Is Reiki Trying To Talk To You?

Article by Dhwani Parikh, Reiki Rays

From my 9 years of experience with Reiki, it is very intelligent energy. It is the one who decides whether to stay with you or not. It is the one who chooses you for healing. Let’s know how? When I was in my 6th grade, one of my friends learned Reiki and she told me about Reiki. But that time, I didn’t take this call. Afterwards, I grow up knowing many Reiki people, but I never took an initiative to learn about it. Suddenly, I have to go for my master to Italy and one of my friends told me to learn Reiki, so if anytime I am alone and can’t heal myself, I can do self Reiki. So, there were many calls from Reiki, but then I actually took it this time.

Because of so many times this happened,“Reiki” word heard by many people, I decided to learn it. I went and completed my first level with my master and it really worked. For the next 3 years, I never thought about this anymore, but keep practicing touch and self Reiki. And then I came back to India, there in my office, one of my colleagues told me that he is going to learn the second level on the weekend, would I like to join? This was my second call from Reiki. I went and learned all about the second level, with the different master as I was in different part of India. Afterwards, I started giving distant Reiki and become more confident about this and started healing friends and family members. And actually, they wonder about this. I keep seeing Reiki even more after this.

Then it was like 3 years after I was in Canada and went back to India for a vacation and suddenly I had my wisdom tooth problem. And the doctor told me to remove it, but then again, I found out that near my place, there is a master who is going to teach the third level Reiki. Again, it was blessing and I went there and learned the final level and it came as blessings. I canceled my surgery and for 2 years I didn’t do it. Reiki word also has a lot of energy. It calls you. If you don’t listen to it, it again calls you.Is Reiki trying to talk with you

Even after learning all the levels, it calls you for healing. It brings such events in life and it gives us a message to heal people. Also, many people see some numbers or patterns. Also, if you are seeing ambulance every day, that is also a call of Reiki. People who know Reiki or does Reiki comes to your life frequently is also indirect call from Reiki. If you are in the public place and hearing Reiki word or reading it anywhere that is also its call. Again, on the social media or in the digital world, if you are seeing this, again and again, that is also Reiki call. Everytime you are meeting a particular person, having things or events, that everything has some meaning in life.

If you are already a Reiki person, just keep all the senses including your 6th sense open; it calls you anytime for healing. This is very intelligent energy. Many people drop practicing it after learning the first level and never practice it. This article is for them too, Reiki needs people like you so it came to your life. So, please don’t ignore it. It is like blessing given by Dr. Mikau Usui and be grateful for this energy.

Thank you all the readers! Lots of love and light!

Disappearing Reiki Stones and Crystals

Article by Justine Melton, Reiki Rays

I have received a lot of questions lately regarding stones/crystals disappearing. This especially seems to be a problem with the stones that have been infused with Reiki. One of the biggest questions I get is, “Help! My special stone that I infused with Reiki has disappeared. I have looked everywhere for it. I don’t feel it’s a coincidence. What’s going on?!” If this has happened to you, you are not alone and are not crazy! Reiki stones have an interesting way of disappearing.

When I first learned Reiki I was introduced to stones and the healing properties they contained. My Reiki Master encouraged me to study different types of natural healing remedies so that I could offer myself and others the best healing energy possible. At that time I started researching stones and crystals and started combining their healing energy with my Reiki sessions.

One of the most fascinating things I learned was that stones and crystals (especially those infused with Reiki) have a way of suddenly disappearing and sometimes reappearing. They do not disappear to anger you or cause you stress or harm. Their energy is quite amazing. They in fact know when they are no longer needed by you and will go where they like! It took me about a year before I accepted that this was really happening. It happened to myself and others so often that I finally did my own case study on it.

Stones and Crystals

Below you will see the reasons that I have found that stones and crystals like to move on or reappear….

  • Stones/crystals have a mind of their own. If they do not feel energetically matched to you they will move on!
  • Some stones get along better than others. Their energy will naturally repel or attract other stones like a magnet. Moonstone for example prefers to hangout alone.
  • The healing energy they contain is all knowing like Reiki. This energy knows when it is no longer needed and in fact where it is needed. Do not be surprised if a stone feels its time with you is complete. It will suddenly disappear.
  • Stones and crystals may want to be kept in other areas of your home. You may notice that a certain stone keeps appearing in one area of your home even though you are positive you keep putting it away in another area.
  • Out of nowhere a stone may make an entrance back into your life when called to do so.
  • You may be getting help from the other side with what stones suddenly enter and exit your life.

