EH, INHA, CRA-RT
I am an Energy Healer/Reiki Master and I have been successfully Teaching and practicing Usui Reiki for several years.
As a result of being diagnosed with Cervical Stenosis, I was forced to resign from my place of work due to serious pain which travelled down both arms, affecting my hands and my neck. I spent thousands of dollars on physiotherapy, which also included traction treatments and exercises. The pain never left. My doctor prescribed various pain medications and quite frankly none of them worked. As a last resort I contacted an Energy Healer from the United States. She worked on me through long distance healing and for the first time in many months, the pain stopped. I thought there must be something to this Energy Healing and I'm sure I could learn to self heal for myself.
This began my journey in Energy Healing to Reikiandyou and continues to lead me into the study and practice of many complimentary Healing Modalities.
What is Reiki
Reiki is the gift of vitality and self preservation encoded into the genetic makeup of all God’s creatures. It is the higher self’s connection to the universal energy that breathes life into all living things. We are all born with the omniscient wisdom to heal and preserve life. All living things are connected. Our ancestors used and relied on their own abilities and instincts. Unfortunately, these basic skills have been forgotten and are rarely used today. Humanity in its relentless ambition for progress has given up its most precious and natural gift.
Through the media and clever advertising campaigns the majority of the world’s population have been conditioned to rely heavily on modern technology at the expense of their own birthright. There is a need for humanity to become re-balanced. Instead of giving up responsibility for one’s life and health, it is vitally important to regain equilibrium between ancient and modern technology. Reiki is the catalyst.
Many people believe when you are ready to embrace the principles of Reiki you will be guided to a teacher. I personally believe that Reiki with its infinite wisdom and unconditional love seeks out the person when they need it most. This is true of my own experience and introduction to Reiki.
About Usui Reiki
Reiki is a form of hands on healing, with its origins in India and the East dating back many thousands of years to the time before Christ and Buddha. The original name, disciplines and techniques of Reiki were lost due to the traditional method of passing knowledge from generation to generation by word of mouth. Exactly when this ancient art of healing disappeared is difficult to determine. However, we do know that it was rediscovered by a Japanese Scholar and monk name Dr Mikao Usui. It was in fact Dr Usui who fashioned the name REIKI.
The Japanese pronunciation is RYE-KEY, it has been westernised to RAY-KEY.
Rei means universal, omnipresent – present everywhere at the same time. Esoterically Rei means spiritual consciousness, the omniscient wisdom from God or the higher self.
Ki is the non physical vitality that gives life to all living things. Many cultures understand and recognise the importance of Ki energy and how it impacts our lives and well-being.
Ki energy can be activated for the purpose of healing. When you feel healthy and full of enthusiasm, the flow of Ki energy in your body is high and unencumbered. Life seems easier to deal with and you have a higher resistance to illness and disease. However, when your Ki energy is low because maybe you are under stress or feeling unhappy and tired you will be more susceptible to disease and sickness. Your attitude will be generally negative and you will find it difficult to deal with life’s challenges. Ki is the very essence of the soul; it leaves the body when a person dies. Reiki is holistic; it works on the body, mind and spirit by stimulating a person’s own natural healing abilities. The blocked emotional and physical elements that lead to illness and disease are cleared. Reiki is neither positive nor negative; it is in fact the highest and most profound vibration of life. Divine in origin, it allows us all to become one with all things alive in our world. Reiki is pure unconditional love and joy bringing all who experience and embrace its principles together in harmony.
