Reiki is a technique that accelerates the body’s ability to heal physical ailments, and can also be modified to address the mind and spirit. It does this by allowing the Reiki person to gather, focus, and direct energies into a specific area of a person, addressing the root cause of the disease, pain, or mental unbalance. Reiki empowers people to take responsibility for their own health, life, and joys of well-balanced wellness. Anyone can be taught Reiki as long as they have a sincere desire to learn it and use to for the benefit of all.
The word Reiki is Japanese and is a combination of two words, Rei (pronounced “Ray”) meaning Universal and Ki (pronounced “Key”) meaning life force energy. So combined Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key”) means “Universal Life Force Energy”. This “energy” is not mysterious or mystical at all. It is simply the energy which is all around us and in us and is often described as the unseen force that makes living thing – alive. For example if you have ever been to a funeral wake, the person in the casket looks and feels like an empty shell. That’s because the “Ki” is not there any more.
Modern day Reiki was born out of the experience of Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Christian educator who, in the late 1800’s, responded to the challenges of some of his students as to why the people of the day could not do the great healing phenomena that the great spiritual leaders (Buddha, Krishna, Jesus) of the past performed.
The ancient healing system of Reiki, based on ancient Sanskrit writings, was uncovered to him after extensive travel and study. Today, the Usui System of Reiki, as it is called, continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who are trained in the original traditions of Reiki.
The “Reiki Practioner’s Philosophy” to live by...
Just for today do not worry.
Just for today do not get angry.
Earn your living honestly.
Honor your parents, teachers and elders.
Show gratitude to every living thing.
What is the difference between Reiki 1, 2 and 3?
In a Reiki 1 class, the students are taught the history, origins and philosophy of Reiki. They are then attuned to tapping into the Reiki energy and how it is suggested that they use Reiki in their own lives and in service to others. They are taught the basic hand positions of Reiki which are used in Reiki treatments. Class time is set aside to have each student practice the hand positions under supervision of the Reiki Master. The students will also learn the hand positions for self-treatments and have the opportunity to administer and experience a full-body self-treatment.
The attunements occur in our (4) ceremonial acts shared by the Reiki Master with each student.
Reiki 1 is the starting point for those interested in pursuing Reiki further and for those interested in self treatments or treating one’s own family and close friends.
Prerequisites: Openness, sincere desire to learn the art for the betterment of all.
A Reiki 2 class is the next step a person would take after completing Reiki 1. Typically, a minimum of 6 months between classes is recommended, with exceptions being addressed on an individual basis. Advanced techniques are taught for sending the Reiki energy at a distance and for furthering the mental, spiritual, and emotional healing processes of individuals.
Reiki 3/Master Level
The Master classes are designed for those that want to teach Reiki to others. Instruction is given on the Usui system of attunements as well as the Tibetan system and several variations. Over half of the class time is used for practice so the student becomes confident in administering Reiki attunements.
Students practice giving attunements on each other so that each student receives many attunements. The Healing attunement is given and received by all students, which makes the class a powerful healing experience. A class manual is included that shows detailed steps for giving the attunements. While the content of the class will allow anyone to pass the ability to do Reiki on to others and to teach if one chooses, many take the class for their own use or to use with family and friends. This class is a powerful healing experience.
