What is Reiki?

Reiki: ("RAY-kee") A Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy. Reiki is based on the belief that when spiritual energy is channeled through a reiki practitioner, the patient's spirit is healed, which in turn heals the physical body.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "Universal Energy or Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is kind of a "spiritually guided life force energy.

Developed / Rediscovered in Japan by Dr. Usui, it has become a much more common method of energy healing and is still becoming more popular today.

Just for today, I will give thanks for everything.
Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will live my life honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.

Reiki can heal for more than just the physical body. It can heal the mental and spiritual body. And sometimes it does not heal at all. Sometimes it can make us face our greatest fears, bring worries…Continue

Yes, Asmodais, it is an interesting book, but overall it is kind of pointless to have. There is a lot of information about reiki outthere, and you can find the same information in that book online. But, the only reason it is pointless to have that book is because it can not give you the ability to practice Reiki. It does not attune you. It can teach you about the attunement process, and it can tell you tons of different techniques, once again, which you can find online. But it does not attune you or give you the ability to practice reiki. Pointless to have.

Ok! My interest has been piqued!

"Magick of Reiki: Focused Energy for Healing, Ritual, & Spiritual Development" by Christopher Penczak Is a really good book to buy also that gives the symbols and overview of different Reiki systems.

Thank you Sang for the suggestion and for the very sage advice :)
Sangraal Comment by Sangraal on December 1, 2010 at 10:41pm
For the record, I have attuned nine people to date. Five of which took the second, and one as Master. Total profit= $0.00

There's zero evidence that Usui charged for Attunements. He 'discovered' it after an inquiry of seeking the universal healing system within all of the religions. It only became tradition to rob people post Takata.

Okay, now that I got that out of my system, hello folks. :)

"The Essential Reiki" by Diane Stein, Jennifer.

It's rather infamous in that she published...well, about everything about Reiki. It does not bother me, really, all of the symbols are painted on his temple, and there is no evidence it was meant to be a real 'secret'. Most of the folks that get pissed about it are those that had to take out a loan to pay for their Attunements, which is idea supported by The Reiki Alliance, whose point of view on it...well, they can shove it and treat each other afterwards.

I highly recommend getting an attunement if you are going to practice it. It's essentially an initiation and ti passing on of the current. I also recommend staying away from those that charge large amounts for any service. They only want to attune their fingers to your pocketbook, that's all.
