Reiki is not a religion. It beholds no doctrines, creeds or contradictions to the universal laws of consciousness and love. No matter where the person may be at a certain point in their life, Reiki will harmonize and embrace their philosophical center point, adding to it the divine presence. Once an individual is attuned to Reiki through initiations, they are permanently linked without the need of conscious alteration of the mind, either through meditation, prayer, or imaging. Simply by placing one’s hands on oneself, or another person, allows the energy to flow through the individual. It fills the Reiki practitioner’s hands into the individual who is receiving the healing.
Reiki energy comes from the God-Force and is an extremely powerful healing energy. It is one of the few forms of healing that can be used to heal oneself. Reiki does not conflict with other health-care, but enhances its result. It does not interfere with traditional medical treatment, but facilitates benefits. Reiki speeds the healing process, and provides a source of restoring energy while one is ill, under medical treatment, or in recovery.
Reiki healing is a pure energy form. When it is combined with the sincere desire of the healee, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their emotional and spiritual consciousness, a total healing can occur. We must always remember that the energy of the God-Force is neutral and awaits the positive, productive empowerment by the healee, the Reiki practitioner plays an instrumental part in transformation, and yet ultimately it is up to the healee to manifest harmony and balance in their life. The Reiki practitioner is a channel and must not allow the “Ego-Will” to desire the healee well. The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. This allows the highest soul purpose to be the outcome of the healing. Reiki is a tool for use at any moment, anytime, anywhere for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy. In short, Reiki is a wholistic self-help technique for directing natural life energy. No special environment or equipment is needed and age makes no difference. By following steps taught by a trained Reiki Master/Teacher, anyone is able to direct the “Light Energy” of Reiki to meet individual needs.
