How Can I Learn Reiki?
There are several degrees to the Reiki system, but even after learning the first degree you can give Reiki treatments to yourself and to others.
A first degree Reiki course lasts 12-16 hours (depending, among other things, on the number of students in the course, how many questions are asked, and how much time is taken for breaks). These class hours can be divided among two days, depending on your specific needs. It is possible to learn this method in such a short time because, unlike other systems, no diagnosis is required for giving Reiki treatments.
How Reiki Works
Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy. It is within us. When we receive Reiki initiations, we are able to channel more of this Energy from the Universe into our bodies and to direct it through our hands into our self and into the bodies of other people. When this Energy is received, it is used for healing at a subconscious level. This healing process will lead to personal balance that eventually results in inner peace and usually in improved health. The combination of balance, inner peace, and improved health allows us to become happier and seem more beautiful to ourselves and to those around us.
You will find that as with other alternative medicine, with Reiki treatments our ailments may seem to get worse before they get better. This is not because something harmful is taking place. On the contrary, the vibrational frequency of Reiki is such, that it cannot cause damage. In order to heal, we must get rid of the blockages and emotional baggage that we have accumulated in our bodies. Therefore, as the healing process proceeds, among other symptoms we may feel that our joints ache as though we had the flu, have loose bowels, sweat profusely, or even develop a low-grade fever. We may even feel very emotional. Not everyone who receives Reiki treatments or learns Reiki will experience this, however, people with severe conditions may experience opposite effects. Some examples are, people who are anxious and or hyperactive may feel an intense need to sleep more. People who are depressed and whose energy has been depleted may feel over-energized with an inability to sleep. All of these symptoms of cleaning out the toxins in the body are temporary, and we should welcome them as an indication that our bodies are healing.
We have found that the best way to overcome these symptoms is to simply apply more Reiki to ourselves and to drink lots of pure water, and to rest. It is only then that the body can use the Reiki energy to clear itself and you can become well and whole again
Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force, the natural energy around and within us. Reiki is a way of activating, directing and applying this natural energy to promote health, balance and wholeness.
Reiki can be used most effectively as a self-help technique for the release of stress, relaxation and to restore the vital energy lost in daily life. As a result, it creates good health!
