All About Reiki Healing
Hello Friend! Welcome to AllAboutReiki. Hopefully I can answer any questions you have about Reiki…
Most people ‘find’ Reiki Healing due to three main reasons:
1. Your Own Health Problems
Do you have a health condition that just won’t go away? Or perhaps you’re currently seeking medical treatments but also want to explore complementary options? Maybe you have emotional, mental or spiritual troubles and are seeking a remedy?
2. Loved Ones with Health Problems
Perhaps you’re currently caring for a ill family member or friend and desire a way to better help them heal? Whether you’re caring for a spouse with Cancer, a baby with Colic or a friend that has emotional issues Reiki might be a solution for you.
3. As a Career Opportunity
Many people that find Reiki are already working within the health care and complementary healing field. Reiki can be used as a supplemental offering or provided as a full time service.

How Does Reiki Healing Work?
The best way to find out is to book yourself in for a Reiki Healing! To find a Reiki practitioner simply visit Google and type in “Reiki Practitioners in XYZ” where you enter your location rather than XYZ.
When receiving a Reiki Healing you will lay on a massage table and the practitioner will either hover their hands above you or place them right on your body. There is a set sequence of hand positions that the Reiki healer will go through and the whole process tends to take 1 to 1.5 hours. When the Reiki practitioner hovers his or her hands over your body they will be channeling Reiki energy through them to you.
The energy comes from a higher power so the Reiki practitioner is more like a conduit rather than a ‘healer.’ Some people feel warmth, coldness, tingles, energy moving slowly or quickly and others don’t feel much at all. Whatever is needed for the ‘patient’ is sent by the higher power rather than the ‘healer,’ so if the patient needs healing on a particular level (mental, emotion, physical, spiritual) they will get what is most appropriate for them.
With all the stresses brought by the modern world, it is only common for people to look for alternatives in relieving their stress. Aside from relying on medications and other treatments that give the promise of comfort and relaxation, people are now turning to ancient means of relieving stress such as Reiki.
The Japanese word “Reiki” refers to a unique technique that is used for reducing stress. Ultimately used to relieve aches brought on by too much stress, Reiki is also used to aid relaxation and healing not only of the person’s physical body but also of his or her soul and spirit.
Administered by “laying on hands,” this technique for healing is believed to be effective through the use of an invisible force of life energy that flows in every living and breathing individual.
In the concept of Reiki, it is believed that when the level of a person’s life force energy is incredibly low, he or she will likely be stressed out more often and have a higher tendency to get sick or ill compared to those people with a high level of life energy force.
In Reiki, it is also proven that those people who are living healthy, stress-free and happy lives possess a high level of life force energy, which enables them to have a positive outlook in life. These people also have a greater capability to face the challenges of everyday living.
Developed by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Tendai Buddhist in the year 1922, Reiki has been a very popular form of relieving stress for people all over the world. Since its discovery, the technique Reiki has evolved in various forms and has been practiced by numerous Reiki masters across the globe.
What Did I Think About My First Reiki Healing Experience?
When I first went to see a Reiki Healer, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had a lot of stress in my life and felt that I was going to collapse from mental and physical exhaustion. I worked 80 hours a week and simply couldn’t see the wood through the trees! Upon arrival, I sat with the Reiki Healer and explained my issues. She was really nice and just listed to all that I had to say. She then explained what she was going to do…I hoped up on the massage chair and let her do her magic.
I felt all sorts of sensations! I feel heat and energy moving through me. I became extremely relaxed and felt very peaceful. I tried not to think too much and focused on feeling, but there’s not right or wrong about these type of things. You can fall asleep and some sort of healing will still take place. After the first session I definitely felt better and after three sessions I felt as if I was moving through life easier.
Over the course of 6 months my life drastically changed and I attribute Reiki to helping me through the change. I quit my job, started meditation and worked on following my heart. I was so impressed with the clarity and healing (mentally, physcially and emotionally) of Reiki that I became a healer myself.
My decision to become a Reiki Healer was not a career choice. I decided to learn Reiki and recieve the attunement so that I could channel Reiki energy through me to heal myself and my family members. I have a 2 year old daughter and use Reiki on her ever time I cuddle! And my husband (a non-believer) comes to be to solve his headaches, backaches and restless sleep issues.
Learn Reiki healing to heal yourself and/or others!
If you’re thinking about learning Reiki to benefit yourself, others or as a profession there is an excellent home study course available. Rather than pay a Reiki practioner over and over again, if you simply learn the art of Reiki you can not only help to increase your well-being but you can also use the energy on babies, friends, family members and pets.
Reiki training is different when you are a beginner compared to someone who has already been introduced to it. I will talk about the first four levels to give you an idea of what actually happens.
During level one, the instructor will introduce you to the energy. Here, you get to develop a relationship with it by learning how to work with it, how it feels through your body and the effects on using this on yourself and others.
Over the course of two days, you will learn the 4 attunements. There will be enough time given to allow your system to settle into the new space and after a 21 day cleansing session, you will no longer feel any negative energy in your system.
Level two Reiki training should be done at least two months after you have completed level one. During this time, your vibration level should be much higher.
This is also a two day training course where you will receive another attunement that will increase your vibration and make you familiar with three of the four Reiki symbols. You will learn here how to make each of these symbols work and after a couple of days, you will again have to undergo a 21 day cleaning period to remove any negative energy that you may have.
Most people do not go beyond level two because they are already happy with what they have learned. But for those who want to push on and even become a master, they can continue on their way to level three.
It is recommended that you wait at least 6 to 12 months before you take level 3. When you are ready, you will again undergo a two day session so you may receive your final attunement. There is another 21 day cleaning period.
From here, we go to the fourth and final level where you will be taught how to become both a master and a teacher so you may also teach those who want to learn about the Reiki. What makes this different from the first three levels is that you will be taught now from an instructor’s perspective.
This will enable you to come up with your own lesson plans and manuals that you will distribute to your students. You will also learn about boundaries and ethics being a Master Teacher. You might even be given a test by creating a level one training course, which you will use to treat new comers.
Reiki training is now available in some institutions. You can even enroll in home study programs, online learning and distance instruction. You just have to find the right instructor that can teach you everything there is to know about this healing technique so you get your money’s worth.
If you intend to join a class, you shouldn’t worry about if it is crowded because batches are limited to 4 to 8 students. This will allow each one to have individualized attention from the instructor aside from the manuals that will be given at the start of the class.
Everyone is more than welcome to experience and embrace what Reiki training can do. You just have to keep an open mind and let the positive energy flow within you, cleansing you of the negative energies that fill your body, mind and soul.
