Today, I thought we would talk about Reiki, an ancient healing art that is used to treat emotional and physical pain, as well as clear away negative energy.  

You don't have to believe in it for it to have an effect on you. It is not a religious or hypnotic practice of any kind. The purpose of Reiki is simply to heal using a neutral but concentrated force of cosmic energy.

Although Reiki originated in Japan, there many other similar energy practices that come from different cultures. Such as, Shamanism, Hands of Light, Therapeutic Touch, Rebirthing, and Faith healing.

To receive Reiki treatment, one must be fully clothed and comfortable. It is a specific placement of hands and transference of energy by the practitioner.

For someone to be a Reiki practitioner, they must receive an attunement. This is necessary to create a union between the Reiki energy and the practitioner’s energy.

The Reiki symbol is passed onto the student (practitioner) at the time of attunement and is always brought in for the opening and beginning of a session. There are symbols for emotional healing and long-distance healing as well.

When a person receives an energy treatment, they are receiving or restructuring life energy.

There are three degrees of Reiki. The first is when the student receives the first attunement. In Reiki two, there is a second attunement, and more in Reiki three.

In each degree, attunements increase the positive power of the student’s ability to channel energy.

It is the attunements themselves that are Reiki. Without this process, which must be passed directly from teacher (Master) to student, the healing system is not Reiki but something else.

Each attunement takes about a month to adjust to the energy in each student.

But this is really just the tip of the iceberg, so to say, when it comes to understanding the power of Reiki or any other type of energy healing process.
