Reiki: what is it and how is it done?
Reiki is a powerful method of Natural Healing which is based on the channeling and transmission of Cosmic Life Energy.
Reiki is a compound word of Japanese origin, because to a Japanese goes the great merit of having rediscovered and brought to light the technique: Rei means Universal Energy (Supreme Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the Universe), Ki is the Vital Energy that animates every form of life.
Reiki is an Energy of very high quality, the most subtle that can be contacted; it flows in unlimited quantities, triggering and accelerating a healing process, or better, awakening the self-healing faculty of our Being.
Reiki is a powerful method of Awakening of Consciousness, of personal growth and Spiritual Evolution.
It is an Intelligent and very subtle Energy that promotes the total energetic rebalancing, on a physical, emotional, psychic and Spiritual level, promoting in a non intrusive way the removal of the blocks that constrain the natural flow of Energy in our Being.
The practice of Reiki restores the original harmony and balance of the individual with extraordinary speed.
Reiki is totally devoid of side effects and can be combined with any other technique or therapy.
Reiki stimulates our most positive qualities such as love, trust, understanding, creativity and enthusiasm. Enhances personal energy, intuition and sensitivity.
Reiki can be used to purify crystals, food, medicines, environments, situations and relationships.
It is possible to treat people, animals, plants, objects … Mother Earth! Reiki is Energy of Love and everyone can receive it, if they are ready.
The Reiki operator acts as a channel for Cosmic Energy (Rei), which flows, through the hands, towards the recipient, naturally, softly and unlimitedly.
Reiki treatment helps:
- – Relax and release all tension
- – Relieve stress, emotions and negative thoughts
- – Relieve joint, muscle and migraine pains …
- – Relieve drug side effects
- – Accelerate the healing process of wounds and traumas (physical-psychological and emotional)
- – Detoxify the body, both physically and thinly
- – Heal from addictions
- – Restore a perfect emotional and psychophysical balance
- – Healing from insomnia and depression
- – Strengthen your talents and abilities
- – Feeling at peace and in love
- – Have much more energy available
- – Meditate
- – Activate / upgrade your faculties
Obviously the speed of the path of re-equilibrium varies from person to person and from case to case. The more entrenched is the energy block, the longer it will take to loosen it. One should not be in a hurry when working on oneself, and above all one must have the will to work on oneself, with Love, without judgment, facing those aspects of one’s life (which therefore depend on our inner attitude that the world sends us back ) that are no longer in harmony with our new vibrational state, which disperse energy, dealing with what can possibly put our transformation and evolution into resistance, consciously.
Reiki is a journey within Himself and within the Universe, a marvelous journey extremely moving, full of Love and Awareness.
The knowledge and teaching of Reiki are handed down, as per tradition, from Master to student through particular energy procedures: the Initiations. Through Initiation the energy channels for channeling Reiki are cleaned up and reactivated, allowing the student to practice Reiki independently, on himself and on others.
To become Reiki channels, 1st, 2nd, 3rd level and Master operators, it is necessary to receive the relevant initiations, that is, to follow an initiatory path of reopening and cleaning the energy channels naturally present in each of us, congested or obstructed. due to their inactivity. The initiatory path restores our natural ability to channel energy, it is a real reconnection with our true nature of Multidimensional and Spiritual Beings as well as physical, a journey to rediscover ourselves, an Awakening from sleep, a return to Home, a re-tuning with the Creative Energy that permeates all that is inside and outside of us, because we are all One.
The Reiki levels
The practice of Reiki is divided into levels.
The FIRST LEVEL (Shoden): allows you to send energy to everyone and everything through contact: the operator imposes or rests his own hands. It is achieved through four activations performed by the Reiki Master, through which the Reiki energy opens the student’s channels, connecting it directly to the Energy Source.
The SECOND LEVEL (Chuden): involves a greater ability to channel energy, as well as the ability to send the same at a distance, beyond the boundaries of space and time, to treat people or distant things, present situations, past or future. It is achieved through a further initiation during which the first three Reiki Symbols are used.
THE THIRD LEVEL-MASTER LEVEL: today, from many schools, it is divided into two sub-levels, namely:
THIRD PRACTICE LEVEL (Okuden): in which initiation is received to the symbol of the Master but the ability to teach and transmit activations is not transmitted;
THIRD LEVEL MASTER (Shinpiden): the level of the teacher, in which the ability to transmit the initiations is transmitted, and the last two Reiki symbols are received.
It involves a further increase in the ability to channel, as well as learning the techniques to give activation / initiation to other people.
Some Masters do not teach the last two symbols because in turn they have not received them. I believe they are a great and further very powerful gift and, as I received them, they plot them in my turn.
The Reiki Symbols
The Reiki symbols are sacred and it is part of the tradition to keep them secret and confidential and to reveal them only to those who have received second-level or third-level initiation.
In reality, their representations can be found very easily today, just do an internet search. There are also gadgets and pendants with Reiki symbols.
Personally I have nothing in particular contrary to their widespread distribution, but it must be borne in mind that without the respective initiations that enable them to be activated, the symbols do not work.
The symbols by definition are particular signs, corresponding to universal contents or values.
The Reiki symbols, in addition to this, are real keys, which connect directly with specific vibrational frequencies, which open doors, and emanating a particular Energy, they go to work directly and powerfully on particular vibratory states, accelerating the healing process , as well as to enhance and intensify the flow of Reiki.
They can be traced with the fingers, can be viewed, and their name can be chanted like a mantra. They have a conscience of their own and it is possible to meditate on them and receive information on their use. All this takes effect only after receiving the relevant initiation, which directly connects the practitioner to the symbols and Cosmic Consciousness.
The first symbol is a catalyst of Energy, the second symbol is used in mental and emotional healing, the third symbol allows remote treatment. The fourth symbol is the symbol of the Master (Japanese) and connects with his own Higher Self and with the pulsating Heart of Reiki. Those who finish the course by becoming a Master will receive two other symbols: the symbol of the Master (Tibetan), and another Tibetan symbol, very powerful to move the Kundalini.
A further enrichment in the use of symbols and strengthening of the channeling is obtained with the Initiations at Karuna Reiki®.
Between Mysticism and Science
The recent discoveries of quantum physics have confirmed and are confirming what the mystics of all times and of all cultures and religions of the world have always supported.
Everything is made of energy! The matter is composed of 99.9999% of energy and 0.00001% of matter. Everything is made of energy in motion, everything vibrates. What we perceive as solid is nothing but energy that vibrates at a certain frequency. The Creator Energy of which all creation is composed manifests itself in its different forms according to the wavelength and frequency of the vibration it emits. It has been discovered and demonstrated by luminary scientists that the Light, the Energy, behaves both as a wave and as a particle, that everything exists in the potential state in the quantum field and manifests itself at a certain point in space-time at the moment and in the place in which it is observed. What we call reality, to manifest itself needs Consciousness. Which is Itself Energy. And we co-create it depending on where we focus our attention.
According to the one commonly known today as the Law of Attraction, we attract events that resonate with the vibrations we emit ourselves. If we emit disharmonious vibrations such as anger, resentment, fear and so on, the Universe will respond to us with events that will resonate with these vibrations. If we tune in to harmonious frequencies such as Love, Gratitude, Joy, etc., the events that we will experience in our lives will respond to us with the same frequencies of Love, Joy and Gratitude.
