The term “Reiki” comes from two distinct Japanese words. The first, Rei means “Divine Wisdom” or “Divine Power”. The second word, Ki means “Life Force Energy,” or the “Vital Human Energy” field. Collectively, then, Reiki is a spiritually guided life force.
Reiki, or rather the technique of Reiki, developed in Japan in the year 1920, but was not brought to the United States until the year 1937 by Mrs. Hawayo Takata. It was crafted by a Buddhist monk by the name of Usui Mikao.
Usui Mikao believed that Reiki was more a tradition than a practice and promoted it as such. Reiki involves the healing of the mind and body, yes, but it also preaches living in total peace with oneself, and being aware of your own unique purpose.
The real out come of practicing the system of Reiki are the precepts. No anger, worry and fear, feeling humble, honest and compassionate to ourselves and others ~ Frans Stiene
How to use Reiki
During a Reiki session, the patient remains clothed and the practitioner’s hands hardly touches the body, or not at all. Patients who have undergone Reiki have reported feeling extremely relaxed, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during the process.
There are also many recipients that have experienced significant and substantial help by receiving a Reiki treatment via a long distance session. An experienced Reiki practitioner will be able to transfer flowing energy from themselves to their patient, regardless of distance. This is why Reiki is known as a practice of spiritual guidance, because physical proximity is not necessary to receive the full benefits of the treatment. Distance Reiki sessions are a wonderful healing option for those who may be isolated or who do not have an experienced Reiki practitioner living near them.
Just for today, do not anger. Do not worry and be filled with gratitude. Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people. Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer ~ Mikao Usui
Reiki sessions can be used to treat a variety of ailments. Reiki treatments are becoming increasingly more popular and present in hospitals and clinics, due to the popularity and effectiveness of the treatment.
