"Rei" "Ki"-- The Kanji (Japanese alphabet) definition for Rei is universal,
transcendental spirit, mysterious power, essence. Ki is defined as the vital
life force energy, very similar to the Chi of Chinese acupuncture, and
Bioplasmic Energy to Russian researchers. This Universal Life Energy is
guided by a higher intelligence. Reiki is brought through the practitioner and
transferred to the client via a light touch. It is called "hands on" work,
Light-work, or Energywork.
The Five Reiki Principles:
- Just for today, I will live with an attitude of gratitude.
- Just for today, I will not worry.
- Just for today, I will not anger.
- Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
- Just for today, I will show love and respect for every living being.
Reiki works for the highest good of all.
Reiki "un-blocks" any and all impediments between what is organic and that
which is "the original source of its life". Reiki transcends time and distance to
heal and un-block impediments within one's past, present, and future. Reiki
shifts the soul's emphasis from unwanted habits, in the benefit of fostering
the achievement of one's personal goals.
Reiki is a verbal lineage passed down from Master to student through
initiation. The student learns the history of Reiki, the Reiki lineage from the
modern founder and Grandmaster Dr. Mikao Usui, to the present standing
Grandmaster, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, and the student receives attunements.
Attunements are spiritual agreements between the "other side" and the
student that the student takes responsibility for being a conduit to channel
the healing universal life energy.
Reiki Training is divided into three classes or also called degrees. Reiki level
one, level two, and level three (or Reiki Mastership). You can be certified
from an individual Reiki Master or a Reiki Master at a Reiki Institution. The
three degrees include attunements to the Power Symbols. The signing of the
power symbol activates the healing energy. Each power symbol activates a
particular frequency of healing, one for physical healing, one for emotional
healing, another for psychological healing. The Power Symbols appeared to
Dr. Mikao Usui the day he received the power to do hands-on healing. These
Power Symbols originally appeared to him in Sanskrit then he translated
them to Japanese (his native tongue). .
