Reiki Basics: Foundation For Beginners

“For Healing to Occur There Must Be a Shift in Consciousness and an Exchange of Energy” – Dr. Mikao
Reiki is an ancient Spiritual and Healing Practice discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui from Japan. Dr. Mikao Usui received the enlightened wisdom of Reiki healing energy on Mount Kurama in Japan in the 19th century during an extended fast and meditation. A great wellspring of Reiki energy issued through the spark of his enlightenment. Dr. Usui recovered the ‘lost’ knowledge of how to access and transmit the life force energy, which we now know as Reiki, through hands-on healing.

The word Reiki consist of two parts:
REI which represents the Higher Intelligence, the Divine, or the Power that guides all beings and the entire Universe.
KI which is the Vital Life Energy. It is the Energy that gives Life to everything in this Universe. In India, this is known as PRANA and in China, it is called CHI.

In simpler terms, Reiki can be translated as the Spiritual Guided Life Energy.

Most people coming to Reiki want to use it as a healing technique or as a profound relaxation method. That’s perfect, however, Reiki can and will go much deeper than that. It will always work on the Physical, Emotional and Mental level, and at the same time, it goes deeper into the Spiritual level. This means that Reiki can also be used as a self-mastery tool to change your Life and change you as a person. Reiki teaches you how to really love yourself and bring you back in alignment to your real Self.
Take Reiki as being a Big Bright Light. This Light is something that we are all born with and that each one of us holds inside. As we grow up, unaware of this inner Light we start throwing on it shades and shades of gray, dimming the light slowly. We start layering it all up with anger, worry, frustration, doubts, and fears. This Big Bright Light is still Bright, no matter what we cover it with. If you cover a light bulb with a blanket it will make the light seem dimmer, yet in reality, the bulb is still shining just the same. Reiki is a tool that we can use to start unfolding each unwanted layer that we built through the years to bring us back in alignment with our True Self. Coming back home to our Big Bright Light and discovering that our Light still shines the same. We just need to become aware of it and keep coming back to it time and time again no matter how many times we get distracted by our worries and fears.
Reiki heals everything that needs to be healed. This can go from daily life problems to future issues or traumas from the past. Reiki works directly on energy blockages. Very often we do not express emotions like anger, worry or fear and decide to keep them all inside instead. We tend to suppress our emotions. Blockages in our body and our spirit are created when such kind of emotions are not released. These blockages are called energy blockages. Energy blockages lead to illnesses and further doubt and worry. These blockages are released with Reiki.
Some of the many benefits of Reiki include:
  • Balances the body’s energies and chakras
  • Fosters peacefulness
  • Helps calm the mind
  • Releases emotional holds
  • Enhances natural healing
  • Directs positive outcomes
  • Eases tension and stress
  • Relaxes tight muscles
  • Promotes pain relief
  • Strengthens spiritual connection
  • Adapts to individual needs

To begin, start allowing the Reiki energies to find their way to you. Be open to receiving. If an opportunity to experience Reiki presents itself, then take it. The fact that you are here, reading this, is also a sign. Trust the universe. It might seem scary to receive a Reiki treatment the first time but know that nothing can go wrong. The Reiki energies know where to flow and what to do to bring you back in alignment and set you on your righteous path. Flow with it and let it pave your own way to healing and to unlocking your life’s full potential.

Reiki works as a hands-on treatment whether in contact with the receiver or thousands of miles apart. It is scientifically proven that people in different continents on our planet can tune in to the same vibrational frequency and sense each other. Think of it like radio channels. A radio channel emits its frequency that can be tuned in to and listened to from across the globe. Likewise, even though our minds might not know, the vibrations that each of us emits are powerful enough to be felt and sensed by each other. You might have experienced this yourself; think about a time when you were sharing space with a person who was sad or in a bad mood and you felt that energy too! Now imagine how much more powerful it can be when we set our mind and intention to these vibrations! Reiki works like that but in a positive way. The Reiki energies are pure and nothing bad or harmful can ever come out of something pure.

Experience this yourself at the safety and comfort of your own home. Find out how on the following link:
