Question about Reiki
Any reiki practioners here?

I was wondering if you could tell me what the reiki practioner is supposed to be doing when giving the treatment. what are they supposed to be visualising or doing to be giving you universal life force energy besides putting their hands on you?

Re: Question about Reiki
The reiki practitioner is attuned to channel ki using symbols which provide a "characteristic" to the ki being channeled.

The reiki practitioner is usually taught that they are the channel for information. Beginning a session requires grounding, meditation and prayer where guides and higher self is contacted and any information that comes through, comes through those in attendance.

Then come the hands on the different parts, sometimes its intuitive to use direct touch, sometimes beaming, sometimes toning or chanting - depending on what the healee is comfortable with.

Messages may come through at certain parts of the process, images, sounds or phrases ... depending on relaxed state of patient one can either discuss it during the session or afterwards.

Usually there's a lot of energy at the joints and childhood memories felt in the knee joints.

AT the end the practitioner grounds the healee and may discuss the reading with them, especially the messages.
These messages are of a personal nature and usually hold keys to what is creating physical / mental / emotional imbalance in the first place.

Re: Question about Reiki
I didn't proof read it ... made an ammendment or two Deletions are in (brackets) round-brackets.

The reiki practitioner is attuned to channel ki using symbols which provide a "characteristic" to the ki being channeled.

- These symbols are placed in the auric field during the attunement process and their use alters the type and context of the ki being channeled. If you look around you can find these symbols, I for one don't agree that they should be hidden, but at the same time will not reveal them unless attuning someone to use them. I am an Usui and Karuna Reiki master ... but I don't teach, I heal and I have NEVER received money for a healing or reading session I have given.

The reiki practitioner is usually taught that they are the channel for (information) energy and that's it, no ego.

Yes, for 26 years.

Google search "traditional reiki" and "western reiki" most western reiki is a sham designed to fleece you of as much cash as possible, traditional reiki is given without the need for payment, although often gifts of food were accepted.

Healers who do it for a living, need to make some money in order to live. Be realistic.

They may be channeling energy for free, but they don't get free rent, free housing, free schooling, free education, free books, free electricity / gas.

Some masters accept money for the attunement - because lets face it human beings don't always appreciate that which they get for free ... and the treatments should be charged for ... they take time and focus.

The only reason I do them for free is I have a well paying job and I can afford to do them for free. If my job fell through, darn right I'd charge.

Not quite true. It is morally acceptable for the Reiki practitioner to get paid for his/her time....this usually entails an exchange of energy such as money, food or a gift. If Reiki is given free, it is generally not valued - unfortunate fact of life these days.

If you care to check out the nature of plasma/the Electric Universe, it's perfectly evident that universal energy exists and what exactly it is. It's the stuff of all life.

What Reiki does is balance/replenish at a cellular and auric level. It's an intelligent energy. The recipient chooses to absorb the channelled energy or he/she doesn't. Free will all the way.

Re: Question about Reiki
no one has answered my question yet.

what do they actually do whilst they have their hands on them? do they just stand there whistling to themselves playing a song over in their head? or are they actually visualising something happening?

Wasn't it described as you were expecting?

What goes on in anybody's head when they're working on anything?

USUALLY the REIKI Practitioner is Focussed on channeling symbols to the person being healed and on calmly thinking nothing. The energy comes out automatically, the pratcitioner is just a channel. Visualising the reiki symbols helps, but its not essential ... it works differently for different people.

Why don't you do more research on google if you want to know more about it, it seems like you're not being receptive o the information you've been sent.

In order to explain how the symbols "get in there" ... they go for an attunement process...

My apologies I was incomplete in my description ... these symbols are used during the channel, but its the smallest part of it.

Between Karuna and Usui I have about 15 symbols to work with, while treating I rely on what the person with me expects plus I get a feeling about which symbols to channel and sometimes I am only ever directed to use two of them ....

Its about channeling but its also about listening.

I should have made my explanation clearer, I hope its clearer for you.

Re: Question about Reiki
I personally feel for hotspots and with my hands try to smooth it all out. I also try to take whats wrong with them into myself, mix it all around and give anything postive left over to the person.

If you get sick mildly yourself and exibit the persons own sypmtoms, albeit mildly, you know you have done your job.

Be forewarned though that not everything can be fixed and that the will to live is most important of all.

Many people are self destructive in tis regard.

