(ray-key) is a natural healing technique that uses the
laying-on of hands. Reiki is thought to have originated
thousands of years ago in India from where it went to
Tibet alongwith Buddism. But the knowledge was kept a
top secret by a few for various reasons. Reiki was
rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddist monk,
in the 1800's. Usui wished to discover how Budda healed
the sick. During his ten year quest, he studied the
teaching of Christ, and the sacred literature of China,
Japan, India, and Tibet. At the end of his quest, Reiki
came to him on the sacred mountain of Kuriyama in Japan.
does Reiki means?
The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words - Rei
and Ki. Rei means supernatural force or spiritual
intelligence, Ki means life energy. Therefore, reiki
means "spiritually guided life force energy".
does it work?
We are alive because life force is flowing through us.
Life force flows within the physical body though
pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also
flows around us in a field of energy called the aura.
Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body,
supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow
of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished
function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the
The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings.
It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously
or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about
ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach
themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in
the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital
function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the
energy field and charging them with positive energy. It
raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and
around the physical body where the negative thoughts and
feelings are attached. This dissolves and removes the
negative energy. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens
and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life
force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
Reiki is an energy that comes directly from the highest
spiritual source. It has its own intelligence and knows
exactly where to go and what to do. It is
multi-dimensional and will heal the cause of a problem
on what level it may exist - body, mind, or spirit. It
does not have to be directed by the practitioner. It is
a very simple and powerful process that can be learned
by anyone. Because it is a channeled healing, the Reiki
practitioners energies are never depleted. In fact, when
giving a treatment, the Reiki practitioner is healed as
well and always experiences an increase in life force
energy. People that already do healing work report that
their healing energies increase by at least fifty
percent after receiving Reiki Attunements.
is a treatment like?
Reiki is given by the laying on of hands. A standard
treatment includes placing the hands on positions around
the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet. In addition, the
practitioner may use other positions for specific
concerns the client may have. Each position is held for
between five and ten minutes and the entire treatment
lasts between 45 minutes to an hour and a half. A
treatment is deeply relaxing and benefits both the
client and the practitioner.
Once you have been attuned to it, reiki can also be used
to treat yourself. Simply place your hands on yourself,
Reiki will flow into you and begin its healing work.
can be treated?
Reiki is both powerful and gentle and in its long
history has aided in healing virtually every known
illness and injury including serious problems like
cancer, heart disease, and AIDS as well as skin
problems, cuts, broken bones, headaches, colds, and the
list goes on and on.............
can learn Reiki?
Reiki is not taught in the way that other healing
techniques are taught. It is transferred to the student
by the Reiki Master through an attunement process.
Because of this, virtually anyone can learn Reiki with
no prior experience or ability necessary. The attunement
process opens the heart, crown, and palm chakras and
creates a special link between the student and the Reiki
source. Then its use is explained and demonstrated.
After that, all that is necessary is for the
practitioner to place his or her hands on the client
with the intention of healing and the Reiki energies
will automatically flow through the practitioner into
the client. Because of this unique attunement process,
Reiki can easily be taught during a weekend class.
it a Religion?
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a
Religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must
believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki
is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether
you believe in it or not.
Reiki is very versatile and can be used to heal or
improve any human condition or difficulty. In addition
to healing yourself and others, it can also be used to
protect from harm, help solve problems, and achieve
