Meaning and History of Reiki, Why Reiki Must not be Given Free How to Become a Reiki Master
I thank my teacher for guiding me to this white light.
Founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in the mid 18th century.The miraculous power of Reiki is well known and has universal appeal. The history of Reiki dates back to many centuries and was used by many to heal health and other problems. This method of healing is also termed as 'laying of hands technique' or the 'healing touch'. The white light is the healing source which is accessed from the universe. Even Jesus used this healing energy to heal lepers, which is mentioned in history.
One of the students of Dr. Usi enquired about this healing technique and he was not able to answer. Thus he went in search of this healing method and energy universal force. After travelling far east, India and many other places he came upon the teachings of Buddha, which gave him a sense of direction towards his search. He learned the teachings of Buddha which are termed 'sutras' or 'lotus sutras', and after meditation for 21 days he was blessed with the white light , Reiki.
Getting this power in him he came back and healed beggars for many years and then allowed them to return to the society to live by earning their living. To his utter disappointment, the beggars returned back to begging as this was much easier. hence from then he decided that never to give Reiki free of charge.
Thus came the Reiki principles for everyone to follow.
1) Just for today do not worry.
2) Just for today do not anger.
3) Honour your parents, teachers and elders.
4) Earn your living honestly.
5) Show attitude of gratitude to everyone.
These simple principles when followed are sure shot for success in this life and the next. Also healing the past karma for the betterment of this life.
He started preaching and teaching Reiki to all those willing to learn. Lady Takata, an American women who had cancer started treatement from him and was healed. Her passion for Reiki made her learn this technique and she became a Grand Master in Reiki and spread this healing through out the rest of the world. Thus we thank all those involved in the learning and spreading of Reiki and this is a very important principle of any Reiki Master to thank all those for whom they are here.
This is a very universal energy healing method and irrespective of age, sex, religion anybody can have access to it. There is also no fear of over dose or under dose as the energy goes only to that place where required and only till that much time it is requried.
Usually Reiki Teachers teach Reiki only to those who are very much interested in this. Some years back it had become a fashion to attend Reiki seminars, but many of them have just treated it as a past time hobby, without respecting this energy, and hence are unaware of the healing they have got. A simple Reiki seminar is just for informative purposes. A teacher has to give attuments to the healer to become open to this energy life force. Only a Master can do this who has done Grand Master Degree. There are basically three degrees in the whole process of learning Reiki.
The first degree involves the teacher teaching simple principles and exercises to open up the chakras of the student. This session on completion, the teacher guides the student to follow these principles and exercises daily for 21 days. When the teacher is convinced of the dedication and interest of the student , only then they are allowed to do the second degree. This is more difficult and requires strong will and focus. The student has to follow the exercises and chakras regime without fail. The opening of chakras is necessary for the student to become a pure , clean channel (these healers are termed as channels as they are just a medium of transferring energy from the universe to others).
Then comes the third degree where the teacher attunes symbols and guided student to use them effectively. These symbols increase the energy force many times and thus helps in healing faster. From then all healing sessions require the use of these symbols which the teacher makes the student learn by heart. As from then all healings will be done with the use of these symbols along with white light.
Then comes the Grand Master degree, very few reach here. Those interested in teaching Reiki have to do this degree. Here the Reiki Master learns to tap the potential of Ki energy. This is the energy that is latent in every individual. Exercises and attunemnets from the Grand Master makes the Reiki student a Grand Master, from here they can teach Reiki and pass on attunements to others. Reiki in advanced form also involves psychic surgery and aura cleansing, clearing of negativities, clearing of past karma,etc.
Thank You and All the Best!
