Reiki Hand Positions & Advice

While not totally necessary you may desire to add a commitment of practicing a few of these disciplines while you are awaiting your final attunement.

Abstain or reduce usage of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, processed foods, meat, & excessive sugar for approximately the next few weeks. Spend time every day channeling Reiki using the symbols you have already meditated on.

Meditate every day, even if it’s only five minutes.
Recite the five spiritual principals of Reiki upon arising in the morning and retiring in the evening.
Surf on the Internet & research chakra clearing & grounding techniques. Whole courses in themselves, but it would be very helpful to get an idea of how this is done.
Explain to your family & friends that after your attunement you will need more time for self, for a few weeks. This may mean cutting back on a regularly scheduled event, or having more help with preparing meals around the house or cleaning duties. Make sure you are comfortable & supportive during this important time in your life. What you are doing is so incredibly worthwhile & life changing. Once you complete this process you will literally be transformed on an energetic level.

About Reiki

By Michael Coyne

Reiki energy is the same subtle energy that enlivens all of creation. The underlying energetic structure of man, nature and space is gaining more respect today, as we move away from

the dominant matter-first paradigm, to one in which consciousness is steadily reclaiming its rightful position. One of the simplest ways to illustrate this is the brain/mind relationship. Most science today still maintains that the mind somehow (proof has been elusive) evolved out of the gray matter of the brain. Perennial traditions know that mind (in this example), or rather consciousness is the very womb of life. In other words, the mind is not limited

to the brain and therefore is not regulated by it, although the brain is an instrument of the mind, just as the mind is an instrument of the soul.

Muscular relaxation is a tangible first effect of Reiki. Once it is felt and allowed, relaxation of

other bodily structures and functions can take place. As relaxation deepens it is experienced more as a state of calmness, and many times as peace. The experience of peace points to something ultimately more real and permanent than the body. This does not negate the body’s wisdom. If allowed, the initial, superficial relaxation of the muscles and other bodily structures will eventually release the mental or emotional issue s registered in the cells and

organic material, as well as the chemistry of the body. Issues are originally imprinted due to the holistic principle that all parts are reflected in the whole, and the whole is reflected in the parts.

Peace of mind, heartfelt peace, embodied peace, and peace that carries over into daily life becomes the norm for one who is on an ongoing Reiki regimen. Mental and emotional, as well as physical healing brings its own degree of peace and clarity. Yet the peace

thus found is only the first stage of the peace spectrum. We are in essence spiritual beings, and Reiki is primarily spiritually motivated healing. Very simply put, spiritual healing is to erase the ignorance of what we are as metaphysical entities. We then evolve to accepting our true nature as real, and expressing it in every way. Physical, emotional and mental healing misidentifies us from the delusion that we are our bodies and neuroses.

When an issue is resolved on any of these levels we feel stronger and freer. If the resolution is profound enough recurrence is stemmed. Yet the physical, emotional and mental dimension is an ever-changing, uncertain terrain open to all manner of influences.

Healing on these levels is an indispensable beachhead, perhaps to be termed as being at peace with oneself. Yet final victory lies in the all-healing power of the spiritual. This is because the other levels are but an expression or extension of our spiritual self the soul. They have only a limited reality and can heal us conditionally.

The attraction of the spiritual dimension is that it can expand us to being at peace with all people, all conditions and all things. Then you may know that you are not only at peace

but that you are peace. This is a permanent inner state unruffled by any influence. Spiritual resources, like love and health, are constant, ever-full and ever-giving. Our ability to tap them is greatly dependent on not becoming complacent with a little material happiness, human relationship and average health. Our entire journey is spiritual. We are so seduced by the information that our senses impart to us about the world that we are unable to entertain

the vastness and multi-dimensionality of Reality. We so easily become creatures of needs and desires. No matter how hard we try consumerism fails to replace true fulfillment. The stress created by a manic and unending reaching out instead of diving in is the cause of our increasingly unmanageable ills worldwide. Life also offers daily opportunities for engaging in noble and worthy goals and aspirations. These must be taken. Satisfying relationships, material comfort, nature, art, technology, good food, life as we know it on the planet can be very beautiful and inspiring. Yet when these expressions are treated as demi-gods and become an end in themselves, we create an unimaginable trap. To not fall in at all or extricate ourselves when we do is the ultimate healing work we are here to do.

Be grounded in your being and changing circumstances cannot touch you. Your being is eternal and powerful. That power has been given away to extraneous things. Healing is proper management of personal energy. We are born with an endowment of ever-replenished resources. To be spiritually healed is to be so connected to these resources that you are never depleted.

Every time you use Reiki your being rests in the connection of love, the love that runs the universe. If love can prevent planets from colliding, and it does, think what it can do for you. Your being is this love. Your cells also store and run on the love of Spirit. Reiki awakens this pure feeling and lets it flow abundantly. The Divine is smiling at you from the nucleus of your molecules. Smile back and come to the home of your soul. From there you will be convinced that you are stronger than the circumstances of your life.

Reiki Meditations

Grounding Meditation:

Grounding means to relax deeply into your body, to be totally present. To be a really effective Reiki healer it is important to remain grounded each day.

