The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness
Dear Prospective Student,
The path of Reiki is a wonderful one, to start or guide you on your spiritual journey, as you allow Reiki to heal yourself and others. Perhaps you are new to Reiki, or have taken a class with another teacher. In any case, I am honored to have you consider taking or re-taking Reiki classes with me.
Reiki is a Japanese word that can be translated as “Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy.” In practicing Reiki, we can re-charge our bodies, minds and spirits, by connecting to the unlimited energy (chi) of the Universe. Reiki is not a religion; it is an Eastern practice that works with the subtle energy fields of the human body. That being said, many find that Reiki deepens their connection to God/Spirit/their Higher Power.
Reiki is a meditative practice that is very easy to learn. The ability to tap into Reiki is awakened in the student during a Reiki class. The founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui, instructed his students to focus on self-care and the precepts, which led to working intuitively when sharing Reiki with others. Reiki can be shared both in person and from a distance – as we are all connected. Consistent self-Reiki is the key to discovering its benefits for mind, body and spirit.
Reiki is not a substitute for, but is a complement to, traditional medical and psychological care. Studies show it increases relaxation, and it has been incorporated into several medical settings. Reiki attunements enable you to give self-treatments and treatments to others. An important aspect of the system is self-care and mindfulness, as offered in the Reiki precepts:
The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today, let go of anger
Let go of worry, and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work.
Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening,
join your hands in prayer.
Pray these words to your heart, and chant these words with your mouth
