Reiki – Alternative Healing

There are many alternative forms of healing being used in the world today. One of the most famous is Reiki. Reiki takes it’s name from the Japanese form of two Chinese ideograms, REI which means soul, spirit or ghost and KI (qi or chi) which means energy or life force.

Reiki is a form of spiritual healing that was officially introduced in the early part of the 20th Century, by Mikao Usui, for the treatment of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problems. It is said Usui received the wisdom of the system after fasting and meditating for three weeks on Mount Kurama. Reiki practitioners use a system akin to laying on of hands, this allows them the channel the energy of the universe through them into the patient.

There are three stages to Reiki, level 1, level 2 and level three more often given the name master level. Any one who attains the master level attunement is also shown how to attune others, and thereby increasing the Reiki practitioner community. No one is forced to become a master it is simple a matter of choosing and being attuned after a period of time.

During the attunements which happen over several months the student is also aware of their own spiritual side changing and healing in many ways. As such it is often said they have undergone a spiritual detox. In some Reiki schools the students are also taught the use of runic symbols to allow them to summon the energies in the early stages of their practice.

Reiki has established itself both in the Eastern and Western worlds, sadly since Usui brought us Reiki it has become a much sought after addition to a healing system, this has brought on an increase in costs from many tutors, so much so that some charge extortionate amounts and give themselves tiles where none are needed. Reiki comes from heaven and as such is for all who wish to practice, not just for those who can afford it.
