The Universal Life Force

REI KI is the Japanese for Universal Life force but known as Reiki (pronounced rayky) The form of Reiki known to the Western world is Usui Shiki Ryoho. It is easily learnt by any one and can be used on a daily basis for treating friends, family or yourself, your pets and other animals.

Reiki follows no set religion. It is the belief that there is the power within every one to heal others and themselves. The Reiki master can train you to harness your inner energy and apply it to healing. Thought to originate with the Buddist way of life, Reiki has been around for a long time. Jesus healed by the laying on of hands.

Reiki is a therapy which should be treated separately from other techniques, although it is able to amplify the beneficial results of other forms of treatment.. It is best carried out in silence so that the person being treated is allowed to receive the treatment in a restful, other worldly state. Some patients prefer soft music. It should be their choice. Meditation plays a big part in going to the next level or the Second Degree.

People who practise Reiki find that the simple and comforting placing of hands has had a profound effect on their lives and consciousness. Self confidence has been raised, addictions overcome and goals met. Reiki has changed their lives.The power to heal themselves has been in their own hands all along.

I have been fortunate that Reiki Master, Sandi Lear-Shuffrey has been visiting me and explaining Reiki and its concepts. Sandi has written a new book in the Teach Yourself range called "Get Started in Reiki". This has been a time of enlightenment and I am grateful to her for this.

Reiki is easily learned and puts its power in your own hands. With the escalating cost of health care, it would only seem sensible to learn how to treat yourself or your family in the privacy of your own home before resorting to the more expensive alternative. More and more people these days cannot afford health insurance so this would be a sensible course to take. Courses are available in most countries and usually last two days. Two days well spent! I wish you peace, love and good health.

Welcome Eagle Spirit. I am delighted you have become my fan and have taken time to coment. I enjoy writing hubs very much but I think you have to have very many hubs to make any money at it. I'm aiming at 100. Thank you again for the kind comment.

I was initiated into reiki many years ago and have full faith in its powers to heal. While I admit that I am not a serious practitioner...I don't do 'full body reiki' every day - I find that 'spot reiki' works for aches and pains - in fact my hands automatically go to the part of my body that's giving me trouble!

I like this one! So much positivity on a positive topic. I met you in an atheist's hub saying "interesting" and was curious what you found interesting in in it...I see here why and it made me laugh so hard. Big fan of Reiki myself.

Reiki is easily learned and puts its power in your own hands.

I think this sentence explains perfectly why Reiki is spreading so much all over the world. I've discussed why it works in my hubs but the point is that it works. A practice like that would have disappeared if not useful, while we know it dates back thousands years. You addressed perfectly the point why Reiki works. Rated up. :)

I am very thankful that you wrote this. There is so much many of us (including myself) have yet to learn. I found this quite useful (to say the least).

All the very best!

Hi Mr Happy, my best friend in England is a Reiki Master and has written a book on the subject "Teach Yourself Reiki". I think many of these healing methods have been seriously underrated like Reiki and EFT. Glad you found it useful. Strange you should read it today as I noted that nobody has read this hub this month -- til now! Best to you :)

Thank you for sharing this information. I tend to read on specific topics ... there are things I want to learn about and my path is getting narrower.

Cheers!
