Reiki Certification, Level One
Reiki (ray-key) means Universal Life Energy. Reiki is a hands on healing modality that can assist in healing measures of all capacity. Reiki will help in body, mind and spirit, by facilitating the healing of the whole person. Reiki involves the use of gentle, light touch applied to the body to transmit healing energy. The system of Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in 1922, Dr. Usui went on a twenty-one day Buddhist training course held on Mount Kurama. It is not known for certain what Usui was required to do during this training, though it most likely involved meditation, fasting, chanting, and prayer. It is said that Usui had gained knowledge and spiritual power to apply and attune others to what he called Reiki, which entered his body through his crown Chakra. He passed the knowledge on to others who eventually brought it to Hawaii in 1937.
The belief of Reiki is that the energy will flow through the practitioner's hands whenever the hands are placed on, or held near a potential recipient. The practitioner becomes the vessel and the universal energy is pulled up and the hands are used to apply the Reiki Energy that is in the atmosphere just waiting to be facilitated. Some teachings stress the importance of the practitioner's intention or presence in this process, while others claim that the energy is drawn by the recipient's injury to activate or enhance the natural healing processes. Reiki knows where to heal, even if a practitioner's hands are not present in the specific area.
In Level One, students learn hand placement positions on the recipient's body that are thought to be most conducive to the process in a whole body treatment.
You will be attuned in Reiki Level One so that you can apply these techniques to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well being as a healing modality.
