What does it do?
Illness happens when the mind, body and spirit become unbalanced. True wellness is reached only by returning the entire being to harmony and balance with itself and with the Earth and the Universe. We begin healing by finding our desire to be well and whole. Without the motivation to be well and the intention to act in our own behalf we can not become well. Reiki is a means to empowering us to become whole in all ways.
Another Purpose of Reiki Is to help enhance personal and spiritual evolution. Reiki will help to assist us on the path to enlightenment. Reiki is not affiliated with any one spiritual path and will work for anyone. Having Reiki does not guarantee enlightenment either. To get Reiki either means to receive Reiki treatment from a practitioner or to learn to practice Reiki. Reiki treatment may be received from any Reiki practitioner.
Reiki treatment enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself. It increases vitality and stamina. It works throughout the body, on the mind, emotions, spiritual essence and aura. Reiki treatment releases blocked energy, promotes relaxation and reduces stress. Reiki energy has a degree of innate intelligence and goes wherever most needed in the body and aura. It helps to cleanse the body of energetic and physical toxins. Reiki can over time, enhance stamina, intuition, meditation and spiritual evolution.
About Healing Energy
There are many systems of energy healing , hands on and remote healing. They all use aspects of the universal life Force energy that Permeates the universe and the entire reality. This Energy is known by many names, Prana, Mana, Chi, KI, Orgone energy, Bioenergetic plasma, Divine breath, Cosmic Pulse, Vital Fire, among them. Even in those systems that call directly on spiritual entities, Angels, Healing guides and so forth, the actual healing is effected by aspects of the universal energy.
Most cultures seem to have at least one name for it even those that do not officially acknowledge it as real. Different cultures develop different ways of working with energy and different needs evoke different frequencies, techniques and explanations for that work. A Hawaiian system, a Tibetan system, and a Hindu system of energy work will each be different. Yet each still works with the universal life force.
Reiki is a system of energy healing that was discovered, defined and developed in Japan. Therefore It uses elements derived from Japanese culture such as Shinto, Esoteric Buddhism and the traditional medicine of Japan and China to explain how it works and to define its goals. The traditional definitions and explanations of Reiki practice have as an underlying base many of the accepted cultural premises of Japan. This may include elements which seem strange or opaque to people who have not been immersed in that culture from birth.
Reiki is not religious. There is no dogma involved with Reiki, well not much anyway. Most of what could be called Reiki dogma does not actually effect the practical use of Reiki in the real world. Being attuned to Reiki does not entail any conversion or adoption of spiritual beliefs or practices from any religion or particular set of beliefs. Reiki and other energy healing modes will harmonize with most spiritual belief systems that allow for the existence of energy work.
What Is Reiki?
The simplest definition of the word Reiki is Universal or Spiritual (Rei)- Life Force or Energy (Ki). The Reiki system is a simple and powerful system of energy work that anyone can learn to use for developing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual harmony and wholeness in themselves and for assisting others.
The practitioner uses the Reiki energy to help people move & balance energy, remove blocks and repair tears in the aura and help restore well being. Advanced practitioners are able to give treatments without touching the recipient and even send treatments great distances, even to people on other continents.
Reiki is a system of energy healing from Japan using methods transmitted to and received by Mikao Usui, legendarily at the end of a 21 day fast and meditation in Japan.
Reiki is a simple and powerful system of laying on of hands and remote healing that can transform lives. The Usui System of Natural Healing was introduced to the West by Mrs. Hawayo Takata, from Hawaii, who received Reiki Attunements From Dr. Hayashi.
Dr Hayashi had a Reiki clinic in Tokyo. Mrs. Takata was visiting relatives in Japan and had successful treatments for a chronic illness at Dr. Hayashis' Clinic. Dr. Hayashi is credited with formalizing the system of hand positions and levels for use in a more clinical health oriented practice. Usui Sensei intended his system to assist people to become enlightened. Physical healing was a side effect rather than the end goal.
The ability to heal physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual imbalances with energy channeled through the hands has been viewed as a rare and mystical gift requiring great spiritual achievement. However this simply is not true. Reiki is almost as easily learned as learning to tie your shoes. However spiritual advancement is required in order to strengthen and solidify any healing abilities.
Reiki is not a substitute for Medical treatment nor is it a diagnostic system. Reiki is an intelligent energy of love and wholeness. When you use Reiki you find many more ways to work with and gain value from it. The possible ways and systems for working with universal life force energy are infinite.
Advancements From Original Usui Reiki
Dr Usui never intended his form of Reiki to be a complete system but rather a work in progress. He left the system open with the intent that in later years it could be added to and advanced beyond, which is precisely what has happened.
There are now many forms of Reiki in existence with many specific healing goals ranging from Gold to Kundalini, Ethereal Crystals and Herbs. Probably the greatest advancement yet from the original Usui System is that of Advanced Mahatma Ascension Reiki.
Advanced Mahatma Ascension Reiki is a powerful system designed to allow the receiver to slowly, over time heal and ascend towards the 352nd level (Source/God consciousness). This is a new and rare system whereby very few have attained the 352nd level (of which i am one).
The Mahatma Journey is profound and eye opening, of which i will write in my next post.
