If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough. - Albert Einstein
Nature with all of its magnificent power and perfection does not need any embellishments. Natural order, and all that is associated with it, is wonderful in its own right.
Reiki is part of that natural order. Reiki is a natural healing modality that is intuitive, instinctive, and very easy to learn.
Unfortunately our cultural experience has impressed upon us many unrealistic ideas. One of which is that something that’s simple is somehow of lesser value. When speaking of natural order and universal laws this idea is simply foolishness. If it’s natural then it can be simple and extremely valuable and relevant.
We are always healing. Our connection to nature endows us with a continual state of healing that affects our whole self. This life force energy that connects us to the source responds to our intention and focus. When practicing Reiki we focus our intention to healing and this helps to facilitate the natural process.
Yes, it is simple. Focus on healing and we get more healing. It’s simple, yet powerful and wonderfully perfect as with all of the magnificence of natural order.
The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can never be created or destroyed only changed from one form to another.
All matter and energy are regarded as equivalent. Therefore all matter cannot be destroyed only transitioned to another form.
All energy is in constant motion, therefore constantly changing. Change is the law of nature. This law of change was wonderfully described by William W. Atkinson in 1911 in the “The Mastery of Being” .He wrote:
“All nature and all the universe is in a constant state of flux. Everything changing its shape, form or activities from the moment of its creation. Everything is in constant motion from the atoms to suns, from universe to electrons. Nothing remains the same for two consecutive moments . . . nothing stands still.”
This endless eternal transformation of energy is happening all around and within you. Mentally and physically you are constantly changing. You are, in fact, a creative process.
This constant change provides endless potential for beneficial change. Each and every moment is an infinite possibility that you may evolve into the finite realities of your desires.
This creative process of change is ordered by our intention. Intention brings change. Imagination brings change. Thoughts become actions.
We are always healing and our energy responds to intention. Reiki is effective because of those two simple facts of natural order. When practicing Reiki we focus our intention to healing and this helps to facilitate the natural process.
Reiki intention: I am always in a natural state of healing and this infinitely wise energy will always provide for my highest good.
Reiki intention; life enhancing healing energy is always flowing into my life. I use it for my good and the good of others and I am grateful for this good.
Reiki intention: This life force energy responds to my focus and will radiate good health and wellness to every cell in my body.
Reiki intention: This energy of infinite wisdom will always provide for my whole self as I enter into a comfortable state of being.
Reiki intention: I am one with magnificent perfection and infinite wisdom and I enjoy the process of healing.
Our physical self is always healing itself. Always! There can be no reasonable or legitimate denying of this very simple fact. When something, anything, affects our body it will immediately begin to heal. We are always in a natural state of healing. Always! With Reiki we have a conscious intention of this healing. Reiki is a heightened state of awareness and acceptance of this healing. Reiki is an energy healing modality, a healing of intent, which is comfortably aligned with the most basic laws of the universe and the natural world.
Energy is everything and everywhere. It reacts with our bodies internally and externally. This is not a new concept. Most Eastern systems of medicine have always been based on these ideas.
All matter is simply slow moving energy. Einstein stated that all matter, energy, time, and space are relative to each other. These elements are also directly related and affected by the presence of a human observer. Any experiment will always be affected by the presence, attitude, and intention of the experimenter.
With Reiki we choose an intention of healing. It is an attitude that expects the total wellness of the whole self. This includes all aspects of the physical, mental, and spiritual self.
Much of the way we think about ourselves is gained through distorted information we accumulate from our culture and our mundane lives. Sadly, these misconceptions regarding our essential nature have caused many to develop poor habits that deny them an opportunity to experience true spiritual awakening.
To better understand self one must become familiar with the multiple dimensions of our being and the intelligent energy that works through these dimensions of spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical self. This understanding will lead to embodiment, realizing the divine self within and then manifesting it in our physical form. The enlightened self is able to make use of this power for healing, personal growth, and experiencing a better connection with the creative source.
This path of self discovery begins with accepting and engaging the multidimensional self and the energy that moves through it. The physical body is made of the same matrix of energy that surrounds and composes all matter. We are part of a quantum field that is present everywhere with the potential to manifest as a material substance or the energy around it. All physical matter is simply a more dense concentration of this energy field. Because all matter including ourselves is connected, we are able to affect and be affected by one another and the whole of the universe.
The individual consciousness is able to engage the essential energy of all creation for a wealth of personal power. This empowerment allows us to create the life that we desire and the ability to share unconditional love with the all of existence.
Take back your power.
Definitions: The word Reiki is a Japanese term and refers to the Universal Life Force (ULF). Reiki is a traditional form of energy healing that originated in Japan with Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s.
Origins: Reiki is a method of harnessing the ULF that exists in all living things and in the world around us. We are born with the ability to heal others and ourselves. It is encoded into our genetic material and is instinctive. The first thing a child will do when injured, is put their hand on the painful area and hold it, maybe jump up and down, and cry. These are all actions designed to help relieve the pain and speed healing on its way. Pain is our physical body’s way of bringing our intent and focus to an injured area to promote healing as well as avoiding the injury in the future. Pain is soothed by touch, especially warm, soothing touch such as a mother’s hand when caring for her young ones. The healing power of touch is well documented throughout history. It often plays a strong part of hero tales and theological mythos. Animals intuitively recognize the power of Reiki and are drawn to it.
General: Many people mistakenly believe that Reiki is a religion. Reiki is a science and is nonsecular. It is not part of any particular religion and can be used by people of any belief. However, healing through touch has been the founding ministry of many religious paths as well as the origins of modern medicine.
