Energy is omnipresent. We are energy, the objects around you, seen and unseen are energy. Einstein pointed out an intimate link between energy with his equation E=MC2 . To practice reiki you don't need special paranormal gifts. All you have to understand is that energy is all around you and ready to be tapped with your mind.
Like yoga, Reiki is another alternative for human energy control and meditative practice. Just like any form of spiritual, physical and mental rehabilitation, Reiki has proven to work positively since its development a hundred years ago. Reiki in a nutshell, is a specific form of 'hands on' energy healing developed in Japan. A reiki practitioner channels energy from the infinite reservoir around himself and and directs it into the recipient's energy field. Reiki provides benfits similar to qi gong, pranayama, and tai chi.
Reiki revitalizes the physical body and clears energy blockages that debilitate. To a certain degree it can restore a body ravaged by bacteria, viruses, your own negative thoughts and psychic onslaught.
When you become a Reiki professional you can heal yourself and other people. Self healing implies more than mere bodily healing; it also involves enhancing the quality of your life. Take an example. After two months of John's first reiki clearing, he resigned from a profession that depressed him. New opportunities appeared, which he took. Eventually he achieved balance.
Reiki does not require a specific belief system. The practice is non-denominational
A typical healing session lasts about thirty minutes. The practitioner lays hands in certain positions over the recipient's body. Reiki is completely non-invasive and the client remains fully clothed. During the healing, warmth is felt and a tingling sensation marks the flow of energy..
Because reiki relaxes so completely, the recipient often falls asleep during a treatment. It can be one of the best ways to release stress!
Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. It is traditionally transferred to the student by a Reiki practitioner with an awakened energy system. Through the Transfer or "Attunement", the principle of resonance causes the recipient to awaken his energetic body. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source.
The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki "Master."
There have been reports that attunement increases psychic sensitivity. Students report experiences involving: opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness, and other psychic abilities after receiving a Reiki attunement.
After obtaining 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, two succeeding attunements are recommended to fully engorge the energy systems with life giving chi. Benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling, increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, increased psychic sensitivity, and a an awakened mind. Attunements are usually given by someone who has taken Third degree Reiki, which is often considered master level.
The Reiki attunement kick starts a healing process that scrubs clean stagnant energy, awakens the chakras, erases negative emotional imprints and other detrimental patterns that holds one back.
A first level reiki attunement allows one to heal himself and others of minor discomforts.
A level two reiki attunement allows one to heal graver maladies and emotional ills.
A third level attunement gives one the power to attune others to the energy and spawn masters similar to himself. This works through the principle of resonance: imagine striking a tuning fork. The sound waves from this fork propagates and makes forks nearby resonate with the same energy.