Stones and crystals offer huge benefits when combined with Reiki. The important thing to remember is that the more powerful healing energy they offer (especially those infused with Reiki) the more you may notice them moving around or disappearing. Have some fun, don’t take things too seriously and just enjoy the beautiful healing properties they can add to your Reiki practice.

Wishing you love and light.

Feeling Disconnected From Reiki?

Article by Lisa Thompson, Reiki Rays

Sometimes you go through your Reiki training, become a master but then you haven’t done your self-healing of Reiki for quite some time.

You may be asking yourself how do I reconnect with Reiki? If you have received your attunement you are already Reiki active, it never goes away, the symbols are in your aura. Think about what is happening in your life at the moment, is this the reason you feel disconnected or is it just simply that you haven’t been practicing your Self-Reiki?

So how do you feel “reconnected”? Before you start giving Reiki healing sessions to others you need to go back to the fundamental practice of Self-Reiki. From day one you were encouraged to perform Self-Reiki daily or at least 3 times a week for Angelic Reiki so you need to build this practice back into your life style.

Schedule at least 3 Self-Reiki sessions in your diary starting from now, preferably every day but you can always build up to that.

Disconnected from Reiki

Find a time when you know you won’t be disturbed and follow these easy steps:

  1. Sit in a comfortable position.
  2. At the beginning of each session close your eyes and attune yourself to the healing by taking 2 deep breaths, Reiki lives in the breath.
  3. Let go of any thoughts or feelings you may be having.
  4. Dedicate the space to the highest healing possible for you.
  5. Visualise a place where you feel relaxed, it could be somewhere in nature.
  6. Place your right hand on your solar plexus and your left hand on your higher heart chakra.
  7. Hold the intention for the healing you want and then let go.
  8. Invite in the healing angels. Invite in the energies of whoever you work with.
  9. Breathe the Reiki into your body.
  10. This healing should take between 10-15 minutes or as long as you are guided.
  11. Ask the healing angels and whoever else you have invited in to start taking the energy away by moving behind you.
  12. Take two deep breaths to let the energy drop away.
  13. Ask Archangel Michael to close the doorways that have been opened during the healing and to anchor the healing in you.
  14. Ask the healing angels behind you to withdraw the energy completely. Connect with your heart and thank them. Thank your higher self for receiving the healing.
  15. Affirm that you are absolutely disconnected on all levels.
  16. Bring your awareness back into the room and dedicate any excess energy to Mother Gia to be sent to where it is most needed on the planet.
  17. Open your eyes.

You will have noticed several things; first your breathing will have slowed down. Secondly you will have felt the air flowing through your body. This is the Reiki. Do not be too disturbed if you don’t feel this at first. Keep at it as you have not been doing your Reiki for some time.

Enjoy your Reiki again, practice, practice and practice.

Spirit Guides

Article by Gregory Peters, Reiki Rays

One of the many privileges of being a Reiki practitioner is the honor of working with Spirit Guides. Working with your guides not only enhances the overall effectiveness of your Reiki practice, but also increases your own experience and self-healing. In many ways working with the Spirit Guides will also help you with spiritual awakening.

Our attunement and commitment to the healing energy of Reiki unites us with many subtle levels of being. The Spirit Guides are a particular class of non-physical beings that are dedicated to the healing tradition of Reiki.

The Spirit Guides meet you during your Reiki attunement, and are ready to work with you immediately. Although you may not even be aware of their presence, the Spirit Guides are enhancing and working with you to assist in being an open channel for the healing energies of Reiki.

Although not necessary for working with them, you may feel called to connect with your guides more directly. You can formally introduce yourself, and even learn their names and appearances. In this way your Spirit Guides become spiritual friends who you know and can call up at anytime by name.

