REIKI IS NOT
is not a religion as it holds no creed or doctrine. It has nothing to do with
spiritualism or the occult in any shape or form. It has nothing to do with the
calling up of ghost or demons, nor is it concerned with hypnosis or any other
kind of psychological techniques. To practice REIKI no special no special kind of faith or belief is required.
In REIKI treatment, use is made solely of
natural but concentrated form of cosmic energy.
HOW IS REIKI LEARNT
key to REIKI is simplicity. Where
other forms of therapy may demand months and years of training for the
practitioner, REIKI can be taught in
a workshop of 3 days, each of 4-6 hrs each. What makes REIKI different from other healing methods is the „initiation“
process which student experiences in a REIKI
course. During the initiation process, a Reiki Master transmits energy to the
student in an amplified state which accelerates Life Force Energy. The energy
acts in such a way that it creates and open channel for cosmic or universal
energy. During the REIKI treatment
the energy flows through this channel out through the hands.

series of four initiations are given by Traditional Reiki Master. After this
process of initiation, one can lay his/her hands on one self or on another
person and help accelerate the healing process by transferring REIKI through hands.
REIKI is a natural system of great
simplicity, since nothing other than your hands are required to practice it.
After having been through the initiation process most nurses, doctors, massage
therapists and people well-acquainted with the touch and feel of the human
body, notice immediate increase in the amount of energy or the feeling of heat
emanating from their hands while doing treatments.
mental preparation or direction is needed to receive a treatment - only a
simple desire to receive and accept the energy.
One of the
greatest benefits of REIKI is the
possibility of self-treatment. Once a person is initiated he or she needs only
to have intention to DO REIKI on
him/herself 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.
oneself also helps to release withheld emotions and energy blocks. REIKI works holistically by creating a
balance between the body, mind and spirit. This practice touches all levels of
our human-ness: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The result of
receiving Reiki is enhanced health and well-being.

for the recipient. The other person draws in just the right amount of this Life
Force Energy through the hands of a Reiki Channel that one needs.
The Usui System Of Reiki is not only the most simple and natural healing method we
know of but it also the most effective way of transferring this Universal Life
Energy. Once a person has been opened up to become a „channel“ for REIKI, concentrated life energy will
flow through his hands on its own accord and he will retain this ability for
the rest of his life.
