is a system of natural healing founded in the early-1900s
in Japan by a man named Mikao Usui. The system
exploded into popularity in the 1990s and continues to
grow exponentially with millions and millions of people
all around the globe and of every faith practicing this
system for personal or professional use.
The spiritual simplicity of
the system allows it to be embraced by virtually every
religion on the planet. All types of people, from
pagans and new age mystics to Catholic priests and nuns
are actively practicing this system of spiritual and
Reiki is based on the idea
that our human form consists of a physical body, a spirit,
and a complex system of energetics that serves as a bridge
to link the spirit to the body. When the energy
system becomes blocked, stagnant, deficient, overloaded,
or otherwise disturbed, the system does not function as
well. This breakdown creates challenges in the
communication between the spirit and the function of the
physical body, and health issues can occur more easily in
this state of susceptibility.
Reiki is a gentle system of
"laying-on-of-hands" energy where the
practitioner is trained to tap into the universal life
force energy and directs it specific regions of the energy
system. In doing so, the energy system becomes more
efficient and works with greater fluidity and ease.
In this state, the body's natural wisdom can more easily
take over and restore health more rapidly.
One of the most powerful
concepts of Reiki is that the energy is guided by a higher
power... a spiritual wisdom. It is not the
practitioner who is doing the healing. Rather, the
practitioner is just the bridge or the channel that allows
the energy and the wisdom of this spiritual consciousness
to do its job. This means that the practitioner does
not need to understand the disease or injury process, nor
does he need to understand the healing process. The
energy takes over and does the work! Therefore, you
can't cause harm using Reiki, and it has proven itself
time after time to always provide "right"
Reiki is easy to
learn. The beginning level can be learned in just
one day, and at the completion of that training, the
student has the knowledge and skills to be effective (of
course practice is always needed to be more effective).
