Reiki is an energy healing art with its origins in Japanese based culture. The original word Reiki comes in the Japanese language (Rei) that means Universal Life Force and (Ki) that mean Energy. Reiki itself is not associated with any religion or spiritual practice. It is not dependent on belief or touch, although Reiki attunement can be done with touching and smelling herbs such as Reiki oil, Reiki tea, Reiki powder and Reiki drops. It’s not even dependent on you being a good receptacle of Reiki.
What is Reiki?
Reiki training is based on the universal life force energy, which everyone possesses – called Reiki Power – but that which we can develop and refine to create our own unique expression. Reiki training can be taken on the whole of one’s life or be separated into four levels, which are known as Reiki Master Level, Master of Reiki Level, Reiki Expert Level and Reiki Masters Level. Reiki courses vary widely in style, emphasis and structure, with Reiki Education or Training focusing on the whole of one’s life as a system; Reiki Education/Training concentrates on developing and perfecting Reiki techniques for use in personal practice; Reiki Mastery Level including Reiki techniques for self-development, career and relationship development; Reiki Certification where a practitioner is trained to become a Reiki Master or Teacher. Reiki Certification is also available for professional advancement. Reiki Education/Training courses often have an intensive focus on Reiki in one’s home environment. Reiki Education/Training courses are usually given in group settings with the goal of developing Reiki into a regular part of a person’s life, somewhere such as Reiki Raleigh NC.
Reiki education is generally for the whole of one’s life, although Reiki attunements can take place at any time. Reiki attunements are not mandatory but can provide excellent benefits. Reiki attunements are self-paced, whereby the opportunity to learn Reiki is taken when the person is prepared for it and at his/her own pace. Reiki attunements can be undertaken over many months, sometimes years. Reiki attunements are not physical, but can have a positive effect on the mind and spirit, positively affecting health and well-being. Reiki attunements are based on the premise that Reiki energy, like all energy, is simply what its name suggests, pure.