As a Reiki healer, your guides are already subtlety teaching you how to contact them and best work with them. This may be completely unconscious, such that you find yourself performing actions during healing sessions that seem almost automatic or guided. Teachings may come through in dreams, since it is easiest for them to communicate with you when the waking mind is quiet. This is also why quiet, calming meditation is a great means to open the lines of communication with your guides.

Spirit Guides

There are several guided meditations available online that can help you with establishing closer rapport with your guides. You can also contact them directly on your own, either before a self-healing session or as a special meditation itself. Here is a suggested method. Feel free to modify or elaborate it as your own intuition sees fit.

  1. Sit quietly in a place where you will not be disturbed or distracted. This may be a spot where you meditate regularly in your home, or where you normally give Reiki treatments.
  2. Close your eyes. Take a slow, deep breath in, while seeing yourself filling up with brilliant white light. Then exhale, allowing all of your tensions to flow out with the breath. Repeat this two more times, then establish a gentle, slow, relaxed breathing pattern. A good one to start with is breath in for a count of 4, hold the breath for a count of 4, breathe out for a count of 4 – repeat. The important thing is to relax, see yourself filled with radiant white light, and to allow all the tensions to fade away.
  3. Sound a long “Ahhhhhh” while seeing your aura become even brighter, filled with radiant white luminescence. With your eyes closed, “see” with your spiritual eyes. This stimulates the Third Eye and will increase your overall psychic perception.
  4. Activate Dai Ko Myo with the mantra and seeing it above your head in brilliant bluish-white light. Even if you can not see this clearly, have the intention and know it is there. Give the other symbols and mantras in the order of Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki, and Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen.
  5. Invite your Spirit Guides to come close, and to introduce themselves directly to you. Say these words, or use your own that may come from inspiration in the moment:
    “I call and invite my Spirit Guides to be present! Guardians and Guides of Reiki, I invite you to be here now!”
  6. With your spiritual eyes, gaze into the white brilliance that surrounds you, and see the forms taking shape before you. The white brilliance resolves into a natural, beautiful landscape. See the figures before you. These are you guides!

There may be 1, 3, or more. Some practitioners work with countless guides. See them clearly. Ask them their names. Ask them how you can best work with them. Have a conversation with them, as they are wise beings and will have much to impart to aid you in your own spiritual practice.

The best thing to do once you have established contact is to ask them to assist in a healing. Whether this is a self-healing, or a healing for a client or friend, be sure to work with them to help solidify the connection.

Finally, you can ask them for a unique symbol that only you will know. This symbol, like the main Reiki symbols, will become your personal means of directly contacting your guides when you need them. You can incorporate this symbol into your work in many ways. For example, with long distance healing, you can now use your special symbol in combination with Hon Sha Ze Shoo Nen to ensure that your Spirit Guides will work on a healing directly.

At the end of your session, be sure to thank your Spirit Guides for their assistance. Your Reiki connection will only continue to deepen and mature as you work with them regularly. Also, the more you consciously work with your guides, the more you will increase your intuition and ability to listen to their instruction, ultimately giving you many unique approaches in your own healing practice.

Reiki, Third Eye and Higher Guidance

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master, Reiki Rays

As we progress on the Reiki path, we encounter many changes within ourselves. We also witness several aspects of our lives undergoing a positive shift. Reiki helps us open up to the truth of our divinity and innate potential. One significant development that is experienced by many on the path is that their ability to receive and listen to higher guidance, is awakened. This Higher Guidance is nothing but divine wisdom. It comes from Spirit/God/Source or whatever name we may choose to give it. And since we are all connected to Spirit, an aspect of Spirit is present in each of us. Therefore, it is perfectly possible for us to receive guidance directly from Spirit. All we need to do is clear the blocks that may be coming in the way of tuning into higher guidance.

Higher Guidance includes the following-

Communication with Spirit Guides/Reiki Guides/Angels/Masters and all other Beings who exist on a higher vibrational plane. These Higher Energies are happy to guide and support us on our journey. They can be a source of immense strength to us as we break through the veil of illusion and rise up as the stronger and wiser beings that we are deep within.

Reiki, Third Eye and Higher Guidance

An unfolding of one’s inner wisdom.

