I utilize Reiki, Young Living essential oils, crystals and other natural modalities as a way to create more beauty, joy, harmony and peace in your life. This is why I call it Energy Medicine. In this day and age it is not so much about healing others as it is about raising your own vibration and holding a steady clear light. By doing this you will become a healing presence for yourself and others. Reiki will assist you in raising your vibration, and as you do this you will be contributing to the light and peace on the planet.
The Definition of Reiki
Reiki (pronounced Rey-key) means Universal Life Force energy. When the word Reiki is broken down, the words can be translated as: Rei meaning "Universal, All Knowing, Inner Self or Higher Power" and Ki meaning "Life Force".
Ki is the energy that runs through every living thing at all times. In Chinese it is known as Chi. One could call it a spiritual energy system, but not a religion. Reiki utilizes symbols to activate this Universal Life Force energy and to help it to flow through your hands as a healing modality. As I have played with these symbols and experienced their healing power I believe that the Reiki symbols are actually keys to unlock energy patterns that are blocked or frozen, thus creating more flow.
A Brief History of Reiki
There are many different versions of Reiki available today. The common thread that runs through all accounts of the history of Reiki is that it comes from the ancient Sanskrit texts. Sanskrit is the mother-tongue of all other languages. The Vedas (ancient spiritual text) say that Sanskrit is the language of the spirit world.
Reiki was translated and brought through in a form available to us as the Reiki symbols by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in the early 1900's.
Usui was on a mission to discover the healing power that was used by Jesus Christ and other great healers. As he was studying the Sanskrit writings he discovered this healing modality and called it Reiki.
After Usui awakened to the healing light of Reiki, he was able to heal people. He then traveled all over Japan and China healing and teaching his people. Usui taught approximately 16 Reiki Masters or teachers. One of the men was a retired military man, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Dr. Chujiro then taught a woman named Mrs. Hawaya Takata. She became a powerful healer and teacher initiating many Reiki Masters.
In 1970 Mrs. Takata was charging $10,000.00 for a Reiki Masters Initiation, which then became the going price to become a Reiki Master. This price remained the going rate throughout the 70's and into the 80's. The Reiki Masters she attuned then charged the same price to others. This price prevented many people from learning Reiki. There was a lot of secrecy around the symbols and the whole process of learning the symbols. It is because of Mrs. Takata and many others that there are now thousands of Reiki Masters throughout the world.
An expansion of Reiki occurred in 1995 when Diane Stein wrote a book called Essential Reiki. In this book she released the symbols and all the secrecy around Reiki. Many Reiki Masters were very upset with this, but she felt this information was needed in order to awaken the healers to do their work.
Shortly after this many Reiki Masters published the symbols on the internet, along with all the Reiki teachings. Learning Reiki through distance healing became very popular. People were now able to receive the teaching and initiations of Reiki at a much lower cost than the original price of $10,000.
Learning Reiki through distance opened up Reiki to a new level and helped it to become a useful healing tool for many thousands of people throughout the world. Reiki continues to grow and evolve. There are many different types of Reiki available now, and they all originated from the teachings of Mikao Usui.
Reiki is similar to Religions in that it provides principles to follow, however, it doesn't make any claims to being a Religion or the only way to reach enlightened states of consciousness. Reiki is now becoming main stream as many seek a more rich and balanced lifestyle.
