We are born into this world with deep seeded knowledge of the Universe and what we need out of it to truly live it to the fullest, most fulfilling way we can. Somehow we forget all that universal knowledge as we grow-up and acquire all the tools we need for adulthood but still our souls have a calling, even nagging, pull to something we can’t put our fingers on. Enter Tao – the primordial essence or fundamental nature of the universe- it is truly the “knowing” of life. Reiki Masters for thousands of years have answered this calling in hopes of giving back, healing, and filling their own void.
Reiki, for those of you that do not know, is a Japanese energy healing modality. The word itself is made of two words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” Mikao Usui had a profound Reiki healing session when he was in meditation on top Mt. Kurama and received the spiritual pull to provide others with the life force of the universe.
It is much better to give this power widely to a lot of people in the world and enjoy it among them than to keep it exclusively
Usui made the experience a way of life for himself and his students (myself included) by implementing the 5 Principles (Reiki Golden Rule) that we all follow today:
So there is no confusion, Reiki is not a religion it is mode of spiritual growth that lets you tap into the Higher Power and benefit from the flow of healing energy that is all around us. Everyone has the ability to harness this life force. The studying of Reiki allows you the ability to channel the natural flow for relaxation, peace of mind, and healing. There are 4 Levels that the person progresses through and each building on the other to create a complete Master.
Level I teaches you how to feel and connect to the chi while you concentrate on healing yourself. It is true what they say, you must take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else. This level takes roughly 6 months to complete because the student is reiking every inanimate object they can get there hands on, as well as, themselves. Once your Master feels you are proficient in the flow and not blocked anywhere, there is an attunement that is performed that gives blessings of the Reiki symbols and gives gratitude to the Higher Power.
Level II is where you are allowed to start working on others while continuing to working on yourself. Why so much working on yourself? We pick up others people energy, emotions, and junk every time we preform the healing act. So washing your hands and clearing yourself is very important. This level roughly takes 6 months to complete. My Master actually printed out client contact forms for me to complete and gave me a task of completing 25. This is also the level that you start working with the Reiki symbols, which until recently, where only allowed to be memorized and there was no written record of them. Once you have completed the tasks of this level there is another attunement to set the students intentions and align their vibrations.
Level III is where it starts getting fun and you learn that Reiki flows through all dimensions of space and time. This level roughly takes a year to complete and you work with performing distance healing and learning to work with this levels symbols. While in this level, you learn to put a healing into the “Bank” to be pulled down later by the intended person, past life healing, the sky is the limit in this level. After you have played then you get another attunement to full receive all the Universe has to offer.
Level IV is the teaching aspect. This level takes about a year and a half and prepares you to share all that you have gained on your journey with others through all the attunements, all the symbols, all the meditations, and all the clearings.
I do have to say that that I am proud to say that I am a Reiki Master/Teacher because I have definitely grown into a better person and feel that I can give back to the Earth and humanity. I was truly blessed when I was called to my Reiki Master and dear friend. She assisted me in finding my way out of a very dark place and put me on the loving path that I have been traveling for the past 10 years. I am know blessed in finding my own voice and strength to bring this to all of you. I have decided that within the next few months I am going to open up to holding classes online and fulfill my duties of spreading the this healing love. I have a goal of enriching the lives of 1 million people. There I said it!!!! 1 MILLION people full of Reiki and spreading healing energy from a place of love and gratitude!!! And since there is always a Call to Action, share this with the ones you love, get a group that wants to learn, scream it from the mountain tops, and let me know your in 🙂
Remember, Not All Who Wonder Are Lost. We are simply trying to touch as many lives as we can!
And as always much love to you xxx