1. We receive guidance from within our own selves. We know things without knowing how exactly we know them.
2. While in the past we may have relied on others to guide and support us, we now have the capacity to guide and support ourselves.
3. We become capable of finding our own answers. The veil of confusion which existed previously is lifted and we gain a clearer picture of our life and our connection with all of existence.
4. We are aware of the steps we need to take in the interest of our higher good.
5. We can easily distinguish between the restless voice of the Egoic Self and the compassionate voice of the Higher Self.
6. We create our life based on the guidance that stems from our Higher Self.

The Third Eye chakra is associated with the ability to receive higher guidance. Reiki gently clears, heals and strengthens the Third Eye chakra. As the third eye opens up, our ability to receive higher guidance is also strengthened. And all of this happens very naturally and effortlessly. None of these shifts can be hurried or forced. They can only unfold as the blocks we carry melt and transform into light. Reiki is an aspect of this light. All we need to do is bask in this light every day. When we look back after several months or years, we will see the beauty and ease with which Reiki helped us heal and transform our lives. We will witness an unfolding of several spiritual capacities that lay latent in us. Just like the caterpillar that becomes the butterfly, we will transform into a version of ourselves we never imagined possible. Reiki is a great blessing to us and to our planet. Let us be grateful for it!

Receiving Distant Healing

Article by Lisa Koester, Reiki Rays

Hello, healers.

I wanted to share a recent experience I had with you all because I think it may change some perceptions on distant healing.

I know that as a Reiki Master and Practitioner, so often we focus on giving and sending Reiki, even though we are told over and over again about the importance of self-care. Of course we do practice self-care, but often for myself, I am aware that I am only practicing self-care because I know it will allow me to serve others better. How ironic is that!

This week, I had the opportunity to dive deep into self-Reiki as I waited for a scary and supposedly painful medical procedure to take place. I was offered drugs to calm me. And I admit that at first I said yes because I was already nervous about my decision to have this procedure in the first place.

As I sat in the waiting area, I placed my hands on myself using the Usui hand positions and sent Reiki to myself with the intention of having no pain, fear, and to be calm. I called on my Masters and Guides.

Then I realized, I had called in my own Reiki Master, who lives about 50 miles away. I asked her to please give Reiki treatment to me. Once I did, I immediately felt her hands on my shoulders. I had a very clear visual picture of her. I could even smell her. I felt totally enveloped in her presence, as if we were in the room together. I also felt the lineage of all those Masters who came before us.

Receiving Distant Healing

When they called my name to come in, I stood up, and felt an overwhelming difference in my body. I was completely calm, almost as if I had been sedated, but without the fuzzy head and nausea usually associated with drugs. I was clear, present, calm, and ready.

Once in the surgery room, I sent distant Reiki to the Dr. for steady hands, and I physically offered the nurse Reiki healing as she was having a bad time in life. It was an amazing experience.

I lay on the table and waited for them to start the procedure. Again I felt the presence of angels all around me. While I was waiting for them to start, the Dr. said, “OK we are finished. You can get dressed now.”

This was much more a spiritual experience than a medical one. I realized that now only can we send distant healing, we can also request it and call it in through the subtle body. We are connected through our lineage, so when we request Reiki healing in this way, we receive the blessings of all those in our lineage, even if they are unaware of it at the time. It’s a reversal of how we usually perceive distant Reiki healing. In this way, we are calling it in, as we in turn send it out to the Universe.

I’m sure that on a subtle level, my Reiki master received a healing herself when I did this.

I thanked her the next day. Of course she was delighted to hear this. How cool is it that each of us as a healer can be called upon to offer healing to those when in need? It is said that when Jesus walked through the town, the people would come up from behind him to touch his robe and be healed.

It is thrilling to know that we as healers can be called upon in this way, without any harm coming to ourselves or others.

The next time you are in need, I encourage you to reach out in this way, to either your own Master, a student, or other healer within your lineage, and feel the power of this distant receiving.

Reiki Ball For Healing

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master, Reiki Rays

A Reiki ball, also known as an energy ball, is a very useful healing tool. In simple terms, a Reiki ball can be described as a chunk of Reiki that is brought together in the form of a ball. It comes in handy in a variety of situations. It is a tool that can keep Reiki flowing to people or situations. There is no limit to how creative one can get while working with Reiki balls!

