What is Reiki?
The word 'Reiki' is formed from two Japanese words - 'Rei' which means "God's Wisdom coming from the Sun's ray" and 'Ki' which is "life force energy". So the word 'Reiki' means "spiritually guided life force energy".
Origin of Reiki:
Mikao Usui (15 August 1865 – 9 March 1926) was the founder of a form of spiritual practice known as Reiki. Reiki is used as a complementary therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional and problems with the mind.
Why would we require Reiki?
In order to live we need to have energy (''life force''). When we consider our energy levels, we can observe where our energy comes from and how well we maintain it. We can ask ourselves questions; do we have enough energy to sustain who we are and what we do? Do we get drained easily? How well is our life flowing? How is our energy spent? Are we in a state of beneficial life flow? We are not trained in managing our energy throughout our life, therefore people traditionally don't give this a great deal of thought. As a result we can overspend, mismanage or in fact lose energy, thus depleting our life force. When we become low in energy we can run into problems and become unwell.
What does Reiki do?
Reiki is a simple way to re-align ourselves to the eternal life force, enabling us to live a more balanced life. Balance is where we find strength and strength comes when we are healed.
You can align yourself to Reiki by becoming attuned by a Reiki Master or receiving Reiki healing from a practitioner. There are two ways to receive Reiki healing - from a distance or hands on.
We are all equal. It is important that both receiver and practitioner have an understanding of this. It means we must respect people’s freedom of choice; someone must agree to or request Reiki before it is given and a fair exchange must take place, equalising the balance of power.
A Reiki attunement is administered by a Reiki Master. Attunements have been passed down through the Reiki lineage dating back to Mikao Usui in Japan. An attunement is akin to receiving an energetic upgrade.
You will have to prepare by adopting a healthier life-style for two weeks prior to your attunement and you will find that the effects will be felt for over a period of around two weeks afterwards, whilst you accustom to the new vibration.
During the workshops you will learn about the Reiki energy and how better to manage the energies in yourself and around you. You will learn about the importance of flow and intention.
This will not only benefit yourself but also the people around you.
Each attunement has a different purpose:
Reiki Attunement 1 is about aligning yourself to the life force, self-healing and maintaining your own energy.
Reiki Attunement 2 is about your energy field, how it affects others and how you can apply the life force energy to another being, enabling them to receive and heal.
Reiki Attunement 3 is about self-mastery. You will have grown from levels 1 and 2 and are now taking a greater responsibility in mastering you energetic self. You will have gained a lot of insight from your journey in understanding the life force and are now able to effectively pass this knowledge onto others.
