Hi Reiki is a hands-on healing art; the word Reiki comes from
two Japanese words - Rei and Ki,
meaning universal life energy or source energy. You become attuned
to using this energy with a
series of symbols, given to you by a Master...I look at those
symbols as a way of turning on a
light. The switch is there, but the symbols give you the knowledge
to turn it on. It's a wonderful
tool, but that's all it is. I personally don't know if it's
different from other kinds of energy healing
work. I do have my Reiki Master level...however, I've been using
energy for healing work,
taught to me by my Guides, for longer than I've been a Reiki
Master; I do things in my own kind
of way, so I am not a purist. It's a wonderful tool though,
it teaches you how to balance yourself
and others, how to ground, send healing to others, how to release
negative energies from
yourself...so it's a nice way of passing healing knowledge on
to many people. I'm not sure why
you'd get that feeling from people who do Reiki, no one should
be sending you energy without
Reiki, Source energy or Sweat Lodge energy, Christ Conscious.
Nov. 8th Star of David was a
powerfully healing energy. IMHO! It is All Love Energy from
whatever you call your higher
source. The key is whichever tradition you feel comfortable
with. I personally use all "Mitakyue
Oyasin" We are all related "Namaste" I acknowledge
the Divine with in you. But back to your
question, Kat did a great job. The Symbols are secret, but you
can find them on the web. I find
that I couldn't use them until I was attuned to them. But I
was already using Universal Life Force
Energy. I just couldn't turn it on when I needed. IMHO! It's
the same with any tradition, it's a
way to find Love energy and we all are different so we understand
differently. Reiki Plain and
Simple is my favorite teaching site angelreiki.nu/reiki/ Dr.
Usui had a question. Why could Jesus
heal? He went through many traditions which could not answer
that. He finally ended up on a
Mountain top (Vision Quest) and received the symbols being attuned
to them by Spirit. He
brought it to the poor people, but kept seeing the same people.
Concluding that without money
most people don't believe the worth of something. So he charged.
Hawayo Takat was the first
woman and the first American, the first person not of the elite
section of Japan to have Reiki. She
brought it to America, but sadly at a very high cost $10,000
to $20,000 *depending on which
story you read* I personally don't see how I can charge for
something that is Spiritual.
I have to agree with the others here, Reiki is a "method"
of use. I've used energy my whole life
and when looking into the study of Reiki I found it was only
a different method of doing what I
already did so I bypassed the study. My blood-sister who is
a Reiki Master has told me time and
again that I'm at the level of what would be considered mastery
in Reiki in my own techniques.
We've talked about that at length and so it's simply a focused
way to work with Source
Energy/Universal Energy...however you want to put it. I do feel
it is a very respectable path to
take for someone who is interested in learning a format to use
in healing techniques, and Reiki is
very substantial in the results people receive from sessions
with a Reiki Healer. It's great.
The "bounce" you get from those who are Reiki Masters
is more than likely their own energy
field signature. By this I'm talking about coming within 3'
of a person who is attuned to Reiki
with their strong alignment they would feel more spiritually
solid. Their auric field in other
words. The Reiki practitioner is very consciously focused on
alignment due to the kind of work
they are doing and they would be shielded against retaining
negative energies. You may be
feeling the bounce effect of yourself coming up against their
energy. Not a bad thing, just that
you're own energy awareness is becoming more pronounced and
you're noticing energy
signatures starting to manifest. IMHO
These Bears have the 7 Chakras, the Conception Vessel meridian
up the front and the Governing
meridian up the back. They also show B-20 the sea of Qi and
the Kundalini point. I will be
discussing these points in relation to Reiki and the 12 basic
Chakras are energy vortexes on the body. These vortexes allow
for a balancing of the body.
When they become blocked they created an imbalance. Energy sent
through these vortexes aligns
them to the body. This can be energy such as Reiki or as invasive
as acupuncture. There are
seven large chakras on the body. These are the ones I will be
addressing here. These are also my
understanding of them and are not written in stone.
The first three help in connection us to Mother Earth.
The Muladahara, base/1st chakra, sits between the legs or between
conception vessel-1 (CV-1)
and governing vessel 1. (GV-1) This is not a point that
is touched. By holding your hand
charged with Reiki in hand position #8 (loins) on the front
and #12 on the back the base chakra
can be balanced. This chakra balances our survival instincts.
Svadhisthanh/2nd chakra balances our pleasure and health. Reiki
hand positions #7 on the front
and #11on the back.
Manipura/3rd chakra balances our power. This is covered with
hand positions #6 on the front
and #10 on the back.
The heart is our center of balance
Anahata/4th chakra is the heart. The hand position #5 is placed
in a modest position as to not
make the client uncomfortable. This hand position also covers
the Lung and Heart meridians. On
the back, hand position #9 covers this chakra.
These upper 3 chakra are our connection to the cosmic.
Vishudha/5th chakra is the throat. In #4 position the hands
are cupped above the throat.
Ajna/6th chakra is the third eye and is covered with #1 hand
position. This hand position covers
the urinary meridian.
Sahasra/7th chakra is the crown isnt covered in the basic
hand positions. By bushing the CV
(conception vessel meridian) and the GV (governing vessel) upwards
allows the energy to flow
out and up toward the Creator. This motion is done at the end
of the session to brush the
Meridians are the flow of Life force energy that runs through
the body. The Conception Vessel
meridian runs up the front of the body. The Governing meridian
runs up the back of the body.
Starting at the Base chakra without touching the client, an
upward brush of the hand over the
body, up the front to the Crown chakra at the top of the head,
the Conception Vessel can be
aligned. The same is applied to the Governing Vessel up the
back, starting at the point of the
More Meridians covered by other Reiki hand position are:
position #2 is at the sides of the head covering the Stomach,
Small Intestine and Gall Bladder
meridians. Plus a few acupuncture points.
Hand position # 3 is explained below.
Covering the hands; The Triple Warmer, Pericardium, Small Intestine
and Large Intestine
In the feet; Large intestine, Spleen, Kidney and Liver meridians
Smaller energy vortexes are the acupuncture points. B-20 has
been known as the Sea of QI Qi
also being known as Life Force Energy. With the use of hand
position #3 on the back of the head
your fingers rest on this acupuncture point. Thus held ask the
client to breathe deeply 3 to 7
times. This relaxes the whole body and allows the Life force
of the person to become balanced.
Sometimes this will cause a gentle straighten of the spine.
Another energy vortex of the body is the Kundalini point/GV-1;
this is Creative Life Force
Energy. When released gently this energy will be a creative
force in the body. If it is released
with a trauma such as a fall or a forced exercise it can be
very disruptive to the body. Causing
feelings of loosing it. Grounding the excess energy
created in this way can help. Also a Reiki
session with attention to the flow of the governing vessel and
the balancing of B-20 will help
disperse this energy.
These are things I have learned along the way and explain to
me why Reiki works so well.
