Reiki I Certification

Reiki I Certification


It’s impossible to explain things you don’t understand. I could tell you a lot about how Deep Tissue Massage works. But not Reiki. There is no study I could show you that explains its degrees of effectiveness on different conditions.

Even though this weekend I completed Reiki I class. We got attuned by a Reiki master, regardless of what that means. I am still not sure how one becomes a reiki master, probably just doing it a lot and getting attuned by other Reiki Master. But I can not deny, prove or disprove Reiki benefits. It does seem to promote a positive attitude and the childlike feel of wonder, which I think is a good thing.

I have a questions, however because I am not sure why would you need to be attuned since according to even Reiki founders we all already are born with this ability of life force, for self healing and healing others with our good actions, companionship, good intentions, thoughts and hugs. I did feel Reiki from other people who are not even masters but from other lady that was in a class with me. It felt like goosebumps or waves or tickles on my head. I did it on her, she felt it similarly. I tried on my husband he didn’t feel anything much just some twitching. But according to the Reiki Master teacher, you don’t have to feel it for it to work.

But what is it that it does I am still not sure, but I know it cant hurt!

I wonder would anyone feel funny goosebumps from anyone (regardless reiki practitioner or not) if someone moved their hands around our head? Just the hands and electric field that each human has? More information and possibly practice needed… to be continued, someday maybe Reiki II will have an answer. I can not talk about things that I can not have quantitative and controlled study examples. Is Reiki like buying companionship and attention which in itself is healing to people? Placebo effect?

What is your opinion? Have you had experienced with Reiki or had quantitative benefits?

Hospitals already are offering Reiki.

I think Reiki is human relationship that has certain intention. Maybe there is too much hype around something Japanese man “discovered” that’s already available to us through various avenues. If it is something more than that, than there should be more evidence and actual studies with peer reviews! Lets hope we see those soon.

This is what Reiki is according to Reiki International Center:

A Brief Overview

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Reiki Ideals to the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five prinicples of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki.

Their purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy. It must also include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.
