History Of Amazing Reiki

  1. 1. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com The History Of Amazing Reiki Before you begin to move forward become a Reiki Master, maybe you should to know or remembering again about “The History Of Reiki”. Here’s the Story Of Reiki : Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui. After three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama, in Japan, Usui claimed to receive the ability of quot;healing without energy depletionquot;.A portion of the practice, tenohira or palm healing, is used as a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).Tenohira is a technique whereby practitioners believe they are moving quot;healing energyquot; (a form of ki) through the palms. There is no generally accepted scientific evidence for either the existence of ki or any mechanism for its manipulation, and a systematic review of randomized clinical trials conducted in 2008 did not support the efficacy of reiki or its recommendation for use in the treatment of any condition. >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Derivation of name Japanese reiki quot;mysterious atmosphere; spiritual powerquot; is a loanword from Chinese lingqi, which some Chinese-English dictionaries translate: quot;(of beautiful mountains) spiritual influence or atmosphere intelligence; power of understanding supernatural power or force in fairy tales; miraculous power or force spiritual influence (of mountains/etc.) ingeniousness; clevernessquot;. This Japanese compound joins rei quot;ghost, spirit, soul; supernatural, miraculous, divine; ethereal bodyquot; and ki quot;gas, air; breath; energy; force; atmosphere; mood; intention; emotion; attentionquot;, here meaning qi quot;spiritual energy; vital energy; life force; energy of lifequot;.Some reiki translation equivalents from Japanese-English dictionaries are: quot;feeling of mysteryquot; quot;an atmosphere (feeling) of mysteryquot;, and quot;an ethereal atmosphere (that prevails in the sacred precincts of a shrine); (feel, sense) a spiritual (divine) presence.quot; English reiki or Reiki transliterates a Japanese loanword. Reiki is syntactically used as a noun (referring to either quot;the putative energyquot; or quot;the therapeutic method based upon itquot;), a verb, or an adjective. Some Western authors loosely translate reiki as quot;universal life energyquot;. This coinage partially mistranslates: ki means quot;life energyquot; — rei does not mean quot;universalquot;. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com
  2. 2. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com Origin Mikao Usui originated Reiki in 1922 after a twenty-one day retreat on Mount Kurama, involving meditation, fasting, and prayer.Usui said that by mystical revelation he had gained the knowledge and spiritual power to apply and attune others to what is called Reiki. In April 1922, Usui moved to Tokyo and founded the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (Usui Reiki Healing Society). Usui was an admirer of the literary works of Emperor Meiji, and, in the process of developing his Reiki system, summarised some of the emperor's works into a set of ethical principles, which later became known as the Reiki Principles.(quot;GOKAIquot; in Japanese) Many Reiki teachers and practitioners aim to abide by these five principles, one translation of which is: quot;The secret method of inviting good fortune. The marvelous medicine for all sickness Just for today: Do not be angry Do not worry Be grateful Work with integrity Be kind to others. Every morning and every night, sit in the Gassho position [hands held palm-to-palm] and speak these words out loud in your heart. For the evolution of body and soul, Usui Reiki Ryohoquot; — Mikao Usui, the founder. Usui taught over 2000 students to use Reiki. Sixteen of his students continued their training to reach the Shinpiden level, equivalent to the Western third degree, or master level. Usui died in 1926. >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Early development After Usui's death, Chujiro Hayashi, a former student of Usui, left the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai and formed his own association. Hayashi simplified the Reiki teachings, stressing physical healing and using a more codified and simpler set of Reiki techniques. Hayashi initiated and trained Hawayo Takata, who travelled widely in the USA, practising Reiki and teaching the first two levels to others. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com
  3. 3. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com Takata stressed the importance of charging money for Reiki treatments and teachings. In 1976, Takata began teaching the Shinpiden stage and introduced the term Reiki master for this level.She also fixed a price of $10,000 for the master training. Takata died in 1980 by which time she had trained 22 Reiki masters. Almost all Reiki taught outside Japan can be attributed to her work. >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Teachings Reiki teachings claim that there is an inexhaustible, universal quot;life forcequot; spiritual energy, that can be used to induce a healing effect. Believers say that anyone can gain access to this energy by means of an attunement process carried out by a Reiki Master. Claims for such energy have no known theoretical or biophysical basis. Reiki is described by adherents as a holistic therapy which brings about healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. The belief is that the energy will flow through the practitioner's hands whenever the hands are placed on, or held near a potential recipient, who can be clothed. Some teachings stress the importance of the practitioner's intention or presence in this process, while others claim that the energy is drawn by the recipient's injury to activate or enhance the natural healing processes. Going further, the belief is that the energy is quot;intelligentquot;, making diagnosis unnecessary. A second level of training, including another initiation, is said to equip the practitioner to perform Reiki treatments from a distance. This method, it is stated, involves the use of special symbols to form a temporary connection between the practitioner and the recipient, regardless of location, and then to send the Reiki energy. Techniques are also taught whereby Reiki can be sent to a specific point in time, either in the past or the future. >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Practice Whole body treatment In a typical whole-body Reiki treatment, the practitioner asks the recipient to lie down, usually on a massage table, and relax. Loose, comfortable clothing is usually worn during the treatment. The practitioner might take a few moments to enter a calm or meditative state of mind and mentally prepare for the treatment, that is usually carried out without any unnecessary talking. The treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing his hands on the recipient in various positions. However, practitioners may use a non-touching technique, where the hands are held a few centimetres away from the recipient's body, for some or all of the positions. The hands are usually kept still for 3 to 5 minutes before moving to the next position. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com
