Reiki

Reiki is a spiritual and physical healing practice that helps individuals overcome health issues and produce stress management in their lives. Reiki has been used for healing since the end of the 19th century, but is still growing in popularity today. Listed below are the steps to take if you desire to learn Reiki and become a Reiki Master.

There are three levels of Reiki that must be completed in order to become a Reiki Master. These are the First Degree level, the Second Degree level, and the Master/Teacher, or Third Degree, level. Each level is explained below.

First Degree Reiki

In the First Degree level of Reiki, you’ll learn how Reiki works, Reiki’s historical background, and the different types of Reiki systems that exist today. You’ll also be invited into Reiki and receive your first Reiki energy experience through Reiki Attunement.

Through Reiki Attunement, you’ll learn first-hand how to tune in to Reiki energy and use it for stress management and physical and emotional healing. This initiation usually involves lying on your back or stomach while a Master or practitioner places his or her hands from your head to toes to approximate the traditional chakra locations. The energy flows through the Master’s hands into your body.

Although much training is provided through home courses and online courses, you should receive your Reiki Attunement through a Master in person to fully understand Reiki. Once you’ve experienced Reiki for yourself, you’ll start learning how to give others Reiki treatments.

Second Degree Reiki

In the Second Degree level of Reiki, you’ll expand on your initial experiences. You’ll learn about distance healing as well. Distance healing involves channeling Reiki energies to someone in another town or even another country! The energy vibration is different with this type of Reiki. It has a higher proportion of energy from the Source and a lower proportion of Chi than the First Degree level. Where the First Degree level promotes primarily physical healing, the Second Degree level promotes healing on a mental, spiritual and emotional level.

Master/Teacher Reiki or Third Degree Level

In the Master/Teacher, or Third Degree, level of Reiki, you’ll learn how to use Reiki symbols and what they mean. You’ll also learn how to use various methods of stress management such as healing drumming and crystal healing with crystals. You’ll become familiar with sacred mantras and how the different energies work so you can teach others. You’ll also be able to perform Reiki Attunements.

There are many workshops, online and off-line, to help you learn Reiki. There are also places you can go to have a wonderful Reiki experience, such as the Bell Rock Vortex in Sedona, Arizona. Wherever you go or whomever you choose to help you along the Reiki journey, make sure to open yourself fully to the Reiki energy so you can experience its true healing power.

Nowadays, the interest in alternative medicine is growing rapidly. Among the vast number of healing modalities available, we find that Reiki has become increasingly popular around the world, especially since science has verified the existence of the universal life energy that Reiki is based on. Reiki is a powerful holistic healing system; it heals on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

So what is Reiki? The term Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. It is a very simple and easily acquired healing method that uses universal life energy, the energy which permeates our entire universe and all living things. This universal life energy is called qi or chi in China, prana in India, and ki in Japan and this is where the Reiki name derives. It circulates throughout the body and in an energy field surrounding the body. This energy field, long been known to healers and mystics, is now verified by scientists. Recent scientific experiments have verified the existence of this life force energy. Scientists have proven that everything in the universe, at a sub-atomic level, is made up of energy. Health is the harmonious flow of life energy, while imbalances in this flow, due to unhealthy habits or negative emotions lead to illness. So this subtle energy is responsible for the processes in our body on all levels: physical, emotional and mental. Reiki channels universal life energy through the hands of the practitioner into the body of the receiver and balances the energy flow in the body.

Reiki is a holistic healing system, meaning that it addresses the whole person: the physical, mental, emotional and the spiritual levels. The body is not made up of isolated parts to be fixed, like a machine; there are no separate parts, but an amazing web of energy, and in order to truly return to health, all the levels of our being must be addressed.

Reiki works on four different levels:

The physical level: Reiki strengthens the immune system. It helps in relieving pain. It balances and harmonizes the function of glands and organs. It heals by opening the blocked energy channels, the meridians, and balances the chakras. When performed regularly, toxins are removed from the body and good health and well-being is maintained.

The emotional level: One of the greatest healing benefits of Reiki is stress reduction and relaxation, which strengthens the immune system and maintains health. People who are depressed or do not feel emotionally balanced begin to feel more stable and relaxed because Reiki clears energy blockages and suppressed emotions.

The mental level: Through giving yourself Reiki, you obtain more clarity and find it easier to overcome obstacles and achieve goals. You become more positive and reach a different outlook on life. You feel more empowered.

The spiritual level: Reiki enables you to go deeper within and feel more connected to your higher self. It aids meditation, increases intuition and provides limitless benefits of spiritual growth.
Reiki is so simple yet so powerful, and this is what makes it a unique healing system that anyone can learn, because it does not require any previous experience or special ability. The Benefits of Reiki are infinite. It allows you to take an active part in your own wellness, and accelerates your growth on all levels.

So do you want to know about Reiki? Ok, let me explain how far I know about Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Reiki is capable of healing anything because it works at very fundamental levels of reality. Reiki accomplishes this by providing the recipient enough energy to step above (metaphorically) to see all that and have the courage to let go. Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize.

Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.

Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-invasive form of hands-on healing. Reiki healers claim to channel ki into “diseased” individuals for “rebalancing. Reiki healers differ from acupuncturists in that they do not try to unblock a person’s KI, but to channel the KI of the universe so that the person heals. Reiki is very popular among New Age spiritualists, who are very fond of “attunements,” “harmonies,” and “balances.

It is key important to understand that Reiki will enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels. Reiki is Universal life force energy, that which sustains life and promotes healing in all living things. But you need to understand that while Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others.

Since the word Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy, it (strictly speaking) refers to the energy and not the specific techniques taught by Reiki Masters. However as Reiki is the common name, and a fine name at that, this is the name we will use here. The limits to Reiki seem to be in the recipients willingness to cast off old habits and patters, to accept change and to accept healing. The other meaning for healing, used in the practice of Reiki as well as other related areas, is the return to greater wholeness. Over time the healing of the worlds ills will be accomplished and, with Reiki in the hands of everyone, that day will come much more quickly. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.

If you are interested in Keiki It is likely you have been guided on your healing journey, your journey of spiritual purpose to many places and many experiences in the past and now find yourself here at this place as you continue to further explore the possibilities for deep healing and inner discovery. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

So give Reiki a go, for sure it is a very interesting way of improving your life.
