The Japanese practice of Reiki is a sort of energy therapy that places an emphasis on the use of very light touch in order to speed up the process of emotional and physical healing. The Master channels the healing energy that comes from the life force of the universe into the student, who then uses it to heal themselves. The student first absorbs the energy, and then uses specific hand positions on the client in order to speed up and improve the healing process. It is possible that the approach includes either lightly stroking the body with the hands or making direct touch with it. Either way, both are valid options. There are many different types of Reiki that a practitioner uses and this article explores the history and differences between the Reiki styles.
The idea behind the efficacy of Reiki is that the light hand touching of clients appears to calm their nervous systems, which in turn helps the body to heal itself. This is the notion that underpins the practice's effectiveness. It's likely that stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system will help the body reset its immune system and give it a boost, and this would be a beneficial outcome.
There are a lot of different ways in which a physical ailment might get entrenched in the body and be misinterpreted as trauma. When I was originally diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only did it present challenges to my body, but it also put a significant emotional strain on me. This was especially true in the beginning of my treatment.
Imagine that you were in charge of everything that went on in your life, and then suddenly someone took that control away from you. Those who are battling chronic illnesses may be more susceptible to experiencing some level of psychological distress as a consequence of this.
In the 1920s, the Japanese technique known as Reiki is said to have been pioneered by a man named Mikao Usui. In 1925, one of the individuals who studied under Usui was a naval physician by the name of Chujiro Hayashi. After getting Reiki treatment, Hayashi discovered that his patients healed substantially faster than they had before. Hayashi was instrumental in facilitating the spread of Reiki beyond the borders of Japan, particularly through the efforts of his student Hawaya Takata.
Hayashi mentored Hawaya Takata in the 1930's. Following that, Takata disseminated the Reiki technique throughout the rest of the western world, starting with Hawaii. Following the dissemination of Reiki throughout the western globe, Mikao Takata instructed a total of 22 individuals to attain the level of Reiki Master. These Masters, along with their students, were responsible for the development of a large number of different Reiki techniques.
There are probably hundreds, if not thousands, of types of Reiki. The several variations of Reiki are Usui Reiki, Jikiden Reiki, and Karuna Reiki®. Other forms of Reiki include The Radiance Technique®, Mari el®, Raku Kei, Tibetan Reiki, Rainbow Reiki, Golden Age Reiki, Reiki Jin-Kei Do®, Satya Japanese Reiki, Men Chho Reiki®, Jinlap Reiki, Seichim, Saku Reiki, Blue Star Reiki, Reiki Plus®, and many more.
The type of Reiki known as Usui Reiki is the one that has become the most well-known.
Jikiden Reiki is the term given to the Reiki technique that is performed in eastern countries.
Karuna Reiki® is an additional popular type of Reiki that was developed in Japan. Compassion Reiki is the name that most people give to this type of Reiki. This particular use of Reiki seeks to alleviate pain and suffering for all forms of life, which is the underlying goal of the practice.
The application of Reiki can be carried out using a wide number of different methods. Every kind of Reiki is predicated on the principle of promoting the emotional and physical well-being of those who are receiving it.
In each method, the Master teaches the apprentice how to accept the universal life force from the teacher. The apprentice then practices what they've learned.
The five guiding principles of Reiki are as follows: one should not worry, one should practice thankfulness, one should be slow to rage, one should live honestly, and one should be polite to every being.
These guiding principles are adhered to by each and every type of Reiki Master.
