom’s nucleus.

Just as modern physics says this energy – electrons, atoms, are affected by thought the ancient mystical writings also state this underlying form is affected by thought, going so far as to claim we create our own reality from our thinking and the thoughts that run through our minds and dance between each of us in our interactions. Could your mind chatter be creating your fate?

Is society and your culture keeping you so busy that you hardly have time to meditate of even stop and think for a moment? Suppose there is a disease that has be caused by an emotional trauma or stress? How can a doctor find the cause of this sickness? It might even be a dis-incarnate spirit attached to a person causing the pain or depression.

AMA doctors could use the logical and useful information when trying to heal their clients. Might this quantum physics and mystical information make some diseases easier to explain, especially those, which have no apparent physical cause? Weve heard of miraculous cures and without this information it is not explainable. For example there was research study done years ago by the Silva mind control group showing that those who are prayed for improved their health and recovery from heart disease. As for the control group where no prayers or thoughts of wellbeing that group showed no extraordinary improvements. So if the world is energy cause to experience the power of thought then prayers must work (depending on how clearly and carefully you hold and elaborate on the prayers or thoughts). Keep in mind this process while you continue reading about Reiki.

One of the simplest energy healing methods on Earth, Reiki is very easily learned and beneficial for all, specialty to the practitioner. Reiki is one of many forms of Cosmic Energy healing modalities that uses subtle energy and natural forces. It appears that different cultures all use the same energy with the difference being techniques of application and intensity.

High vibration means health and wellness, as well as abundance, happiness and bliss. High vibrations are considered spiritual and enlightenment while the Lower vibrations in people lead to sickness, disease and finally death.

Since the word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy, Ray is a beam of light and ki is the flow of energy. It is also is called the laying-on-of-hands. Reiki has been refered to the universal energy.

Stress, anxiety, depression and other emotional difficulties are just as treatable as physical aches and pains because emotional issues are also present in the energy structures. To learn Reiki there are specific techniques taught by Reiki Masters. The authentic Reiki methods that are most sought after is the Usui System of Natural Healing after the founder of the system, Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk. However because Reiki is the common name, and well known all over the world, this is the name we use when describing energy healing in this article.

How is Reiki performed? A simple Reiki healing starts with the Reiki practitioner placing his or her hands upon the client. You do not have to touch the person receiving the energy transfer. The hands may hover over the body from one inch to 6 inches. The energy works just as well not touching. The Reiki practitioner will have the intent for healing to occur, and then the Reiki energy begins flowing. Some of the states regulations are getting stricter about touching a person and may require the practitioner to have a massage license in order to touch.

The Reiki energy seems to have a mind of its own. It knows what to work on first in a person. The Universe is in divine order and its wisdom is beyond us humans, to be sure. It has an innate intelligence that is perfect, in balance, in harmony and IT only knows love.

One valuable point for Reiki Practitioners is that Reiki seems to know where to go, what to do and it will never do harm. It will balance energy, add energy to gray or dark areas. It is source energy and certainly shows a higher intelligence than we humans have.

To flow Reiki once you are attuned to the sacred symbols, just Think Reiki and the flow happens without direct conscious intervention by the practitioner. The Reiki energy workers job is to get out of the way, to keep the healing space open, and to watch/listen and be open for signs of what to do next.

All physical reality is open to change. We live in a world of atoms that are in movement. Even solid looking matter is really in motion at the subatomic scale like a virtual reality video game. Reiki is capable of aiding anything because it works at very elemental levels of reality. Even though Reiki has the capacity to heal all that there is, this is not what always happens. As a practitioner of Reiki please dont take credit or blame for healings or even when the Reiki flow doesnt seem to work. It is up to the client to use this energy flow to its highest and best use.

There are limits and there are boundaries of all energy healing. The limits to Reiki seem to be in the recipients willingness to let go of the old habits and patterns, to accept change and to accept healing. The client must want to change and all healing is entirely up him or her. At the fourth and fifth dimension level where Reiki functions, anything can be changed because all is fluid like and reality is very malleable. This has been my experience of using the Reiki energy.

The subtle levels of energy where Reiki operates — beyond the physical reality is where miracles happen. The name Reiki is all about bringing down the Source energy from beyond the physical and using it to correct imbalances in our health. Most people do not realize the underlying energy structure of matter. The physical matter we see around us is a solidified form of energy and it is still in motion. It feels solid, but it is not — otherwise people could not walk through walls. Check out the several books on quantum physics that are written for the average person education and understanding of physics.

Ive noticed that many of the clients who come for a treatment have a victim consciousness. They feel unworthy and not good enough and are attracting even more of the same. With these feelings of being a victim, they are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. We all want life to changes for the better, to feel better, to stop the pain whether its mental, emotional or physical. We are looking for peace and happiness and most of us are looking outside of ourselves when in reality it is within. God is within. Reiki helps take you within and by clearing blockages and negative energy we create a better path to this sweet spot where we feel the inner joy.

Reiki will take you there.  Enjoy the trip.