Lesson Eight~ Reiki Levels

Lets call lesson 8 all the links for all the hand positions that I just posted. I will also go over the different levels of Reiki certification just for your own informational purposes. The good news is that I believe I can certify all of you as Reiki levels 1 & 2, not just at the level one. I have been doing some thinking & see how it is just as easy to certify you for both levels as it is to certify you for the one level. Reiki Level 1

Level 1 is pretty basic. You will be attuned to the Usui Reiki Energy. You will learn how to give (and will also receive) a full Reiki treatment, self treatment, and a quick treatment. You will also learn the basics of energy management, healing vibrations, the chakra system, the aura and the power of thought.

(Nothing too mysterious about receiving Reiki, just lay on the table & relax. When you are a Reiki healer it helps to call in your own Reiki while another Reiki healer, works on you. In fact, anytime you get a healing, from a western medical doctor, or Acupuncture, or even a massage, call in your Reiki to increase the power of that healing).

Reiki Level 2: You will be attuned to the second level of Reiki and learn the healing symbols specific to it. You will also receive a grounding attunement to keep your feet on the ground and your energy well-balanced. You will learn about and experience healing at a distance, cleansing and energizing rooms, preparing meetings and exams etc. as well as using Reiki to manifest ideas.

Reiki Level 3: Master Practitioner Level
You will be attuned to the third level of Reiki and learn the Master Usui healing symbol. You will learn to create your own crystal healing and manifestation grid, perform psychic surgery as well as cleanse and heal auras.This is a powerful level of energy management and requires time and preparation of the first two levels before embarking on this journey.

Reiki Level 4: Reiki Master – Teaching Level
The highest level of Reiki – the teaching level. You will be initiated into this level and will learn the teaching symbols as well as revising all the other levels and symbols. We will also revise and expand working with aura’s, chakra balancing, scanning and psychic surgery. You will practice and experience how to give attunements and we will discuss the giving of Reiki seminars and setting up a Reiki Practice.

Lesson Four ~ Reiki Treatments

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

During a treatment you relax, fully clothed normally, but not necessarily, on a couch or seated while the healer holds his hands on you. A treatment can last an hour or longer depending on the treatment required. In the western world many practitioners use the standard hand positions and commonly a full treatment is given covering all the important organs of the body.

There is no pressure on the body making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions, sometimes hands are even held slightly away from the body if the patient is uncomfortable with touch. The energy flows wherever it is required all on its own. It can actually be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience for both the healer, who benefits from treating others as this healing energy moves through & heals them, & for the patient who gets a direct dose of the Reiki into their body.

Reiki is an effective healing method that can be used for many ailments like reducing stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma – respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, anxiety and many more. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.) Reiki – a powerful and gentle healer Promotes natural self-healing Balances the energies in the body Balances the organs and glands Strengthens the immune system Treats symptoms and causes of illness Relieves pain Clears toxins Adapts to the natural needs of the receiver Enhances personal awareness Relaxes and reduces stress Promotes creativity Releases blocked and suppressed feelings Aids meditation and positive thinking & Heals holistically.

Reiki is easy to learn & anyone can “learn” Reiki. The word learn is not quite right as most of us cannot just read about Reiki and then do it. The ability to use Reiki is normally given via an attunement or initiation. There are 3 levels of Reiki: Reiki 1 and 2 and the Master level. Once attuned Reiki is easy to use and your ability to use Reiki will never leave you! Reiki will enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels: Eastern medical philosophy has always emphasized the superiority of maintaining good health over curing illness.

Reiki is a preventive medicine par excellence. But it is even more: When practicing Reiki on yourself or others, you experience both its preventive and its curative functions at the same time. If you have a disease, Reiki will cure it, if not; Reiki will promote your health and longevity. This preventive cum curative quality of Reiki makes it a unique healing system. It is natural to be healthy. It is only when certain parts of our bodies fail to function naturally that sickness occurs. The causes may be from bacteria and viruses, organic (toxins) or psychosomatic. Bacteria and viruses are always present in our bodies, but they are kept in check (sometimes even exploited to do useful work for us) as long as our bodies function naturally. Toxins are continually clogging our organs, but as long as we function naturally, these toxins will be neutralized by the chemicals produced by our body.

Our brain is continually stressed, but again, if nature runs its course we will be adequately relieved after sleep and rest. The Eastern concept of health is also wider than that of the West. To be healthy is not just to be free from disease. A person cannot be called healthy if he/she is often restless, irritable or extremely forgetful, cannot concentrate or sleep soundly, and has no zest for work or play.

How does Reiki promote health? First, it frees us from disease; it prevents as well as cures illness. Then it helps us to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually, giving us the wonderful benefits of health in its wider sense. The preventive and curative qualities of Reiki can be reduced to two simple principles: the cleansing of meridians and balancing of the chakras to achieve a harmonious energy flow. How does Reiki prevent or cure contagious diseases? When disease-causing micro-organisms attack certain parts of the body, reserve energy is channeled to meet these attacks, however when the meridians are blocked, then the flow of reserve energy is hindered, and illness results.

When using Reiki you cleanse the meridians, harmonizing energy levels and promote a smooth flow of reserve energy to the areas under attack, thus restoring the balance. Practicing Reiki increases our reserves of energy, thus preventing any possible future outbreak of illness.