Re: Question about Reiki
There are varying assessments of how far back the roots of Tibetan medicine can be traced. Some people claim that it dates back to the 7th century AD, to the occasion of an international medical conference when physicians and scholars from India, China, Nepal, Byzantium, and Persia were invited to Tibet to discuss their healing traditions and translate their medical texts into Tibetan. Others trace a 3000-year old tradition pre-dating Buddhism and reflecting the Bon medicine shamanistic traditions that still influence the practice of Tibetan medicine.

From my archives:
Sogyal Rinpoche suggests that seeing someone in pain, in person or on the news, could inspire us to meditate on compassion. "Any one of these sights could open the eyes of your heart to the fact of vast suffering in the world. Let it. Don't waste the love and grief it arouses; in the moment you feel compassion welling up in you, don't brush it aside, don't shrug it off and try quickly to return to 'normal,' don't be afraid of your feeling or embarrassed by it, or allow yourself to be distracted from it or let it run aground in apathy. Be vulnerable; use that quick, bright uprush of compassion; focus on it, go deep in your heart and meditate on it, develop it, enhance, and deepen it. By doing this you will realize how blind you have been to suffering, how the pain that you are experiencing or seeing now is only a tiny fraction of the pain of the world.
end archives

And this ""Compared to any medical treatment or cure, the Six Syllables [Om Mani Padme Hum] are the strongest remedy against sickness and evil."
Guru Rinpoche

Reiki is a two part Japanese word for an ancient Tibetan therapy, The essence of Reiki is absorbing the healing energy of the Universe and transferring it through our hands to another living creature. We are all born with that Universal Life Energy since it is the energy of Life. The practitioner gathers these energies and directs these energies to the person being treated.

Western reiki due to the simplicity and usability a confusing amount of 'new' reiki branches have been developed. Most of these reiki styles are based loosely (in some cases very loosely) on the original Usui Reiki Ryoho. Western reiki "masters" have changed the attunement ceremony, added new symbols, more levels, new ways to work with the reiki, taken methods out of the system or included techniques from other modalities.

Some people state that they have received channeled information from spiritual beings, archangels, and ascended masters. Some claim to be working with energy that is of an higher vibration, or from other healing rays. Some claim to activate your DNA. Many founders of off-shoot branches have trademarked their system. Such is the way of the West.

If you wish to experience true energy healing go to the Chinese quarter of a large city and ask around for the "healer who uses his hands" but don't expect to see a dedicated building. If you take my advice come back and tell me what you have experienced.

Nice reply..And thanks! hf

OP....to get the best out of Reiki you will need to try it, i.e. live it...get the mind out of the way and let the heart in.

All I would say is ensure you feel the practitioner is someone with integrity whom you could trust. Energy work is a two-way process and the person giving has to be respectful and act as if the energy were sacred, AND be someone you can confide in.

You don't find Reiki...it finds you! LOL!

This is why formal initiation is recommended. We can ALL heal but what Reiki teaches you is that you channel the energy through yr own chakras into the recipient's aura. If you don't channel, you will use your own energy, which isn't really conducive to your own health.

Reiki healers should feel refreshed after a healing, not tired.

Also, as you say, they are not to feel responsible about outcomes because everyone has their own paths and their own free will about their destiny. It's not the healer that's doing the healing...it's actually the universe and the recipient...this is really important because it quells the ego of the healer.

The healer is the channel for Universal Energy, there should be no drain on the healer at all.

I have met healers who "take on" the burden of their clients and proudly walk around talking about it.

I understand that this makes one feel needed, important, necessary and somewhat appropriate in cases ... but this may be co-dependant behaviour that should be acknowledged ... You can't heal the world without healing yourself first ... its always tempting and seems to be the obvious road to enlightenment but its denial.

Aye, I neither want nor need recognition. I do it for them, not for me though I understand sometimes the healer needs healed themselves.

Thank for the advise, I will try this approach of using other energy instead of my own. hf

Life energy is like water, the healer is the pipe through which the water flows, directing that flow to where it is most needed, when the flow stops the pipe remains full, you start and end with the same amount of "chi" energy, consider the idea of washing a path clean or watering whithered plants, the energy benefits the receiver and the practitioner enjoys the sense of positive achievement.

Agreed, holding negative energy is unhealthy, if you feel "drained" unwell or otherwise not centered after a session it is important to go off and quietly rebalance yourself.
