in Reiki

By TarotMeister, CTM

The modern world is full of situations which bring on stress, it's just natural for people to look for natural ways to relieve their stress. Instead of turning to medications and other TarotMeistermainstream "therapies" that offer the promise of relief and comfort, people are turning to ancient ways to relieve their stress, such as Reiki.

The Japanese word "Reiki" gives referrence to unique method, of stress-reduction. Ultimately used to relieve the aches and pains which are brought on by too much stress, Reiki is known to bring about relaxation and healing not only of the physical body but, additionally, the spirit and soul.

Healing by the "laying on of hands," this method for healing is said to be effective by using an invisible power of life energy that surges in every living and breathing entity.

In the premise of Reiki, it is thought that when the level of ones Life Force Energy is very low, he/she is most likely to be stressed out more often and have an elevated predilection to get sick or ill than the people with an elevated level of Life Force Energy.

In Reiki, it has also been proven that those living healthy, stress-free and happy lives possess a high level of Life Force Energy which helps them to have a more optimistic outlook on life. They also have an improved capability to stand up to life's challenges.

Founded by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Tendai Buddhist, in 1922, Reiki has become an extremely popular form of alleviating stress to people all over the world. Since its discovery, Reiki has developed into a variety of techniques and has been employed by many Reiki  practitioners around the globe.

Reiki, A Technique Of Healing

Reiki is being used by more and more people in the past few years because it is showing such significant results. Most of the people who have tried Reiki say, it is a  Reiki Symbolwonderful solution for stress-reduction. This is because they're not having to spend so  much money in buying calming medication that can have severe side effects. And they also don't have to go through uncomfortable exercises and/or expensive courses of therapy, either physical and/or emotional.

Reiki is considered a wonderful means of relaxation because it uses the inherent heat and energy in a person. Then, the energy is transformed into a "purer" variety of energy—relaxing the person from the stress of a busy schedule and the hustle, bustle of modern living. Those who have tried Reiki say that it doesn't only treat their physical body but also eases the tension of their emotions, quiets their frenzied mind, and repairs a weakened spirit.

When one is relieved of all these disturbing physical and emotional encumberments, he/she will receive benefit from a relaxing Reiki session in just about any environment because the calmness and serenity are are stimulated within his or her own system.

Unlike other relaxation methods, Reiki is one of the most simple and natural means of healing a ones spirit. In fact, it is so safe that nearly everybody can receive benefit from it. When used appropriately, Reiki can be of incalculable value to all health and emotional troubles.

We are told that, in order to make use of the Reiki correctly, one must attend a class where the "ability" is transmitted. Through an "attunement" given by a Reiki master, one can easily learn to convert his or her natural energy into a healthy and beneficial use.

According to this belief, the student is guided by the master in tapping into his/her Life Force Energy and utilizing it for improving his/her life as well as the lives of others.

But, there's another viewpoint on this that has a lot of merit: Since the Life Force Energy is an integral part of us all, It is not necessary to have another person to "attune" us to it. It's possible to "attune" ourselves, like Mikao Usui, the "father" of Reiki, "attuned" himself. We just need to be shown how to do it. There are a few Reiki Masters on the Web who will train us to "attune" ourselves, quite easily. You CAN learn how to heal others and yourself with Reiki. Search for Chikara-Reiki-Do on Google to find out how....
