In our practice we do not offer Reiki healing on it’s own. The Reiki energy comes into play in the hands on therapy we offer such as Bowen and /or reflexology therapy.
Reiki is a universal energy available to all and is passed through the hands of the therapist to the receiver when the hands are laid on the body with the intention to heal. If you know you would like us to incorporate Reiki into your treatment then please let us know before the treatment starts.
Reiki is passed on through to the client with the use of intention.
Sometimes during a treatment you may be asked if you would like to receive Reiki healing.
REIKI SYMBOLS, THE MEANING AND METHODS OF ACTIVATION
The Japanese Character of Reiki
In Second and Master Levels of Reiki you will have access to the Special Sacred Reiki Symbols and words. These are handed down from Master to Master and are used for attuning other initiates into your Reiki linage. But more importantly they can be used for healing and protection.
Reiki Symbols are a means of focusing your attention in order to connect with “specific” healing frequencies.
Using different symbols will boost up the Reiki energy.
THE SYMBOLS USED IN USUI REIKI II
CHO KU RAY
Alias: “The Power Symbol”
Meaning: “God and Man Coming Together” or “I have the key”
The primary use of this Symbol is to increase Reiki power. It draws Energy from around you and it focuses it where you want to.
Make the sign over the client (or yourself) and say (silently) the words Cho Ku Rei 3 times.
It is the all-purpose symbol. It can be used for anything, anywhere;
* For on the spot treatments
* To cleans negative energies
* Spiritual protection
* On food, water, medicine, herbs
* In sick rooms and hospitals
* To aid manifestation
* To empower other Reiki Symbols
* To seal energies after the treatment, etc.
If you wish to use the symbol to bring Energy to yourself, reverse it.
SEI HEI KI
Alias: The Mental/Emotional Symbol
Meaning: God and Man Coming Together or Key to the Universe
It is used primary for mental/emotional healing and calming the mind. It is very good for:
* Psychic protection
* In meditations to activate Kundalini
* To balance the right and left brain
* Aid for removing addictions
* For healing past traumas
* Clears emotional blockages and aligns the upper chakras.
* Remove negative energies and bad vibrations
Sei He Ki restores emotional balance and harmony.
HON SHA ZE SHO NEN
Alias: The Distance Symbol
Meaning: The God (The Buddha, the Christ) in Me Greets the God in You to Promote Enlightenment and Peace
This is the Distant Healing Symbol and it is used to send Reiki over distance and time (past,present, future), to anyone and anything.
It is also drawn when sending a distant attunement.
Basic Reiki for self-healing and healing others
Simply the act of placing the hands on oneself or on another person activates Reiki energy naturally automatically. Just think of the time you hurt your knee or leg and then placed your hand on your knee or leg to calm the pain, you were doing Reiki on yourself without realising it.
You would usually start with drawing the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, Sei He Ki and Cho Ku Rei symbols over the client, three times for each symbol.
Then you start channelling Reiki energy through your hands to yourself or to the recipient’s front of the body, knees and feet, neck and head. This enables the energy to flow right to the source of the problem and not just the manifesting symptom. Reiki energy goes to where ever the recipient needs it most. Remember not to force where the energy is going, just let it flow through you to your client.
During a typical session place your hands on the different locations of the body for 3-5 minutes each, or hold until you feel you should move your hands away (use your intuition). Cup hands slightly, fingers holding close together, the lighter the touch the better. You or your client should be lying down comfortably on a treatment table or sitting on a chair if they so wish.
REIKI LEVEL I At this level the person is permanently attuned and connected to the Reiki source of healing energy. Once initiated it allows a person to performing healing on oneself and others. It requires no special invocation or alteration of the thinking process to “turn on the flow” of Reiki. By simply placing the hands and opening the heart to love, one automatically brings in the energy.
The First Degree is the foundation for all three degrees, and should be mastered first before the person considered for the next level.
Reiki level I deals with physical issues.
REIKI LEVEL II The person is attuned again to better connect with energies that heal mental and emotional issues and that can travel across any distance and time. You can practice sending distance healing to your friends and family, even animals.
The power symbol learned can be used to help focus energy for specific purposes. In order to receive this initiation, one must have been previously attuned to Reiki I.
