Reiki, A Healing Touch

Reiki, pronounced (Ray-Key) is a hands on healing art which involves the channeling of energy through the hands for the purpose of healing the body, mind spirit and emotions. It is not a religion or creed. It is simply a healing energy that transforms and uplifts all who come in contact with it. It allows the practitioner, through attunement, to connect to and channel Reiki Ray of Spiritual Consciousness and Unconditional Love.

The Japanese meaning of Rei is universal with the focus on the soul and spiritual dimensions. Ki means vital life force energy (which flows through all living things). Reiki, is the combination of the two characters, and means universal life force energy. This energy can be safely used anytime and any place.

The attunement to the Reiki Healing Ray is accomplished through initiations. There are three levels or degrees that the initiate is attuned to; each one strengthening and deepening the healing channel. Reiki attunement creates an internal transformation in the initiate. It transforms and balances the heart chakra (which deals with the ability to give and receive love, the awareness of the oneness of all being and the ability to hold compassionate detachment).

For every level or degree of initiation there is a subsequent 21 day integration period. During this time the Reiki Ray, which is of a very high and pure resonance, travels or cycles, through the chakra system, clearing and balancing it. Any areas of unresolved conflict or blockage are brought to the initiates attention at this time for recognition, resolve and release. The energy focus is then centered back within the heart chakra. Once made, the Reiki attunement is never lost. Channeling Reiki energy can be learned by anyone.

It is this internal transformation that cause Reiki to stand out, as different, from other forms of healing. It creates a quantum leap in ones conscious- ness level which causes a shift or change, on a body, mind, spirit and emotional level. Because the focus of Reiki Ray is spiritual consciousness and unconditional love (the core of the heart chakra), it will facilitate a change in the practitioners relationship to the world (both inner and outer) and affect every aspect, every action of one’s life.

Reiki is a laying on of hands. It is very simple to learn and there is no danger of inadvertently hurting or harming the client or healee. Reiki will sim- ply create the energy most needed to heal and balance the body, mind, spirit and emotions. It can facilitate healing the muscles, nerves, bones and organs and affect change in the chemical structure of the body. This is done by simply attuning to the Reiki Ray and allowing it to channel through the Practitioner and into the client.

Reiki healing is always safe and gentle. It can be used on newborns, as well as the elderly and severely ill. Reiki has been used successfully in hospitals for patient therapy. Anyone can benefit from Reiki. It is effective even when the healer is not directly touching the healee. You can even give yourself a full Reiki treatment.

Reiki was rediscovered in the 1800s by a Buddhist monk in Japan, Dr. Mikao Usui. He conducted a 28 year quest to discover the healing techniques practiced by Buddha. Through prayer, meditation and the study of many ancient Sanskrit texts, Dr. Usui discovered what he believed to be the keys to healing. It is these spiritual practices the Reiki masters practice and teach today. Reiki transforms the lives of all who come in contact with it. I believe it is the energy necessary to heal the planet and all its beings, which is why it has been brought to our awareness again at this particular time. Thank you, Dr. Usui!

How My Reiki Intensive Work

Mastership in a weekend? You bet!

Reiki is truly a gift from the universe and can easily be learned by all. The attunements you will receive plan the spiritual seed for the attainment of Masterhood …. you must then do the work and utilize the Reiki to have the seed that was planted bloom.

Hawayo Takata brought Reiki to the United States and is responsible for its development here. When she was asked what makes a true Reiki Master, her reply was, “You cannot receive Reiki too fast or too slow. What makes a Reiki Master is making Reiki your life.” I believe that Reiki should be made available to all who would benefit from it. Incorporating Reiki into every area and aspect of your life will take time and focus but is every students personal life’s work. The attunement creates the opportunity for enlightenment. The student must anchor it in their reality through correct action.

I have created this workshop in such a way that you will leave with all the knowledge you need to be a successful Reiki Master, as well as an understanding of how one can teach Reiki to others. You will receive two Reiki manuals and a Reiki Master certificate. Before each Reiki workshop I send out a message into the Universe that all Beings who can benefit from the tools and information contained in this Reiki Intensive, on a body, mind, spirit and emotional level, will be made aware of it. If you are resonating with this information, that probably means you! Becoming attuned to Reiki was one of the most profound experiences of my life and I know you will feel the same way, too.
