The Ancient Healing Art of Reiki
with Reiki Master Linda Kaye
Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows through the body and deeply affects our entire being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. Reiki addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.
What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced “RAY-key”) is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. It is a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to as “Ki” in Japan, “Chi” in China, and “Prana” in India.
The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of Mikao Usui, who rediscovered the healing techniques of Reiki in early 20th century Japan. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness, including chronic and acute conditions. Gentle, yet powerful, it promotes holistic balance and therapeutic healing within the body, mind and spirit.
What is a Reiki Session Like?
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Still and focused, the practitioner will simply place his or her hands on or above the body. Though Reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound. Most people experience deep relaxation. You may also feel tingling, pulsing, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or you may fall asleep.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect.
Anyone can gain access to Reiki healing energy by the means of an attunement during a Reiki initiation carried out by a Reiki Master.
Reiki I initiations include the history of Reiki, receiving the attunements, and learning the Reiki hand positions used in healing. Having completed the 1st degree course, Reiki I practitioners can treat themselves and others.
During a Reiki II initiation the Reiki Master passes three Reiki symbols to the student through the Reiki attunements and conducts training and practice of the symbols received. These beautiful and very powerful symbols allow the Reiki practitioner the ability to offer distance healing.
Reiki III involves receiving the Master Reiki symbol and training. This training can take up to a year. Once master training is complete, the new Reiki Master can attune other people to Reiki and teach the three degrees.
What Reiki Can Mean For You
Reiki can alleviate pain and stress, and promote restful sleep, healing and relaxation. Relaxation in itself promotes a host of benefits for the mind and body including a heightened sense of well-being, release of painful muscle tension, and relief from anxiety and depression.