How to Make a Reiki Ball

For those hearing this for the first time, here’s how you make a ball of Reiki.

  •  Rub your palms for a few seconds until you experience sensations of warmth.
  •  Curve your palms slightly so it resembles a flower bud.
  •  Begin to move your palms apart until you feel strong sensations of heat or a kind of magnetic force between them.
  •  Move your palms up and down in circular motion, like you would if you were carving a ball. Feel or visualise a ball of energy between them.
  •  If you are attuned to symbols, infuse the ball with the symbols of your choice. Visualise the symbols in the ball and it will be done.
  •  Don’t worry if you can’t feel much initially. As you practise, you will be able to sense the ball in your hands.

Uses of a Reiki Ball

The following ideas serve as a reference to help you get started. With practice, you will find that the possibilities for healing with Reiki balls are virtually endless.

If you work with affirmations for healing, place a Reiki ball over the affirmation or on the page that has your writing.

Reiki Box
Whenever you work with your Reiki box, place a ball of Reiki in it. This will keep your intentions continuously charged with Reiki. If your Reiki box is in your phone, push the ball into the Reiki Box App.

Physical Healing
When there is a need for physical healing, push a ball of Reiki into the affected body part. In the case of internal organs, push the ball into the body, just over the location of the organ. Intend that the ball goes into the affected organ and heals it.

Pain Relief
If pain relief is needed, program the Reiki ball with the intention that it heals pain. Then push it into the body part or organ that needs relief from pain.

Spread Love
If you wish to send your love to someone, program a Reiki ball with the intention of sending love and toss it into the air. Pink being the colour of love, you can also visualise pink light inside the ball. Intend that the ball goes to the person and makes him or her feel loved. The other person may not consciously realise what happened. They may just experience feelings of love and warmth when the ball reaches them. This practice can bring in more love and harmony to all relationships.

Romantic Love
Program a ball with the intention of sending romantic love to your partner or spouse. Throw in some pink light as well. Toss the ball into the air. Intend that the ball reaches your beloved and conveys your unconditional love and acceptance to your partner.

Whenever you are in emotional pain, program a Reiki ball with the mental-emotional symbol and Master Symbol (if you’ve done third degree). Throw in some pink light and push it into your heart chakra. You can also push it into other parts of your body as you feel guided to. Intend that it brings you comfort and peace. Let go and witness the spontaneous healing that occurs.

Program a Reiki ball with the Power Symbol and Master Symbol (if you’ve done third degree). Intend that it stays with any object, place or person that needs protection. Place it over your house, over babies and children and over your belongings. You could send it along with a loved one who is travelling. Place it over your vehicle whenever you travel. Place it over food and water.

Plants and Animals
Place balls of Reiki over plants in your garden. Push them into trees. Intend that the energy helps your plants stay healthy and nurtures your garden. Place it over a pet or other animal that is unwell or needs protection.

Finding Misplaced Objects
If you’ve misplaced something, make a ball of Reiki and request it to go in search of the missing object. Toss it into the air and visualise it going away in search of the misplaced object. Thereafter, pay attention to your intuition. You may receive clues as to where the object is or you may see the location of the object in your mind’s eye. Trust the impressions you receive and look for the object as guided to. It can also happen that you are physically directed to the place that has the misplaced object.

Program a ball of Reiki with the power symbol. Toss it into rooms and other spaces that have accumulated negative energies. To thoroughly cleanse a room, place a ball of Reiki in each corner of the room. Push a ball of Reiki into the walls, the floor, the ceiling, windows, doors, wardrobes etc.

Now it’s time for you to get creative and experiment with Reiki Balls! Let your imagination run wild. Have fun!

Being A Reiki Angel On Earth

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master, Reiki Rays

Many of us Reiki healers integrate Angel Healing with Reiki. We take the assistance of the angels all the time. We enjoy being cared for and loved unconditionally by these Higher Beings. We are empowered by the loving warmth that envelops us when the angels shine their light upon us.

Can we also make the effort to be Angels for others in the world; for our Reiki clients, for our friends and family, for plants, animals and even so called non-living things?

