Reiki is word made from the Japanese words ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’. ‘Rei’ refers to the heavens, the infinite spiritual world whereas ‘Ki’ refers to earth or the physical body of the person. In fact, all the ancient philosophies and civilisations believed that everything in this universe, between this ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’, is made up of five elements – earth, water, fire, air and ether. Every thing is connected to both.
Reiki, if in perfect harmony, flows freely through the body and removes the potential heaviness caused by ‘Ki’. This energy has restorative and healing power, which helps in bringing ‘Ki’ to the right balance with ‘Rei’. This ‘Rei-Ki’ energy flow balance can be harnessed by the practitioners of Reiki. This is also taught in the Rishikesh Reiki teacher training courses (TTCs) but only by experienced teachers.
Reiki Training Levels…
Generally, the full-fledged Reiki training is imparted through 4 levels. These are: Level 1, Level 2, Master and Grand Master. Reiki Grand Master is the highest level and it is the Teacher Certification level as well. For those who are inclined towards learning reiki, make sure the Reiki healing centres and teachers adhere to this basic tenet of its philosophy.
The Five Principles of Reiki Training
1. Kansha Shite (Be grateful)
2. Okolu-Na (Don’t get angry)
3. Shinpai Suna (Don’t worry)
4. Go Wo Hage Me (Work hard)
5. Hito Ni Shinetsu Ni (Be kind to others)
Reiki – Scientific Explanation
All of us know that electricity flows through our body. There are electric impulses sent through our nervous system in bi-directional communication from brain. Then there is electric current flowing through our blood from heart which goes all over the body. And, there are liquid crystals in every cell on which, when pressure is applied, the piezoelectricity is produced. Therefore, electric current flows throughout body which acts as a conductor.
The flow of current through a conductor produces magnetism. Within our bodies, bio-magnetism is produced which penetrates and surrounds the body. Every organ also has bio-magnetism around it, with heart having the strongest field which is effective till 15 feet distance. This bio-magnetism cumulatively creates the aura around our body. So, Reiki, as free flow of energy, does hold effectiveness for healing purposes.
