Today’s article is about Reiki and how Reiki can improve your life and this is virtually the same regardless if you are a practitioner or the client.
In this article, I want to highlight something which has become clear to me during my practice.
The first thing to be said is that everybody is able to perform Reiki, even if you have not been officially taught. Now let’s make this clear because somebody here could be offended and somebody else could be misled.
Reiki by definition is a Japanese word the means ‘Spiritual Energy’, for the purpose of the affirmation I made above anybody can source his own spiritual energy from any source and frequency.
Point 2, Reiki is a discipline by which energy is passed from a body of a practitioner to a client through the position of the hands.
Now, have you ever hit your knee, head or even worse, your funny bone against something? I bet you have …. not funny at all, is it? No, it is not, I think. Anyway, what is your first reaction to what just happened? You put your hands straight on the part injured even if the bleeding didn’t occur. It is an instant reaction, we do our best to assist the part injured with a supply of healing energy coming from the extension of our body in this case such as arms and hands which are rich in meridians and minor chakras (energy channels).
Reiki it is innate in us, but what happened with the discipline, and this is when things get interesting. Reiki is the ability to connect with the spiritual energies in a better and efficient way so to be able to supply a stronger flow of healing energy. This is as simple as it goes. All the rest is dedication, patience, meditation and a lot of other Latin words ending in “tion” except ‘love’ which is the stronger drive in this type of healing discipline and realistically all the others.
Now, why is it important to receive healing energy even though we didn’t hit anything with our head? Because we are energy, we require a constant flow of energy in our bodies in order to perform the so-called life experience (at least in this terrestrial form) and also our pains and needs are not only limited to the purely physical form when you hit something. There are other complex forms of suffering such as mental pain, emotional pain, spiritual pain, but why do we just focus on pain? (Mostly because of Christian tradition) why don’t we allow yourself to feel good all the time or extra good if we are already good at helping the supply of energy even when we don’t touch rock bottom? Why do we allow yourself to always and only learn through the means of pain? That is somewhat necessary at times but we can do better than lift us up only when we are on the floor.. we can keep up for longer periods of time and still learn!
We need a supply of energy that can not only be from food and water.. we live of something else too and it is easy to locate this energy. It’s within you when you feel an emotion, you feel loved, you love someone and when you breathe. That’s some of the many manifestations you can attribute to it.
Next question is:
Where do we get this supply of energy from? The Universe … how? However, you like. Some prefer to follow teachers from far behind in the past with all sort of disciplines, prayers, mantras, meditation, techniques, breathing techniques, dances, exercises of all sorts. Reiki is one of these disciplines. It is a beautiful discipline, I attribute much of the wealth, abundance, clarity, health and beautiful feelings I have right now. Like everything else the best comes with practice so in any case if you are a practitioner or a client or both the more you practice it, the more you will be able to feel.
Reiki can create shifting results, help with clarity in making new choices, help with the removal of unwanted patterns, blockages or negativities in life. Reiki at first has been built as a discipline to lead to a path of enlightenment and that’s mainly what it is. The possibility comes as a consequence and determinant once worked on the five main precepts. This and a lot more is Reiki to me! If you want to add something to the list, help yourself, book an appointment, start a course and start a new adventure where you can be the protagonist together with everyone and everything else around you.
