After sharing on numerology for the past few articles, I'm sure all of you have an idea of how our birthday and name's energetic values determine our characters, destiny in this lifetime. In this and next few articles, I am going to give an introduction to Reiki.
Rei means "Universal" and Ki means "Energy", so combining the two words together will be Universal Energy. For all of you who have downloaded and read my free ebook "My Self-Healing Experience", you would have already experience the Ki energy when you performed the "Energy Ball" exercise.
Reiki is a system of healing and self-development created by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early part of the 20th Century. In its simplest form, treatment is given primarily by means of a structured series of touch-based interventions at specific points on the body. During a typical Reiki session, the recipient may experience heat, or become aware of tingling or pulsing sensations, as the healing Reiki energy radiates from the therapist's hands and begins to effect positive energy to restore balance throughout the recipient's whole being.
About Reiki’s Founder Mikao Usui
Mikao Usui (Usui-Sensei) was born on the 15th of August 1865 in Kyoto, Japan, in what is now the prefecture of Gifu. He is believed to have been sent to a Tendai Buddhist monastery school in 1869. At the age of 12 he began martial arts training. He would progress to the highest levels of proficiency in his particular art, achieving his 'Instructors Licence' in his 20's. In his late 30's Usui-Sensei married Sadako Suzuki. It is known that they had at least 2 children:
a son, Fuji (born 1908) and a daughter, Toshiko (born 1913).
It is said that in March 1922, as a result of undergoing arduous spiritual discipline (shugyo) on Kurama Yama (Mt Kurama) near Kyoto, Usui-Sensei experienced the phenomenon that is Reiki, and gained an intuitive understanding of how to work with Reiki as a medium for healing and self-development.
In order to learn Reiki, there is a process of Initiation or Attunement whereby a Reiki Teacher / Master performs an energetic transfer which re-patterns the student's etheric field. There are typically 3 levels of Reiki which I will elaborate further in the next article.