Here are six ways that we can be Reiki Angels on Planet Earth:

Smile – When was the last time you smiled from your heart? Smiling is contagious and puts people at ease. Smile at your clients and make them feel welcome. People are often nervous when they come in for healings and classes (much like how one feels when waiting to meet a doctor). When you smile from your heart, it breaks the ice and makes the person comfortable. We often forget to smile at our partners, children, family and friends. We may not even find it necessary because we see these people all the time. But that’s the whole point isn’t it? The people close to us share their love with us. They do so much for us that we may not always be conscious of. Make frequent eye contact with people at home and smile. Be an angel and make them feel loved and cared for.

Being a Reiki Angel on Earth

Be Gentle Yet Firm – The angels are very gentle beings. They never intimidate us or force things down our throat. But when we seek their help, they are firm and expect that we follow the divine guidance they send our way. There is no way we can manipulate the angels into helping us with things that are not in our highest interest. Nor will they interfere with our free will unless we give them permission to help. We can help our clients best when we follow the same approach. Never promise to do things that you know are not in a client’s best interest. Just to keep clients happy, don’t offer to give Reiki to heal situations or force outcomes that don’t feel right. It is not going to work anyway. It does not matter even if clients don’t like you for not listening to them. View every case form a higher perspective and guide people like an angel would do.

Empower – The angels guide and help us when we call on them. At the same time, they also encourage us to connect with our innate power and wisdom. They strive to empower us. When clients seek help, it is our job to guide and support them to the extent necessary. But rather than make them dependent on us, we can empower them to connect with their own source of strength. It is not healthy to encourage relationships in which the teacher is viewed as the ultimate authority and the student becomes overly dependent on the teacher. Support your clients but draw the line where necessary. Ever heard the saying:

      “You have to be cruel to be kind.”

This is valid in certain cases and is a necessity with clients who seek comfort in dependent relationships. It is ultimately for their higher good.

Drop Judgement– This is tough but it must be done if we are to shine our light on the world. The angels see out true colours but they never judge us based on what they see. Instead, they radiate loving kindness, peace and compassion. In order to be an angel on Earth, try your best to drop all judgements. No matter how much someone may put you off, try to view him or her with compassion. People do the best they can with their level of awareness. So, drop judgement. Often, just being in the company of someone who does not judge can have a healing effect on others. Your clients are bound to heal faster when you create an environment of non-judgement and work with them from a place of compassion. Our job is to help people heal and not to hurt them more than they’ve already been hurt.

Lead by Example – The angels never blow their own trumpets to display their love and magnanimity to the world. Instead, they just radiate their love and inner beauty. This has a healing effect on everyone around them. Being human, we can never be perfect all the time. But we can strive to become the change that we wish to see in the world. If you want more kindness, be kind. If you want more love, radiate love. If you want more peace in the world, be peaceful yourself. Inspire others with your being rather than with talking and doing. Just this act of being the change you wish to see in the world can cause profound healing for those around you and for the planet.

Reiki Rules

Article by Rinku Patel, Reiki Rays

For any Reiki channel, the joy and pleasure of healing others is indescribable. When our client or anyone we are healing is healed and gives positive feedback, the joy is priceless. The miracle of healing past and future is simply amazing. Amidst this joy of healing family, friends, clients and situations, we need to remember and follow some basic rules of Reiki.

1. Do not develop the attitude of arrogance
2. You are not a doctor
3. Do not force Reiki on anyone
4. No free Reiki
5. Do not get attached to the result.
6. Be ethical

1. Do not develop the attitude of arrogance.

Remember, you are not a healer, you are just a channel. Instead of developing the arrogant attitude, always follow the attitude of gratitude. Gratitude to Universe, God, Angels, Masters and Guides for empowering you and choosing you as a channel to heal others.

2. You are not a doctor

Do not ever discourage your clients or family to consult a doctor. Always be clear with your clients about what to expect without giving false hopes. Do not diagnose. You are a channel to heal, leave diagnosing to doctor. Yes, scanning the aura to check blockages and impurities is must, so that we can heal the related organs and chakras. Though Reiki can heal most disease, do not ask your clients to stop medications.

