What is Reiki?

   Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
   The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

History of Reiki.

Throughout the history of mankind, healing methods have always existed which were based on the transfer of Universal, all-pervading, life energy-the same energy which brings forth all life in the universe and nourishes it. Thousands of years ago, the Tibatians already possessed a deep understanding of the nature of spirit, energy and matter and used this knowledge to heal their bodies, harmonize their souls and lead their spirit to an experience of unity. This knowledge was guarded and preserved by the mystery school of most ancient cultures and was available in its entirety only to very few people, usually priests or spiritual leaders who in turn passed it on to their disciples by word of mouth. The knowledge of REIKI would have remained lost for ever had not Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered the key which led to the recovery of a thousand-year old tradition of healing in 2500-year old Sanskrit Sutras at the end of 19th century.

How can one learn Reiki?

The Key to REIKI is its simplicity. The real difference is in the attunement (also known as Initiation) Process, which the student experiences in the various levels of REIKI classes. During the first degree seminar (approx 8-9 hours, spread over a period of one day), a series of four attunements are given by REIKI Master. In the process, certain of energy centers, also known as Chakras, are opened to enable to the person to channel ( and vibrate) higher amount of Universal Life Force Energy. After this, one can lay his/her hands on other person and help accelerate the healing process by transferring REIKI.The other person draws in just the right amount of this life force energy through the hands of a REIKI Channel that he/she needs to release, activate or transform the energy of the physical and mental bodies.
   REIKI is a natural system of great simplicity, since nothing other than your hands are required to carry it out. Where other forms of therapy may demand months and years of training for the practitioner, REIKI can be taught in a week-end. After having been through the attunement process, most nurses, doctors, massage therapists, and people well acquainted with the touch and feel of the human body, notice immediate increases in the amount of energy or the feeling of heat emanating from their hands when doing treatments. Immediate relief can also be attained for all kinds of complement all other kinds of healing methods.

What are the effects Of Reiki treatment?

One of the greatest benefit of REIKI is self-treatment. Once a person is attuned, he or she need only have intention to do REIKI on him, her, self or others, and the energy is immediately drawn through on its own accord with no further intense focus from the practitioner needed. It is an extremely effective technique for total relaxation and stress release. One is filled with a sensation of peace, vitality and joy, often combined with a pleasant feeling of security and of being enclosed in a fine sheath of energy. Treating oneself also helps to release withheld emotions and energy blocks. REIKI works holistically.
   REIKI not only can effect changes in the chemical structure of the body, by helping to regenerate organs and rebuild tissue and bones, it also helps create balance on the mental level. REIKI is a wonderful tool to help one develop conscious awareness, the very key to enlightenment. REIKI affects each individual in a very personal way, the result is determined by the needs of the person being treated. Some common denominators which seem to result from the treatment.

The Meaning of Karuna Reiki.

Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translanted to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as "compassionate action." When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.
   Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing is quickened as well.
