Lightbulb Reiki

OK, so who else out there is a Reiki person?

I've done Reiki 1, and so far I tend to use Reiki for my own personal benefit, having done only a handful of treatments on others. Very often I try to send distant Reiki for various people and situations with varying degrees of success. Eventually I'd like to go further through the degrees and maybe even offer treatments on a professional basis. Recently I've been getting the feeling that this is how my development should go - by helping others in this way.

When I started Reiki, my teacher warned me that it could bring about changes in my life, and that was certainly the case. Within a few months of my attunement I knew that I had to move house, though there was no rational reason to do so. My partner and I moved out of London to Hampshire and are very much happier as a result

I find that the energy of Reiki fits very well with the energies of Spirit; essentially they are both manifestations of love.

So, at what stage of Reiki are you? How do you use it?

Love and Light

Jeremy

Smile reiki

hi i got my reiki degree 1 too, im gonna try and take my degree 2 sometime soon.

i dont really use pure reiki for anything, i mix it in with my own type of healing to make it stronger, my own hybrid :)

I do do a good bit of healing on others now, and when i leave school i want ot make it my job, its a very profitable bussiness too. but healing others is always worth it :)

Hi silver swan. I'll try to explain as best as I can, but as with anything of this nature it's difficult to pin things down into words!

In its pure, Japanese form Reiki uses the infinite "soul" energy of the universe to heal mind and body with no reference to a god or the healing powers of angels or spirits, though in the west it is quite common for practitioners to use spirit guidance in order to direct the Reiki healing.

Reiki energy can be used by anybody who has been attuned by a Reiki Master, thus opening up their channels in order for the energy to flow. There is no pre-requisite to believe in anything spiritual to be able to use Reiki.

It's my understanding that spiritual healing relies on the healer using his or her own energy, thus depleting their own reserves and necessitating re-energisation. With Reiki you are simply channeling energy that originates elsewhere, so the practitioner doesn't lose his own energy. In fact, by channeling the Reiki energy the practitioner himself, as well as the recipient, benefits from it.

Hope that all makes sense!

Love and Light

Thankyou Jeremy for your reply. I am interested in healing and have begun to learn about spiritual healing through a spiritualist church. I believe that the healing I send out comes through me but not from me. I protect myself when healing so as not to pick up illness myself. My cousin is a reiki healer and has begun to teach through workshops. I have always wondered about the differences . However it sounds as if the two are very similar. I wonder if the vibrations feel the same. How long does it take to complete the training?
I have never experienced reiki myself but whilst in a development circle I received spiritual healing. I felt very peaceful and calm and felt a tremendous surge of wellbeing.

Hello again silver swan

I was interested that you said the spiritual healing you give involves energy that comes through you rather than from you. In that case I had misunderstood how spiritual healing works, and you have my apologies. Reiki and spiritual healing must be even closer than I had imagined!

As regards how long it takes to train in Reiki, in theory you could receive the attunements for the different degrees one after another and be a Master within a matter of days, however I don't think anyone would advise this. Once you've been attuned to any one particular level it's a good idea to become comfortable with your new energies and give treatments to yourself or others to bed yourself in, as it were. Most people leave a few months between Reiki I and II. I have to confess, it was over a year ago I did Reiki I, but a number of things have happenend in my life recently that have taken precidence over further training. I fully intend to do Reiki II at some point, though

Having not been there yet, I'm on unfamiliar ground talking about higher levels of Reiki. Perhaps as a teacher, Medicineman4 could take over and patch up my shaky knowledge, as I wouldn't want to misinform anyone!!!

Love and Light

Jeremy

Hi Auricman,

In the traditional system of Reiki, Usui tradition founded by Mikao Usui, there are 3/4 degrees; 1st, 2nd and master practitioner/master teacher. Master practitioner/master teacher are generally taught as two separate levels. There are quite a few new traditions which have emerged as a result of Reiki masters channeling different energies into their traditional practice and assimilating different energy healing systems with Reiki. The list of new traditions seams to grow by the day, (look up attunements on ebay) however these are the main ones;

SEICHIM/SEICHEM/SEKHEM/SKHM/NEWLIFE REIKI SEICHEM

This tradition, originally called seichim, was created by Patrick Zeigler (lineage: Mikao Usui>Chujiro Hayashi>Hawayo Takata>Barbara Weber Ray), when he recieved a spontaneous initiation during a night spent in the Great Pyramid at Giza. He studied Reiki in the USA under Barbara Ray and used the Reiki attunement process to pass on Seichim. Seichim is the ancient egyptian word for ki, chi, prana etc.

THE RADIANCE TECHNIQUE/REAL REIKI

Barbara Ray (lineage: Mikao Usui>Chujiro Hayashi> Hawayo Takata), claims that Takata gave her 6 (some say) 7 Reiki attunements which she trade marked as the Radiance Technique, (originally called Real Reiki).

RAKU KEI REIKI

This system was deveped by Arthur Robertson and Iris Ishikuro (lineage: same as Barbara Ray), it incorporates the Johre or "white light symbol" and includes techniques such as breath of the fire dragon, hui yin breath and the kanji hand mudras (the first time they had been used inconnection with Reiki). This was also the first system to teach about the chakras in conjunction with Reiki.
I've got to get off the computer, more later....
