So since I got my holy fire reiki 1 and 2 placements over the weekend, and hope to offer a reiki service on the site soon, I thought it would be good to talk about what reiki is.
How does reiki work?
Reiki is an energy that exists beyond this world. It goes beyond time and distance. When one is attuned to the reiki energy you can channel the reiki energy through your hands (palm chakras) and give that energy to yourself or others.
What is the purpose of reiki?
The purpose of reiki is to heal yourself spiritually, physically, and mentally/emotionally. The reiki energy is used to balance and align your chakras which in itself helps your soul, mind, and body. The energy can also focus on other body parts and organs to help heal those as well.
What does it feel like to receive reiki?
Everyone experiences reiki differently. Some people feel nothing but relaxed. Some can feel the energy unblocking their chakras. When I receive reiki I feel a tingly sensation where the practitioner is working on me. Some people see visions, or hear voices. I know some people who start floating off the table. You can be visited by various parts of the universal energy source. I find people often see the universal energy source in the shape of angels but as someone who doesn’t believe in angels I think they they would present themselves differently to me.
How does long distance reiki work?
The way it was explained to me was that picture our souls being connected to a cord that extends past our world to a place where distance and time does not exist. When you administer reiki long distance the energy travels to the start of the cord where there is no time or distance. It travels through the cord and then heals the soul it was meant to heal in our world. So not only can reiki be done long distance, but it can be done to someone in the past or future.
Do I need to take classes to do Reiki?
Some believe you can learn through books on your own but most believe you have to be taught. There are ignitions and placements you have to complete. There are also secret symbols to learn from a teacher. So while some believe you don’t have to learn from a teacher it is agreed that you must learn some way or another. You can’t just do it randomly.
What else should I know about reiki?
Reiki can not cause harm no matter what. You can do Reiki on someone as long as you have their souls permission. So say you want to do Reiki on your child who can’t speak yet, if you ask their soul and their soul gives you permission then you can do Reiki on them.
Reiki has no religion. It is thought of as a pagan concept these days I think, but what do you think Jesus (the real Jesus, the healer, not the one Christian’s talk of, God’s son) was doing? Some form of reiki, even if reiki wasn’t its name then. He was healing with his hands.
Your intention with reiki is what is most important. Your symbols don’t have to be perfect and your hand placements don’t have to be either. As long as your intentions are clear reiki energy will do what needs to be done to help heal the person you are giving reiki to.
And as always, when you are done doing reiki (like when you are done with a sacred circle or a Ouija board for example) you must close the persons energies and let go of the reiki energy. When you are done doing reiki you align the chakras, you remove any psychic waste in the air, and you thank the reiki energy for helping and release it. You do this to make sure the person who received reiki will stay safe because you never know what negative energies are lurking around waiting to feed on someone’s new energy.
After a Reiki session you should drink lots of water and expect to have a deep sleep and possibly some very vivid dreams.
