Reiki, pronounced as ‘Ray’ and ‘Kee’, is an alternate healing system which works not only on physical level, but also on mental, emotional and spiritual levels. ‘Rei’ means universal and ‘Ki’ means life force energy. Same energy is called as Prana in India, Chi in China and Ki in Japan. The healing technique was originated in India by Lord Buddha in the form of various sutras. He was seen performing various types of healings on various occasions. But after that it was forgotten for thousands of years until Dr. Makao Usui from Japan re-discovered it at the end of 19th Century.
Out of all the healing systems of the world, Reiki is one of those healing systems in which there is no medications, no exercises, no side effects and above all the client is not supposed to be present with the healers also. This is an energy healing system in which an energy of highest frequency is sent through the healer to the client (the receipant) and the healing starts to take place. This energy healing system is also very easy to learn and practice because the power to transfer the Reiki energy is not attained through rigorous meditation and practice but it is transferred from Teacher (Reiki Master) to the student in a ceremony called ‘Attunement’ (Diksha in hindi) and can be learned in a class usually lasting one day. The International Center for Reiki Training has estimated that there are 4,000,000 people throughout the world who have taken at least one level of Reiki training. There are five traditional levels of expertise. Reiki Level I, II, III, Master and Grand Master. REIKI has been used to treat everything, from minor ailments and accidents to chronic diseases. It draws out and eliminates stress, promotes relaxation and speeds up the healing process. REIKI has been successfully used, alone and in conjunction with, other healing methods such as allopathic, homeopathic, ayurveda, acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, etc. It has been successfully used by therapists and lay persons alike. Those persons already active in the healing field receive an amplification of their healing abilities. Reiki is a loving energy, an energy with a sense of love, warmth and security. It makes no difference who is doing the treating. Love is the end result. REIKI moves towards balancing the being as a whole: both individually and collectively. Through using Reiki, life will become brighter and brighter.
Every human being is in a dilemma not knowing what can be the solution to keep him healthy, active and free from all sorts of illness. Therefore in search of health and happiness he goes in a whirlwind searching for right ways and means to keep him fit and in this search he comes across Allopathic, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Naturopathy or energy therapies Acupuncture, Acupressure, Yoga, Meditation etc. Isn’t it mind bugling? And mind you. I have mentioned only 10% of the total therapies available on the face of this globe.
When we choose any therapy, for example allopathic or ayurveda, we just keep on visiting doctors and spending time, energy and money to ease our ailment, which may or may not be cured, and if cured, will be only at physical body level and not at reason level.
Today everyone know that 98% of the diseases are psychosomatic (Psychological), so until and unless that psychosomatic reason is removed, the illness will keep on coming back because these problems are emerging out of the negative karma, viz, greed, lust, anger, jealousy and delusion.
The gift of healing rests within everyone. It is not the gift given only to a few. It is your birthright. Everyone can receive healing and everyone can learn to heal. Everyone can heal them self and others.
You have already been healing yourself, even though you may not call it that way or know about it. What is the first thing you do when you hurt yourself? You usually touch the hurt part of your Body, you may even grab it to help stop the pain. This physical instinct also sends healing energy to the effected part. If you relax and keep you hands on the injury longer then what you normally do, you will find an even deeper healing taking place.
Every mother touches, holds, kisses or caresses her children when they are in pain. She does the same for her other loved ones. If you take these simple reactions and begin to study them you will find that when you touch someone whom you love very much, there will be a stronger effect then if you are touching someone you don’t know. Most likely you have given your touch a special essence- the essence of love you have for that person.
When you are joyful, happy, energized or in any other kind of good mood, your touch will be more pleasant to other than when you are in a bad mood. These personal day-to-day experiences, which I’m sure, have taken place since we were cave dwellers, and which have grown in to the basis of laying hands of healing.
This REIKI energy is a total positive energy or a still better expression will be “the greatest vibration of life energy available to human beings.” This vibration has a divine quality, it allows us to make contact with the impulses alive in the world, thus conveying “oneness” with the inner self and source energy. All human problems like physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are ultimately due to illusion of separateness from the world.
Thus, Reiki is totally different from other healing therapies. This is only the therapy in the world which does not require any physical contact with the client and the client does not need to take any medication nor go through any exercises. Even when with the healer the client is not required to be touched in order to receive the healing. This healing can be given as far as six inches above the physical body when receiving healing in person and can be 10,000 miles away from the healer when receiving healing in absence. This healing system works amazingly but still according to the laws of Quantum Physics, which says that everything in this universe is made of the same energy and every energy can correspond with the other energy. And in this theory only Reiki Energy Healing System works.
Reiki is holistic, it works on the body mind and spirit by stimulating a person’s own natural healing abilities. Reiki is pure unconditional love and joy bringing all who experience and embrace it principles together in harmony.
Have faith on the divine energy and its healing powers. I have healed many a cases in the last couple of years. You don’t have to do anything for the healing. To understand this I will give you an example. See if you jump off a building, if you know the Law of Gravitation or not, you are going to hit the ground. It makes no difference if you don’t understand the Laws of Electricity, you just have to switch on the light and you conquer the darkness. Why is it so? Because there are some laws of nature and we understand it or not that works.
You just have to tell me your relaxing time or sleeping time, I will send you the energy during that time. But if at all, you can not provide me that also, still I can heal you but your relaxation will help me to connect with your sub-conscious mind well and you will receive the energy to the fullest. Rest Reiki will do its job because Reiki is a very intelligent energy and it knows what needs to be done. Therefore, just relax and let Reiki do the healings.
