Reiki is a form of therapy administered through touch. This can be achieved by channelling energy through the palms of the hands on the body. The auric field or holding a sample of DNA. Reiki is used to promote the bodies healing process on an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual level. The therapist practitioner allows this energy to be transmuted to the client; it then depends on the client how much of that energy is used and in what areas. Reiki is an intelligent energy and will integrate itself where it needs to go connecting with the ‘higher’ and ‘true’ self. Throughout each individual Reiki consultation the client always exercises the right to free will.
Reiki is perhaps the best known of the therapy energy modalities. There are different levels to Reiki and they are learned by stages. Each stage gives us the opportunity to perceive ourselves and where and what stage we feel we are comfortable with. Holistically we get the very best from Reiki by being true to our own uniqueness and really integrating with the level/s of training and how we value each attunement and energy change. As we work with Reiki healing energy, Reiki healing energy will work with us connecting with compassion, motivation, a good heart and wise mind.
I achieved attunement to Reiki & Seichem 1st Degree November 2003, attunement to Reiki & Seichem 2nd Degree May 2004 and Reiki Usui Shiki Ryoho Master Teacher Degree in the Reiki Method of Natural Therapy March 2008. This ongoing period of learning enables me to love myself for me and love what is around me. Reiki has helped me understand and see the uniqueness of others, family, friends, neighbours, humanity and the world.
Reiki came to the west from Japan with the help and guidance of Dr Mikao Usui (1865-1926). There are many linages to Reiki; my own journey came from Reiki Seichem and from Reiki Usui Shiki Ryoho. But whatever the linage there is only one Spiritual Reiki father and that is Dr Usui, he is the focal point by which Reiki touched and entered the present dimension.
The word Reiki is made up from two Japanese words: ‘Rei’ meaning power or spirit from the universe and ‘Ki’ meaning life force. Hence Reiki being known as ‘life force energy’. The five Reiki principals are about responsibility and the impact our actions and thoughts hold and how they are perceived by humanity and the world we live in.
- Just Today
- Do Not Get Angry
- Do Not Worry
- Show Appreciation (Or Be Grateful)
- Work Hard (On Yourself)
- Be Kind to Others
I have written the Reiki principals in fired stoneware clay and the small panels are positioned around the garden in groups. When I garden I can change the principal daily and think on the responsibility of “who I am”, the impact my actions have on my family, friends, clients, life environment and humanity. Every day, whether I am swimming, walking, gardening etc. I try to focus on a different principal and make it a part of my daily life.
Holistically we get the very best from Reiki by being true to our own uniqueness and really integrating with the level/s of training and how we value each .
Whether your life seems lacking or you live life to the full and whether you are a soul, spiritual seeker, a single minded materialist, experiencing a period of introspection, depression or adapting to change, Reiki embraces and enriches. The energy which permeates the cosmos is divine wisdom and truth. It transcends time, space and all religions. It is enjoyed by people of many faiths and of no faith. Reiki promotes positive living and compassion for all.
Visualise your higher crown chakra, put your arms in the air above your head; bring the tips of your fingers together, visualise this as where your higher crown is situated. Fill this chakra with pure white light, visualise your crown chakra, this is just at the top of your head, fill this with pure white light, bring this down your arms to your hands and breathe in the energy from the Universe. Close your eyes and place your hands either side of your tummy button. Keep breathing in this pure white light and when you feel relaxed let the image disappear. How relaxed do you feel? By utilising this simple exercise you will start to feel a deeper understanding of the energies this life has all around us. Reiki is just one of these energies.
