Reiki is an alternative therapy that originated in Japan. Reiki treatment is based on the idea of possible activation of an unseen universal life force (Ki) energy (Rei) which flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is disturbed, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is balanced, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki practitioners believe that using Reiki they can transmit positive energy to a person, rising the vibrations, and that this life force energy has an ability to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Reiki is a way to bring one's life force energy back into balance.
During a Reiki session, a Reiki master holds their palms over the receiver's body. The Reiki master is able to open a channel for a transfer of energy, inducing a sense of peace and tranquility. In this state of deep relaxing, the self-healing mechanisms of the receiver's body are activated and the process of healing can begin.
Reiki has no dogma and there is nothing you must believe to learn to use Reiki or to receive Reiki. Reiki works with all religions and beliefs.
The ability to perform Reiki comes from receiving an attunements from the master teacher.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a method of energy transfer, which brings a state of deep relaxation in which the self-healing process starts.
Reiki is energy guided by the higher power that knows what vibration to use and how to act.
Reiki is a new way of living by addopting the following principles:
Just for today don't get angry (do not hold to it, but release it first)
Just for today don't worry ( it is not helpful the energy in your mind)
Just for today be grateful (to all and for all)
Just for today work hard (first on yourself)
Just for today be kind to others (and treat your body and your mind as parts of a sacred temple)
During a class we discuss how reaIistic is to make an assumption that the above rules might be applyed in our lives, and what their real meaning to us is. The rules may represent the final and ideal state of mind to which we normally journey. We are learning how this journey itself becomes a reward, not necessarily the final ideal state of mind to which we may not even arrive. From my experience it is a fascinating road, on which I, myself, stumble quite often and need to find a reflection that I lost my own Presence. At that time I need to return to the present moment of being with the appropriate correction. "Just for today" statement may also bring some questions.
Do you think that you may live up to above principles? Do you feel that you have a right to express yourself even in an angry way, or rather allow yourself to be angry for a moment and initiate a release? A process of releasing anger can be a hard work on yourself. Can you see any contradictions here? Let's discuss.
