Today, I thought we would talk about Reiki, and introduce an ancient healing art that is used for emotional, as well as physical pain and the clearing of 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, or treatment of any kind. In Reiki, use is made solely of a neutral but concentrated force of cosmic energy. Every living thing and being has energy. 

For someone to be a Reiki practitioner, they must receive an attunement. This is necessary to create a union between Reiki energy and the practitioners energy, the process being an exact formula. It originated in Japan. There are may names for energy healing from different culture. For example, Shamanism, Hands of Light, Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Rebirthing and Faith healing. No matter the technique, healing occurs on some level by life known as Prana, Mana, Rauch, Barraka, or Chi. 

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

The Reiki symbol is passed on the 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.

Each degree, attunements increase the positive power of the students 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,

This is really just the tip of the iceberg so to say when it comes to Reiki or any energy healing.
