Reiki is different from other healing modalities because practitioners are initiated through an attunement.
The Reiki Master uses the power of the Reiki symbols to attune the practitioner to Reiki energy. This has been done since the founder, Mikao Usui attuned his first student.
Although we are all natural healers, Reiki helps us to fine
tune these abilities. Another factor that distinguishes Reiki from other healing arts is that although the Reiki energy transmits through the practitioner into the receiver, it does not originate from the practitioner.
The practitioner does not effort to manipulate the energy or decide where the energy should go. They are witnesses who observe the energy. Because the practitioner focuses
on BEING rather than DOING, the practitioner is not using their own personal energy.
In a Reiki session although there are hand positions, these are
fluid and the practitioner knows that the body of the recipient is drawing in the energy to the specific areas that require it.
As our understanding of our bodies deepen, including how our memories are stored and the genetic memory we carry with us from birth, we know that a single belief can wreak havoc on the physical body. That energy which can be stored in a single cell, can impact all aspects of physiology and anatomy of its hosting body.
Reiki is not only a tool for balancing but also for increasing awareness. Healing and growth can occur spontaneously but more often they require dedicated focus and consistency in order to shift.
Our bodies are miraculous machines. Multitudes of amazing
processes are occurring in you without you even needing to consider them.
