WHAT IS REIKI? (pronounced Ray-Key) is a method of natural healing based on the use of Universal Life Force. It is channelled through the practitioner's/master's hands. It is suitable for everyone, and cannot harm in any way. Reiki is always totally safe and appropriate, making it suitable for everyone - children, adults, and animals.
The Reiki Principles are five simple statements describing how to live - just for today. This is usually explained when you first join a Reiki group, or take a workshop ready for an attunement. Just for today reminds us to stay present in the moment, rather than regretting yesterday or concerning ourselves with tomorrow.
The Reiki Principles:
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not be angry.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.
Everyone can be attuned, and learn Reiki, the attunement is also called an empowerment, and is the heart of Reiki. The Reiki teacher helps to facilitate the attunement, and this aligns the chakras in a wonderful way. It is in reality clearing and revealing ones inner pure nature. The attunement is a very profound, loving, and compassionate event during which the Reiki master/teacher and the student become one, and the experience can be as powerful for the teacher as the student. The first attunement in particular is a very cleansing and clearing event, that has the ability to change the way you think feel and see a great deal.