  4. 4. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com Overall, the hand positions usually give a general coverage of the head, the front and back of the torso, the knees and feet. Between 12 and 20 positions are used, with the whole treatment lasting 45 to 90 minutes. Some practitioners use a fixed set of hand positions. Others use their intuition to guide them as to where treatment is needed, sometimes starting the treatment with a quot;scanquot; of the recipient to find such areas. The intuitive approach might also lead to individual positions being treated for much shorter or longer periods of time. It is reported that the recipient often feels warmth or tingling in the area being treated, even when a non-touching approach is being used. A state of deep relaxation, combined with a general feeling of well-being, is usually the most noticeable immediate effect of the treatment, although emotional releases can also occur. As the Reiki treatment is said to be stimulating natural healing processes, instantaneous quot;curesquot; of specific health problems are not usually observed. A series of three or more treatments, typically at intervals of 1 to 7 days, is usually recommended if a chronic condition is being addressed. Regular treatments, on an on-going basis, can be used with the aim of maintaining well-being. The interval between such treatments is typically in the range of 1 to 4 weeks, except in the case of self-treatment when a daily practice is common. >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Localized treatment Localized Reiki treatments involve the practitioner's hands being held on or near a specific part of the body. Recent injuries are usually treated in this way, with the site of injury being targeted. There is great variation in the duration of such treatments, though 20 minutes might be typical. Some practitioners use localized treatments for certain ailments, and some publications have tabulated appropriate hand positions. However, other practitioners prefer to use the whole body treatment for all chronic conditions, on the grounds that it has a more holistic effect. Another approach is to give a whole body treatment first, followed by a localized treatment. Training The teaching of Reiki outside of Japan is commonly divided into three levels, or degrees. First degree The first degree Reiki course teaches the basic theories and procedures. Four quot;attunementsquot; are given to the student by the teacher. Students learn hand placement positions on the recipient's body that are thought to be most conducive to the process in a whole body treatment. Having completed the first degree course, the participant can treat himself and others with Reiki. The course duration is traditionally four sessions, most often presented in 2, 3, or 4 consecutive days www.ReikiHealingMaster.com
  5. 5. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com Second degree In the second degree Reiki course, the student learns the use of three symbols which are said to enhance the strength and distance over which the effect can be exerted. Another attunement is given, which is said to further increase the capacity for Reiki to flow through the student, as well as empowering the use of the symbols. Having completed the second level, the student can work without being physically present with the recipient. Third degree or master training Through the third degree, or quot;master trainingquot;, the student becomes a Reiki Master. (In Reiki terminology, the word quot;masterquot; does not imply spiritual enlightenment.) One or more attunements are carried out and the student learns a further master-level symbol, called Dai Koo Myo. Having completed the master training, the new Reiki Master can attune other people to Reiki and teach the three degrees of Reiki. The duration of the master training can be anything from a day to a year or more, depending on the school and philosophy of the Reiki Master giving the training. >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Variations There is much variation in training methods, speeds and costs. There is no accreditation body for Reiki, nor any regulation of the practice. Reiki courses can even be taken over the Internet, although Traditionalists state that attunement must be done in person in order to take effect, as the Reiki Master/Teacher doing the attunement must be able to actually touch the energy field of the person being attuned. Some traditionalists maintain that any method that teaches Reiki quot;quicklyquot; cannot yield as strong an effect, because there is no substitute for experience and patient mastery of the art. Scientific research The strongest research conducted as of 2008 has failed to demonstrate that Reiki is an effective treatment for any condition. This systematic review assessed this evidence base, finding nine studies which fit their selection criteria. A modified Jadad score of methodological quality was used, taking into account the difficulty of blinding practitioners. Non-randomized studies were excluded, as the potential for intentional or unintentional bias in such studies is large, rendering the results uninterpretable. Overall, the methodological quality of the evidence base was found wanting, with even high- ranking studies failing fully to control for placebo effects and most studies suffering quot;methodological flaws such as small sample size, inadequate study design and poor reporting.quot;[7] As trials with such flaws are known to be likely to show exaggerated treatment effects, there is insufficient evidence to indicate that reiki is effective as sole or adjuvant therapy for any medical condition, or that it has any benefits beyond possible placebo effects. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com
  6. 6. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com >>> Click Here If You Ready to Become A Reiki Master <<< Safety and effectiveness Concerns about safety in Reiki are similar to those of other alternative medicines. Doctors of medicine and allied health care workers believe that patients might avoid clinically proven treatments for serious conditions in favor of unproven alternative medicines. Reiki practitioners may encourage their clients to consult a medical doctor for serious conditions, stating that Reiki can be used to complement conventional medicine. Clinical trials have not reported any significant adverse effects from the use of Reiki. The National Council Against Health Fraud suggests that any clinical effect of Reiki may be due to suggestion (the placebo effect), and Reiki has been labelled as a quot;feel-goodquot; therapy, where recipients themselves do not expect any significant healing effects. www.ReikiHealingMaster.com
