Anatomic Illustrations for Reiki

There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. - Harry Crews

Reiki with its infinite wisdom goes to the place in the body that requires healing. That is why Reiki is so easy to learn and apply. There is no need to study the anatomy of the human body or animals to treat a person or animal successfully. You simply place your hands on the body and channel the energy. Reiki will do the rest.

However, it can be helpful to know where the major organs, lymphatic and endocrine systems are in the body. This knowledge will allow you to treat specific problems or organs quickly and easily.

The following illustrations are simple diagrams of the human anatomy. If you decide to further your studies we recommend that you make full use of your publi…

Preparing For Reiki 1

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind. - Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

Preparing for Reiki 1 - The Path to Reiki

People from all walks of life are drawn to Reiki for many different reasons. Many people come to Reiki after a personal recommendation from a friend who has already attended a workshop. They notice positive changes in their friend and decide to experience it for themselves. A large majority of people simply need healing and want to take responsibility and control of their own treatment and well-being. The most common factor seems to be that people are searching for hope and guidance. Often people feel empty and are looking for a way of filling that void.

Many students begin as skeptics just curious to find out more about it, and leave as Reiki enthusiasts. The secret to …

The 5 Reiki Principles

Just for today I will not worry. Just for today I will not be angry. Just for today I will do my work honestly. Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings. Just for today I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.

The Reiki principles are spiritual ideals. By adopting these precepts you will add balance and substance to your life. It is important that you realise that you are not expected to live every moment of your life within the framework of these ideals. As humans we are all imperfect, and that is why each principle begins with “Just for today.” You can without pressure or stress work on improving yourself daily. If you slip up today, you can always begin again tomorrow. The more you work with the principles, the more you will condition yourself to adopt them as a way of life.

To become more familiar with the Reiki principles it is advisa…

The History of Reiki

The best and most efficient pharmacy is within your own system - Robert C. Peale

The Japanese like many ancient cultures used word of mouth to pass their history and practices down from generation to generation. Unfortunately this led to a great deal of knowledge and wisdom being watered down and lost. Many people involved with Reiki believe that the techniques we use today for healing were first used in India by Buddha and later by Jesus.

Others look back even further to the civilisations of Mu and Atlantis for the birth and development of Reiki. Of course without written proof we can only speculate how humanity learnt to harness and develop the universal life force.

What we can be certain of and confirm is that it was rediscovered at the end of the nineteenth century by Dr Mikao Usui. Until comparatively recently apart from the tom…

How Reiki Works

You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body. ~ C.S. Lewis

The human body is made up of over 50 trillion cells. Each cell contains omniscient wisdom and is connected to the universe and every living thing within it. A good analogy is to think of the universe as a huge ocean of water. Every living thing within that ocean is like a tiny droplet. Together these droplets make up and are part of Reiki the universal life force.

Reiki is part of our genetic structure; an in built intelligence that energises the mind body and spirit. Reiki stimulates growth, health, life and healing. When it is freely allowed to flow around the body it can keep us alive and healthy for over one hundred and twenty years.

Unfortunately, bad habits and poor choices result in the flow of Reiki being stifled. It is important to note that Reiki cannot be …

What is Reiki

In the deeper reality beyond space and time, we may be all members of one body - Sir James Jeans

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.

Reiki is a two syllable Japanese word meaning universal life force. Although the proper Japanese pronunciation is RYE-KEY, it has been westernised to RAY-KEY.

Reiki the Universal Life Force

Our sorrow and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion – Buddha

There is a non physical ubiquitous energy that gives life to every living organism. For many thousands of years we have known of this energy and have sought to develop ways to harness its power to heal and influence our lives. The Japanese call this energy Ki. It is also known as Chi by the Chinese, Prana by a number of Asian cultures and the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost by most of the western world.

We carry this energy in and around our bodies from the moment we are conceived. Science has established its existence, and with the aid of Kirlian photography we are able to see this energy that encompasses all living things. Ancient Eastern cultures have harnessed and applied this energy for healing since before the birth of Jesus Christ.

Many successful disci…

3 Tips to Help You Reduce Everyday Stress

The world and how we live, communicate and interact has changed forever. Although we all still have 24 hours each day to work, socialize, play, relax, study, grow and enjoy time with our family and friends; we are bombarded by so many outside sources and influences all fighting for our time and attention, that it can become overwhelming and very stressful… unless we take the time to control and reduce the everyday stress that we are all exposed to.

Taking the time to learn how to deal with and reduce everyday stress is something that everybody should invest in for the sake of their own health and well-being. It is a well-known fact that our health can suffer from the effects of stress, which in turn can also make it difficult to think clearly enough to solve even the simplest of tasks and function productively each day. The good news is that there are a number of easy techniques for reducing your stress wh…

Treasure Life

RHA Member Cathy White shares a story about Reiki.

I once went to a very renowned psychic. During my reading, she told me that I should continue my studies with my energy work. I was already doing Reiki at that time, but was in school, learning Therapeutic Touch (hands on healing) She told me that there was a doctor on the other side, that was going to work with me and through me. She said he told her that I wasn't quite ready yet, to continue with my energy work and when I was ready, he would show up. He asked her if I knew what ether smelled like, and told her, when he arrived I would smell ether.

Well this story is about one of my Reiki experiences that I had. One of my closest friends, from out of town, was staying at my place. It was about 3:00 a.m. and we were still up and reminiscing. I heard a voice that said, "Give her a Reiki treatment". At first I thought, this i…

Insight And Gratitude Through Reiki

Reiki Healing Association Member Gary Hewitt was kind enough to share with us a glimpse of his week as a Reiki Practitioner.

Reflecting on the past seven days as a Reiki Practitioner, it has been a week of insight and gratitude for me. Wednesday was another day of meditation and insight and once more there was powerful stuff at work. We worked on the bear within us and its good to know you can call on this power when people try to put you down, or you are suffering from a lack of self confidence.

I got to work with Clare this week and she gave me some very useful insights into what I need to do. She's a gifted medium and card reader and it's always a pleasure to work with her; I also gave her some advice on what needs to be done and the messages I provided in return for Clare were gratefully received.
