The Word 'Reiki'?

As humans we enjoy Universal Life Force all around and within us. The Japanese word “Rei-Ki” (Ray-Key) consists of two syllables:

"Rei"

Which describes the Cosmic, Universal aspect of this energy, it can also be interpreted as higher knowledge, or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from the higher Self, connected to the Source, which is all knowing. It understands each person completely. ‘Rei’ knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows how to heal them.

"Ki"

Which means the Fundamental Live Force flowing and pulsating in all living things. As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it. When it dies, the Life Force departs.

We carry in us a certain amount of “Ki” that we consume in the business of ordinary daily life. Thus, we have to create a daily supply of new energy. When we are unable to compensate for the energy consumption for a prolonged period, we may become physically ill. If our supply of life force energy is very low and depleted, we suffer physically, mentally as well as emotionally, and tend to be much more irritable, bad-tempered, and depressed than usual.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a gift from the Universe available to all of us.

Learning how to restore healthy energy levels by means of Reiki is an efficient way of self-healing for many health problems. Everybody can do this.

Reiki is a simple, direct and natural form of healing that allows you to absorb more life force by applying a gentle hands-on and hands-off technique. The energy flow can be received from a practitioner or you can learn Reiki for self application.

Reiki as a method vitalizes your Life Force and balances the energies in your body.

 The natural healing energy flows in a powerful and concentrated form through the hands of the person providing Reiki.

The natural healing energy flows in a powerful and concentrated form through the hands of the person providing Reiki. The positioning of the hands directs the healing energy into the body of the receiver (also called ‘channeling’). The Reiki practitioner (or yourself once you master the technique) is used as a channel to conduct the Universal Life Energy. As a result, no personal energy is drawn or drained from the giver, who in contrast will be simultaneously charged and strengthened during the session

then it is very easy to become a channel for the Reiki energy. Interestingly, even individuals very skeptical of Reiki experience the channeling of energy nonetheless, and often call it warmth, love or peacefulness. Reiki induces and maintains healing of many deep-rooted issues and often relieves pains and acute symptoms very quickly. It also has a positive influence on spiritual growth. After a treatment, you may feel mentally much clearer and experience deep insights into particular questions or problems you are facing. Reiki can then help you to make the right changes and decisions in your life, bringing you to what you need or want to achieve.

The benefits of Reiki

Reiki involves your body, mind and soul and aims to integrate all these aspects into a harmonious balance. Reiki supports your spiritual growth, enhances personal awareness and intuition. Reiki generates relaxation and reduces stress, allowing the body to heal from within.

A major advantage is that in learning how to apply Reiki one is not dependent on others for healing.

Reiki is not a treatment that just addresses symptoms; instead it gives insight into underlying problems that cause unwellness in the first place.

Reiki will work in conjunction with any other treatment to relieve side effects and will promote recovery from illness, accidents and surgery. It engages self–healing capacities in many conditions like chronic fatigue, allergies, as well as in psychological problems like phobias, depression, anxiety, coping disorders and addiction.

History of Reiki

Traditional Usui Reiki Ryoho
USUI Mikao Sensei (1865-1926)

Founder of Reiki Ryoho (healing method).

Traditional Usui Reiki Ryoho

In 1915 Suzuki san starts her training with Mikao Usui. Many more followed over the years. His teaching has changed over the years. We do not really know when he started with energy work. In 1923 Mikao Usui introduced symbols into his teaching.

March 9th, 1926, Mikao Usui passed away from a stroke, while he was traveling, in Fukuyama in the Hiroshima Prefecture. Usui Sensei's grave-site and his memorial stone are located at the Saihoji Temple of Jodo-shu or the Pure Land sect of Japanese Buddhism in Tokyo. (In the West, Usui Sensei is said to be a Christian minister and president of the Christian based Doshisha University in Kyoto. Of note that he was from the beginning to the end a lay Buddhist.)

Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment?

Most of the time a person will feel positive, relaxed, energized and uplifted after a Reiki treatment.

However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache, a runny nose, coughs or tiredness. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, drink no alcohol, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.

How many treatments should I have?

There is not really a set number. Every person and his/her reason is different. Some people only require one or two sessions while others need several. If you are just interested in seeing what the Reiki energy feels like before learning, one session can be sufficient.

I recommend to have three treatments in 14days to get a good charge of Reiki. In this setting you can see how Reiki is affecting you. Often I hear often from clients that they like the effect of Reiki and they start to learn Reiki. 

If you have a chronic problem you want to work with Reiki regularly. Again the best way to do so is learning Reiki yourself or to come to see a practitioner weekly.

If you like to talk about your situation, just send me an email and I can give you a call to discuss this with you.

 

How much does a Reiki session cost?

Is there anything that I have to be aware of when receiving a Reiki session?

If you can take it easy after the session, have a rest, drink more water as usual, and stay away from excess alcohol and caffeine.

Reiki may trigger the body’s natural release response, such as runny nose, coughs or tiredness. They are all normal healing responses but if you are not sure, contact your practitioner.

Location for Reiki treatment and for Reiki courses

The Reiki treatment and the Reiki courses are given at my place in Floreat, where I have a room connected to the house which gives us privacy and a quiet space.

If the Reiki treatment or course is done via distance than you can stay in the comfort of your home. For the course you need to have good internet connection and for a treatment you can be wherever you feel comfortable to be.

There are no limitations on how often you can use Reiki.

You can use Reiki as a treatment for yourself and or just 5-10 min here and there. Over time Reiki is a part of your live and you will use it even without noticing.

Is online training beneficial?

Oh yes. First I must say I was skeptical too, all the technique and computer. As soon as I gave it a go I realised that I was able to set it up in the same way us a training at my place and that it could be even very convenient for many people to do the training in this way. I also find that the feeling of closeness, oneness can get very strong in distance training groups.

You will learn Reiki in the same way as you would be here in one of my classes, you can ask me questions and we can discuss subject. It is a live interactive Reiki training.

Will I be a healer after learning Reiki?

You will be a healer for yourself. For others you will be a 'tool-giver' or 'facilitator'.

With giving Reiki you provide Reiki to the receiver. The receiver will be able to use the Reiki energy to heal themselves. 

Will the Reiki attunement work over distance?

Yes it works very well. The people I gave a distance attunement to Reiki in an online training could feel it very strongly. The Reiki energy is very powerful and does not know distance in the way we do.

Reiki treatment or attunements/initiation work very well via distance.
