In 1864, Mikao Usui was born in Japan and raised by Christian missionaries. He grew up a devout believer. When asked if he believed in Jesus' miracles, he said, "Yes." But when challenged to prove his faith by performing a similar miracle, not only could he not perform it, but his entire belief structure was shaken to the core.
This led him to a simple question: "How did Jesus heal?" He studied the Bible, but found no answer. He looked at other systems such as Shintoism and Buddhism. Since the Buddha was not a god, but an actual man from India, he studied ancient Sanskrit texts. There he discovered symbols which would lead him, through prayer and meditation, to the unique healing system which has come to be known as Reiki.
Reiki for Beginners retells this story and traces its development through the years. It also reveals some of the secrets and traditions of this healing system. You will learn how to prepare for a Reiki Empowerment (initiation) and what to expect after you receive one. You will learn about the differences between the levels of Reiki. You will also discover in this book how a Reiki practitioner works, what the 12 hand positions are, and what Reiki healers do to work with the energy that heals.
The energy used in Reiki is universal and can easily be adapted to a wide variety of purposes. The list of what you can do with Reiki is almost endless! You can use Reiki to heal yourself and others physically, mentally, and emotionally. It can help you with spiritual and personal growth, including developing compassion, wisdom, and patience. You can use it to heal animals, or to improve relationship problems at work, school, or home.
Many people are using Reiki in combination with other healing techniques such as reflexology or aromatherapy. If you are already using such a healing technique, or are thinking of learning one or more of them, you might want to add Reiki to your healing procedures.
This system can also be of great help to you in day to day life. You can use it to relax yourself before going into stressful situations such as exams, interviews, or public speaking. The calmness can be the source of better results. You can also use it on yourself to improve your creativity, memory, or learning capacity.
The potential for Reiki is almost unlimited. The energy follows thought, so whatever you want can be influenced by Reiki. The book explains how to use it and gives many examples from actual practitioners.
If you have been wondering what Reiki is and whether you should learn it and use it, this book is for you. What you need to know is here.
