There are many lineages of Reiki originating from the founder of the system, Dr. Usui Mikao. My lineage is of the “USUI REIKI RYOHO.” This translates into Usui System of Natural Healing.
I am fortunate to be a 7th generation Reiki Master (Master in this case meaning I have completed all of the training and attunements of this system.) from the original process of two practitioner attunements and one master/teach attunement because the Reiki System(s) has grown for better or worse depending on your point of view.
There are many new Reiki Systems that have come into the collective consciousness but all have the foundation and intention in their use. Here are the five common practices in the foundation of a Reiki System:
- Reiki Precepts (Gokai)
- Reiki Meditation and Techniques
- Hands on Healing (Tenohira)
- Reiki Symbols and Mantras (Shirushi and Jumon)
- Reiju and Attunments
What is a Reiki system used for?
A Reiki system most commonly uses “Laying of Hands” for healing ourselves or facilitating Reiki for other beings. I say being because we are all made up of the many layers of who we are. Reiki is intelligent, it is source consciousness, and it works through all the various layers of which we are comprised. Reiki works at the root cause of what is causing us dis-ease and works its way out from the root to the symptoms however this needs to be accomplished.
One of the biggest understandings I have come across for healing myself is that we are layered, and that if we keep stacking energy blockage on top of energy blockage in whatever form the blockages take, they need to be brought up into some form of awareness and transformed.
Reiki guides itself with its own wisdom to harmonize the receiver. This harmonizing comes in many ways which includes the transmuting of spiritual, emotional, and physical toxicity through the use of divine wisdom guiding non-physical life energy .
Emotional and Mental Healing
Reiki can help us heal by getting our being back on track to its blueprint by transmuting stagnant energies on any level we hold within our system. We are energetic beings and our Physical, Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual health all interlink with each other. All of these aspects are energy, including our thoughts, and not a one of these aspects is outside of our substance.
You cannot have one without the other. We are truly vibration beings and having a body is part of this experience. Reiki facilitates an environment within your being to transform energy patterns and harmonize your systems to enjoy a vibrant life.
