Reiki is a Japanese word, which refers to the active “Life Force” of the universe. For a long time it has been acknowledged by many of the Eastern and traditional Ethnic cultures that the universe is not just empty space but that it is filled with a dynamic energy.
The Reiki is now commonly used to refer to Dr Usui’s System of Natural Healing by channeling the universal Life Energy through the hands. Reiki helps to heal body, mind and spirit. It does this by accelerating the body’s own ability to heal itself physically and by opening the mind to the emotional and spiritual causes of disease and pain.
The flow of energy is experienced mostly as heat by both the person channeling the energy and those receiving, but it may also be experienced as a fine tingling, a tremor and in cases of extreme need a deep chill. Most people having a Reiki treatment become aware of tension dropping away while the ever chattering mind becomes still. This gives rise to a deep sense of relaxation and an overall sense of well being.
Reiki First Degree is completed with a series of 4 attunements given by a Reiki Master. This level is where you are introduced to the energy and learn how to work with it. During this stage, you will learn how you and the energy will work together. You will learn how the different sensations you feel during healing are indicative of different healing aspects.
E.g. you will learn how your hands feel:
- when there is a blockage
- an old injury
- a serious injury or illness
- when there is only partial energy flow
- when the person is highly stressed etc.
We will discuss the history of Reiki and include a meditation. You and others will notice the difference in your level of awareness after each attunement.
Reiki Second Degree is only one attunement, but there are 3 symbols for you to learn. These symbols include one that activates second degree energy and is a power boost, one which works on a mental/emotional level, and one which enables you to send healing over distance and time.
The third level is Reiki Master, which is completed with one attunement and enables the recipient to attune others to Reiki. It is the level where you agree and commit to teach others. The symbol you learn at this level is the Master symbol.
