History of Reiki
 
   
 

Reiki is a Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. Reiki is an ancient system that can be experienced by either 'hands on' or by distant (remote) healing.

The practice of Reiki is believed to come from ancient texts rediscovered and developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early last century (see under History of Reiki). The Japanese word Reiki means 'Universal Energy'. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to the well-being of life. The energy is known as 'ki' in Japan, 'chi' in China, and 'prana' in India. Acupuncture, tai chi and yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person. As a therapy, Reiki is an effective and simple way of tapping into this energy, and transferring it for the benefit of the receiver, to stimulate the body's own natural healing potential.

The Reiki treatment encourages physical, mental and emotional healing and spiritual growth.

This unique gift of healing is learned by a process of attunements or initiations. A person who has been attuned to Reiki (please see Reiki Attunement Courses) has experienced a very ancient technology for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibrational level. Also the energy centres, the chakras, are opened to enable the person to channel higher amounts of the Reiki energy.

Reiki is drawn through the practitioner, and the recipient's body will draw the energy to those parts of their body that require it, the practitioner also being healed as he or she gives the treatment. Energy enters through the practitioner's crown chakra and passes through the upper charkas to their heart and solar plexus chakras and passed through arms and hands to the recipient. The process does not drain the practitioner as the Reiki passes through a purified channel that is opened by the attunements.


Uses of Reiki?
Reiki can also be used to promote the growth and health of plants and to
germinate seeds.

Reiki has also been used with great success on animals.

Reiki can also be used to heal the Earth, and to direct healing energy to troubled areas of the planet.

Reiki is not a religion, or a belief system, as it holds no creed or doctrine. Reiki will work whether or not you believe in it!

Reiki not only works on the physical level; it can relieve pain, help to regenerate organs and tissue, but also Reiki loosens blocked energy, promotes total relaxation, and works on the mental and emotional levels re-establishing mental well-being and spiritual
equilibrium.

Reiki is a transformational tool to help the development of higher levels of consciousness and spiritual awareness. It awakens the inner self to know that it is part of all creation.

Reiki can be used for self healing. Daily self treatments will maintain well being, reduce stress and encourage the body's natural healing abilities.

Reiki is for life, you will not need further attunements.
