Can anyone learn Reiki?
Reiki is a natural part of life. It is not something only accessible to a special few.
Why do I need
training if it is natural?
Reiki is a natural energy that flows through us all as a natural part of the harmony of life. However, the stresses, strains and worries of life over time and generations has greatly restricted the flow.
During training you receive several 'Reiju' that Usui sensei discovered. This clears the clogged 'pipe' and allows the energy to flow much more freely.
The training is also needed to teach some comprehensive theory. This helps your treatments to be more effective. For example, you learn how to read where to put your hands and how long to keep them there to ensure the right places are receiving the most energy. You also learn about different physical issues and how to treat them most effectively.
What will I learn?
There are two practitioner levels in Jikiden Reiki.
The first is Shoden, where you learn everything you need to know to treat yourself and others physically.
You also learn first aid, a Japanese meditation technique to help the Reiki flow and a massage technique.
The second is Okuden, where you learn the powerful and effective method for treating psychological issues, addictions and habits you want to move through.
You also learn how to use Reiki to help people who are not physically present.
Why learn Reiki?
People learn for many different reasons including:
to help a family member with an illness
to help children with first aid and ailments
to keep themselves and loved ones healthy
to treat an ongoing injury
to help themselves or others cope with stress
to go deeper into the spiritual in life
to help ground and support themselves
to help reconnect with the 'tamashi' or soul
Usui sensei's memorial stone reads:
"The purpose of this Reiki method is not solely to cure diseases or serious illnesses. In today's rapidly changing society it can be challenging to maintain a peaceful heart and mind. The spread of this Reiki method would help enormously to stabilize society and calm people."
