The Wisdom of Reiki Healing

Reiki (pronounced, Ray- key) is "Hands on healing"

It is a very powerful treatment. Reiki treatment heals the whole person including mind, body, emotions, and spirit that include relaxation, feeling of peace, security and well being. The Practitioner channels the energy from the higher source, and universal life force energy flows through the laying of hands on specific points of the body relating to organs, meridian lines and chakras. The Recipient's chakras are cleansed and balanced, bringing the Recipient to a wonderful state of grounded relaxation. Sometimes your main energy centres (chakras) are out of balance.

Reiki Symbol



The word 'chakra' is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel or disc'. There are seven primary or main chakras in our body. The primary chakras influence your health greatly; the health problems related to them are caused by an unbalance in the chakra itself, from an emotional or spiritual cause, which can manifest into a physical ailment. Each chakra relates strongly to a specific part of the body, specific emotions, mental, and spiritual concerns. Balanced chakras means Happiness & Health. Universal love, energy and knowledge flow through the charkas.

Reiki is Spiritual in Nature but is not attached to any Religion or Beliefs

Reiki can never harm. It can be used safely on all ages and all people. Much research has been carried out on Reiki energy and it is used in Hospitals, prisons, rehabilitation centres and hospices to enhance treatment. It is pure energy and always creates positive change.

Reiki is a deeply relaxing non-invasive therapy that can work on stress related to relationship dilemmas, anxiety, depression, allergies, skin complaints, post recuperation from physical injury and balance the emotions. It can also help break dependency on tobacco, alcohol, drugs etc. Reiki removes emotional blockages in the body and harnesses the body's own healing ability, restoring harmony and balance in mind, body and spirit.

Reiki also open doors to opportunity and help your life start to flow. Reiki is the consciousness of God and will always act where the receiver needs it most. The giver is able to revitalize, replenish and balance the body's energy.

The word Reiki is made from two Japanese words

Rei means "God's wisdom or higher power"
Ki means "Life force energy"
Reiki is "spiritually guided life force energy"

Reiki Attunements

When you are attuned to Reiki energy, the channels are opened to universal life energy. Reiki attunements are much like tuning a radio to a desired station.

We all have Universal life force energy, which is very essential for our health and life

Reiki has three levels:  Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Master level.

Level One Reiki Students learn:
History of Reiki
Grounding and Meditation
The Reiki Principles
Level Two Reiki Students Learn:
The three Reiki Symbols
Healing others
Distant Healing

Level Three (Reiki Master) Students Learn:

How to pass Reiki Attunement
The Reiki Master Symbol
How to teach Reiki to others.

Reiki is not something you have to learn how to do, as with other healing and spiritual techniques. It is the process of attunement or initiation, which awakens your dormant ability to access and use your Reiki energy.

When you are attuned to Reiki, the one of the many benefits is not only Reiki gives you energy to heal others, but also you are able to use Reiki to heal yourself and it will allow you to slow down and listen to what you are telling yourself.

You have a more positive outlook on life. People often experience a new clarity about their situations to get their life on tract.

Reiki replace poisonous, negative, critical thoughts with thoughts of purest love, harmony and understanding.

"One cannot hope to create peace and harmony until he has peace and harmony".

It is generally recommended that you have four to six full Reiki treatments to experience the full benefit. One treatment is ok too; however once you have felt how wonderful it feels, you may want to come back again and again!

Whatever complaint you may have, the effect of a course of Reiki treatment seems to make you feel more 'laid back' calmer and less stress and better able to cope.

Reiki boost your energy levels, and makes you feel more positive about things.

Reiki Precepts

Just for today:
I will not worry
I will not anger
I will do my work honestly
I will be kind to every living thing,
I will give thanks for my many blessings
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer
Pray these words to your heart
And chant these words with your mouth.
Your life will unfold like a beautiful Lotus
                        The Founder, Dr Usui Mikao
                        Dedicated to the wisdom of Reiki.
