What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of healing and is actually now believed to be thousands of years old. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy, the energy which is in and all around us.
One aspect of Reiki I find wonderful is “it knows what to do” sound strange? Maybe. Reiki is a subtle yet profound energy.
The History and Origins of Reiki are very much varied from Teacher to Teacher and from practitioner to practitioner (even in the “traditional” circles.) So far I have learned Reiki From a total 4 Reiki Master Teachers and have learned and experienced much with each Reiki Master. I find the discussions and controversy over what is “Traditional” and what is not interesting. One of my Reiki Teachers and friend Diane Ruth Shewmaker Author of All Love explained same class was never taught twice. Ahh ha! Maybe this explains it. (To me the effects and results are what is important not the rules)
Got Reiki? Someone who “Has Reiki” has been attuned and has learned from a Reiki Master the Reiki system of healing. The Reiki that most of us in the west know today was brought here by Ms. Takata. She traveled to Japan and learned from Dr. Usui. Even though Reiki is much older than previously thought the form of Reiki that most of us know here in the west~ we call “Traditional Reiki Usui Reiki”
Considering this discussion on the history and origins of Reiki and stating that “Reiki, knows what to do” is true. I have found a distinct difference in the quality of energy from Reiki Practitioner to Reiki Practitioner. I am still uncertain why this is so, perhaps it has to do with my own attunement to who is giving the Reiki or the energy generated. I’ll share any new insights I receive about this So if you are seeking a Reiki Healing Treatment simply follow your intuition or try to get a referral to a reputable practitioner in your area.If you wish to learn Reiki it is, even more, important to follow your own inner guidance and find a Reiki Master that you feel drawn to. This is another article and possibly a book but, I believe it is very important to learn from someone that you feel drawn and guided to rather than the price is right.