3. Do not force Reiki on anyone

If someone doesn’t want Reiki, they say no to it then do not give them Reiki. Let them decided what is best for them and what is for their highest good. If they refuse and you still give Reiki, their soul and higher-self will not accept the healing. It is like someone closing door on your face and you cannot enter. In case of emergency, you can take permission from their higher-self and soul to accept the healing.

4. No free Reiki

You cannot give free Reiki, unless of course there is some emergency. It may end up accumulating karmic debt for both healer and the client. The circuit is only complete when you give and receive. Generally, things given for free lose its value and importance. So respect Reiki and always ask for energy exchange.

5. Do not get attached to the outcome

Just give Reiki with pure heart and pure intention. Do not get attached to the result. It may cause doubt in your mind and your subconscious mind starts wondering if you will get the positive outcome or not. Best is, give Reiki and have faith that it will work for highest good at the right time. You are a Reiki channel, you have a power of healing but when and how is decided by the Universe.

6. Be ethical

As a healer or a teacher, follow ethics. As a healer it is your duty to be honest with your clients and not to give them false hopes. It is your duty to tell them what to expect and show the right direction. As a teacher, just do one thing: TEACH FROM HEART. Teach in such a way that your words and guidance stays with your students forever. Ditch the attitude of jealousy and competition.

Just for today, I will follow rules ☺

Is Reiki Really An Energy?

Article by Taryn Walker, Reiki Rays

It’s likely that you were taught that “Reiki is universal life-force energy” and that“Reiki moves through the practitioner to the receiver”. I once read that life-force energy enters through the crown of the practitioner and moves down to the heart and then along each arm and out the hands to the receiver.

When I first started practicing Reiki I took these explanations for granted. There hasn’t been much concrete scientific research into Reiki, but from an Eastern perspective on healing these descriptions made some sort of sense to me. Over years of daily practice, however, I started to question these theories and have enjoyed entertaining other possibilities of what is actually happening when we practice Reiki.

Instead of thinking of Reiki as an energy, I became more comfortable thinking of it simply as a practice that reconnects a person with their natural intelligence. I imagined that during a Reiki attunement a special piece of information is passed on from teacher to student. This piece of information may be a powerful reminder of the incredible inner wisdom we all have. It’s that same intelligence that heals our wounds without our effort, that tells seeds to grow into trees, that creates galaxies and all of life! It’s always there and it’s everywhere. When a practitioner places their hands on or near someone that person is given an opportunity to respond to this information.

Each person will respond uniquely depending on what is possible at the time. Most practitioners feel twitches, tingling, heat and other interesting sensations in their hands while practicing Reiki. Is this the feeling of life force energy moving through the hands? It feels to me more like the receiver’s etheric body or bio-energy rearranging in response to the reminder of our natural capacity for self healing. It’s like the practitioner establishes the connection to this information and then rebalancing begins to happen naturally.

Is Reiki Really An Energy?

I’ve found that many more people who’ve asked me about Reiki feel more comfortable with this explanation than the theory of some sort of energy moving through me. Some people told me they worried that the practitioner could be channeling something that wasn’t pure Reiki. Others just can’t believe that anyone can become such a channel in a matter of days. A reminder of the natural ability to heal is an easier description to accept and it also makes more sense to a lot of people.

Getting the ego out of the way is also much easier for the practitioner when you think of the receiver driving the experience instead of the practitioner trying to become an empty channel for life-force energy. When you imagine that the receiver is automatically responding to that reminder of their innate intelligence your job becomes to simply establish the connection and let the receiver respond as they will. This is also very empowering for a person who wants healing and offers them an important lesson in taking responsibility for their healing process.

I think the translation of Reiki as universal life-force energy refers to this very subtle universal intelligence that is found everywhere and is always available. I now teach my students different possible explanations and ask them to decide which feels more true in their hearts. Are you channeling life force energy through you to the receiver? Are you connecting the receiver to the subtle universal wisdom and holding space as they respond? The more I practice the more inclined I am towards the second explanation.

Our ability to self heal is always present and all we need is a little prompt or suggestion to activate the healing response. I think this is why distant Reiki works and why it doesn’t seem to matter how you practice Reiki. Traditional and new age styles all produce great results and I believe it’s because of the simplicity of this reminder of our incredible capacity to move towards balance and wholeness when given the chance to relax enough to reconnect to this wisdom.
